yo la tengo put on one of the best shows i have ever seen in my entire
life. they really rock in concert. they even had a theremin on stage and
used it amazingly. james mcnew is one of rock and roll's best kept
secrets. if you like muzik check james mcnew from yo la tengo's solo
project stuff under the name "DUMP." all tracks are recorded on to the
four track. pretty lo-fi, but all are gems. it's on brinkman records. dump
records are like lou barlow's sentridoh recordings, but a little more
poppy. i love all the yo la tengo records, but the highlights are
definitely "president yo la tengo/ new have hotdogs" which has just been
re-released. "the asparagus song" is worth it. "from a motel six" is their
most fuzzy record. some great highlights on that record. i also love their
latest record, "elecrto-pura." it soundz like luna in some parts and in
other parts like luna with an out-of-control attitude. yo la tengo though
always sound better live. all four times were orgasmic.

the first tortoise record is not as ambiant as the latest. it's more
conventional. it's good. the guitars have a little more weight on it. the
latest one shifts from guitar to drums, to xylophone.

Wasn't there a single called Pump Up the Volume out around this time by
the hiphop group Technotronic?  Did M/A/R/R/S write it maybe?

What's a M/A/R/R/S anyway?  ;)

Indeed it was. Cat. no. AD707 (and various others...) Check Lars' "eyesore"
for further info (http://www.ifi.uio.no/~larsi/html/group/marrs.html).

A CD single _was_ released 4th & B'Way in 1987. I couldn't find any info on
a vinyl version by 4th & B'Way, but if you have it, it exists...

Subject: Oneironaut 7"


It has been mentioned here before, but the details were pretty sketchy, so:

7"
ONEIRONAUT
'City' (5:38)/ 'Nine Inch Arm' (2:53)
DERBY RECORDS (RACE 003)

Both songs were written and performed by Ian Masters (Pale Saints/Spoonfed
Hybrid/ESP Summer). 'City' is a wonderful, spacey track, closer to Spoonfed
Hybrid than to Pale Saints. 'Nine Inch Arm' is a short instrumental,
sounding like Masters' has listened to a lot of 70's film soundtracks.

Sleeve designed by Timothy O'Donnell, currently working for v23.

And before you are going to ask... It's available from:

Derby Records
12311 Adelle Street
Garden Grove
CA 92641
USA

$ 3.75 (USA) / $ 5,- (outside USA). Prices include postage.

I only know The Happy Family's 'The Man On Your Street' is the worst selling
4AD LP of all time. (and I think it's safe to assume that In Camera '13
(Lucky For Some)' is the worst selling CD!)

So why did 4AD re-issue The Happy Family on CD? Because their singer, Nick
Curry, went on to become Momus.

Hi Folks:

Has anyone been to any of the Dead Can Dance concerts?  I saw them Tuesday
8/6, my first experience of them live.  They were grand!  Of course, I do
love them dearly.

I'm always on the lookout for articles, trivia about the band.  Anyone have
any references?

Thanks!

Subject: Kelli-Jeanne Drum, send my money back!


Well, I am sure the list is damn tired of me posting about this every
few months.  I am tired of posting this.  But she wrote saying she
read only one of many many emails to her telling her I want the Vaughn
Oliver book that i sent her money for ( back in late 1994!).  So,
consdering she won't read or respond to personal email, I have to
keep bringing it here.  I also do it so people can take some caution in
their dealings and tradings.  This was the only bad trader i have met
in 100's of trades over the net.  There is no other way to describe
someone who takes your money, supposedly purchases you a book, and
then fails to send it for over a year and a half.  She now says she
would rather send the money back, well, please do! I have written a
few times concerning this, so get it straightened out and send my
money back.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  Somehow she calls me
cruel for wanting whats mine!  and that i would be 'pissy' if she sent
it and it didn't arrive in good shape. Well, I think I would have
quite a right to be 'pissy' after all this time, usually people make
some kind of effort to package things properly, I don't think it is
a Herculean effort, but to her...

I _do_ apologize to the list. maybe many of you have no problems
trading with this person, great for you, i am glad you haven't endured
the crap i have!

There was a 3" CD single with her versions of The Cranberries "Dreams" and
Cocteau Twins "Bluebeard", released to promote her debut movie "Chungking
Express" in Japan. She also made a video for one of the songs from
"Impatience" but it isn't one of the Cocteau's compositions.

Did you pay for this via the US Postal System?  If so, this is mail fraud.
Talk about 'pissy', give them a call and she'll know the meaning of the
word.

All it takes is one of those padded envelopes for less than a buck.  Jeez,
she could stick a stamp and address sticker on it and it probably wouldn't
be too bad.
