    Tell the people you are a student, ask for a special

    I think that would be great.

    Or.........is it that boring ?

  And could someone in London phone 4ad and ask them

  Like what will be the Gus Gus catalog number, etc...

  Just say it is for the 4ad list members, or

Worldwide, I believe it was DCD's "Into The Labyrinth", although I don't have
the exact figures, but I do remember reading this somewhere.

I would say that it would have to be something by DCD if only due to their
broad audience appeal.

Well, Dead Can Dance ARE 4AD's most profitable group on the label
worldwide after all!  They even sell more than Red Atkins!!!

it seems i always see tanya at the throwing muses shows i've been to since
tanya left...usually slightly sulky- or bored-looking as she stands off to
the side of the stage.

really??  like you, i've seen the muses quite a few times (if not 25, maybe
15+ over the past 9 years) as i grew up in the boston/providence area (do
you remember those shows at the living room?  sigh).  but i always felt the
striking feature about their shows was that they trotted out new songs i'd
never heard every time i saw them, and rarely played anything from the
first album.  in fact, i don't think i heard much of anything earlier than
'hunkpapa' after 1989-1990, until a show in fall 93 where they played
'vicky's box.'

in winter 1990 kristin played two solo shows at tt the bear's in cambridge
(where i first heard some of the songs on 'the real ramona' and even 'red
heaven'), and those nights were almost like sing-alongs:  about thirty of
us packed into the tiny club while she did everything in her repertoire,
including several songs from the first album.  i'm just wondering if you're
really lucky, i'm really unlucky, and what other people's experiences were
like.

I am familiar with exactly one song by TM, namely "Dizzy",
which I have on the "Just Say Mao" disk.
Q. How typical/representative of TM is "Dizzy"?  Qualified as
typical of a particular period in TM's development?
Thanks!

Yes, according to Sept. 96 issue of A.P. (the one with the lovely photo of
Lisa & Brendan on cover) "Into the Labyrinth" was 4ad's biggest commercial
success at 750,000 copies sold worldwide.

Uhm.  Both "Last Splash" and "Star" sold over a million copies, I seem
to remember.  I seem to remember that "Last Splash" sold 1.5 mill in
the US alone.

That is probably the least typical Muses song their is.  In fact that is the
one song you will never hear them play ever again.  It is one of their more
popular singles, but Kristin is not a big fan of it.

It's worth every damn penny and more. Do not hesitate to buy it! My favorite

I had the chance to chat with Robin Hurley, the main man at 4AD US
this morning and was able to ask him about what is forthcoming with 4AD
for the rest of '96.  Here is the list of releases as of August 15th.
Catalogue numbers and dates are for the UK...

      Aug. 12th

   Planned for '97 are new albums from Tarnation (4AD worldwide except
North America) and Mojave 3 plus a previously unreleased Belly track on a
second "Friends" soundtrack.  The [part one] words seen on the "Universal
Frequencies" 7" and CD from His Name Is Alive was done with the idea that
there would be parts two and three, which MIGHT happen in '97, hopefully.
More info on all of this and more yet to come...

   The "Death To The Pixies" retrospective, the Adamson/Wolfgang Press
remix best-of, Tanya Donelly's solo LP, The Jive Bombers and the limited
10" series have all been pushed back until '97 or beyond while Mojave 3
have discarded the planned "Mercy" remix EP.  And with regard to the
Brendan Perry solo album, as the Brend-ster said himeslf in the September
issue of AP, "Don't hold your breath!"  Darn!

   Rich was very nice to respond to me regarding the 4AD web page The
Site, assuring me that there will be renovations done and improvements
made to the pages.  We must be patient for the time being, however.
Thanks for the help, Rich!  Where were you when I called this morning?
Thanks to Robin for taking time out of his busy day to chat with me!!

   Lush are appearing in my town later tonight (and Friday in Montreal)
so I'm a happy camper.  It makes up for learning that the Red Atkins box
set is permanently shelved, that's for sure!

Hi,
I'm Stephane from France. Frankly, I don't know what CDA is doing now, but
they had a bunch of records in France. I don't have the informations with me
right now, but if nobody on the list can give you what you need, write me

Dizzy is really typical of Throwing Muses work in the middle of their
careers.. The music has changed pretty much on the last three albums, but
worth checking out Hunkpapa (where dizzy is on),and the real ramona.. (even
thes tuff before hunkpapa is great great great)... They have quite an
extensive amount of stuff out.

Yeah, but there's a rumor that they've split... so we should expect five
solo records, in a limited collectors box made of real mad-cow-bones! (UK
only)

I've seen some of the artwork v23 did for them: the limited Rimy River is a
cheap thing compared to those graphics!

Y'know, I've got to agree on this point.  But then again, that single was
the first piece of Liquorice recording that I heard, so everything kinda
went downhill from there (i.e. wasn't quite as impressed with the album).

The "remix" with the farm animal noises is mighty cute, tho'....

I just returned from Houston and at the airport I picked up Q magazine where
they advertise the Sundays debut, 'Reading, Writing & Artihmetic', as a
reissue. Also, they review it (giving it a great review) and, the most
important, they said that 'A new album is due out soon'. Anyone knows more
about it?

Subject: The best autumn in years!



I just have to express my joy here - this autumn will be the *best* damn
autumn in years! _Curve_ back together again with a single and an album and
a tour! _The Charlatans_ release a single in about a week and an album later
this year, _Mojave 3_ comes to Sweden and will release a couple of singles
this year with an album to be released in March next year, _Catherine Wheel_
release a b-side compilation album...

Now lets just hope that we'll see Verve (Superstar or whatever they call
themselves these days) coming out with some new stuff, Adorable get back
together again, Ride realise their mistake and do the same, My Bloody
Valentine release that album, and Slowdive release their played, but never
released songs. Then I would seriously believe I had died and gone to heaven!

 Can you say "Yaaaay!"?

I just got the Faye Wong "Impatience" cd today from Dewdrops and I'm
delighted with it. Besides the two CT collaborative tracks, the entire cd
has a real CT feel to it, almost like a "tribute album", but more original,
really. It's just wonderful to hear (but then, I love music from other
countries even more than 99% of the stuff from the good ol U.S.A.)

Anyway, Brant, I want the other Faye Wong ("Random Thinking"?), so please
let me know if and when you get it from your Hong Kong distributor.

Thank you, this is just too cool!
