Just saw the Rachel's--they were fantastic.  I won't bore you all with
the details, but I did want to mention their merchandising.  Not only do
they have their first two albums for sale (both CD and Vinyl, except
they were out of vinyl _Handwriting_) and T-shirts, they also have
coffee mugs and flip-books.  See them if you get a chance. Their live
show is every bit as good as the albums, occassionally surpassing that
which has been committed to tape.

maybe you would like the brother's quay more low-attention span needed
short animation films. i thought the pace of Institute Benjamenta was
excellent. i think the the plot is set loosely to give way to more grander
themes and symbolism

have you seen the brother's quay films for his name is alive? i definitely
recommend them highly. the brothers also did a film for singer michael
penn (the brother of actors sean and chris). they do have that this mortal
coil texture about them.

the brothers quay are probably my favorite living directors (kieslowski,
we will miss you...). i wish people would see these films, and since the
worked for ivo to do the two hnia films than they are definitely legit to
talk about. if people can start talking about warren de lafever's (i'll
give credit to godzuki for the funny spelling) intentions than the
brother's quay are in.

G'day,

  I'm after a copy of RHP's 'Shock Me' CD single. I notice that it is
available via a few US import stores. Are they just importing via the
UK? If so, do any list members in the UK know whether this single is
still generally available? It may be easier for me to order this from
England rather than from the US.

Underworld's 'Spikee/Dogman Go Woof' single is still available in the
UK,
that would be great.

Thanks, Geoff



hey there geoff,

well, i'm actually not from the u.k., but hopefully i can answer this
one for you anyway.
the 'shock me' ep *is* out of print. the reason that there seem to still
be copies floating around (fewer and fewer all the time) in the u.s. is
that they've been sitting at various distributors.
a couple of months ago, i bought six or seven brand new copies that i
could sell (at cost, obviously) to people through the rhp site, just as
a service to other fans who couldn't find it.
if you, or anyone else on the list still needs one, i think i've got,
like, two left. after that i may still be able to get some more or at
least point people in a decently-priced 'other' direction.

if you still need help, let me know.

take care,
          K-

p.s., none of the dates on your side of the pond have been 100%
confirmed yet, but when they have been (by island), they'll be up at the
site within a day or two.

Subject: Silly web page... no 4AD


This is a silly web page:

        http://www.etter.ch/midimirror/framdir.htm

It has no 4AD content (I wish there was)

If you can play midi-files / have the QuickTime Musical Instruments plug-in
installed you could have some FUN... It's a big collection of stupid
pop-midi-files (Cure, Cranberries, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Madonna,
Carpenters etc.) Everything sounds like cheap elevator muzak!

They should add some 4AD sounds (Cocteau Twins, Belly, Michael Brook, Dead
Can Dance and Red House Painters could be great midi-artists!)


Yes, I'm bored.

Try the official Xymox home page, run by Ronny and Hans.

The page listed above points you to the Muscoviet Mosquito lyrics.

John, such a fan of Xymox that he once covered "Obsession" in a high
school band

        I'm going on a trip to Denver, Colorado this weekend (August 30
through September 2).  Anyone know of any thislisty or
obthislisty bands (or any other good bands for that matter) that
will be performing there at that time?  Again, those dates are
August 30 through Sept 2.  Thank you very much.

Hi all fellow californians,

I noticed that rhp and muses played San Francisco. Does anyone know if
they're playing LA this week. We didn't get our Sunday paper so I am
clueless as to what's going on this week.

Please email me personally.

Thanks,

Where did RHP play in Berkeley. I say no advertisement for them in BAM or
the S.F. Guardian.

In a message dated 96-08-23 16:13:35 EDT, you write:

<< wuxtry records and criminal records are less than a quarter of
 a mile apart.  >>

actually its wax n fax, not wuxtry that is near criminal.. definitely go to
wax n fax, you'll find a much better selection of used cd's, and new stuff
too. Lotsa vinyl.    best buy wont have most of what you are looking for
(except the Cumberland mall store which has alot for some reason).
Oh, and Little 5 doesnt charge for parking if you tell the slacker attendant
that you are shopping at the strip.  Luckily for me, i live within 2 miles of
most of this area, so i never have a problem getting stuff.  If you live out
in the stix, why dont you try ordering from EAR/rational?

Subject: Review: The Paradise Motel


G'day,

Found this review of Australia band The Paradise Motel. Thought it might
interest a few folk on the list (I love this band, BTW):

>
THE PARADISE MOTEL
       Left Over Life To Kill
       (Infectious)

THE most enthralling, spacial, delicate, minimalist band to ever emerge from
Australia, exceed expectation with a debut seven-track that in 25 chilling
minutes swirls through a universe of mood and breathe so sparkled, so
shadowed, so solar and spectral, it seems likely to collapse in on
itself. Yet such is the control of The Paradise Motel that the hairline
trigger between artistic indulgence and atmosphere is never pulled.
Imagine the Cocteau Twins with the ambience of the Cowboy Junkies on The
Trinity Sessions; imagine Portishead bathed in incandescent light while a
waterfall streams fireworks deeper and moodier, brighter
and more organic, living and gulping in existence while the chariots of
the damned chase the song of the siren across the skies. Imagine
keyboards rippling across a pond of sensitivity while guitars chime in
salute to their divinity. Imagine a woman's voice so perfect it
hangs life and death in its very cadences. Imagine lyrics that dig from the
subconscious loops of memory, images and sensations, that trigger unbidden
thoughts, lost times, barely remembered sentiments, lovers and losers, sex and
hate, the single bead of perspiration on a full lip that could be a lone tear
or a pinprick of joy. They are all The Paradise Motel. The voice belongs to
Merida Sussex, the lyrics (mostly) to Charles Bickford and the instrumental
interludes to Matthew Aulich. Add an aural tapestry interweaving electric
guitars, acoustic guitar, Hammond organ, bassoon, French horn, cello,
violin, viola, bass and drums, stare at the stars, unshackle your heart
and journey. The Paradise Motel is open ...

I don't know if their stuff has been released in the US or UK yet,though...

Cheers,
Geoff
