Subject: The Paradise Motel


Hey guys,

I must say that the purple description of the Paradise Motel's EP is just
not that accurate.  I like it, but it really is quite bloodless in places -
and the instrumentals are meandering and pointless.  The bands they were
compared to are a lot more artistically advanced and innovative - "Left
Over Life to Kill" sounds like a Twin Peaks version of the Bad Seeds'
slower moments, and the vocals are pretty inert.

Their album may be great, I haven't heard it yet, but please try before you buy.

(I have nothing against them personally, but I have been caught out by
fulsome praise before ...)

                Cheers,

                        Matthew.

Subject: 13 Year Itch


While I'm out of hiding ...

I listened to the 13YI CD the other day, and I thought that while "Lonely
Is An Eyesore" defines the great mid-80s period of 4AD, the 13YI defines
the last good roster that the label had.  After that time it seems to have
fractured, but that comp has Kristin Hersh, the Wolfgang Press, Ultra Vivid
Scene, His Name is Alive, Red House Painters, Underground Lovers, Unrest,
Breeders, etc.  Since then it's been a story of departures, weirdities and
one-shot irrelevancies (some of which have been good, I might add) -
Tarnation, Air Miami, Paladins, Gus Gus, etc.  Really, Heidi Berry's
signing was a warning to us all ...

Anyone else think that 13YI has, in retrospect, a far healthier roster than
4AD 1996?   And to think we were all moaning about the decline in standards
back then.  CLOSE 4AD LOS ANGELES (or maybe let Brant run it, even if he
does hate some good bands).

                Just thinkin',

                        Matthew.

     Yes, Tony Wilson et al. tried to break the London monopoly but really

     On a lighter note - the Stockholm Monsters and Section 25 ...... aahh!
     I was reading the Factory Story and was surprised to find that the
     Stockholm Monsters ended up writing theme tunes for Football shows on
     TV. (Theme tunes seems to be an active pastime for ex-Factory bands!!)

     I take your point about the apathetic nature of the student population
     of Manchester. I agree that unless it's a BritPlop band they're not
     interested. It's sad really.... :(

     I was interested by your comment about Drum and Bass nights....I
     actually scoured the counter in Picadilly Records for a flier
     advertising such a night, with, as you've said - NO SUCCESS!!!!!!

     Well, here's hoping that Manchester wakes up!!

Subject: Re: cancelled Manchester show and the like

Date: 29/08/96 00:04 First an apology to those who don't care shit about Manchester. Sorry. Manchester has always been over-reliant on the student population for gig attendance, and at the moment said students are still away (leading to the tradtitional July/August gig drought). Even when they're here, though, it seems that when they aren't out clubbing, they want to see shit Britpop bands and their clones. Eitzel's show was cancelled due to low ticket sales, as I suspect was the reason for RHP doing likewise. It's simply not cost-effective for bands to come here to be greeted with empty halls. Even Transglobal Underground who are pretty dance-friendly less than half-filled the Uni. Bands like Bear or Coping Saw simply don't bother, even though it only means popping over from Leeds. I can't really blame the bands or the record companies for the apathy of the people here. In dance culture it's the same. Where are the Drum and bass nights? I went to the first night of Blueprint at South - an excellent brew of hip hop, drum and bass, funk and techno - and so did another 10 people. The Electric Chair, arguably the most cutting edge dance night in the city still comfortably sits in the tiny Roadhouse. Basically, people here seem to want gormless indie rock of the Oasis/Weller school or four to the floor house that sounded dated five years ago. To turn round one of Anthony Wilson's infamous quotes 'Wake Up Manchester You're Dead' PS Notice how the Muses three UK dates are in the same cities as last time. Kristin still likes it here.

It doesn't make sense to bring a new band over to the UK at all, but we try to wherever possible so people like you can see them. Unfortunately, with limited time in their schedule and nearly all the journalists/radio/tv in London we have to concentrate on London. When these people deign to write about/play the bands and we see that reflect in more regional interest we would love to have bands play outside London and do. Until then, sorry you have to travel. cliff walton - 4ad ltd PS If the Muses have to cancel it will be for as uncontrollable reason like DCD - ie an important member of the band is too ill to play. Cliff, I guess I sounded a bit harsh!! But it was MAJOR disappointment when DCD cancelled (I do understand that Lisa was ill). We see DCD so infrequently that it's such a build up, and then........ :( I understand your point about the financial implications. But really it's still the chicken and egg syndrome. I agree that Manchester and the North is so focused on BritPlop that it can't see anything else, but push a few bands up this way and MAKE them OPEN THEIR EARS. One of the most amazing sights I saw recently was Tortoise supporting Stereolab. At first there were few people watching Tortoise, then as the music started to filter through and word spread around the bar the place was heaving. The music spoke for itself. (On a shitty note though I did hear someone saying they thought Stereolab were a new BritPop band. I bet they had a surprise!!!). There are people up here that are interested...we're just not being represented. Apologies for sounding like a moaning fucker - Paul Walsh.

Hi all,

I've seen this band a few times. They are quite good. Their latest release
is a limited hand numbered CDEP called "Some Deaths Take Forever". It is
continues their death fixation in their titles. It includes a few remixes
of their songs and a version of the Triffids' "Raining Pleasure" (but with
a drum track from another Triffids song). The remixes are quite strange as
they really distort the mixing levels. Quite interesting. Just as
interesting aside, when they launched "Left Over Life To Kill", they had a
four piece string quartet accompanying them. In that quartet was Alice
Garner who is the lead in that brilliant Australian movie by Emma-Kate
Croghan, Love And Other Catastrophes.

As for mailordering this via the web, you might want to try Polyester
Records. They have web site. I can't remember the URl though. Give
Altavista a bash, I'm sure it will come up with something.

Regards, Donald

I don't know where Alvin's is, but from the looks of the little booklet
thingie that comes with the Time Stereo "UFO Doctor" video, it looks like
Alvin's is an important historical site, where an amazing alien autopsy took
place. Look around for signs and keep your nose open for strange smells, ok?
Traces of alien blood last a long time.

By the way, does anyone know what "PD-M" means in relation to Time Stereo?

Yeah, I was sort of at that show.  Who ever heard of a show actually
starting at 7:30. I got there at 7:45 and then had to wait outside
until almost 8:15 to get it. So I only saw the last 4 songs.

I left right after as I wasn't interested in the Gin Blossoms.  I figure

>Their sound is very old school 4ad.

I wouldn't go as far to call it old school 4ad, I think Paige will be
great with HNIA. I wonder if they have a deal going on with 4ad.... ??
? Anyone know ?

        DCD strikes again, this time in the biggest city of the world:
Mexico. They played just incredible. Lisa worn  a blue dress and a great
voice. She did what she wants with us, and conquered our minds with her
unique vocals.  Brendan Perry was just fab, singing in a way I will never
forget.

        The concert, in few words, was wonderful... by the way I have a
question. Could somebody tell me an average of the people that used to go
to the DCD concerts?... I will appreciate it.

        Definitely, this performance was one of the best in the year...
maybe just another 4ad presentation will be better. Thanks for take your
time to read these lines.

Gerry,

I read every 4ad-l post so you don't have to...  Here's another neat one:

Subject: lush at slimey webster hall

   From:  lorelei tremolor 

Did anyone go to the webster hall show last night?

it was a really great set, although it didn't feel like a real show, coz
they were on at 7:30 and off in less than an hour to make room for the
Gin Blossoms.  i was surprised to see lots of dedicated gala-sportin'
lush fans, though!  who all left to let in the other crowd...

emma was nearly kicked out of the place and miki actually was, for being
too loud at the bar afterwards, or something like that.  and the bouncers
were like "good for them!  those artists are f**king assholes!...they're
english, too- same thing, english, asshole."

webster hall is the slimiest of slimey venues/clubs in new york city.  as
emma walked away she was like "this is the worst f**king venue i've ever
played at!!!!"  and gave the finger to the buff bouncer boys.  you go
girl!

lushous lor
