I wondered that myself, I was expecting some good history about bands
like S25 ........... but all I seem to get is a string of Mick Middles
Sounds interviews and, as you said, Wanker-Wilson rewriting history. I
did notice some of the more obvious mistakes!!! If this was a Factory
list, "spot Middles deliberate mistakes" would have been a good

> I was reading the Factory Story
You mean the new book by Mick Middles, 'From Joy Division Division to New
Order - The Factory Story'? Why did he subtitle it 'The Factory Story', as
it isn't a proper Factory Story at all! It's riddled with errors anyway. In
fact nothing but a band biography with too may Wilson-isms thrown in. Wilson
loves to rewrite history!! (must be his 'Marxist' background)

The first two installments of yet another (html text only) *abbreviated*
(i.e., not too many "redundant" listings) 4AD discography are up.
Eventually will be a "lo-fi" version of Eyesore, I guess. Comments,
corrections, and additions are welcome.
and for the 5 or 6 Scheer fans (yes, you too Jeff) other that me:

Also, anyone heading up to Austin to see the Muses show tomorrow?

Just to put my 2 cents in, The Paradise Motel is definately worth a
listen, most comments so far have been pretty close to the mark,
particularly the Portishead comparisons, and there is a Twin Peaks feel
in there as well. 'Some Deaths Take Forever' may be hard to get, my copy
indicates it was limited to 2000. As far as 'Left Over Life To Kill' is
concerned it might be easier, I've lost the address to Infectious
Records, but I can give you some details off the CD cover:
DINF001 Mushroom Records International BV
I don't know if that helps anyone or not.

Just a quick note for those interested on LIAE. i was on HMV (34th
Street and 6th Ave)
yesterday, and I saw this CD there ($17.99, i think).

Et de toi fais-tu dire: 'Oh! l'homme singulier!'

hey new yorkers,
my band, Closer, is playing tonight - or tomorrow morning,
at 1:45 am
@ the Spiral, on Houston and Avenue A
so take your naps and come out to see us. :)
btw, if you've seen recent Closer fliers in record stores, with the blurry
thing that kind of resembles a negative of a face, that's my face...

Ihave no earthly idea how I got on this mailing list but since I am
getting cool information from it, what the hell. :)
This looks like it should be a nifty lil development...in the meantime,
try out an old Locust album. His stuff is difficult to get used to be
very rewarding once you've accomplished that.
BTW, the official coolest record label in the world is now Ninja Tune.

list, so please do not include him in any future mailings.
On the Locust front:
The new album wil be titled 'morning light', which sounds altogether more
positive than any of his previous productions :-) Neil Halstead (ex-Slowdive)
and Zoe(?) will apparently contribute vocals.
Speaking of vocals.
The Spanish indie-band Silvania have brought out a cd and a 12" 'galax trax',
both of which contain a Locust mix. The cat no is ED003, and it's on Elefant
Records. It's a nice one ... I only got it yesterday, so I've not had chance to
give it a proper listening.
I also obtained copies of Love and Rockets 'this is heaven' with a Locust mix
(Beggars Banquet Records [BBQ 36]) and Scala's album on Touch 'beauty nowhere'
which Mark has partly co-written and produced. Exact info will be included in
the discography which should be available to all very soon.
Locust is playing at a 5-day festival in Vienna next week.
Anybody who has more accurate information, please forward it to the list.

UR (University Reporter, a free zine for college students) has a short
review on page 10 of the recent 'special issue' (dennis miller on the
cover). It ranked in what they call 'the deans lists' wich they reserve
for the 'highest achievers.' This sums the article up: "Spiritchaser is
the band's greatest album yet." I think that's been argued before and
shot down here on 4ad-l. "Brilliant conceptual piece that brings the
spirit of nature to life through song."=20
just wanted to bring the article to our attention. (sharing the 'deans
list' with DCD: Beck, James Brown, Me'shell Ndegeocello, Stereolab; and
Meat Beat Manifesto recieved an 'A' for subliminal sandwich)

Anybody going to see Lush in LA on the 4th? I'll be there by

There's nothing quite like sweeping generalizations, they're never true. ;)

If you are one of the first 100 people to answer two VERY DIFFICULT Lush
trivia questions, you have a shot at some free Lush "500" CD singles...
I tried but the questions are just too tough!! Good luck!
Look under the "free stuff" icon...

My statement about fanzines for and about college studnets beings sickening
was not a sweeping generalisation. it's the truth.
