Greetings.
Occasionally folks query this list for info regarding the purchase of
the This Mortal Coil and Cocteau Twins box sets.  I just wanted to say
that I see both of these for retail sale quite frequently here in the
midwest.  If anyone would like my assistance in acquiring either of the
aforementioned releases, I would be glad to help (for a small

mmmh... in Italy a lot of people think that italian (of which spanish is a
close cousin - usually we can talk each other) is a structurally ambiguous
language, while instead english is a lot more precise, analitical and quick.
after all is the official language for informatic.  maybe what LG refer to

I apologize if this has been discussed before, I've been away for a
couple of months. Is the title an allusion to Wallace Stevens' "The

my favorite poem, but I'm curious enough to ask.

        perhaps it is the 'quickness' of english that betrays its
        essence. in my experience, the things most important to
        me are difficult to express quickly in english (spirituality,
        love, music, art in general) while it is effortless to
        order a hamburger or buy microsoft stock over the phone in
        english.

        and in terms of english being an anylitical language,
        it seems to me a sorry sort of analysis that english
        is so suited to. linear analysis and the self-fufilling
        prophesy which we call the 'scientific method'.

        this is why poetry in english is so often so terrible,
        and also why when it is done well, it is so pleasing.
        a tricky language indeed.

        practical language(s) arent able to convey the spirit
        as well as private, spiritual language(s) for lisa.
        brendan's lyrics, however, to me are often packed with
        spirituality. the song 'spirit,' for example.
        one of the priceless aspects of a dcd record is that
        the verbal and the non-verbal come together, intermix
        with eachother and combined are able to 'make a road
        for the spirit to pass over'.  the song 'rakim' for me
        displays this synergy perfectly and with much grace:
        lisa singing sounds and then brendan singing words.

        i forget where, but i've read a description of the english
        language as the 'chattel of kapitalism': a language tailor-
        made for unequal exchange.  'this language takes you away
        from the truth' because it is used more for advertising,
        swindling, and political doubletalk than for conveying
        'truth', or even discussing 'truth'.  Orwell prophesied
        a society where words were divorced from their meanings.
        'the ministry of love' in his novel is actually the
        ministry of war, etc...  in the USA we have a 'justice
        department'....

Subject: Re: Mas DCD in Mexico


on english:

i have spent a lot of time trying to learn what the difference between
myself-speaking-polish (my native language) and myself-speaking-english was.
one thing i have discovered quite recently is that it is much easier
for me to speak about emotions in english. my english friends say they
find it difficult but that may be because they have been witnesses to
a lot of language abuse. i have the same in polish - some things seem really
unspeakable.

personally i disagree with lisa. english is as far from the truth as any other
language. to convey a spiritual meaning one has to provide much wider a range
of signs than verbal ones solely. music is certainly a better way.

on the other side, i must say i find many DCD songs very narrative. "towards
the within" for example tells a story to me and "sanvean" seems to fulfill
its subject entirely, so that adding any kind of lyric to it would be useless.
the meaning is subjective to me, certainly, but are you really sure you
always understand the stories you are told by people?

The Ministry of Peace was actually the ministry of war, The Ministry of Love bei
g
the terrifying place where Winston Smith was tortured.  The Ministry of Truth,
meanwhile, was the place where all the state's lies were cooked up...

But to get back to the subject, perhaps one reason that English is open to all t
e
criticism it has been receiving on this list (and and is guilty as charged!) is 
ecause
it is so widely spoken by so many people; overuse something, spread it far too
thinly then of course it is going to perform poorly at times; a band playing 200
gigs
in a year will *probably* play a few more crap gigs than a far less talented ban

playing 20 times in the same year, perhaps?  Just a thought.

That's enough off-topic rambling for me, anyway

it pained me to read this... simply because of 2 things.
1. i believe it.
2. when i saw his name is alive 2 years ago sunday april 17,
i was blow away and amazed that such a small group of musicians
could play with such passion and beauty.  as a four piece (matt smith
on 2nd gui), they were wonderful... i hope for everyone else
that looks forward to seeing them, or drives hundreds of miles,
or sacrafices some other important event in their life, that
you dont get screwd over by hnia... they really can
play as a band, ive seen it done twice
before, but it sounds like a bit too late for most other people..
im really sorry...

my suggestion... buy hnia live in mexico for $5 from time stereo..
sew two buttons on your socks, stand them up on a spinning turntable
and put on hnia live in mexico... it sounds like that would be
a better deal.

Subject: Re: Curve


Too bad about the artwork.  I liked the style they had been using...

Alan Moulder is also co-producing and engineering the forthcoming album.

The Garbage situation is one reason I'm so ecstatic about Curve's reunion.
I recall thinking to myself, upon first hearing Garbage's "Stupid Girl", "Oh
god...what a Curve ripoff.  Too bad Curve aren't around to show them who's
boss of THAT..."  Well, now they're around again.  And I wonder exactly how
it will be handled...

Back in the "good ol' days" of MTVs 120 Minutes when Dave Kendall actually
made an effort to expand the narrow scope of corporate-driven American
so-called alternative music, a band like Curve got some attention (and
interviews and stuff, too).  I actually wouldn't be surprised if it were
overlooked, but a part of me wants Curve to really play the game a little
and make their point, ya know?  Integrity and obscurity don't have to be so
interdependent.  If the alternative mainstream (now there's an oxymoron) is
suddenly into the sounds offered by Garbage, Curve would (and do) blow them
away like a cheap screen in a hurricane.

Subject: Commercials...


It doesn't stop there!  Last night I witnessed yet ANOTHER commercial
featuring a beloved band and song...this time it wasn't a 4AD-er, though.
There's some hair color commercial with St. Etienne's "Mario's Cafe" playing
in the background.  I was stunned.  It's just so WEIRD to hear that.

So what's the tally at this point?

Volkswagen  --  Lush "Sweetness & Light"
Burger King  --  Modern English "Melt With You"
Santa Fe Cologne (is that what it was called?) -- This Mortal Coil "Fond
Affections"
Fruitopia  -- Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush  (although these were originals)
Random Hair Coloring Stuff -- St. Etienne "Mario's Cafe"
Microsoft -- Chemical Brothers  (more than one track off "Exit Planet Dust")

I think this is a combination of two phenomena:  The people who typically
listen to this music are now in the target marketing range of 18-35, and
those same people (mainly the twentysomethings like moi) are filling up the
multimedia/marketing/advertising jobs and are coloring the media with their
own tastes.

What can I say?  It's a slow day at the office...

I would agree with this statement 100%. During almost 3 months of travel in
Europe & northern Africa some years back, I spoke little more than my native
English & broken/bad Spanish and French. Well, no problem, mon! Because
vendors knew just enough English to do business with me despite my language
deficiencies. And some of the business was good, but sometimes there was an
attempt to rip me off or charge ridiculously inflated prices. So, yes,
English has proven to be an effective swindling tool, at least in my life,
yes, indeed!

     HNIA played yesterday at the Casbah. What can I say?, it was a great
     show. It seems that Karin's laryngitis is wearing off.  They are
     playing a lot of songs from the new album.

     Warn is singing the song about Jonah and the Whale, while Trey puts on
     a cardboard box whale shaped costume and dances around the stage.

     They are selling "live" tapes of shows from previous night concerts.
     Warren tapes the show during the performance and then dubs like three
     copies and sells them for five bucks each the next day.  Buy the one
     from last night, it was a very good concert.  They are also selling a
     lot of goodies, like the ESP Summer remix album, the live in Mexico
     tape and Velour100 tapes.

     Be sure also to buy those incense sticks that smell like butter!!!

The US release of "Life" is actually a compilation of songs from both
albums. Since "Emmerdale" was never released in the US, I assume they did
this to cram as many hits as possible into one album.

Garbage. In fact, after buying their album, I had an irresistble urge to

said 'Garbage is Curve in a lighter version... a pop one'.=20

In Atlanta, Karin wore the whale costume & walked around the audience
with it on, pretending to "lipsynch" to the Jonah song. But maybe she's
just taking it a bit easy now, due to her cold.

I know, you have to be first in line for the good stuff.  I missed out by
b.s.ing with a friend of mine from The Changelings who was also in
attendance. However, I did manage to get a few of the little activity
booklets, and the Time Stereo video with the whale story & the alien
autopsy. And also incense, which I burned while watching the alien
autopsy (I don't know if they would have "smellovision", and sometimes
aliens are pretty smelly.)

Buttered popcorn is what I thought. Just like a movie theater on
Saturdays.

>>CURVE, the band who had five Top 40 hit singles and two Top 20 albums

>>At the end of 1993, and after the release of Curve's second LP, "Cuckoo",
>Toni and Dean decided to take a sabbatical away from the intensity of the
>music business. Dean produced music for a couple of films which were
>noticeably Curve-esque when they were shown on TV, gradually finding himself

>by all accounts. The couple's desire to work together again has been

>>"Pink Girl With The Blue" , "Recovery" and "Black Delilah" are the first

>six. All three tracks have been produced by Dean and Toni and mixed by Alan
>Moulder in Toni's basement (a la "Blindfold" and all the best Curve stuff) -
>which is currently the place all three are holed up producing a new Curve LP
>due for release in 1997.

>>CURVE were one of the first "indie" bands to work within the dance sector,
>employing remixes by artists as diverse as The Aphex Twin, The Future Sound
>Of London and the Drum CLub - as well as Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails -
>in the early '90s.

>>CURVE release "Pink Girl With The Blues" on Fatlip Records on September 2nd.
