You're lucky!! There are only very few copies around with this pic. The hand
and the willy belong to the same person. The 'hidden willy' can also be
found in the
'Perfect Teeth' CD booklet (pages 14 & 15) and on the innerbag of the
Perfect Teeth' LP. But if you want the full picture, try to get a copy of
the Unrest 'Animal Park' 7", on Teenbeat.

Point taken. I've seen her smile sometimes. And I guess it beats being one
of those insincere idiots with perma-grins (most of them end up on television).

I have the same thing that Chris and Brant mentioned, except that I'm
someone who doesn't *talk* very much. People really think there's something
wrong with you if you're not constantly gabbing.

Hey Folks--

Rumor had it that some record company was going to compile the mid-80's eps
by the Jacobites (ie--Shame for the Angels, Pin Your Heart..., When the
Rain...) on CD.  This was around the time that the 2 studio LPs were
re-issued--I think by Regency in the UK and Mammoth in the US.  I've
contacted Mammoth and they do not plan to issue any more Jacobites' discs in
the US because the others have sold poorly.  I've seen listings for a couple
of new titles released in the UK or on the Continent.  Do any of these
include the ep's?  I'm especially curious about an album called "Hawks Get
Religion."  It's been advertised as a compilation with unreleased material,
but I can't get a track listing.  I know there was an earlier compilation
called "Fortune and Fame."  Does anyone know if this contained any of the ep
tracks?

Thanks for your time.  Any info would be much appreciated.

Subject: Re: Smiling (Emma)


I must agree with Emma when it comes to the smiling thing.  But I also agree
that her demeanor can sometimes be one of a complete BITCH.  I ran into her
at the bar at a Lush show once (while the opening act were playing) and said
"Hi. Look forward to your show tonight..." and she looked at me as if I'd
just farted.  \/\/hatever.  L7 are more polite.  I still love Lush and think
Emma's a cool guitarist and songwriter, but she needs to adjust that
attitude just a little.

But as for the smiling business...I hate it when someone comes up to me at a
bar or club and says "You should smile!"  What the fuck is that supposed to
mean?! I look around and _I_ don't see everyone with a silly grin pasted on
their faces! At WHAT am I supposed to be smiling if I'm just standing there
by myself??  I think someone saying that is just their lousy way of breaking
the ice...

 Actually they decided to call it quits several months prior to the
 release of the album.  This "news" is about a year old.

 Found the CDs of "Catch the Breeze" and "Holding Our Breath" in a
 second hand shop on Saturday (since I already have the EPs on vinyl
 and the Blue Day CD, this was a bit of a trainspotter's purchase),
 which prompted a weekend of immersion in Slowdive - whereas Ride
 started off as shoegazers and promptly fell victim to Creation's "try
 to sound like the Small Faces/Love/Stones/Procul Harum" ethic,
 Slowdive started off in much the same territory and then changed
 without compromise or imitation.  They just threw away styles and
 sounds that other bands would have latched onto for their whole career
 - the indie/dub of "Souvlaki Space Station", the techno/etherial "In
 Mind", for instance.  Neither song has any precedent or any descendants
 but despite sounding unlike other Slowdive songs there isn't any
 feeling of forced, difference-for-the-sake-of-it change, as there is in
 Ride's pitiful decline.

hey guys,

after seeing throwing muses wednesday night, i came home and started
to watch kristen's performance at the all virgos are mad in store
appearrance.  when i started the tape, it was at the point where
masters/warren were playing.  while i'm watching this, they start
playing a song that has the (i'm almost positive)exact same guitar
part as "this world is not my home".  can anyone, who has this video
that some kind soul(i remember his name... i just don't want him
to get hundreds of requests for a copy) recorded, confirm this?
i lent my copy to a friend the next day, and have forgotten about
it until today.

also, i saw the wedding present in washington, dc thursday night.
david gedge is so good.  i know the new single "2,3, go" is out, but
when does the full-length come out?

and another thing, i drove through the eye of hurricane fran to see
the cure in atlanta friday night.  i would not have gone, but i had
five other people's tickets.  if ten years ago someone would of said
one day i would see shirtless rednecks drinking bud at a cure concert,
i would have fell to the ground in hysterics.  egads...
the axl rose/kick boxer guy dancing near me was even scarier.  after
the show, i was glad i went.  i've seen them five times previously, and
this was the first time i witnessed "faith".  i returned home last night
to durham, nc to find that power was still out.  it took me about fifteen
minutes to back into the shower this mourning.

i'll stop bitching now.  if anyone has an answer to my question, could
you please email me.

"Hydro", I think, is an homage to (and reducto-ad-absurdam of) Stereolab,
whom Unrest toured with (and released a split single with) in 1993. It's
got that "single chord drone with occasional changes" sound that a lot of
Stereolab has. If you like "Hydro" I'd definitely recommend that you
check out Stereolab -- try "Transient Random-Noise Bursts With
Announcements" first, as it's the album that was current at the time they
and Unrest were touring, and it features the 17-minute "Jenny Ondioline",
an excellent very long track.

>But what about 'rock' artists/groups making long pieces? Is this still
>regarded as pompous/pretentious twaddle?

There's always Sonic Youth's "Expressway To Yr Skull", which on the LP
version is infinitely long thanks to a lock-groove at the end.

Bark Psychosis' "Scum" (available on their "Independency compilation,
it's great, buy it) is a 21-minute masterpiece that goes from slowed-down
jazzy dub to sheets of white noise and back again...

Most of the good long rock pieces being done now seem to be strongly
influenced (in ways other than length!) by
ambient/techno/dub/electronica, which in my book tends to make them quite
interesting. Whereas the dreaded 70's prog-rock extravaganzas were
usually influenced by boring Romantic-era classical music (ELP were major
offenders here.) The exception there being some of the "Krautrock" bands
(Neu!, Can, etc.) whose influence on current music is a very positive one.

Subject: Desperately seeking Medicine's "5ive" EP on Creation...


I've been trying to find this EP for years in stores, but I've only seen
a copy of it _once_, in a radio station. I've been obsessed with the
version of Time Baby on it ever since (even the version with Liz
Frasier's vocals isn't a patch on "Time Baby II", as far as I'm
concerned). If I'd known how much trouble it was going to cause me, I
would have stolen the damn thing. I _really_ want a copy badly -- I will
pay _well_ for it and might be amenable to trading away rarities. If you
have a copy that you're willing to part with, get in touch with
me. Barring that, if anybody has a copy that they'd be willing to dub
onto tape for me, that would be an acceptable 2nd.

desperately yours,
ozymandias

No, only the Magnetic Fields song is on that comp, and it's from SpinArt,
not Slumberland. "House Of Pancake" is, I believe, on the "Brokedick Car"
EP (and the original "Pancake" is on "Blondertongueaudiobaton".) Not sure
about the Versus song, it might be on "Dead Leaves".

I'm sorry but this is one of the stupidest things i've read that's come
from atn.  damn, they're usually right on.

first of all, they reported the breakup themselves way back in december so
it's stupid that they're trying to make it sound like news now.

then, as someone else points out in later message (yes, i can see the
future), Idha (not Ida) is married to Andy, not Mark.  She's actually one
of the biggest reasons for the band's breakup, in a roundabout way.  the
kool-aid part is right.  i didn't know about stick.  Mark is actually
working with a couple of people i believe; someone from big audio dynamite
or something.  the only duo around is Andy and some guy named Alex Lowe.
That's Andy's new "band" that played the lollipop fest.

the groop played ambient bachelor pad music is an excellent choice for

speaking of SY, what about lee's "from here to infinity" where eery track
has a lock groove (you have to move the needle each song :(

and thurstons solo psychic hearts has the 21 minuite eulegy for all the
dead rock stars, great piece.

                How might I subscribe to this list?  I had tried quite some time
ago
and all of my requests got bounced back so I assumed the list didn't
exist anymore.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: DCD red vinyl 12"


At Tower Records I saw a red vinyl 12" which features 'Nierika,'
'Dedicace Outo' and 'The Snake and the Moon.'  On the label is
a DCD logo (the same one in the tour programme, I think) but no
4AD logo.  The only other thing on it (apart from the titles) is
DCD 2 and 'Tony' with what looks like a London phone number.  Can
anyone shed light as to what this actually is?  I have a feeling
it's not related to the PIAS single release that Huite posted a
while back since there's a sticker on the sleeve saying 'Made in
England.'
