Subject: HNIA & Paige Sept. 5th review


First off, let me say that His Name Is Alive played an excellent show.
Despite what some people may have thought about the shows in Texas, their Los
Angeles shows were wonderful. On Thursday, September 5th, HNIA went on at
about 9:30p.m. They played most of the songs off their new album, and one
song off the album "Mouth by Mouth". Although Karin was just getting over her
laningitis, she sang beautifully all night long. Then after they played, the
Los Angeles band, Paige, went on. They are truly an amazing band. They have
that very ethereal, yet aggressive sound to them. Marcie, the lead singer of
Paige held the audience in awe. After the show, I noticed the members of
Paige paling around with the members of HNIA. Could Paige somehow be
affiliated with HNIA or 4ad ? In either case, it was a great show, and
despite all the stupid postings that we’ve been seeing about HNIA and puppet
shows, I really think that it was a one time thing, and I would have like to
be at that show just so I could have thrown my two cents in.

Miki may have just been tired or having a bad day.  During Lush's last
visit to Toronto, I spotted Miki in the crowd watching the opening act
and chatting with a few fans brave enough to say hi.  I walked up and
asked her to sign a Lush album cover and she was totally nice about it
AND EVEN SMILED.

I'm positive L7 have had at least one instance where they didn't smile at
a fan or whatever.  I've met Miki (and the rest of Lush) a couple times
and in each case they were happy enough and behaved very politely.

        Read a couple of mails about people missing gigs so just a
        quick mail to let you of some of the gigs I've had to miss
        this past weekend:
        Lush  /  Scheer  /  Nick Cave & Simon Raymonde both doing
        a sort of spoken word thing  /  James Lavelle of Mo'Wax
        DJ'ing on a boat  /  Heidi Berry and Throwing Muses this
        sat. All were taking part in the In The City Festival in
        Dublin.
        But hopefully will catch the Divine Comedy tonite. Also
        heard Luna's "California (all the way)" in an ad for Visa.
        The joys of night-shift!

     I feel a thread based on "Great Long Drone-Type Tracks" coming on.
     So, here's my input while the topic's still fresh.

     1. Djed (Tortoise) - approx 20 mins - ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!!! (Not
     quite drone but it has it's moments, it's name the countless number of
     styles that have influenced this track!)
     2. The latest Flying Saucer Attach 'Live' CD - approx 70 mins.

     With the large amount of talent in this area surely 4AD must be able
     to sign someone!

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?

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. __________ ___________________ ________________________ Jens Alfke Recovering C++ User jens@apple.com [work] jens@mooseyard.com [play] I'll stand in front of you take the force of the blow protection _____________________________ http://www.mooseyard.com/Jens/

Good theory! But remember that 'Hydro' is one of those tracks/chord
changes/songs Unrest would work out again and again on different records
(Another one is 'The Hill', that can be found on the first 7", one of the
first tapes, the first LP, on 'Malcolm X Park' and on the 'Magic Ribbons'
7"comp).
The original, short, vocal, version of 'Hydro' is Hydroplane' from the 'Yes
She Is My Skinhead Girl' 7" (1991), Then there are 'Hydrofoil No.1', on the
UK CD version of 'Imperial', and 'Hydrofoil No.3', on the bonus 7" that came
with the UK LP version of 'Imperial' (1992). Finaly 'Hydro' from the 'Cath
Carroll' 12"/CD-EP (1993).

DCD 2 is indeed a UK promo. How the hell did it get there?

It's domestic, but I've never had so much trouble finding a 4AD release :)
The PIAS Benelux CD, containing 'The Snake And The Moon (Edit)' and 'Song Of
The Nile'  (Cat# 170.1111.24) comes in a card sleeve. The design is based on
the 'Spiritchaser' design (of course), but features that same red stole(?)

'Spritchaser', although the pic. is not the same.

Subject: the ultimate epic song


nearly ten years ago now i did a radio show here in minneapolis. i was on
from 6am-9am, and all i did was attempt to scare people as they woke up to go
on their way to work. it was a blast. one week we got a request for some
extemely long song and a debate began at the station as to whether or not we
should play a song that long. i got the brilliant idea to open the phone
lines and let people request their favorite long song. i got a huge amount of
calls and the next show i narrowed the list down to the five "finalists". i
took votes all morning on what was the ultimate epic song. third place
finisher was whipping post by the allman brothers. this was the obvious spoof
voters. second place was dark star by the grateful dead. now some of you may
scoff but at their best the dead rival or destory any so called "out-there"
artists of today or any time period. it is their modern fans that really give
them the bad name. look around for some of the live versions of dark star and
you might have your mind blown like i did. but i regress. the winner was,
easily, sister ray by the velvet underground. we searched with every
collector we knew and played every version, mostly bootlegs, that we could
find. over three hours of sister ray, including joy division's version from
still. it was glorious. i think the longest version we found was around 27
minutes from the infamous cleveland cave shows.

It's the promo for the 'Spiritchaser' album of Dead Can Dance.
It's from the 4AD headquarters in London, indeed.
I've only seen it in a clear plastic sleeve. Nice to have though.
Bought mine at Rebel in NYC for $ 11.


This is not related to the PIAS DCD single.

Cheers,

You have the normal chains, like Tower and HMV. Then you have the
regional chain, Kemp Mill Records, which has pretty good cut-out and
overstock bins (example: I've found Cocteau Twins, Harold Budd, David
Sylvian in those bins in the past.) My favorite indie store when I lived
up there was Vinyl Ink located across the line in Silver Spring,
Maryland.

I live in Atlanta suburbs now & miss the access to great stores I had in
DC. Oh, well...

Enjoy your trip,

Excuse me?  Crucifying?  Why must everyone take responses to their posts
so personally?  The article was 90% incorrect or out-of-date information.
If nobody had pointed that out then people who didn't know otherwise would
have believed it.  Unless you work for ATN and actually wrote the article,
I'm not sure why you're so hurt by my bad opinion of it.

Subject: 5 Time


5 things this time...

1. Has anyone seen a French 7-track promo CD called "Live" from Tarnation
before??  If so, could you please e-mail me a tracklisting and a
catalogue number?  Thanks!!

2. The last I heard, The Paladins new album "Million Mile Club" (CAD6015/
CAD6015CD) will be issued on October 7th in the UK.  A recent ad in
Option magazine listed a US release (46367) as being released on
September 24th.  Does anyone know if the UK date has been moved ahead as
well??  There sure are lots of other pre-4AD Paladins releases out there
judging by the various net CD stores I've surfed through lately!

3. While channel surfing Monday afternoon, I noticed a live press
conference on the community channel involving The Toronto Film Festival
and one of the films featured this year called "Albino Alligator".  The
film stars my favorite actor Kevin Spacey (who directs, too!!!) as well
as Matt Dillon and Faye Dunnaway.  Also on the panel of celebrities was
4AD's very own Michael Brook, who is doing the soundtrack.  So, keep an
eye out for the soundtrack if your into Michael Brook.  It seems he puts
out more stuff on other labels rather than 4AD lately or is it just me?

4. I've noticed a few places on the net selling a US "Slow Dust" CD
single from Belly.  Is there such a thing or is this just a Sire/Reprise
promo, specifically PRO-CD-6131??

5. ...and while on the subject of US CD singles, espeacially from Warner
Bros., what is the purpose of putting out R.E.M.'s (and other bands) new
single out on a two-track CD single as well as a four-track CD Maxi-
single???  Is this just another way for die hard fans to buy the same
songs a multiple of times?

Subject: Portland HNIA Review


HNIA, Portland, OR

First of all, let me just say that whoever decided to book HNIA at the
*tiny* Umbra Penumbra coffee house should be shot!  The place can only
hold about 40 people tops, and of that group maybe 20 might be able to
see the "stage" (a small 10' x 10' room-like space).  The single bathroom
faces the small area in front of the "stage" and makes for an steady
stream of people through an area that is already over-packed.  There's
also no separate stage entrance, so the band members were forced to crush
through the crowd and climb over furniture.

I had bought tickets early enough to get in, but all my friends were
turned away at the door.  Grrr...  Miss Murgatroid was the opening act
with her solo accordion music.  It was somewhat entertaining, but the
stress of being packed in like sardines made it difficult to bear her
slow, droning pieces.  The audience was showing a great deal of agitation
and I think she played too long considering the circumstances.  She
finally made a joke about the "sell-out" crowd and allowed us to get on
with it.

Let me say that HNIA is perhaps the strangest group of musicians I have
ever seen.  It certainly did appear that a roving band of mental patients
had wandered into the venue and revealed their twisted inner visions to
the audience.  Warren being the manic musical savant leading the pack.

Music comes through Warren DeFever's fingers like he's channeling it from
"the other side."  I have never seen anything quite like it.  I can only
compare it to a cultish religious revival where the preacher starts
drinking strychnine and handling snakes.  This world is definitely not
his home, that's for sure!

The HNIA band appears to be completely disconnected from the "normal"
world.  Like "insane" people, they almost seem to invented their own
little world with their own symbols, languages, rituals, etc.  Perhaps
the disorientation of touring is beginning to have its effects.

Warren is an exceptionally talented musician.  Perhaps it is this
flirting with madness that keeps his music so disorientingly enjoyable.
I just hope he doesn't go "Syd Barett" on us.  Keeping the signal while
heaping on layers of noise is a difficult balancing act.  It's too easy
to become lost in the undifferentiated static.

Well, at least the Pet Shop Boys had the decency to clearly differentiate
between their two singles for "Before".
One has three tracks plus CD-ROM video, and the other has I think 8 mixes.  As
for everyone else, I don't know what their excuses are.

Subject: Emma's smiling frenzy!


I attended the Shaving the Pavement show in San Francisco last March.  I was
right up against the stage, to the left side, where the barrier ended.  I
definately was closer to Emma (she was right in front of me) than anyone
else there.  A very large bouncer (whom I bribed with one of the Shaving the
Pavement cassettes) made sure ot it.  Anyway,

Emma was playing along and I was dancing and having a great time.  She
looked down at me several times and could see that I was mouthing the words
to the songs and really enjoying myself.  Each time she looked down she
smiled at me.  It was direct eye contact and I am sure that she was looking
at me.  In fact, I told my friend Michelle that I was going to get her to
smile.  She did many times during the show.  She even started laughing once
and shaking her head like she thought I was nuts.

I guess I should consider myself lucky considering the recent postings.

Ok, this is the disc I have, Sunday 640CD, which is from 1993.  The songs
I really like are by Slumber, and the sleeve mentions a K. McGee.  Does
anyone know anything about them, or if they have any other recordings?
