Greetings...

                I'm curious as to what the name "Red House Painters" is in refer
nce
to, does anyone have any idea?  I like them quite a lot, and I was
always puzzled as to what exactly the name meant, so if anyone can
shed any light on this for me I would be most appreciative.

Yours in Truth-

     In the UK this name is usually used in a derogatory manner to express
     the fact that a female is on her period e.g. "couldn't have sex - the
     red house painters were in!!"

     Sorry....I don't particularly enjoy writing things like this, but you

As Ben Elton once said, it's incredible that something that happens once a month
to
50% of the population of the world is still such a taboo subject refered to by s

many such euphemisms; he went on to say that if men menstruated, they'd boast
about it.  All to do with the (sadly still present) inequality of the sexes...

Oh well..

       The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes,

       The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes

         Licked its tongue into the corners of the evening,

           Lingered upon the pools that stand in drains,

       Let fall upon its back the soot that falls from chimneys,

           Slipped by the terrace, made a sudden leap,
                                                                20
           And seeing that it was a soft October night,

           Curled once about the house, and fell asleep.

information?  Thanks.

and speaking of Lynn Canfield and friends, anyone heard anything more

I was wrong about rasputina at bottom of the hill last nite, but they did
play a wonderful gig at the paradise lounge. They were headlining a free
show, but they will be opening for Bob mould come october. overall, i was
quite impressed by their sound and presence. in between songs, the vocalist
would burp out these antedotes that would crack up half of the crowd. they
sort of remind me a bit like miranda sex garden but much less rock
obviously. catch them if you get the chance...now looking for their
album...

Subject: this list is too quiet! - Lisa Germano stuff - Kelley Deal??


***WAKE UP!!!***

You can't say that the 4AD isn't putting out interesting stuff!

Lisa Germano's latest - _excerpts from a love circus_ - just given it a
first listen and I think it is wonderful - lots of really interesting
sounds all meshed-up into some rather simple songs.... oh, i suppose that
it's a little too 'heart upon the sleeve' for some of the aesthetes on this
list, but for those who don't mind the words 'I' or 'you' in a song, you
are in for an aural treat!

How is Lisa in concert? worth the trek out to catch her on this tour?
I'm afraid that some of these songs would be lost with your typical
synth-machine trying to recreate the cool sounds from the studio...

So what is the Deal with Kelley? did Ivo pass on _gone to the sugar altar_?
If so, why? It is a respectable work and i can't imagine 4AD would have
lost money on it.

I believe it refers to a job from the 30's or 40's.  If you look closely
in "The Hudsucker Proxy", when Tim Robbins is looking at the job board as
it is flashing jopbs by, one of them reads red house painter.....

I am unsure what the job is, but I don't think it was a pleasant job,
because it was alongside janitor, garbageman, etc

You can view it with the Mac version of Netscape 3.0, or with 2.0 if you
download the QuickTime plug-in separately. I don't think the plug-in is
available for other platforms yet.

It's a panorama from onstage at a concert, with all the lights and the
band and everything. It being QTVR, you can drag the mouse over it to
turn around in all directions. There's a big banner with the CT logo over
where most of the view of the audience would be; this may be to hide the
fact that the hall is empty since they couldn't have done it during a
concert (it takes a while to shoot the 30-something individual photos
that get combined to produce the panorama, and nothing can move during
the process, so it's not something you can do in the middle of a show!)

You can get more info about the technology, and download the plug-in, at

I saw Lisa Germano opening for Pale Saints and it inspired me to go out
and buy the disc. So yeah she's pretty good live. She's proficient enough
at switching between instruments to get a really broad pallette of
sounds... there isnt any backing loops of effects or any thing, but she
did have a couple of supporting musicians that helped out adding both
basic elements as well as a little strangeness here and there.
