the last time i tried to order a mute reissue of a can album, i was told
that they had already gone out of print--although theyre listed in the
catalogs of most american distributors. i keep hoping that this is not
true--i'm desperate to find tago mago on cd--but the prospects look grim
for finding can domestically in the US.
if anyone has info to the contrary, i'd be happy to hear it!
btw, if you like early can, i definately recommend future days, my
favorite can album. the song future days is perfect--a combination of
latin rythms, a catchy and cute melody, and odd experimentation. when
can is at its best, the music is so catchy and moving that it takes a
while to realize that something very strange and "wrong" is going on

What can anyone tell me about the Mrs. Dolphin disc? Is this another
Japanese single/ep compilation in the spirit of Belly's Baby Silvertooth
and that new Lush disc? I have the disc (Mrs. Dolphin) but didn't know
how it fit into the Pale Saints discography.

luis, that's very cool, I will love to have some books, although I have
read some of them. It's amazing that your teacher was a friend of Frida
Kahlo, I envied her. What is the name of your teacher? Thank you.

larry, beg your pardon, I thought that in this list you discussed
anything that deal with art. I just wanted to hear opinions about
LatinAmerican art as general. But I see your point. Thank you.

You are correct. Mrs. Dolphin is a Japanese compilation, which includes the
material from "Barging Into the Presence of God", "Half-Life", and I think
one or two additional tracks. The disc is apparently a genuine 4AD release,
but I think it lacks the traditional UK catalog number.

Could be one of 2 albums they had before:
- The Comforts of Madness.
- Slow Buildings (this came out after in Ribbons).

i know this isn't terribly 4-ad listy, but i've been wondering recently

Okay, now that Tom W. has added his insightful comment "damn right" I
guess I do want to reply to Bruce Mcguire's statement that:
>yes can were way ahead of their time and truly great
>and that is main difference between them and simply average groups
>like Tortoise, Stereolab. And a certain ratio
If I can work through the syntax, Bruce is making two points here:
* Truly great bands are different than simply average groups. I don't
think anyone's going to disagree with that too strongly, so we can move
* Can are better than the other bands he mentioned because they were way
ahead of their time. This I don't buy. Certainly coming out of nowhere
with a new sound is a good thing, and I'm not going to dis Can (although
I've never liked anything by them that I've heard), but there is also
value in combining existing sounds and doing new things with them, as
well as in simply writing great songs. Both of which I will argue loudly
that Stereolab do. No one prior to them, to my knowlege, combined the old
Krautrock sound of Neu/Faust/etc (and to a lesser extent maybe Can) with
the VU, some of the sound of early Minimalism, and space age pop like
Esquivel. All of which you can see in Stereolab from their very first
release. And I don't care what year it was released in, "Super-Electric"
is a fabulous pop song.
I'm not going to defend Tortoise, because I don't personally find them as
interesting, or ACR, because I've never heard anything by them.

I just grabbed a promo of the 4CD box set of Galaxie500 re-releases from
our editor's desk. It is a one CD sample titled "selected galaxie 500".
It says on the inset, 4CD Boxset release date : Sept. 24, 1996
includes the albums:
- On Fire
- This is Our Music
- Uncollected Galaxie 500
So for all you G500 freaks like me, woohoo! 4 more days till this comes
out. I bet it's gonna be expensive, but since I don't have any of their
stuff and it's all out-o-print, what the heck huh?

This is a list for 4AD records and its related *** MUSIC*** styles.
Of course once in awhile art does get touched on but mostly
its in broad relation to 4AD (ie Vaughan Oliver, v23 collective,
Quay Bros, etc). While I will say that Rachel's discussion warrants
talk about Egon Schiele (and they even have a song called
Frida Khalo) the majority of the list would see Rachel's as a
musical group in keeping with 4AD style first and visual art after.
