Le vierge, le vivace et le bel aujourd'hui
Va-t-il nous déchirer avec un coup d'aile ivre
Ce lac dur oublié que hante sous le givre
Le transparent glacier des vols qui n'ont pas fui!

Un cygne d'autrefois se souvient que c'est lui
Magnifique mais qui sans espoir se délivre
Pour n'avoir pas chanté la région où vivre
Quand du stérile hiver a resplendi l'ennui.

Tout son col secouera cette blanche agonie
Par l'espace infligée à l'oiseau qui le nie,
Mais non l'horreur du sol où le plumage est pris.

Fantôme qu'à ce lieu son pur éclat assigne,
Il s'immobilise au songe froid de mépris
Que vêt parmi l'exil inutile le Cygne.

Subject: Stereolab/Fuxa split single

          droneon 

 The usual apologies for cross-posting to several lists.

 Stereolab: You Used to Call Me Sadness
 Fuxa: Skyhigh

 Lissy's, 7" LISS15, "the first in an occasional series"

 Not worth selling your grandmother for.  The Fuxa track (which I
 listened to first under the impression that it was Stereolab, due to
 a label mix-up) is a pleasant but uninspired guitar strum with a
 background drone, ending with a short piece reminiscent of the
 experimental bits of "Space Age Batchelor Pad".  "3 Field Rotation"
 is a fine album, but this is mediocre.  The Stereolab track is a bit
 of a throwback - "Mars Audiac Quintet" style pop, with a "dum de dum
 de dum de dum" chorus, Laetitia singing some vaguely political
 lyrics, you know the score.  Stereolab fans should probably wait
 until they get round to putting "Switched On 3" together.

Moose and elk are the respective North American and European names for the
same thing. Reindeer is something else entirely.

A Moose is a very different thing than an elk. An elk is the equivalent

plenty of connections with 4ad... ummm, i have remedios varo artwork on my

was very popular in mexico and so is 4ad. dcd played two shows in mexico
city, wrn defever was interviewed on national television and so was
remedios. also remedios is a woman and so are lisa germano, kim deal,
kristen hersh, lisa gerrard,etc. and most importantly her artwork is very
4ad. the topics she chooses to paint are very dark, and very mystical, and
very good...like 4ad... she is also european and so is ivo. she has brown
hair and so does trey many. there are so many links i don't have enough
time or energy to write them all. if remedios were alive, ivo would pay
her to do album covers... maybe...

Dear List,

Okay, so who's the poor schlep responsible for updating the 4AD Web Site??
It hasn't been touched, apparently, since July 24 (my birthday...), although
they've released about 4 or 5 or more new recordings since then.  The band
information is woefully outdated, with NO new information for Lisa Germano,
Heidi Berry, Throwing Muses, His Name Is Alive, or these newcomers The
Paladins and Gus Gus.

Anyone?

No, and that's shame. On the other hand, that album is already full of
brilliant tracks.


Anita Lane's version of TBAMFW can be found on the Barry Adamson soundtrack
for 'Delusion', out on Mute/Ionic. There's also a single version on Mute

2. These Boots Are Made For Walking - Bonnie Floats On Airwair Mix

Emigre magazine feat. 4ad issued late 1980's I believe (circa

A must for any 4ad nutter. Excellent condition.

All reasonable bids considered (reasonable being no less that
$50 in both cases).  Contact me at the below address (not the

Subject: New signing?


        According to the latest issue of City Life, the Manchester listings
magazine, 4AD have signed local band (from Cheshire) the Thrush Puppies. If so,
a few hearts will sink amongst the CT/DCD fanbase here. The Thrush Puppies are a
female quartet of angry guitarniks who sound a little like House Tornado-era
Muses meet Babes in Toyland round the Deal sisters' house. What I've heard of
them (which ain't much) isn't bad at all.
        On another topic entirely, Polly Harvey's new LP with John Parish 'Dance
Hall At Louse Point' is now out. It's pretty good, quite raw and pretty
dicordant/disconcerting in places. I love the version of 'Is That All There Is'.
Very deadpan, very droll.

From: Jens Alfke (jens@APPLE.COM)
Subject: A new mailing list


With the help of Jack Huynh, I've finally done what I've long been
threatening to do: I've started up a new mailing list to spin off much of
the interesting (to me) non-4AD discussion from the 4AD list. Rather than
having the topic just be "thislisty stuff that isn't on 4AD", I've tried
to focus things a bit more. (There's an excerpt from the Intro web page
below.)

I know some people here have been opposed to the idea of doing this; but
I really think it's time. The musical split between the current 4AD
roster and the kind of music pure-impure wants to discuss is by now
pretty complete -- the only crossover bands I can think of would be Gus
Gus and possibly HNIA. It's time to give 4AD-L back to the people who
still like 4AD and discuss the ongoing electroswirlynoisyjunglethereal
scene elsewhere.

I've tried hard to design a list that will not stagnate the way
single-band lists do; we have a very wide variety of stuff to discuss,
much of which is way out on the bleeding edge and not very well served by
the mainstream media (hell, they can't even come up with a decent name
for it. "Post-rock" my ass.) The focus will be on the music itself, not
on peripheral issues like movies, record stores or clubs.

Here's an excerpt from the list manifesto. You can read all this and
more, with better formatting, along with a poster I've spent too long
slaving over, at:
    http://www.mooseyard.com/Jens/pure-impure/
___________________________________________________________________________
__
pure-impure is a mailing list for discussing music that mixes up elements
of
techno, ambient, shoegazer (aka dreampop), noise, dub, drone, and
what-have-you. Some of this music has been called "trip-hop". Some has
been
called "post-rock". No one's come up with a good label yet, but there's a
lot of
interesting music being made that seems to fit into a coherent whole.

The name of this mailing list comes from an EP by Seefeel, whose early
recordings
are a perfect example of this style -- amorphous, looped sound; elastic
basslines;
guitar morphed into a swirl of sound; vocals lost in the mix. However,
this is not
exclusively a Seefeel mailing list.

This list is a spin-off of the long-lived 4AD-L, which has been a good
place for
discussing these types of music. However, with the continued evolution of
the
4AD label (The Paladins?!?) there's a growing distance between the bands
currently
on 4AD and a lot of the non-4AD music being discussed there. It seemed to
make
sense to split the ambient/noise/etc. discussions into their own list;
and here we
are!

In setting up this mailing list I'm trying to avoid the bad examples of
one-band
lists, which quickly run out of things to talk about. On the other hand,
I have to
hope that there is enough of an aesthetic focus that we can agree what
music is
relevant without digressing into infinity or getting into flame wars.
It'll help to
have a core set of bands we can assume axiomatically are relevant. Here
are some
examples, up for debate or addition:

       Bark Psychosis
       Bowery Electric
       Flying Saucer Attack (and spin-offs such as Movietone and 3rd Eye
       Foundation)
       Labradford
       Laika (and old Moonshake)
       My Bloody Valentine
       Portishead (or are they off the pop end of the spectrum?)
       Scala
       Seefeel
       Slowdive (particulary Pygmalion and the 5EP)
       Spectrum
       Stereolab (who in many ways don't fit but whom I'm convinced belong
       here)
       Talk Talk (their later albums such as Spirit of Eden and Laughing
Stock)
       Tortoise
       Tricky (and Massive Attack?)
       Underworld
       Windy & Carl

The list has been running in beta test for about 1 1/2 weeks now with
about 15 subscribers, and there's been some good discussion of Stereolab,
DJs Shadow and Spooky [whom I always get mixed up], the Lilys, Flying
Saucer Attack, etc. If you like this kind of music, we need your

not to be a dick or anything (i've met ted before - he's a nice guy) but
the box set is still available as far as i know. i have seen it at a couple
of the BEST BUY chain stores here in Northern VA for $53.99...which sucks

years back!

that's funny. fuxa said it was the best song they've done. they were
saving it for something like this (which is understandable).

This is not a rarity -- it's still in print as far as I know. (Somebody
back me up here.) Street price is usually ~$60 new, so $50 used is pretty
steep.

This _is_ rare and is very, very nice indeed. Includes a few layouts
Vaughan designed especially for that issue. I have one too but I think
I'll hold onto it.

Actually any issue of Emigre is nice stuff for those into [avant-garde]
design and typography. They also design weird fonts that you've certainly
seen if you read Wired or Raygun or buy any techno/ambient CDs. :)

Now that Dewdrops has completed its move 3.8 miles

sure one more time that everyone has our new address,
which is shown below. Also since forwarding mail does

Thanks for your continued support,

Saw the Blue Nile live in '91 or '92 in London in an also-sold-out-show.
the crowd cheered endlessly.

Towards the end I tried to take a quick zoomed photo. As I clicked the shutter,
a security guy grabbed my shoulder, and the result was a magnificently blurred
Blue Nile photograph that could easily make their next album cover.
Didn't quite like the musical they approached on their 3rd album, but still, the

are one of the remarkable bands ever...

i think biz is targeting sp specifically and not really caroline...afaik,
sp signed to caroline/virgin knowing that their next cd would be released
on capitol/virgin...the release of 'gish' on caroline was merely to attract
interest to them as an 'indie' band on an 'indie' label.

Mi Amigo, Rich

Now that it's been sort of "established" that you're "qualified" to answer
4AD-related questions, here are a couple that beg to be answered:

Is the legendary Going Home album ever going to see the light of day
(through 4AD)?

Verify the signing of Thrush Puppies to 4AD?

I was afraid to ask Jeff...
