  These are a new one for me, have seen no mention in the English music
press. Who are they and where have they come from? All I know is that they
seemed to have got a better reception on here than the Paladins.

  According to www.evo.org the album is out early next year. They also
mention the Jive Bombers - who are these? Also down for a release is the
Pixies Debaser EP and a Pixies rarities LP. Anyone now anything about
these?

OK.  As you all will soon find out gusgus is one of the most interesting
things to be signed to 4AD.  A collective of 9 people from Reykjavik,
Iceland.  Each person in the band has a speciality all are involved with
everything.  Photographers, musicians, actors, poets, designers, etc.  The
collective has already released a few films in their own country.
At a later date I will post up their bio and all the members, but you have to
wait for now.  the first single "Polyeasterday" will be released in the UK on
Oct. 7th.  The full-length will be released in late March.

Book you flight to Iceland, because that is it.

They do funk, techno and rock better than most do too.

Gun is a bomb. My favourite track on their debut album. Lots of dirty funk
guitar and techno rhythms.

>Anyone know when the full length of Gus Gus is due?  Is it February '97?

No, just 'sometime early next year' (which if 4AD's record is anything to go by
could mean any time between now and 1999). I still don't know whether it is a
straight reissue of their first, Iceland-only album or not. If so, I will be a
bit disappointed, but nobody else should be, because it's brilliant.

PS - to the guy who'd not read anything about them in the press - they had
single of the month in Muzik, despite the single reviewed being only released on
promo. (Gus1 - Chocolate)

You know both those songs are not DCD written, they're both covers.
The wind... is a poem by an Irish exiled poet I believe.
(Correct me if I'm wrong)

And I lay stretched.. was done first by Sinead O'Connor it's also an
Irish poet (maybe the same?)

Subject: Musicians seeking Recording Artist


Hello fellow artists,
I need some feedback or advice for new bands and musicians trying to break
into the recording business, I help run a web page that networks with
musicians and producers and many of them have emailed me and asked, "how do
we contact talent, managers or recording studio's as well as what does it
usually take in funds to get started?" We have a lot of talent that come to
our site and I would like to give a simple answer, but I know it depends on
where you are in the market, and who you might know, but what if you are
bran spanking new, and talented as hell and you have a sound thet you yearn
to share with others. Or.... what if you produce music? What is the best
way of finding new talent?
I guess what I am trying to find out is what is a good starting base or
procedure that has been know to work?
Any feedback regarding this question would be greatly appreciated, I my
self an artist, am curious, as well as my web surfers. I hope to provide an
article feature on my web page to answer some of these questions. Inquiring
musical artists want to know...
I know some of the answers to my questions, but I am sure there are others. :D!
Thank you so much in advance for your response!

I agree that I Am Stretched on Your Grave is depressing, but I think
Sinead's version is way superior and more depressing than Brendan
warbling.  Sounds like he's singing to his dead hamster, for all the
emotion he gives the song.

How about Eden's version? It's really similar to
Brendan's, but more droning, and the vocals are
pretty mediocre. Oohh, now I'd better expect another

Subject: Re: David Sylvian and 4AD


Sorry if I'm backtracking on anything here but Sylvian Digest 389 is the
first one I've read for a while because I was on holiday.


I do remember one of the British music rags writing an article on the fact
that Sylvian had been asked if he wanted to join 4AD - in fact I brought
this point up on this list just over a year ago and got shot down in flames
by a lot of subscribers...

I can't remember when the article was published, and whether it was MM or
NME - I think it would be the latter since I only read NME until I worked
out that 4AD seem to like MM a lot better - advertising more, giving more
interviews etc. The only thing I remember about it was that it was towards
the back of the paper - haven't a clue why I remember that.

I can't fathom who first wrote this quote:

>>> And 4AD boss Ivy, has a great dream that DS and SW will contribute on
>>> further This Mortal Coil albums (he was trying desperately to get
>>> those two together on "Blood")

but this can't be true. Ivo has categorically stated on numerous occassions
(just about every interview in the past 6 years) that there will be no more
TMC albums whatsoever - what a complete bummer! TMC is the best "group"
ever (IMHO of course - *everyone* has to check out Filigree and Shadow).
Sylvian on one of these three masterpieces (four if you include the EP)
would have been like putting two cherries on the cake - how do you make a
perfect album better? Well, yes, putting David on it would have been my
solution too.

Ahhhhh! :

>>In a NME (I think - maybe MM) article, a Vaughan Simons, London asked:
>>"Ages ago, when you did the 4AD discgraphy, you said that Ivo has >>hardly
>>put an aestethic foot wrong. Being a total 4AD freak,

Now I remember, this is the piece I recall - it was in a letter q&a format,
that's why it was towards the back near the letters. I recall relating to
the 4AD-freak bit, and hence looking up DS in my freind's collection. I
suppose it can't be too difficult to work out roughly when the article was
published. It must have been earlier in the year than when Blood came out
(1991), and just after the NME 4AD discography.

As to whether everyone in TMC is/was on 4AD:

>Tim Freeman of Frazier Chorus at Virgin

Frazier Chorus's first ever release was on 4AD but then they eloped, as did
The The, so technically he is "attached" to 4AD.

The other main contributor not on the record label was Gordon Sharp of
cindytalk (label is Midnight Music I think). There were lots of other names
who didn't seem to belong to bands but contributed to all (or at least the
last two) albums - the Rutkowski sisters (anyone any more info?), Gini
Ball, Jean (who ever he was), and, if we are allowed favourites - mine,
Martin McCarrick the cellist who went on to work with Siouxsie and the
Banshees until their sad demise earlier this year. I'd love to see him team
up with David and/or Michael Brook, who, oddly, didn't turn up on any TMC
albums.



There's my thrupence worth. Now help me with any vague conections to
McCarrick and the Rutkowskis - I know one of the latter sang live here in
Glasgow in 1990/91 doing operatic stuff I think...

on the depressing music front:

Huh?! _Laughing Stock_ is about as new/recent as Talk Talk gets. When I hear
the words "old Talk Talk", I think of stuff like "It's My Life"!

i may be forced to agree with the idea that sinead's version is better.
perhaps it was a matter of her getting to it first. maybe it is just that
that is the version that i am used to.
        as far as irish songs being sung by dcd, they should try "anachie
gordon"-by Mary black(also done as an encore at some of the
"idonotwantwhatihaventgot" tour).
                        or
        the most beautiful irish song, "the fields of
athenry(ah-then-rye)". they could do justice to this even if it is a
modernish protest song.

    OK, I'm getting a little off topic here, but I really love this song.
The version I heard was by Lorena McKennitt on "Parallel Dreams". I too
Would love to here DCD do a cover of this song.

To be precise, it's in Pere Lachaise, the wondrous cemetary.  I stumbled
upon it looking for Jim Morrison.
