the soundtrack to "the hunger" does not have bauhaus on it boo hoo... at
least the copy i saw.

the soundtrack was greaT... however, keep you're $ and rent another movie...
the only thing the flick had going for it was that sometimes you heard... in
the background...something worthwhile, which made suffering through the two
hours a bit more bearable.

I had the greatest conversation with none other than Mark K. yesterday (I
had to interview him for NYU's paper) and he was so cool. he said that
the tour they're doing now consists of 40-minute sets, since RHP is only
opening for John Cale, and not doing a full headlining tour. he *also*
said that as for the loud sets some people heard throughout their most
recent tour last month, he's been varying sets from city to city-
sometimes playing it loud and other times having more calm, pretty sets.
so for people who weren't into the guitar solos, you may get to see
something different this time around.
as for the new album- someone wanted a review- it's very different
sounding from the older RHP material in its production; not as wistful and
dreamy-sounding- more bare, more acousticky. and then there are some
really loud songs with some crazy solo action. in general, it's still
mark and still passionate, but not as wistful/dreamy- or at least fewer
of the songs on this new one are wistful/dreamy.
he's so nice! he's a happy guy.

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)
I only read the weekly music papers and flick through the monthlies
in the local newsagents as I can't afford all the music papers I would
like. Obviously I must have missed this review. Not really expecting to
find 4AD artistes in Muzik, mind. Normally only give it a cursory glance
for other stuff.

You know, I never actually claimed that they wrote the songs. Only that
they did them. As in they are on some albums put out by Dead Can Dance. I
always look to see what is written by who on all the albums that I really
like. You see, that's why I think that Mike Pinder is the best of the
Moody Blues and that George Harrison consistently wrote the best songs in
the Beatles. I really don't see how anybody could like Lisa Gerrard more
than Brendan Perry. But Brendan Perry is a master of lyricism beaten only
by the ever-so-great Leonard Cohen. Yea, I place the old Perry over Bob
Dylan any day while saying the Bob Dylan is still great. But the reason
why Brendan Perry beats Lisa Gerrard in my book is that after a while it
just seems like all of her songs might as well be the same. I was so
pissed when Spiritchaser came out. It's good musically but I really need a
few more lyrics than that. I must say that Song of the Dispossessed almost
made up for the lack of Brendan Perry lyrics but didn't quite. It's the
same thing with Aion and Black Sun. I just wish that they'd halve the
albums from now on. Toward the Within was completely amazing to me.
Wehell, I'll suppose that I'll be heading on out.

Fancy an hour of sleepy, driftin & driftin, beautiful ambient fake
formlessness ?. Yeah you guessed it I'm trying to sell my demo tape.
Really I just want people to hear it so that I can get someones opinion
because I don't know anyone else who is into anything decent. Anyway its
totally excellent and its only going to cost two quid or maybe if you
have any cool demo's to swap then we could do that instead. If you are
interested in this not to be missed bargain then e mail me and we can
work something out.
By the way, what exactly does the phrase 'pencil guitar' mean?

I posted yesterday that I didn't know what was on the second gus gus promo
twelve. Now I've got it, I know.
Polydistortion is absolutely incredible. it's a remix of Polyesterday, but bears
little relation to that track. It's a headtrip slow techno groove that goes on
for about a quarter of an hour - and still seems too short. It's gonna be caned
in this house, and I suspect in every chill-out room across the length and
breadth of this country. Since I still don't have the actual official commercial
release, I don't know whether it's included. If not, somebody needs shooting.
The other two tracks are Polyesterday itself, different to the LP version
(better), and presumably the single, and a very minmal mix of Cold Breath '79. I
admit to going overboard in my enthusiasm sometimes, but everything new I hear
of Gus Gus is just so damned perfect, I want more and more. Within a year they
are going to be the biggest selling 4AD band by an enormous margin, they'll be
feted in the dance press in the same way that Underworld are now, and Ivo will
have stacks of money pouring in so he can sign more dodgy bands like the
Paladins without caring that they'll sell zilch. Oh well, every silver lining
has it's cloud.
