 Here we go:

 "Too Young to Die - the Singles" - all the singles from "Only
 Love..." to "He's on the Phone" in order and absolutely bloody
 fantastic.  "He's on the Phone" is a different mix to the two
 released on the singles, and I think "Kiss & Make Up" is a different
 version to the one on "You Need a Mess of Help...", but basically if
 you have the various albums and singles there is not much new here.
 Initial copies came in a double cardboard sleeve with:

 "Too Young to Die - the Mixes" - There's only one mix here
 which wasn't on CD before, of "Speedwell".  9 mixes.

 "Casino Classics" - released this week.  Two CD set, the first one
 being the same as TYTD-TM, the second one is all new (apart from the
 15-minute Underworld "Cool Kids of Death"), and has four new songs on
 it (remixed, of course).

 Which are "essential" is up to you - CC is the only one with a large
 amount of new stuff on it, TYTD is probably only available in the
 single CD version now.  There's a very comprehensive StEt discography
 (including "Casino Classics" and all the side projects) at

Alison's Halo are in the studio as usual.  it seems like they're always in
the studio, but unfortunately don't have much to show  for as far as
releases go.  hopefully that will change this year and in 97.  i've heard
of plans for 7" releases with a slew of noteworthy indiepop labels.  i'm
also aware that they are looking for a home for their debut LP (which has
probably turned into a Quad-LP by the time you read this).  They will be
playing a show with Half String (who've had their heads in the sand since
the "All Fish Go To Heaven" festival last fall) at The Hollywood Alley in
Mesa, AZ on Sunday October 20th.  TTFN

i was actually extremly disappointed with cale, and i was actually looking
forward to seeing him perform.  the first song was pretty nice, but after
that it quickly turned into really bad adult contemporary.  i actually
left about four songs into the set.  major disappointment -- i expected
much more from him.  however, red house painters was incredible and made
the show well worth the $12 i paid to get in.

The best is BY FAR the 4AD release. When these three
songs were re-recorded for the album, they lost
much of the punch and immediacy that made them so
great. They became more produced, and a lot more bland.
Overall though, Sue is an OK album if you like that kind
of glossy, laid-back popmusic.

I can understand that for a Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey or Pat Benatar
fan this would come as a humiliating blow, but I think the rest of us
have level enough heads to be able to discern that, while Alanis can't
compare with Liz Fraser or Jenny Toomey or even Kathleen Hanna, she's a
damn sight better than the previous record holders. Let's just hope that
the semi-mythical upcoming Sundays album sells 14 million copies, okay?

        Why is everyone putting down Alanis? Come on guys, you know she

beginnings on Nickelodeon's "You Can't Do That on Television!" Alanis is my
idol, man! I just can't wait until Alanis and her American counterpart,
Tiffany, do a joint project. It'll be the music event of the season.
        Here's a burning question that's been smoldering in my mind: What
accent does she sing in? It's definitely not Canadian. It sure does bug the
piss out of me.

I was under the impression that at least some of the songs on the
first Belly album had been co-authored with Fred Abong. This explains the
more complex musesish basslines.

Well acctually they are from Providence.  Since the release of the wonderful
"Breadmaker" one of the members has left the band....it is the male singer, I'm 
ot sure
what his name is off hand.  They recently played a show in Boston.  I haven't se
n them
live since the line-up change, but when they opened for Stereolab, along with th

wonderful Curtain Society, they were really good, you could even say they were r
ally
excellent. Live shows are pretty rare, I spent the last 4 years in the Boston/Pr
vidence
area and I've only been able to see them once.  :(
