Hey, it's no problem. It's just a bit uncommon to be calling your own message a
"load of boring tripe from an ignorant sod" so i thought it was directed at me.
It's just a simple miscommunication.

Um, why don't you just say what's on your mind (when it's pertinent) without
insulting anyone (yourself included)? Because, actually, you had a good point.
I don't think we ought to NOT talk about bands which have a legitimate aesthetic
connection to 4AD. I just think that since 4AD virtually created the "ethereal"
genre it might be nice to have a little more discussion of artists who continue
in that tradition. We've always had a diversity on this list and i hope it
continues that way ...
-cz ... do we really need to assign a gender to everyone?

>>Talentless hack bastards!
>you mean you can actually tell apart the tracks on Loveless ?!
Well......yeah I can. Let me guess, you hate it. If one doesn't like a
genre of music it all sounds the same to that person. It's like that
with me at least, you too?

I don't know the title too, even if I listen to this album relatively often,
anyway it is played in a scene where Al Pacino walk through a room with some
scattered dead bodies, and is the only 4AD piece, if I'm not wrong.

>> I've missed the boat about Virginia. What does she sound like? Not being
ailable in the US is often a good sign. Also, anyone heard that Millinium
whats-the-rest-of-it thingie from Tricky?
Can't tell you anything about Virginia. However the new album by Tricky
is called Pre-Millenium Tension and is out on Nov.11th here in the UK.
The first single off it is released today and is called Christiansands.
Not heard either as yet, but will probably buy the album.
It has been slated so far in the press from the reviews that I have
seen. They all seem to be expecting another Maxinquaye and he hasn't
produced it. It is said to be more following in the footsteps of his
Nearly God project, but possibly not so dark. But I would have thought
that the title would reflect how the music would sound.

Do you know if any of this will get a release other than on a possible
movie sountrack album? Interesting that Kelley says she was kicked out
of a band. I just thought that the Breeders were put on the back burner
while she got her shit together.

I don't think it's fair to say that Ian Curtis was 'horribly out of tune'.
He had a very distinctive voice, albeit one with a limited range, and while
it's true that he never sang anything in unison with the guitar and bass,
that doesn't constitute being out of tune.
Alternative music is largely out of tune? I guess I don't listen to much
alternative then. Is dissonance/atonality alternative or are those concepts
too academic for today's post-grunge kiddies?

In all the Slowdive discographies people of this list have posted, only
creation releases have been mentioned. What about other labels e.g. Sunday?

I seem to remember hearing that one of the first movies to use popular
music in its soundtrack was "The Graduate" (1967), with all those Simon
and Garfunkel tunes. I'm not sure if this is true either, though.

If you have web access, go to http://www.lysator.liu.se/~chief/avalyn.html
and you'll find very well done discographies for slowdive and mojave.

For those of you who have been upset in trying to track down a copy of
Spiritualized's "Lazer Guided Melodies", it was reissued this week.
BTW, it kicks ass.
