YES! I only wish it was a channel I could get on cable. Having access

I don't recall what song that was; I stopped keeping track of Verve after
their first album. IMHO, if you want the best, most shoegazy Verve stuff
you should pick up their earlier material, much of which is collected on
"The Verve EP". Several really brilliant tracks, even if they omitted the
superior long version of "She's a Superstar". My ears detect a strong
Pink Floyd influence (circa "Meddle") which is just fine with me. Their
later stuff, starting with "A Storm In Heaven" started to sound in many
ways too U2-like, particularly the vocals.

I have been trying to find out which cd its on, but I didn't catch
the name of it.
Tindersticks have released a new album which is actually the soundtrack =
for the film by
Claire Denis - Nenette et Boni.
it was released on their own label - This Way Up ( as all their albums ) =
and is distributed=20
by Island records.
The cover shows a rabbit standing between a woman's legs, probably a =
scene from the movie, which I haven't yet seen.
The album is rather very short compared to other tindersticks releases, =
and is actually made of improvisations on their own stuff, different =
mixes, and some other instrumental stuff.
Brilliant as they have always been, this album keeps up with their =
ususal melancholic type of music, but still chillingly beautiful.

I agree wholehardtly--I am excited about their new album in March with
producer John Cale (VU). We are starting a Tarnation homepage that will be
up soon. Look for it.

"New" "album" out now on Rephlex - actually it was recorded (according
to someone on usenet) at the same time as "Succour", and it is only 35
minutes long with 6 tracks, so it is not new and barely an album. The
time of recording seems about right - "the Seefeel release on Rephlex"
hasn't been anticipated for quite as long as the new MBV album, but
6 tracks - one is a version of "Utreat", and the other five are like
the quieter moments of "Succour". "Ashdecon", on first listen, is the
only track showing signs of genius, but the others are pretty good and
it took me a while to get into "Succour". Shame about the price and
Oh, and I found a Jessamine/Transparent Thing split single (Jessamine
track is a live-to-cassette recording, bass-heavy but quite good), and
Seely have a 7" out, "Meteor Storm" with a B-side which wasn't on the
promo CD I was sent recently by those lovely people at Too Pure USA.
"Wind and Would", I think it's called, and it is not all that good,
singing sounds a bit out of tune to me. PURE 63, I think, which means
that I am now going to get paranoid about missing a Mouse on Mars
release or something.

i saw a book "oceans of sound," dealing with ambient and some this-listy
music. and the book mentioned the cd, oceans of sound, that follows
the book's writings. seemed to be very thorough, and i'll pick it up when
i get the opportunity. anybody read it?

No, I was still living out in the prairies of Alberta when that tour
happened. I missed YEARS of gigging and I'm only just starting to catch
up on some much needed concerts. It's so nice to live in a city where
bands coming to town is a regular thing not some divine event...
although having His Name Is Alive AND Red House Painters on the same
bill is pretty darn close to divine!

just some trivial rambling about mazzy in concert...
The massey hall show in toronto was somewhat similar(to the previous
message's). mazzy star opened for the cocteau twins on the heaven or las
vegas tour. they were excellent, until the ground hum coming from roback's
guitar was too much for he and hope to handle. the roadies attempted to
fix it while they played, but after five minutes, hope got really pissed
and left the stage(after she said 'you guys are shit'). the band continued
to play for about two more minutes as the roadies still tried to fix the
amp buzz, then roback(is it david? i can't remember) slammed his guitar
into his amps and stormed off also. it was really disappointing because
the few songs they managed to get through were excellent. i hope to see
them again sometime, with a longer set...
also, the cocteau twins were simply fantastic! they played everything i
wanted to hear plus some...
jeff keibel, did you get to catch this show? it was one of my favorite
journeys to toronto(lot's of snow and beautiful music)
