now, i'm surprised no one mentioned 'luminitza' which is absolutely
brilliant.  and since no one has really described what they sound like,
here's the deal:

the b. quartet play fabulous string-based avant-classical music.
'luminitza' (written by a. balanescu and c. connors) has a wonderful
eastern european influence.  what makes balanescu even more interesting is
his occasional use of vocals and drum programming.

for me, 'luminitza' is by far their best work.  i had the chance to see
balanescu play in kassel, germany this past summer and the first half of
the show was pieces from 'lumintiza'.  they started with "east"; that song
now gives me the shakes every time i hear it.  the played it with immense
energy (as much of their work has).  the second half of the show they
played with an ensemble and did pieces from the film soundtrack to _angels
& insects_.  this work is also available on cd, but it has a different,
somewhat watered-down sound when compared to their other work (yet, it is
still wonderful and serene).

i also recommend 'possessed'.  the kraftwerk covers are interesting and
fun.  plus there is a track featuring silly vocals from miranda sex
garden.  the encore at the show i saw was "model"; that sent the germans
into a frenzy! :)

nyman's string quartets (mentioned above) are also quite compelling and
energetic.  bryars 'last days' is an interesting piece, but it doesn't
hold my attention.  both these recordings are available on argo records.
finally, stay far, far away from the recordings balanescu did of volans
work....ugh!  not good at all!

so, since we're on the avant-classical tip, does anyone have any opinions
about stephen scott's "bowed piano" work.  i heard a bit on npr, and it
sounded pretty interesting.  i'd hate to buy it and find something overly
new-age and silly, though.

Well, I second that! I have most of that stuff on LP but haven't listened to it 
or a long time, since my recored player broke (yeah! I know , i 'm a lazy ass fo
 not fixing it).

Here are my 2 cents on the TWP records that I know of:

* The Burden of Mules (1983) Very odd, i like it least, no real singing, Mick Al
en just kinda lingers and talks (too  bad 'cause I love his voice). INteresting 
hough.

* Water EP and SweatBox (EP) (1983-84): The title tracks from here are also incl
ded in The Legendary. other tracks are even BETTER though. i like this stuff a l
t.

* The Legendary Wolfgang Press and other tall stories (1985) Excellent album my 
econd favorite. This is TWP getting funky and noisy at the same time (hence the 
alking Heads references they drew at the time). Includes that goofy version of A
etha Franklin's respect with Liz (CC) on backing vocals. Hilarious! Also include
 my favorite "mood" track: "Ecstasy". The intro to that is just fab...
All tracks on this album are ecellent. (specially Deserve and Tremble)

* Standing Up Straight (1986) Their best album in my opinion. Still along the sa
e lines as Legendary only more mature. The best song ever written by those guys 
and one of my all time faves) is I am the Crime which also features Liz and is a
moving piece of genius.

* Big Sex EP (1987) a great EP, I love The Wedding and The Great Leveller tracks
 This is kinda similar to SUS only more "musical"

* Bird Wood Cage (1988) this is where TWP kinda broke from their "old school" st
le and started venturing into pure funk/dance. There are still tracks here which
are noisy and guitar driven and then some new style ones (are also really cool, 
ust different).

* Queer (1991): Not really one of their best, probably my least favorite, comple
e departure into dancey stuff.

* Funky Little Demons (1995): Now TWP have established themselves as a dance/fun
 band and are really good at it!!!! Check it out!

If you've read this far, you are obviously either a TWP fan and know all this in
which case you've wasted your time or really bored and need a hobby :)

But anyway, does anyone know what these blokes are up to? I heard that Mark is n
 longer in the band....

I'm with you there! But that's because the digital synths use very
different techniques to generate sounds (typically frequency-modulation
vs. filtering) and the sounds those techniques produce aren't as
interesting. It's possible to build a digital synth that simulates the
kind of filtering an analog synth does, although you'd need a fast CPU to
handle all the Fourier transforms in real time. But given enough
horsepower it would sound identical to your favorite TB303 or Korg or
VCS...

astrogate reveals:
>though you may want it to be, you are not a computer.  you are a person;
>you have a spirit or soul; you feel emotion.

Since when does analog==emotion and digital==unemotion? Analog computers
are just as emotionless as the digital kind. The fact that we have no
fundamental understanding of things like consciousness or emotion doesn't
mean they cannot eventually be expressed in a mechanism we can
understand, whether digital or analog. We just don't know.

astrogate further intoned:

Groooooovy, man. Have another hit while I burst your bubble: magnetic
tape too is digital down at the molecular level. Every tiny crystal
domain in the oxide has a single magnetic orientation. Pack enough of the
crystals together in a small space and it averages out into something
that's a close enough approximation of analog for the likes of us. Okay,
you can stop coughing now...

Appalled at the lack of scientific literacy among the thislisty
population, I remain:

  Tanya was on the Mark Radcliffe show last night performing
live. Played four songs in all, though I didn't really catch
any of the titles, mainly the EP I think. Seemed alright,
though none of them were good enough to make me stand up and
take notice.

  Not really my field, but Shroedinger had a box which he liked to
put his cat into and theorize over whether it was there or not. As
you couldn't see inside the box you couldn't prove whether the cat
was there or not, unless you opened the box. Used to do all sorts
to the cat in the box like bombard it with electrons, but I never took
much interest. Got some sort of uncertainty principle named after it.

        for a fascinating and playful explaination of these and
        various other quantum riddles, i emphatically recommend the
        book "schrodinger's cat trilogy" by robert anton wilson.

        ..... but i still dont understand how schrodinger's simultaneously

I have the song on _Mrs. Dolphin_, which was only released in Japan, and
has the 4AD logo all over it.  It's a compilation of the "Barging Into
the Presence of God" and "Half-Life" EPs, including the bonus track only
available on the vinyl version of the latter, plus two additional rare
(?) tracks.  Someone recently mentioned here that the _Mrs_ CD is also
now out of print.

I'd be curious to find out if anyone knows where this song originally
came from...it's pretty lame, frankly, so figuring out why it was never
on a "proper" release isn't hard.

i thought the same thing when i listened to this ep, but then i thought,

a nice touch..."easy way down" is by far the best song on the ep...the

if you like the female (meriel) singer on 'in ribbons' then you'll proabaly
like 'slow buildings' - ian left the band and meriel took over the majority
of the singing along with their new bassist (who was the cousin of someone
on 4ad-l if my memory is correct).

with pale saints being one of my favorite 4ad bands, i find myself biased
towards the ian-era band. 'slow buildings' has some great moments though,
and i'd definitely recommend it - it's just a very far cry from early pale
saints.

I resent that. my computer is just as emotional as I am. I'm not joking

I have a recording of the Kronos Quartet playing some of Nyman's
quartets. However, even better I think is Nyman's soundtrack to the film
"Carrington" which is based on his 3rd quartet. It has a lot of moods but
keeps coming back to the really beautiful and sad refrain from the 3rd
quartet. Lovely.

And I have to plug one of the most haunting and moving string pieces I
[q.v. my review of Elysian Fields] I played by chance at a listening
station in a store and was astonished by -- I quite seriously did just
about start to cry after hearing the first thirty seconds... It's got
swooping heavenly bits, weird dissonance, and many moments of pure
silence where it fades into the distance, thinks a bit, and comes back
again in different form. It's on New Albion and I can't recommend it too
highly.

From: Michael Borum (iceblink@TIAC.NET)
Subject: Re: another pale saints question


"In Ribbons" is by far the better of the two, IMO.  It seems you've heard it
already, so I'll not describe it.

As for "Slow Buildings", the title is fairly indicative of many of the songs
on the LP.  There are a few songs that are really long, and many of them
have some slow moments in them.  Meriel was the principal songwriter on this
record, and she borrowed a lot of chords and riffs from "In Ribbons", which
helps it to still sound like Pale Saints.  Overall, "Slow Buildings" is much
rougher around the edges, less delicate, less ironic, and much less
moody-and-arty-a-la-Ian Masters.  It's a diverse record, but at the same
time not too mind-blowing. There's quite a bit of distortion in songs like
"Henry" (one of the best on the record IMO, but 10 minutes long!), "Song of
Solomon" (quite a bit of aggression), and "Under Your Nose". There are
tracks like "King Fade"--an atmospheric instrumental--which seems to remind
me of some earlier PS work; "Fine Friend" (the single), "Suggestion", "One
Blue Hill", and "Gesture of a Fear" which are all nice and melodic and
moody, and then "Angel (will you be my)" and "Always I", which are very
poppy and not that great.

Few of the tracks on "Slow Buildings" really don't compare too much with "In
Ribbons" as far as I'm concerned.

When they were on tour, I had a chat with Meriel about their sound on "Slow
Buildings" and I mentioned how much the songs had a more feminine aura about
them now compared to before.  Her face lit up in agreement, so I suppose I
hit upon something there.  I mean, naturally, the band is now--or was--two
women and two men as opposed to 3 men and one woman, so there's going to be
some difference--especially with one of the women writing the songs and
doing all the singing, with the other woman as backup.  I dunno...it's not
"feminine" like Lush are feminine.  It's a different sorta thing altogether.
Darker or something.

My take is that, while the wave function expresses a continuous
distribution of _probabilities_, any actual observation or experience we
have is of the waveform collapsed into particular discrete quantum
states. Hence our brains can be considered digital despite the analog
nature of the waveform.

(Personally I subscribe to the many-worlds interpretation, where the
waveform merely describes the branching of the universe at every
observation. In this case the universe at any instant is always quantized
with the analog behavior being limited to describing the relative
magnitudes of the different branches.)

There are lots of X-based (ie GUI) mailers which can do filtering:
zMail, UMT etc.
Actually, in an UNIX enviroment, any mail client can use filtering if the
local delivery agent is capable of this - for instance, one can use
- procmail
- deliver
- or even "filter" from the ELM package
for local mail transport, then mail-filtering is available for every
user on the system, no matter what mail client is used.

Thought I would comment on my, probably, favorite band ever.
1. New single. 3 songs, first one is bad, two others- basic Curve a-la
"Crystal","Women are from Venus.." and "Original" track from Leftfields.
Not much progression, tho, but I really like the stuff anyway.. The team is
the same, can't fortell much, but they have potential for sure.

2.Scylla n'stuff. I wouldn't really bother for Toni's solo work. She
certainly matured over the years, but, IMHO, has a strong leaning towards
Eurythmics kinda pop (I llove Eurythmics..duck). The whole thing was
hatched by D.Stewart anyway, but Dean and Toni's State of Play album or
Toni's later solo album are complete disaster. It's almost as you need this
voice to compliment Dean's (don't forget Moulder's input as well!) sonic
treatments.

3.There was a mention that Dean was writing "flying saucer's music" during
the hiatus- it'd be really interesting to see if it'll see the
light'o'the'day.

...when i saw this film i recognized these pieces as being part of one of

was somewhat under the impression that the soundtrack pieces were played
by balanescu, but i could certainly be wrong.  i know that nyman wrote
most of his quartets with balanescu in mind, so i believe their rendering
is probably one of the best.

...and as an aside, though i really enjoy what the kronos quartet did with
philip glass's string pieces, i would generally rank balanescu as being
the more superior and interesting of the two.

as fantastic as the packaging, but i enjoyed it nonetheless.

anyways, these are available at Rhino Records in Claremont, CA.  or i can
pick 'em up for those who are interested.

        I was in a shitty mood when I went out tonight, and was fully prepared t

be very cynical. I had no idea who Tanya's support band were to be, so I was
more than pleasantly surprised to see Neil, Rachel et al  walk on to the stage.
The set was full of new stuff - the only things off the last album that they
played were Where Is The Love and Sarah - but it was brilliant. They are
seriously Laurel Canyon 1972 in parts, but there is something about them which
really gets under the skin. I was well impressed, and I'm still under the spell
of Rachel Goswell - but that's my problem.
        Tanya's band included the angel-voiced Mary Lorson, and the supergeek
Billy Cote from Madder Rose as well as three others whose names I forget.
Listen, forget Belly. I saw them four times, and Tanya's set of entirely new
songs pisses on that old stuff. I was rude about 'Human' when I reviewed the
promo twelve, but it sounded great live - 'Bum' took two starts, but was pretty
fine too - but there are a lot of songs in the set much better than either of
those. This was easily the best post-Muses Tanya show I've seen. I had a side
bet of a beer with a friend that they'd do a Madder Rose song as one of the
encores, and sure enough they played 'Car Song'. A really great show. (by the
way - this is a review of Manchester, UK, Hop & Grape - I neglected to mention
that. Forgive me, I'm a bit pissed)

PS Rich H, or anyone in the know - Kristen's baby is due about now. Any news? I
hope mother and sprog are fine.

It is still available from the 4ad mailorder catalog. At least it was
as of a year ago. I think with shipping it cost about $12. I don't think
it has gone out of print since.

Subject: the Grassy Knoll/ FSOL "dead cities"


two recommendations..
the most curious stuff lately have been coming from those merging
territories between more defined and established styles..

the Grassy Knoll "s/t", "Positive" (Nettwerk/antilles)
Future Sound of London (FSOL)"Dead Cities" (caroline/Astralwerks)

these are two works that fuse the darker attidude usually handed out by
"industrial" gang to the engaging rhythms of IDM and acid jazz, staying at
the same time somewhere inbetween.  Kudos to FSOL for branching out..
serving now their always sophisticated collages not out of extra-planetary
forests (Lifeforms) or seedy cellars (ISDN), but right out of abandoned
laboratories and
 dark corners of the City run by Tyrell corporation. Try to get a hold of
lim.ed Cd. It has 190-pages booklet with their as always mind-boggling
images.You can get an idea at Astralwerks homepage.
Good balance of fast, aggressive tracks and more contempative pieces
doesn't ruin the overall acid rain aftertaste. maybe the ambre of s/thing
rotting also..not Vangelis's martini palate definitely. A must for any IDM
fan to check out.
Reminiscent of some of the Delerium work at times.

haven't seen much-deserved praise for the first from the Grassy KNoll last
year and no mention now.  The guy has a penchant for sampling jazzy wind
instruments over fast and moderately aggressive insistent beats. Almost
like a mold between
mmm..dang, slow and not so android Front Line Assembly (or, better, C.Key's
work in Doubting Thomas project) with some oh-so-cool acid jazz thing. Ah,
nope, not even close..   Remember last year's Little Axe blues-trip-hop
sort of fusion? But not that straightforward tho.  Well, check him out...
he could well be on Too Pure roster..unusual but not too offensively
experimental..rhythmic.
Gee, how many times did I say rhythmic?


And now opening the showdown display for the curious!
My fellow labrats are subjected to the thrilling sounds of:

ShadowyMen on the Shadowy Planet "Savvy show stoppers"
