found a couple of new discs at the station with reviews that said
they were reminiscent of Cocteau Twins. played one song from each
and there are similarities in sound but i haven't had time to listen
all the way thru so overall they may be garbage. the bands are "Her
Majesty The Baby" and "Baby Gopal". (weird "baby "coincidence.)
anybody else heard them?

Saw Kelley Deal 6000 lastt night on one of her British
dates. Was quite fortunate cos the tour was rearranged so
it now took in Birmingham, which it missed before. Some
other town missed out instead.
Missed most of the Radar Bros set due to trouble getting
there, but the last song showed it could have been quite good.
The article in Melody Maker seemed quite right about them,
though how happy they were to be described as slowcore I
Kelley Deal then came on and urged the audience to move
forward. There was only a maximum of 100 people there, so
people were tending to hang back. They then proceeded to put
on a really good show, playing most of the album plus some
I didn't recognise.
I think given time Kelley will be giving Kim a real run for
her money. At the moment she seems to be confident and was
up for banter between songs. She told us about the video when
she plays the warrior princess. Also she described the Canyon
video as weird, though I can't see that being shown on
Canyon was the last song of the set, before the Radar Bros
came back on and a hearty rendtition of "SOS" by Abba rounded
of the event.

Well, I finally got around to hearing The Paladins today. You see,
somehow a copy ended up in the used bin so I figured what the hell, it's
4AD, you know it's gotta be the best. Anyway, cutting edge stuff, that.
The best beer drinking music I've heard from drunk asshole jocks since
the last porno I watched.
In all fairness to the band, they are very good for what they are: a Type
Of Music....and they very likely had no idea who or what 4AD once was, nor
what it may still have almost represented to foolish people like myself.
I'd have trouble harboring bad feelings toward them, but as for 4AD, they
can go straight to hell. This is beyond any insult I have encountered in
my memory, and I am through with that label. Right back atcha, assholes.
If Mojave haven't been kicked off the label by the end of the year for
pilfering company stationery, maybe I can get someone on ambient or
pure-impure to make me a tape of their new "we're not Slowdive" country
and western album. It's been a good three years or so, minus a few
temperamental types (you know who you are), but I *really* don't belong on
this list anymore...and quite frankly niether do most of you. Respect to
those here with loyalty deeper and broader than my own, and those with
stronger stomachs. And merry Christmas in advance, in case this list is
still seeing any traffic at all by then. Me, I have to get the hell out of
here before I stop believing in God.
Goodnight and unsubscribe. :( Drop me a line sometime.

The Pale Saints of "IN RIBBONS" and the Pale Saints of "SLOW BUILDINGS"
are two different bands. Ian was such a fundamental part of the early
Pale Saints creative process, that when he left, the bands direction
really changed. You have to approach the two records with different
expectaions. If you expect "In Ribbons" out of "Slow Buildings" you will
be disappointed. It still has the quirky rhythms and melodies as the early
PS stuff. It also has some great angelic vocals and great guitar... If
you can get yourself to stop asking WHY WHY WHY did Ian have to leave?!,
you will find that "Slow Buildings" has some wonderfull things buried in
it... but you have to be patient... it doesnt give up its charms easily.

True, except then it's no longer a real word (not that that is really an issue).

I dunno, that kinda smacks of egomania, naming your band after yourself.

I was reading Tanya Donelly's show review and someone mentioned
that Mojave 3 sang lots of new stuff, have they released anything
yet, I only have their first one.
How many singles have they released? how many EP's?

I'm sort of new to this list, so I don't really know if this is okay or what
have you (I apologize for sounding square). I was just wondering if there
is anyone out there who has any chords to any Mojave 3 songs, especially
"Mercy" and "Tomorrow's Taken". I would really appreciate it if you could
send them to me...
Thanks in advance :)

komeda? you mean stereolab light? that's not a knock, just a brief
description. komeda's CD "the genius of komeda" is wonderful. the
production and studio craft is magnificent. komeda is a foursome from
sweden with a female singer. their tunes show they have a great pop
sense. tho i wouldn't call them clubby, fans of pizzicato five should
really get into this group.

I think everyone should do what is told in this mail. Everyone who won`t

Yeah, I like the Her Majesty the Baby CD. It's slightly similar to
Cocteau Twins in places, like Lush in others, and like Sioucsie and the
Banshees in still others. It's good but not one of my favorites this
year. Now, there's one that was compared (by the label? the
distributors?) to Cocteau Twins that will end up on my "Favorite of the
Year" list by a band called Splashdown. Now, even tho they were compared
to Cocteau Twins, I can't really hear it all the much. They're more like
Hmmmm, Bjork, The Cranberries. Someone in a review called them a
"electronic Creatures". I just think it's an excellent CD.
Her Majesty the Baby is on nu.millenia
Splashdown is on Castle von Buhler, my second favorite label
Always listen to the before buying them. I don't want to get mail saying
you bought the CD on my recommendation, it's horrible, and I suck.

Uhhh, first of all, there is already a newsgroup in existence for teh
discussion of white power music. Thus this is a moot point.
But, for the record, I think they should be allowed to have their
newsgroup. Not because I think that they are right (in fact, especially
being Jewish I think they are quite wrong), but why should their views be
censored? I mean, today it's racists that are being censored, tomorrow
it's pot smokers and the day after that it's those advocating free speech.
Where does it stop?
For instance, I'm also on the SFRaves mailing list. It's basically a
group of friendly raver-types who like humanity and respect people's
beliefs. Yet I'm sure there are elements out there in power who would
like to see such discusion groups squelched because, among other things,
