This isn't music stuff, but I thought someone might be interested...

>means you). They will be organized by country, and I will
>include as many as space will allow. (I have access to a
>great museum so your stuff will be treated with care and

so got to see the hnia type band and
the red house kids the other night.
here's a review for people on the run in the 90's.
hnia rocked. not in the "they were really great"
sense.. they just rocked out. it was pretty
cool but nothing really special. we didnt even get a
puppet show. but there was a big oven mitt and an
otter on stage so i think that made up for it.
i may have pictures if they turned out.
the red house martins were good. marks voice was really
powerful. he started with an accoustic version
of uncle joe. when the rest of the band popped on
phils (lead gui) amp started playing some detroit
station (amps and gui gear sometimes pick up radio stations)
and it was pretty loud so they stopped during the
first song. mark apologized and while phil was
trying to fix it they ripped out 2 ted nugent songs.
the mix of material was only from _rollercoaster_, _bridge_,
_ocean_, and nothing off _songs_, or _down_...
that was cool. mark was quite the funny guy. some
guy in the front asked them to play "rock you like a hurricane"
but they didnt know it so made it up. they also played
"white christmas" for warren. the sound was great and
i didnt really get to hear what the lead gui sounded like,
so if someone knows if hes good tell me. thanks.

is a remake of someone elses song (not sure exactly who....) ask around on
the list again for more info.

Hey everyone, I had no idea that HNIA was on tour right now (i'm
quite in the dark about these things) can anyone tell me if they'll be
anywhere near florida in the next few weeks? I'd love to see them while on
my christmas break.
and about red house painters, from what ive gathered from other people's
posts, it appears RHP is touring with them....ive never heard them before,
what are they like? are they more of a noisy type 4ad band (like the pixies
and breeders) or more mellow?

...Which will be out on the 21st of January in all the Ryko/TM
It's really nice, in a "flip pack" (like Huh, and Grooves Magazine,
y'know?), and with 3 beautful b-sides...1) "If", another Latin Playboys
cover...2) A good live version of "Take"... and 3) "Heel Toe", a pretty
little Muses-type lullaby song...
Very fancy...ask your local stores about it...

I noticed that the December issue of Pulse, the free rag you get at
Tower Records, has a little write up on the "Music For Vampires"
compilation. Which makes me wonder if some Tower stores in the states
are importing this item...
Has anyone heard "Bon Bon Lifestyle"?? It's the new album from The
Jospehine Wiggs Experience. Released on the Beastie's Grand Royal label
but minus the Capitol push, I found myself really liking this album.
Apparently, Wiggs used to be in The Breeders who I believe are a 4AD
band that had a degree of success a couple years back. Wiggs' new
version of "Head To Toe" from The Breeders EP of the same name is nicely
re-done. Also on Grand Royal is Lucious Jackson, and I can't get their
"Naked Eye" song out of my head. They played this song on Letterman a
few weeks back and blew me away.
Copies of SCHEER 4 CD are trickling through to import shops. Try to get
it as it features two new and previously unreleased tracks. Both "First
Contact" and "Sex Kitten" are worth searching out this cool promo for.
The neat v23 sleeve card is beautiful as well.
Has anyone heard about when those Detox EP's are available? Or are they
out now and I just didn't notice??

Has anyone heard of the song "Primitive Painters"? Is it by CT?
