Subject: OK...so this is what they call the 4AD POLL


Okay, gang...we did this last year with some success (I think).

Everyone was given a list of numerous categories (such as best 4AD album of
the year, best 4AD video, best 4AD-related concert, as well as some non-4AD
categories)  You are given TEN votes in each category which can be divided up
any way that you choose.

I will post the categories HERE before Friday under the name "1997 4AD POLL",
and I will take your responses until the last day of January.  I believe that
I posted results on Valentine's Day last year, but we'll make it short and
sweet this time around (the screaming new 200MHz Mac I'm gazing into at the
moment helps considerably).

So start thinking about your faves from the year...ALL are welcome to respond
to this year's poll...this is not to sway people's opinions, but to get an
idea of what people on the list as a whole are thinking.  If your opinions
verge from the norm, that's GREAT coz it's what makes you special.
I will ask that your responses NOT be posted to the list but sent to me direct
ly at StMuse@aol.com   (just to separate all the mailing list stuff from your
responses)...if you have any input to give, please let me know before Friday!
Thanks everyone, and have a peaceful 1997.

moonlighting years back....

What's Kevin Spacey got to do with Canada?

Now, Kevin *McDonald*, that would be a different matter...

Probably, not everyone on here knows what a "shite" is either (most teenagers
from the US).  But why would you want to understand what was obviously a SPAM?
Please send your shouting e-mail directly to the sender of the offending article
since it is highly unlikely that he or she reads the list.

Greyson, you ethnocentric dweeb....  The internet does exist outside the
borders of the US of A.  People are free to speak any language they want
on any list (as far as I am concerned), and if you don't like it then
just ignore the posts, or remove yourself from this mailing list.


And to quote a cheesy, but appropriate saying....

Greyson, if ignorance is bliss, you must be orgasmic.

Those observations filled one hundred and seventy-four lines of the digest!

I know this is mean, but then I get sick of this stuff.  E-mail's not hard,
really - and remember that nearly five hundred people are getting your
message duplicated.  Do I care that there are no good shows in Podunk,
Georgia?

I will probably be blasted for this message, but I'm tired and cranky and
back at work for the first time in a month ...

                Cheers,

                        Matthew.

In short (very short) some other well-known bands who've recorded for 4AD
are the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Throwing Muses, Belly, Bauhaus,
Modern English, M/A/R/R/S ...

The best thing to do is to read 4AD-L's Frequently Asked Questions list,
which includes a list of all bands who've ever recorded for 4AD. The
address is:


There's a heck of a lot more stuff in the FAQ, including directions on
how to unsubscribe (for the clue-deprived who've lost the directions) and
plenty of links to mail-order stores, other mailing lists and relevant
web sites.

You might also want to check the "Eyesore" site, which is a database of
all 4AD artists and releases:
