erika hoffman co-wrote "bad luck letter" and "the bees."
no she does not add any vocals on "stars on e.s.p.

"universal frequencies" and "sand" were co-written by the marvelous

I know this is a serious longshot, but I'm looking for the this mortal
coil posters that were released in '88 or so, specifically the ones
that v23 did for 'Drugs' and 'filigree and shadow'. If anyone
knows where I might be able to get them (4ad mail order?) I'd
go completely nuts. :)

oh, c'mon...lovesliescrushing are gothic shoegazer wannabes who don't know
how to play their instruments or sing (but hide it beneath the
fuzz)...their fear of the space bar is also somewhat annoying, if not
ridiculously pretentious...

alison's halo released a 7" in '94...anything since then?  nope!  can't
really count them...

shiFt are just plain boring...

nightblooms?  are they still releasing stuff?  more college boy rock than
shoegazing...

i'd recommend alison's halo's one 7"  (is the demo tape still
avail?)...stay away from lenola...there is really very little music being
made that sounds like the traditional shoegazing bands (when you listen to
lovesliescrushing do you think chapterhouse?  i didn't think so...)

chapterhouse's new compilation is excellent...flying saucer attack (who
resemble the traditional kids as much as anyone) have taken to realeasing
ambient shit (not to say all ambient is shit...)  people on the mbv list
talk a lot about lenola, but they're just terrible...bethany curve and
sylvania are mentioned quite a bit, too...haven't heard bethany curve, and
the sylvania i've heard doesn't much resemble shoegazing -- more like
perfume tree's sort of thing...

when i get the urge for new shoegaze, i've been substituting indiepop as of
late...really dig the quickspace lp and the rise ep quite a bit...

well, bye...

Subject: unsigned bands...demos wanted


Hey all:

Well, after a long hiatus, I'm planning to
start my web zine Dreampop again
(now that I am no longer a grad student
at NYU, I'm now on a commercial server with
T3 access to the net....)

An idea for the first issue of the redesign
was to have a feature on unsigned bands
in the Twins, MBV, Slowdive, Spiritualized,
Loop, etc. etc. vein. I basically want to have a soundlclip
with small photo/cover art image and I'd write
a small blurb of my impressions....

So if you're interested, send me some email.

Thanks a lot,
-B

A few notes on second generation shoegazing:

Lenola is amazing, though their studio work is a little spotty and hard
to find. I saw them open up for Spiritualized, and they definately fit
the bill. Although I think they're still trying to 'find their sound' in
some ways, some fo the sounds they've found along the way are amazing,
and if they keep half of them for the final mix it'll be stellar.

Sylvania reminds me of early Slowdive more than anything else out
there... really nice etherial swirling. It occasionally suffers from the
language barrier though (spanish)... even though the whole shoegaze
thing is SUPPOSED to be dreamy and indistinct, sometimes you need the
vocal to push it in a cognitive direction...
But other than that, Sylvania is beautiful... dreamy, but
insistent and encompassing.

Though it borders more on drone, I would say Bowery Electric belongs in
this categorey as well. Great stuff.

The new Chapterhouse compilation is pretty great, but its still missing a
few tracks from all the eps (just to make the completists groan!)
