Help!  I'm looking for a copy of Cocteau Twins GARLANDS import CD (the
version with extra tracks).

I'm looking for a friend who's willing to pay $20 (and who probably has
stuff to trade).

Thanks for the help.

Tony

Yes, does anyone have any information on this?  I love both of those
songs.  :G)  And who's Outrageous Cherry, anyway?

I spent two minutes with a guitar this morning and learned how to play my
favourite "Stars on ESP" song, "The Sand that Holds the Lakes in Place."
Thought I'd share it (monospace font possibly required):

e-------------------------
B---00--00--0--00--00--0--
G---44--44--4--44--44--4--  repeat
D-------------------------
A-3---3---3--3---3---3----
E-------------------------

e-----0-------0-------3-0---
B----1-1-----1-1-----1-1----
G---0---0---0---0---0------- repeat etc.
D--0-----0-0-----0-0--------
A-2-------0-------2------2-0
E---------------------------

Hardly complex, but then a lot of good music isn't!

                Cheers,

                        Matthew.

To Anybody Who May Know:

By this, they don't mean MTV's Alternative Nation show in the US, do they??
I would hate to think I missed it.  I really want to see the film.

Was it a good review?

  From what I can remeber it was a good review , but I no longer
have the paper to post the review up. I am sure one of the other
British listies may still have it and fancy posting it. The reviewer
must have been in a good mood cos the Laike ep also got a good review.

Except that Tom's German was a little shaky (no offence meant) so he
probably just had a little laugh and forgot about it.

Does anyone else like Lois Maffeo, of Lois fame?  I think she's
absolutley wonderful...very beautiful music, and her voice is great, too.
 I was wondering if someone could help me out.  I saw Lois a couple
months ago play with Dub Narcotic Sound System, and they did a song
together, where Lois sang lead vocals.  It was probably THE BEST song
i've heard this year.  I listened to the new DNSS album, and the song
that she sings on the album wasn't the same one that she sang with them
live.  Anyone know the name of the song?


Thanks...


Matt


sorry if this isn't very "thislisty"....

Subject: Re: sea, cake, and gastr del sol


well, sea and cake and gastr are both kind of in the Tortoise vain (I
think John McEntire is or was a member of all three bands)...the
differences are that S & C is more of an outlet for the songwriting of
Sam Prekop (other members include Archer PRewitt of the late great
Coctails), and is more rockin' than Gastr or Tortoise.  Gastr is kind of
weird; crazy time signatures, sparatic piano and guitar mixed in
occasionaly with some vocals. For me, the more enjoyable is definiately
the Sea and Cake.  The album Nassau is brilliant.  A lot more
straighforward, but extremely pretty and very very rockin'.  You can't go
wrong with them.  They have three albums out now, and i believe they're
working on another one right now.  Also, if you like these bands, you
have to like the coctails.  They're last album (self titled) was great.
Very slow and moody and very beautiful...i hope this helps....

Subject: Re: sea, cake, and gastr del sol


I'll speak up for Gastr del Sol.  The latest album, _Upgrade & Afterlife_
on Drag City, is wonderful.  It's math rock, rather ambient but not in the
electronic definition.  Spirals of acoustic guitar and slow monotonous
builds that for most people would be boring as hell (I guess it is boring
as hell), but for me I find intriguing and a pleasure to listen to,
particularly as background music or late at night.  Well, that didn't do
anything to define the sound, but there you have it.
