Woo-hoo! here here for more Lois talk!  I think she would fit in very
nicely with the 4AD artists if Calvin had not given her a very nice home in
Olympia on K. I, too, have *heard* of this song, but I have no idea what it
is.  I know she has just released a new album, infinity something or rather
and a nice lil' EP, snapshot radio.  If anyone's interested, I can post
reviews later...

I just picked up "Distant Station" by Tele:Funken/Flying Saucer Attack.
Can anybody out there tell me more about Tele:Funken?  It appears that
this is entirely constructed from FSA samples.  Thanks.

i picked up snapshot radio after hearing about the low connection.  the
ep is excellent and the five songs on it are all different in feel,
unlike low(not a slam on low).  didn't know about the album, but i plan
on picking it up now.

a review of the album would be cool, lisaroo...

Hi All -

In response to Aaron Hill's question about Tarnation's review in the NME, I
have posted it from the NME's website.  I've also included the Laika review as
well,  as I thought it may be of interest. (apologies if this has been posted
already, I'm a digest listee)

Hi there.

My name is Baldur Stef=E1nsson and I=B4m one of the Gus Gus members. For
those of you who are interrested to come to Iceland I just wanted to
express the low prices that we can get. It=B4s pounds (=A3) 220.- for the
flights from the cities that Cliff Walton from 4AD mentioned in his
letter on the 13th of january and pounds (=A3) 35.- (pr. room, single or
double) for the night in a hotel in Reykjavik. Tickets to the concert
are pounds (=A3) 15.- This is going to be one crazy weekend in the
frozen north.

Greetings,
Baldur

hey for all you Godzuki fans, and for fans of good pop music in general,
i just got the March Records double CD "Pop American Style"...good good
music from all bands like Godzuki, Holiday, Rocketship, Flowchart, and
lots more.  Oh, and there's this pretty amazing song by a band called
Salteen (who has since broken up) that you should hear (ok, so i happen
to be in a band called AERODROME (memorize the name...we're gonna be
famous one day) with the lead singer who has a GREAT GREAT voice, so
what?  it's still a good song!)...ok, enough of the shameless plug...

Subject: Lois Maffeo/Trenchmouth


I guess Lois is a bit "thislisty" in a way.  Jenny Toomey's (Liqourice)
label, Simple Machines, released a Lois 7" (or a split 7", actually) for
their Working Holiday series.  Also, Lois' old band, Courtney Love (NOT
the singer...the BAND...Lois and Courtney were once roommates) have a
song on the Teenbeat 50 CD, released by Marky Mark Robinson...so i guess
she's kinda this listy..

Anyway, I don't have "Infinity Plus", but she mostly played all the songs
from it when i saw her live.  She also had Damon Locks (formerly of
Trenchmouth) join her on stage for a song.  It sounded really good.  For
those of you who are interested in picking up one of her albums, she has
4 now, i guess...Butterfly Kiss (with Stuart Moxham of Young Marble
Giants producing and playing bass), Strumpet (with help from Donna Dresch
and some guy from Codeine), Bet the Sky, and the new album.  Plus some
EP's scattered here and there.  I would recommend Strumpet or Butterfly
Kiss.  BK is mostly acoustic and pretty, while Strumpet rocks a bit more,
and has more "hit" songs.  Oh yeah, and please post a review of the new
one....

AND, for those of you who don't know Trenchmouth, they are this very
dubby band (at least there final album, The Broadcasting System was),
VERY VERY VERY much in the vain of Too Pure....with the wacky bass lines
and sampled drums and all that.  Anyone into Laika (except Trenchmouth
has a male singer) and Long Fin Killie should definitely check out this
band!  You would not be dissappointed at all...


Always available for useless info,

Matt
