Subject: Happy New Year From Throwing Muses


I just received this message from throwingmuses@throwingmusic.com...

****************************************************************

Howdy!

We just wanted to pass this press-release info on to y'all...

****************************************************************

Kick off the New Year with two soon to be coveted Throwing Muses releases.
FREELOADER (RCD5 1055), the follow-up EP to Throwing Muses' critically
acclaimed album LIMBO (RCD/RAC 10354), makes its way into stores January 21.
And to tide you over until you can see them live again, Rykodisc and
Throwing Music also present a special online sale of Throwing Muses' LIVE TO
TAPE EP.

The promotional-only six-track LIVE TO TAPE EP captures the essence of
Throwing Muses' high energy live in-studio performance and will be
available for a limited time only via the Rykodisc and Throwing Music
web sites (www.rykodisc.com and www.throwingmusic.com).  Recorded live
to 2-track at Stable Sound, in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in August 1996, the
six
songs, "Shark," "Ruthie's Knocking," "Night Driving," "Serene," "Bright
Yellow Gun," and "Bea," draw from different eras of Throwing Muses' career.
LIVE TO TAPE was originally intended for promotional-only use by 4AD UK.
4AD offered "virtual" radio sessions to local BBC stations that wouldn't
otherwise have the opportunity to broadcast an in-studio Throwing Muses
performance.  The EP was also sent to select college radio stations in the
USA in November 1996.

These stripped-down and electrified versions of old and new songs
reflect the strength of Throwing Muses' live set.  Songs like "Shark and
"Bea" ring with the same buzzing intensity that infuse the band live, and the
usually serene "Serene" is unleashed with new vigor on this plugged-in
version.

The FREELOADER EP features the bonus tracks "If" (a Latin Playboys cover),
"Take" (a cool live remix) and a really sweet Muses-style lullaby, "Heel
Toe".  A generous portion of Muses collectibilia, FREELOADER celebrates the
lauded Rykodisc/Throwing Music debut LIMBO, described by Rolling Stone as
"too compelling to go unnoticed" and by Option as a "proud moment for
freethinkers everywhere."

This release is available only at www.rykodisc.com or
www.throwingmusic.com, or through Earful (1-800-2-EARFUL /
1-800-232-7385) for the very affordable price of $4.98 plus $1.50
shipping & handling (a little more for fans overseas).

Subject: Re: The myth behind HNIA's Wall of Speed?


this is a very interesting hypothesis, however it is all based on the line
'are you montague?' which i always thought actually said 'are you mine to
keep?'.

also, i think that the line you couldnt make out says: 'from shore of far
away place' - he changed it from 'from the shore of a far off land' from
that esp continent track.

does anybody have anymore 'stars on esp'/'universal frequencies' lyrics?,
maybe we should all get together and work them out, i dont know what he
thought he was doing not printing them. id really like to know all of the
words to that noise thing after 'summer of esp' which starts off with 'its
hot every morning, its hot every night....'

seeya.

Actually, yes, some of my idea was based on the supposed "montague" line,
but more than that it was based on the title "Wall.." and the "whisper
falls on a willing ear" and "send a message to me" and the middle-ages
sounding prcessional music at the end of the song before the segue into
Beech Boys...

I didn't sound this way in the myth I transcribed from Morford and Lenardon's
"Classical Mythology" but in Ovid's version and Cicero's version they very
much emphasize the part about the wall and that they whispered back and
forth and slipped messages through the crack in their wall.  Especially if
you read it in the Latin, it's much more emphasized..

I'm probably completely off base, anyway. hi-ho.

cheers,
lisa

Subject: Low, Swans Concert


There's a live show featuring Low & the Swans coming  here, and I'm
wondering if I should brave the howling winter winds to venture out. I
don't have & haven't even heard these two bands, I humbly confess.

Anyone want to give me guidance so I don't kick myself later?

Thanks,

Carol

Anyone unfortunate enough to have tried the tab that I sent for "The Sand

typed it in.  The verse is fine but the chorus is just wrong.

Hi.
Found an extra This Mortal Coil Sixteen Days e.p. today at the store.  Will
sell if someone wants it.  Starting bid is $5.

Also, I am looking for a guy who sells 4ad and other stuff named Dicketydik
on Aol.  If someone has his home address, I need to send him something.  I
can't seem to be able to contact him otherwise.

Please email privately.

Also, if you are a Smith's fan watch out for The World Still Won't Listen.
 It is EVIL Hardcore shit mocking the SMiths.  Yes, it is a tribute
album--but evil.

 Honestly, I don't think you would.  It is more akin to Colourbox I think or
newer wolfgang Press.  You are able to "get down to it."  I think it is great
though.
