G'day,

I saw a couple of cheap Xymox CD's yesterday - can't remember the titles now
(one was from about 1989 I think). Anyway, can someone tell me what this
band are like?

Thanks,
Geoff

Well, actually, I think I'm ready to make that scramble...so, which
titles do you consider to be "must haves"?

And yes, I am definitely going to the show! Thanks for all the
recommendations!

hello everyone, it is i, the nick-name-less. taunt me all you want.
speakinng of hnia and wierdness, what's the story on "darkest dreams"?
there's lyrics and everything but all i hear is some moaning and wailing
glazed over by guitars. what up? don't get me wrong, it's one of my
favorite songs.

ok, personal messages:

Subject: ?rosewater elisabeth?


ive heard some of you mention this band before in the general context of -
as someone put it: CT/early hnia/love spirals downwards/dead can
dance/love is colder than death; - by the way my reason for all of this is
that if i want rosewater elisabeth ill have to get it shipped from the US
so its not just your simple =A314 job - anyway my point is that the above
list of bands is rather ambigous according to my taste in that i love
CT/early hnia/LSD, i like early DCD but cannot stand some of their later
stuff and do not like LICTD at all. you see my dilema?, can someone be
more specific as to where rosewater elisabeth fit into all of this
confusion - i dont want to miss out on anything great but i dont want to
spend loads of my dwindling money supply on something im going to hate.

understand?  =20
thanks.

I bought Swan's 'Children of God' double LP back in the day...In fact, I
listened to it just last week before this thread started up. It's the only
Swans I own though. What's their latest stuff like? This one was all S-L-O-W
and deathly vocals. But by the above post, have they mellowed out a bit?

Thanks,
Geoff

Thank you everyone that posted favorably about Low & Swans. On your
recommendations, I just got Low's ep "Transmission", and on one listen I
decided to attend the show. I'll let ya'll know how it goes...oh, by the
way, I did hear from someone that it is the Swans farewell tour, but I
also hear that they live here in Georgia, so maybe I'll be seeing them
around again.

Trey,

I've heard a lot about you from this list but unfortunately haven't heard
any of your stuff. Do you know if you've been released here in Australia?
If not can I order by credit card?

Look forward to hearing from you, I'm more than happy to get your
newsletter. Have a good tour.

Rosewater Elizabeth is closer to HNIA or CT/LSD in that they have very little of
the medieval character that characterizes mid-era DCD or late Love is Colder
than Death.

There are pretty vocals sometimes without proper lyrics (therefore, the CT/DCD
connection--as if this were a real connection at all) with dynamic musical
accompaniment.  The connection to HNIA would be the odd juxtoposition of sounds
here and there (though they are far less adept than Defever) while there are
songs with a soft building urgency that is remniscent of Treasure era Cocteaux
or Mazzy Star.

In each of these comparisons, Rosewater Elizabeth, come up a bit short ... BUT
comparisons never do a band justice and won't prepare you for the beauty that is
... Rosewater Elizabeth.

I highly recommend them.

Groundhog Day!

released, possibly because Gregg Araki's previous films sucked (I saw
only "The Living End" which is on my top ten worst ever list), but
someone I respect said nice things about it, so I saw it last weekend,
and was more than pleasantly surprised (except for the end). This
Mortal Coil figure in the plot, sort of.

Subject: Re: Throwing Muses cassette


i think the album is rare if only in the fact that it's only available on
import.. BUT that will soon change, because the first album is being
re-released as a double album with the 1985 demos cassette, chains
changed, and some old tracks recently re-done.  And possible a full
lyrics booklet inside????  we can only hope....


speaking of the muses....

does anyone know when that documentary film on them will be completed??
and where it will be available???

thanks...
