Matt says...

>>Last but not least, i picked up the first Roches record fro $1.00.  I was
shocked when listening to it that it reminded me a lot of Liqourice!!  At
least the song structores...not the vocals too much.<<

Funny, because I could always hear a bit of the Roches in Jenny Toomey's
voice. Of course there's the cover of Terry And Maggie Roche's "Jill of All
Trades" on "Listening Cap", which is pretty faithful to the original.

The most recognizable thing about the Roches IMO is actually the vocals.
Truly original and interesting vocal stylings (weird, off, three-part
harmonies...that dog. seem, to me, to borrow from the Roches in regard to
vocals) particularly on the first Roches album proper. "The Roches" really is
a masterpiece. Features production and "Frippertronics" from Master Robert
Fripp himself.

Shutting up.

Subject: my music is dead


hey 4aders.....Ive been going to the music shops lately to try and pick up a
couple new cds to give my collection a kick, to throw it off a bit.. but im
stuck, I've run out of music ideas.
        I'm looking for suggestions on what I should buy.  Im new to 4ad and
this list, and I havent heard of half of the bands you all talk about.  im
really open minded to music and tend to prefer more unusual stuff and i
really like atmospheric type stuff (skylab#1, cocteau's "tinderbox", black
tape for a blue girl, "fyt" by this mortal coil) and i love HNIA's "home is
in your head" but that's about all ive really heard in this area of music.

any suggestions of what i should try? and i cant get anything that is really
underground since i have no access to good record stores....

Safety Dance went:

You can dance if you want to
You can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance
and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine

We can go where we want to
The night is young and so am I
And We can dress real neat from heads to our feet
and surprise 'em with a victory cry

Chorus was:

And we can dance...Dansez
We can dance we can dance
Everything's outta control
We can dance We can dance
They're doin' it from pole to pole
We can dance We can dance
Everybody look at your hands
We can dance We can dance
Everyone's takin' a chance
Its a safety dance
Its a safety dance
Its a safety dance

This is NOT the song I was referring to people!!!

All of MBM's CDs are way ahead of their time, IMHO. I think Jack Dangers' style 
as evolved significantly in the past two years, and the 2-disc set "Subliminal S
ndwich" is pure genius to my ears.

If I had to rank the albums....
"Subliminal Sandwich" > "99%" > "Storm the Studio" > "ARMED AUDIO WARFARE" >
  "Satyricon"

Trainspotting bit: the Chem Bros and the Prodigy have in the past few years samp

I'm a Canadian and I remember all too well the songs
of Quebec French Canadian new wave dance popsters
Men Without Hats. No it is not Men without Hats who did
this song, I ask again who did the the song where the lyrics
go "You know the Dead can dance, the dead can dance, the dead can dance,
you know the dead, the dead the dead can dance" It was done by an
obscure independent group who moved onto other things
after this one. I think this song came out arond the time that
Aion was out incidentally. there was a cheezy keyboard and
two guys singing.

 CDs are far ahead of their time, IMHO. Jack Dangers' style has evolved=
 significantly in the past two years, and the 2-disc set "Subliminal=

Sounds suspiciously like "Swedish Radio and the Big Beat". If it is, it has
Paint it Black Live which is brilliant. There is also another live EP wihich has
"do

The follow-up to that, _So Tough_, is a bit more fully formed and adventurous.

I've heard of this too, I think...I know they put out something like that
that was all acoustic and had a cover version on it, because a friend of

Could be the early "Shine So Hard" EP that has "Zimbo" (A/k/a "All My
Colours"). If so, you could probably find a Bunnyfan who'd buy it for
more than $1.50, but it isn't much musically.

"Do It Clean" (live) was released on a couple of different EPs/singles
(I think) and is a must-get -- if you never saw them live, it captures
well the way they'd close concerts. The covers referred to above are
also good.=20

There's a full-length official live CD, but it's relatively
uninspired.

Yup,

BOTM member JJ Heldman is also a member of the band, Madison Electric
and label boss of Fantastik records.  They have released
stuff by the Shaprios and Hem.

BTW, Farrago is hk's label, and he's all out of his early records (which
were supposedly his best).  I thought the b side of "On Holdiay" (Their
7" on Quiddity) was good, the single as a whole paled compared to Q's
Cat's Miaow releases.

Well, I am the 21 year old Colombian student who has been trying to
suscribe to this mailing list. I have a copy of Cindytalk's  "Wappinschaw"
and I noticed there is list of several people, and there some of these
ones that I don't know who they are. Please e-mail me at this address :
j-plata@uniandes.edu.co

So, this is the list. Who is and what have they done so particular to be
included in this shiva-manifesto:
- Ulrike Meinhof
- Wolfe Tone
- Hugh MacDiarmid
- Stuart Christie
- Ho Chi Minh
- John MacLean
Also, in the respect to list, they include the following people:
- Pascale Ogier
- Kathy Acker
- Dick Gaughan
- Louise Brooks
- Mary Margaret O'hara
- Robert Burns
- Ken Mcmullen
- Sade Abe
- Bill Douglas
- Basho
- John Pilger
- Hamish Mender4son
- Jeannie Robertson
- The Jaguar Smile
- Ewan Maccoll
- Alasdair Gray
- Macbeth Mac Findlaech

By the way, does any one know if any cindytalk's albums have been released
in America? I can tell that I searched for cindytalk for more than four
years until I was able to find copies of Wappinschaw and In this world in
a local record store, believe it or not.

well, I bought camoflauge heart at a record store in america, and it wasnt
an import so Im assuming they have released cindy albums in the states.
camoflauge heart is good, but it seems to me it could have been so much
better. it had a lot of potential, but it didnt get used. oh well, maybe Ill
find gordon sharp's masterpiece someday.

I can't recall, Steven.  This is not the first time a band has dropped a

I have, unfortunately. Your point being...?

[It still amazes me how the most pathetic crap will, after spending some
well deserved time in the junk heap, start to come back in style. (The
Church Of the SubGenius calls this phenomenon "bulldada".) Like all the
1970s nostalgia, the bell bottoms and Adidas shirts and center-part
hairdos being worn by teenage fashion victims who never had the horror of
living through the actual 1970s. And now the apologists for lame 80s
nth-generation derivative nu-wave pop music come out of the woodwork.
C'mon, 4AD was great in those days because it was an _alternative_ to
that kind of cheez-wizz. If you hate Alannis Morisette or the Macarena
now, I guarantee you would have hated all these bands back then.]

Ignore my ranting. My blood sugar is low, time for lunch. I'll just go
and hum something by Wham! or Kajagoogoo while I microwave my risotto...

Fantastic Recs has also released 7"s by #Poundsign# and Schrasj.  Aim yr
browsers towards http://www.grfn.org/~initgrl/fantastic/ and pay 'em a
visit.  I dunno how relevant their releases are to this list, but I
personally endorse them.  :)

I dunno, as reluctant as I've been in the past about saying anything about
anything that I've released, I've gotta throw in my $0.02 here and say that
the early Buddha recordings on Farrago do _not_ represent my "best" work.
In fact, a lot of it is rough-hewn, shabby, unfocussed, and... well, not
very good.

The later stuff ("Yardsale" single onwards) is less rough-hewn, not quite
so shabby, better focussed, and not as bad.  Actually, I'm quite proud of
the Imaginary Friend (a botm side project) 7" that just came out on
Drive-in, and there's a few other cool Buddha releases due out in the near
future, but that's gratuitous self-promotion which usually gives me the
hives, so I'll stop before I really break out into a rash....  :)

Cheers,


hk

While the movie world may be shaken up with all those new reissues of
the Battlestar Gallactica series that Spielberg has been tinkering with,
it's easy to forget that January 31st is also the release date for Kevin
Spacey's "Albino Alligator", which has a soundtrack by 4AD's Michael
Brook.  This date is when it opens in Toronto at least...

Also, for Canadian Throwing Muses fans, Denon has set a release date
here for the "Freeloader" EP of February 4th.

What's taking the RECORD COMPANY so long to put their site out?  Aren't they
making enough money, with all those special editions and double singles?
Has the URL changed?
I haven't seen an answer to this, though many have asked others about it.
