Is it just me, or does it seems like it's been about 3 months since 4AD
has released anything besides the Tanya Donnelly EP and the
Palandins(who have no business carrying the label)?  Any upcoming releases
besides the "Albino Alligator" Soundtrack?

Just got Shellyan Orphan=B4s Waking Up at a used cd store here in Austin,
Duvall Discs (Or records) on Guadalupe. Plenty of used 4AD stuff there:
Kendra Smith, Liquorice, The Glee Club (which until today I havent had the
chance to listen to) and, get this, GusGus for $3! (Obviously, i got it!)
But anyway, the reason for this is that I loved Shellyan Orphan!
Since you fountains of wisdom know the right place to start, which SO cd
sould I pick? I loved all the tracks but in particular Burst, Dead cat and
Supernature on a Superhighway-

I appreciate the advice!

Subject: Dead Can Dance and the song Bylar.



For those of you interested, there's a compilation CD called The Echos
Living Room Concerts Volume 2 featuring the song "Bylar" by Lisa Gerrard
and Robert Perry (Brendan's Brother).  This is the second song they sang
on the tour and previously unreleased!!!

        It's a great song starting off with dulcimer and then into
mantra-like harmonizing.  The song is 7:29 so it's full length.

        Call 1-800-321-ECHO for this comp.  The rest of the CD is pretty
good too!
        It came out to a total of $18.98 incl. S/H so it's a little pricey,
but worth it.
                        Jesse.

 My mistake - there was certainly a fuss a few years ago when it was
 discovered that a female German ex-terrorist was living in the UK and
 working as a car mechanic or something similar.  There are various
 theories about the B-M mass suicide - the official version is that it
 was a response to a failed hijacking (done with the intention of
 securing their release), conspiracy theorists point out that Baader
 couldn't have reached behind his own head to shoot himself,
 conspiracy-conspiracy theorists say he shot himself in a manner which
 would lead people to believe he had been executed...

 Haven't heard it - the lyrics are very heavily laden with seventies
 terrorism imagery, see www.niweb.com/music/auteurs.  I'm always a bit
 dubious about that sort of thing, making entertainment from misery, but
 the Auteurs' final album "After Murder Park" dealt with similarly dark
 themes and did it very well.  I just get the impression that the Baader
 Meinhof album is a little too steeped in terrorist chic for my taste,
 and doesn't really have any political intent.

 It's odd looking back at the seventies now - I was six when the decade
 started, so I can remember the hijackings, Mogadishu, Idi Amin, the PLO
 and all the rest of it, though I didn't understand what was going on
 until later - and I think Haines (who is about my age) is using the
 imagery in that slightly child-like way, as a vague sinister presence
 rather than being specific.

They had a really cool EP out domestically in 91 or 92 called Sonny and
Sam.  After that they went a bit country and released a full length.
Sonny and Sam was made up up songs from three UK eps.

I remember something Frank Zappa once wrote about this phenomena of
"retro".  can't quote his exact words but it was something about how
the actual time that passes between a trend and the nostalgia for
that trend seems to be decreasing. being FRank Zappa he naturally went
to speculate on what would happen when we reach that point where we
wont be able to do anything without immediately feeling nostalgic about
it.    does anyone have his book BTW?

Oh, I would start with Helleboraine.  Probably the easiest to find.
