Hell o

Movie time in Rotterdam at the moment, the International Filmfestival
Rotterdam (http://www.iffrotterdam.nl) started one week ago. I've seen
about twelve motion pictures at the festival, five more to go, one of them
called 'Crash', the latest one from David Cronenberg -> about people having
sex before, during and after a car crash, filmed in Toronto (Jeff, are you
in this movie?). Not sure yet what to think about the movie (great opening
titles!) but the music was very nice. Composed by Howard Shore -> sounds at
some times a bit like Robert Smith playing imaginary This Mortal Coil bits
(?) Ask your personal record salesman to put it on your headphones.

Other interesting movies:

Dadetown (a fake documentary about a small fake town in the state New
York), R.I.P. Rest in Pieces (a portrait of the strange Brooklyn artist Joe
Coleman), Basquiat (about painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, with David Bowie as
Andy Warhol), The Pillow Book (latest by Peter Greenaway, about sex, death
and calligraphy), I Shot Andy Warhol, The Frighteners, The Funeral,
Daytrippers, Trees Lounge (!), Lone Star, Hard Core Logo (Punk version of
This Spinal Tap) etc. I hope to get tickets for the suprise screening of
the new (!) David Lynch movie 'Lost Highway' tomorrow... did any of you see
this one yet?

This 4AD label alienation started about 5 years ago.
Apparently a lot of the original bands that were trend-setters of the
4AD label sound- lush, gloomy-highly melodic goth bands began to feel
the ego of IVO, the founder.  So, when there came an opportunity to
break the contract with Ivo's 4AD, they took it!

This was what I read from a Cocteau Twins interview 1 year ago.

Ya Jeff how come we didn't get in this one? ha ha

But Emiel I did recognize the area where James Spader
and Barbara Kara Unger's apartment looks down upon.
It is none other than the 401/DVP interchange a very
high impact area for car accidents. Its kind of cool to figure
out where they filmed certain parts of the film.

GOOD LORD NO!!!  First of all DO NOT use sandpaper...it is *far* too
abrasive.  A far better solution is to use a very slight bit of toothpaste
(not of the baking soda variety) and apply it exactly the opposite way as
described above.  Small scratches that the laser tracks across are easily
ignored, while scratches that travel along the tracks are more difficult
for the error correction circuitry to handle (due to the large amounts of
sequential errors).  It sounds like "dans" was referring to (with the
exception of the sandpaper thing) was the correct way to clean vinyl.  CDs
and vinyl records are *very* different beasts.

BTW, I have used this method to take scratches and such out of a large
number of discs with it never failing to restore the disc.

I try the toothpaste more than once and it works very well, i'll
recommend it widely.

This is based on the (in)famous J G Ballard book from the early '70s. As
a musical tie-in: the book was the direct inspiration of the song "Warm
Leatherette" (by The Normal, the first release ever on the Mute label,
later covered by Grace Jones).

I'm pleased to hear the film is being released. I'd heard rumors that the
studio was, um, disturbed by the film and wanted to can it. (If it's
anything like the book it'll be damn disturbing.)

>The Pillow Book (latest by Peter Greenaway, about sex, death
>and calligraphy)

I'm looking forward to this one too. Greenaway is amazing. (Everyone: go
out and rent "Drowning By Numbers" ... and if you do, tell me where you
found it so I can get it too! Preferably on videodisc so you can
freeze-frame it and hunt through the imagerie looking for _all_ of those
elusive numbers. I've seen it twice and still missed several of them.)

>I hope to get tickets for the suprise screening of

>this one yet?

Yay! 1997 should be a good year for movies. Our local weekly paper had a
review of the Sundance festival and one of the few positive reviews was
of this film. They said it was "weird even by Lynch's standards" which
should be very promising indeed. (Is "Eraserhead" available on video
these days? More required viewing!)

Incidentally, I recently saw a bunch of Jan Svankmejer films. (He's a
Czech animator who is a huge influence on the Brothers Quay (of HNIA
video fame) who even named one of their shorts "The Cabinet Of Jan
Svankmejer".) Several short animations, plus the full-length "Alice"
which is a very weird but largely faithful adaptation of "Alice In
Wonderland". A really wonderful film that combines live action and
stop-motion in interesting ways. Any Bros. Quay fans should hunt down
anything they can find by Svankmejer; they will _not_ be disappointed...

the extra tracks on the pink version were 'smile' and 'tranquil eye', both

I concur. For those interested, the Svankmajer shorts can be found on
a tape entitled "Alchemist Of The Surreal." I would also reccommend
his most recent feature "Faust," which is a bewildering and comical
film with his standard undercurrent of menace. Both of these and
"Alice" can be easily and inexpensively purchased from Facets mail
order (only the most complete video sales and rental catalog comp.
known to man). If anyone wants their phone number, mail me!

Wow...so this must be the promo CD that was issued in tandem with the box
set?  That's a pretty spiffy collection of songs!  I used to make CT
sampler tapes for friends, all very anally-arranged in chronological
order, with one song from every EP or single (plus "Millimillenary", of
course) and three or four from every album.  And since most of their
songs are so short, you can fit like three dozen onto a C90.  Of course,
I think it always worked against me...they'd hear the _Garlands_ stuff
first, and then go "ugh" and turn it off.  :G)

Um...so, uh, anyway...I wasn't able to get my hands on both of the
"Violaine" singles.  I don't remember which one it was, but it was green,
and had "Circling Girl" and "Alice" on it.  What were the tracks on the
other version?

>disgraceful!!, i refuse to buy a 4ad product ever again.

Dear God, are you late. I am suprised that this list is still up. Most
people that matter jumped ship of 4ad long ago. The fact of the matter is
4ad has produced nothing but shite in the 90s.

Got tickets, just saw it... 'weird' isn't the right word but I can't think
of another one yet. I waited a long time for something new by mr. Lynch,
but this two hour production was worth waiting for! One of the best movies
of this year... and a 4AD connection! He used This Mortal Coil's 'Song To
The Siren' *three* times in this movie (two times during strange slowmotion
xxx scenes). The opening track is done by David Bowie and his pal Angelo
Badalamenti did the rest. Call your local cinema now.



>Greenaway is amazing.

Greenaway was a guest at the festival this week and did a lecture and a
talkshow where he talked about his new eight hour
cinema-television-cdrom-internet project 'Tulse Luper's Suitcase', released
later this year. I'm looking forward to that one...
