Here's some Throwing Muses tour dates FYI as of 3/1/95:
I mentioned it before, but here it is again in more detail. American
Recordings signed a licensing deal with Too Pure Records. The first Too Pure
release to arrive via this set-up is Laika's 'Silver Apples Of The Moon' on
March 28. Other titles set to follow include Minxus-'Pabulum'; Stereolab-'And
The Group Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music'; Pram-
'Helium'; Moonshake-'The Sound Your Eyes Can Follow'; Mouse On
Mars-'Vulvaland'; a Faith Healers compilation; and Stereolab-'Peng'.
Regarding Aphex Twin, the single "V.........." (I just forgot the title; it's
been mentioned here on 4AD-L very recently) will be released in the U.S.
around March 17th, and the album "I Care Because You Do" late April, both on
Sire through Elektra (<--yes that is correct). I'll keep you posted on the
sound of it all.

I don't know if I'm allowed to post this here but anyway...
=> Atmospheric, ethereal dreampop band is looking for a female vocalist
with serious attitude and dedication for collaboration on original material.
Currently there are two guitarists, a drummer, a celloist, and bassist.
The members are all currently residing in upper west side, New York City
and we rehearse once (sometimes) twice a week so it is important that
respondents be from the NYC area.
if interested email ASAP: [email protected]

Someone was asking how Pygmalion sounds as compared to the 5ep. Well, they
are sort of worlds apart. The use of samplers for drums/percussion sounds
and guitar/instrument loops still remains but the loops are not as obviously
trancey-housey influenced. It's like they took the the trancey-housey loop
concept, and stripped it down, and put a whole different kind of sound in its
place. Also, for Slowdive, Pygmalion is somwhat dark, sad, and a little
mysterious, as compared to their other bliss-pop work.
It's also very different from their previous LP Souvlaki, which is very band
oriented. Pygmalion is very non-band oriented; except for song 8, there's no
song where there's real drums and bass played along with the guitars (song 1
might seem like it, but its all sampled percussion and cymbals, the bass part
is also actually a synth).
As for my personal opinion on this release, I think that Pygmalion is a very
beautiful, sometimes sad, sometimes blissful, work of art. I don't know how
to rank it against 5ep and Souvlaki, so I won't. I will say is that
Pygmalion is very different from them, and is just as good, and just maybe
better. Regardless, I highly recommend it, especially to those who like
their previous work, seeing the evolution of their sound into such an
original release as this. I have it playing here almost every day and I'm
not in the least bit sick of it. In a strange way, it kinda sorta reminds me
of LSD's 'Ardor', a blend of bliss, beauty, and meloncholy.

Thanks to J. Gayton:
I already signed the petition when it was posted on the misc.writing
newsgroup. I would urge everyone with an interest in the welfare of free
speech in America to do the same.
Think about it.

Today I got in the mail the really nice limited edition version of
Throwing Muses "University" (thanks other Brad!) and it made me
wonder what other recent (or not-so-recent) releases have limited
edition versions. Ones I know of (but don't own) are:
"Hips and Makers" - K.H.
"King" - Belly
Hmm, I guess I don't know of many at all. Does anyone have a definitive
list? (or does eyesore have some easy way of getting a list). Also, if
anyone has or can get copies of these that they would sell, I'd be
interested in hearing from you...

i was going to sign this petiiton, i had received it on another listserv i
subscribe to but then the next day i recieved a post that this was a hoax. i
would believe it a hoax, because i would think if it were true we would have
gotten some media coverage about this, esp. since everyone is into this
'information superhighway' thing. can anyone out there tell us hoax or not?
