Someone mentoined this disc in the mail I've been catching up on, and it's
definately worth checking out. It's a sequel to "Soon", from last year,
which had Mistle Thrush and Curtain Society. Most of the tracks are on the
thislisty side, and the Eardrum track is a sideproject of Matt from Cranes.
I guess the only sad note about this disc is that the two night live benefit
here in Boston is probably finishing up with Lisa Germano as I write this
(rainy/sad/TMC day here) so I missed a lot of cool bands because I was too
busy lying in bed, reading, and listening to the disc. And I'm not even
going to begin to rave about the packaging...

Easy on the sanctimony! Assumptions and attacks are refreshing. But it's not
hard to make some intelligent conclusions since Mark has after all poured
his entire heart and soul out onto vinyl and then recycled it and done so
a second time. I do think he is genuine though, and he actually does make
himself out to be the miserable whiner Renee seems to think he is. But I
suspect the real reason he is no longer with 4AD is that Ocean Beach was
a hell of a rotten album.

I like it a hell of a lot. Maybe best out of all the RHP albums. Fuck
it if I'm in the minority. To me it's mood sticks better throughout (minus
Red Carpet which I really dislike). I can listen to the whole thing and
enjoy it, with the other releases I can't seem to do the same thing.

Thanks to those who posted the STTS lyrics.
This reminds me :
Do we have any Roy Harper fans who could do likewise for Another Day? I'm
pretty sure the words are on the sleeve of one of his albums.

I haven't been following the list very closely for a while. I just want to
know who is in Scheer? Also, how do I find a list of all the CD's that 4AD
have released in the UK for 1995? Is there an easy way to do this on the
I the info I have asked for hasn't been posed before. Thanks for the info

Went to see Spiritualized last night - aargh, my eyes, my ears! They were
*very* loud and the sound was excellent (I know some people had said their
sound was bad on the tour with Siouxsie and the Hasbeens). They also had
this really elaborate light show, which, although it looked kinda cool,
meant that you didn't really get to *see* the band except as silhouettes
amidst the dry ice. The material covered both albums as well as a few
Spacemen 3 tunes. They seemed to have spent some time altering the
arrangements of a lot of the songs so that it took you a while to recognise
them - they put different intros on a lot of them and ended a couple by
making a big sustained noise and then suddenly going into the next song -
neat, but it seemed as if they were just showing off at times, besides
being an excuse to make a big self-indulgent noise. If you haven't seem them
yet, you're in for a nice surprise. Oh, and they were selling those
Polara opened and were pretty interesting - a good noisy pop group in the
vein of Medicine or maybe even MBV. The singer dances in a funny kind of
way. They were very loud and there was copious feedback and catchy songs as
well. It'll teach me not to judge an album by its cover (I've been tempted
to buy their CD before but was put off by the somewhat dorky cover art).

> Oh, and they were selling those glow-in-the-dark T-shirts.
I have seen the Spiritualized "glow in the dark" CD for $39. Personally I
don't think it's worth that much, but seeing as how it is out of print should
I pick this copy up? (maybe for someone else?)
Second, I know this isn't the ambient list, but could someone tell me which
Aphex Twins CD(S) I should start out with? I don't have any of their stuff,
but I like what I've heard, and I'd like a place to start. You can send it to
me personally if it'll annoy people on the list.

ANOTHER DAY by Roy Harper
>From the album "Flat Baroque And Berserk" (1970 EMI Records Ltd.)
The kettle's on the sun has gone another day
she offers me Tibetan tea on a flower tray
she's at the door she wants to score she dearly needs to say
I loved you a long time ago
where the wind's own forget-me-nots blow
but I just couldn't let myself go
not knowing what on earth there was to know
but I wish that I had
'cos I'm feeling so sad
that I never had one of you children
and across the room inside a tomb
a chance is waxed and wanes
the night is young
why are we so hung up in each other's chains
I must take her I must make her while the dove domains
and feel the juice run as she flies
run my winds under her sighs
as the flames of eternity rise
to lick us with the first-born lash of dawn
o really my dear
I can't see what we fear
sat here with ourselves in between us
and at the door
we can't say more than just another day
and without a sound i turn around
and i walk away

Sorry If I deflate any expectations of those awaiting Lisa Gerrard, but her show
in Boston this past Thursday night was very underwhelming. The opening monologue
by a band member was ridiculous and started the show off flat. Her new material
from the Mirror Pool just doesn't impress live, as all the orchestral music to
support it is sampled or generated on Keyboard.
I would be interested to hear from others who attended the show.

so it is kind of like that "fucked up inside" thingy! i can't wait, i
didn't bother going to the banshees show because i figured they
wouldn't have much time, being the opening band. i'm so looking forward
Oh, and they were selling those
goodie! do you remember how much they were? just so i bring enough
money. sorry to bother you with stupid question such as this.

quite some time ago i sent money to a fanzine called sugarlift to get a copy
of an interview with ian masters. never heard from the zine though. is
anyone affiliated with that zine on this list, perhaps? i don't care so
much 'bout the two bucks, but i'd like to see the interview.
eric, who just had to buy another copy of Souvlaki b/c his had a skip :(
