Thanks for posting the info - I'm listening to the sound clips right now! This is really spacey etheral stuff. I just can't imagine them being included on a punk compilation CD (as some reviewer entitled the "Cooking by Strobelight" (KVRX) comp.) Definitely the "right" sound for my taste buds! How about finding X-Ray on the net? Can they handle foreign orders? //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 16:43:43 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: mojave 3 > someone asked about Mojave 3 covers: > > interviewing them for my zine, Rachel told me that they were covering >"queen jane"of bob Dylan and "trough my sails" of Neil Young. I am a complete non-Dylan type-o-person, so I had no idea "Queen Jane" was a Dylan song. Other than those, "Oh, Sister" is a Dylan cover as well.

If someone on the list asks Ryko and gets some information - please post it to the list. If this box really is going to be released, we'll all have everything with Slowdive except for the never recorded songs - which are three / four ones. And that hardly calls for a compilation CD to be made. Then the Mp3 format is probably the best way to go. //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 17:03:25 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: stingyness and Rachel on this list At 03:12 1998-01-17 -0800, JJ Moreno wrote: >>> Yeah, but who has all this stuff in the first place. >> >> I have this stuff. > > So you have the pigmalion, souvlaki demos which I was referring to? ;) As far as I know, no demos from these albums are in circulation, though they are probably resting on a shelf in a studio somewhere. >> The reason she and the band got mad the last time was because the >> guy making the compilation CDs were selling them to make money off of >> their work, their souls, their sweat and tears.

Yeah - this is a "fan base" thing with no profit involved at all. Though I believe Creation still own the rights to their material, and the band is in no position to say "sure, go ahead" or not. And to ask mr McGee is just a dead end. "Bring cash or another Oasis and we'll talk". Sad but probably very true. //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 10:34:25 -0600 From: travis salisbury Subject: RE: 7%solution > this is the 7%solution web page: > www.organizedmedia.com/seven/percent.html > > tenebre@pronet.it Actually, the official site is: www.tddc.net/airstream/seven/percent.html tsalisbury@usa.net ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 10:46:39 -0600 From: travis salisbury Subject: RE: 7%solution this is the 7%solution web page: www.organizedmedia.com/seven/percent.html Sorry, this is where the official site moved. tsalisbury@usa.net ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 12:15:01 EST From: Flwr2hide Subject: Re: mojave 3 dylan and young are wonderful ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 10:36:23 -0800 (PST) From: BILNER Subject: digest?

The Autumns are fantastic, big Slowdive influence, and some Cocteau Twins, MBV, and a little Verve maybe. Not really vocally though, but he's got a great voice. I recommend both the ep and their album. I had a chance to see them here in Detroit last year. I think Myself and three friends were the only one's there to see them. (they played at a lounge/danceclub-type place, strange venue for a band like them) Anyway, they were just as or even better live. They pulled off every sound from the album, which includes (pay attention fellow guitar players) some amazing Slowdive-and-beyond guitar AND bass sounds. I did get a chance to talk ith the bass player after the show, I asked him about influences and guess who he mentioned first...Slowdive. It'll be exciting to see what these guys put out in the future. adios, Justin ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 23:17:36 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: The Autumns (was: Re: avalyn-d Digest V98 #6) > Yes Steve!

I checked out the web (as usual) and found a bunch of reviews (all mentioning MBV, Slowdive and Cocteau Twins) and that they have two official homepages (both made by their management, one slightly old and one newer) - but none had any sound clips. :-( Anyone know of a site/page that does? Here are the two homepages (if anyone's interested): The older one: http://members.aol.com/sbmuzic/autumns/index.html The newer one: http://apu.edu/~jmassie/sb/autumns/index.html //Erik ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 18 Jan 1998 15:38:10 -0800 From: spaceagebachelorpad@usa.net (JJ Moreno) Subject: Re: Slowbox > In case anyone was wondering...I got my facts from a guy who used to > work at Ryko... Well, Rykodisc does have a website at http://www.rykodisc.com and e-mail info at info@rykodisc.com I assume it's the same label? ryko and rykodisc? Don't see anything about slowdive but I did see something that says: "world's first cd-only label" which makes a multimedia release unlikely I suppose. Perhaps if they hear about enough interest in a slowdive rarities comp they might take up the idea if they haven't already. ------------------------------ End of Avalyn Digest Vol.98 #7 ********************************
