They also have a 2 CD remix album called "Vertigo". This release > is relatively weak and should be considered "For completists only". too bad the remix of Fear of Flying by third eye foundation is sooooo good..but i would have to agree that the rest of Vertigo is almost shite. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Jul 1998 12:35:52 -0500 From: o_o_o Subject: Re: a rant re:"Selling Out" having been found guilty of the crime of having an opinion, Sillabyss is sentanced to endure lengthy, ranting, rebuttals. (don't you know the only musician any of us can suppose to second guess is Kevin Shields? And that furthermore, musicians almost always reveal their real motives for making music?) ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Jul 1998 12:31:11 PDT From: "Over the ocean" Subject: mojave 3. the second coming ! i don`t remember who it was but a while ago someone wrote that he/she was not impressed with the new material of mojave 3. last week i recieved the who do you love single and the anakin compilation cd wich includes a demo version of to whom should i write, and i must say that i`m neither very impressed. ask me tomorrow is a record that i don`t find words to describe it`s greatness, every song is a jackpot, but none of the new songs are close. I mean there good but not THAT good. Neil`s lyrics are as good as ever but the music i think has no longer got the depth and intensity that the old one`s have. I surely hope that the songs on the record will prove me wrong. /markus ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Jul 1998 14:20:02 -0700 From: fell from the sun Subject: autumns tonight. anyone going? i hope they do that blue skied an' clear thing.. stella ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 29 Jul 1998 00:48:01 +0100 From: "Ricardo Fiel" Subject: Re: SHOE PIE MOJAVE 3 for sale I want one. Can I pay by sending you the money in a sealed envelope? My address is: Ricardo Fiel Rua Professor Narciso Costa, 15 - 2 Esq. 2400 Leiria Portugal Let me know. > I have many mint condition CD copies of the 4AD compilation 'Shoe Pie' for > sale. The CD contains the exclusive STRINGS VERSION of MOJAVE 3's 'MERCY'. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Jul 1998 20:59:26 -0400 From: "Mark Stancombe" Subject: All apologies... > I've been away for a few days and have just come across the outrageous > and incredibly uninformed comments of Sillabyss... I would just like to make a public apology to everyone on this list that I may have accidentally offended with my comments regarding Mojave 3. It was never my intent to inspire such voracious comments and rebuttals. I do not know them personally, nor do I make any claims that I can read minds, I can only see what I see and believe what I believe. I apologise if my comments were offensive in any way as I did not anticipate such harsh replies. Sincerely, Sillabyss.... ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Jul 1998 23:26:14 EDT From: Despair603@AOL.COM Subject: Re: mojave 3. the second coming ! I just heard the new mojave 3 single, (Some Kinda Angel) on the 4ad web page. It was pretty cool, alot different, but not bad. Neils voice does sound quite different, and I have to say I like his old vocal style better, but I guess he enjoys singings like that. Either way I`ll still buy their music. c ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 29 Jul 1998 00:17:22 -0400 From: Andrew McMillan Subject: Mahogany Slowdivers, Follow this link to check out a Real Audio sample of the band "Mahogany" who have been mentioned more than once round here.

I read somewhere that this is the last time Locust are enhancing their live show with projections/visuals. I am very-very curious about Sing-Sing as well, should be an interesting night. Is anybody else from the list going?

I've seen the artwork for the Some Kinda Angel single. Without spoiling the surprise too much... it is very favorable towards Texans. All this talk on the list about Texas and defending Texans, etc... though it was all unbeknownst to Mojave 3, they've gone and given Texas a "nod" (if you will) on the cover of the next single. Interesting coincidence. Also, it says in the news bit on M3 that all the tunes on the next single were written by Neil Halstead... that just ain't true. The music for the b-side "Go Lady Go" was the result of a "jam" (if you will) while rehearsing and the song credit should read Halstead/McCutcheon/Rowe, and I think maybe Forrester. (I'm a total trainspotter, sorry... but give credit where credit is due, I always say). Cheers, CB ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 29 Jul 1998 18:41:51 GMT From: vince@deehan.demon.co.uk (Vince Deehan) Subject: Re: today forever Espsummer@aol.com writes: > I think that the "today forever" ep by ride has to be one > of the most perfect singles from this whole early 90's era(note i didn't use > the shoe word). The flow of the single is absolutely perfect. " I wouldn't say it was the most perfect single from the 90s (I don't like to rank music ) but I agree that it an excellent record and almost certainly RIDE's best EP. Each song is an absolute gem. I only recently rediscovered my cassette of this EP and have been playing it a lot in the car - it's great driving music ! It's been a recent discovery for me that early 90's indie like LUSH and RIDE sound really great while at the wheel . Brings back memories I guess ! ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 29 Jul 1998 18:59:45 -0500 From: travis salisbury Subject: RE: Mahogany > Follow this link to check out a Real Audio sample of the band "Mahogany" > who have been mentioned more than once round here.
