When doing this sort of thing, unless you have a T1, it's best to just select T1, let it creep along, and then pull it out of your browsers cache to watch it. Also, on the topic of streaming videos, the folks at SonicNet have a new video site at http://www.streamland.com/ I haven't much time to check it out yet, but they have Bowery Electric and Yo La Tengo stuff as well. They also have a page for requests as well. I requested the "Morningrise" video, if a fair number of people go there and request it, they'll probably put it up. brad ----------------------------- Date: Mon, 24 Nov 1997 00:00:57 +0100 From: Erik Soderstrom Subject: Re: Alison video At 15:34 1997-11-23 -0600, Brad Nicholson wrote: >>There are also 3 versions the website offers: one is for 28.8 >>connections, another for 56k I believe, and one for t1/above >>connections.

I just checked out (and dowloaded) the Alison video - requested "Morningrise" there and I went to SonicNet and requested "Morningrise" there as well. ;-) Great tips guys! //Erik ----------------------------- Date: Tue, 25 Nov 1997 20:08:27 +0000 From: Andy McMillan Subject: shameless plug JOSEPH JOHN MORENO wrote: > > Thanks a bunch Andy.

Most of the time, I was too busy trying to anchor everything from flying away into the ether :) I have acquired a four track recently, however, and have been doing some noodling of my own.

Check out www.no-fi.com for details on the list and compilation. As for the Slowdive/MBV list disc, it is being put together by our own Daniel from Claire de Leon Records. Send him some mail to see if they are any slots left: email@example.com hope that helps, Andy ----------------------------- Date: Wed, 26 Nov 1997 14:30:30 +0100 From: "Kurt.Verweire" Subject: Re: Gravity Probe E-zine Sorry Mitch for the delay in reply, but I have been very busy lately and so had hardly time to read my mails. I am Kurt, and member of Sleeve, which is a Belgian shoegaze band in the style of early Verve, Slowdive, Cocteaus, some Curve and MBV... We're still working on some new songs (which are really more in the line of the bands I mentioned) but we need to record them well. We have some contacts with Alex Callier of Hooverphonic, but for the moment it's silent... However we hope that within some months, we're able to record a (new) demo (the old demo is not that representative any more)... I'll let you know.

I was looking through one of the old digests and I found a post about recreating Slowdive's guitar sounds. I woulld be really interested in talking to someone some more about this, so email if you know ANYTHING. Also, does anyone have some Guitar tab/chords for some Slowdive songs, Im just interested in the chord relationships they use, thanks. If anyone can be of any help, please email me soon.
