Has anyone seen the 'Love songs on the radio' > video? Yes! I just turned on the TV one night, and that guy at Alternative Nation (MTV Europe) started to talk about Mojave 3 - so I kind of threw in a tape in the video and managed to get the whole thing recorded! And I agree, it is a beauty. Kind of like an old-time (Capone time) bar flick, I thought. But, like Windblows (Joe) said, that was the _only_ time I've seen it on MTV. To get the list a bit more active, I would suggest a discussion about the 4AD UK's behaviour regarding Mojave 3. I tried to order a copy of AMT through my regular record store, and they said that 4AD UK hadn't said a word about the band (so the normally very well informed guys at the store didn't know they even existed). They tried to order a copy for me, but finally I had to buy it when I was in the US. Has anyone seen or heard anything about Mojave 3 from 4AD UK? Posters? Ads? _Things_? //Erik (chief@lysator.liu.se) P.S. there _are_ 69 active (ie. normal list) subscribers and 27 digest subscribers.. almost 100... we can't _all_ be lurkers, can we?

I've always wondered how neil got some of the guitar sounds. I've come up with some pretty cool ones myself, too. Anyway, with all the texture on slowdive songs, there is probably no way you (or anyone) can recreate the exact sound live. I think the best thing to do would be to figure out the chord structures, and slap on some of yer own effects. Experiment. Also, it's wierd that rachel is connected. Slowdive is one of my all time fave bands, and I never really thought that the band contained people. Their image on their albums just doesn't put forward the idea of members. But now that the list is in direct contact w/ one of the ex members, if seems more like a normal band, like a friend of a friend's band. Am I making sense. It also gives me hope for my own music. later Ben The Sunflower Conspiracy http://cord.iupui.edu/~badrian/sunflower.html ------------------------------ Date: Fri, 5 Apr 1996 18:31:29 -0500 (EST) From: trEmolo Subject: Re: okay...

Ads? _Things_? Well, I've got a really nice promotional poster for Ask Me Tomorrow. It's not a very big one - it's got the CD-cover on it, and a few things about formats etc., just the typical 4AD poster. ------------------------- Date: Sun, 7 Apr 1996 18:25:15 -0400 (EDT) From: trEmolo Subject: Re: okay... okay everyone...i am tre confused... i sent a message to the list with the subject 'okay...' here is that message again (sorry to those of you who would rather not see it again ) more follows after the body: > so, i need tab for mojave3 and slowdive i started to figure out stuff on > souvlaki, but it is very hard to do with all the deep sounds and thick > flange...i think i got when the sun hits!!!!! yessss!! oh well sorry, i > am very influenced by neil's guitar stylings...hopefully i wil get to > meet him at the show... > > okay im off to transcribe more slowdive....oh ace! i thought of > something, how about we all work together and create a compleate slowdive > transcription...its a mighty and formidable task but it is quite possible > as i have learned...any one out there know any or even have the vaguest > of ideas? email me please!! im sure we can help each other... > > velvet eyes are fuzzy, > cheerio > trEmolo@voicenet.com > {it matters where you are} okay, and i was reading my mail today and i read a very disturbing message... and i suppose my question is this : ( many apologies to anyone involved who might not want further involvement ) is someone impersonanting someone else through email? the message i read made no sense to me...it was in reply to my 'okay...' message which said nothing of the sort for that i was quoted (well paraphrased actually) cheerio trEmolo@voicenet.com {it matters where you are} ------------------------- Date: Sun, 7 Apr 1996 18:40:58 -0400 (EDT) From: trEmolo Subject: Re: okay... ignore me...i figured it out cheerio trEmolo@voicenet.com {it matters where you are} ------------------------- Date: Mon, 8 Apr 1996 10:39:44 -0500 (EST) From: fiddlepoke Subject: Re: okay... > daggers first chord is : X_______O_X > 1 -- |_|_|_|_|_| > |_O_|_|_|_| > |_|_|_O_|_| > |_|_O_|_|_| > > some odd B chord (the real name escapes me) B major 7th the b flat on the g string is gonna produce some interesting tonal effects with the open b string.

It could be major or minor, because there's no third. You see what two years of music theory can do to you. Umm, the 4th in the phrygian mode of teh key reflects nicely with the c sharp minor 7th flat 9.:) > i had a band once called dAisy confusion > flowers!!! wheee ben the sunflower conspiracy http://cord.iupui.edu/~bpadrian later ----------------------- Date: Mon, 8 Apr 1996 13:31:33 GMT -5 From: "WILDER GONZALES AGREDA" <932307@CENCO.ULIMA.EDU.PE> Subject: silvania >> Anyway, with all the texture on slowdive songs, there is probably >> no way you (or anyone) can recreate the exact sound live. yes, i agree, ... Have you heard Silvania? They do those guitar sounds on their first phase and inclusive give it sometimes fast movement to all that sound, it was simply beautiful.The influences i see on their early phase -miel nube hiel ep (1992) and en cielo de oceano lp (1993)- is slowdive/cocteau /spacemen3. Really great!! Now they're in ambient! -Paisaje III lp (1995)-. Remember 5ep? Like that but with a lot of more beautiful ambiences, it's all so worked it has lots of nice details, imagine they put on it some nice guitar ala Durutti Column!! And the more incredible is that they can give to ambient the same feelings of sadness, melancholy, beauty and sweet pornography they gave to the shoegazing! Oh, you really must hear all this!!! Take care.

I guess they're a Peruvian band, so their work may never have been released in the UK. Does anyone know if Silvania have ever had material released in Europe or North America?

Anyway: the miel nube hiel EP is on Experience Records and the rest is on Elefant Records, both spanish labels. I know they have already a new ep, Avalovara EP (1996). And I know they participate in 2 ambient samplers with seefeel, locust, etc. But unfortunately i've couldn't listen to any of these new releases. Does someone have more information? Regards. Wilder. ------------------------ Date: Tue, 9 Apr 1996 12:00:34 +0100 (BST) From: "P.D.Howard" Subject: Silvania stockists Hi again folks, Well, rather than do any work I've been busy on Altavista looking for hints on how to get Silvania's albums. The most interesting English language references will follow this message. While I'm no expert on exchange rates it looks like the albums would be no more expensive to acquire for fellow UK readers (and presumably Scandanivians, if the stereotype of everything being expensive over there is true) than if they were in the local record shops. I don't suppose anyone would know how Elefant accept payment? No sense in sending cash if there's an easy alternative... (assuming I get round to buying the things!) All in all Elefant Records seem pretty cool - another Web page informed me that they're planning an album of Field Mice covers.

On Bus Stop. (US, $3.50) Silly Pillows "Strangest of the Strange" - LP PA's pop masterminds finally release a full-length, and it's a great one. Subtle and tuneful pop reminiscent of a more Beach Boys-y C-86 band, with strong power pop overtones. Neat. On Little Teddy. (Germany, $9.00) Silly Pillows "When She Gets Home EP" Personal, low-fi pop from this PA/NY duo. 3 tracks recorded 1988-1992. On Little Teddy. (Germany, $4.00) Silvania Paisaje III - CD Amazing second LP by this Spanish duo expands greatly on their sound, adding bits of Seefeel, Disco Inferno and Bark Psychosis to the mix.

(Spain, $4.50) Sr. Chinarro s/t - CD 13 track debut album by this neat Spanish doom-pop band. A bit less "indie" than their 7", and a bit more anglo, but it still hits plenty of Seam/Bedhead points as well as Slowdive, etc. Includes a New Order cover. On Acuarela. (Spain, $15.00) Stereolab/Cat's Miaow split 7" flexi Two Stereolab tracks and one from Cat's Miaow. You want it. On Wurlitzer Jukebox.

(US, $3.50) Usura "Hake Romana" - LP/CD This Spanish band turns in their debut album, less like Velocity Girl than their first 7" and much more in the Breeders mode (Veruca Salt, anyone?). Good production, crunchy guitars and big hooks make this a treat for fans of the above bands. CD has one bonus track. On Elefant. (Spain, LP is $9.00, CD is $12.00) Usura "Maze" One track from their "Hake Romana" LP and a non-LP track on the flip. On Elefant.

Sounds extra fucked at 33 rpm. Recommended for those late, late nights. On Acuarela.

(Spain, $4.50) Yukio Yung "Art Pop Stupidity" - LP Amazing full-length effort by this ex-Chrysanthemum. 14 brilliant songs that recall Village Green-era Kinks and mid-period Beatles, as well as The Bachelor Pad. Loopy as hell, and the better for it. Only from Little Teddy. (Germany, $9.00) Yukio Yung "Jeff Lynne EP" Bizarre concept, but it actually works: 5 Jeff Lynne/ELO covers. What could be sickening turns out to be nice fuzzed-out power-pop. At least it's a less obvious tribute than the current/upcoming Felt, Young Marble Giants, Love, Fall, etc. smugfests that we're being barraged with. On Little Teddy, a brave label indeed. (Germany, $4.00) various artists Candybars Berserk double-7" comp with 28 very short tracks by 28 bands including Cub, McTells, Bartlebees, Maylove, TV Personalities, Wimp Factor 14 and many more.

(Germany, $3.50) various "Kometen Melodies Vol. 1" Split 7" of wiggy space rock for your bachelor pad by Thumbling and Sabine. We've got a phaser pedal and we're going to use it. On Audrey's Diary.

All packets are by registered mail and air mail. See the table below and check how much you need to add. EuropeAmerica/AfricaWorld 1st 7"+ 220 pts+ 380 pts+ 510 pts For each 7" more+ 35 pts+ 190 pts+ 295 pts 1st LP+ 270 pts+ 810 pts+ 1085 pts For each LP more+ 80 pts+ 530 pts+ 910 pts 1st CD+ 220 pts+ 460 pts+ 606 pts For each CD more + 40 pts+ 200 pts+ 365 pts So, if you are from the USA and you want to order two LP's, two CD's and one single; you must add: 810 + 530 + 220 + 40 + 380 = 1980 pts Of course, it's a bit more expensive if you order different formats (mixing CD's with singles, or LP's with CD's), but it's the only way for sending through air and registered mail. Anyway, if you mix formats and you write on your letter that you've seen Twee and Proud!! on the web, I'm sure that Elefant will give you a 7" or similar as a present. _________________________________________________________________ [LINK] Home.html, sweet home.html This page typed, procesed and htmled by: Israel Sanchez (Arf, arf...) --------------------------- End of The Avalyn Digest #1.05 ******************************
