- Thanks to all that responded to my previous e-mail. I'm enlightened in respect
to getting in touch with Astralwerks re. Lida Husik.
re. The Camden Monarch. I'm often at venues where any thing could be on the
and this venue puts on a range of indie bands/noisniks that may bore you or
give you faith in a magic moment(and thats a personal thing!!!) To the person
who didn't particularly like Rothko(despite seeing them twice) with all due
respect if you have no music taste what are you doing subscribing to the Wires
Bands like Rothko are trying to do something on a limb(Which actually Camden
is famous for.) Without this spirit,(the music may sometimes be weak but the
spirit is willing),we never would have had bands like
Stereolab,Moonshake,Laika etc etc./
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you don't like 'em don't slag 'em
Nice one to the Boston station who sends through their play list(with added
enlightening comments) Thats good stuff. Gives the rest of us who's
money/experiment ratio is low something to try out.
Jeez I'm all out of rant , time to get back to the Talisker...
It's all around
love Jamie xxxxxxx

nouvelle vauge director Francois Truffaut. Aural guitar explorations.......

still got the passion.

praise. Life's too short for boring music! You know, this is a list
based on the Wire magazine. They print bad reviews from time to time!
It's not enough for music to go "out on a limb"; it has to be GOOD, as
well. I'm not going to listen to music just 'cause it's 'different', or
whatever. We all want to listen to GOOD music, don't we? If you want to
draw attention to Rothko it's because you like them; why shouldn't I
warn people off them because I don't like 'em?
I'd always associated Camden with 4th-rate derivative guitar bands and
Britpop liggers than any kind of adventurous spirit. And the reason I
saw Rothko twice is because once they were doing a set at an otherwise
wonderful club night, once they were on at an all-dayer, along with
bands I DO like. It's not as if I actively sought them out.
Would anyone else like me to shut up before I start saying I don't
particularly care for Laika, Moonshake, Mogwai, Labradford......?
And yes, I DO have taste; impeccable taste, in fact! I was joking.
- That's what I like to see .. a shouty man
Just wanted to get up a storm
Sorry , I probably can't deal with the negativity of the music 'biz' at the
Long live The Three Suns...

- Firstly, I would like to ask if anyone has heard Keiji Haino's
collaboration with Barre Phillips and is it worth getting and also whether
Mort Aux Vaches by Merzbow is also any good
Does anybody know what the music is at the beggining of each of Francois
Trauffaut's films in BBC2'S Trauffaut season, the nusic playing over the
text on the proceeding film? I'm not usually into this kind of easy
listening stuff but this really got to me, it sounds quite like air. It
would be a great help if anyone told em where to get a hold of it. This is
probably only relevant to those who can get the BBC
