    Yeah, they should get back into drugs . Who cares if they destroy their lives? At least Davis will find the music enjoyable.

        when to say 'when'....
        - mercury rev started out sounding like an inspired mix of butthole
        surfers / dinosaur jnr / mbv and now sound like what rem probably
        think they sound like only worse and real.
        does anyone know what mr shady is doing with himself these days (last
        time i saw mercury rev he got into a rather hilarious drunken fight
        with a guy i was sharing a house with...)

                davis!
                personally the whole rev being a bit dull thing to me is just part of
                a wider post-rock dullness malaise (apart from the boredoms and
                selected acid mothers bits) - rock seems to have as much in common
                with fashion as it does with classical / jazz / folk - the spurious
                quest for novelty for its own sake. The Strokes album is easily the
                strongest 'rock' album of the last year despite the fact that it
                sounds just like Television (why is originality such a big deal in
                the age of mechanical reproduction?)- though i bought stuff by Jackie-
                O and the No-Necks i can't help feeling that it's somewhat joyless
                nurdley rubbish - emerson lake and palmer without the money / pomp-
                vague? to like post-rock is to buy into a myth and i'd rather be
                entertained myth or no myth.

                a lot of post-rock bands seem to wear the badge of 'improvisation' as
                if this was some sort of seal of quality in itself - what they forget
                is that spontanaeity is part of any truly creative act (see cocteau
                or wagner for similar viewpoint)whether written on a page or blown
                straight out of a saxophone. aside from this they all seem to be
                slightly overweight and bald.

                on a final note - brainfuck fans should check out the last hour of
                wagner's 'tristan and isolde' for a totally unexpected and completely
                devastatingly fucking fantastic direct to the motherlode experience -
                oh and the wire was right a couple of issues ago about shirley
                collins (who'd have though folk could be so untweediddly?)

                    You're probably thinking of "Choere & Soli" (Choirs and Solos), which
                    Toedliche Doris released in 1983, but that was something completely
                    different: 8 "miniphon records" (a bit like these things you had to put
                    in the back of talking dolls) featuring garbled a cappellas of
                    childrens' songs, plus a battery-driven playing device (because the
                    records couldn't be played on a record player) and a book. The device
                    played only one record at a time, however, not several simultaneously.
                    I think about 1,000 were released by the Pure Freude label of
                    Dusseldorf (which was linked to Der Plan, those other German New Wave
                    pranksters).

                    There's a picture of it on the Doris website (www.die-toedliche-
                    doris.de) which also has MP3 soundfiles of all their recordings,
                    including a live performance of Choere & Soli, where a chattering and
                    unimpressed audience drowns out the actual play backs.

                    Cheers,

                      ...which is something much more toothsome than you would see in most any
                      American music magazine. True, he's going out on a limb but a good editor
                      and a good writer has the courage of their convictions to do this sometimes
                      rather than simply praise or damn each new release.

                      I know I'm in the minority but I happen to agree with Rob on this point, by
                      the way. I think the ideas behind the experiments that the Lips execute
                      (the 4-CD set, the boombox symphonies) are much more interesting and

                        you appear to be new to the list, mr. toast. the
                        aforementioned friend-of-the-list mightily commands
                        the wit of a limp fork. most folks have put him on
                        the email block list. why, you ask? well, b/c it is
                        painfully sad to habitually read his cries for help.

                        post-rock dull malaise, eh? actually, i've just dug
                        out all those swell post-rock albums from the early
                        90s, and begun listening again. after 10 years of
                        dust, they still don't sound that bad.

                        polvo, pavement, windsor for the derby, tortoise,
                        ganger, fridge, etc., etc. this stuff still sounds
                        good after 10 years. rob young's mileage may vary.
                        actually, the new windsor for the derby is quite good.

                        the strokes..man,what the fuck is that? i think i
                        heard the strokes on tv once? you say that is a
                        strong rock album? why is it that all the bands i see
                        on mainstream tv and radio sound like the jon spencer
                        blues explosion and similar cohorts? rewind ten years
                        ago: why is it all the indie bands sound like garage
                        bands of the 60s? mtv should fling out copies of
                        crypt's back from the grave series and pebbles comps
                        to these kids. on a similar note, why is it that jon
                        spencer decayed into total crap - bell bottom irony?
                        isn't there some other spotlight icon called the white
                        stripes or something or other? from detroit, even? i
                        used to live in detroit..we had a good handful of
                        garage rock winners - bantam rooster, gories,
                        demolition doll rods, dirt bombs, etc. jesus, it's
                        like the world caught up to garage rock revival bands.
                        too bad the good ones aren't getting a deserved
                        paycheck.

                        no-neck blues band is joyless nurdley rubbish? what
                        the hell does nurdley mean?

                        ha! i can name one such culprit - anyone remember an
                        album by some jokers called storm and stress on drag
                        city 50 million years ago? what a crock of shit that
                        was..but it got rave reviews -- "they are really
                        encroaching on new territory", 'they' espoused. Give
                        me Derek Bailey's worst plonking. i don't think those
                        guys were bald, though.

                        grady, i feel bad for you. if you want public
                        humiliation, why not just paint yourself naked green
                        and go stand in the middle of a NASCAR race?
                        follow-ups to alt.flame if you want to continue this
                        (i'm game). don't bore the people here, though.

                          was uh jumpin' n'bitin' at that there bait like crazy. Yippee. Also,
                          Davis if'n you wants to know what "nurdley" means, just have a look
                          see in your mirror.

                            Olias Nil of the recently defunct The Fire Show wrote a nice tribute to
                            seven artists who deserved a bigger audience than they had -- The Velvet
                            Underground, The Fall, Robert Wyatt, Public Image Ltd., Arto Lindsay (DNA,
                            Ambitious Lovers & solo), The Birthday Party and This Heat.

                            http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/watw/02-06/fire-show.shtml

                            What should we add to that list?

                            Mine:
                            Captain Beefheart: Often misunderstood with Trout Mask Replica as a Zappa
                            protege delving in weirdness for weirdness' sake, on parts of Lick My
                            Decals, Clear Spot, Shiny Beast, Doc At The Radar Station and Ice Cream For
                            Crow Beefheart was actually as lucid, sharp, terse and powerful as anything
                            in post-punk's oeuvre.

                            Sun Ra: Wrongly written off as a loony by many jazz fans, Sun Ra mastered
                            big band jazz in the 50s and went on to be a pioneer in avant-garde jazz,
                            was a mentor to John Gilmore who was just as good as players like Archie
                            Shepp and Ornette Coleman, and a body of work larger than Duke Ellington
                            and Miles Davis combined.

                            James Blood Ulmer: A protégé of Ornette Coleman, hugely influenced by Jimi
                            Hendrix, his unique mix of jazz, blues, rock and avant-garde was hard to
                            pigeonhole, and he never fully got the acclaim he deserved. Even
                            Beefheart's later albums had more influence among the post-punk crowd than
                            Ulmer's Tales Of Captain Black (1978), Are You Glad To Be In America?
                            (1980), Free Lancing (1981), Black Rock (1982), Odyssey (1983).

                            Fela Kuti: Often maligned by critics for his somewhat rudimentary horn
                            playing, and James Brown influence, Fela deserved far more respect than
                            that. Inventing Afro-Beat is nothing to sneeze at, he was a dynamo
                            performer and band leader, and was regularly beaten and jailed for his
                            outspoken politics. Who's willing to go through that for their art these days?

                            Tom Zé: Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil founded Tropicália and were jailed
                            and deported by the corrupt Brazilian dictatorship. But along with Os
                            Mutantes, Zé gave the Tropicálistas their wildly anarchic, creative
                            edge. The classically trained trickster was presumed missing/in hiding in
                            the 70s, but actually he made four of his most brilliant albums -- Se O
                            Caso É Chorar (1972), Todos os Olhos (1973), Estudando o Samba (1975), and
                            Correio da Estação do Brás (1978). It wasn't until David Byrne reissued a
                            compilation in 1989 that more than a handful of people heard of him.

                            Roy Harper: A former folkie who was pals with Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin
                            (who paid tribute to him on "Hats Off To Harper" on III), he put out a
                            string of stunning albums that were unknown to the mainstream audiences of
                            both bands, and is just now are starting to show influences on people like
                            Jim O'Rourke. On Stormcock ('71), "The Same Old Rock" features some hot
                            guitar playing by Jimmy Page (playing under the pseudonym S. Flavius
                            Mercurius). Lifemask ('73), Valentine ('74) and HQ ('75) are increasingly
                            adventurous.

                            Peter Hammill: Like Robert Wyatt, Robert Fripp and Fred Frith, Hammill is a
                            prog player (Van Der Graaf Generator) who transcended the genre in his solo
                            albums: Nadir's Big Chance ('74), Over ('75), and The Future Now ('78) are
                            dark, intense albums. John Lydon cited him as an influence along with Can
                            and Beefheart.

                                Andy Roberts - "Nina and the Dream Tree" was an amazing album.

                                The Residents - OK, may have a reasonably sized cult following, but still
                                mainly unknown.

                                Gene Clark - "No Other" was the classic Americana album - before the genre
                                was born.

                                Wire - Seem to have recently been the band to name check. But no-one
                                mentioned them much in the late 79s and early 80s.

                                  I don't know how "large" Beefheart's following is. Sure, a lot of people know about him and may have heard something from Trout Mask. But how many people do you actually know who own his albums? I can count them on one hand.
                                  Gene Clark and Residents are good ones. I just got the reissued White Light (1971) which is good but not amazing. No Other really needs to be reissued -- I haven't heard it. I'm giong to trade for a CDR with someone soon -- it must have been dubbed from vinyl.
                                  Having been into post-punk for a long time, it seems that every other band is compared to them in some way, which goes to show how they were really quite well known.

                                  ... know about him and may have heard something from Trout Mask. But how many people do you actually know who own his albums? I can count them on one hand.

                                    Well, me anyway..... I went to his shows in the UK in the 70s and they
                                    were always sold out. But, of course, I suppose it's all relative.

                                    There were other bands from the US that seemed to be a lot less recognised
                                    than they should have been: Spirit, Steve Miller Band and later, Giant
                                    Sand.

                                    is compared to them (Wire) in some way, which goes to show how they were
                                    really quite well known.

                                    On the other hand, Wire gigs were pretty poorly attended during the period
                                    of their first couple of albums.

                                    Oh, and how about John Martyn, Michael Rother, The Comsat Angels, Viv
                                    Stanshall, The Chameleons, Kevin Ayres, XTC.....
