Bas, that is the joys of this label...... so easy to make it amazing.......

Bonjour Pierre! Long time no see. Glad to have you back
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:11am Matt from Springfield:

@FVH: Thanks for that 80s music dreck blog, I'll watch those clips later!

Nat Roe made a great premium, the Reverse Adult Contemporary Redux, "just the hook" of every #1 AC song, backwards from 2011 to the first one in 1961. I learned quite a bit about each decade's dreck from that, including the 80s.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:13am pierre:

yeah i was in the country side for quite a while, without much acess to the internet (which is kind relaxing) thus i couldn't really comment, but i always kept an ear for WFMU, and now that the year is on again, i'm more than ever the "pierre" that you all know. :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:15am listener james from westwood:

how nice to wake up to a dcd block!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:16am Matt from Springfield:

"Pierre is back: now, with even more of the pierre you love!"
Where in the countryside were you? On a vacation?
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:17am Matt from Springfield:

Good morning LJFW!
First time I've seen you outside of the "alternate" streams!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:19am pierre:

@ Matt: i've tried to keep the best of the best (which unfortunately isn't much) :)
It was in Gascony, in a small and sunny place.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:21am Julie:

what is this place?? I'm confused
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:22am listener james from westwood:

hey matt! i duck in here and there on the boards. most of the time before 9 it's work and no internet. but dcd must be acknowledged.

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:24am fred von helsing:

@MvS You might want to have a bottle of Jack at your side, to muster the mental wherewithal to resist the horror. Most of the clips I couldn't play more than 10 seconds. Truly a vile decade for music. I myself found refuge in Siouxsie.

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:26am Matt from Springfield:

I agree too james! Thanks for coming to the Dead-Can-Danceathon!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:26am pierre:

Exactly Matt, actually his home village is 7km from my house there, and his castle (D'Artagnan's name is Charles de Batz) is owned by a very wealthy man. And Armagnac is soo good.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:27am Matt from Springfield:

  Thu. 8/30/12 6:43am Matt from Springfield:

LOVE all the album covers! Seeming like a Brian Turner/Tom Lax teamup episode here!

Sad that Betsy Nichols has left the area, she was always extremely thorough in posting pics of album covers and the performers for each song.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:47am Matt from Springfield:

Swallow, this is amazing!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:49am Julie:

I just found out Swallow had put out an album of unreleased stuff a few years back. They only had this album, an album of remixes from it and one ep.

starlust is as chilling as it is euphoric..??
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:55am Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: I think that's a good description. Lush can be sweet and ethereal but other songs also have that cold edge along with the ethereal.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:57am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

According to Wikipedia Miki was in "You Only Live Twice." I'll look for a photo.
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:58am Matt from Springfield:

"Song of the Siren", excellent!
  Thu. 8/30/12 6:59am Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, "don't know who those two girls are"! :D
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:01am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

BLERG! My streak of misinformation continues. Miki's mother was in "You Only Live Twice." She was three months pregnant with Miki at the time of filming.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:01am pierre:

It's a great idea to show the jackets, i like the work of Vaughan Oliver
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:02am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

In honor of 4AD shouldn't it be a "programme" instead of a show?

which boston radio station? wfnx, around the late 80s/early 90s, if i have the call letters right?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/30/12 7:15am Meghan:

That is the one James!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:15am Matt from Springfield:

An old WHFS tape from c. Feb '84 that I have, had the Cocteau Twins "The Tinderbox of a Heart" on it--that was the first time I heard of them. It was 10 pm or later at night, but yeah, they got some very alt-radio play in the day.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:15am listener james from westwood:

one place you could hear the cocteau twins & other 4ad artists played back in the day was the archetypus cafe in edgewater, nj. in the late 80s it was called club enigma. weird, sculpted interior and gothy wait staff. still there, in far better surroundings.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:16am Matt from Springfield:

Agree, woj!
This is a pretty one. BBK is actually '88, I thought it was more 90s by the sound and feel of "Carolyn's Fingers".
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:17am listener james from westwood:

loved fnx. i went to boston college 87-91. first station on which i ever heard nine inch nails. it was a seismic shift for me. (wfmu was another, but that i didn't hear until '92.)
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:17am Matt from Springfield:

"Road, River and Rail"--sounds like a good name for an early 20th century transport company.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:19am René:

"road, river and rail" is only topped by "cherry coloured funk", no?
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:19am Dave B:

OK maybe not free, but fun for noodling on, and WAY cheaper than the real thing...

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:21am Dave B:

and maybe its just me - but I've always felt there's a certain "christmas-y" feel/sound/jangle to Cocteau Twins. Maybe its the cadence of the tune...
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:21am Marmalade Kitty:

enjoying this 4AD fest!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:21am Julie:

They did a couple great xmas tunes, Dave
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:21am Matt from Springfield:

When I found out a "musette" was a shoulder bag like a military "rucksack", it gave some perspective to "Musette and Drums"--kind of a constrained, militarist feel to it.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:23am Matt from Springfield:

@Dave B: VICTORIALAND! AMAZING winter-y album from the CTs.
And yep, wonderful versions of "Frosty the Snowman" and "Winter Wonderland" done in their style, sung by Liz Fraser.

@Kitty: 4 AD 4 EVAH!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:24am Julie:

Interesting CT gallery http://www.ericr.nl/cocteaus/gallery.html
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:25am Matt from Springfield:

"Pearly Dewdrops Drops"!

Oooh, thanks Julie! They always had psyche-delicate album covers.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:27am listener james from westwood:

meghan, julie, you captured the pre-internet hand-to-hand/word-of-mouth thrill of discovery of music and other such things perfectly. not that i'm a luddite, but i miss that in a way. it made music more of a shared bond to get it from a person whose tastes you knew and trusted.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:27am Julie:

I was just complaining to Meghan how the Pink Opaque cover is not pink like the Head over Heels cover. Makes my brain hurt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/30/12 7:28am Meghan:

James, then you knew the wonder of Newbury Comics and Mystery Train if you went to school up in Boston
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:30am Matt from Springfield:

TMC/CTs "Song of the Siren" -- an incredible piece of unique beauty.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:30am Sergeus:

Song of the Siren!! thanks Julie

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:32am Julie:

This is Meghan's set :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:32am Matt from Springfield:

"The most prominent recording of "Song to the Siren" is by This Mortal Coil. It was released as a single in September 1983 and spent 3 weeks on the UK Charts where it peaked at #66 on October 23, 1983. More impressive, however, was the sustained demand for the track, the record-buying public helping the single to spend 101 weeks on the UK Indie Charts"

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:33am avant reguard:

this song is dangerous in that its the perfect tragic suicide track. its so beautiful as is the original. there both mind blowingly sad. xx
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:33am Sometimes Jasmine:

That was, uh, devastating... you know, in the good way, innit.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:34am Matt from Springfield:

@Dave B: Coincidentally (or not??), Patton also used TMC's album "It'll End In Tears" as the setup in a joke about KFC's bowls!
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:34am listener james from westwood:

thanks, dave! it's not like i don't ever visit an mp3 blog or the like, i just miss the sort of intimate passing-along aspect a new discovery represents. actually turned someone at work on to dcd like that. she bought tix to their next concert in about '93 as a result. (and yes, fraser was wearing a white gown for the performance.)
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:35am Matt from Springfield:

"If July" is likewise very lovely. That guitar rhythm, or maybe style of picking, reminds me a lot of a Vashti Bunyan song.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:36am woj:

those first few his name is alive records were really remarkable...
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:36am Matt from Springfield:

"Stop right there! Can you pile all of those items into a single bowl and just kinda make them into a wet mound of starch that I can eat with a spoon like I'm a death-row prisoner on suicide watch? … Is there a way that the bowl can play This Mortal Coil's It'll End in Tears album while I'm eating it at 2:00 in the morning in my darkened apartment, just kind of staring into the distance? … If you could put my lunch in a blender and liquefy it and put it into a caulking gun and then inject it right into my femoral artery, even better. But until you invent the lunch gun, I would like a failure pile in a sadness bowl." —Patton Oswalt
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:37am woj:

which is not to say that the later ones weren't. they were just different.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:38am woj:

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:39am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:40am Dave B:

@James in Westwood - I agree. I used to discover stuff thru label and producer associations. Kind of a "six degrees" method.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:41am Matt from Springfield:

  Thu. 8/30/12 7:42am Matt from Springfield:

CTs have songs for all seasons, depending on which album and era. Victorialand is a "happy" winter album, Garlands is the "dark, brooding" winter album. Their later dreampop works for spring and summer.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:43am woj:

"carolyn's fingers" is definitely a winter song for me...but then i was in northern new york in a snowstorm when i first really heard that song so i have an excuse.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:43am Dave B:

If I recall correctly MTV refused to play a Cocteau Twins video unless they subtitled it. Or something like that. Can't recall the tune at the moment.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:43am Marmalade Kitty:

double ditto with the autumn vibe, meghan!! :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:44am Matt from Springfield:

Autumn/Fall albums are generally a sort of reflective sound. The Beatles' "Rubber Soul" is a very autumn album to me, I know it was recorded during the autumn but the season may have influenced the songs, their tone seems to express an autumnness.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:52am Marmalade Kitty:

Just discovered a didgeridoo band called, Wild Marmalade :D
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:52am BadGuyZero (Dallas, TX):

I don't know if it's still in place, buy there was some sort of legislation in Japan that all albums had to contain printed lyrics. Fudge Tunnel's liner notes would state that "this album contains no lyrics" (though they obviously did if you listened).
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:52am woj:

the world needs more kendra smith and more kirsty yates. or maybe that's just me.
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:55am Matt from Springfield:

You gotta admit that's pretty wild, Marmalade! :)
  Thu. 8/30/12 7:56am Dave B:

Meghan - that chinese instrument you spoke of... was is hammered like a dulcimer? or plucked like a zheng?

@van, were you on 4ad-l?

@all, it's kind of remarkable how varied and relevant the 4ad label has managed to be through the years...even in their less personally intersting phases.

I remember 4ad-l fondly!
  Thu. 8/30/12 8:56am Julie:
