This week's featured artist is my personal favourite, the Chiffons. The monthy must-have is a best-of Candy and the Kisses, and I've added a new Top 20 list (songs that have been stuck in my head recently). Enjoy! Will : ) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

When I read this something clicked in my copy has the same number but is credited to Marsha Brody and Milton Delugg . Such is the stuff of which legends are made. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 7 Date: Mon, 01 Jul 2002 11:34:20 -0400 From: Freeman Carmack Subject: Re: Driving Songs There is an excellent drivin' song by the super-cool LA band, the Masticators. Lisa Mychols captures the adrenaline rush of gettin' ready to go to a club to see a great band; anticipating the drive on a warm Cali night in a convertable. VRRRRR00000MMMMM! I found the track for download at; CD also for sale. Happy 4th everyone, [sorry, our British friends :%) - you're invited to the cookout too ! too bad about Cornwalis, though - just kiddin' gang ! ] Love to all, Freeman Carmack PS - can't wait for her solo CD , 60s covers, including the TREMENDOUS song by Leslie Gore; something about warm California nights! PSS - I'm still feelin' groovy about Brasil's win over Germany; 2:0.A "classico".There were no "losers" anywhere to be found in either match over the weekend.Germany kept it close for the full 90 minutes, AND,an extra treat, on Saturday, a third place game to re-establish the balance of the cosmos; Korea v Turkey.! All heroes; the teams AND the crowd.I have never seen a more positive energy emitted from crowds at international football matches; truly inspiring.Even with the early exit of powerhouses like France(!),Italy, Argentina and Portugal(I'm sure the same will not be the case in Germany '06), it was an exciting final(s),showcasing the best players and teams. To tie this all together, the samba style of "jogo bonito" reminds me of the sensuous style of Jobim, Gilberto, and/or the "tropicalisto" style of Gil and Nascimento, OR the dadaistic wonder of Os Mutantes(imagine if say,Boettcher and the Association had taken lots of mescaline and then listened to hours of Tom Ze and chora music before stepping into the studio on the beach in Rio - merely an approximation). That music,which has had no small effect on the music that we love, is a gift from the Creator. Blessings to all..... -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Mon, 01 Jul 2002 16:01:33 -0000 From: Will Stos Subject: The Cake Most Spectropoppers will know this group's excellent version of "Baby That's Me," but I wonder what else you know. I just heard the Cake's version of "You Can Have Him" and saw their performance on (the Johnny Carson Show?) and I really enjoyed it. I know they released two albums, but have they been released on CD yet? When I do an Internet search for "the Cake" I end up with baking or the modern group of the same name. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Will : ) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Mon, 01 Jul 2002 15:37:21 -0400 From: Patrick Rands Subject: Re: The Cake You'll probably get a few responses regarding the Cake some positive and some negative - I personally love them because they did some Girl Group sounds but also some more experimental sounds too which I think are precursors to some of the more gothic sounds of the 70s or 80s... I think truth be told they were not big fans of the Girl Group sound and were forced to record some sides in that vein. There used to be an interview with one of the Cake online which covered the post-Cake doings but I'm not sure if it is still up. One thing that struck me is they followed up the Cake with an a capella singing group which I'm guessing never recorded - but I would love to hear that. One member of the Cake has a reggae-sounding band nowadays. The second lp is called A Slice of Cake, :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It was presaged in the entertainment press a few times but then Crewe Records and its burgeoning subsidiaries dissolved. The Lesley Gore single was called "Back Together" and "Quiet Love". :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
