Subject: Spectropop NY party!

Calling all NYC Spectropoppers:

Hey everyone! I've noticed a lot of recent posts asking about 
a Spectropop party in NY. I've been in contact with some 
Spectropoppers involved in the London party who said they are 
uncertain if any US members are organizing a NY party.

If this is the case, I would love to help organize this party! 
I've had quite a bit of experience putting together specialty 
music nights (specifically Japanese pop music nights), and I 
have many ideas for the Spectropop party. Perhaps we can get a 
small group together of those interested in working on the party 
to discuss ideas and decide on an official date?

If there is someone out there who already has this party in the 
works, then please disregard this message. But if not - I am up 
for the job!

THANKS,
Sheila

In fact, this gig was announced on the list, but I'm not sure you were a subscriber at that point. Sometime ago, I put BF and a musician fan of his in touch with each other by email. They subsequently met and Brute was invited to play the gig you're referring to. I think it was the first time he'd played with a group in a very long time and, from what I gather, it was a very successful ] collaboration.

Perhaps this explains the difference > between the PPL and the PRS? Anybody know about these things? Terry Jacks, as just the performer on SEASONS IN THE SUN (which, with CATS IN THE CRADLE, would have to satisfy my teenage desire for a depressive world-view until I discovered Leonard Cohen), could have made decent money from record sales, depending on his contract for royalties. This would was probably a set amount per mechanical release (maybe 2 to 5 cents for a single track like SEASONS) or possibly a percentage. But when it came to Master Recording Licensing (for TV, commercial or film use), many labels pay 50% of the license to the performer. For use in a TV show, or a movie, these licenses can run $10,000 to $50,000 a pop for a popular hit song. RCA charged $10,000 for the use of BERMUDA in the 1996 film GRACE OF MY HEART, and my aunts split a $5,000 check. And BERMUDA is a pretty obscure tune (p.s., anyone who wants to run a British dance re-mix of the song to the top of the radio play charts, contact me). I'd bet SEASONS has been used far and wide for this purpose, and could net TERRY a healthy check each time. Whether he could live off that ...?

I downloaded Brute's album on the site and it was a site where they would have bizzare music recordingas from time to time for download. They would change what recordings were available every couple of months or something. As I remember I downloaded some preety strange Serge Gainsborough recordings too, no idea what happened to those but it seemed really interesting. I tried the link you sent but it seems broken at the moment I'll try again later. Maybe it is the one! :) love Freya -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

In fact, this gig was announced on Spectropop... Wow that is so bizzare! That was the only date he played in Birmingham(!!!!) I think that is rather fitting for Brute actually, I guess he was always kind of bizzare and to have a UK tour where he just plays Birmingham seems kind of right somehow! :) > on the list, but I'm not sure you were a subscriber at that My account is web only and I had a time during which things were too crazy for me to check the list sadly. :( > point.

Who were the group that backed him up? The Hummingbird was a huge venue although It might be different by now I've not set foot in the place for a long long time. love Freya -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have both Get Yourself Together and Bitterscene on CD and 7" - Love Bitterscene!! So much so that at the time I sent extra copies to some pals in the US. Can't confirm a different demo, but I'll try to find out. Certainly a group for 'Poppers to look out for in the reduced racks - neat covers too!

Previously: > The site (Freya) describe(s) sounds like the Interstellar Cafe, hosted by > Otis F. Odder: http://www.interstellarcafe.com/audioarchives/ It was, but I closed down www.interstellarcafe.com and moved the content to other places across the web. It's been planned for a bit. Introductions, introductions... Hi everyone. I'm Otis, new to this list and signed on after having it recommended to me by a friend. Looks like I'll be enjoying discussions here after reading a good slab of the archives this evening. Brute and I just opened up http://www.brutesforce.com this week. I previously had him up on the interstellar domain. I'm doing the webmaster stuff for him, which is great to help put the word out about such a talented artist. The Birmingham gig was indeed 'that' Birmingham in the UK. Brute is working with others on editing together a video of the event which will soon be available for sale on his site. At one point early last year, I did have the Confections album online for download for about 2 weeks. But now, Brute has his material for sale on his site, so you can support him by purchasing his work. :) Freya: > I downloaded Brute's album on the site and it was a site where they would > have bizzare music recordingas from time to time for download. They would > change what recordings were available every couple of months or something. That was the interstellar cafe. Actually, I'm no longer doing the rare uploads of stuff on a regular basis. Too time consuming and I don't want to step on any legal lines in regards to clearing material or stepping on toes if reissues are planned. I did however just post up 38 tracks of The DeZurik (Cackle) Sisters yesterday. Rare stuff that may never see the light of day, so it's online to share (but only for a couple of weeks, so grab it quick). Recordings from the 30's and 40's... most from 16" transcription discs. This might be of interest to folks on this group. Many smiles await you when listening to these gals! http://www.thebranflakes.com/fodder/cacklesisters.html > As I remember I downloaded some preety strange Serge Gainsborough recordings > too, no idea what happened to those but it seemed really interesting. Those were from a release called "Gainsbourg Inedits" - 02 disc set. Actually, there are 3 Inedits discs floating around from what I hear. Speaking of Gainsbourg, Sylvie Simmons (of Mojo Magazine) wrote a book (IN ENGLISH) on Serge called "A Fistful Of Gitanes". It was published last year. Highly recommended if you can track it down.

"Bitterscene" is the next great track on the album, followed by "Spoiled Children". I think there might be a 4th great track on there as well but I'm not sure! Most of the other tracks aren't as good but then, they wouldn't be really, it's hard to be brilliant all the time! Actually, I have the cd single of "Spoiled Children", I wonder what's on the b side? I felt kind of mean mentioning it the way I did tho, as there are wonderful songs on the album, it's just that the production is such a let down compared to the original 7 inch. I can't understand why they didn't at least have the original 7 inch mix on there but maybe it didn't fit the production of the rest of the album. It's just the production on that first 7 inch is so outstanding and the album production is so bland in comparison. Everyone I know who has both feels the same. :( I want to establish an internet link with the other universe where they made the whole album that way and they are really popular and you know, "Smile" was the biggest lp of all time etc. ;) [Erm, when I say production, I probably mean the sound engineering, but you probably know what I mean!] love Freya -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Yay, Poppy Family guitar tabs! http://www.canehdian.com/tabs/artists/poppyfamily.html Stephanie will be really happy to see they even have "Which Way You Goin' Billy"! :) Sadly, there's no tabs for "I'll see you there". I was hoping it would help you with your cover, Elizabeth. Although I'm not sure if you play guitar or not! :) love Freya -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
