NEW - UPTODATE RADIO MUSIC ON LINE

We'd like to communicate to everybody that the Brazilian Music
UpToDate - the Brazilian music magazine on the Net - has been putting
on line a MUSICAL RADIO PROGRAMM, yet in a experimental phase,
called UPTODATE RADIO MUSIC.

Transmitted on REALAUDIO, the Radio Programm will be on line
on every tuesday with a selection of 10 Brazilian musics, reaching all
genre of music as possible. Showing a Brazilian music pallete. The
weekly TOP 10 will follow the UpToDate's editorial discretion, what
we really think is worth selecting. That first experimental transmission
deal only with 5 songs just for technical adjustment.

From now on, we will present the definitive format with the TOP
10 songs followed by an oppening introduction and a quick comment
(english/portuguese) about each selected music. The listeners-users will
also VOTE FOR THEIR FAVOURITE music to, on the next week, get
to know the CHAMPION OF THE WEEK. Don't miss that,
LISTEN TO AND ENJOY THAT.

Thank you very much,

UpToDate team.

CDC IS NEW FALLEN SNOW ON A BLEAK DESERT LANDSCAPE

cDc communications is tittering with joy on the birth of this shiny new year
to make two announcements.  We are the proud parents of ten bouncing new
articles in the continuing saga of the CULT OF THE DEAD COW publication.
These feisty little rugrats will put a smile on the face and a Brussels
sprout in the stomach with their hearty blend of entertainment and
information.  We also can now make public our "Good Times" virus hoax.

The Good Times meme was launched by cDc to prove the gullibility of
self-proclaimed "experts" on the Internet.

Any chickenhead would see through the Good Times virus message as the merest
wisp of smoke that it is, while the so-called experts ran around in circles,
beside themselves in self-induced panic.

Therefore, CULT OF THE DEAD COW claims FULL responsibility for the waves of
nausea and unrest that have spread from AOL to CompuServe to Prodigy by the
actions of egotistical 'experts' who roam the Information Superhighway like
squeegee men, seeking to wring a buck or two from the poor souls they
confront at every intersection and stoplight on the infobahn.

We have far worse to unleash upon you, should you insist upon pontificating
and spreading obvious falsehoods.

Heed well the motto of the Hell's Angels: "Those who know, don't tell.  Those
who tell, don't know."

We'd also like to take this opportunity to quell a nasty rumor: cDc has NOT
been bought-out over the past few months to ANYONE.  cDc, as always is 100%
independently owned and operated and has no outside sponsors.  Viacom and
Ziff-Davis, puh-leeze.

Coming soon: cDc presents AUDIO on the Internet via Tarkin Darklighter's
Shockwave site.  New releases from Weasel-MX, Gravelheaver, Tha Gates,
Superior Products, Grey Man, and Crucified Goat are on the way.
Also, The cDc Media List version 3 from Omega... something fresh for the
spring '97 fashion season.

321:"Nineteen Seventy-Seven" by OXblood Ruffin.  It was a good year...
     Star Wars, The Sex Pistols, the Apple II, and the Death of Elvis.
     And you thought they weren't connected?

322:"Pariah '67" by Matt Brown.  It's like _The Wonder Years_ with real
     blood.  Like Diet Coke with real sugar.  Who would've thought Paul would
     grow up to drum for Marilyn Manson?  Gosh.

323:"CYBERsitter" by Peacefire.  Overprotective parents are being led down
     the primrose path to potential pathos.  This is an important press
     release from the Peacefire organization concerning their efforts against
     the makers of the CYBERsitter Internet filtering software.

324:"Painted Stranger" by Weasel Boy.  Creepy-as-hell goth fiction.  People
     with monochromatic wardrobes and Victorian affectations, incest, tragic
     young death, The Beast.  You know the drill.  Hup hup!

325:"Zen of Skateboarding, Part 3: Flowing Stream" by Thoai Tran.  Skate and
     destroy.  Death to false skating.  The search for beauty and truth
     continues.

326:"The Great Southern Fire God" by John Crow.  Everything would be great
     if it weren't for those DAMN YANKEES (nevermind The Nuge, this is
     _serious bidness_).  Will the assembly please rise and join with me in
     singing "Sweet Home Alabama."

327:"Vulnerabilities in the S/KEY One-Time Password System" by Mudge.
     All that and a bucket of chicken wings.

328:"Pantslessness" by Mark Buda.  I don't know about you, but every time I
     go outside without pants, the squirrels poke at my BARE-NAKED POSTERIOR
     with twigs.  They ain't got covered rumps neither.  Freaks!

329:"Quadro-Pounder" by Drunkfux.  He wants lots of meat.  Huh-huh.

330:"Happyland Cell Block 90210" by G. Allen Perry.
    "Where am I?"
    "You're in a cheap run-down teenage jail, that's where."
    "Oh my God!"                                            -The Runaways

                            Reading is FUNdamental!

ACUMEN NATION

APRIL 26  @ Mabel's    Champaign, IL (w/ Stir)

also - Jason was just alterted to the existence of an Acumen (Nation)
chat room on AOL.  He said this is where to find it, if you want to check
it out:

keyword: MMC, folder: Alternative, subfolder: general

if that's not right, sorry, we haven't seen it ourselves & aren't too
familiar with everything on AOL.

Jason also *thinks* that they will be back online within a week, so keep
your fingers crossed.

Glenys Rogers:  s/t

GR makes cool groovin' kickin' back style music with a strong esoteric
african rhythmic pulse.  Glenys is multi-talented, along with her strong
vocal lines and deep-felt lyrics, she has mastered the congas, udu, cabasa,
bongos, bass, organ and drum sequencing.  The flavor of the music
runs from modern blues to urban to soul. This 4 song demo is professionally
made with a nice cover, j-card and lyric sheet...perfect for a market
tasting first indie.  Do expect more from Glenys Rogers, talent like
this doesn't go unnoticed....Soul Unconditional and A Little Piece are
sure fire hits!!   Contact UGR for more info 213-871-8054 ext. 558


Hyperdex-1-Sect:  Metachrome

SPV Records out of Germany never fails to deliver great electronic music.
This eight song CD features four original numbers from Hyperdex-1-Sect
which is Sevren nl-arb (vocals and programming) and Jonathan Sharp
(programming) plus remixes,  two each by New Mind and legends
X Marks the Pedwalk. The four numbers and their remixes; Mind, Les Amants,
Hear Nothing (which does not have a remix), and Death Is Not The End are
classic electro-techno, welcome on any dance floor in the world with the remixes
adding a little shade of hardcore trance for the more psycho-active en-masse.  
If you rave or are an electro addict, this disc is a sure-must for your collection.
Mind and Death Is Not the End are especially top quality..... SPV will
never let you down!!!  Distributed by Underground


Silicone Breast Reduction Troupe:  Hunt

SBRT as they are known on the streets of Los Angeles are four spun-out
babes living off their parents money high in the Hollywood Hills sucking
in all the smog and crank they can get a hold of.  I met Lisa about a month
ago at the Coconut Tweeker early one Sunday morning when she dosed
my cola with LSD #25 (I didn't know it still existed...man was I in for a
surprise!!!)...About mid-day on Sunday her and good friend Cath (another
member of SBRT) drove up to their pad in the hills, which they claim
they afford from their inheritances and blasted me with some of the most
grinding, screaming techno I have ever heard.  The BPM were so fast
and Lisa's howling so inhumane, I couldn't tell if I was coming or going!!
Needless to say, the tape I got in the mail a few weeks later doesn't
quite live up to the experience that Sunday.  But SBRT says they are working
on new stuff, and I am invited to a spring blast at their pad.  I am trying to
get enough sleep over the next few weeks for that one, if it's possible!!
No song listings are given.  Contact SBRT at:  1-800-814-3277


Various Artists:  Nirvana - Jungle Sky IV

Jungle Sky/ Liquid Sky Music have set the precedent, along with Astralwerks,
as to the best new ambient/trance/jungle releases coming from North American
record labels (and that UGR distributes both speaks volumes)...This, Nirvana -
Jungle Sky Vol IV is their finest as to date.  Using some of the best DJ's on the
planet, as well as a few electro-masters, Nirvana takes all the tension in your
body, Mind & soul and wisks it all away with the smoothest mixes this side
of eternal bliss...hey, wonder how they got the name for this compilation!!
DJ Soul Slinger starts off the CD with a wonderful tribal/ desert flavor called
"Ali Rocks". The middle eastern kick continues with some drum and bass
from DJ Ani (a west coast favorite) called, what else, "Eastern Influence"
From then on, the jungle gets thick, with "We Are Not Alone" from 1.8.7.,
Marshall h's "I Wish" and "Flotation Device" from Ben Neill being stand-
outs...but that is not to say that the cuts from inna-most & origin, arto
lindsay, kingsize, tube and scissor hands aren't anything but top notch.
Jungle Sky Records is what jungle is all about!! On Sale from UGR $11.00
