ARCANUM STUFF

Hi everybody,
We're splitting up this e-mail to a few of you at a time (there are almost
300 on our e-mail fan list now, and I know you don't want to read all those
e-mail addresses before getting to the heart of the letter;-)
Anyway, we have been incredibly busy lately.  In just the past couple of days
we have been added to 2 different shows on the internet that will be
available to download by the end of the week:
1) "Future Hits" - a ten song
show that will be playing "The Rhythm is a Sadist" in between the new singles
from U2, Depeche Mode, Prodigy, Stone Temple Pilots and Rage Against the
Machine - not bad company;-)  The show will be available to download this
Fri. at http://ww2.audionet.com/jukebox/future.htm     We'd really appreciate
it if you can request us at request@altrockworld.com     to ensure that we'll
continue to get played on future shows, and to prove that we deserve to be
among those names.  

2) CRUX internet radio - you can find this at
http://www.crux.org/cyber/shows.htm

We'll be under the "Fresh from the Oven" shows by the end of this week as
well.  Again, we'd really appreciate it if you could request us at
crux@crux.org    for the same reasons;-)
Among these stations, we've now been played at around 30+ stations all over
the world, one of which (Flyer Radio in OH) we are in rotation.  Still we
have no one helping us, this was all done on our own - no managers,
promoters, lawyers...nothing!;-)  But we still haven't been played at the
major station here in Atlanta, 99x.  If you could request us at Steve@99x.com
 we'd really appreciate it because that would help a ton.  

We have also just written the theme song for an independent film in the
making called "Pale" (which is appropriately titled 'The Theme to 'Pale''
;-).  It's a mid tempo song kind of like James Bond meets jazz with drum
loops.  We're told it's in the early stages now, but hopefully it will see
the light of day by the summer.  We'll let you know.
Our official web page will hopefully be updated sometime soon, because there
are tons of new great reviews to add to it (still no bad ones yet;-).  You
can find some of them now (there are more, but these are the latest) at:

181.4 degrees from the norm - http://www.181-4.com/
Aiding and Abetting - http://cent.com/abeting/AAtoc.html
Sonic Boom - http://www.sonic-boom.com/
Open Up and Say - http://comp.uark.edu/~tcraven/openup.html
And of course there is the "Pro Sound News" and "Banned Thoughts" magazines
that we already told you about last week;-)
Thanks again for everything.  And if you've bought a cd from us already, we
really appreciate it and are hoping that you are enjoying it;-)  Hope to talk
to you again soon,

Brett and Shaz

Hi!

After a long while i've finally been able to spend a few hours on updating
the unofficial dEUS homepage. Unfortunately this wasn't enough 'cos it's
still not fully updated. However quite some things have been changed or
updated. I did this mostly with info provided to me personally and of course
to this list. So a very big thank you to everyone who sent this stuff (Paul,
Martijn, Thijs & lots of others)!!!

A new feature is an ftp-like directory which contains lyrics & tab. Over
there you can download WCS (except for Great Am. Nude & Right As Rain) and
In A Bar lyrics, and guitar tab to Suds, Hotellounge, Via, Roses &
Morticiachair. To go there directly: http://www.xs4all.nl/~huubs/tab_and_lyrics/
The new album is in the discography, some compilation info was added, Danny
M. is included in the line-up, some links were added while a few unreliable ones
were removed, etc. Updates to the reviews section, the Kiss My Jazz stuff
and the bootleg discography are first on my yet-to-do list.

There is still quite some lyrics & tab stuff missing so if you've got
something to add please let me know...

bye,

Jorg

 "Those Kids... They DIG the SWINGFACE"

SwingFace
 
 LIVE AT LAST!
 
 January 30th SwingFace will be appearing at the illustrious Cafe' Tattoo in
 lovely downtown Overlea! (Well, I think it's Overlea...it may be Belair, but
 what difference does it make...) We will be appearing with the always
 lovely, always dashing, and usually sweet smelling Tobias Hurwitz, and his
 band of miscreants. SwingFace will hit the stage around midnight, and big
 fun will be had by all! For directions, feel free to email me:
 swingface@infinite.ihub.com
 Cafe' Tattoo
 4825 Belair Rd
 (410)325-7427
 
 ALWAYS GOTTA BE ABOUT COLOR!
 
 Step right up, step right up: The SwingFace coloring contest is in full
 swing! We've already had a couple winners, and get more entries every day!
 Go to http://swingface.ihub.com and click on the CONTEST button for more
 details, and to see the latest winner.
 
 WE'RE READY FOR OUR CLOSE-UP MR DEMILLE!
 
 News from the Silver Screen: I just spoke with our pals at Flipside Films,
 and apparantly the shooting for "Pray For Us Sinners" is almost done. All
 the filming has gone rather well. (with the exception of Demi Moore refusing
 to do her nude scene...go figure...) Look for a release sometime in the
 spring. I'll update you with more information as it happens!
 
 SONY KAWASAKI HITACHI KOWABUNGA
 
 I think I'm turning Japanese: On February 14th (the international day of
 love and sharp abdominal pain) SwingFace will be featured in a documentary
 about the internet on the NHK Network in Japan. We had alot of fun shooting
 the footage with our new found Japanese friends about a month ago, and we
 can't wait to see the finished product! So to all you Japanese SwingFace
 fans, get ready for some great footage of us practicing, working, and
 generally jerking around!
 
 PUT THE SOFA OVER THERE BY THE BAY WINDOW
 
 Oh what a tangled Web we weave: The SwingFace website is getting a makeover!
 No, it didn't go on the Ricki Lake show...at least, not yet. Our resident
 webmeister, Allan, is working his little drumming fingers to the bone to
 bring our website to the next level. We've already got alot of pictures,
 soundfiles, and other fun stuff up there, so who knows what's next! We'd
 also like to hand out some stone cold props to my bro Mike for helping out
 with the art! Keep up the good work! We hope to have the new site up and
 functional by mid February.
 
 Well, that's about it right now. Please direct any questions or comments
 directly to me at swingface@infinite.ihub.com, unless you want the whole
 world to read it...then you can just reply to this message!
 
 Love and all other things sticky,

RE: Review....GROOVE KRICKETS

With all the changes and various styles in music over the last few years
(commercial bands getting heavier and heavier and computers being integrated into music)
it's refreshing to hear a band that still believe in delivering straight ahead Rock N' Roll.  
The Groove Krickets are a band out of Nashville Tennesse.   The Groove Krickets are:
TJ Blackmon onguitar,  Johnny Knoch is the drummer,  I'm totally nuts with ants in my
pants to boot. They have been around for about a decade and have toured different
countries in the world a few times over.  They have had exposure on MTV and various
local TV and Radio shows throughout the years. Their style of music is nothing like what
you'd expect to come out of Nashville Tennesse and is definitely not comparable to Garth
Brooks or WIllie Nelson.    This is evident on their 3 song demo which includes  "Drivin'",
 " Black and Gray" and "Who's to Blame".  The songs on the tape are all raw-sounding in
your face anthems with contagious lyrics that have you singing along by the last chorus!

For an interview with Dave baker of the Groove Krickets...click on the group photo on
the frontpage of the Underground Sound Webzine:

SOULSCAPE

*Greetings*
So we finally got off our lame asses and mailed you guys something.
Consequently, if there is anything that you want to know, then write us and
let us know.
Well , to get on with things, we will NOT be releasing Collective Auditory
Hallucinations  as soon as we thought. However, we ARE going in the studio
at least once a month to try t get that out to all of you A.S.A.P. Cool? Cool.
        
        *Current Exploits*
"So", you are asking yourself, "is there anyway I can enjoy the smooth,
sweet sounds of SOULSCAPE in the near future?" Well, to answer that, we have
officially NOT released Neo-Human as we planned, BUT, we are releasing it as
a basic D.I.Y. package (D.I.Y. = Do It Yourself). This includes collector
artwork spliced from some of your favorite mags on the cover, and the
following five songs:
 "WHATEVER","FEAR","GRAVITY", "DIGITAL EMOTIONS", and "PINDROP".
By not printing and producing this EP the way we had planned we are able to
put that money into the production of the full length CD later this year.
So, how can you receive a copy of the Neo-Human D.I.Y. release? Just mail us
a friendly donation of two(2) dollars and your name and address, and we will
respond promptly.

        *New Music*
We are currently going through some experimental phases in our writing. This
is taking us in a direction which promises some real trippy stuffS, the same
trippy stuffS you have come to expect from four equally tripped people.

        *Live Shows*
Well, the last show we had was December 4th at The Masquerade with Planet
Psycho and Redrum, and it went rather well. For those of you who did not
make it, you missed a good show, but perhaps you will make it out next time.
We have no immediate plans for a live performance, but look for a show in
late February or early March. All upcoming show information can be found on
our Web site, or on kanE's voice mail message at: 404-282-4983.

        *Miscellaneous Shit*
--Expect various SOULSCAPE merchandise in the near future.  (Shirts,
Stickers, Sex toys, etc.)

--Visit our World Wide Web page at:  www.mindspring.com/~hemlock/soulscape
 Concert information will be advertised there.
        
--SCARECROW is still looking for his binky and if anyone  has seen it please
e-mail us at:   hemlock@mindspring.com

                        thanx,
                        SOULSCAPE
