THE DEAD POOL - WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE FUCKED
DANCING IN BERLIN?
Subject: <<< coil live in berlin 24-sept-2000 >>>
Within the last two days we (we're running Germany's biggest online info resource for industrial/atonal % related topics) have received three mails from different people, all asking the same if the following was true?
Nobody here has any official word yet either, sorry. When/If it's made, we'll post it.
Subject: sax replacement fund
I'm interested in donating to the Niels' gives good sax fund, with or without a rarities release.........should I send it to your p.o. box or wait for the official word??
There's no word on the Neils Van Hoorn sax fundraiser bake sale yet. But if/when this happens, it'll be posted!
Where can one order T-Shirts etc for LPD.
Thanks for your attention
For LPD, their label, Soleilmoon sometimes has shirts after a tour to sell. Unfortunately I don't know of any place that would stock them regularly.
Subject: Chris and Cosey.....
I have read several books that mention Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, Genesis and never Chris & Cosey - who have been just as influential in the world of experimental electronica.
I haven't seen one on Coil either. I think TG was a phenomenon and Genesis was just the singer. People always focus around the singer even if they're the least talented individual in the group. I guess mind control and audience manipulation can be a talent...
Subject: Linking with brainwashed.com
I just visited your website brainwashed.com, and I would like to invite you to add your site to our reciprocal links directory.

I'd rather chew razor blades than even respond to junk email like this and get on even more junk lists.
I'm writing news for music magazine and if you can help me to find out which songs Sorrow play last night? If you know same it will be very helpfull.
Thank you in advance,
Oy, urhm, hmmm, try emailing her at the Sorrow website at www.piskidisk.com - other than that, I can't help, I wasn't there.
Subject: Regarding MBM....
I need some serious help here and hope youre the right one. I recently wrapped up a remix of MBM's It's The Music. Not knowing much about copyright (but apparently someone does), I submitted the mix to be part of my mp3.com site, and ultimately, part of my album. I promptly receieved an email from the nice follks at mp3.com telling me they were putting my mix on hold because of copyright violation with MBM's original. They told me I needed some sort of release and had to fax it to them, before they would release my version. I have combed through the MBM website looking for the name of a management rep, label rep, something, someone that I could contact to see what I needed to do about this. Nothing. I DID however notice in MBM's Resources page, a link to MACOS, Musicians Against Copyright of Samples. I found that intriguing and all the more promising that MBM wouldnt have a problem with me remixing It's The Music, and would hopefully even enjoy the remix. Anyway, is there ANYONE you can put me in contact with that could give me permission, in writing, to release my remix?? Thank you very much for your time.
PS: I can provide you with a copy of my mix in mp3 format, if you'd like.
While MBM's stand might be for the gratious usage of sample material, remixing a track might be viewed differently by a record label. Your best bet is to mail a recording directly to their P.O. Box listed on the CDs and wait for a response. It'll take a while, indeed, but it's the only protocol. Sorry.
Where did your h3o-Page gone?
Furthermore I tried to download the h3O-Page with an Offline-Browser, but unfortunately it did not work. With COIL (for example) I did not have those problems with the same Offline Browser.
What's different in the site-architecture of h3O and why it has left the server???
I can't say with 100% certainty but that web designer doesn't like to make things terribly it easy for people to get information. It's all there I can assure you, but it takes a little more effort on the web surfing individual.
Subject: The Wire's description of Brainwashed.com
I was looking at The Wire magazine website and noticed on the links page
Hub for many artist/group sites including Nine Inch Nails, Wagon Christ, Coil, Tortoise, and more
NIN was a mistake on The Wire's part - Brainwashed.com has never housed a web page for Nine Inch Nails. Wagonchrist was a mistake on your part. Luke Vibert's page is www.brainwashed.com/vibert and includes information on Plug and Luke and other projects. All the information can be easily navigated to at the top of the web site - www.brainwashed.com.
Dear Serpents and Jon at Brainwashed,
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that I check the World Serpent site every morning when I get in to work. To my happy surprise, there were some changes, and I just wanted to say that the site looks better than ever. I'm not sure if you've already been inundated with happy messages, but in case you haven't, it helps to know that you're work has not gone unnoticed.
I may have said this before, but I look forward to every release (especially to see the newest cover art for each CD). Keep up the great work. I only wish your store was closer to San Francisco, CA, as I hate having to wait so long for every release.
Thanks for the compliments. We'll be adding sound samples for many many more things in the upcoming weeks and will hopefully have online buying sooner than that.
