    Hey, Jammers --

    Anyone know if those "aahh"-ing voices at the end of LtL are synthesized
    (i.e. keyboard voices) or real voices? If real, whose voices are they?

    They sound kind of synthesized, but the higher pitches seem a bit
    strained, like a human...

     Just picked up the new Metallica, and...well....ok, I made the mistake of
    listening to Master of Puppets
    on the way to buy the new album. It's just not the same as some of the older
    material. It's gotta grow on me
    I guess. Some highlights: Ain't my Bitch, Wasting My Hate, Cure. If you
    didn't like the last album I would not
    recommend purchasing it. The band is really showing thier age. Oh, also
    picked up Ivanhoe-Symbols of Time, only heard the first track, sounds cool.

    Subject: SCRATCHED CD's
    Message-ID: <v02140b03add646feb128@DialupEudora>

    Pre-emptive notice: The following suggestion won't help you resurrect a
    scratched cd from the dead, but it could breathe new life into it.

    If you've decided to give up on recovering a scratched cd, or not bother in
    the first place, get a fresh one (new or used, your choice). "Gee,
    smartass, I coulda figgered that out!" Yeah, but the next part is the real
    idea--what do you do w/ the old disc?

    If the disc is mostly playable, give it (or sell it cheaply) to someone
    who's not a fan, yet. Swap the jewel box with the most beat up one in your
    collection first (what do they have to complain about at that price?). If
    they don't like it, oh well, have them pass it on. If they do like it,
    they'll eventually have to buy a fresh disc, since the scratches that drove
    you nuts will do the same to them. And the cycle continues.

    This can help the bands that most of us like--bands that are great, but
    spread by word of mouth, not airplay, and whose cd's are not readily found
    on the shelves of (blecch) Musicland. It's recycling, with a better
    potential to expand the band's fans than letting it sit in a used cd shop.
    Besides, they're not going to buy the scratched disc in the first place.

    I think I just made a new echolyn fan with this method.

    Unlike some of the other topics that people have complained about, though, I
    believe this one is strictly prohibited in the rules of the mailing list.
    That's why the G.A.S. is/was being held through private e-mail, rather than

    Subject: TNT
    Message-ID: <>

    Here's the question:

    hey has anyone heard the band TNT? theres this one track the guitarist
    does called Sapphire where he does this incredible trem picking i've
    never heard anything quite like before. its been killin me all night
    listenin to it over and over again, anyone else know who i'm talking

    I'll let my lovely wife answer this question- she just cried for 2 days
    because she couldn't find the TNT tape she made, and then her Walkman,
    but then we found the tape in the Walkman! Yay! Take it away, sexy

    The guitar player of TNT was Ronnie LeTekro from Norway. This band
    doesn't exist anymore. TNT was pretty big in Japan. They were
    typical cheesey 80's hair band, but I liked them then. I had thier
    first vinyl.(When vocalist,Tony Harnel, wasn't with TNT) I am very
    surprised that somebody who is into Dream Theater, like you, liked their
    tune!!! Well, maybe just Sapphire.

    Thanks, baby! Actually, TNT was a little closer to neo-prog than most
    80's hair bands- if anyone remembers, there was a TNT thread running
    through our own YTSEJAM about 2 years ago. You can still find their
    later tapes in bargain bins, although their earlier stuff is more
    interesting. If anyone's REALLY interested, the Kotobukiya Japanese
    market in Cambridge, MA is selling their import concert video for $65.
    (That's the only music item they actually have there.) Don't ask me to
    get it for you, since I moved to New Jersey (Why? So I could pay $8000
    per year in car insurance! :( ).

    Also, someone recently mentioned "Captain Beyond", featuring Rod Evans.
    Could you repeat what you said, or email info on them to me? Thanks!

    Party on,

    As some of you will know, I have taken over the running of the bands Fan Club,
    (yeah ok, running is what it has *not* been for some time), things have taken a
    turn for the better, and I am now in control of matters. As some of you already
    know, I have been running the bands 'Officia' fanzine for some time; this has
    now been incorporated into the fan club set-up. And I will guarantee you WILL
    receive regular mailings!

    A) All of you who are members already, you will be receiving your 'starter' pack
    in the next couple of weeks. What I am asking you to do is, let me know whether
    you have changed address in the last year or so, so I can check on the database
    whether I have the correct one - I don't want to get loads of returns cos of
    wrong addresses! So please let me know of any changes ASAP.

    B) If you are not sure if you are a member, you can contact me with your
    details, and I will let you know the outcome.

    C) If you wish to sign up, contact me, and I'll send you the details on how to

    That's all for now, and I look forward to you being part of the NEW Fan Club

         I've found that keeping the cd player as horizontal as possible
    keeps the cds from skipping. That only works with little scratches
    though. With bigger scratches you will probably just have to get a better
    cd player. I've got a portable cd player that will skip on any tiny mark
    but my car's 12-disc changer won't even skip when it plays on cds that
    look like they've been used as sand paper.

         BTW, if Doug Merrel is reading this, where the hell have you been?!?!

         Thrash on,

         Hey Kids!!!!!

            Hey Moojo, kind of funny that your post about rip saying things
    about cows came right before yours. I think you guys have fantasies about
    cow tipping or something. And another thing. Two years from now, when the
    Rangers are mired in last place, the Islanders ( minus the fisherman) will
    be winning their fifth Stanley Cup, and if you hate Sports channel so much,
    pay for M.S.G yourself!

            Ben, I think that the problem with Scarred is not the bell, but the
    snare and Bass drum pattern, he's playing on the "and" of the note, not the
    actual quarter note.

            Apt.Q258, Col Bruce rocks!!!!!!!

            Not gonna post a top ten list, but I agree with D-man, No Alex
    Lifeson is a SIN, just think, he influenced nearly every progressive
    guitarist. Alex is certainly the most overlooked member of RUSH, and wrongly so.

            Anyone know what kind of Ride Cymbal Mike used to record I&W? I have
    the same one, and it is awesome. Any guesses guys?

    If you can spend $12 on all the different products and be able to fix
    CDs in the future that get damaged, that would save money over the
    long run.

    Not to mention that you can brush your teeth with more of a choice of
    cleaning materials, plus you can make your car, truck, bicycle, etc.
    look better.

    >>Is it true that you can stop CDs from skipping by applying car wax to them? >>

    There is no secret formula or voodoo black magic bullshit involved...

    A few companies make CD repair kits. They usually consist of some liquid goop and some method to apply them, such as cotton swabs or little polishing cloths. If you look hard enough, you can find them at various stores that sell CDs.
