Subject: Addition to Lyrics file

Here is my addition to the lyrics file:

PEOPLE, PEOPLE:
        Seven tumbling oceans surround  
        The ground that I dance upon.
        Black and white and rainbow,
        five colors in my eyes.

        People, People,
        What are we doing in here?
        Oh people,
        What have we done with this?

        When we fight over the ocean
        When we fight over the sky
        When we fight over our borders
        Then we, our brothers and sisters 
        We deny, tell me why is it so?

        Seven tumbling oceans, surround
        the ground that I dance upon
        Black and white and rainbow,
        five colors in my eyes.

        When we stand in our mothers arms
        a feeling of emptiness.
        Whenever we stand in our mothers hands
        we can see there
        
         (Refrain repeats)

Subject: yet another dmb article & an aru date...

yes...
 there is a half page article (with picture) on dmb 
in the record exchange 'music monitor'.  it's mainly 
an interview bit with dave done by a hampden-sydney student.
got some cool facts about the thunderstorm/crickets at the 
end of the album... and some facts about the recording of the 
new album in the fall.  if i get feedback i'll type the article.
if not, then i may just type some highlights... but i don't people 
cheated from anything that might interest them... etc, etc.

col bruce and aru are playing at south main cafe on 3/25, in blacksburg. 
i've never seen/heard them before so i'll probably scope 'em out.
anyone else going? 
anything i should expect?
anything i should know?

             
now that i know that i'm breaking to pieces i'll pull out my heart and
i'll feed it to anyone crying for sympathy crocidiles cry for the love
of a crowd and the three cheers from everyone dropping through the sky
through the glass of the roof through the roof of your mouth through 
the mouth of your eye through the eye of the needle it's easier for me 
to get closer to heaven than ever feel whole again...

Hey Minaretters!

How bout that new DMB newsletter?  I was very impressed w/ the color 
insert catalogue and the stylin' DMB merchandise.

Once again it's time for my 2 cents...

I've never really liked What would You Say too much.  It's kinda a 
happy song, and happy songs are good and you can jump around to them, 
but it lacks that special stirring Dave power that I experience in a 
good Seek Up or Spotlight.  Consequently I think Spotlight would be a 
good song for a first timer--but, I recently found out that Dave hates 
to do that song.  Kind of a bummer cuz it's definitely one of my 
favorites.  However, you can't deny the appeal of a song like Ants 
Marching to a first timer, or Dancing Nancies.  Jimi Thing is somewhat 
for the more advanced DMB listener...hee, hee...I mean it is most 
assuredly in my top 5, but a first timer just might not be able to 
appreciate this Dave tune...I don't know it's just a crazy hunch.

Oh well.
Typetya later.

Subject: dmb in Madison

I'm planning on driving up to Madison for Tuesday nite's DMB show. I'm
probably going to have room for two to three more people in my car, so if
anyone in Chicago or Milwaukee (or along I-94) needs a ride, e-mail me. The
show starts at 10 p.m. and there shouldn't be a problem with getting tickets
at the door. So I'll be leaving here hopefully by 6:30 (or as soon as Lipman
gets out of his class). We hope to tape and will request some seldom-played
favorites (Best of, Drive in Drive out!?!)

Dave Matthews, Gettin' Busy In Your Backyard
 by Robert Beverly, Hampden-Sydney
 in Music Monitor, issue #58, march 94.
  
  Dave Matthews is a busy man.  Three years ago, he was a self-described 
"bedroom guitarist" in Charlottesville who had performed in public maybe 
five times.  Now, he's filling clubs with a hot band and a new RCA record 
deal.  Their first CD, Remember Two Things, sells as fast as great big Bama 
Records can press it.
  The Dave Matthews Band is not on a roll because they're the musical 
flavor of the month. They're on a roll because they're good.  A couple of 
weeks ago, Dave and I tried to asses the past, present and the future in 25 
minutes or less.  We started with the future- recording their major label 
debut.
  "We'll have two months, which is just- heaven.  THe only studio work 
we've done has been like, 'Okay, we're going to record an album- you have 
four days.' And it's really hard to get anything going."
  While live performance is where the band has make it's reputation (and 
most of R2T) the roas leaves little time for steady writing or finetuning 
arrangements.  "At the rate we've played in the last year or two, we could 
probably count rehearsals on one hand.  If I write a new song or we come up 
with somehting at soundcheck, then I'll play that, or we'll play that, 
until the band knows it and everyone can slowly add themselves."
  So just what can we expect, then, from teh DMB set loose in a studio?  
"This band can be as strong, or stronger, in the studios as we are on 
stage. We play other instruments.  LeRoi will be able to bring out his 
flute and penny whistles and oboe.  And Carter's a great conga and timbale 
player."  As for Dave, "I just plunk on the piano, but i like plunking.  I 
don't want people to say, 'Hey, I've already got all that stuff on my 
bootleg.'  I'd like to put out a record that doesn't sound like us live, 
for that reason- one that has the power of it, but has a little more 
clarity."
  Of course, the other instrument involved is Dave's voice.  His vocal 
style came partly from trying to fill out the sound back in his bedroom and 
partly from music across the ocean.  "A lot of African vocals have turned 
me on.  I don't understand what they're saying, but I understand how they 
phrase things and how the words sound, so I think percussion and rhythm is 
probably the biggest influence."
  Dave's interest in music started with hearing the records his parents
played (mostly classical and rock and roll).  There were some formal 
lessons, but "I was a bad student, as I was with any other activity that 
concerned teachers,"  he confesses.  "My mind would wander to the trees 
outside, rather than to whatever was at hand.  So most of my training has 
come from people that I've known who have turned me on to cool music."
  I asked Dave whether his extensive travel growing up had an impact on his 
songwriting.  The key, as good writers know, is being open to one's 
environment, no matter that the location.  "Being in England, Europe, New 
York, wherever you are, there are things.  Even air in a different place 
and the way people talk can be an inspiration."
  It's hard to avoid the irony of his native South Africa's struggle and 
the diversity- black, white and native american- within the Dave Matthews 
Band.  "Any place has its problems with community.  We have all those 
problems, too, but it's like any other family or any other business.  You 
just get along with each other and as much as you want to be in eachothers' 
hearts, you are."
  So did this band just show up at Dave's door?  No.  Dave assembled it to 
help record a demo.  Carter Beauford (drums) and LeRoi Moore(reeds) were 
veterans from a successful area jazz group, TR3.  Friends recommended 
Stefan Lessard as a young but incredible bass player, which he is.  Boyd 
Tinsley (fiddle), who had his own band, joined later.  They got some gigs 
to rehearse for the demo and then some more gigs, and , "then we looked 
around after a year and said, 'Oh, we didn't end up as a studio band.' So 
we didn't really intend this, but that's what happened, which is great."
  Sounds great, but in the age of Nirvana, where's the electric guitar?  
It's simple, really.  "I didn't want to play it.  I wanted to keep it as 
close to an acoustic band as we could.  It's been a healthy thing to 
develop our abilities together without it, because you can't rely on a wash 
or on distortion to hide bad notes.  There they are.  If you screw up, it's 
in everyone's faces."
  Let's suppose Dave Matthews were stranded with three albums on a desert 
island (hey! It could happen).  Here they are; you'll need a pencil.  
"Abdulla Ibraham, because he's so soothing.  "English Settlement" gy XTC- I 
love their old, dirty sound.  I'm trying to think of something a little 
unusual, so when you're on the desert island you don't maintain too much of 
the Top 40 mentality.  And Trio Bulgarka- it's great music."
  While the DMB seems headed for success, Dave has indeed steered clear of 
the Top 40 mentality.  For proof, we can look to the orchestra of crickets 
and massive thunderstorm at the end of R2T.  "There was this huge 
thunderstorm outside where we were recording.  So we just took a blank out 
there and recorded it.  We did the same thing with the crickets."
  What, no special effects?  "Yeah, regular outside-the-house thunderstorm 
and crickets."  Sometimes the real think _is_ already in your own backyard.

Well, Let me lay this one on you,
Forgive me if anyone else posted about this show, Ive been away.

3-2-94
I
Seek up
Satte Lite
Warehouse
Tripping Billies
?
Help Myself
True Reflection (?) 

II
Minarets
Typical Situation
What would you say
?
WatchTower
Dancing Nancies

E: Christmas Song
   Ants Marching

Absoulutly amazing versions of Ants Marching, Minarets, Typical Situation,
Watch tower, warehouse, Tripping Billies and Dancing nancies. Watchtower
brought out a mess of flying strings, broken from rage and furry. Dancing
nancies as well as Minarets had emense feeling behind them which gave the songs
a power. I tried comparing them to other versions but no comparisons could be
made. The lyrics to true reflection (if that is the name) are really cheesy.
Carter started off in a solo for the second encore, then each member came in
with thier own solo until out of nowhere came Ants Marching. The $4 entrance
charge was also a bonus. I was too lazy to make it out to the other Florida
shows. One thing I realized is that the band played pretty short sets. Both
sets were about an hour, not encluding encores. Anyway, a great show.

nifty new full color spread, ordered the new cd, makes me happy

i agree with Rick, JImithing for a Phishhead, first timer
would be key, no doubt especially if it drifted into Seek Up

a phishhead would probably spot those early on Seek Up clues
in Jimithing, word

i'm outta here, hope the net wouldn't be too big on my return

Is it me or has DMB been relying on R2t songs a little too much in 
their sets lately?  What ever happened to Blue Water?  Two Step?  
Spotlight?  Rhyme or Reason?

Also I don't know if this is really know on much of the net, but there 
is also a song #35.  It's a song that Dave wrote about a percussionist 
who used to be in the band who died tragically.

Interesting eh?

Ho hum.

PS...What about Lover lay down? eh Claire.  Dave said at the Birchmere 
when a heckler yelled out for Dave to play that song, "You want me to 
play all the hard songs."  So maybe it's just one like Halloween that 
takes too much out of him.  I don't know?????

i've posted this growing number several times over the course of 
minarets existence...at last check the subscription base was hovering 
around 150 accounts...a much more friendly number than 40,000.  i feel 
much the same way about phish.net sometimes but i cannot doubt that 
phish.net began the whole band/internet thing....at least for me.   
Phish.Net was the reason i first got hooked up to the internet, was the 
reason i learned so much about this crazy world.  Phish.net was just the 
beginning....as i learned more i found other, sometimes more interesting, 
things out there....and with that came the idea of minarets.net.

anyway...enough on phish.net...i suppose if minarets ever has 40,000 
subscribers than the same will be true.

i couldn't check the exact subscription base this morning cause for some 
reason or another the ilp server was down/refusing connection so..... 
the best number i can give is around 150.

get the feeling that this band isn't kidding around?  already they 
basically have two CDs out, have signed a major label, have a few 
merchandise color mailer, newsletter, computer network (granted that 
wasn't there doing), ect...... when i look at phish, it took them nearly 
5 years to get that far.... (i'm not comparing the two bands so don't even 
get the idea in your head :)

i believe we're around here somewhere:  the only new date i noticed on 
the mailer that wasn't already posted was a show at Cornell, ithaca, NY.
and the venue for the boston gig--Orpheum Theatre!! Yea Ha..i haven't 
seen a show there since phish a couple of years ago....wasn't even sure 
if it was still an option....good to see DMB moving on from the Paradise 
ROCK CLUB...oh boy how do i hate clubs anymore...can't wait until dave is 
playing mostly theatres/ballrooms and such....but then i guess i'll wish 
they were playing smaller venues again....it's a never ending cycle.....

Subject: WOW!!!

I'm still in shock after the unbelievable set II of last nite's show in
Madison. The band jammed and ***improvised*** like I only dreamed they could
do. Of the four previous shows I've seen and the 20 or so tapes I've heard,
I've never witnessed such a hot set as set II last nite.

I think Brian Lipman will be posting the set list, so I'll cover the
highlites:
First set pretty standardR2T, but with a NICE Billies (but kept on thinking
how Boyd does tend to repeat the same notes) then a great warehouse (but
aren't they all?) and finished a short set with Help Myself, which was kickin'
as well.

SET II: All of these tunes were the longest versions I've ever heard: Lie in
Our Graves, Jimi Thing (which sort of evolved into something completely
different by the end -- also featuring a long Dave guitar solo), Minarets with
a sick Dave voice jam at the beginning, and #36 (started with a Carter/LeRoi
jam that featured LeRoi playing the theme to Sanford & Son -- the crowd went
wild here -- Michael McDonald, guitar tech and merchandise man concurred with
Jeff that he had never done this before). The set also included a nice
Nancies.

As the band was leaving the stage, they all walked past us to the dressing
room and I whispered to Dave in his strange voice "Halloween, Halloween,
Halloween. When they came back for the encore, I was sort of hoping they
wouldn't play it because Dave had a cold and wanted him to conserve his voice
for the two Chicago shows this weekend. Carter and Dave came back one and the
only hints Dave would give us for the encore was that it was a Holiday song. I
was thinking x-mas song, but sure enough, Carter started with a three-four
minute drum solo, then the rest of the band came on and ripped out Halloween. 

Well, it was a great experience (and all in a tiny bar with no more than 80
people). The only downside was that the place was so small that there was no
real soundboard so no taping :(

Other tidbits: Michael said that the band had been really jamming similarly to
last nite often in the last few shows. But he and Jeff were in agreement that
it was an unbelievable second set. Michael said they had been kind of stuck in
that rotation of songs recently, but that they are working on #34, which I
have never heard, but he said is really groovin'. (Our requests for Best were
ignored). Michael also has a bunch of set lists he may give me on Friday to
post to the net -- said he hasn't had time or access to a computer to keep in
touch with the net. But in April they look forward to getting a tour bus and
lap top computer.

Looking forward to this weekend: two Dead shows, two Dave shows.

Hey y'all

Saw Dave last nite in Madison at this tiny club.  Packed it would have held
like 120, last nite there were like 70 people there.
THE PLACE WAS SO SMALL WE COULDN'T TAPE!  JEFF SAID IT WOULD SOUND LIKE
SHIT (he didn't even run the DAT)

ok, the setlist

Set I

Recently
One Sweet
Jane Likes
Billies
Warehouse (thanks Dave)
Help Myself
What Would You Say
-------
Set 2
Ants (new into variation)
Satellite
Lie in Our Graves (extra long LeRoi solo)
Jimi Thing (Even Dave took a solo!)
Minarets
Drums/Sax--->#36 (the best ever?)
Nancies

E: Drums-->Halloween 


LeRoi and Carter stole the show.
When asked about the Phish shows Boyd said he had never seen them live but
had heard tapes of them)
We were asking for Best all night but they declined to play it.  Dave said
"good chance---a lie...bastard ;->---
Boyd said "oh, we haven't played that one for like 3 months but it will
probably make a comeback soon"

It was the beat Dave show I have seen up to date and the second set was
easily the best set I have heard!

by the way, jamie cogbill, and anyone else who wants to know, this is
the little known song written about a percussionist who died tragically
last year.  his name was miguel valdez and he played bongos as well as
played in a PHENOMENAL experience (for lack of a better word) called
afrikan drum fest.

also, cry freedom is a dave matthews tune.  there were rumors floating
around that it was a cover, which bummed me hardcore, but gregg asked
him straight up last year, and it is indeed original.

kinda nuts that a band just starting out (relatively) only plays six 
covers....

however...i wish they'd write more.  that's one of the reasons phish 
shows are so intense (putting the musical aspect aside for a 
moment)...they have so much material that a live show can go 
anywhere....and you could go to five shows in a row and here little 
repeat (granted this seems to have changed) but with DMB sometimes i feel 
like i'm hearing the same songs way 
too much.  then again, DMB is relatively new so i suppose more material 
will come with time (with more albums too).

alex crothers

dmb does pretty cool covers if you ask me.

OK, I've got at least one to add:  Sweet Home Alabama!

Also, just at the end of a tape that I have, Dave starts "Sympathy for
the Devil," but then the tape ends.  I assume he played the whole thing,

LeRoi played Danny Boy last St. Patricks Day at the Floodzone.  And Dave

	It might sell out and that would be bad for you.
	You don't have to wait in line and can position yourself 
strategically in front of the stage!
