nope. not the lastest release. the first album was self-titled,
`pluto' was the 2nd album.
after that came `the waltz', a 6-track mini-lp with nothing but waltzes
on it, and `elysian', which came out this year.
*all* of them are chock-full with weirdness, great tunes and crazy
instrumentation. all of them are on fuego, distributed by rough trade,
with the exception of the last, which came out on polygram.
i don't know whether the non-europeans on this list (all except me?) will
get ahold of this stuff ... if you can, do.

i saw them live twice in the last few weeks, once in munich and once in vienna.
*fun* time for all the family. i would forward the review i sent to david
after i saw them, but the disk that file is on was fried in a *really*
bad crash ... did any of the unix-hackers among
you ever see the kernel error message `panic: init died'? well, i did.
i taped the vienna show, but the batteries ran out after slightly
over an hour. wellwell. don't trust electronic equipment :-|.
