I am a fairly recent subscriber to TNMS so forgive me if this has been
discussed before.  What ever happenned to Terry Brown?  Has he ever
produced records for other performers?  Why did Rush and Terry Brown quit
working together?  Was the split due to some sort of feud or did they part
on good terms?  Have there ever been any discussions of re-uniting for an
effort since they parted ways?  Any quotes from the band or periodical sources
on this subject would be appreciated.  E-mail me if this subject has been
covered to death already or post it if you think this is of general interest
to the rest of the group.

Thanks,

Subject: Rush riffs found elsewhere

Obligatory opener: This is my first post to NMS.

Now we've got that out of the way, on to the important things:
Believe it or not, this Rush fan listens to (gasp) Alternative music.
And guess what I heard -- that's right -- Rush riffs in an alternative
song (and not Primus or any other group mentioned here before)!

A group called the Bare-Naked Ladies (interesting name -- they all wear
clothes, and they're all MALE) have a song called "This is Me in Grade Nine"
which contains riffs from TWO Rush songs buried in the middle of it. Not
samples mind you, unless they're from live versions of the songs, but
most likely performed by the BNL. OK, now for the details: the closing
riff of Spirit of Radio (same as opener, but more complex drum part), and
(for lack of a better description) the intro to the verse which occurs
immediately after the guitar solo section of Tom Saywer (starts at
2:31 in TS on Moving Pictures, for those with CD). I had to hear the
Bare-Naked Ladies song several times to be sure, but they're there.

I won't discuss BNL any further here, that sort of thing happens too
often already with other groups I won't mention either, except I will say
that the song is really high energy, quirky stuff.

Well, time to go "get a life" again....

OK, people -

   with all this talk about 2112 and the end of it, etc.
I couldn't help but ask this questions that's been bothering
me for a long time.  I am fairly sure that I understand 2112,
Cygnus X-1 Book One, and Cygnus X-1 Book Two individually.
I am also fairly sure that I understand how the two books of
Cygnus X-1 are related.  By my question is:  how is 2112
related to Cygnus X-1 Books One and Two ???   Are they a look
at how things were before and after 2112 or what?  I really
lost.  Any ideas/theories would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: Geddy lies!

      This is a post regarding Geddys lies about not being much material
unrelease.  I really don't know why he says this, since for every video that
has been release, there is another that HAS NOT.  There is a live video for
Xanadu, as well La Villa, and many others to mention here.  They could also
release some REAL live CD, not the crap we have been getting.  I, for one vote
for the release of the 1981 Chicago Amphitheatre show, their finest show I have
heard of all time.

Subject: Alex's guitars during 2112

About Alex breaking a string during Overture/ Temples on the ASoH video,
while this may be true, I don't think it is the reason why he appears with
a different guitar throughout the 2 songs and misses his cue on "...and the
meek...", I seem to remember reading somewhere (yes, once again I'll quote
material from a forgotten, unnamed source, sorry) that the ASoH video was
shot 2 or 3 different nights, and the best clips were put together for the
video tape.  While editing, Geddy thought it would it would be funny to mix
clips during that part of the show so it would appear as if Alex had an ever
chainging guitar, one minute its white, then ints purple, etc.  This is 
apparent throughout all of Temples, almost everytime Alex appears on camera, 
his guitar is different, and I don't think he makes 3 or 4 quick switches in 
the middle of one song.  Probly just another example of their clowning around, 
just like the "mysterious" edited lyrics to La Villa, or "catch the spirit, 
catch the fish"--BTW, are there any more quirky events that I've missed in the 
ASoH video, I haven't watched it in awhile, maybe this would make a good thread.

One more thing, someone mentioned a couple of weeks the (s)he thought that
RUSH always opened with a song from the latest CD--since I've been going to
RUSH shows, this has not been the case
    HYF tour--Big Money
   Presto-- Big Money
        sorry--I meant Force Ten ^^^
   RTB--Force Ten
Actually, I prefer Big Money to Force Ten, as it blends with the 3 Stooges 
intro better than Force Ten does.  I guess its time for a new one though, how 
about SuperConductor?

Subject: More (!) video revelations

Jello --

Now, don't get me wrong -- I DO have a life (somewhere...).  It's just
that my professors don't THINK I have a life and have taken it
upon themselves to *give* me one...!

But, really, honest, I have been watching all the Rush videos for a
reason!

And I just realized something as I watched the "Limelight" video
>from "Chronicles".  I may be wrong on this, but "Xanadu" is the only
song they did in which Alex and Geddy played a double-neck instrument,
right?  Well, during one of the 'flashback' sequences, there's a shot
of Geddy playing a double-neck.  Perhaps this was brought up before
(and I think it has), but that seems to (loosely) prove the existence
of a "Xanadu" video.  (Did we discuss this before?)  :-)  Stretching
it a bit, I know, but there is at least 4 videos that weren't included
on Chronicles.  (Xanadu, Tom Sawyer, Show Don't Tell, Superconductor).
Are there any more?

Until the next "Video Update" --

Subject: Just bear with me on this one!

(sigh)

yes, it's another video post.  I'M SORRY... :-) like i said, just
bear with me on this.

After watching the three live videos, something started to bug me,
something that started with the release of ASOH.  Rush is on stage
for two hours, right?  Why are their live videos less than that?

I can understand the CD's being only long enough to fit on one CD
(~ 75 min. long); it's to keep the material from being a double-CD
package with the price that goes with it.  Understandable.  Prices
for CD's are ludicrous as they are.

But, now, a ticket for a Rush concert is ~ $20, right?  A concert video
is about that much.  But we get *less* for the $$!  Along with the
audio, we are paying/wanting to see the *video* portion of the concert.
If we're paying $20 for a video, we should be seeing $20 worth of
concert (which is what the concert costs!).  Doubtless, a 2-hour
live video concert would probably cost about $25 - $30.  Well, when
you add the rediculous service charge of places like TicketBastard to
the concert tickets, the Rush *concert* tickets are about the same
price as the video!

So, with that in mind, why aren't the live videos 2-hours??  In
actuality, they *should* be!  I can understand, on a certain level,
that the band would want to show their best performances.  But if
they're trying to convey a sense of "what it's like to be there",
than that should also include the bumps of the concert.  That's
actually part of the fun of a live concert -- watching your fav
band *do* well and pull it off, even tho you know it's difficult
to do.  And when they don't, it only makes them more human.  I
would be really interested in knowing their reasons for keeping
the videos less than 2 hours.

sorry for the dissertation.  just something to think about...

Date: Tue, 20 Oct 92 13:49:11 EDT

Yes it is true, I have been compiling a Rush boot list.  But I have not
received any info in a while.  Anyone who wants a copy of my boot list, just
send me mail.  I also have the following boot catalogs online: Zeppelin, U2,
Genesis, and Pink Floyd.

Over the weekend, there was a CD show here in Pittsburgh.  My friend bought a
copy of _Rush Over the Europe_.  While we were standing there, he listened to
both OTE and _Bravado_.  OTE is far superior to B.  B does come in a "regular"
2 CD case, while OTE comes in a single jewel case with 2 CDs in it.  But that
is the only advantage of B, he listened to the first 4 songs of each set.
Each of the first 4 songs on B were faded into it, and it sounded really
weird.  On the other hand, OTE has almost perfect sound quality.

BTW:  I still need a set list for Bravado, and if anyone owns it I would like
to hear their opinion.

I finally caught up on all the posting and I didn't see anyone mention that
CITY-TV out of Toronto is showing the series on Sunday nights at midnight.
They kicked it off about a month back with a 7 hour marathon on a Saturday
night, which I taped.  I didn't realize they were continuing to show the
programs until last week so I missed a couple.  This is definitely an
excellent series.  Sorry for the non-Rush content, but I thought people
might be interested.

BTW, CITY is available throughout most of southern Ontario on channel 57
from Toronto or channel 31 out of Woodstock.  Most cable companies have it
on channel 7.  I don't know if it is available via satellite - maybe
someone else can clear that up.

   Thanks rush-mgr for mailing out the concert listing.
   It seems to show that Rush first played Michigan right next door
to my school, Mich. State Univ.. The place was the the Silver Dollar Saloon,
which sadly has become a country bar. To think that Rush played HERE for
it's first American crowds is quite nice to know.
   Did anyone see Rush in their bar/club days, especially here in Michigan ?
The last time they were near my stomping grounds ( Saginaw ) was in 1984 for
p/g tour ( unfortunately, I wasn't into Rush at that time, but my cousin
caught them ).

Subject: Live video, Toronto '74, rarities, Freewill, etc.

Hello all!

	1st:  I would agree with Trav that the upcoming video is
probably going to be a live one (can't wait!).  Has anyone called
Anthem to ask for details?  If anybody wants, they could also ask for
details about Chronicles II...

	2nd:  I might be interested in checking out the RUSH cover
band "Freewill" (especially if they play Natural Science!).  Anybody
have any tour dates for them?...  Also, whoever posted about their
album: does it have ALL original stuff or some Rush covers on there
too?  I wouldn't mind getting a copy of that album if somebody out
there has it...please email me...thanks!

	3rd:  Jimmy:  About the rarities tape...I know there isn't a
treasure trove of studio versions of unreleased songs out there (I
remember that statement by Neil about not wanting to work really hard
and then not release a song), but the band MUST have some really OLD
live stuff laying around somewhere! (this is pure conjecture, I
know).  I mean, don't you think they'd keep some of that old stuff
around for nostalgia sake?  The BIG "if" is whether they'd be willing
to have us throw the rarities tape together!  (They've got to at
least have soundboards from every tour!).  It seems like the key to
convincing them to let us have material to throw together a tape will
be to make them understand that we aren't a bunch of rascals trying
to make money off of them!  They'd have to see us as a group of
devoted fans who just really want to hear some old, unreleased
things!  Of course, I feel ridiculous even talking about this whole
subject!...they'd probably just blow their noses at us over this!

	Does anyone have a tape of RUSH playing Toronto Convocation
Hall in 11/74?  I've seen it on peoples' lists before, but I've can't
seem to track this one down!  I'd really love a copy...anybody wanna
trade?  (Jimmy- I realize this is pushing the limits of
"boot-content"...I've just been trying to get this show forever!!)

Subject: Over The Europe

Hi all.

	Just thought I'd try to shed SOME light on the mysterious
"Over The Europe" cd!  I don't know the date...but I can speculate
some.  I have some European shows, and judging by what I've
heard....I think the cd had to come from AFTER 4/24/92.  That's the
latest show I have (Frankfurt)...and at that show, they weren't
playing Cygnus X-1 yet.  The cd has Cygnus on it...so Over The Europe
must have come from after this date.

	Have any of you other guys who own this cd noticed that, not
only is the date not revealed in writing, but whoever produced this
cd seems to have purposely tried to conceal when it is from?!  If you
listen to the part where Gedd talks before Dreamline and at the very
end of the show,  it sounds like the sound has been spliced together.
He says "Hello" and the sound cuts to "We'd like to play this song
from our blah bblah blah" (paraphrase!).  It seems to me that he
always says the city name at these times ("Hello Cleveland..." or
"Thank You Detroit...you've been a great audience...blah blah").  Why
would the bootlegger feel threatened by merely giving the CITY the
show was taped from????!  I mean that DOES narrow the suspects down
to only 20,000 people!!

I agree with the idea (already nuked too much here to know who exactly
said this in this last issue of TNMS) that we'll probably never know for
sure...but here's a few thoughts on the way I've always looked at the
ending of 2112.

first, I'd always assumed that he did, in fact, commit suicide.  but
to say that Neil is advocating suicide from this, is entirely another
issue.

I mean, think about it for a minute --- after seeing the world of the
elder race of Man, and the creative minds that thrived there, the
protagonist commits suicide because he can't bear to live this empty
life, now that he's seen what kind of life he *COULD* have, if everyone
were free to explore their own creative talents, instead of having every
thought and every emotion provided for them by the priests.  moments
later (my assumption), guess what...if he hadn't gone out and killed
himself, he'd have gotten his wish, since the elder race returned, as
promised (again, my assumption, based on the dream).

in other words, if he'd only held out just a little longer, instead of
going off and doing something stupid, things would have worked out, and
everything would have been fine.

make sense?

Dear NMS people, readers etc.-

things are available through this.  Particularly, I'm looking for a Rush
poster- one with the band on stage, various photos, or whatever, not just
the Neil Peart one from Ludwig, although I may look into that one as well.
                 Any info would be a great help- Thanks! --

   [ The address is listed in the FAQL just mailed out, or on anonymous ftp
     at syrinx. As for what's available, they have *many* older tourbooks (MP,
     Signals, PoW, GUP, etc.) and concert shirts, although most are small or
     medium in size. They don't carry any posters really except for RTB and
     no photos.							    : rush-mgr ]

Subject: Rush "Rare" Recordings Request

I am looking for a generous person who has some "rare" Rush recordings
that they would be willing to copy for free (I'll give you tapes and
money for postage, of course).  I'm especially interested in getting
material from the RTB tour and also copies of some of the pre-"Rush"
recordings (like "Not Fade Away", etc.)  Please send email if you have
any...

Subject: boy / Ged's look / convention

	Once again, i ask WHO is this young man on the cover of
Power Windows?  Any relation to the band?
	Another question:  has anyone out there set a picture of Geddy
in the late '70s/early '80s next to one from the past 2-3 years?
It seems like his entire visage has changed.  I'm not saying he got a nose
job, but the difference is quite striking.   I still contend that his
fashion-designer wife comes up with all the "hair" ideas for him.
	What's up with the NMS Convention?? John Santore, i am waiting
to hear from you!!

Subject: Rush of course !

Hi, Everybody,  This is my first post for some time to the list so I
thought I'd better say something.

MTV europe played roll the bones on sunday, part of their monsters of
rock weekend (hopefully they'll play it a bit more often in future)

Did anybody notice over the summer that Alex is going bald (hey you
could write a song about that).

If anybody in the UK has any concrete news on new releases over here
could they let me know ? please ?

Apologies for any speling msitajes but this terminal is crap.

Cheers

Subject: Rush Covers

I've been following the small discussion of small bands that perform
Rush covers, and it reminds me of a band I plugged in this newsletter
over one year ago.  Anyone in the Raleigh/Durham, NC, area should keep
a look out for a band named Von.  I saw them a year ago when they
played a free show in the basement of my dorm, but I've been co-opping
out of town since then and have been unable to see or even follow them.
Honestly I don't know if they're even still around, but I hope they are
because they are one awesome band.  They're set up just like Rush:
the bassist also does most of the singing, and let me say he's incredible.
They did covers of Red Barchetta, In the Mood, (or was it Working Man?),
YYZ (with a very accurate Rhythm Method), and several other Rush songs
I forgot....Their original stuff was complex and imaginative, very
Rush-like.  Anyway, they hadn't hit the "big time" when I saw them, but
they just may have by now...

Also, any NCSU Engineering students who went to the order of St. Patrick
dance thing in the spring of '91 should remember a band called the Curbs.
They covered Spirit or Radio and Big Money, I think.

Sorry to the majority of you who've probably never been to North Carolina...

By the way, the protagonist in 2112 does commit suicide.  As far as Neil
advocating suicide:  He may have in the 70's but The Pass seems to show he
changed his mind since then, which he has every right to do.

Subject: Hello

Well this is the first time I have mailed something, although you may have 
seen this id before (Due to the fact Paul uses it has he hasn't got an id).  
Anyway what what I want to ask is :

1.  When R Rush playing next in Britain, I saw their concert here
    at Wembly Arena for the first time and it blew me away!

2.  Any news on their next album (if they're planning one.)

3.  Is there anyway I can obtain some of Neil Peart's drum scores
    (Yes I know, I'm a mug for even thinking I could play them!)

4.  Does anyne know how I could get in contact with them directly.
    (A tall order I know, but you never know.. we have quite
    soociable stars here like Phil Collins, Jools Holland,
    Boy George, Vic Reeves etc..)

  [ Check the addresses given in the FAQL.			: rush-mgr ]

Oh well ta da, and happy Rush listening.

Subject: Tape Labeling Program

Hello again Rush-Heads,
    I will make this short since my last was full page.  I have seen programs
that take in the songs or items that are on an audio tape and print them on
a piece of paper such that it can be placed inside a tape case.  I have been
mailed copies of tapes from NMSers with the labels done in such a manner.  I
was hoping that someone owning such a program would have the kindness to
include it in the ftp files for all of us to use.  GREATLY APPRICIATED!!
Until Later,

				The Professor

Subject: NEW BOOTS ARE IN!!

Ok Rush-Heads!!
	Just down at my local cd store today and I found a new boot that
I personally have not heard of.  It is a double cd (no pictures on the cd's)
set from Nassau Col. on I believe March 15, 1992.  The quality is good --
meaning much better than the Fly but not as good as Over the Europe.  The
case is the double size (Over the Europe was two cd's in the size of one).
The top cover is a close up of Neil and his set while playing and the back
sort of clashes and is just a solid, bright blue and has the set list.  Like
the other RTB boots, it has a few mistakes on song titles (Ghost of Dance and
others) and between each track, it fades and then comes back in which I
concluded probably meant that it was not all from a single concert or maybe
just not from a single recording.  The name of this boot is Bravado.  It is
selling at the store for (as all the other double cd boots are) a wopping
$54.  I did not buy this one because I do already have the Over the Europe
cd's and have no excess cash (especially not another $54) so if someone
wanted me to pick this up for them, I would be willing to pay for the
shipping myself (if I could copy it quickly before sending).
	In the same store I found some other cd's ($30 a piece I think) that
some of you might want:  Life Under Pressure, Red Barchetta, and Bone the
Rolls.  All single cd's but I did not have time to listen to them right then.
Anyone interested, I could listen to the cd's and give you a review and
pick them up and send them.  Luckily the store does let you sample ALL items
before deciding to buy them.

Subject: Wrong lyrics to RTB
Date: Wed, 21 Oct 92 12:16:29 -0400
From: ""Jay Hui" Aliasfile: ~/.mh_alias" <jayhui@mailbox.syr.edu>

Hello,
  I remember reading somewhere that Geddy and the band trys to keep the lyric
sheet as accurate as possible. I thought it funny when I noticed an obvious
error on the lyric sheet for the song Roll the Bones.  The error I noticed is
NOT on the complete album itself, but on the CD single for Roll the Bones
that has the songs, RTB, Superconductor from Presto, and the Neil interview
It's a Rap Part III on it.  On the 'rap' by Geddy, these lines appear
on the insert:

>...What's the deal? Spin the wheel. If the
dice are not hot-take a shot....

I noticed that 'not' is wrong. Geddy doesn't say it and in the complete
album, it is written correctly.  I thought this was interesting, either they
used a different original to print those lyrics in for the single, its some
ultra rare lyric sheet (maybe a older version) ;-)!, or just your
average goof-up!.

I think Geddy should sing the Canadian national Anthem for the World Series.
Kind of beats Anne Murray.....:-)..

Jay
