COMPILATION LIST

If you want a copy of the compilation video, email me and a distributer,
and I’ll put your name here. When you get your video, email me again,
and I’ll take your name off. That way we can track how smoothly this
is all going. And please – when you get your copy, remember to thank
the distributer and Deana (ddearry) for putting it
all together. I cannot overstress how much time, money, and effort she
put into this.

DISTRIBUTER LIST

Please follow the instructions carefully, and if your name is on the
compilation wanted list, please ask me to remove it as soon as you get
your copy. If you do get a gen 2, please consider making a few copies
yourself.

pwnordic – (Glenn) Canadian distribution only. Send a new
video that will hold 6 hours and $5 postage. Give
him time, because he’s only working with one VCR
right now.

gineryc – (Eric) Send a blank video, along with a postage
paid padded mailer. But definitely don’t send any
$, not even for postage, just make sure your
padded envelope has enough postage to cover it
being mailed back to you.

nflhwb – (Harry) UK and Europe distribution
only. This has been converted.

MonMcM – (Monica) Pay for the tapes through paypal or money order
for $6.00. NO PERSONAL CHECKS!
Monica M

j.clutterbuck – (Anna) New Zealand distribution. Give
her time to recover from surgery, and
we’ll get more details at that time.
This has been converted.

mlarson – (Melanie) Depending on the cost of tapes [when I
can get them on SALE :)] it should only run about
$6 per video. I estimate a tape to cost about $3
and shipping UPS ground is only $3. For Wisconsin
residents I can ship via Spee-Dee service and it’ll
be free to me since the place I work at uses that a
lot too. I would prefer payment through paypal or
money orders. Checks are ok, but will have to wait
a week to clear. If you are willing to risk
sending cash, that is up to you and I won’t be
responsible for lost mail. No P.O. Box please.

After weeks of experiencing a vast range of emotions, I feel it’s time
we get together again and recognize at least one thing we all have in
common-our interest in and love for the music of the Violent Femmes.

I hope this day finds all of you and your families safe.

All 3 Are OK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My roomate and I were just trying to clear our heads a little after
watching TV all day so we thumbed through the stack and decided to give
Hallowed Ground a spin on the table. Worked like a charm until it hit
me that I’d read somewhere that at least one of the guys… maybe all I
can’t remember… lives in New York. I checked the webpage but there’s
nothing on it so I guess there Ok? Don’t want to cause panic but I just
wondered. So many gone…peace out for the missing…

Monica:

Thanks ever so much for copying and sending me the compilation tapes.
They arrived today and the hour or so I’ve viewed so far provided
welcome relief from the depressing flow of the last day and week. I
was immediately struck by how much the lads have aged from the early
days to recent concerts. The life Gordon and Brian have chosen is not
an easy one.

I greatly appreciate yours efforts on my behalf and for other Femmes
fanatics.

Be safe and well,

Bob

> VIOLENT FEMMES leader GORDON GANO.
>
> Harvery sings the album title track while Lou Reed takes over

> sings a song called ‘Run’.

> The nine-track album, also featuring They Might Be Giants and Mary

>
> Originally intended as the score for an independent film of the same

RE: Rock
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I keep noticing a lot that Rock!!!!! was released in
1998 or 1999. It was originally released in 1995. I
bought my copy in June 1995 in Germany when I was
there. I thought I would just let people know if they
didn’t know already. I think it was supposed to be a
short ep for the March/April 1995 tour downunder, but
it turned into an album instead that was released only
in Australia and New Zealand.

I haven’t seen this mentioned I am very surprised. Eep Opp Ork Ahh Ahh
(sp?) is being used for a Nokia ad.

The Femmes have sold themselves again with Cingular Wireless using
their version of “Epp Opp Ork Ah Ah” from The Jetsons cartoon fame in
a commercial spot. I caught it over the weekend and just cracked up.
What a random song to choose.

It’s nice to see all the 30 something ad executives out there paying
tribute to the band by using their music to market products.

Hopefully the band is being compensated fairly.

Also, I emailed the bands website about a month ago to let them know
that we have been requesting the song on KROQ and to ask if the band
was going to play live anywhere before the end of the year.

I have not received a response.
