"No we ditched it...because we were so messed up
and we went in, tried to do the track, but we just couldn't do it. It was
actually a really difficult period of time. We had a five week break and
all the shit was coming to the surface. It was all a bit wierd..I mean
we went in and tried to do this old track that we had... and it just
wasn't happening at all. It was a real low point

Velvet Goldmine' Soundtrack Yields Glam Treasures
Michael Stipe recruits everyone from Thom Yorke to Thurston Moore for movie's
Senior Writer Gil Kaufman and Contributing Editor
Dakota Smith report:
NEW YORK -- Operatic rockers Shudder to Think were
vamping it up onstage in leopard-skin hats and wrap-around shades at the
Bowery Ballroom recently.
The group -- which is among the artists who contributed
to the just-released soundtrack to the glam-rock film "Velvet Goldmine"
-- added a touch of neo-'70s decadence to the already-oozing ambience of
the Lower East Side venue where a party was held Oct. 26 to celebrate the
New York screening of the film.
"Tonight, we'll be performing music from "Zorba the
Greek," Shudder to Think singer Craig Wedren joked to the enthusiastic
crowd in between songs at the event. All the music played at the party
was so lush and glamorous it could have come from the soundtrack.
In compiling the star-studded, 19-song soundtrack,
which was released Tuesday and includes performances by Thurston Moore
of the ambient-pop act Sonic Youth and Thom Yorke of the Brit-rock band
Radiohead, the film's co-producer Randy Poster said he looked for just
the kind of performance Shudder to Think gave the night of the celebration.
"The music had to absolutely jibe with the visuals,
which it does. I think by virtue of the fact that they didn't have to do
a whole album, it liberated a lot of the artists, so they could have fun
with it, which they might not have been able to do without the context
of the film."
The "Velvet Goldmine" soundtrack contains original
music by Pulp, Yorke (fronting Venus in Furs), former Suede guitarist Bernard
Butler, former Roxy Music member and ambient-musician Brian Eno and art-rocker
Grant Lee Buffalo. It also features vocals by "Velvet" actor Ewan McGregor
fronting the Wylde Ratttz.
Mirroring the highly anticipated flick's overwrought,
glitzy '70s look, the party and its denizens roiled in unabashed indulgence
and ostentatiousness, starting with the androgynous-looking male models
handing out small bottles of Moët champagne to guests entering the
The party's raison d'être -- the celluloid
tribute to the sex-and-drug-crazed glam-rock era, which was co-produced
by R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe's film company and written and directed
by indie-auteur Todd Haynes ("Safe") -- is due to hit theaters in mid-November.
It stars "Trainspotting" lead Ewan McGregor as the Iggy Pop-like American
rocker Curt Wild and Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("The Governess") as Brian Slade,
a character based on Roxy Music leader Brian Ferry. Also in the cast is
Toni Colette ("Muriel's Wedding") as Slade's wife.
"Velvet Goldmine" sports a fictitious, Stooges-like
band called the Wylde Ratttz, and another, Venus in Furs, reminiscent of
rs Roxy Music and named after a song by ambient pre-punk
minimalists Velvet Underground.
"The movie is about pop stars," Poster said, speaking
days after the event. Poster co- produced the film's soundtrack with Stipe
In making their contribution to the film, Shudder
to Think cut loose in new and colorful ways on such tracks as the lush,
Bowiesque ballad "Hot One" (RealAudio excerpt) and "Ballad of Maxwell Demon"
(RealAudio excerpt)," on which Wedren does his falsetto best to create
the feel of a blissed-out glam prince.
For Shudder to Think's short set at the Bowery Ballroom
event, Wedren -- sporting '70s- style muttonchop sideburns -- and bandmembers
Stuart Hill (bass), Nathan Larson (guitar), Kevin March (drums) and Steven
Bernstein (horns) gave the latter song a spot-on rendition and also treated
the party-goers to a spirited take on the wholly appropriate Rolling Stones
nugget "Star, Star."
Speaking in the club's basement after the band's
performance, Wedren said Haynes was one of the band's favorite directors,
and that the band was honored to contribute to the soundtrack.
"They capture the new era of glam rock -- they looked
very feminine, and the clothes -- they could have been their own fashion
show. They're avant-garde hip," said New York fan Chris Hulbert, 33, about
Shudder To Think.
Adding to the glam-styled music that dominated the
gathering, party-goers fit right in to the film-inspired, hedonistic scheme,
living it up in the style of the flick's fictitious characters by flaunting
such glitzy garb as pink boas, silver shirts, glittery makeup and fake
Jim Lyons, who edited "First Love, Last Rites," an
independent film for which Shudder to Think did the soundtrack, worked
with Haynes on the "Velvet Goldmine" soundtrack, Wedren said.
"We were sent the script," he explained. "It was
a gorgeous read. It wasn't hard at all coming up with songs for the movie."
Poster said Stipe was involved in creating the soundtrack
by connecting the filmmakers with musicians and spending time in the studio
with the movie's other fictitious band, Venus in Furs, in addition to helping
coach the actors on their vocal performances. Stipe identified Yorke, for
instance, as a voice that he wanted to use and built Venus and Furs around
him, Poster said.
"He also sort-of gave them a basic understanding
of what they would be doing as pop stars in the studio," he said.

Velvet Goldmine Premieres In Edinburgh
The film is expected in North American theatres
The Singer The glam rock movie 'Velvet Goldmine'
had its long-awaited premier at the opening of the Edinburgh Festival last
He's mad about the film, too: "It's a fantastic movie!
An opener for any film festival. It's a completely mad piece, so it'll
do the Edinburgh Festival good, I think."( Ewan McGregor)
The Critic 'Velvet Goldmine' hasn't been well-received
by everyone, but film critic Mark Couzens thinks the movie will propel
Todd Haynes into the A-league of Hollywood directors: "It was head and
shoulders the best film at the Cannes Film Festival this year and it's
also a surprise because everyone's going in expecting sex and drugs and
rock'n'roll, but it's not like that at all. It's a real pierce your heart,
serious, disturbing piece of work. It's fantastic - I think Todd Haynes
is the best American film-maker since Scorsese."bbc 17.8.98

CANNES -- "She is an extreme woman in every
way," Toni Collette says of her sexually experimental character Mandy Slade
in Velvet Goldmine, "and I guess in terms of work I don't like going halfway.
Going the full way with her was a total, total pleasure." Michael Stipe
of R.E.M. was the wildest-looking but softest speaking person at the Velvet
Goldmine press conference. Dusted in glitter, shaven bald, wearing an orange
work shirt with his name emblazoned on a tag, and goofing around with a
blue pig's nose that he popped onto his own for photographers, Stipe was
the eccentric. He talked quietly of being the producer of the film, working
to secure music rights and encouraging the actors playing the rockers to
strut their stuff during the shoot. "For some of the actors, it was probably
good to have a real live pop star on the set," Stipe said smiling. (JAM)
