"1986 Summer Fire" may be a reference to the first Redmoon event, given what is now Music70 formed in 1986.

i'm pretty sure they recycled a web loop into Treat Em Right (BoC Remix)
And you can't just come out and live with a religious community in a beautiful place out in the country and get away from it all...

Yes. It was the "Open the Light" web loop.

I watched this film yesterday and there is this scene in it that sort of reminded me of 'From One Source All Things Depend'. The music is beautiful, although not as hard hitting as the BoC track. It's not that it sounds anything like it, but it just has that same feel. Conjures up those same feelings. Conjures, that's a really nice word.

I've been trying for ages to work out what the deeply buried children's voices are saying on In The Annexe and this is the best I can do at bringing them out, can anyone help decipher it? 0:15 - 0:20 has the clearest part where it sounds very much like children singing a nursery rhyme with the same melody as Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush / This Is The Way We Brush Our Teeth. I've had a few stabs at Googling certain phrases that I can decipher but haven't hit anything yet.

i'm 99% sure it's about this:

"My friend bet me I couldn't start a fire using only one match. But I managed to get this meagre little flame going in this damp little patch of ground. Then when we were about a mile down the road, we looked back and it was like, 'whoosh!' - the whole wood was on fire! I love the countryside, I hate the idea that animals or trees or anything might get hurt. I had dreams about it for months afterwards."

Hello (it's been a while...)

I couldn't find any reference around here to this track by Art Zoyd from 1985, Sortie 134 (Part 2), so apologies if this has come up before.
The laughing was possibly some influence on BOC though. Not sure if it was sampled too, but the way it's used is very similar to IABPOITC.

Not a sample but I speculate that Melissa Juice was originally a song by christ. titled Lissajous, which he didn't care for much and BoC misheard it and they joked around with that being the name. At some point they made a mix of it, which christ. liked a lot more and he just let it be their song.

Not a sample or a sound but I discovered recently that "Melissa Olson" is in fact Chris Cunningham.

I'm very certain Melissa Olson is a real person, they've stated Olson is "the surname of a family we know".

i highly doubt someone from this “family” directed the video. On an old reddit post i explained my theory, here it is pasted: “ Melissa Olson is credited for directing the Dayvan Cowboy music video and the Invocation video. I don’t think i’ve seen anyone else point this out but... what are the odds that’s not just a pseudonym? I mean, seriously, when you think about it, they directed those videos and pulled an Aphex on us by just slapping someone else name one it. They didn’t even try to hide it either really, “Melissa Juice” (Obvious reference to the Lissajous curve seen in mathematics) and “Olson” is said to be the last name of an old friend, but I doubt that old friend directed the videos...”

No seriously, it is Chris Cunningham. I have a friend that did some graphic design work for BOC. The famous blockbusters question mark.

He did a bunch of graphic design work around the Trans Canada Highway release time.

Did he do the design for TCH?
I'm itching to see what some of the blurrier pictures on that album are.
I wait, tense...then disappointed

No it was a website he designed for the TCH release I think, and the question mark was part of the job.
