In the tradition of the previous threads for BMI
and the Harry Fox Agency
, I wasted the day looking up the Sandisons in other musical works registries (I found 10 different ones, all told), and found a few more unknown works and other curiosities.
I made a Google spreadsheet
and a wiki page
on my findings, but here are the highlights:
* PLEASE TELL ME WHY
listed only in the Canadian CMRRA registry
The song number suggests it is recent, after THIS BIRD but before ECHUS.
* ENGINE, by just Marcus, only listed in the Dutch BUMA/STEMRA database
(switch to English then select "Title catalogue")
* Not by BoC, but a track listed as BUMPER RUHMESHALLE BOARDS OF CANADA by an Ingo Barsekow, who only has one release
on Discogs. "RUHMESHALLE" translates to "Hall of fame".
* Couldn't find either of the Warp20 tracks, SEVEN FORTY SEVEN or SPIRO, in any database
* MELISSA JUICE is the only song on Twoism with Chris H credited
* VOICE099 is listed as an alternate title for WOICE099 in the German GEMA database
* Timeline: Looking at the releases sorted by their International Standard Musical Work Codes
, which increase over time, gives perhaps a rough view of the time period these tracks were created. Most of it is as you'd expect, and there's probably other explanations, but there are some interesting quirks:
* "In a Beautiful Place out in the Country" (the track) has the lowest code of any song, even though it was released after Twoism and Music Has the Right to Children (although this isn't the case for some of the registry-specific id numbers).
* Two tracks from Hi Scores ("Nlogax", "Hi Scores") and "Korona" (off MASK200) were registered at the same time
* Two more from Hi Scores ("June 9th", "Balloon") were registered shortly after at the same time as "Soylent Night", "Chinook" and "Happy Cycling", from 3 different releases (and well after the rest of MHTRTC)
* "Sdesis", "Flute Frum Thing" and "Woice099" were all registered at the same time, sometime before TCH
* For some reason, "Peacock Tail" and "A Moment of Clarity" are each numbered after the rest of TCH, which otherwise are in sequential order
* "It's Too Orangey", "Blueberry" and "1986 Summer Fire" were registerd together. For some reason, they have abnormally very high code numbers, as does "Turquoise Hexagon Sun"
* I couldn't find an ISWC "Telephasic Workshop"; the only album track that doesn't appear to have one
* "Korona" from MASK100 and "Trapped" from MASK200 have ISWC entries, but not "The Midas Touch" from MASK500 (speculation - perhaps this is because the later ones weren't issued with Musak aus Strom, who registered them)
Anyway, if anyone is still reading and is tragically obsessed enough to find this interesting, there is plenty more on the spreadsheet
, with links to all the databases if you want to search for yourself.
