Out today October 6th and available on all digital download music platforms including ‘itunes’ some more classic forgotten treasures from the Music Vaults of Bristol…….
ARC064 THE ESCAPE ALBUM ‘IS NOTHING SACRED’
‘Apocalyptic, Dystopian, Edgy, Gothic, Brilliant and sounding as good today as in 1980’.
ARC031 THE CORTINAS ALBUM ‘FOR FUCKS SAKE PLYMOUTH‘
‘And this Live Album recorded in Plymouth sometime between those two gigs in ’77 tells the story, you can’t quite hear all the lyrics, well that was what it was like, and titles like We’re Gonna Play in the Subway Today said it all, to us anyway, if not to Tony. He took particular offence at Fascist Dictator, (single released June 1977), because 15 year old Bristolians couldn’t possibly understand the politics. Hey maybe the Cortinas helped raise our consciousness ready for ‘Rock against Racism’ a few months later?’
ARC037 THE CORTINAS ALBUM ‘PLEASE DON’T HIT ME’
‘ It was time for an album; Miles Copeland who had his finger in every punk pie going and was the king of the record deal gave them CBS. Please don’t hit me comprises the demo tracks that secured the Cortinas the deal and consequently the album True Romances’
ARC061 MYSTERY SLANG ALBUM ‘VENUS GROVE’
‘Latif Gardez at his magical best, dark and dangerous’
ARC038 POLA ALBUM ‘BEST OF POLA’
‘Classic pop from the brilliance of Paul Sandrone and John Tuff’.
ARC063 ANDY FAIRLEY ALBUM ‘FISHFOOD VS BIRTH OF SHARON‘
‘ Featuring analogue synth base, tape sampling, and found sounds their un self-conscious blend of Funk, Punk, Germanic beats, English pop and Beef heart was years ahead of it’s time. Never before available but legendary amongst those who heard or saw the band at the time and pre dating recent work by local favourites Portishead by twenty five years maybe only now is the world ready for the creativity, sonic experimentation, humour and sheer nerve of these songs.’
MORE NEWS – following initial meetings held this week it looks like we’ll have future releases from ‘STATIK SOUND SYSTEM’ and ‘NECROMANCY‘
Over and Out!
