Give Me Take You
Released 13/04/09. 'My two biggest successes would have to be the Rolling Stones and the Small Faces; equally satisfying, but not as commercially successful, was Duncan Browne. Duncan was amazing…so talented. It may have said on the records ‘Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham', but all I did was book the studio and watch the lad do his magic. And magic it was.'

Thus spake former Stones manager Andrew Oldham, who signed the late Duncan Browne to his record label, Immediate, in 1967. Oldham duly oversaw the recording of Duncan's 1968 debut album Give Me Take You, which, as with several other Oldham projects of the time (notably the Billy Nicholls album Would You Believe), only received limited distribution due to Immediate's crippling financial problems.

Now widely acknowledged as a genuine UK baroque pop/psychedelic folk classic, Give Me Take You has long been a heavily sought-after album on the collectors' circuit, with original copies selling for several hundred pounds. It has also attracted significant critical acclaim, being described by one monthly music magazine as 'an English Astral Weeks', and regularly compared to such Spirit of the Age masterpieces as the Kinks are the village green preservation society, the Zombies' Odessey & Oracle and Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left.

The Small Price Of A Bicycle
Released on 21/03/11. The Icicle Works were founded in Liverpool in 1980 when bassist Chris Layhe (who had been in a couple of local rock bands including Elanor and Blind Owl) answered an advertisement for a musical collaborator placed by 20 year old Ian McNabb. The two got together and started writing. They quickly added drummer Chris Sharrock (who had previously drummed for the Cherry Boys), and began playing live shows. After the release of their self-titled debut album the Icicle Works struggled to match their initial commercial success. However, they continued to receive critical acclaim as a live band and secured a loyal fan base both in the UK and abroad.

There's actually nothing small about the Icicle Works' second album. Like early U2, Big Country, and Simple Minds, the Icicle Works paint with a large canvas; on The Small Price of a Bicycle, the Icicle Works don't stray from their formula of mammoth guitar riffs and epic choruses.

The galloping bass and sweeping vocals of Hollow Horse should've been as successful in the U.S. as the band's only American hit, Birds Fly (Whisper to a Scream). "We'll be as we are/When all the fools who doubt us fade away," McNabb bellows defiantly on Hollow Horse, lyrics that are as catchy as the "We are, we are/We are but your children" sing-along of Birds Fly. Filled with high drama and a ceaselessly driving beat, Hollow Horse nearly stomps the rest of the album into mashed potatoes. Perambulator exposes the Icicle Works' more aggressive side, one that McNabb would explore further on his Head Like a Rock LP, while Seven Horses is more of the same, McNabb's throaty voice riding on a wave of colossal guitars and thumping basslines.

This reissue in conjunction with Beggars Banquet contains two bonus discs of rare and unreleased material, together with informative notes by long time Icicle works champion Jerry Ewing who has talked to Ian McNabb about the making of the album.

Alt - CD Edition
THE NEW PROJECT FROM VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new studio project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011.   "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group). PETER HAMMILL explains; "Instrumental Improvs & Experiments - Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or perhaps only while the left side of our collective brain was engaged. The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The fourteen pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the wacky end of the scale!”   This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Press:-

"Alt is, according to Hammill, a collection of instrumental improvisations recorded "while we weren't really looking or while the left side of our collective brain was engaged".

These pieces have a good deal of merit, even if they're lacking any sort context or concept  - the crashing percussion of tracks like Midnite Or So, buffeted by jazzy runs of electric keyboard, are reminiscent of the wilder experimentalism of Faust." (7/10*)
