Pop Goes Art
Released 21/07/08. Perhaps the singularly most important album of that fledgling, garage, power - pop - punk independent scene of 1982. Featuring Edward Ball and Daniel Treacy, and issued on their own Whaam! Records, Pop goes Art! is a landmark release - one of the vital seeds of the whole Creation, Whaam! Living Room / Room At The Top revolution.

Mojo Magazine awarded a very respectable 3 stars to this CD.

Go! With The Times
Edward Ball and Daniel Treacy, The Times and the TV Personalities in 1980 - twenty year old visionaries of a sound that surrounds us more than quarter of a century later, or nitwits in cravats and beige corduroys? You decide… Start by listening to 'Red With Purple Flashes' or 'My Andy Warhol Poster', songs and a sound that predates the artistic interests and ambitions of Babyshambles. Or 'Pinstripes', even 'Dressing Up For The Cameras' - using irony like a bazooka and social observance long before THe Artic Monkeys and The Kooks. How about 'The Joke's On Zandra' - Franz Ferdinand anyone? Everything you hear today, you can hear on this release, the first Times album from November 1980. Only when they did it there was nothing to compare. It's the sound of youth, the father we hate in its sights. Not afraid to ridicule anything or anyone - 'Interview' magazine-period Warhol, Zandra Rhodes - post-punk idiots to the slaughter. The Times hold the dogs of rage without letting them bite. And until the Smiths turned up, no one could do it with the same degree of humour. As we've come to expect with ARTPOP! releases, the label maintains it's high standard, reissuing the original album in its entirety, plus previously unavailable extra tracks. Also containing extensive extracts from the Edward Ball Diaries, quotes from all involved and a plethora of pictures seen and previously unseen. And remember, the next time you listen to the Times' 'No Hard Feelings' and imagine it to be Pete Docherty's Lets Make Up song for Carl in a Libertines reformation, don't blame me!! Our Price: £9.95

Enjoy / Up Against It
Released 21/07/08. This reissue compiles the complete 1986 Times albums Enjoy and Up Against It for the first time on CD, featuring Times T.V, Britannia Sleeps Tonight and of course Up Against It. Written in reaction to the U.S. Paisley Underground wave of bands then currently feted - Dream On Red, Green Syndicate, Drain Parade and REM Speedwagon, Enjoy connects Edward Ball and his Times to Ray Davies and The Kinks as natural storytellers of everyday British life - but with the added twist of an English nightmare in America. Our Price: £9.95

E For Edward / Pure / Et Dieu Crea La Femme
Released on 24/08/09. Three albums excavated in their entirety documenting the closing act of the Nineteen Eighties, the dawn of a new Pop Ascension and the Fall Out that ensued. Definitive period pop music leaving behind the Gothy-Table Set murkiness of the Black Decade, announcing the Swinging Acid House about to erupt, with songs like Manchester almost accurately predicting the 'Madchester' mass hysteria that was to follow. These albums signalled the beginning of a new prolific song writing/recording period for Edward Ball and the Times on Creation Records at a time when True Independent Pop was never more celebrated. Our Price: £9.95

Cutting Edge Retro: A Mood Six Anthology
Neo-psychedelic combo Mood Six was formed in London's West End in 1982; emerging from the remnants of mod revival groups like the Merton Parkas and the VIP's, their original line-up included Phil Ward, Tony Conway, Andy Godfrey, Guy Morley, Paul Shurey, and Simon Smith. Debuting with a pair of tracks on the "A Splash of Colour" compilation, the group immediately launched itself to the forefront of the short-lived British psychedelia revival. Signing to EMI, Mood Six issued their first official single, "Hanging Around", but were dismissed from the label when the follow-up, "She's Too Far (Out)", proved a commercial disappointment. This anthology double-album gives no emphasis to the early period but begins from 1984, when the false glitter and pretence was stripped away and a more honest band emerged. Cherry Red Records have carefully reproduced the majority of their creative output, which includes three albums: "The Difference Is..." (Psycho 1985); "A Matter Of" (Cherry Red 1986); "And This Is It" (Lost Recording Co 1993); several singles and a bunch of odds and ends, (including two new tracks: "A Perfect World" and "Misunderstandings" - these tracks are the strange fruits of a series of songwriting and demo-ing sessions held in a north London flat in 2002) We're happy to introduce this unique package and are confident of receiving good press and radio exposure. Mood Six "Cutting Edge Retro: A Mood Six Anthology" is another fantastic package from the prolific Cherry Red Records. A double-album anthology featuring album tracks, singles, b-sides, rarities and 2 brand new, previously unreleased songs. Our Price: £9.95
