Go! With The Times - Times (The)

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!!

Millions Like Us: The Story of the Mod Revival 1977-1989
•    MILLIONS LIKE US is the first-ever box set to properly document the Mod Revival scene of the late Seventies and Eighties.

•    Across 100 tracks by all the key bands, the story of the Mod Revival is told, from its roots in Punk/New Wave through to its commercial heyday in 1979 with bands like Secret Affair and The Lambrettas and its resurrection in 1985 with The Untouchables and Makin’ Time.

•    The box set is being launched with a special live event at Wimbledon AFC – details TBC.

•    Millions Like Us follows the success of other  genre-defining Cherry Red box sets (e.g. Scared To Get Happy).

•    Many tracks have never been on CD before – and The Upset’s ‘Only For Sheep’ is previously unissued.

•    The box set boasts several Top 40 UK hit singles by Secret Affair, The Chords, The Lambrettas, The Untouchables and The Truth.

•    The Mod scene continues to endure, with several books, films and TV programmes  in 2014 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Mod’s breakthrough back in 1964.

•    The box set boasts lengthy sleeve-notes and numerous rare photos within a substantial booklet.

Please Note: This title is released December 8 and will not be dispatched before this date.
