Like Gangbusters : Expanded Edition - Jo Boxers

Like Gangbusters : Expanded Edition
Released on 30th of January 2012. Formed when an expatriate American singer got together with former members of legendary punk outfit Subway Sect, JOBOXERS became a sensation in the 1983 with a Northern Soul infused pop sound.

JOBOXERS' first and biggest UK hit was the #3 smash BOXERBEAT, which was followed months later by the #7 hit JUST GOT LUCKY. This second single also reached the charts in Australia and USA, where it made a big enough impression to be selected for the soundtrack of the Steve Carell comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin over 20 years later.

JOBOXERS' debut album LIKE GANGBUSTERS reached the US Pop charts and became a Top 20 hit in the UK in addition to producing a third consecutive UK Top 40 hit single in the form of JOHNNY FRIENDLY. A Further non album single JEALOUS LOVE gave the band their fourth hit of an amazing debut year. In addition to containing the now rare original 7" and 12" remixes, this 20 track expanded remaster also contains rare b-sides Let's Talk About Love, Why Don't You Do Right (Get Me Some Money Too) and Forget Me Love as well as the hit JEALOUS LOVE, of which the studio version makes it’s CD debut here.

Press:-

"(this album) showcases a band that were more than just a couple of chart hits. Riproaring piano player Dave Gollard’s work fires most of the album, and the success of current acts like Caro Emerald and Paloma Faith suggests JoBoxers’ output deserves a second glance”.

Daily Express / January 2012 / Dave Esson

"Their image was as striking as their sound, with 1920s-esque working class style and a sound that mixed Northern Soul and pop on the likes of ‘Boxerbeat’, as well as following charting singles ‘Just Got Lucky’ and ‘Johnny Friendly’.

Vive Le Rock / Issue 6 / Gem Pitt   

"It’s a brash, eclectic set that’s well worth reappraisal, particularly second single Just Got Lucky.”

Eventide 2CD
Fronted by talented songwriter Billy Franks and his lifelong friend from Fulham Court, Lee Hirons, the Faith Brothers were one of the most hotly-tipped bands of 1985. Their impassioned brand of blue-eyed soul attracted comparisons with The Style Council and the Spencer Davis Group while their socialist views linked them in the media with the likes of Billy Bragg and the Redskins.
Eventide was the Faith Brothers’ debut album, issued on Siren Records in 1985. It reached the Top 75 and included the singles ‘Eventide’ and ‘Whistling In The Dark’ but omitted by their popular radio hits from earlier that year, ‘Country Of The Blind’ and ‘A Stranger On Home Ground’.
Amazingly, Eventide has never before been issued on CD!
This deluxe 2-CD set expands the original 11-track album with a bonus disc of 15 further tracks, adding those missing singles as well as their pre-Siren indie debut ‘A Tradesman’s Entrance’ and a demo version of ‘Newtown’ which graced a flexidisc free with Jamming! magazine.
The Faith brothers were championed by Jamming!’s editor Tony Fletcher, who eventually became their manager. Now a successful author (Keith Moon, The Smiths, REM), Tony has written a heartfelt foreword for this long-overdue reissue.
Compiled with the help of Billy and Lee (and remastered with TLC by Lee), this 2-CD expanded edition boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and extracts from Billy’s hilarious yet touching autobiography A Far Cry From Sunset.
