Skyscraping: Expanded Edition - ABC

Skyscraping: Expanded Edition

· ABC has its roots in the band Vice Versa, a Sheffield band formed in 1977 by Stephen Singleton and Mark White. They founded their own label, Neutron Records, releasing the EP Music 4. Martin Fry, who wrote the fanzine Modern Drugs, interviewed Vice Versa and shortly afterwards they asked him to join as synthesizer player. Fry accepted and by 1980 the band had evolved into ABC, with Fry becoming lead vocalist.

· The album was released in 1997, as a homage to lead singer Martin Fry's several musical heroes, including David Bowie, Roxy Music and The Sex Pistols.

· The line-up of ABC then consisting of Martin Fry, Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17 and Keith Lowndes, the album was met with positive reviews from critics rather than broad commercial success.

· This re-issue - done in conjunction with the band -contains liner notes by Daryl Easlea who talked extensively to the members of the band about the creation of the record.

· It contains a newly re-mastered album as well as a disc of B-Sides from the singles released at the time.

Walk Under Ladders
Released on 25/01/10. Eighth LP from legendary UK singer songwriter, originally issued in 1981. Second album in her late 70s / early 80s newfound pop direction, produced by the legendary Steve Lillywhite.

Now with three bonus tracks previously only issued on vinyl as part of the Weakness In Me EP.

The seventies produced a string of great albums, mostly tinged with an acoustic, jazzy, even folky flavour, until, in the late 70's and early 80's she found her way into a more pop orientated sound, which is the point at which this collection finds her. Produced by the ever reliable Steve Lillywhite, "Walk Under Ladders" was Joan's eighth LP and comfortably reached the UK's Top Ten, and peaking at number 6 on its release in 1981. A set of solid, catchy and artistically respectable songs, this album established the artist as a versatile figurehead at the beginning of the decade.

Our Price: £9.95
