The Scattering - Cutting Crew

The Scattering
The second album released by the group, The Scattering represents Cutting Crew's most collaborative effort. Under pressure from their American record company to produce hit singles of the scale of (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight and I've Been In Love Before , the band consolidated and produced what those in the know consider to be their most enjoyable album.

Sadly, a number of business and personal problems meant the record arrived a year later than planned, and the musical landscape had changed in that time, leaving this great package somewhat ignored at the time of its release and, to some degree, undiscovered until now.

Featuring a more direct sound than The Broadcast , and being far less reliant on grandiose production and more on the immediacy of its songs, The Scattering showcases a maturing band who have mastered a sound somewhere between chart friendly AOR and American tinged arena rock.

Broadcast
It has been Cutting Crew's fate to have enjoyed a hugely successful career that will always be remembered for one song, namely their enormous, multi-million selling international hit (I Just) Died In Your Arms.

Having graced every wedding reception in the civilised world, the track has notched up over three million radio plays in North America alone, and forms the centrepiece of this, the band's debut album.

Recorded in both the United States and the UK, the album is a superior example of ambitious, guitar driven mid 80s pop-rock, with extremely strong songwriting and the classic production and ideals of that era present throughout. The record also spawned another huge hit in the shape of I've Been In Love Before , a track which went Top Ten in America and itself boasts over three million radio plays worldwide. Unsurprisingly, the album was also a massive hit, even earning the band a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 1987, and still proves a strong listen twenty three years later.

Maid In England
DIVINE (born Harris Glenn Milstead) was a drag performer who came to prominence as a cult movie star appearing in several John Waters films such as Pink Flamingos, Polyester and Hairspray.
In 1979 Divine released the dance single "Born To Be Cheap”, and although the track didn’t make a huge impact it started a new chapter in his career where he released a succession of camp and fun dance hits which filled the floors of predominantly gay club nights throughout the 80’s.
The compilation MAID IN ENGLAND, released in 1988, was the all-round performers fourth and last LP and features several of Divine’s Hi-NRG and Disco hits including the 1984 UK top 20 hit ‘You Think You’re A Man’ as well as ‘I’m So Beautiful’ (both produced by Stock/Aitken/Waterman) and re-mixes of ‘Walk Like A Man’ and Sam Cooke’s ‘Twistin’ The Night Away’.
DIVINE is hugely respected cult figure in both the film and music world and still a great inspiration to many people due to his exuberant persona and performances.
Cherry Pop is very proud to present MAID IN ENGLAND, expertly remastered and complete with liner notes and bonus tracks.
MAID IN ENGLAND is essential listening for all Hi-NRG, Dance, Disco and Pop fans out there!
