The Story So Far - Mo-Dettes

The Story So Far
Released 27/11/08. The Mo-dettes were NEVER a Mod band can we just clear that up? Instead, they were formed as part of the punk explosion, with former members having been part of the London squat community, numbering Joe Strummer and Sid Vicious among their housemates. Indeed, the genesis of the band came about while drummer June Miles-Kingston and guitarist Kate Corris were assisting Malcolm McLaren and Julien Temple on the set of The Great Rock ’n’ Roll Swindle. All this and more is explored in the accompanying booklet, in which both Kate and June talk at length about their time with the Mo-dettes. So we get the inside story on encountering rednecks in the American south, facing equally patronising attitudes in the studio and finally, what to do when your roadie wants to date your singer. The band also featured Jane Crockford on bass famous for the punk cannibalism incident when she bit the ear of Shane McGowan at a Clash gig and Swiss singer Ramona.

Leave the Straight Life Behind: Expanded Edition
Legend has it that a chance meeting with John Peel in the Rough Trade record shop set Bob on the road to becoming a true indie favourite in the late 80s and early 90s, with Peel championing the band throughout their career. 

Starting life in 1986, the band released a series of acclaimed singles, and with each single release, they toured and promised an album.  Eventually they got enough money together to release Leave The Straight Life Behind on their own House Of Teeth label in 1991. 

The album met with rave reviews but due to the collapse of Rough Trade Distribution it was frustratingly difficult to find.  Now available again for the first time in many years, the album has been expanded to 2CDs, with a second disc including all four of their Radio 1 sessions, 3 for John Peel and 1 for Simon Mayo. 

·       Unavailable for many years
·       Second disc includes all their BBC sessions, including 3 Peel Sessions
·       16 previously unreleased tracks
·       Extensive packaging includes sleevenotes by the band, rare photos and memorabilia from the band’s archive

Bob was formed in 1986 by Richard Blackborow (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Simon Armstrong (guitar, vocals), Jem Morris and a drum machine.  Gary Connors replaced the drum machine only to be replaced himself in 1988 by Dean Leggett, who had drummed for Jamie Wednesday, the outfit that spawned Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine.  Morris was replaced by Stephen Hersom prior to Leave The Straight Life Behind.  Following the various pieces of bad luck that befell the band, they became disillusioned with the industry and finally split in 1995, leaving a legacy of eight singles, one compilation of early singles, the album and a legion of happy fans who had been lucky enough to see them live.  The single ‘Convenience’ graced the John Peel Festive Fifty in 1989.

Here There or Anywhere - 23 Mod Pop Classics 1982-1986
•    THE DIRECT HITS were active on the 60s and Mod Revival circuit for the first half of the 1980s, issuing a string of now highly collectable records.

•    Having evolved out of new wave band The Exits, THE DIRECT HITS formed around 1981 and signed to Whaam! Records, the label run by TV Personalities frontman Dan Treacy.

•    Alongside ‘Modesty Blaise’ are tracks from their cult debut album Blow Up, issued on Whaam! in 1984, 1985 single ‘She Really Didn’t Care’, rare live tracks and a few selections from their second album House Of Secrets.

Halcyon Days - Complete Recordings 1985-1987
•    Hailing from Sheffield and named after an Orange Juice lyric, ONE THOUSAND VIOLINS evolved out of indie-pop duo The Page Boys, signing to Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld label in 1985. The band revolved around songwriters Colin Gregory and Dave Walmsley, who were influenced by the best in Sixties music.
 
•    Debut single ‘Halcyon Days’ won rave reviews and B-side ‘Like One Thousand Violins’ made John Peel’s Festive 50 that year. Second single, the more psychedelic-sounding ‘Please Don’t Sandblast My House’, made the Indie Chart in late 1986.

•    Their next single, ‘Ungrateful Bastard’, was issued on German label Constrictor and still made the Indie Top 30. The label also issued two mini-LPs by the band. After a final single for Dreamworld, ‘Locked Out Of The Love-In’, ONE THOUSAND VIOLINS issued ‘If I Were A Bullet’ on Report at the end of 1987.

•    Compiled with involvement from founding members Colin Gregory and John Wood, Halcyon Days offers the band’s complete recorded output from 1985 to 1987, prior to the band changing their line-up and sound. Many of these tracks are new to CD.
