Let's Get The Hell Back To Lubbock - Terry & Gerry

Let's Get The Hell Back To Lubbock
Cherry Red Records are delighted to announce the release of the recorded works (B sides and alternate versions/mixes included) of Birmingham's greatest political romantics skiffle combo, Terry & Gerry. The bastard offspring of Lonnie Donegan, Buddy Holly, and indeed Country Joe & The Fish, with a diploma from the Billy Bragg school of social politics, a healthy cynicism about fashion trends, and a heart with a bruise the size of a broken love affair, Terry Lilly and Gerry Colvin effervesced on to the scene in September 1984 and for one brief shining moment (four years actually), the future of music was a double bass, a battered guitar and a washboard. Although they never broke through to commercial success, Terry & Gerry were one of England's most exciting bands of the '80s. Their demo tape resulted in a high-profile BBC session with popular disc jockey and producer John Peel and tours in Holland, Belgium, the United States, and the United Kingdom. According to the London Sunday Times, "if some of their act has the nostalgic pleasure of a '50s revivalist group, like the Darts, the rest of it is increasingly topical. Even their cowboy and Indian songs have social bite and political numbers, like "The Last Bullet in the Gun" have the plangent authority of an Elvis Costello." Features "From Lubbock To Clintwood East" LP, plus all the singles, B sides, alternate versions, live tracks and an EP! Extended sleeve notes written by Mike Davies (Ex-Melody Maker) and lovingly restored and re-packaged in true Cherry Red Records style.

Ain't That Far From Boothill
Fire up the Tardis. Back we go in time to 1983, when the streets of London are the preserve of dapper New Romantics, posing at Blitz, reading The Face and spending ozone frightening amounts on hair lacquer. Well, to be fair, Camden’s Boothill Foot-Tappers got through a fair amount of hair lacquer too one of their three female singers was a professional hairdresser, after all but in every other way they were the antithesis of the 80s style over content ethos. Instead, the Booties played hundreds of gigs, often in support of left wing causes, but were always tremendous fun rather than preachy. The music was famously described as Cow-Punk , and, alongside the Pogues, Men They Couldn’t Hang and a handful of others, they rejuvenated the live scene. Songs drew on traditional roots elements (banjo, fiddle, squeezebox) but injected the DIY/Anti-Authoritarian mindset of punk, leading to riotous live gigs and this, their sole album, which has been packaged with attendant singles and bonus tracks.

The Rise And Fall Of Honesty
Released on 29/03/10. A masterpiece of psychedelic Americana: Maffitt & Davies came with the same batch of oddities on Capitol as Euphoria, Food and Common People. A strange batch to be sure, of orchestral psychpop and folk-rock which is only now being rediscovered and loved... There are many gems on this exceptional album... Bob Dylan’s Just Like A Woman is transformed into heartbreaking orchestrated folkrock... Forest Lawn, the album’s undeservedly failed single, has a distinct Face to Face Kink¹s sound replete with dobro and freaky church organ. Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues the other Dylan cover on this record takes a Byrds/Everly Brothers vocal harmony approach reminiscent of nothing less than late 60s Dillards on their folk-rock outings. A visionary slice of American music that predates the alt. country/folk boom by a mile -dark lyrics, strings, phasing and tablas abound. In addition to the album, we have a batch of outtakes and single tracks which will take your breath away; all in all a wonderful new discovery.... Our Price: £9.95

Stone Country
Stone Country the Hollywood, CA-based psychedelic country-rock outfit led by gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist Steve Young. Young had moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and began working with Van Dyke Parks and Stephen Stills while keeping his day job as a mailman. He formed Stone Country in 1967 and soon thereafter the band was signed to RCA Records. After releasing several singles, RCA issued the group's only album, Stone Country, in March 1968, produced by Rick Jarrard, who also produced Jefferson Airplane and Harry Nilsson's Pandemonium Shadow Show. The group disbanded when, in 1969, Young signed as a solo artist with A&M Records. This is there only and debut album, a fantastic record that is a must have for any one with even the slightest interest in things of psychedelic or country nature. Our Price: £9.95
