Ain't That Far From Boothill - Boothill Foot-Tappers (The)

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.

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. Our Price: £9.95
