La Varieté
La Varieté was the 1982 debut album by Weekend, formed by Alison Statton of much-loved Welsh avant-garde/indie pioneers the Young Marble Giants alongside guitarists Simon Booth and Spike. A beautifully realised and delicate collection of songs set against a jazz backdrop, it switches across myriad musical settings including samba, cabaret, Afrobeat and highly personal, confessional pop. The album was originally released in 1982 on the Rough Trade label and made it to No 4 in the independent charts staying in there for 15 weeks. It was revered by critics on release as a bold new departure from the prevailing post-punk ethos and served as a major influence on Saint Etienne, the Sundays, Belle And Sebastian and many others. This comprehensive reissue features nine bonus tracks, including demos and 12-inch versions of singles ‘A View From Her Room’ and ‘Drumbeat For Baby’, and liner notes prepared by the band itself.

Seduction
The Danse Society were a very special band formed in the early 1980's. They experimented musically with sound and attitude and released their music through their own label, Society Records, a very bold move at that time. During the eighties, the Danse Society created a reputation for lush and atmospheric sounds that separated them from the rest of the gothic scene at the time. The innovative and creative use of keyboards was the element gave the band their distinctive sound. This is a collection of Danse Society's material from their early and most respected days on their own Society label. The backbone for the album is the ultra rare and collectable 'Seduction' album that was released in 1982 along with tracks from their highly acclaimed 12 singles Somewhere/ Hide and Woman's Own. Other tracks include their first single Clock with classics These Frayed Eyes and The Seduction also featured. All featured titles are available on CD for the first time. The CD features the original 'Seduction' LP cover along with the other sleeves from the Society Records period. Sleeve notes have been written by Danse Society keyboardist, Lyndon Scarfe and also included is a complete discography of the band.
