The Lambrettas were at the forefront of the Mod Revival of 1979/1980. Discovered by Pete Waterman, the band signed to Elton John’s Rocket label and enjoyed significant chart success. Their biggest hit was a cover of The Coasters Poison Ivy, recorded with a nod to the prevailing 2-Tone trend. The single peaked at No. 7 in March 1980. The Lambrettas charted again with the follow-up, Da-a-a-ance, hit No. 12 that May. Debut LP Beat Boys In The Jet Age peaked at No. 28. The band issued several more singles and a second LP, Ambience, before disbanding in 1982.

After the sad death of original single Jez Bird, a new line-up of The Lambrettas went back out on the road in 2010 to a enthusiastic response. This 2-CD set boasts everything that The Lambrettas recorded for Rocket between 1979 and 1982. This material has been out of circulation for several years now, with the previous such collection commanding top prices on Amazon and eBay.

This is the first time that their hit debut album has been presented as a Deluxe Edition.

Disc 1 contains the entire debut album plus several bonus tracks from contemporaneous singles A’s and B’s. Disc 2 offers second album Ambience, once again swelled by non-LP material. The sleeve-notes offer a fresh insight into the Lambrettas story from original guitarist Doug Sanders, who now fronts the band.

The Best Of The Flatmates
The Flatmates released five singles between 1986 and 1988. Their singles all reached the upper regions of the UK Indie Chart, culminating with a number one placing for "Shimmer". Formed in Bristol in summer 1985, by Martin Whitehead, proprietor at the time of a weekly indie venue called The Mission Club, and "Rocker", the city's most notorious music fan. Lacking inspiration for an esoteric name, they adopted the tag stuck on them by their friends - "the flatmates". As part of the first wave of the mid-eighties resurgence of guitar-pop, they ran (and gigged) with the C86 crowd, but spurned the coy affectations of "cutism". Taking a cue from the Modern Lovers their first demos featured covers of Velvet Underground and Stooges songs. Echoes of the Shangri Las and Ronettes run through their tunes - part of a musical heritage that treads the line where classic, concise, tuneful pop meets the attitude and anarchy of rock'n'roll. If the Flatmates bore the influence of any one band though, it was their spiritual godfathers, The Ramones, to whom they paid tribute in the form of "I Don't Care". The Flatmates arrived at a time when pop was shiny and nice girls didn't play in rock bands. They never made it to the pop charts, but shortly after their demise, the likes of The Primitives, The Sundays, The Darling Buds, Lush and Elastica did.
