Tell God I'm Here (Expanded) - Hurrah!

Tell God I'm Here (Expanded)
Originally known as the Green-Eyed Children, Hurrah! consisted of Paul Handyside-guitar/vocals, David ‘Taffy’ Hughes-guitar/vocals, David Porthouse-bass and Mark Sim-drums.    Switching to the moniker of Hurrah!, the quartet signed to the new Kitchenware Records label in 1982. Mark Sim soon departed to be replaced by Damien Mahoney, whereupon a series of acclaimed singles such as ‘The Sun Shines Here’ and ‘Hip Hip’ earned the band great respect from the British Independent sector. Based upon the pivotal force of the singing/guitar-playing/songwriting partnership of Paul Handyside and David Hughes, Hurrah! mastered a jittery, urgent style rich in melodic content.   By 1986, however, the band had pushed their sound towards a rockier terrain, replacing the initial charm with power and passion. Damien Mahoney left to join the police force in the spring of that year, allowing Steve Price to fill the vacant drum stool. Their debut ‘Tell God I’m Here’ saw the light of day in 1987, swiftly followed by a support date with U2 at London’s Wembley stadium but commercial success remained elusive   This glorious package is housed in a digi-pack with full and informative sleeve-notes and features some rare memorabilia.   Re-mastered from the original tapes, this is the first European release for these titles.

The Beautiful
Hurrah! were of course Kitchenware label-mates of Prefab Sprout and this is their follow up to the first album "Tell God I'm Here” and it is a cracker!   Hurrah! were quite simply ahead of their time; they created pure and extraordinary pop - the way it should be. Four individuals intent on extreme personal expression who just had to play together like this. What you hear HERE is a direct result of the collective attitude/stance…wrought from very personal experience. Pure emotion + Pure expression = Soul.   Recorded in 1989 - it has a distinctively guitar-led sound that coupled to some strong songs, makes it a lost work of art.   It was produced by Simon Hanhart, who has also worked with the likes of Bryan Adams, Elton John, Asia and Saxon.

The House Of Love 3CD Deluxe Edition
THE HOUSE OF LOVE were one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands to grace Creation Records back in the late 1980s.
Their eponymous debut album was cited as one of the best albums of 1988 by music magazines and Indie fans alike. It has been out-of-print on CD for some time now.
This deluxe edition of THE HOUSE OF LOVE offers the band’s complete Creation recordings from 1987-1988, together with a raft of previously unissued bonus material.
The package boasts all their Creation Records singles, from the original version of ‘Shine On’, ‘Real Animal’ and the US favourite ‘Christine’ (which reached #8 in the Modern Rock chart there) to their final single for the label, ‘Destroy The Heart’.
Disc 3 is devoted to nineteen hitherto unheard HOUSE OF LOVE demos, including two exclusive Guy Chadwick songs ‘Hold On Me’ and ‘Modern World’, which were never released!
Also making their debut on CD is the rare 7” album freebie (two demos) and the ‘Flexidisc’ version of ‘Shine On’, together with Guy’s original demo of this song which eventually gave them a sizeable hit.

This 3-CD package is housed in a stylish Digipak with fresh sleeve-notes and rare images from the band’s photographer Suzie Gibbons.

Press: "Here was a band who knew just how good they were... If you don't already own The House Of Love, buy it." - Michael Hann, The Guardian, 24/11/2012

"Two super serving discs of extras include single tracks...plus fan-pleasing alternate takes and intriguing demos..." - MOJO, December 2012
