Shotgun Wedding - Lydia Lunch & Rowland S. Howard

Shotgun Wedding
Lydia Lunch-: provocateur, poet, singer, author, performer and actress. From fronting THE influential no-wave group Teenage Jesus and The Jerks (cdmred367) to her current musical incarnation as Big Sexy Noise, with Gallon Drunk’s noise makers James Johnston, Terry Edwards, and Ian White; countless collaborations and projects in between Lydia has never played by anyone’s rules but her own.
This collaboration with the iconic cult figure Rowland S Howard is perhaps one of her most revered. Featuring production by JG Thirwell (Foetus, Manorexia..) and drums by Jim Sclavunos (Bad Seeds, Grinderman..) it’s a veritable who is who of the post punk / no wave scene of the time.
Rowland S Howard is no doubt best known for his work with the Birthday Party, his discordant guitar an essential factor in their sound. Howard sadly passed away from liver cancer in 2009. A hugely influential alternative musician, in 2011 he was subject to a 110 min documentary entitled Autoluminescent, by cult filmmakers Richard Lowenstein, and Lynne Maree Milburn which received independent cinema release. Featuring luminaries such as Nick Cave, Bobby Gillespie, Wim Wenders, and of course…Lydia Lunch, the film highlights Howard’s genius, talent, and rightfully elevates him to the cult status he so deserves.
With both parties at the height of their respective talents, this is an alternative rock gem, yet however maintains an atmosphere of eerie beauty throughout. Out of print for years, this re-promotion is a must have.

Queen of Siam
Queen of Siam was Lydia Lunch first solo outing, and many would say her best. After displaying an unrepeatable angst with Teenage Jesus and The Jerks (cdmred367) Lydia decided to challenge the world and use her art in another way and in doing so coming across as a psychotic sex-kitten sing along to a warped and jazz-like sound-track. The result is astounding, melodic and seductive yet dark and morbid. A noir-musical. Lydia’s magnificent delivery of words is put to full use here, as the lyrics fall from her mouth like liquid yet still retaining the bite and attitude from her former years. With liner notes from none other than lady herself, Lydia writes a memoir of the Queen of Siam period, using thesame acid wit that is apparent in her cult book, Paradoxia. The original cover is used on this release which has never been on CD before, and included in the liner notes are many rare and unseen pictures.

Thirty Thousand Feet Over China
The Passions were one of the most critically respected pop groups of the 80s, best known for their huge hit single I’m In Love With A German Film Star , among the most distinctive, atmospheric records of the era. The group'soriginal studio albums have never before been re - released, but Cherry Red have embarked on that process with this, their second and most commercially successful album, originally released on Polydor Records in 1981. As well as the original album version of I’m In Love With A German Film Star (never before included on any official CD) and the singles The Swimmer and Skin Deep, the package contains five bonus tracks, which again have never been available before. The package has been assembled with completely unpublished photographs from the bands own archive, alongside the memories of all four original members, and a breakdown of the rationale and recording of each and every track.

God
Named after a Roland Kirk album, RIP RIG + PANIC were one of the most exciting bands of the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole.
With lead singer NENEH CHERRY, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on CD.
All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles.
Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.
Issued in 1981, GOD was RIP RIG + PANIC’s debut album, issued as a club-friendly 12” double-pack. It’s now swelled by the non-album singles ‘Go, Go, Go! (This Is It)’ and ‘Bob Hope Takes Risks’ and their B-sides plus the NME cassette track ‘Billy Eckstine’s Shirt Collar’.

Guiding the production of these reissues, Mark Springer is still heavily involved in the world of music and art. More information can be found at www.markspinger.net and www.exit.co.uk
