Beatsongs (2CD) - Blue Aeroplanes

Beatsongs (2CD)
The Blue Aeroplanes burst out of Bristol in 1984, a pyrotechnic blur of dulcimers, bagpipes, turntables, dancing and lots of guitars, all bound together in tendrils of freeform poetry. For a select few they were a revelation, and the debut LP Bop Art was a source of comfort in trying musical times.
In 1989, the band signed a new deal with Ensign, and gained a new audience by touring the UK with long-time admirers REM. Those who witnessed the fourteen-guitar finale at the Hammersmith Odeon - where Stipe, Buck, Berry, Mills, half the road crew, and an assortment of music journalists joined the band on-stage for Breaking in My Heart - still speak in hushed tones. Fresh from this live triumph, the band headed for the studio, and began work on the superlative Swagger LP.
Swagger became the band's biggest critical and commercial success to date, bolstered by their new-found success and recognition, the band headed for LA to record the follow up to Swagger, entitled Beatsongs."The best album to bear a UK postmark in a long, long time" (Select)
This second album on the major label was their highest charting, reaching no. 33 in the UK album charts, this expanded version of the record, combines the album with a bonus disc of rare B-Sides and unreleased tracks all curated by Gerard Langley. Lovingly packaged in the classic Blue Aeroplanes style, this great record can only enforce the legacy of the band that still tour and release albums to this day

Wings Of Joy
Originally released in 1991, the seminal debut from The Cranes, Portsmouth’s most important band, sees its first re-issue on Cherry Red. The album features 7 bonus tracks that accompanied the original release, 4 of which were on a limited edition CD and 3 that were available only as a limited edition 12" with the vinyl version. The CD booklet includes the band's UK Discography from their most productive period when signed to the Dedicated label. The artwork features the original sleeve and new liner notes telling the story of the band's creation, to signing their deal with Dedicated and includes excerpts of the original press reviews of the album from the NME and Melody Maker. Cranes remain a unique band in the modern history of the UK's serious music scene. They were an antidote to the bland and contrived acts that peppered the charts at the time, their experimental approach to making music has a lasting credibility that is still relevant today.

The Independent Singles Collection
Suave; debonair; sophisticated. Haughty, perhaps, for those who favour the pejorative. Aristocratic in more than one sense, classy in at least as many. The Monochrome Set were effortlessly inventive, literate, poised and immaculate of tuneage, possessed of an internal dialogue as a band that allowed them to surf their own narrative. They were just unlike anything else, in layman'sterms. Instead, their sound harked back to a golden era of British pop songwriters. But there was nothing retrogressive about their endeavors. Instead they wrote songs that recreated the drama and promise of a Pearl & Dean interval theme, veering from lullaby to mambo to harmonic pop, accompanied by lush melodies and irresistibly playful lyrics that embraced morbidity at one extreme, and pitch-perfect satire at another.. Brand new release of Monochrome Set'scomplete independent singles collection including b-sides and rare tracks Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim, a long-term fan of the band, has recorded a cover of He's Frank with guest vocals by Iggy Pop and indeed this version has already been broadcast in Heroes.
