Outernational - Billy MacKenzie

Outernational
A timely reissue of Billy MacKenzie's first solo album 'Outernational' plus bonus tracks. William MacArthur "Billy" MacKenzie first came to musical prominence through his involvement in the much loved band The Associates in the early 80's. This was his first album release after the split with fellow Associate, Alan Rankine.
The album was originally released in 1992 on Circa Records.
This CD contains the two singles taken from the album, 'Baby' and 'Colours Will Come'.
The CD features the ten tracks of the original album release and four bonus tracks including mixes/remixes of 'Colours Will Come - US 60659 Mix' by Larry Heard, 'Feels Like The Richtergroove' by Mike Koglin, 'Look What You've Done - Marital Mix' and the beautiful 'Because You Love'.
The CD booklet features an expanded version of the original artwork and includes a detailed UK discography and sleeve notes.
The album has been digitally remastered for this release.
Speaking of the 'Outernational' album to Record Collector magazine in 1994 MacKenzie gave his impression of the album "I think it has a glacial beauty. It doesn't always have to be demonstrative. Fire can burn, but so can ice. And that would direct the attention to the lyrical content as well. Some of it had a lot of religious connotations, like "Colours Will Come". I think that it's an emotionally detached album in some ways, but it also has a strong message. Maybe it appeared like I wasn't trying or expressing, or that there was a block. But it wasn't. There was a calmness and a lot of beauty in that album.
Billy MacKenzie passed away aged 39 on January 22nd 1997 leaving a lasting musical legacy.

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.

The Many Moods of
Released 23/03/09. The sole album release by the infamous Murry Wilson, father of the beach boys three wilson brothers. A suite of orchestral pop instrumentals, including a Brian Wilson production, a cover of warmth of the sun , an Al Jardine original and material written by Wilson Snr himself. Recorded in la in 1967, this album is an intriguing insight into the mindset of this unique, much discussed character of legend. A must for any beach boys fan or collector, the many moods of Murry Wilson is presented here in its very rare stereo mix and packaged in a digipak with an 8 page booklet containing comprehensive sleeve-notes, production info etc. Huge collector’s potential for this much overlooked piece of the jigsaw puzzle that is the Beach Boys story. The vinyl album commands consistently high prices among collectors when it does appear, but has become an increasingly rare presence at record fairs, on ebay etc. Our Price: £9.95
