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 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

Now For A Feast : EXPANDED 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
In 1986, Pop Will Eat Itself burst onto the UK and European independent scene with a flurry of energetic, punk infused singles, including their self pressed and distributed debut, Poppies Say GRRrrr! and others released by Chapter 22. During that year they became mainstays of the UK music press and blazed a trail towards the hip-hop tinged direction they would take with their second album, Box Frenzy . This set charts this first year of the band's career, including seven previously unheard demos and live cuts from the band's own archives and a number of later b-sides. Including a previously unreleased song ( Summer Girl ), early incarnations of tracks re-recorded and released in later years and demos of the impossible to find debut EP by Wild and Wandering (the name the band operated under before becoming PWEI), this really is a treasure trove for fans and collectors.

Produced with full co-operation and support from the band members, and including both an essay and sleeve-notes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole, as well as never before seen archive shots and press clippings, this package is the first in a series of Cherry Red Pop Will Eat Itself reissues which will take in the band's entire catalogue, tell their story and see the release of dozens of unreleased, rare and never before on CD tracks.This unique band, whose influence touched the careers of acts such as The Prodigy and Nine Inch Nails, still has a large, strong following worldwide, and there is an active online community who have shown great interest in these titles thus far. A new PWEI album will be released this year, and the current incarnation of the group will be touring in support of this release, no doubt including plenty of their back catalogue in their set. Seven previously unheard recordings, Two rare B-sides Sleeve-notes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole Archive photographs and press clippings Packaged with reversible US/UK original artwork.

Press:-

"Their earliest indie rock scuzz is collected on ‘88’s Now For A Feast!, by which time ‘87’s Box Frenzy had incorporated sampling and other hip hop moves into proto-indie dance off daffy joie de vivre. Both come engorged with bonuses, some of which seem to have been mastered off old cassettes.”  

-Ian Harrison (Q Magazine – November 2011)

Freaky Trigger
After the demise of Edinburgh cult band Fire Engines in 1982, founder and lead singer/ guitarist Davey Henderson placed his finger firmly on the freaky trigger of eighties pop gun WIN. Managed by the Postcard label sheriff Alan Horne. One of the great lost bands of the eighties, WIN were so much the sum of the decade s parts, it was obvious their time would not come until the decade was dead and buried. With continued interest in Fire Engines , much interest in Henderson s recent bands, the Nectarine No. 9 and the Sexual Objects , WIN look set for a timely re-evaluation.Following a trash course of Prince, Marilyn Monroe and Pope John Paul the First, WIN s second album, Freaky Trigger, was produced by Zeus B. Held - a name at the helm of many a classic eighties production (Fashion - Fabrique / Dead Or Alive - Sophisticated Boom Boom / Transvision Vamp – Pop Art/Velveteen). This first ever re-issue includes the original Virgin Records 1989 release - featuring singles What ll You Do Til Sunday Baby, Dusty Heartfelt and Love Units with it’s remarkable Prince like 12 extended mix - complete with bonus flips from the same period. It has tunes with more hooks than Lady GaGa has looks as well as cheeky in tongue lyrics to boot, and a glistening 80’s Glam chic.
