Hold On Inside, Complete Recordings 1991-1986 2CD - 14 Iced Bears

Hold On Inside, Complete Recordings 1991-1986 2CD
Brighton’s 14 ICED BEARS emerged in 1986 as part of the C86 generation of Indie-Pop bands.
Early singles ‘Inside’ (1986) and ‘Balloon Song’ (1987) were quintessential jangly guitar nuggets, issued on ex-TVPs bassist Mark Flunder’s Frank label.
After an EP Come Get Me for the impeccably cool Sarah Records, they signed to Thunderball in 1988 for more psychedelic ‘World I Love’ and ‘Mother Sleep’ and eponymous debut album.
1991’s second LP Wonder was a more sprawling, adventurous creation (close to shoegazer territory) but 14 Iced Bears split soon after. They reunited in 2010 and have since played Indietracks and some shows in the USA.
HOLD ON INSIDE is the first retrospective to offer their complete output from 1986-1991, albeit presented in reverse order, as if travelling back in time – very psychedelic!
Compiled by 14 Iced Bears singer/songwriter/guitarist Rob Sekula, this 2-CD boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

John Peel’s enthusiasm was clearly evident: "I like these Iced Bears, all fourteen of them!"

Alexis Petridis, head music critic at the Guardian said: "I genuinely think 14 Iced Bears' eponymous debut album is a bit of a lost psych classic."

"This 19 track compilation brings together some of their finest moments, including debut single ‘Like An Angel’ and blissed out, melody soaked tunes such as ‘Into The Heart of Love’, ‘Rollercoaster’, ‘My Biggest Thrill’, ‘Inside Out’ and the 13th Floor Elevators classic ‘Splash #1’. Songs from their first four albums, as well as EP tracks, singles and b-sides, this was the sound of the Mighty Lemon Drops at their peak.

If Wishes Were Horses
Released on 18/01/10. Blueboy's first album, originally released in 1992, will be reissued on El Records. In keeping with the Sarah tradition, the original album was an 8-track mini-album with no singles or previously / later released tracks, but it is re-released with addition of the band s first four singles and their B-sides as a 19-track album. All of this material has been unavailable, except for download, since around the time Sarah shut up shop in 1995. Blueboy were formed by lyricist and singer, Keith Girdler, and songwriter and guitarist, Paul Stewart in Reading in the early 1990s. Since meeting around a decade earlier, Paul and Keith had been in various bands together before Blueboy, and had sent previous demos to Sarah. However, it was the demo for Clearer, which was released in 1991 as their first single, which got them their deal. Whilst their initial releases were gentle and acoustic, they expanded into a full band, with bass, drums, keyboards and cello, and eventually including Harvey Williams on guitar. Their later albums will be reissued on EL Records, of which Keith and Paul were both huge fans, over the coming months. Our Price: £9.95

The Huge World Of Emily Small
Released 19/10/09. A hugely improved sound quality re-master based on the Japanese CD edition of The Huge World of Emily Small CD. One of those albums that just seems to have slipped under the radar of most UK pop psych collectors. The band (essentially a duo lead by Rod Edwards and Roger Hand, who would later record as Edwards Hand) flourished briefly in the late 60's releasing this one album. With them is the cream of UK session men including Danny Thompson (bass), Alan Hawkshaw (keys), Herbie Flowers (bass) and Harold McNair (flute). The Picadilly Line even managed an appearance at The Middle Earth club in London, the then hallowed centre of the UK psychedelic scene. The album is breezy post Sergeant Pepper psychedelic pop with plenty of swinging London vibes, orchestration and evocative whimsical lyrics.

Our Price: £9.95
