Dos Dedos Mis Amigos/A Lick of the Old Cassette Box - Pop Will Eat Itself

Dos Dedos Mis Amigos/A Lick of the Old Cassette Box
By 1994, Pop Will Eat Itself had developed from indie dancefloor friendly rock rappers into an angry, proto industrial machine. Signed to a new independent label, Infectious Records, they continued their steady stream of hit singles ('Ich Bin Ein Auslander', 'RSVP', 'Everything's Cool') and began to make serious inroads in America, thanks to their association with Trent Reznor and his Nothing label.

'Dos Dedos Mis Amigos' charted around Europe and in the US, and saw the band's profile rise considerably. The tracks also spawned a successful double album of remixes, 'Two Fingers My Friends', in 1995 and a follow up album was hotly anticipated. However, after the departure of Graham Crabb the band gradually imploded, leaving a new album's worth of recordings unreleased. Until now.

Produced in conjunction with the band, 'A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box' compiles twelve unreleased songs recorded in 1995 and 1996, and heard here for the very first time. Heavy on riffs and beats, this is the blueprint for the industrial crossover sound The Prodigy were about to fill stadiums around the world with in the late 1990s. Accompanied by detailed liner notes from guitarist Adam Mole, this 'lost' album is a must hear for diehards and casual fans alike.

This Is The Day…This Is The Hour…This Is This! Expanded Edition
Following a series of independent chart successes released on Chapter 22 Records, PWEI were, in 1988, signed to BMG and produced this, arguably their most iconic album. Boasting indie dance-floor classics ‘Def Con One’ and ‘Can U Dig It?’, as well as a number of other standout tracks and fan favourites (‘Wise Up! Sucker’, ‘Preaching To The Perverted’ etc), this record took the band’s appeal beyond the UK and into America and Australia, as well as furthering interest throughout Europe. A furious blend of dance, hip-hop, rock and techno, "This Is This” was truly ahead of it’s time, and blazed a trail that would eventually lead to The Prodigy and several other rock-techno acts who thrived during the early 1990s.

Expanded here into a 2CD edition, and produced in conjunction with the band themselves, this incredible package features a plethora of b-sides, rare remixes, demos (from the band’s archives) and never before heard tracks from the BMG archives, including the legendary lost ‘Very Metal Noise Pollution’ EP 12” mixes, early versions of two of the album’s singles and an early recording of a track from 1990’s follow up album "The PWEI Cure For Sanity”.

Added to this, the package features sleeve-notes by the band’s own Adam Mole, an essay on this period of their career and some fantastic archive images. All reissues should be of this standard.

A must have package for any PWEI fan, and a brilliant showcase of a remarkable album. This record has international appeal and promises to put the band’s trailblazing career under the microscope again.

A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box (The Lost 1996 Album) Limited Edition Vinyl

PLEASE NOTE THIS ITEM HAS NOW SOLD OUT!!

Limited Edition of 200 Orange Vinyl In recycled manila, stickered sleeve

Prior to their disbanding in 1996, a new look Pop Will Eat Itself, with Clint Mansell now the sole vocalist, wrote and recorded the bulk of what was to be a new album for release at some point that year. Informed by recent forays into America and involvement with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, the new material saw the band unwittingly lay down a blueprint for the arena filling industrial/electro crossover which was to dominate the latter half of the decade at the hands of Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Marilyn Manson, NIN and co, whilst retaining their own inimitable style; a sound laden with heavy riffs, choice samples, angry synthesisers, processed vocals and a collage of live and programmed drums. Sadly, though, the band would be pulled apart by forces beyond their control before the record's completion, and those recordings were destined to sit in the vaults for seventeen years. until now. 

Sourced and compiled in collaboration with Adam Mole and Clint Mansell, 'A Lick Of The Old Cassette Box' compiles twelve of those tracks to finally produce that 'lost' album. A natural successor to 1994's 'Dos Dedos Mis Amigos' set, and featuring the 'should-have-been' single 'T+A=$', along with a handful of songs the band performed live during a final run of shows in 1996, '...Cassette Box' provides both a perfect bookend to the band's recorded career and a tantalising glimpse of what might have been, had the stars aligned in their favour.

A must for die-hards and any scholars on '90s British independent music, and pressed here on extremely limited orange vinyl, this is a surefire collector's item of the future, and sure to sell out very quickly.

The CD version of this album is available here - http://www.cherryred.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=4293

The Curse of The Higsons: Deluxe Edition

· The Higsons were founded in 1980 at the University of East Anglia by Charlie ‘Switch’ Higson, Terry Edwards, Simon Charterton, Colin Williams, Dave Cummings and Stuart McGeachin. Over a string of Indie singles and an album, they married disjointed punk/funk rhythms and warbling vocals in a style which betrayed their love of Talking Heads.

 

· After singles on local Norwich-based labels like Romans In Britain and Waap and two releases for 2Tone, the band signed to Upright for long-overdue album The Curse Of The Higsons in 1984. Charlie later excelled as a comedian and writer (not least in The Fast Show) while Terry has seemingly played every instrument with myriad different bands.

 

· Long out-of-print, The Curse Of The Higsons is now treated to a deluxe 3-CD set, compiled, mastered and approved by Terry Edwards and the rest of the band.

 

· This expanded version adds all the versions/tracks which graced their two collectable singles for 2Tone (‘Tear The Whole Thing Down’ and ‘Run Me Down’), plus other singles ‘Push Out The Boat’, their charming cover of Andy Williams’ ‘Music To Watch Girls By’ and a demo of their swansong, ‘Take It’, from 1985.

 

· As a bonus third disc, the hitherto cassette-only album Live At The Jacquard Club, Norwich makes its digital debut. Issued on Chaos Tapes, it is now swelled by five tracks from a Lyceum show in 1984, three of which are previously unissued..

 

Members of The Higsons, including Charlie, will be speaking about the band’s history as part of celebrations for UEA's 50th anniversary over the last weekend of September.
