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.

  • Contains three UK hit singles, demos and selected b-sides and remixes.
  • Also contains an entire unreleased album
  • Detailed essey and liner notes from guitarist Adam Mole
  • Produced in conjunction with the band, including edits and track sequencing by Clint

Assassins
Released 27/11/08. Into a Circle, formed by Bee and Barry Jepson following the split of former band Getting The Fear (themselves the Cult minus Ian Astbury), were broadly linked with the 80s Gothic movement. But in truth there was much more to them than that and their shows, right out on the edge of convention, stirred a passionate worldwide following; audiences charmed by the radiant Bee’s songwriting and range of expression. Subjects tackled included religion, ritual, sexual identity and conformity. All to a background reading of Gysin, Burroughs and a highly advanced grasp of Arabic and Asian cultures. This comprehensive document of the group’s recordings for Abstract brings Assassins back to the shelves for the first time on CD. The album is augmented by bonus tracks including numerous b-side and 12-inch remixes, as well as the groups debut independent single, Rise. Our Price: £2.49
Retail 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.”

Box Frenzy: EXPANDED 2011 EDITION
In 1987, Pop Will Eat Itself surprised the independent music world by morphing overnight from two minute, three chord indie pop wonders into hip-hop rock crossover pioneers. Years ahead of their time, PWEI produced Box Frenzy , a furiousmix of beatboxes, metal riffs, MC ing and pop songs. Featuring the notorious Beaver Patrol single, and the hugely successful There IsNo Love Between UsAnymore , the album brought the band a whole new audience and opened them up to as much praise as it did ridicule amongst a perplexed music press.Produced with the band’s assistance and approval, and featuring three never before heard home demos and three rare, never before on CD tracks, as well as an extensive sleeve essay, sleevenotes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole and a wealth of unseen photographs, press clippings and so on, this release is a treasure trove for fans and collectors alike.

This package is the second 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 these back catalogue tracks in their set. Three previously unheard home demos, Three rare, never before on CD tracks, Sleeve-notes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole.

The Looks Or The Lifestyle-Expanded Edition
In 1992, PWEI took the radical step of recruiting a drummer, one Fuzz Townsend.  After honing their hip hop / techno / rock fusion over three previous albums, "The Looks Or The Lifestyle” saw them take a more traditional, ‘song’ orientated approach, whilst managing to retain their live popularity and increase their commercial success. The record bore several hit singles (‘Karmadrome’, ‘Bulletproof’, ‘Get The Girl! Kill The Baddies’) and also introduced them to a new audience in the wake of the grunge explosion of 1991.

Spread across 2CDs, this set presents a fascinating insight into the album’s development, containing nine of the band’s own ‘bedroom’ demos for the album, recorded before the recruitment of a drummer (including a song which was never released), alongside the best of the b-sides and remixes from this period in their career and a promo only version of ‘Get The Girl!’.

Accompanied by sleeve-notes by the band’s own Adam Mole, an essay on this period and some fantastic archive images, this package provides a fascinating insight into a very successful era of change in PWEI’s career.

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.

The Practice of Everyday Life - Celebrating 40 Years of Recordings -
The year 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of BILL NELSON's recording career and to celebrate this Esoteric Recordings announce a new release on their recently launched Cocteau Discs imprint, the lavish boxed set THE PRACTICE OF EVERYDAY LIFE Celebrating Forty Years of Recordings." This is the most extensive and detailed anthology of Bill's astoundingly creative career to date.

Over the past four decades Bill has consistently proved himself to be one of Britain's most original and creative musicians, exploring an astonishing diversity of musical styles, consistently pushing musical boundaries and earning the admiration of legions of fans throughout the world and enlightened critics alike. As a guitarist, Bill ranks as a great and uniquely gifted figure, but this eclectic selection of tracks also highlights his work as a singer/songwriter and instrumental composer.


The 1971 album Northern Dream was the first release of his illustrious career. Although recorded on rudimentary
  equipment at a small Wakefield recording studio, the record was a fine early example of an independently produced album. Northern Dream was championed by the legendary DJ John Peel and paved the way for Bill's future career, beginning with his legendary band Be Bop Deluxe, (a group who recorded five successful studio albums plus a live album for EMI's Harvest label), and the equally innovative Red Noise. His acclaimed solo career continued with the release of the album Quit Dreaming and Get on the Beam , and a succession of diverse releases for both major labels and his own independent company, Cocteau Records (a venture which saw Bill become a pioneer of the do-it-yourself approach to recording and releasing music).

Track listed by Bill himself, this deluxe anthology gathers together more than 150 tracks over Eight CDs. The set begins
  with his earliest recordings and includes previously unreleased material by Be Bop Deluxe, along with examples from Bill'sextensive solo catalogue, exploring a wide range of styles. The anthology also includes a selection of material from his more recent albums, self-released by Bill on his Sonoluxe label. The set is rounded off by the inclusion of a bonus CD featuring two previously unreleased BBC Radio One sessions from 1981 and 1983 respectively.

THE PRACTICE OF EVERYDAY LIFE Celebrating Forty Years of Recordings is a lavish tribute to a true original.


Press:-

"Nelson’s creative restlessness manifests itself in myriad musical voyages (he even dabbles in drum’n’bass on 1996’s After The Satellite Sings), recording for the most part in his home studio to his own deadlines.”  

Record Collector May 2012
