Imagine an electro pop outfit who hail from Paris and Dublin and cite as their influences Talking Heads, Pixies, Syd Barrett, Kraftwerk, Gainsbourg, The Beach Boys and Béla Bartók. That’s the vision behind Mineral – alias Craig Walker, Thierry Fournié, S. Armelle and Damien Li. Walker made his name in Irish indie rockers Power Of Dreams and then trip-hop act Archive, who were huge in France. With Mineral, Craig teamed up in 2012 with three of the finest musicians in Paris to create a widescreen musical canvas in keeping with the best in French music (Air, Daft Punk) while hinting at soundscapes from around the globe. They’ve even recorded a telling cover of My Bloody Valentine’s ‘When You Sleep’.

Debut release from one of the first wave of signings to Alan McGee’s latest adventure in music.

Limited to 359 copies worldwide.

Features the exclusive B-Side ‘When You Sleep’, a cover of the My Bloody Valentine classic.

Mineral are electro pop explorers hailing from Paris and Dublin, influenced by everything from Talking Heads, The  Pixies, Syd Barrett and Kraftwerk to Gainsbourg, The Beach Boys and Béla Bartók.

The video for the band’s 13-minute magnum opus ‘Atoms’ has already attracted interest worldwide.

On July 27th, Mineral performed their first-ever show as a quartet at Cabaret Frappé Festival in Grenoble in France,to rave reviews.

B: WHEN YOU SLEEP (Exclusive track)
No recommended products at the moment.
SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) is the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. Compiled in loosely chronological fashion, the five CDs chart Indie Pop’s development from the post punk era and the dominance of Scottish bands through to its genre-defining C86 period and onto the end of the decade, with the arrival of Madchester and the shoegazing sound.

Inspired by the Nuggets compilations, the box set boasts 134 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from all the key labels of the period – Creation, Factory, Cherry Red, Rough Trade, Sarah, Subway Organisation, Zoo, Kitchenware, Pink, Chapter 22, In Tape, Medium Cool, Lazy, Dreamworld, 53rd & 3rd, Ron Johnson, el, Vindaloo, Red Rhino, Food, etc.

Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Primal Scream, Aztec Camera, Stone Roses, Pulp, the Wonder Stuff, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, the Inspiral Carpets, the Soup Dragons, the Wedding Present, James, the La’s, del Amitri, the Primitives, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Prefab Sprout, the Shamen, Cud, the Bluebells, Black, the House Of Love, Strawberry Switchblade, Pop Will Eat Itself, the Darling Buds, Fuzzbox, That Petrol Emotion, the Railway Children, Jamie Wednesday (as Carter USM), the Milltown Brothers and the Boo Radleys.  

The box set boasts a stylish 54-page booklet with a lengthy sleeve-note detailing each track and illustrations of the records and bands involved.

A few tracks (Strawberry Switchblade, Soup Dragons, Bluebells, Close Lobsters, etc.) have never officially been released before. Many others are extremely rare and make their debut on CD.

SCARED TO GET HAPPY will be promoted by a mini-festival at London’s 229 club on June 22nd, with an impressive roster: the Primitives, the BMX Bandits, the Brilliant Corners, the June Brides, Mighty Mighty, the Wolfhounds, the Popguns, 14 Iced Bears, the Blue Orchids and Yeah Yeah Noh.

Folly - LP
"I can listen to a British Sea Power record and think: ‘You know what? Kitchens Of Distinction were ahead of their time.’”           STEVE LAMACQ / BBC RADIO / 2013  

Kitchens Of Distinction return with a brand new studio album, ‘Folly’, their fifth album and the first for 19 years.

In Summer 2011 Patrick Fitzgerald asked Julian Swales whether he would like to work on some new songs together. With the constraints of distance, day jobs and family duties taken into account, things slowly started to come together. Dan Goodwin was invited to join in the fun and eventually ten songs loomed out of the mist. Ten new songs that sound not as a pastiche of a band 20 years on but, as Julian puts it, are "like a new version sucked through time and space.” 

The songs were recorded in Patrick’s studio in Derbyshire and at Julian’s studio in Brighton. The songs were mixed with Pascal Gabriel (Kylie, Goldfrapp, Inspiral Carpets, Ladyhawke) in April 2013.   FURTHER INFORMATION Kitchens of Distinction were formed in London in 1986 and started and ended their career with a Single of the Week in the UK music press. In between they put out four albums and won the hearts and minds of a generation. Hit singles generally eluded them (the band’s third single "The 3rd Time We Opened The Capsule” did however make it into the ‘NME Writers 100 Best Indie Singles Ever’ list in 1992) but they fared better in the US with "Drive That Fast” hitting number one on the college radio charts over there.  

A compact trio comprising of Patrick Fitzgerald (Vocals, Bass), Julian Swales (Guitars) and Dan Goodwin (Drums, Percussion) they were known for their swirling maelstrom of guitar effects - coined in the press as like being a ‘sonic cathedral’ – and Patrick’s introspective and unabashed lyrics that often dealt with his own homosexuality. They were tagged with the genre ‘shoegaze’ (UK) and ‘dreampop’ (US) although, like many of their peers similarly defined, they never felt comfortable with either term. Their sound was inspired largely by their love of Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen and peers A R Kane and it went on to be heard in a new generation of bands like Interpol, Bloc Party, Editors and British Sea Power.  

 "I love them to death. Long may they burn.”  GRAHAM LINEHAN / writer Father Ted, Black Books, The IT Crowd  

"Kitchens of Distinction are one of my favourite bands”  CHRIS PACKHAM / Springwatch BBC2

A Liverpudlian through and through, Chris Grant has always performed straight from his heart.

Burn Bright / The Dancing Marquis - 7" Ltd Edition




Earlier in 2013, Marc Almond realised the ambition of a lifetime when he attended the first of a few recording sessions with the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie, Hazel O'Connor, T-Rex, The Moody Blues and Morrissey among many others.  

The first stunning results of their unique collaboration are to be heard on this Double 'A' side single 'Burn Bright' / 'The Dancing Marquis'.  

In celebration of the union of these two prodigious talents, Strike Force Entertainment have created a highly collectable limited fans edition. A 7" purple coloured vinyl single in a beautifully designed gatefold sleeve. This vinyl edition also contains the two tracks on a CD single housed on the inside of the gatefold sleeve.  

While both tracks are produced and mixed by Tony Visconti, he also arranged the strings on the hearteningly buoyant 'Burn Bright' with Martin Mc Carrick (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Therapy?) arranging the strings on the othertrack, the reflective 'The Dancing Marquis', a song that Marc Almond wrote 'with Henry Paget 5th Marquess of Anglesey in mind'.  

Demand will be high for this highly collectable limited edition of 1,000 copies.
Our Price: £8.99
