  • Compiled by the band
  • Includes 16 page booklet with sleevenotes from the band, rare photos and memorabilia

 

Sebastopol Rd was Mega City Four’s first album for their new major label home, Big Life. With the success of debut album "Tranzphobia”, follow up "Who Cares Wins”, and a constant touring schedule around the UK, Europe and the US they built up a solid, devoted fanbase easily identifiable in one of the many MC4 t-shirts. By this time, the band were appearing on the front covers of the NME and Melody Maker and the crossover to a major label was no great surprise.

 

Teaming up with producer Jessica Corcoran (Senseless Things, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Shed Seven and The Wonder Stuff) gave the album a pop-punk crunch and more emphasis on the pop than previous material. It features the Top 40 hit ‘Stop’, ‘Prague’, covered by Muse in 2010 on the Resistance single as a tribute to the band who had influenced them, and CD1 now includes the two singles (plus their attendant b-sides) Words That Say and Shivering Sand, their highest charting release.

 

This 2CD set, 21 years after the initial release, gathers together all the studio material from this period and adds 10 previously unreleased tracks, including demos and the John Peel Session from September 1993. It includes all the b-sides and demos taken from the box loads of cassettes and DATs in guitarist Gerry’s shed.

 

FURTHER INFORMATION

The quartet of school friends from Farnborough, Hampshire, formed Mega City Four in 1987. They went on to release five studio albums and are cited as an influence by Muse, one of the biggest bands in the world today. They were always an incendiary live band putting in thrilling performances and winning a devoted fanbase. Leadman and chief songwriter, Wiz sadly passed away suddenly in 2006 leaving a legacy of fast-paced, crunching power pop songs that are often overlooked by many who regard this era of music as the template for much of the emo scene today.

Pygmalion
Pygmalion is the final album by the band Slowdive, released on February 6, 1995. A departure from their previous two albums, Pygmalion incorporated a more experimental sound tilted towards ambient electronic music, with sparse, atmospheric arrangements. All compositions were by Neil Halstead. Lyrics on tracks Miranda and Visions of La by Rachel Goswell. The cover illustration is by acclaimed designer Steven Woodhouse. It was the final album before Slowdive disbanded in 1995, an event widely associated with the demise of shoegazing. This re-issue long out of print now has an enhanced booklet with new sleeve notes by Mojo’s Kieron Tyler. Re-mastered from original tapes, it features a whole disc of rare demos never before released on CD.

Press:-

"Inspired by drug-fuelled trips to Brixton clubnight Quirky, ‘Pygmalion’ was mainly conceived by guitarist and songwriter Neil Halstead in his west London flat – instruments are looped into infinity, while Halstead and Rachel Goswell’s vocals float in and out of the ether.”  

-Nat Cramp (NME – February 11th, 2012)

Whirlpool
Missing ] on field starting at 850

Inspired by the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Ride, Chapterhouse were part of the short-lived 'shoe-gazing' scene of the early 90's, but unlike other acts who acquired a set of guitar pedals and headed off to the nearest recording studio, they mixed beats with their wall-of-sonic-guitar-fuzz to create records to stimulate both mind and feet! Newly expanded reissue of their classic debut 'Whirpool', now with all the b-sides from the singles 'Pearl', 'Falling Down' and the 'Sunburst EP'. Produced by the band along side Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), John Fryer (This Mortal Coil), Stephen Hague (New Order) and Ralph Jezzard, and featuring guest vocals from Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), with liner notes from music journalist and long-time associate Andrew Perry, along with the lyrics in full [documented here for the first time), photos, memorabilia and other clippings from the bands personal archive, and images of all of the releases featured on the album. Long deleted, original CDs of the album sell for £25+ on internet auction websites.
