Quality Street: Expanded Edition - World of Twist

Quality Street: Expanded Edition

· World Of Twist are a deeply revered, respected band and one of the greatest ‘lost’ bands from Manchester. Genius is a moniker often given too easily but in World Of Twist’s case, not nearly enough. They cut through the hazy end of Madchester with a suaveness, a wit and an knowingness showcased by their collection of psychedeliic, soulful, madcap indie pop. It set them apart from anything else at the time – "a Roxy Music for the space age” as Louder Than War put it.

 

· Quality Street, their only album, was released in 1991. It features the singles The Storm, the ecstatic cover of the Stones She’s A Rainbow, Sweets and the legendary Sons Of The Stage.

 

· The band left a mark on many people who have achieved greatness - Jeremy Deller, one of the finest artists the UK has ever produced, included a "We Miss The World Of Twist” float in his work ‘Procession’ at the Manchester International Festival. Noel Gallagher nearly called Oasis Sons Of The Stage and Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye have covered that track in tribute to a band who influenced them so much. Noel even personally insisted that Jamie Fry, whose photographs grace the album artwork, was used for Oasis shoots.

 

· Now after many years of being unavailable, this legendary album is now available on CD and LP.

 

· Expanded to 2CDs, the album comes with a selection of B-sides chosen by founder member, Gordon King, plus the two Radio 1 sessions for John Peel and Mark Goodier.

 

· The album will include a 24 page booklet featuring extensive sleevenotes by Gordon King and full of memorabilia and rare photos from the World Of Twist archive.

Ghost Town - 13 Hits of The Specials & Fun Boy Three
UNFORTUNATELY THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. Cherry Red Records apologises for the unavailability of this album, however if you would like to be notified when it is on sale again then please email matti@cherryred.co.uk. Thanks.

The fifteen tracks are all new recordings of the hits of the Specials and Fun Boy Three featuring lead vocals from roadie turned band member, Neville Staples. Coventry's finest, the Specials, were leading lights of the ska revival at the turn of the 80's, enjoying 12 top forty hits including the massive number one classic, Ghost Town. At the height of the band's success Staples (percussion & vocals), Terry Hall (vocals) and guitarist Lynval Golding left the group in order to form the intriguing 'Fun Boy Three'. The trio's debut single, the haunting "The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum" effectively established the Fun Boy Three as both original and innovative commentators whose work would compare favourably with their mother group, the Specials. Both bands have their finest tunes reworked on this new release including contributions from Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's and remixes of 'Ghost Town' and 'Our Lips Are Sealed'.

Dreams Interrupted
Glaxo Babies were the fore-runners of a wave of Bristol music that spawned The Pop Group, Rip Rig & Panic, Maximum Joy & Pigbag, who all became household names as the jagged edged angst movement quickly gathered respect throughout the world. A firm favourite with John Peel, the Glaxo's soon notched up their first session following on from the highly acclaimed first release - the 12" This your Life EP which included the classic "Who Killed Bruce Lee". Always underrated but never dismissed, they fought back with the blistering Christine Keeler 45 often sighted as the bands finest moment. This collection spans their career, illustrating just how unique and original the Glaxos were, and how their relevance seems ever present with today's jagged edged sounds. Our Price: £9.95

The Porlock Factor
Gl*xo Babies were born out of the thriving Bristol punk scene in 1977. They enjoyed Indie chart success with the 12" EP 'This Is Your Life' in 1979 and notoriety when its follow up 'Christine Keeler' was banned by Radio One. John Peel, who offered them sessions and gigs with his legendary road show, championed the Glaxo Babies. Sadly though, the band was always too recalcitrant, headstrong and idealistic for their own good and imploded acrimoniously after barely 18 months together. With a sense of unfinished business, the nucleus of the original band (Rob Chapman - vocals, Dan Catsis - guitar, Charlie Llewellin - drums) reformed in 1985. Here are the results, inventive and melodic psychedelic pop and warped funk that somehow sounds fresher now than it did in the 1980's. Our Price: £9.95
