Everybody is Fantastic - Microdisney

Everybody is Fantastic
· Microdisney began recording in their native town of Cork, Ireland. Their first few singles, including 1983's "Pink Skinned Man", were produced by Dave Feeley, and released on indie labels Kabuki records.

· After relocating to London, they signed to Rough Trade, and utilised John Porter (producer of The Smiths) to produce their debut album, Everybody is Fantastic. At this time, the band became acquainted with John Peel, who championed their music, and gave them the first of several celebrated Peel Sessions.

· This re-issue done in conjunction with the band contains rare single B-sides and the complete Peel session recorded at the time. With notes in collaboration with the band and a book packed with memorabilia this release serves as a great re-introduction to this finest of Irish bands.

Released 27/04/09. April 2009 sees Esoteric Recordings release the classic trilogy of albums by Ladbroke Grove counter culture proto-Punks the Deviants. Founded by legendary counter-culture figure Mick Farren and Russell Hunter and inspired by The Fugs, the Deviants were first of the anarchic groups to emerge from the Ladbroke Grove area of London. Two years before Hawkwind burst on to the underground scene, the Deviants were preaching revolution and creating their own form of musical anarchy. 'Ptoof!' was the band's classic debut album, originally released in 1967 and only available by mail order from the pages of International Times. Resplendent in a lavish fold out sleeve and with liner note by John Peel, the record caused a sensation, one of the first truly independent British rock albums to be released. This Esoteric edition restores original the artwork and has been re-mastered from the original master tapes. Our Price: £10.95

The House Of Love 3CD Deluxe Edition
THE HOUSE OF LOVE were one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands to grace Creation Records back in the late 1980s.
Their eponymous debut album was cited as one of the best albums of 1988 by music magazines and Indie fans alike. It has been out-of-print on CD for some time now.
This deluxe edition of THE HOUSE OF LOVE offers the band’s complete Creation recordings from 1987-1988, together with a raft of previously unissued bonus material.
The package boasts all their Creation Records singles, from the original version of ‘Shine On’, ‘Real Animal’ and the US favourite ‘Christine’ (which reached #8 in the Modern Rock chart there) to their final single for the label, ‘Destroy The Heart’.
Disc 3 is devoted to nineteen hitherto unheard HOUSE OF LOVE demos, including two exclusive Guy Chadwick songs ‘Hold On Me’ and ‘Modern World’, which were never released!
Also making their debut on CD is the rare 7” album freebie (two demos) and the ‘Flexidisc’ version of ‘Shine On’, together with Guy’s original demo of this song which eventually gave them a sizeable hit.

This 3-CD package is housed in a stylish Digipak with fresh sleeve-notes and rare images from the band’s photographer Suzie Gibbons.

Beatsongs (2CD)
The Blue Aeroplanes burst out of Bristol in 1984, a pyrotechnic blur of dulcimers, bagpipes, turntables, dancing and lots of guitars, all bound together in tendrils of freeform poetry. For a select few they were a revelation, and the debut LP Bop Art was a source of comfort in trying musical times.
In 1989, the band signed a new deal with Ensign, and gained a new audience by touring the UK with long-time admirers REM. Those who witnessed the fourteen-guitar finale at the Hammersmith Odeon - where Stipe, Buck, Berry, Mills, half the road crew, and an assortment of music journalists joined the band on-stage for Breaking in My Heart - still speak in hushed tones. Fresh from this live triumph, the band headed for the studio, and began work on the superlative Swagger LP.
Swagger became the band's biggest critical and commercial success to date, bolstered by their new-found success and recognition, the band headed for LA to record the follow up to Swagger, entitled Beatsongs."The best album to bear a UK postmark in a long, long time" (Select)
This second album on the major label was their highest charting, reaching no. 33 in the UK album charts, this expanded version of the record, combines the album with a bonus disc of rare B-Sides and unreleased tracks all curated by Gerard Langley. Lovingly packaged in the classic Blue Aeroplanes style, this great record can only enforce the legacy of the band that still tour and release albums to this day
