Holidaydream - Sounds Of The Holidays - The Polyphonic Spree

Holidaydream - Sounds Of The Holidays


HOLIDAYDREAM – SOUNDS OF THE HOLIDAYS – the first ever Christmas themed collection of songs from The Polyphonic Spree – finally gets a full European release in this special edition package.

Holidaydream – Sounds Of The Holidays is quite simply a collection of the band’s favourite Christmas songs, given the Polyphonic Spree treatment. Such seasonal classics as ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Silent Night’, and ‘White Christmas’, are wonderfully embellished with the trademark Polyphonic sounds - heavy doses of strings, woodwinds, and lush choral arrangements.

This special edition of the album contains two previously unreleased bonus tracks – ‘It’s Christmas’ and ‘Silver Bells (Malachai Remix)’.

Also included in this special version release is a bonus DVD disc containing a full live show from the band recorded in August 2013 in London. In front of a exuberant crowd the band run through many of their hits along with tracks from their 2013 album release ‘Yes, It’s True’.

Yes, It's True
'Yes, It’s True’. The Polyphonic Spree return to the UK with a new album and tour dates this summer. The band who captured the imagination of thousands from their first notes at David Bowie’s Meltdown in 2002 and went on to take hearts and minds at Glastonbury and on a succession of UK tours have been away from our ears and eyes for some time but have remained a touchstone for all that is innovative, beautiful and downright different in the music scene.

The first album from the band in five years, excluding 2012’s ‘HolidayDream : Sounds Of The Holidays’ compilation of Tim and Julie’s favourite Christmas songs, follows Tim’s diversion into recording with former Tripping Daisy bandmate and ex Secret Machines man Philip E Karnats as Preteen Zenith alongside a revamp for his Good Records Recordings label. If, at first sight, The Polyphonic Spree were defined by their robes and the sheer size of their travelling carnival, now, over a decade since the release of that debut album, ‘The Beginning Stages Of’, with a host of tv appearances, three studio albums and countless festival and touring performances under their belt, The Polyphonic Spree have made the journey from interesting oddballs to globally respected and renowned musicians and composers. Few contemporary acts can point to having such impact on the musical world as The Polyphonic Spree, whether the patronage of Bowie or the ability to tackle a new version of the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ to glowing reviews in both the UK and the USA.‘Yes, It’s True’ continues the Spree’s musical journey; still focused on the melodies that always set them apart but developed with the use of rhythm programming and additional instrumentation to create an album that flourishes eleven tracks to the listener as though this writing pop songs thing was nothing more than an impulse.

Produced by the band’s Tim DeLaughter and Julie Doyle under their guise as ‘The Speekers’ with Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, PJ Harvey) and additional production and mix from Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam), ‘Yes, It’s True’ is released on the band’s own Good Records Recordings via Cherry Red on 5th August. A single from the album, ‘You Don’t Know Me’, will be released on July 29The Polyphonic Spree return to the UK for two festivals shows as follows..

4th AUGUST 2013 - CAMP BESTIVAL, DORSET
6TH AUGUST 2013 - ALBUM LAUNCH GIG AT VILLAGE UNDERGROUND, LONDON
7th SEPTEMBER 2013 -BESTIVAL, THE ISLE OF WIGHT

Inside The Hutt: New Zealand’s Pop-Psych Kingpins 1968-1969



  • In 2001, the Fourmyula’s 1969 New Zealand hit Nature was voted the country’s best pop
    song of all time by the Australasian
    Performing Right Association. The pop-psychedelic band beat Crowded
    House, Split Enz and indie legends The Chills.


  • Inside The Hutt: New  Zealand’s Pop-Psych Kingpins 1968-1969 compiles the best from this legendary band, an outfit that
    were in the top ten from moments after they formed.  It’s the first time they have been
    anthologised beyond New Zealand.


  • The Fourmyula formed in 1967 in Upper Hutt, a short distance
    from New Zealand’s capital Wellington. In New Zealand, they actually were as
    big as The Beatles and had sessions in London at Abbey Road, encountering the
    Fabs while there: even recording with the Mellotron used on Strawberry Fields
    Forever – their complete Abbey Road recordings are included on Inside The Hutt: New  Zealand’s Pop-Psych Kingpins 1968-1969.


  • The Fourmyula's poppy take on psychedelia was infectious. Yet
    they had their own sound, with hints of soul and Americana. They were one of
    New Zealand’s most influential bands.


  • During the punk and new wave era, when living in the UK, their
    drummer Chris Parry went on to work with The Jam and The Cure. This is where he began. The definitive liner notes tell
    his and the Fourmyula’s story.

A Strange Affair - The Sixties Recordings
John’s Children were the quintessential cult 60s Mod/Psych band, controversial, sharply dressed and subsequently the stuff of legend.

The band were fronted by Andy Ellison (later with Jet and Radio Stars) and boasted Marc Bolan within their ranks during their short life.

A STRANGE AFFAIR – for the first time – boasts the entire John’s Children output between 1966 and 1970.

The package includes: * Two singles for EMI’s Columbia label: ‘The Love I Thought I’d Found’ and ‘Just What You Want – Just What You Get’. * Four singles for The Who’s label Track Records: ‘Desdemona’, the legendarily withdrawn ‘Midsummer Night's Scene’, ‘Come And Play With Me In The Garden’ and ‘Go-Go Girl’. * Their mock-live album Orgasm! which was belatedly issued on US label White Whale in 1970. * Andy Ellison’s subsequent solo singles ‘It's Been A Long Time’ (Track), ‘Fool From Upper Eden’ (CBS) and ‘You Can't Do That’ (SNB). * Three tracks by pre-John’s Children band The Silence. * A raft of rare and previously unissued alternative versions and mixes.

The 2-CD set has been compiled with help from Andy Ellison. Their manager Simon Napier-Bell will also be contributing to the detailed sleeve-notes, which are based around excerpts from Ellison’s yet-to-be-published autobiography.
