Uptight (The Early Recordings 1985-1986) - Mighty Lemon Drops (The)

Uptight (The Early Recordings 1985-1986)
Hailing from the Midlands, THE MIGHTY LEMON DROPS emerged in the mid-1980s as one of the most exciting Indie Rock bands of their time.

After their Indie hit debut single, ‘Like An Angel’ on Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld label, they signed to Chrysalis’ imprint Blue Guitar and then Sire, releasing six studio albums before disbanding in 1992. 

Uptight offers a unique insight into the band’s roots. Alongside that classic debut EP are BBC radio tracks and a session for the NME’s C86 cassette (including their C86 track ‘Happy Head’). It ends with their mid-1985 cassette, sold at gigs, Some Of My Best Friends Are Songs, with Martin Gilks (later with the Wonder Stuff) on drums, which ends with a cover of The Velvet Underground classic, ‘There She Goes Again’.

Uptight has been compiled and annotated by band members Dave Newton and Tony Linehan.

I Wasn’t Born To Lose You
One of the finest rock bands ever to grace Creation Records’ roster back in the early 1990s, Swervedriver are back with their first album in 18 years!

Swervedriver were formed in Oxford in 1989 around core members Adam Franklin and Jim Hartridge. The band’s mix of guitar-fuelled energy and forlorn melodies echoed American US acts like Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth while also attracting comparisons with the so-called ‘Shoegaze’ bands.

The new album boasts the song ‘Deep Wound’, which the Swervies performed on the Jimmy Fallon Show in the States before releasing it as a limited edition single in 2014.

1.AUTODIDACT

Sub-Lingual Tablet (CD Version)
Set for release on Cherry Red Records on 11th May, Sub-Lingual Tablet is The Fall’s 31st studio album.

Featuring all the trademarks of a great Fall record, Sub-Lingual Tablet comprises 11 tracks and is being released on CD and limited edition vinyl. The vinyl features different mixes.

The current Fall line-up is as follows: Peter Greenway, Keiron Melling, Elena Poulou, Mark E. Smith, Daren Garratt and David Spurr.  

The Fall is noted for its prolific output: in addition to the studio albums they have released more than triple that, counting live albums and other compilations.  
Founded by its only constant member, Mark E. Smith, The Fall formed in Manchester in 1976 and has existed ever since. Musically, there may have been several stylistic changes over the years, but it is often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, always underpinned by Smith's distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics.
