Growing Up Absurd / WhatÆs In A Word - Brilliant Corners

Growing Up Absurd / WhatÆs In A Word
Released on 16/10/09. The Brilliant Corners were… well… brilliant; they hovered on the edge of a breakthrough for much of the late 80's and early 90's and still remain very well respected. Growing Up Absurd was released as a mini album in 1985, followed by What's In A Word in 1986 and presented here with the Fruitmachine EP.

Small Time / Hey Hey We’re The Manqués 2CD

Formed in the mid ‘80s, The Servants was a vehicle for songwriter David Westlake. The band was included on the NME's C86 compilation, and by 1987 future Auteur Luke Haines had joined on guitar. Their debut album, "Disinterest”, was released in 1989, and they began to work on a follow-up, "Small Time”, before disbanding in the early 1990s.
Previously unreleased, and unheard by anyone outside of the band, ‘Small Time’ is the Servants' lost second album – "the best album… a strange and wonderful thing,” according to Haines in his sleeve-notes. In his book ‘Bad Vibes’, Haines describes the band’s first album, "Disinterest”, as 'existential art rock , ten years too late and fifteen years too early’. The songs on ‘Small Time’, he says are 'more mysterious, strange and beautiful, transcending their influence and sounding like nothing else.'
CD TWO of this set – "Hey Hey We’re The Manqués” – includes rehearsal versions of songs from "Disinterest”, taped before the album was recorded. "Disinterest” was recently included in MOJO magazine's list of 'the greatest British indie records of all time.'
Compiled and mastered by David Westlake, with sleeve-notes by Luke Haines, this set has been produced with the full involvement and approval of the artists and is a must-hear for anybody with an interest in adventurous, ethereal alternative pop.

Pop Can! The Definitive Collection 1986 to 1988. 2CD
Mighty Mighty were a popular Indie guitar pop combo hailing from Birmingham, who made their name as part of the so-called C86 scene championed by the NME on their famous cassette.
Between 1986 and 1988, the band issued six singles/EP’s and an album, all of which made the Indie Chart courtesy of their evocative mix of naggingly hummable tunes, poignant lyrics and a musical style which suggested a love of both The Smiths and Postcard-era Orange Juice.
After rave reviews for their first two singles, Everybody Knows The Monkey and Is There Anyone Out There?, Mighty Mighty signed to local label Chapter 22 (then home to Pop Will Eat Itself, etc.), eventually issuing their sole LP Sharks in 1988.
Pop Can! (the title doesn’t appear on the sleeve, a nod to Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground!) is the first comprehensive compilation of Mighty Mighty’s recordings. Previous CDs are now impossible to find!
Those singles in full:
Everybody Knows The Monkey (1986, Girlie) Indie No.34
Is There Anyone Out There? (1986, Girlie) Indie No.14
Throwaway (1986, Chapter 22) Indie No.7
Built Like A Car (1987, Chapter 22) Indie No.6
One Way (1987, Chapter 22) Indie No.10
Maisonette (1988, Chapter 22) No.8
The compilation boasts remastered music as well as a beautifully annotated 16-page booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from each band member.

Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop 1983-1993 2CD
The Brilliant Corners might just have been the best band out of Bristol during the 1980s.
Taking their name from a Thelonious Monk jazz album, they issued ten singles, five albums and various compilations between 1983 and 1993. Many of them made the Indie Chart, from early efforts with hints of psychobilly and The Cramps to more melodic, C86-flavoured tracks (think The Smiths and The Housemartins) and later tracks with a hint of shoegazer and baggy about them.
In Davey Woodward, The Brilliant Corners were fronted by a handsome, charismatic singer who was also a talented songwriter – and Davey’s cooperated with this long-overdue anthology, helping with the track listing and supplying the entertaining sleeve-notes.
HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE is the most authoritative Brilliant Corners collection to date, boasting all their singles on the SS20 and McQueen labels plus numerous tracks which have never before been on CD and a handful of previously unissued demos and live tracks.

Release date: 18/02/2013

Hold On Inside, Complete Recordings 1991-1986 2CD
Brighton’s 14 ICED BEARS emerged in 1986 as part of the C86 generation of Indie-Pop bands.
Early singles ‘Inside’ (1986) and ‘Balloon Song’ (1987) were quintessential jangly guitar nuggets, issued on ex-TVPs bassist Mark Flunder’s Frank label.
After an EP Come Get Me for the impeccably cool Sarah Records, they signed to Thunderball in 1988 for more psychedelic ‘World I Love’ and ‘Mother Sleep’ and eponymous debut album.
1991’s second LP Wonder was a more sprawling, adventurous creation (close to shoegazer territory) but 14 Iced Bears split soon after. They reunited in 2010 and have since played Indietracks and some shows in the USA.
HOLD ON INSIDE is the first retrospective to offer their complete output from 1986-1991, albeit presented in reverse order, as if travelling back in time – very psychedelic!
Compiled by 14 Iced Bears singer/songwriter/guitarist Rob Sekula, this 2-CD boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

John Peel’s enthusiasm was clearly evident: "I like these Iced Bears, all fourteen of them!"

Alexis Petridis, head music critic at the Guardian said: "I genuinely think 14 Iced Bears' eponymous debut album is a bit of a lost psych classic."
