And Did Those Feet - Dancing Did

And Did Those Feet
When Mick Mercer, one of the most respected music journalists with some 30 years in the trenches, cites The Dancing Did as his favourite English band of all time, you know we're talking about something a little special. Yet their epic output, has always been a little too subversive and clever for the mainstream and therefore has never before been available on CD. Cherry Red's re-release puts this travesty to rights, restoring their captivating sole long-player "And Did Those Feet" in full. As if that wasn't enough, the package comes complete with bonus material from their time with Stiff and Kamera Records, including all their a-sides, plus never before heard soundboard live recordings. The package also includes Mick's detailed liner notes, written in co-operation with the band, plus exclusive photographs and memorabilia. The Dancing Did's amalgam of the rural Gothic, replete with folk jigs and Hank Marvin-esque guitar, as well as Tim Harrison's unfailingly intricate and humorous lyrics, mark them out as one of the great undiscovered treasures of the early 80s post-punk milieu.

Leicester Square: The Best Of....
This CD collection features the highly original and uniquely English, Yeah Yeah Noh, a gem from the 1980’s alternative pop scene. Fusing brilliantly barbed ideas with cosmic beat tunes, the band were undeniably ‘ahead of their time’.

This collection features the very best of Yeah Yeah Noh’s singles, EP’s, LP’s and Peel Sessions with the added attraction of previously unreleased ‘post split’ tracks. The highlights include the band’s first single "Cottage Industry", Peel Session contributions of "Beware The Weakling Lines", "The Superimposed Man" and "Crimplene Seed Lifestyle" and previously unreleased titles "Hands Up For Happiness", "Pink Green" and "Chocolate River".

The CD booklet includes the band’s original single sleeves, posters, press reviews and even some of their royalty statements. A complete discography rounds of a fantastic package that gives a comprehensive view of the band’s history.  

STOP PRESS: Yeah Yeah Noh are back together and are playing live as of summer 2012, on the lookout for "interesting gigs in fields; gardens with expansive lawns considered." 

"They are a likeable bunch, with none of the pretentions of your average would-be rock stars. They have brought out a comic, called the Bumper Book of Yeah Yeah Noh, with gossip and other things about them, described as "hours of amusement for all the family." The lads and one lass appreciate their support from Leicester, and also from the droll Scouse DJ who has taken them on board. Prick Up Your Ears is the title of one of their singles which appears on the latest disc. Why not?" - Leicester Mercury, 1984  

"Derek grinds his scrawny hips to YYN's ramshackle swing, combining prole art threat with a spikey-psych, peculiarly English pessimism. Rowdy ostrich guitar keeps their anti-miserabilist suss coming at you from a uniquely human angle, and all in all five seconds of YYN's crabbed, spunky humour compensates for an eternity of Howard Jones. If this is war on pop, Yeah Yeah Noh are trainee Vietcong." - Mat Snow, NME 

"Overall, in tandem with musically dissimilar but contemporaneous US outfits like the Meat Puppets and Husker Du, Yeah Yeah Noh showed that the real future of psychedelia lay in filtering it through the disciplined lens of punk's Year Zero austerity, rather than merely trying to recreate the 60s without any attempt to validate their sound a for a more cynical era (see The Paisley Underground). They also had both punk spikiness and melodic cuteness in spades and yet were so seperate from the UK indie scene's predominantly London/Glasgow-based mainstream that no one thought to include them on the "C86" compilation. Shame they didn't stay together as long as The Fall... " - Popel Vooje, www.headheritage.co.uk  

"A tidal wave of adulation surges through the crowd to its very furthest reaches, such is the mood as Yeah Yeah Noh stumble toward their final London appearance, a mere 13 nights from their last anywhere. It's a tragedy: the band are now at an all-time creative peak, fusing brilliantly barbed ideas with with cosmic beat tunes, getting a freaky light show together and putting out 'Cutting The Heavenly Lawn of Greatness', which ranks among the best LPs of the last five years. The wonderful Yeah Yeah Noh perform a happy, tearful and sizzling set. It ends; the truth sinks home. Grown men cry. It's been a lot of fun." -  Mr. Spencer, Sounds  

"All clumsy indie bands realise that the past is there to be plundered. Giants in their field, Yeah Yeah Noh plundered, perfected and performed.  Being the perfect pop group, their demise was inevitable." - Neil Taylor, NME 

"The Peel sessions are a classic memory torn between dubbed out reggae and silly noises from Europe. Now that's the way life should be." - Dave Henderson, Sounds, 1986.

Same As It Never Was
Blood And Roses were the group most closely identified with the 'positive punk' movement of the early 80s, although they were also variously described as anarcho punk, hippy punk, even acid punk. Of course, the 'positive punk' scene, of which Blood And Roses, alongside UK Decay, Brigandage et al, ranked as leaders, is now identified as a vital precursor to what would become Goth. For a period in the early 80s Blood And Roses were championed by the media, which came as a shock to guitarist Bob Short when he saw the official at the desk of his local DHSS look up from his copy of the NME and recognise him from the cover. Born out of the Waterloo squat punk scene, the band went on to score indie chart success with the singles 'Some Like It Hot' and 'Love Under Will', also releasing an acclaimed debut album "Enough Is Enough" (which is present here in full).

The Curse of The Higsons: Deluxe Edition

· The Higsons were founded in 1980 at the University of East Anglia by Charlie ‘Switch’ Higson, Terry Edwards, Simon Charterton, Colin Williams, Dave Cummings and Stuart McGeachin. Over a string of Indie singles and an album, they married disjointed punk/funk rhythms and warbling vocals in a style which betrayed their love of Talking Heads.

 

· After singles on local Norwich-based labels like Romans In Britain and Waap and two releases for 2Tone, the band signed to Upright for long-overdue album The Curse Of The Higsons in 1984. Charlie later excelled as a comedian and writer (not least in The Fast Show) while Terry has seemingly played every instrument with myriad different bands.

 

· Long out-of-print, The Curse Of The Higsons is now treated to a deluxe 3-CD set, compiled, mastered and approved by Terry Edwards and the rest of the band.

 

· This expanded version adds all the versions/tracks which graced their two collectable singles for 2Tone (‘Tear The Whole Thing Down’ and ‘Run Me Down’), plus other singles ‘Push Out The Boat’, their charming cover of Andy Williams’ ‘Music To Watch Girls By’ and a demo of their swansong, ‘Take It’, from 1985.

 

· As a bonus third disc, the hitherto cassette-only album Live At The Jacquard Club, Norwich makes its digital debut. Issued on Chaos Tapes, it is now swelled by five tracks from a Lyceum show in 1984, three of which are previously unissued..

 

Members of The Higsons, including Charlie, will be speaking about the band’s history as part of celebrations for UEA's 50th anniversary over the last weekend of September.

Black And Dekker - The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980 - 1982

·A legend in Jamaican music, Desmond Dekker was the island’s first ‘outernational’ star, scoring huge hits in the late 60s with the likes of ‘007’, ‘It Mek’ and ‘Israelites’.

·This 2-CD set boasts all of Desmond’s recordings for Stiff between 1980 and 1982, including two albums plus stray B-sides and a brace of exclusive tracks from the rare ‘Hot City’ 12”. This was a successful period for Dekker, who enjoyed renewed popularity on the back of the 2 Tone movement.

·The majority of these recordings are currently unavailable on CD. In fact, the two albums have only been issued before as rare Japanese imports!

·Black And Dekker was self-produced with help from Vic Keary and Stiff boss Dave Robinson and engineered by the likes of Sid Bucknor (like Keary, a Trojan Records veteran). The album boasted reworkings of several of his classic 1960s singles. Also included here is ‘Juliet’, which was omitted from the UK/European edition.
