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.
