Strange Cruise - Strange Cruise

Strange Cruise
The first time on CD for this much requested album by Strange Cruise - a band fronted by ex-Visage frontman Steve Strange and Wendy Cruise (Wu) formerly of The Photos.

This CD features the original 10 track album that was released in 1986 on EMI Records. It was produced by Mike Hedges - best known for his work with The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Beautiful South and Manic Street Preachers amongst others.

There are two bonus tracks - 12" version of ‘Rebel Blue Rocker’ - Rebel Mix and b/side ‘Silver Screen Queen’. · The album has been remastered. · The CD booklet will feature the original front cover and a UK discography of Strange Cruise and Visage.

This is the first time these tracks have appeared on CD. · This release follows our reissues of Visage's "The Anvil” (CRPOP6) and "Beat Boy” (CRPOP14). · Following the demise of Visage, Steve Strange formed Strange Cruise with ex Photos singer Wendy Cruise (Wu). Other members included Steve and Gary Barnacle who'd contributed to Visage's 3rd album "Beat Boy”. The band recorded the "Strange Cruise” album in Germany under the experienced production skills of Mike Hedges. The band released the album and two singles before disbanding, complaining of the releases not being supported by the record label. There is still much interest in the recorded output of Steve Strange and Visage.

RELEASE DATE: 27TH JANUARY 2014

Nona Hendryx

Released on 27/09/10. Nona Hendryx was one third of the pop/soul act LaBelle, and by far and away made the hippest solo records of any of the other members of the group, Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash.


After LaBelle called it quits in 1976. Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock.

Wearing skin tight pants, black leather and brandishing a Bowie knife on the LP cover she announced her intentions loud and clear but neither record company or radio at that time knew what to do with this African American woman with a huge voice comfortable and capable of singing hard rock as well as soul music.


Nona worked with Talking Heads as back-up singer and fell in with a hip crowd of musicians and her association with David Byrne led to her working with Bill Laswell who helped her put together her second solo album. Entitled NONA it sparked greater interest in Nona s considerable talents and her solo career flourished.

Mandy
Released 13/04/09. The very first album to be released on Pete Waterman's PWL label back in 1988, Mandy Smith's one and only album "Mandy" is given a re-mastered Special Edition reissue. This Special Edition features the singles "I Just Can't Wait", "Positive Reaction", "Boys And Girls" and "Victim Of Pleasure", with the addition of a subsequent release, Mandy's 1989 cover of the Human League classic "Don't You Want Me Baby?".

Exclusive bonus tracks have been selected direct from the PWL archives. Long thought to be mere rumour, an unreleased Hi-NRG cover of Twinkle's 1964 smash "Terry" and Mandy's original version of the Kylie Minogue hit "Got To Be Certain" feature together with rare mixes of all five singles. These include a bona-fide Balearic classic: the Cool And Breezy Jazz Version of "Mandy's Theme (I Just Can't Wait)".

A successful model, Mandy was only 16 when she launched her music career, but media interest was focused on her personal life and UK chart success proved elusive. However, she scored major hits internationally, notably across Europe and in Japan, and her album remains a favourite for many 80s pop devotees.
