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

Beat Boy
Released 16th February 2009. The first reissue of this seminal 1984 album 'Beat Boy', the third studio album recorded by the pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage.

This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band's core remained as Strange and Egan.

This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, 'Beat Boy' and 'Love Glove.

Like Gangbusters : Expanded Edition
Released on 30th of January 2012. Formed when an expatriate American singer got together with former members of legendary punk outfit Subway Sect, JOBOXERS became a sensation in the 1983 with a Northern Soul infused pop sound.

JOBOXERS' first and biggest UK hit was the #3 smash BOXERBEAT, which was followed months later by the #7 hit JUST GOT LUCKY. This second single also reached the charts in Australia and USA, where it made a big enough impression to be selected for the soundtrack of the Steve Carell comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin over 20 years later.

JOBOXERS' debut album LIKE GANGBUSTERS reached the US Pop charts and became a Top 20 hit in the UK in addition to producing a third consecutive UK Top 40 hit single in the form of JOHNNY FRIENDLY. A Further non album single JEALOUS LOVE gave the band their fourth hit of an amazing debut year. In addition to containing the now rare original 7" and 12" remixes, this 20 track expanded remaster also contains rare b-sides Let's Talk About Love, Why Don't You Do Right (Get Me Some Money Too) and Forget Me Love as well as the hit JEALOUS LOVE, of which the studio version makes it’s CD debut here.

Press:-

"(this album) showcases a band that were more than just a couple of chart hits. Riproaring piano player Dave Gollard’s work fires most of the album, and the success of current acts like Caro Emerald and Paloma Faith suggests JoBoxers’ output deserves a second glance”.

Daily Express / January 2012 / Dave Esson

"Their image was as striking as their sound, with 1920s-esque working class style and a sound that mixed Northern Soul and pop on the likes of ‘Boxerbeat’, as well as following charting singles ‘Just Got Lucky’ and ‘Johnny Friendly’.

8 out of 10

Vive Le Rock / Issue 6 / Gem Pitt   

"It’s a brash, eclectic set that’s well worth reappraisal, particularly second single Just Got Lucky.”

Samantha Fox
"Samantha Fox", the 1987 sophomore album from the perennial pop icon and pin-up, receives a Deluxe Edition reissue on Cherry Pop.

Developing Samantha’s pop-rock sound and broadening her appeal, "Samantha Fox" features five UK hit singles, the irresistible Stock Aitken Waterman classic "Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now" (#8), "I Surrender (To The Spirit Of The Night)" (#25), "I Promise You (Get Ready)", "True Devotion" and "Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)" (#31) – Samantha’s first collaboration with Full Force, which reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her most successful single Stateside.
Digitally remastered direct from the master tapes, this Deluxe Edition brings together the original 10-track album with 20 bonus tracks across two CDs. Sought-after B-sides and many 12" mixes originally only issued on vinyl feature alongside two unheard tracks, "The Right Stuff" and "Hot Tonight", which was later reworked as "Hot For You" on Samantha’s 1989 album "I Wanna Have Some Fun". Also featured are unheard mixes of "I Surrender (To The Spirit Of The Night)" and Samantha’s cover of the Stones’ classic "(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction", which was initially considered for release as a sixth single from the album in mid-1988.

Compiled with personal input from Samantha herself, the extensive booklet also features many additional photos, a fully illustrated discography and recording data, full lyrics and new sleeve notes written especially for this release.
The only British female artist to score three Top Ten hits on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1980s, Samantha Fox made her name as the nation’s favourite Page Three girl before launching an enviable music career. The anthemic "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" became a global chart-topper in 1986 and was followed by a succession of hits, including several collaborations with both the legendary Stock Aitken Waterman and US hip-hop pioneers Full Force. Samantha remains a household name, with a new album planned for 2012 and live dates across Europe.

"Samantha Fox" coincides with accompanying Deluxe Editions of Sam’s other three Jive albums: 1986’s "Touch Me", 1989’s "I Wanna Have Some Fun" and 1991’s "Just One Night", and follows many other popular PWL-related reissues on Cherry Pop from artists such as Mel & Kim, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, Boy Krazy, Brother Beyond, Pepsi & Shirlie and O’chi Brown.

"Fox's self-titled second album was huge, spinning off five chart entries in the UK and spawning the biggest of her six US hits via Naughty Girls (Need Love Too), on which Fox raps alongside then hot hip-hoppers Full Force". Music Week, 03/08/12
