From The Promised Land - Play Dead

From The Promised Land

Where some albums have torturous histories, this one has had more time on the rack than most! When Play Dead's 1984 LP "From The Promised Land" was reissued in the early 90s, it was re-titled Resurrection, for no good reason that anyone can remember. It transpired that Clay Records had gone bust, sold its catalogue to Sanctuary, who had then released a mish-mash of "From The Promised Land" with a load of singles and b-sides, and re-titled it "Resurrection". The band was powerless to stop the album going out in a format that was never meant to be. Now Anagram Records have put the track selection back as intended, and re-instated 'Weeping Blood' (absent from Resurrection) to the running order along with 9 bonus tracks. You now have, effectively; the album the band wanted you to hear first time round!

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).

When Luton's UK Decay broke up in 1982, they left behind a substantial fan base of mournful followers. The core band had taken punk and re-moulded it, adding layers of darkness and repressed emotion, coupled with a shamanic intensity that saw them dubbed 'positive punk'. Ultimately they have been seen as forerunners of the whole Goth movement. Their tumultuous live shows, flocked to by devotees who reveled in their passionate, compulsive performances, are still discussed with wide-eyed reverence today by those that partook of them. Those who consumed the small number of vinyl releases they left behind only ever got half the story. After a couple of name and line-up changes Furyo recorded their self-titled debut in 1984, closely followed by the Furioso EP the same year. These two titles make up this particular album release, which is experiencing its first time cd! Our Price: £9.95
