Kaleidoscopin : Exploring Prisms Of The Past - Wondermints

Kaleidoscopin : Exploring Prisms Of The Past
Emerging in the early 90s with a series of now legendary, self-made cassettes, Wondermints quickly developed a reputation for being one of the pre-eminent bands operating in Los Angeles. Over the next decade, four albums followed, garnering massive acclaim, especially in Japan. In addition to all this, the band recorded many stray tracks, placed on now long-out-of print compilations, soundtracks including the main title to Austin Powers and singles. Just one listen to Kaleidoscopin and it immediately becomes apparent why, in 1996, Brian Wilson said, "If I'd had Wondermints in 1967, I'd have taken Smile out on the road."

North Of A Miracle
Nick Heyward’s debut album, North of A Miracle was originally released through Arista Records in October 1983. In January 1983, he departed Haircut 100 and headed straight into the studio with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to produce a timeless classic pop album. It was highly acclaimed by both fans and critics upon its original release and is still held in high esteem today, with Uncut magazine calling it an all time classic that fell off the radar . The album features 4 hit singles, Whistle Down The Wind , Take That Situation , Blue Hat For A Blue Day and On A Sunday .

This reissue has been personally overseen by Nick and expanded from its original 10 track form to include an additional 22 rare and unreleased recordings.

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.

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.

Twinn Connexion
Jay and Jerry Hopkins, The Twinn Connexion, were like no musical act anyone had ever seen before. The striking, identical blonde twins graced their 1968 Decca debut, Twinn Connexion in matching shag haircuts, floral-patterned brocade mod suits, and sharp white ankle boots. Even their ascots matched. The music on Twinn Connexion was as unique as their look: soft-pop vocals steeped in sunshine and psychedelia-lite arrangements, complete with electric sitar and harpsichord, delivered by seasoned New York session men. After being forgotten for years, Twinn Connexion, their lone album, has become a beloved soft-pop obscurity, fetching high prices on the collectors' market. The album will get its first legitimate CD release the Now Sounds way: with 8 bonus tracks, a deluxe 24-page booklet, loaded with rare photos and exclusive commentary from surviving Twinn, Jerry Hopkins! Produced by Jerry Keller, cowriter of The Cyrkle hit ‘Turn Down Day,' Twinn Connexion was described by soft-pop expert Dawn Eden as "at once brilliant, enticing, and maddening" Still, most of the songs that landed on their debut, Twinn Connexion, are more like the soundtrack for a psychedelic walk in the park (or a "Sixth Avenue Stroll"!) on a spring afternoon. Enjoy the sunshine. Our Price: £9.95
