Them Belfast Gypsies - Them

Them Belfast Gypsies
The second part of our THEM trilogy...detailing the post-implosion fate of Northern Ireland's greatest gift to music until The Undertones!...THEM! ....so we've learned over time of the fate of two factions....Van Morrison went to New York to launch a solo career with initial guidance from legendary soul producer Bert Burns.....Alan Henderson led the remains of the last lineup away from rainy Belfast to new life of garage/psych in California....which you can hear on "Now And Them" (CRREV 29).... From a slightly earlier lineup, brothers Jackie and Pat McAuley enlisted a new crew...remaining true to the tough R&B/beat sound of the Them recordings they had contributed to (like "Gloria" and "Baby Please Don't Go") Meeting Maverick producer Kim Fowley in Denmark Street's legendary Giaconda coffee bar, they decided to take this sound forward in a series of blistering recordings...which developed the beat sound like psychedelia never happened!..the crude guitars, the swirling farfisa...much like The Monks!....Combined with the semi-rap lyrical sensibilities Fowley had used in "The Trip", it was an awesome sound....but one out of time....this album, put together for the Swedish market where The Gypsies were a legendary live attraction, never saw a proper release outside Sweden....but here it is expanded with their mega-rare single "People Let's Freak Out" featuring Fowley and the infamous Guy Stevens (the original Mod DJ, and producer of both Mott The Hoople and The Clash in his time!) as "The Freaks Of Nature....as well as the mysterious instrumental "The Gorilla"..and single mixes of "Gloria's Dream" and the awesome "Secret Police"...which could be hit now!..fabulous stuff! This is the first time on CD in the UK.....first ever UK release actually! And all in the usual Rev-Ola state of the art remastering! Release includes the mono single mixes with lavish package including detailed notes by Jon 'Mojo' Mills of Shindig magazine....featuring an exclusive interview on the album's history with producer Kim Fowley! A must for all fans of THEM, British beat/R&B and garage punk....a legendary album from a legendary band.....especially appropriate in the current climate of garage punk!

Flying Lizards / Fourth Wall
A welcome reissue of the two key Flying Lizards albums, innovative Pop Electronica from the early 1980’s Founded in 1978 by avant-garde composer and producer David Cunningham as an experimental pop band, The Flying Lizards rode the crest of the New Wave peaking with the international hit single Money. First album players included sound stylists in their own right David Toop and Steve Beresford, with vocals from Vivien Goldman. This also included the first two singles made by Cunningham, Summertime Blues and Money with monotone vocals by his art school colleague Deborah Evans, recorded before the album. On the second album Cunningham was even more experimental and brought in contributions from Michael Nyman and Robert Fripp, plus vocals by Patti Palladin. Less successful commercially but more highly rated critically at the time.The music Cunningham created follows after Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream, helping pave the way for the employment of electronica in later UK pop music with the likes of Stereolab, St Etienne and Portishead.
