Battle Hymns For Children Singing The Best Of Haysi Fantayzee
Haysi Fantayzee were formed in 1981 by fashion photographer Kate Garner, former Animal Magnet member Paul Caplin and Jeremy Healy, a well-known face on London's club scene. Together they set about injecting a sense of fun and adventure into the music scene, wearing outlandish, selfdesigned costumes and dreadlocks, and writing songs that married sexual subversion with deliberately disposable and cocksure dayglo pop.

Their 'Dickensian Rasta' look was an immediate hit and saw their debut single 'John Wayne Is Big Leggy' rise to number 11 in the national charts. In their brief career they would also enjoy chart success with 'Holy Joe' and 'Shiny Shiny'. All three hits are reprised on this CD, as is their sole album, Battle Hymns For Children Singing.

The package also features a host of bonus tracks, remixes, and sleevenotes written with the co-operation of both Healy and Garner. The former went on to become one of the UK's most successful DJs, while the latter is an accomplished and in-demand photographer for artists including Sinead O'Connor, Bjork, David Bowie and others.

Ferment
Released on 22/03/10. Their epic debut single for Font Black Metallic brought them attention and praise from the press and fans alike. It also became their biggest hit in the States making the top ten in the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and is still name checked now as indie classic of the early 90's. The band followed this with two more singles, Balloon and I Want To Touch You before releasing their debut album Ferment in mid-1992. The album was produced by Talk Talk's Tim Friese-Greene who continued to produce and help them before they split in 2000. This long overdue and welcome reissue includes newly written sleeve notes by journalist and early champion of the band, Jack Rabid from Big Takeover magazine and 6 additional bonus tracks chosen by the band. These being the limited edition 2,000 only pressing of the 30 Century Man E.P., the non-album single Balloon and live fan favourite Intravenous which fans have been trying to get hold of for years. The band went on to release four more albums before calling it a day. Rob Dickinson has since released a solo album for Universal, Fresh Wine For The Horse, while Neil Sims and Brian Futter went on to form 50ft Monster. Our Price: £9.95

Sue
At long last, the debut Frazier Chorus album, ‘Sue’, returns. Frazier Chorus hailed from Brighton and consisted of Tim Freeman, Michelle Allardyce, Kate Holmes and Chris Taplin (Holmes is now one half of electro/pop outfit Client along with ex-Dubstar singer Sarah Blackwood). Their finest hour, ‘Sue’ is now expanded with all of the accompanying b-sides from the singles ‘Sloppy Heart’, ‘Dream Kitchen’ and ‘Typical!’ The release also includes their unique take on the Sex Pistols anthem ‘Anarchy In The UK’, along with ‘Spoonhead’, which is available for the first time on CD, plus extended mixes of ‘Dream Kitchen’, ‘Typical!’ and ‘Forty Winks’. The accompanying booklet includes lyrics to all of the songs, along with new liner notes from singer/songwriter Tim Freeman. Freeman is the brother of acclaimed comedy actor Martin Freeman, whose character Tim in The Office was based on his sibling… a fact of which he is actually quite proud!

Press:-

"With his articulate, witty lyrics-delivered in a mannered whisper and full of rainy days, cups of tea and Little Chefs-the four-piece refined a carefully orchestrated, colourful contrast to The Smiths’ recent monochrome take on the English condtion.”  

-Wyndham Wallace (Uncut Magazine – March 2012)

Lovely 2CD 25th Anniversary Edition
Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with ‘Crash’, kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al).
Lovely was The Primitives’ debut album. Issued in April 1988 on the back of the success of ‘Crash’, it peaked at No. 6 in the UK, staying on the charts for ten weeks, and yet is unavailable on CD.
The Primitives’ profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a brand new studio album Echoes And Rhymes last year and Cherry Red’s 2-CD compilation of the band’s pre-RCA recordings, Everything’s Shining Bright, which surfaced in March.
This 25th anniversary 2-CD set boasts most of the band’s B-sides and other rare tracks from that successful year, as well as including those hit singles in full:
Crash (February 1988) No.5
Out Of Reach (April 1988) No.25
Way Behind Me (September 1988) No.36
Compiled with the help of guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

Release Date: 10/06/2013

Please note all the signed copies of this album have now SOLD OUT!
