Snakes And Ladders, Almost Complete: 1980-82 - TV21

Snakes And Ladders, Almost Complete: 1980-82
Released on 29/03/10. This is the first-ever retrospective of TV21, an acclaimed Scottish post-punk band at the dawn of the 1980s. Having recorded a couple of acclaimed singles on their own Powbeat label, they signed to the Deram label also home at the time to Mo-Dettes. The band recorded a string of singles including the near-hit, Snakes & Ladders as well as appearing on the Old Grey Whistle Test and supporting the Rolling Stones in 1982. Their album, A Thin Red Line, is a must for any fan of Orange Juice, Scars or even The Jam, whom TV21 supported. TV21 reunited a couple of years ago for several shows and a new album, Forever 22. The band are fully supporting this compilation.

Virgins And Philistines
Released on 22/03/10. After the demise of The Fun Boy Thee in 1983, Terry Hall formed the The Colourfield with ex-Swinging Cats member Toby Lyons and Coventry bassist Karl Shale. They released two singles in 1984, The Colour Field and Take , before the release of Thinking of You in January 85 took them into the UK Top 40, reaching number 12. Following the success of Thinking of You the band released this, their debut album, to critical acclaim from the music press. It has since become a collectable and cherished album amongst fans. This long overdue reissue is the first time the album has been released on CD in the UK. This release presents the original UK vinyl track list plus an additional 10 hard to find b-sides from the four singles. Our Price: £9.95

Drowning In Berlin - The Best Of
A welcome repress for new wave/new romantic band the Mobiles, who enjoyed a run of chart success in the early 80s, notably with their hugely popular and atmospheric single ‘Drowning In Berlin’. The latter reached number nine in early 1982 and the video is still a fixture on MTV to this day.
This comprehensive reissue features their best-known hit plus further singles ‘Amour, Amour’ and ‘Partners In Fiction’, their debut album in its entirety, and a wide selection of rare bonus material including remixes and b-sides.
"Drowning In Berlin" also encompasses comprehensive packaging, with track by track liner notes from bass player David Blundell, a history, interviews with the band’s one-time record label manager, numerous photographs and a complete discography.

Original Albums Boxset (4CD)
Originally signed to Cherry Red in 1981, Eyeless in Gaza moved very quickly through four albums of skewed free-pop explorations to become the intriguing, uncomfortable cousin of the brash new wave sound finding its way into the mainstream at the time.

Picture a place where scratchy guitars, synthesisers, primitive rhythms, found sounds, technical experimentation and neo-noise come together to provide a bed for the poetic, exploratory lyrics of Martyn Bates. Oblique, anxious, difficult in places and beautifully detached, their sound captured perfectly the beauty to be found if one cared to rummage through the rubble of a Britain in the midst of industrial collapse.

Produced with the approval and involvement of the band, and spread across 4CDs presented in a hard clamshell case, this set captures Eyeless In Gaza’s first four albums, along with a band compiled set of non-album essentials and oddities and a sleevenote by Martyn Bates.

•    Four albums originally released in 1981-1982

•    Singles and rarities collection

•    LP replica wallets

•    Band sleevenotes

•    69 tracks

A classic part of the early Cherry Red catalogue, Eyeless In Gaza continue to be influential today and are often namechecked as a key influence by artists from across the musical spectrum.

N.B. This album is released August 25 and will not be dispatched before this date.
