Flying Lizards / Fourth Wall - Flying Lizards

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.

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. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. 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.

The Ark
Released 27/04/09. After our proud release of Chad & Jeremy's "Of Cabbages And Kings", we now present their followup, "The Ark". Put together by the same Gary Usher-helmed team with the same sumptuous results, this is an amazing album. Little were Chad and Jeremy to know it would be their swansong as 1960s recording artists...they should have stuck with it! With songs informed by their own personal Brit oddyssey through 1960s California and their support for RFK's presidential campaign, this is a very fitting addition to the great run of Psychpop we've had lately...and one of the best!

The Hearts And Flowers Collection
UNFORTUNATELY THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. Cherry Red Records apologises for the unavailability of this album, however if you would like to be notified when it is on sale again then please email matti@cherryred.co.uk. Thanks.

An underrated part of the California 1960's folk-rock explosion, Hearts and Flowers were in fact instrumental in the coming country-rock style which became the "Sound Of California" in the 1970's. Larry Murray moved from Gram Parson's hometown of Waycross, Georgia, to California, and played in Bluegrass groups with future Byrd Chris Hillman and future Burrito Brother and Eagle, Bernie Leadon. Meeting Dave Dawson and Rick Cunha, he formed Hearts and Flowers, who released their Nik Venet-produced debut on Capitol in the summer of 1967. A mixture of masterful and obscure covers and originals, the album gained critical acclaim. Reuniting with Bernie Leadon, the group recorded a second album, which met much the same fate despite it's outstanding quality, and it's should-have-been-a-hit version of the Rising Sons' "She Sang Hymns Out Of Tune". Only in retrospect does the importance of Hearts and Flowers become apparentas, their members scattered to the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Eagles, and the backing groups of Linda Rondstadt and Emmylou Harrisand varying degrees of fame......but their recorded legacy lives on!

You’ve Come That Way Before
DJs and hipsters worldwide bigging up an album by Christina Applegate's mom? You're putting me on, right? Well, er... NO!! Radiant New York based actress/songstress Nancy Priddy only made this one album, but what an album it is! A fine, low-key psych folk pop masterpiece, funky and folky and psychy-rocky and Lord knows what else all at once, with the Big Apple's finest. Nancy had been a mover and shaker on the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960's, as a member of The Bitter End Singers and is the subject of the Stephen Stills-penned Buffalo Springfield classic, "Pretty Girl Why" (think "Priddy Girl Why"). The album was produced by industry legend Phil Ramone, then working with enigmatic audio innovator Enoch Light on his Project 3 roster including The Free Design, and obviously at the top of his considerable form. There are elements of folk, pop, soul, gospel, even children¹s music here, a unique sound and atmosphere which has made this one of those mysterious albums which commands top dollar without being obviously by any kind of "rock legend". Over startling arrangements centred around spare basslines, folk changes, experimental touches and DJ-enticing drum breaks, she sings lyrics far beyond the usual pop-romantic platitudes. Today, the album is rabidly sought after by DJs and the hordes of Wyrd Folk fans in that growing field - and big bucks indeed change hands - but here it is sounding better than ever on Rev-Ola!!!!
