The Scrap Iron Rhythm Revue - Stavely Makepeace

The Scrap Iron Rhythm Revue
Centred on the irrefutable talents of Nigel Fletcher
and Rob Woodward, Stavely Makepeace began their career in the late 60s
releasing singles on 8 different labels. In the mid 1970’s they also
released records as an alter ego novelty band, Lieutenant Pigeon, and
scored massive hits. Enough to keep funding the more serious side to
their work as Stavely Makepeace.We present the first ever
collection of their work (no album having been released to date), with
the focus on their early - mid 1970’s peak period. Fletcher and
Woodward cultivated an extraordinary sound through recording with home
made equipment in the front room of Woodward’s mums house. Spending up
to 15 hours a day running tape loops, sound effects, playing
conventional and unconventional instruments, Stavely Makepeace occupy
the same territory as Delia Derbyshire and Joe Meek in producing
experimental pop music. As such the recordings have attracted followers
from today’s music tastemakers including St Etienne’s Bob Stanley and
Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker.The group actually beat their novelty alter
ego onto Top Of The Pops when in 1970 they appeared to promote the
single Edna. Their records also used to achieve significant amounts of
airplay from DJs such as Chris Tarrant and Annie Nightingale. Slippery
Rock 70’s has today found its way into the pantheon of top junkshop glam
records to collect, and took pride of place on the Velvet Tinmine
compilation last year.

Glitterbest - 20 Pre-Punk 'n' Glam Terrace Stompers
We roll up with the next album in the Lipsmackin’ 70’s series , and in effect a follow on to the highly successful Velvet Tinmine.What came out of reviews for VT on some tracks were comments about how certain glam tracks were pre cursors to the first punk singles in sound and attitude . So taking this as the concept beginning for Glitterbest (named after the Sex Pistols record company) we’ve pooled this collection of tracks that in some part laid foundations for the later movement.The set ranges across : the terrace aggro stompers of the Jook and Hammersmith Gorillas , who both lead into other tracks by Trevor White (singer/guitarist with the Jook) , and Crushed Butler (again led by the Gorillas legendary Jesse Hector) ; the trashy side with attitude that is the Hollywood Brats, recorded at Olympic in ‘73 ; the pub rock of Ducks Deluxe ; the precursor bands such as Englands Glory lead by Peter Perrett , Lipstick - a 1973 vehicle for Knox of the Vibrators , and the Chris Spedding single that provided an early outing for the Vibrators name .Added to which are some delightfully obscure glam singles that are little gems of spiky attitude or chaotic performance in their own right.

Velvet Tinmine - 20 Junkshop Glam Ravers
One of the RPM successes in the current decade gets a mascara make over. Since first release this influential album has been picked up by many tastemakers and reached as far as two tracks (Slippery Rock 70 s , Kick Out The Jams) being included in the movie Hot Fuzz. The album has also become the centre piece for the newly recognised pop sub –genre Junkshop Glam .The album has been unavailable for a period but due to popular demand is now set to return to the turntables. We have updated the packaging with new and extra photos, revised sleeve notes, and four different tracks. With stack-heeled beats, handclaps, tub-thumping, and vamped up rock n roll guitars being as popular now as ever, this is a good time to get into Junkshop Glam and the star spandex glories of Velvet Tinmine.
