I Ran - The Best Of
One of the most infamous 80's bands to burst out from synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish New Romantic movement into the New Wave scene, A Flock Of Seagulls come to Anagram with "I Ran (The Best Of)" (CDMGRAM 181). A Flock Of Seagulls enjoyed chart success all over the world, especially in the USA where their haircuts have became a singular expression of 80's excess and style. This hits collection, featuring singer Mike Score's newly recorded, true to the original versions of The Seagull's best loved songs, including "I Ran", "Space Age Love Song", "Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) and "Nightmare", is guaranteed to have you banging on your air synth while it transports you back to the 80's.

Electric Head (2CD Expanded Collector's Edition)
Grafting influences from synth-pop, ambient, trance, psychedelic house and leftfield sound experimentation, the Grid’s 1990 debut album "Electric Head” remains an ambitious electronic bricolage of styles.

Band members Dave Ball (Soft Cell) and Richard Norris (ex NME writer, Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve) created an album of monumental ambition and cohesive diversity. Tracks such as ‘Driving Instructor’, informed by Kraftwerk’s minimalist-techno, are set alongside melodic, lush, electronic orchestrations like the album’s 2nd single ‘A Beat Called Love’ and sound experiments like the grand opening track ‘One Giant Step’ that samples the astronaut Neil Armstrong. "Electric Head” serves as testament of a vast sonic vocabulary, little wonder that The Grid were the in-demand remixers of the era for the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Marc Almond, Yello, Brian Eno and the Happy Mondays amongst many others.

The highlight of ‘Electric Head’ is the classic ‘Floatation’ - the summer of 1990’s killer Ibiza ambient dance tune! ‘Floatation’ evokes a dreamscape at the interstices of Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and a dozen half-forgotten film soundtracks: a genre defying meditative evocation of joy, sunshine and freedom. Its tonal pulsing effervescence defined an age, but also defies age; it remains resolutely blissfully potent.

"Electric Head” in this comprehensive expanded edition contains the complete original on the first disc. The second disc contains all the known commercially released remixes (including those by Heller & Farley and Andrew Weatherall) and some previously unreleased contemporaneous Grid tracks from the Warner vaults.
Further listening, further insight, further indefinable artistry.

Homage: Deluxe CD Edition
The euphoric joy of disco has been a consistent thread that has run through the diverse, and illustrious thirty year career of pop legend Jimmy Somerville; his disco cover versions such as "Don’t Leave Me This Way”, "I Feel Love”, "Never Can Say Goodbye” and "(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real” have been among his largest hits but it hasn’t been until now with ‘Homage’ that a whole album of Jimmy’s self-written material has been given a lush and authentic disco style production. 

This all new album has been an extended labour of love for Jimmy, painstakingly recreating the genuine sounds of the hedonistic classic disco era that he so loves. "This isn’t a pastiche, this is an homage”, he states. 

This CD edition comes in collectable deluxe packaging;  an embossed replica mini - LP Gatefold sleeve complete with booklet and housing a black vinyl styled CD.

"Happy days indeed. I've finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I'd buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I'd be in heaven!  The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape.  I've worked with some great people on this album. They gave time, talent and genuine energy and it sounds it. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound ..... I ♥Disco!

NB: This title is release March 6th 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.
