Miniatures One + Two Edited by Morgan Fisher - Morgan Fisher

Miniatures One + Two Edited by Morgan Fisher
Featuring artists as diverse as The Residents, Robert Fripp, XTC'sAndy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and The Pretenders Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, Morgan Fisher's1980 release Miniatures truly was a first. Overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and Miniatures was born out of Morgan’s’ precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Fast forward 15 years, several projects and the development of new realms of communication and data transfer afforded by the Internet, and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel. Little did he know that this project would take six years to complete and involve an international cast of players (taking in 18 countries across five continents), but it proved truly worth both the effort and the wait. The astounding Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 musicians and artists of all genres - the bizarre, the eccentric, the contemplative, the rebel-rousers, the pioneers and the philosophers and no stone was left unturned in its creation. As with the original album, one minute creations were composed, then sequenced and edited by Morgan, again meeting with rave reviews and an acknowledgement that Fisher had produced something both original and vital to those with any interest in music existing outside the mainstream. Comprising both legendary tiny masterpiece collections, this new set brings together all one hundred and thirteen tracks (yes, 113!) in one two-disc collection for the first time, freshly boosted and tweaked for 2008.

Peace in the Heart of the City
This is a great title and describes accurately the contents of the album. It is very relaxing, peaceful, heartful, instrumental piano music. Morgan Fisher has had a fascinating career. Was originally the keyboard player in Love Affair who had a No 1 hit with "Everlasting Love" when he was 16 years old. Went on to join Mott The Hoople who had several top ten hits in the early to mid 70's. In 1978 he was one of the first musicians to form his own label, Pipe Music, recording the groundbreaking "Miniatures" album. In 1981 he played keyboards with Queen on their world tour. Since 1985 he has lived in Tokyo and has been very successful there writing music for TV commercials and film soundtracks. During this time he has recorded 12 albums and has built up a strong following in that country. This CD can be racked in both "New Age" sections and under his name "Morgan Fisher" as a known artist.

Move Ass Baby
Released 15/02/10. Though lacking the teenage venom of cuts such as 1969 and I Wanna Be Your Dog from The Stooges and the unadulterated raw power of, well, Raw Power, Move Ass Baby is still essential for die-hard fans. The album, culled from rehearsals in Detroit, for the band's 1973 tour, runs the gamut from full-fledged, ready-to record tunes to the types of swampy jams that the band has claimed indicative of their studio songwriting process. This album explores the creative process that gave birth to nearly all the Stooges albums. Starting with a jam session, an oldie or two, or maybe a blues riff, the songs gradually took shape and were refined from there. Here we find the Stooges in rehearsal, messing around with songs by Bo Diddley, Bob Dylan, Cream, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. We hear the beginnings of songs that never went any further, such as Old King Live Forever , I Come From Nowhere or Wild Love , which had as much potential as any of their best material. And we have some very impromptu jams such as Move Ass Baby and a fascinating James Williamson solo performance. Much of this material has never been heard before. Our Price: £9.95

Slow Music
Recorded in 1980, this collaboration between master tape manipulator Morgan Fisher and legendary improvisational saxophonist Lol Coxhill sees the two explore a mutual interest in treating their work as mere raw material for further experimentation and re-modeling.
Working in Fisher’s Notting Hill home studio, Coxhill’s performances (including Handel’s ‘Largo’ and his own ‘Pretty Little Girl’) were recorded and reworked using a number of innovative studio techniques to create entirely new material, some of which was used as a background for further performances by the pair, the rest treated to further manipulation via tape delays, synthesiser filters and other electronic equipment, resulting in multi layered tape loop pieces, drones and sound collages.
Originally released on Pipe Records (funded by Cherry Red founder Iain McNay), this reissued edition has been remastered by Morgan himself, and is accompanied by a bonus track, ‘Play Quiet’. Originally available only on a cassette given away with the UK’s ‘ZG Magazine’, this piece features music performed by John White, Gavin Bryars and Dave Smith at the launch party for Fisher’s ‘Miniatures’ album and collaged with remixed material from "Slow Music”. A fantastic rarity available here on CD for the first time.
With sleeve-notes and reprographics by Fisher, including a timeline of both artists’ careers and their original texts from the 1980 release, this edition is a must have for fans of either artist, enthusiasts of home studio techniques and lovers of experimental recordings of any kind.
· Bonus track featuring John White and Gavin Bryars
· Digitally remastered

Named after a Roland Kirk album, RIP RIG + PANIC were one of the most exciting bands of the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole.
With lead singer NENEH CHERRY, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on CD.
All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles.
Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.
Issued in 1981, GOD was RIP RIG + PANIC’s debut album, issued as a club-friendly 12” double-pack. It’s now swelled by the non-album singles ‘Go, Go, Go! (This Is It)’ and ‘Bob Hope Takes Risks’ and their B-sides plus the NME cassette track ‘Billy Eckstine’s Shirt Collar’.

Guiding the production of these reissues, Mark Springer is still heavily involved in the world of music and art. More information can be found at and
