La Varieté - Weekend

La Varieté
La Varieté was the 1982 debut album by Weekend, formed by Alison Statton of much-loved Welsh avant-garde/indie pioneers the Young Marble Giants alongside guitarists Simon Booth and Spike. A beautifully realised and delicate collection of songs set against a jazz backdrop, it switches across myriad musical settings including samba, cabaret, Afrobeat and highly personal, confessional pop. The album was originally released in 1982 on the Rough Trade label and made it to No 4 in the independent charts staying in there for 15 weeks. It was revered by critics on release as a bold new departure from the prevailing post-punk ethos and served as a major influence on Saint Etienne, the Sundays, Belle And Sebastian and many others. This comprehensive reissue features nine bonus tracks, including demos and 12-inch versions of singles ‘A View From Her Room’ and ‘Drumbeat For Baby’, and liner notes prepared by the band itself.

The Photos
An expanded re-release of this much-loved Top Five UK chart album first released in June 1980. Often touted as 'the UK's answer to Blondie', there was much more to the Photos than that, with fiery, Buzzcocks-like guitars coiling round Wendy Wu's vocals. Formed in Evesham from the ashes of cult punk act Satan's Rats, the Photos also released a clutch of great 'garage-girl' singles, including 'Irene', 'Friends' and 'Now You Tell Me That We're Through', all included here. As a bonus, both sides of the band's debut single, 'I'm So Attractive' c/w 'Guitar Hero', and later bside 'Je T'Aime', which have never before released on CD, are included! The album also includes the entire "Blackmail Tapes" album of demos and out-takes. The artwork has been expanded to include new liner notes written in collaboration with guitarist Steve Eagles, with accompanying interviews with others around the band. The band were originally due to sign with Cherry Red, before accepting an offer from CBS. Nearly three decades later, Cherry Red is delighted at last to be able to offer a home to one of the great pop albums of the early 80s. Our Price: £9.95
