Indie Hits 1980 - 1989 - Barry Lazell

Indie Hits 1980 - 1989
Indie Hits is the first and only complete guide to the first decade of Britain's Independent records chart, and to the acts, the music and the labels which made up the Indie scene of the 1980's. The book is set out in a similar format to the Guinness Hit Singles and Albums books, with every artist, single and album to have shown in the indie charts over the 10 year period being detailed. The first Independent charts were published by the trade paper Record Business in January 1980, by which time they were well overdue. By that time, Mute Graduate, Factory, Crass, Safari and Rough Trade were just a few of the new breed of rapidly expanding labels already scoring hit records. They were producing acts like Depeche Mode, UB40, Toyah, The Cult, Joy Division and Stiff Little Fingers, all to become major international sellers. Later years brought the likes of the Smiths, New Order, Erasure, The Stone Roses, James, The Fall and Happy Mondays (not to mention Kylie and Jason!) - all successful and influential independently -distributed hitmakers. The A-Z section details every chartmaking 1980s indie act and all hit records in a detailed but easy to reference format. Also included are complete indexes of single and album titles, an authoritative history of the origin and development of the Indie charts during the 1980's, listings of all No 1 singles and albums with illustrations of rare original sleeves, print ads and other memorabilia of the period plus a fax 'n' trivia section including the artists and labels with the most chart records, the most No 1's and the longest chart stays. If it was in the indie charts of the 1980's - It's in here!

Captain Sad and his Ship Of Fools
The Cowsills possessed one of the most pleasing vocal blends in all of popular music. In addition, they created—without proper credit—the blueprint for countless other singing “family bands,” including, the TV-created Partridge Family, who were actually based on The Cowsills. 1968’s Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools—the band’s third long player for M-G-M—would prove to be a semi-conceptual album, which perfectly blended the group’s earlier helium-filled soft pop buoyancy with mystical psych pop excursions and sunshine pop sensibilities. The thread that tied these elements together was their undeniable vocal dexterity. This first-ever legitimate CD issue of Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools includes the Top 10 hit “Indian Lake.” Also included are six bonus tracks, including the non-LP Top 50 single “Poor Baby.” Our Price: £9.95

The Cowsills - Expanded Edition
The Cowsills possessed one of the most pleasing vocal blends in all of popular music. In addition, they created without proper credit the blueprint for countless other singing family bands, including, the TV-created Partridge Family, who were actually based on The Cowsills. Released in 1967, The Cowsills self-titled eponymous album was the perfect long-playing launch pad, blending soft pop buoyancy with psych pop excursions and sunshine pop sensibilities. The thread that tied these elements together was their undeniable vocal dexterity. This first-ever CD issue of The Cowsills from the Original Mono Master includes the Top 10 hit The Rain, The Park And Other Things. Also included are EIGHT Bonus Tracks, including all the material that comprised The Cowsills plus The Lincoln Park Zoo album. All sourced from original masters.

Journey To A Plugged In State Of Mind Electronic Music : 100 Years Of Experimention And Exploitation
The story of electronic music and composition has, in recent decades, become a significant musical legacy. Seen by many as a novelty for a long time, the synthesiser and drum machine derived pop of the late 1970s and early 1980s finally landed the squeals and squelches of solder and circuit y in the mainstream, validating an extensive period of painstaking research and experimentation dating back to the late 19th Century. The connect ion between Edgard Varese, La Roux, Brian Eno, The Human League and The Plastic Cow Goes Moo is a complex and solder-heavy one. A Plugged In State Of Mind explores this long and exhaustive legacy and unearths the greatest albums, experiences and tunes from over a century of electronic sound. From anarchic sound art manifestos of the early 1900s to the three minute radio-friendly hits of the late Twentieth Century, via tape manipulations, WWII surplus gadgetry, synthetic versions of the Beat les and the development and domination of the synthesiser, the sequencer and their descendants which form the basic building blocks of much of the music we listen to today, the history of electronic music is a strange wonderland of cosmic highs and offbeat creativity; a story never less than compelling in its experimentalism and competitiveness. Key works by familiar early innovators such as Schaeffer, Cage, Stockhausen, Henry and Varese are explored, along with modern envelope pushers such as Aphex Twin and Squarepusher and lesser known unsung heroes and key equipment, such as The IBM 7090 Computer and Digital To Sound Transducer and The CSIRAC Computer. Key recordings are used as chronological touchstones for the story, and provide the reader with highly recommended entry points into this sometimes challenging universe. The author’s familiar, joyful style also lends a very accessible air to the subj ect . A companion CD set is also scheduled for release around the time of publication, and we anticipate a good deal of press and enthusiasm for a subject that any music fan or enthusiast for human technological development will find intriguing. Dave Henderson was managing director of Q, Mojo and Kerrang! for ten years. A former Sounds journalist who wrote about everything from Cabaret Voltaire to Can, Depeche Mode to Klaus Schulze, his foray into the history of electronic music has been many years in the making, and the resultant vinyl collection constitutes a legacy to some of the wildest material ever released.
