Everything’s Shining Bright, the Lazy Recordings 1985-87 2CD - Primitives (The)

Everything’s Shining Bright, the Lazy Recordings 1985-87 2CD
*** WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED AMOUNT OF SIGNED COPIES AVAILABLE, PLEASE ORDER NOW TO GET YOUR COPY!! ***

(PLEASE NOTE ALL SIGNED COPIES ARE NOW SOLD OUT!!)

Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with "Crash”, kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al).
Between 1985 and 1987, the band issued five singles/EP’s on independent label Lazy Records (also home to My Bloody Valentine and later Birdland) before signing with RCA.
Everything’s Shining Bright is named after their planned Lazy Records album, which was abandoned when the band left the label – indeed, seven of the ten previously unissued tracks here stem from those scotched LP sessions. Also unearthed is the band’s very first demo from 1985, consisting of three tracks including a dry-run through their eventual hit "Crash”.
This 2-CD set also boasts their promo-only live album at the ICA; as such, it offers their entire Lazy output from that period.
Those Lazy singles in full:
Thru The Flowers (May 1986) Indie No.20
Really Stupid (October 1986) Indie No.3
Stop Killing Me (February 1987) Indie No.2
Thru The Flowers (New Version - August 1987) Indie No.3
Ocean Blue (gig freebie 7”)
Compiled with guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a beautifully annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

Release Date: 25/03/2013

I Am A Wallet
McCarthy make a return to Cherry Red this month with their third release, the critically acclaimed and much lauded ‘I Am Wallet’ (CDMRED313). This classic Independent Chart album was originally released in 1997 and has gone on to achieve cult status amongst, receiving praise from the likes of Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers) as one of the most important albums of the 90s (he even wrote a Buried Treasure feature on the album in the November edition of Mojo). Known by todays indie accolites as the band that spawned Tim Gane and Leititia Sadier (who of course went on to form Stereolab), ‘I Am Wallet’ has been unavailable for many years, until now! This definitive edition features 4 rare bonus tracks as well as liner notes from St. Etienne’s Bob Stanley.

I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight
The definitive Boyce and Hart collection! Bobby Hart and Tommy Boyce were popmeisters who wrote songs for the early Phil Spector productions among many others, but perhaps their best known project was The Monkees! .Turned down for roles early in the auditions, they landed the perhaps more artistically satisfying and lucrative roles as writer/producers for the music content of the show. Indeed, it was their own band, The Candy Store Prophets, who ghosted for The Monkees on their early sessions, including all the early hits and successful album tracks. Efforts by other Screen Gems writers and producers, from Neil Sedaka to The Tokens, to usurp their roles and get in on the Monkees cash bonanza were rather discouraging to our heroes, the undignified scramble leading to The Monkees decision to play their own music, and leaving Boyce and Hart out in the cold...or so it seemed...as well as continuing to contribute songs, they took a sideways leap. Effectively, they had already had a couple of number one singles and a number one album, so a "solo" (or should that be "Duo") deal with A&M was a no brainer. Tommy and Bobby set forth on a career as bona fide Pop stars in their own right, starting with a major hit in "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight" and recording three albums and a number of singles of wonderful Monkees style California pop...and why not? They were there from day one - TV appearances, tours, the usual Pop star treadmill which they'd avoided by being backroom boys beckoned. Leaving a superpop legacy of brilliant songs, for this their FIRST CD collection.

On The Hot Dog Streets CD Edition
Here it is at last… The long awaited third album from Go-Kart Mozart. The band formed by Lawrence (ex Felt & Denim).

West Midlands are proud to announce that Go-Kart Mozart are "On The Hot Dog Streets”: A double-album for your delectation and contains all the trademarks of an innovative release. It will be issued on CD, LP and digital formats.

As well as an extensive mail-out from the Cherry Red office to all the main music magazines and broadsheets, the new album will be actively promoted by our estimable radio plugger.

Remember – get dirt on your needle with West Midland Records…

Advertisements for my band – "Go-Kart Mozart have offered us their contempt. The entire album is a rag bag of contemptuous attitudes. Contempt for art – contempt for sex – contempt for their country and most especially contempt for the audience that might be listening. All this, it must be said, is not perceived through a tin ear or a dim mind, but through a widescreen composition of what ails us most, while we are lost in our fallacies displaying an acute distaste, we are forced to finally see our own reflection and scream back at it in abject terror…”

LP VERSION AVAILABLE HERE!

"On The Hot Dog Streets features Lawrence’s dour humour and melodic skills on 17 songs of such perfect wit and economy, you wish there were 17 more”
– Will Hodgkinson, The Times, 22/6/2012

"Whatever you make of it, you’d have a hard time arguing On The Hot Dog Streets is anything other than unique: the sound of a man pursuing a singular uncompromising artistic vision, as he has been doing for the last 30 years. You might call it inspirational after all.”
4 Stars – Alexis Petridis, The Guardian, 22/6/2012

"Lawrence Hayward, former leader of Felt and Denim, is one of underground pop’s true eccentrics.”
4/5 - The Independent on Sunday, 24/6/2012

"Lawrence’s pop vision extends to sleeve notes featuring a reading list and even a lonely-hearts ad. It all makes this a perfect album.”
5/5 – Will Hodkinson, The Times Saturday Review, 23/6/2012
