Iconography - Bill Nelson's Orchestra Arcana

Iconography
NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THE DEBUT ALBUM BY BILL NELSON’S ORCHESTRA ARCANA – UNAVAILABLE FOR OVER TEN YEARS
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS imprint Cocteau Discs, the home of BILL NELSON’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001, continues their series of on-going releases with the release of a newly remastered edition of the album, "ICONOGRAPHY”. The album was issued in 1986 credited to ORCHESTRA ARCANA, due to the contractual situation Bill found himself in with CBS Records. The music within comprises recordings made at Bill’s Echo Observatory home studio in 1984 and 1985.
BILL NELSON reflected on the album thus; "Whilst these recordings are "lo fi” in nature, I have always been fond of them. These recordings serve as a reminder that expensive technology isn’t always the key to creativity”.
"Iconography” is a fine album that remains fascinating and engaging nearly three decades later.
The Cocteau Discs edition fully restores the original album artwork and features a new note by Bill Nelson. It also features two bonus tracks from the "Sex Psyche Etc.” EP released in 1985.

This album was originally recorded in 1983. The Times were the brainchild of ex-Television Personalities member Edward Ball and also featured Treacey and Alan McGee. The TVPs have recently reformed and had a successful album release on Domino records earlier this year.
Re-issued with seven bonus tracks which have never been on CD before this album is a dream for many collectors.

BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS imprint Cocteau Discs, the home of BILL NELSON’s catalogue between 1971 and 2001, continues their series of on-going releases with the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the album, "SIMPLEX”.

In addition, Nelson added further complimentary recordings made at his Echo Observatory studio in 1987 and 1988 to complete the album.
Described by BILL NELSON as; "One of my favourite albums. "Simplex” is, in essence, a collection of miniatures, a box of sonic jewellery”, the album is a fine collection of Bill’s musical sketches.

Small Time / Hey Hey We’re The Manqués 2CD

Formed in the mid ‘80s, The Servants was a vehicle for songwriter David Westlake. The band was included on the NME's C86 compilation, and by 1987 future Auteur Luke Haines had joined on guitar. Their debut album, "Disinterest”, was released in 1989, and they began to work on a follow-up, "Small Time”, before disbanding in the early 1990s.
Previously unreleased, and unheard by anyone outside of the band, ‘Small Time’ is the Servants' lost second album – "the best album… a strange and wonderful thing,” according to Haines in his sleeve-notes. In his book ‘Bad Vibes’, Haines describes the band’s first album, "Disinterest”, as 'existential art rock , ten years too late and fifteen years too early’. The songs on ‘Small Time’, he says are 'more mysterious, strange and beautiful, transcending their influence and sounding like nothing else.'
CD TWO of this set – "Hey Hey We’re The Manqués” – includes rehearsal versions of songs from "Disinterest”, taped before the album was recorded. "Disinterest” was recently included in MOJO magazine's list of 'the greatest British indie records of all time.'
Compiled and mastered by David Westlake, with sleeve-notes by Luke Haines, this set has been produced with the full involvement and approval of the artists and is a must-hear for anybody with an interest in adventurous, ethereal alternative pop.
