Something About Suburbia, The Sixties Sound Of Tim Andrews - Tim Andrews

Something About Suburbia, The Sixties Sound Of Tim Andrews
Chris Andrews is best known for the six singles he cut for EMI’s Parlophone label between 1967 and 1970 under the name of Tim Andrews. (a name change to avoid confusion with the other singer/songwriter Chris Andrews who was already well established on the music scene).
His superb solo recordings – collected here for the first time – represent only part of an eclectic music career that could have only happened in the sixties.
Prior to signing to EMI as a solo artist in 1967, Andrews had played the ‘Artful Dodger’ in both the London and New York casts of Lionel Bart’s Oliver, before returning to London in 1965 and doing stints in such seminal mod and freakbeat bands as The Gremlins and Fleur De Lys, as both a singer and guitarist.
During his time with Fleur De Lys, Andrews also provided the lead vocal on the highly rated ‘Summer of Love’ single Reflections of Charles Brown, which was issued under the name Rupert’s People.
The extraordinary cuts where accompanied by Paul Korda (later of acid folk album‘Passing Stranger’ fame) come on like a Bee Gees / Franki Valli mash up.
Something About Suburbia brings together all of the 1966 -1970 solo and group recordings that feature Andrews as lead vocalist and uncovers the fascinating story of one of the most versatile English musicians of the sixties.

SCARED TO GET HAPPY A STORY OF INDIE-POP 1980-1989
SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) is the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. Compiled in loosely chronological fashion, the five CDs chart Indie Pop’s development from the post punk era and the dominance of Scottish bands through to its genre-defining C86 period and onto the end of the decade, with the arrival of Madchester and the shoegazing sound.

Inspired by the Nuggets compilations, the box set boasts 134 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from all the key labels of the period – Creation, Factory, Cherry Red, Rough Trade, Sarah, Subway Organisation, Zoo, Kitchenware, Pink, Chapter 22, In Tape, Medium Cool, Lazy, Dreamworld, 53rd & 3rd, Ron Johnson, el, Vindaloo, Red Rhino, Food, etc.

Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Primal Scream, Aztec Camera, Stone Roses, Pulp, the Wonder Stuff, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, the Inspiral Carpets, the Soup Dragons, the Wedding Present, James, the La’s, del Amitri, the Primitives, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Prefab Sprout, the Shamen, Cud, the Bluebells, Black, the House Of Love, Strawberry Switchblade, Pop Will Eat Itself, the Darling Buds, Fuzzbox, That Petrol Emotion, the Railway Children, Jamie Wednesday (as Carter USM), the Milltown Brothers and the Boo Radleys.  

The box set boasts a stylish 54-page booklet with a lengthy sleeve-note detailing each track and illustrations of the records and bands involved.

A few tracks (Strawberry Switchblade, Soup Dragons, Bluebells, Close Lobsters, etc.) have never officially been released before. Many others are extremely rare and make their debut on CD.

SCARED TO GET HAPPY will be promoted by a mini-festival at London’s 229 club on June 22nd, with an impressive roster: the Primitives, the BMX Bandits, the Brilliant Corners, the June Brides, Mighty Mighty, the Wolfhounds, the Popguns, 14 Iced Bears, the Blue Orchids and Yeah Yeah Noh.  

RELEASE DATE: 24/06/2013

Lovely 2CD 25th Anniversary Edition
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).
Lovely was The Primitives’ debut album. Issued in April 1988 on the back of the success of ‘Crash’, it peaked at No. 6 in the UK, staying on the charts for ten weeks, and yet is unavailable on CD.
The Primitives’ profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a brand new studio album Echoes And Rhymes last year and Cherry Red’s 2-CD compilation of the band’s pre-RCA recordings, Everything’s Shining Bright, which surfaced in March.
This 25th anniversary 2-CD set boasts most of the band’s B-sides and other rare tracks from that successful year, as well as including those hit singles in full:
Crash (February 1988) No.5
Out Of Reach (April 1988) No.25
Way Behind Me (September 1988) No.36
Compiled with the help of guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

Release Date: 10/06/2013
