Folly - Kitchens Of Distinction

Folly
"I can listen to a British Sea Power record and think: ‘You know what? Kitchens Of Distinction were ahead of their time.’”           STEVE LAMACQ / BBC RADIO / 2013  


Kitchens Of Distinction return with a brand new studio album, ‘Folly’, their fifth album and the first for 19 years.

In Summer 2011 Patrick Fitzgerald asked Julian Swales whether he would like to work on some new songs together. With the constraints of distance, day jobs and family duties taken into account, things slowly started to come together. Dan Goodwin was invited to join in the fun and eventually ten songs loomed out of the mist. Ten new songs that sound not as a pastiche of a band 20 years on but, as Julian puts it, are "like a new version sucked through time and space.” 

The songs were recorded in Patrick’s studio in Derbyshire and at Julian’s studio in Brighton. The songs were mixed with Pascal Gabriel (Kylie, Goldfrapp, Inspiral Carpets, Ladyhawke) in April 2013.   FURTHER INFORMATION Kitchens of Distinction were formed in London in 1986 and started and ended their career with a Single of the Week in the UK music press. In between they put out four albums and won the hearts and minds of a generation. Hit singles generally eluded them (the band’s third single "The 3rd Time We Opened The Capsule” did however make it into the ‘NME Writers 100 Best Indie Singles Ever’ list in 1992) but they fared better in the US with "Drive That Fast” hitting number one on the college radio charts over there.  

A compact trio comprising of Patrick Fitzgerald (Vocals, Bass), Julian Swales (Guitars) and Dan Goodwin (Drums, Percussion) they were known for their swirling maelstrom of guitar effects - coined in the press as like being a ‘sonic cathedral’ – and Patrick’s introspective and unabashed lyrics that often dealt with his own homosexuality. They were tagged with the genre ‘shoegaze’ (UK) and ‘dreampop’ (US) although, like many of their peers similarly defined, they never felt comfortable with either term. Their sound was inspired largely by their love of Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen and peers A R Kane and it went on to be heard in a new generation of bands like Interpol, Bloc Party, Editors and British Sea Power.  

 "I love them to death. Long may they burn.”  GRAHAM LINEHAN / writer Father Ted, Black Books, The IT Crowd

Pygmalion
Pygmalion is the final album by the band Slowdive, released on February 6, 1995. A departure from their previous two albums, Pygmalion incorporated a more experimental sound tilted towards ambient electronic music, with sparse, atmospheric arrangements. All compositions were by Neil Halstead. Lyrics on tracks Miranda and Visions of La by Rachel Goswell. The cover illustration is by acclaimed designer Steven Woodhouse. It was the final album before Slowdive disbanded in 1995, an event widely associated with the demise of shoegazing. This re-issue long out of print now has an enhanced booklet with new sleeve notes by Mojo’s Kieron Tyler. Re-mastered from original tapes, it features a whole disc of rare demos never before released on CD.

Press:-

"Inspired by drug-fuelled trips to Brixton clubnight Quirky, ‘Pygmalion’ was mainly conceived by guitarist and songwriter Neil Halstead in his west London flat – instruments are looped into infinity, while Halstead and Rachel Goswell’s vocals float in and out of the ether.”  

-Nat Cramp (NME – February 11th, 2012)

Nightout / Spirit of St Louis 2CD
EllenFoley gained high public recognition singing the duet with Meat Loaf on the hit single ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’ from the 1977 album Bat out of Hell.Although Karla DeVitois featured on themusic video, DeVito is lip syncing to Foley's vocals. Her debut album Night Outwas released in 1979; the album's single "What's A Matter Baby" was a minor hit, reaching No.92 on the US Charts.The album itself peaked at No.152, and was produced by an Hunter and Mick Ronson. Foley recorded a memorable duet with Ian Hunter in 1980, ‘We Gotta Get Outta Here’. Her creative relationship with Hunter also led her to singing backing vocals on the Iron City House rockers' 1980 album Have a Good Time but Get out Alive!, produced by Hunter, Ronson, and The E Street Band's Steven Van Zandt. She can also be heard on the 1980Blue Öyster Cult album Mirrors singing on the title cut, and also on The Clash album Sandinista! (also released in 1980), in the songs ‘Hitsville UK’ and ‘Corner Soul’, and on the unreleased track ‘Blonde Rock 'n' Roll’. All four members of The Clash appeared on her second album The Spirit of St. Louis in 1981, and Mick Jones and Joe Strummerco-wrote a number of songs for the album.Jones produced the album, which also featured members of The Blockheads, and peaked at No.137 on the US charts. The Clash's hit song ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’, written and sung by Jones, was about the turbulent relationship he shared with Foley at the time. This timely release was done in conjunction with Ellen who has provided fascinating insights into the recording of both albums. Both albums re-mastered from original tapes and contain notes by Malcolm Dome

The Best Of...
WE HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF SIGNED COPIES OF THIS ALBUM AVAILABLE! ORDER NOW BEFORE THEY ALL GO!

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

Cherry Red Records is delighted to announce a best of collection featuring one of the most unique and innovative alternative rock acts of the last twenty years – Drugstore.

Drugstore formed in 1993 and went on to enjoy notable success throughout the rest of the decade with two UK album chart entries for "Drugstore” and "White Magic For Lovers”. They also enjoyed a UK top twenty single with "El President” a duet between Drugstore singer Isabel Monteiro and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

This collection brings together songs spanning the band’s four albums: from the majestic heights of the socially charged ‘El President’, to the fragility of ‘‘Song for Pessoa’ via the disturbing beauty of ‘Clouds’.

The track list and artwork were created by singer and main songwriter Isabel Monteiro, and includes an exclusive version of 'I Know I could' recorded especially for this collection, a previously unreleased version of 'No More Tears', a remastered version of 'Wayward Daughter, and a new version of 'Say Hello' recorded especially for this Best Of.
 


Isabel’s intimate, smoky vocals and pitch-dark lyrical subject matter, along with the band’s sorrowful guitar and minimalist arrangements, stick them firmly in the lovelorn, caustic company of Dusty in Memphis, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Leonard Cohen.
