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

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

Please note all the signed copies of this album have now SOLD OUT!

Rock And Roll Animals
Cherry Red Records is delighted to release the brand new solo album from Luke Haines (The Servants, The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof& Black Box Recorder).
Rock N Roll Animals is a psychedelic story for grown-ups (and children). Jimmy Pursey is a frisky fox; Nick Lowe – a solid badger and Gene Vincent – a cat who's seen a bit more of life than most of us. Three furry freaks. Three Rock n Roll animals. The fable of our four-pawed shamen is narrated by the good folk of Magic Town.
This is a story of righteous rock n roll and how our three rock n roll animal friends, when not frolicking in the undergrowth, do battle with their most unrighteous nemesis – a fuck ugly bird (from Tyneside) made of steel and wire called The Angel Of The North.
The album will be preceded by a 7” single of the title track with two exclusive non-album B-Sides on 15th July. The album will also be released on limited edition 12” vinyl.
The album will coincide with the selected UK cinema release of the feature-length documentary film ‘Art Will Save The World’ about Luke Haines by Niall McCann.

Release Date: 29/07/2013

Sebastopol Rd: Expanded Edition

3 loop music are proud to announce the release of Mega City Four’s "Sebastopol Rd” as a 39 track, 2CD expanded edition.

 

  • Remastered
  • 2CD set covering all the studio output from the Sebastopol Rd era
  • 10 previously unreleased tracks
  • Compiled by the band
  • Includes 16 page booklet with sleevenotes from the band, rare photos and memorabilia

 

Sebastopol Rd was Mega City Four’s first album for their new major label home, Big Life. With the success of debut album "Tranzphobia”, follow up "Who Cares Wins”, and a constant touring schedule around the UK, Europe and the US they built up a solid, devoted fanbase easily identifiable in one of the many MC4 t-shirts. By this time, the band were appearing on the front covers of the NME and Melody Maker and the crossover to a major label was no great surprise.

 

Teaming up with producer Jessica Corcoran (Senseless Things, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Shed Seven and The Wonder Stuff) gave the album a pop-punk crunch and more emphasis on the pop than previous material. It features the Top 40 hit ‘Stop’, ‘Prague’, covered by Muse in 2010 on the Resistance single as a tribute to the band who had influenced them, and CD1 now includes the two singles (plus their attendant b-sides) Words That Say and Shivering Sand, their highest charting release.

 

This 2CD set, 21 years after the initial release, gathers together all the studio material from this period and adds 10 previously unreleased tracks, including demos and the John Peel Session from September 1993. It includes all the b-sides and demos taken from the box loads of cassettes and DATs in guitarist Gerry’s shed.

 

FURTHER INFORMATION

The quartet of school friends from Farnborough, Hampshire, formed Mega City Four in 1987. They went on to release five studio albums and are cited as an influence by Muse, one of the biggest bands in the world today. They were always an incendiary live band putting in thrilling performances and winning a devoted fanbase. Leadman and chief songwriter, Wiz sadly passed away suddenly in 2006 leaving a legacy of fast-paced, crunching power pop songs that are often overlooked by many who regard this era of music as the template for much of the emo scene today.
