Quality Street: Expanded Edition - World of Twist

Quality Street: Expanded Edition

· World Of Twist are a deeply revered, respected band and one of the greatest ‘lost’ bands from Manchester. Genius is a moniker often given too easily but in World Of Twist’s case, not nearly enough. They cut through the hazy end of Madchester with a suaveness, a wit and an knowingness showcased by their collection of psychedeliic, soulful, madcap indie pop. It set them apart from anything else at the time – "a Roxy Music for the space age” as Louder Than War put it.

 

· Quality Street, their only album, was released in 1991. It features the singles The Storm, the ecstatic cover of the Stones She’s A Rainbow, Sweets and the legendary Sons Of The Stage.

 

· The band left a mark on many people who have achieved greatness - Jeremy Deller, one of the finest artists the UK has ever produced, included a "We Miss The World Of Twist” float in his work ‘Procession’ at the Manchester International Festival. Noel Gallagher nearly called Oasis Sons Of The Stage and Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye have covered that track in tribute to a band who influenced them so much. Noel even personally insisted that Jamie Fry, whose photographs grace the album artwork, was used for Oasis shoots.

 

· Now after many years of being unavailable, this legendary album is now available on CD and LP.

 

· Expanded to 2CDs, the album comes with a selection of B-sides chosen by founder member, Gordon King, plus the two Radio 1 sessions for John Peel and Mark Goodier.

 

· The album will include a 24 page booklet featuring extensive sleevenotes by Gordon King and full of memorabilia and rare photos from the World Of Twist archive.

 

We miss the World Of Twist. Do you?

Killer Album
 Ruthless Rap Assassins broke the mould. They shifted the nucleus of UK rap away from the capital to their native Manchester, offering a thinking man's alternative to the indie-dance of Happy Mondays and Stone Roses. Their debut LP, KILLER ALBUM, reflected the black British experience in a unique, often poignant way. All the way live from the notorious North Hulme estate, the trio of Anderson, Carson and a pre- Black Grape Kermit eschewed the phony Brooklyn accents of many London contemporaries for a hard-bitten, sometimes bitter but always razor sharp trawl through the harsh realities of low-budget living packed with depth, humour and social comment. The 20th anniversary edition of KILLER ALBUM comes with extensive liner notes and rare photos. Our Price: £9.95

More Songs About Love & Hate
 I think possibly we’ve got higher standards than most groups. If you can t add two or three new songs to the set every month, then it s not worth carrying on. Peter Coyne, NME 1987 When people reminisce now on Brand 80s, they are presented with a glitzy, money-pumped Club Tropicana. Well, think again. The Godfathers, who were indeed signed to the same label, Epic, as Club Tropicana author George Michael himself, presented hard, crunching, socially-conscious pop with a fierce R&B/mod sensibility. Their three albums for Epic, Birth, School, Work, Death, More Songs About Love and Hate and Unreal World, all offered a powerful antidote to the puffed-up importance of the music scene.

By the time the Godfathers released More Songs About Love and Hate, they were making waves in America while still seeking chart action back in their home country. They had become the name to drop. Formed from the ashes of the Sid Presley Experience in 1985, the band brothers vocalist Peter and bassist Chris Coyne, guitarists Kris Dollimore and Mike Gibson and drummer George Mazur, had enjoyed considerable success with the compilation of their indie hits, Hit By Hit (on their Corporate Image label) and their first Epic album More Songs About Love & Hate was released on 9 May 1989. The cover of the album had a stunning drawing of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor on it that had to be withdrawn for the American market, amidst fears that the actress would sue. Peter Coyne explained: It wasn’t meant to denigrate Elizabeth Taylor or Richard Burton’s memory.

Ghost Town - 13 Hits of The Specials & Fun Boy Three
UNFORTUNATELY THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. Cherry Red Records apologises for the unavailability of this album, however if you would like to be notified when it is on sale again then please email matti@cherryred.co.uk. Thanks.

The fifteen tracks are all new recordings of the hits of the Specials and Fun Boy Three featuring lead vocals from roadie turned band member, Neville Staples. Coventry's finest, the Specials, were leading lights of the ska revival at the turn of the 80's, enjoying 12 top forty hits including the massive number one classic, Ghost Town. At the height of the band's success Staples (percussion & vocals), Terry Hall (vocals) and guitarist Lynval Golding left the group in order to form the intriguing 'Fun Boy Three'. The trio's debut single, the haunting "The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum" effectively established the Fun Boy Three as both original and innovative commentators whose work would compare favourably with their mother group, the Specials. Both bands have their finest tunes reworked on this new release including contributions from Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's and remixes of 'Ghost Town' and 'Our Lips Are Sealed'.
