Uptight (The Early Recordings 1985-1986) - Mighty Lemon Drops (The)

Uptight (The Early Recordings 1985-1986)
Hailing from the Midlands, THE MIGHTY LEMON DROPS emerged in the mid-1980s as one of the most exciting Indie Rock bands of their time.

After their Indie hit debut single, ‘Like An Angel’ on Dan Treacy’s Dreamworld label, they signed to Chrysalis’ imprint Blue Guitar and then Sire, releasing six studio albums before disbanding in 1992. 

Uptight offers a unique insight into the band’s roots. Alongside that classic debut EP are BBC radio tracks and a session for the NME’s C86 cassette (including their C86 track ‘Happy Head’). It ends with their mid-1985 cassette, sold at gigs, Some Of My Best Friends Are Songs, with Martin Gilks (later with the Wonder Stuff) on drums, which ends with a cover of The Velvet Underground classic, ‘There She Goes Again’.

Uptight has been compiled and annotated by band members Dave Newton and Tony Linehan. 

Tracks 1-4: issued on Dreamworld, 1985

Tracks 5-8: BBC sessions for Andy Kershaw/Janice Long
Tracks 9-11: C86 session, March 1986
Tracks 12-16: Birmingham Demo session, July 1986

Leave the Straight Life Behind: Expanded Edition
Legend has it that a chance meeting with John Peel in the Rough Trade record shop set Bob on the road to becoming a true indie favourite in the late 80s and early 90s, with Peel championing the band throughout their career. 

Starting life in 1986, the band released a series of acclaimed singles, and with each single release, they toured and promised an album.  Eventually they got enough money together to release Leave The Straight Life Behind on their own House Of Teeth label in 1991. 

The album met with rave reviews but due to the collapse of Rough Trade Distribution it was frustratingly difficult to find.  Now available again for the first time in many years, the album has been expanded to 2CDs, with a second disc including all four of their Radio 1 sessions, 3 for John Peel and 1 for Simon Mayo. 

·       Unavailable for many years
·       Second disc includes all their BBC sessions, including 3 Peel Sessions
·       16 previously unreleased tracks
·       Extensive packaging includes sleevenotes by the band, rare photos and memorabilia from the band’s archive

Bob was formed in 1986 by Richard Blackborow (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Simon Armstrong (guitar, vocals), Jem Morris and a drum machine.  Gary Connors replaced the drum machine only to be replaced himself in 1988 by Dean Leggett, who had drummed for Jamie Wednesday, the outfit that spawned Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine.  Morris was replaced by Stephen Hersom prior to Leave The Straight Life Behind.  Following the various pieces of bad luck that befell the band, they became disillusioned with the industry and finally split in 1995, leaving a legacy of eight singles, one compilation of early singles, the album and a legion of happy fans who had been lucky enough to see them live.  The single ‘Convenience’ graced the John Peel Festive Fifty in 1989.

New Wave - Expanded 2 CD edition
"With their 1993 debut album, New Wave, The Auteurs established themselves as one of England's best guitar bands of the early '90s” Allmusic.com

Fronted by Luke Haines, The Auteurs arrived on the cusp of shifting musical scenes. Madchester was dead, Britpop was about to be born. · Originally released in February 1993 on Hut Records, New Wave was the debut album by The Auteurs. Produced by Phil Vinall and Haines, the album featured the singles Showgirl and How I Could Be Wrong. The album was well received on release, perceived as being part of a nascent Brit-Pop scene, and was nominated in the second Mercury Music Prize in 1993 (won by Suede) and was in Q magazine’s Top 10 Albums of 1993.

This re-issue, featuring 34 tracks across 2CDs compiled by Haines, includes key b-sides, acoustic tracks, the band’s BBC Radio 1 session from 1993 and 6 previously unreleased 4 track demos straight from Haines’s archive.

The 2CD set comes in lavish packaging and includes brand new sleevenotes by Luke Haines.

C86 – THE DELUXE EDITION (3CD Boxset)
Cherry Red is delighted to release this deluxe 3 CD boxset edition of the original iconic NME indie cassette compilation.

Curated by the same team behind last year’s award-winning 5-CD box set Scared To Get Happy, this highly anticipated reissue will be
housed in a 'clamshell'-style hinged box, with a chunky booklet including a 11,500-word sleeve-note by Neil Taylor and lots of pretty pictures.

In the NME's own words...


"
The album, first released on a cassette with NME in 1986, went on to inspire a generation of indie bands and features music by Primal Scream, The Pastels, Shop Assistants and The Wedding Present among many others.


Former NME writer Neil Taylor, who assisted in compiling the original 22 track album nearly 30 years ago, has written the liner notes for the reissue and helped with the curation of two bonus discs of material which will include songs exclusive to CD and some never released before including tracks by The Love Act, North of Cornwallis and Paul Groovy & The Pop Art Experience."
