Cymande - Cymande

Cymande
•    Cymande (pronounced Sah-mahn-day) are a legendary funk group formed in 1971 in London by musicians from Guyana, Jamaica and Saint Vincent. Their name was derived from a calypso word for Dove, symbolizing peace and love.

•    The band were signed by producer John Schroeder to his Alaska label in the UK (and Janus in North America). Cymande went on to release three albums in the early-to-mid 1970s.

•    Cherry Red Records are proud to reissue all three original Cymande albums.

•    Their debut, Cymande (1972), boasted perhaps their best-known funk anthem, ‘The Message’, and the much-sampled ‘Bra’, adopted by pioneering DJs like DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash before being plundered by De La Soul.

•    This reissue boasts two non-album single edits and new sleeve-notes written with the cooperation with the band and John Schroeder.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Miniatures One + Two Edited by Morgan Fisher
Featuring artists as diverse as The Residents, Robert Fripp, XTC'sAndy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and The Pretenders Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, Morgan Fisher's1980 release Miniatures truly was a first. Overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and Miniatures was born out of Morgan’s’ precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Fast forward 15 years, several projects and the development of new realms of communication and data transfer afforded by the Internet, and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel. Little did he know that this project would take six years to complete and involve an international cast of players (taking in 18 countries across five continents), but it proved truly worth both the effort and the wait. The astounding Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 musicians and artists of all genres - the bizarre, the eccentric, the contemplative, the rebel-rousers, the pioneers and the philosophers and no stone was left unturned in its creation. As with the original album, one minute creations were composed, then sequenced and edited by Morgan, again meeting with rave reviews and an acknowledgement that Fisher had produced something both original and vital to those with any interest in music existing outside the mainstream. Comprising both legendary tiny masterpiece collections, this new set brings together all one hundred and thirteen tracks (yes, 113!) in one two-disc collection for the first time, freshly boosted and tweaked for 2008.

Slow Music
Recorded in 1980, this collaboration between master tape manipulator Morgan Fisher and legendary improvisational saxophonist Lol Coxhill sees the two explore a mutual interest in treating their work as mere raw material for further experimentation and re-modeling.
Working in Fisher’s Notting Hill home studio, Coxhill’s performances (including Handel’s ‘Largo’ and his own ‘Pretty Little Girl’) were recorded and reworked using a number of innovative studio techniques to create entirely new material, some of which was used as a background for further performances by the pair, the rest treated to further manipulation via tape delays, synthesiser filters and other electronic equipment, resulting in multi layered tape loop pieces, drones and sound collages.
Originally released on Pipe Records (funded by Cherry Red founder Iain McNay), this reissued edition has been remastered by Morgan himself, and is accompanied by a bonus track, ‘Play Quiet’. Originally available only on a cassette given away with the UK’s ‘ZG Magazine’, this piece features music performed by John White, Gavin Bryars and Dave Smith at the launch party for Fisher’s ‘Miniatures’ album and collaged with remixed material from "Slow Music”. A fantastic rarity available here on CD for the first time.
With sleeve-notes and reprographics by Fisher, including a timeline of both artists’ careers and their original texts from the 1980 release, this edition is a must have for fans of either artist, enthusiasts of home studio techniques and lovers of experimental recordings of any kind.
· Bonus track featuring John White and Gavin Bryars
· Digitally remastered
· Sleeve-notes and reprographics by Morgan Fisher

God
Named after a Roland Kirk album, RIP RIG + PANIC were one of the most exciting bands of the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole.
With lead singer NENEH CHERRY, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on CD.
All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles.
Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.
Issued in 1981, GOD was RIP RIG + PANIC’s debut album, issued as a club-friendly 12” double-pack. It’s now swelled by the non-album singles ‘Go, Go, Go! (This Is It)’ and ‘Bob Hope Takes Risks’ and their B-sides plus the NME cassette track ‘Billy Eckstine’s Shirt Collar’.

Guiding the production of these reissues, Mark Springer is still heavily involved in the world of music and art. More information can be found at www.markspinger.net and www.exit.co.uk

New York In The '70s

Luke Haines

New York in the '70s- May 26th 2014.

A mythic re-imagining of the New York Rock n Roll scene 1972 - 1979.

Scene 1 – A Dorset Chalkhill, Britain 2014.

A gigantic mythical naked man awakens from thousand year kip. Chico, a messenger bird, is speaking in tongues and whispering a poem into the naked dude's chalky ear:

"Oh Little Johnny Jewel

He's so cool

He has no decision

He just trying to sell a vision

Chico (something of a savant, bless) is reciting the lyrics to Television's seismic year zeroin classic Little Johnny Jewel.

"He's just trying to sell a vision,” repeats the messenger bird. With an ancient rumble, the nakeddude stands up to reveal his true height of 180 ft.

"I am Cerne Abbus Giant, and Tom Verlaine is my main man,” bellows the Chalk Giant. "I awaken from Dorset Hills as the seeker. The seeker of Mythic Muthafuckin' Rock n Roll. Show me the way to CBGBs in the 1970s Chico. We will bestride the Atlantic and I'll carry you on my fantastic 36 ft phallus. Climb aboard Chico.”

"Oh my,” says the bird.

Scene 2 – New York City. One year later

The Kaballistic order of OM AKA The Real Dead Boys, comprising of Alan Ginsberg, Jim Carroll, Stiv Baters, Johnny Thunders and Sid Vicious are holding an invocation, on 213 Park Avenue South. The chanting begins at 23.23pm:

Shalom Shalom - David Johanson

Shalom Shalom - John Genzale

Shalom Shalom - Jerry Nolan

Shalom Shalom - Killer Kane

Shalom Shalom - Max's Kansas City

Shalom Shalom - The Mercer Arts Centre

Shalom Shalom - Syl Sylvain
