Cherry Red is delighted to announce the next releases for
the rejuvenated Turpentine Records, the label founded by the late
singer-songwriter/author/artist KEVIN COYNE.
SIREN was the debut album by Kevin Coyne with Siren, the band he founded
with former Bonzo Dog Band bassist Dave Clague and pianist/guitarist Nick
Cudworth.
The LP was originally issued on John Peel’s
Dandelion label in 1969.
SIREN has been out-of-print on CD for many years.
This deluxe 2-CD edition has been re-mastered, with a whole bonus disc
of rare home and studio recordings from the period, previously only available
on fanclub-style releases.
Also boasts the band’s first demo for Blue Horizon Records and non-album
singles for Dandelion.
The booklet features new and insightful sleeve-notes written specially
for this release by Nick Cudworth, and a rare piece by Kevin Coyne from 1970,
written for the underground magazine KLAP.
Includes rare and previously unseen photos and cuttings of Siren in
their heyday.
An in-depth look at an underrated band, and a fascinating
glimpse at the formative recordings of an artist who would inspire John Lydon,
Sting, Ben Watt and Will Oldham and would collaborate with Robert Wyatt, Andy
Summers, Dagmar Krause, Brendan Croker, Gary Lucas and The Mekons’ Jon
Langford.
“Most of the album is good time rock-on-out-music a la the Flamin’
Groovies… one of those (albums) you keep coming back to when the night gets
cold and the wine is almost out. I play it a lot, and that’s the nicest thing I
can say about an album.” Ed Ward – Rolling Stone
“Siren just came as a breath of fresh air really, in the same way that
like a generation later The Ramones did. When you just thought ‘Thank God for
that!’ You hadn’t realised how bored you’d become…”

John Peel,
1997
