Released on 18/01/10. Classix Nouveaux formed from the ashes of X Ray Spex when the band auditioned for a new front person in the Melody Maker after the sudden departure of their wild wailer Poly Styrene. The enigmatic Sal Solo was chosen by guitarist Jak Airport and drummer BP Hurding and with the addition of bassist Mik Sweeney from Sal’s previous band the News, a soon to be cult band was born.

The band’s heavily made up, theatrical image led them to be quickly associated with the New Romantic movement as they filled the alternative dance floor with their synth-driven beats, though their sound was more guitar driven than that of their peers Japan, and Ultravox.

After three successful previous Classix Nouveaux’s releases along with one Sal Solo album Cherry Red is thrilled to announce the Liberty Singles Collection. Featuring A and B sides some of which have never been on CD before, this is a must have for any fan of Classix Nouveaux, and a perfect starting point for anyone who has missed this criminally ignored band. With sleeve-notes by front man Sal Solo.
