    hier kommen die ersten SCRITTI POLITTI-veröffentlichungen, die in dieser form noch nicht erhältlich waren:

    SCRITTI POLITTI - early ROUGH TRADE RTRADCD188 VERÖFFENTLICHUNG: 14.02.2005

    Scritti Politti were one of the first bands to be signed to Rough Trade in the late 70s. Their initial recordings were groundbreaking and although not yet the most accomplished musicians in the world, what they constructed was immediate, cerebral, politicised, and original. ‘Skank Bloc Bologna’, their first single was a triumph of intent, content and style. The sleeve demythologised the whole record making process by including invoices for cutting, labels and pressing. Early, is the first time these recordings have been committed to CD and as Green says, ‘It’s murky and frail stuff cut from old vinyl (the masters are long lost) I found it evocative of extraordinary times’.

    we have waited years for this and at last rough trade have collected the 13 early scritti politti single tracks that were originally released on their own st pancras records via rough trade. nearly all tracks appear on cd for the first time. these cuts are scratchy, rhythmic and scrappy and sound as awkwardly brilliant as the day they were released. it's the most brittle, essential and urgent music made during the booming diy / post punk era of the late 70's. included is the original version of the latter day hit 'the sweetest girl'. the first great reissue of the year.

    01. Skank Bloc Bologna
    02. Is And Ought The Western World
    03. 28/8/78
    04. Scritlocks Door
    05. Opec - Immac

    KIRSTY MACCOLL - kite EMI 07243-866465-2-1 VERÖFFENTLICHUNG: 28.02.2005

    This was the breakthrough studio album from Kirsty, produced by then husband Steve Lillywhite. Kite is packed with vibrant guitar driven hooks and Kirsty's trademark wit and passion. If it appears to tail off in the second half it is only because it opens so brilliantly. A masterpiece.

    Reviews: "Kirsty MacColl can not only write a mean pop tune but can fling the verbal vitriol with the best of them." Q

    Musicians: Kirsty MacColl, Johnny Marr, Pete Glenister, Mel Gaynor, Colin Stuart, David Palmer, Robbie McIntosh, Wes n'Djock, Phil Crowder, Gavyn Wright, Malcolm Griffiths, Guy Barker, David Gilmour, Mark Berrow, Ben Cruft, Wilf Gibson, Roy Gillard, David Woodcock, Stuart Brooks, Phil Todd, Steve Turner, Jamie Talbot.

    03. Mothers Ruin
    04. Days

    08. Tread Lightly
    09. What Do Pretty Girls Do?
    10. Dancing In Limbo
    11. The End Of A Perfect Day
    12. You And Me Baby

    BONUS-TRACKS:

    KIRSTY MACCOLL - electric ladyland EMI 07243-560594-2-9 VERÖFFENTLICHUNG: 28.02.2005

    Quite a change from Kite, Kirsty's second album introduces new styles, most notably the Latin kick most prominent in My affair and the grinding dance rhythms of Madison. Seemingly minor tunes such as All I ever wanted, Halloween and My way home are haunting and longer lasting. Humour is never far away, showing up in He never mentioned love but of course this is also very typical of the bittersweet emotions on display in MacColl songs. Fewer gold plated classics than Kite, but some strong tracks nevertheless.

    Reviews: "This is a defiantly untrendy record, which is one reason it deserves to do well." The Guardian

    Musicians: Pete Glenister, Elliot Randall, Mark Nevin, Sal Cuevas, Pino Palladino, Robbie Ameen, Mel Gaynor, Milton Cardona, Jose Mangual, Marc Quinones, Oscar Hernandez, Angel Fernandez, Jimmy Chambers, George Chandler, Judd Lander, Spider Stacey, Dave Valentin, Ite Jerez, Joe Shepley, Lewis Khan, Steve Sacks, Enrique Orengo, Felix Farrar, Lloyd Carter, Bob Loveday, James Fearnley, Ed Shearmur, Trevor Gray, Adrian Lillywhite, Hamish MacColl, Kirsty MacColl, Jody Linscott, Guy Pratt, Darryl Hunt, Jem Finer, Terry Woods, Philip Chevron, Colin Stuart, Ian Aitken.

    SAXON - wheels of steel / strong arm of the law 2 CD I.R.S. / EMI 0724385520921 VERÖFFENTLICHUNG: 28.02.2005

    Wheels of Steel is the album that made Saxon. With their Iron Maiden like heavy riffs, twin leadguitar and soaring vocals it is one of the albums that set the standard in the early eighties. Part of what is now referred to as the 'New Wave of British heavy Metal'. Their leather clad bikers image going well with tracks such as 'Motorcylcle Man' and the title track giving a nice rebellious feel. Tracks with more emotion and meaning like 'Suzie Hold On' and '747, Strangers in the Night', with good lyrics adding an extra dimension. Strong arm of the Law is in the same vein, with an on tour brush with the law as the title tracks inspiration, you get that rebellious feel again. Bit of humour with 'Sixth Form Girls', but this is also a great straight rock album, with the meaningful moment being 'Dallas 1pm' about the Kennedy assasination. A clever and excellent track. Overall two classic rock albums that are a must for traditional british rock fans.

    endlich auf CD: das eigentliche DEBUT-ALBUM von CYNDI LAUPER!

    BLUE ANGEL - blue angel HIP-O. SELECT VERÖFFENTLICHUNG: 18.02.2005

    CD Edition limited to 5000 non-numbered limited edition copies.

    Ah, they say that the light that burns twice as bright burns half as long. So it was to be with Blue Angel, a New York-based quintet fondly remembered by those few who saw them perform as a great rockin’ live band. Their place in rock history is solidified as being the first recorded appearance of new wave superstar Cyndi Lauper.

    The group lasted only three years, having been formed in 1977 and disbanded in 1980, and they have but the one album to their credit, but it’s a neat little pop gem that foreshadows Lauper’s future nicely.

    Right from the outset, on “Maybe He’ll Know,” Lauper is in fine voice, with a jumpin’ band whose roots in early Sixties Brill Building pop are immediately evident. Touches of the Spectorian “Wall Of Sound” occasionally are evident, but the group sounds mostly like a great big sock hop.

    It makes you feel like dancin’, yeah!


    A veteran performer on many of the singles from which Blue Angel got their initial inspiration, John Turi saw Cyndi perform on a friend's recommendation. After meeting, they realized the potential for a long-lasting, satisfying musical partnership. Turi and Lauper concentrated on songwriting while looking for members with which to form a band. Assembling a few musicians, Blue Angel was scheduled to play Trax when, two hours prior to the performance, their drummer quit. On a tip, Turi called Johnny "Bullet" Morelli to fill in. Bullet, a former Tuff Dart, was also looking for a band to call home. Considering the time he had to prepare himself with Blue Angel's material, Bullet fit in so well that the band offered him a permanent position in between encores. Realizing the sound of the band was not yet what Lauper and Turi intended, they went in search of a new guitarist and bassist.

    Cyndi, John and Bullet hunted the New York clubs, looking and listening to the available talent. They liked what they saw one night at Trax in Arthur "Rockin' A" Neilson. "Rockin' A's" old rock ‘n' roll and blues licks so impressed the three that they approached him after the show to join the fledgling band. Arthur listened to the original compositions Lauper and Turi had on tape, followed his ears and joined up.

    All that was needed was the bassist. Turi had once played the Boston club circuit years back and knew Lee Brovitz, a bassist whose style was very close to his own. The pair had lost touch when Turi returned to New York; however, Brovitz was who John had in his mind to fill the slot. Answering a "Musicians Wanted" ad in the Village Voice, Brovitz unknowingly set up an appointment with Bullet to audition at the loft that evening. In walked Lee and the remaining auditions were cancelled as Blue Angel was complete.

    Cyndi discovered singing at the earliest possible age and began writing songs at 10. Show tunes were her first introduction to music. "I used to sing for the old ladies on the streets and they'd give me quarters," reflects Cyndi. "I'd sing tunes from The King And I. first doing the Deborah Kerr part and then singing the Thai kids' lines. My mother would always make me return the quarters."

    Through a mishap of misplaced tapes, Blue Angel came to the attention of Allman Brothers manager Steve Massarskv, who immediately knew Blue Angel would have to be his next venture and became the band's manager. Massarsky signed Blue Angel to Polydor Records and retained veteran producer/engineer Roy Halee (Simon & Garfunkel, The Yardbirds, Willie Nile and the Roches, among others) to produce the group's debut.

    Of Halee, Turi says, "He didn't walk into the studio and try to change our basic sound. He listened to us and encouraged the flow of ideas from within the group, making us all feel very comfortable in the studio."

    As a totally collaborative unit, Blue Angel equals the sum of its different influences. Their individual tastes range from Phil Spector and Frankie Lymon's "doo-wop" (favored by Cyndi) to the Chicago R & B so dear to "Rockin A." Turi’s smokey, evocative sax-playing gives the songs much of their distinctive coloring. While the group was weaned on vintage rock ‘n' roll, they emerge with a sound that is nevertheless thoroughly up-to-date.

    The name Blue Angel may come from Roy Orbison's song released in the ‘50's, but the band's expressionism recalls Von Sternberg's film classic with Marlene Dietrich in the ‘30's. Taken together, Blue Angel is a band for the ‘80's-- the total sum of the abilities of its five talented members.

    9/80
