Reissue of two 1980 cult releases by Basement 5 imminent – both produced by Martin Hannett (Joy Division)

Here’s something for those Factory Records fans who want to collect everything related to the label and its personnel. “1965-1980” and the mini-album “In Dub”, 2 classic releases by the punk-dub rhythm act Basement 5, finally see a reissue. The “1965-1980” album takes its title from the year frontman Dennis Morris (legendary photographer of Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols) arrived from Jamaica to its recording in 1980. Having secured the services of Factory Records renowned in-house producer, Martin Hannett (Joy Division) things looked good. However, the original drummer walked out on the first day of recording and was immediately replaced by the Blockheads Charlie Charles who went to finish the sessions. In the spirit of the day things didn’t last, underlying tension saw the band implode whilst touring through Europe. The final incarnation of the band lasted a mere eighteen months. The “1965-1980” sessions also yielded dub versions of several of the main tracks and were later on released as “In Dub”. The re-issue comes on vinyl and can be ordered right here. Basement 5 formed in London in 1978. Their first vocalist was Winston Fergus, then Don Letts. One of their early performances was a support for Public […]

Listen to the first excerpts of new Liars album ‘TFCF’ – IDM fanfood!

Australian electronica/punk act Liars aka the project of Angus Andrew, is back with the first excerpts of the project’s upcoming 8th album “TFCF” (out later in August). The album will be out on CD, vinyl and MP3 and can be purchased right now. Following an amicable parting of ways with Aaron Hemphill, Angus Andrew decamped to his native Australia to create an album that has a lot of electronics on it. Not surprising as Liars have, as a matter of course, sounded radically different with each album, pursuing new concepts. The album will again be released via Mute Records. Listen to the excerpts below:

Bel Canto live review and Anneli Drecker interview

(By our Norwegian correspondent Jan Ronald Stange) After walking through the pouring rain towards Tøyenparken and the opening day of the 2017 edition of the Øyafestivalen in Oslo, Norway, my friends and I quickly took shelter in the big tent stage called Sirkus, waiting for our first act of the evening, Bel Canto from Tromsø. As were 5000 others too, all unusually early in place for a festival concert, a point also made by singer Anneli Drecker: “Lucky for us it’s raining this much – we brought the weather from Northern Norway!”. It was indeed THE rainiest day in Oslo so far this year! The set was about 50 minutes long with a good mix of songs from all their albums, and many songs in new or updated arrangements too, even totally acoustic like ‘Spiderdust’ (which some may have heard live before). Most surprising was probably ‘Rush’ with Anneli’s throat singing as a new element! Ending the set with ‘Unicorn’ was the perfect closer, sending the audience away to the rest of the evening on a musical high. Songs played at Øyafestivalen: White-Out Conditions / Dewy Fields / Birds of Passage / Shimmering, Warm & Bright / Paradise / Rush / […]
