Dark Matter/Dark Energy - Membranes

Dark Matter/Dark Energy
ALSO AVAILABLE:


Fronted by charismatic singer John Robb, the Membranes formed in the wake of Punk in Blackpool in 1977.

Membranes made a huge impact on the post-punk scene of the 1980s, with John Robb also establishing himself as a music journalist of note. John Peel was a huge supporter and bands as disparate as Mercury Rev, My Bloody Valentine and Big Black have cited them as an influence.

After Membranes folded, John returned to the stage with Sensurround and most notably Goldblade, before rekindling Membranes a few years ago.

Dark Matter/Dark Energy is the first Membranes album since 1989. It’s awash with their off-kilter mix of angular post-punk adventure, Krautrock-ish soundscapes and edginess.

The album is inspired by a conversation with Joe Incandela, the head of the CERN project about the Higgs Boson particle (Joe is on one of the tracks). It’s all about the life and death of the universe; during recording, John Robb's father died and the album is also about him.

The album is preceded by a Record Store Day 7” of the musical juggernaut that is ‘Do The Supernova’.

Organized Insanity
Blurred Vision is a 3 piece progressive/psychedelic/pop rock outfit comprised of guitarist & vocalist Sepp Osley, bassist Sohl Osley and drummer Ben Riley. The band's career was launched in 2010, when the backing and endorsement of Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters brought them international acclaim.

‘Organized Insanity’, the debut album from the band, reveals personal stories of the modern day culture of relationships and love, while also touching on controversial themes of war, politics, religion, and the state of the music scene today.

Produced by Terry Brown, the band's unique style varies from the progressive and psychedelic rock of the 70’s, the mystical and exotic sounds and melodies of the Mid East, to an amalgamation of contemporary and unique new Rock ‘N’ Roll songs with memorable hooks and great pop sensibilities.

Blurred Vision's globally themed lyrics and stadium sound prowess make them a timely voice of their generation for the resurgence of rock ‘n’ roll in the ever changing music world.

N.B. This title is released 6th April and will not be dispatched before this date.

Oh Happy England
"A mix of old testament preacher and Captain Beefheart. There's a touch of Tom Waits and Nick Cave in there too..." (jazzman.com) 

· "Bird Radio is ‘future medieval’, as if J.G. Ballard had written The Wicker Man”. Steve Chandra Savale, Asian Dub Foundation 

· "Bird Radio is a flute-toting, bass drum-beating sensation... A must-see live act.” Rick Pearson, Evening Standard 

· "Oh, Happy England” is a collection of fourteen song settings of poems by British writer Walter de la Mare. Bird Radio developed this album with the active support of Aldeburgh Music where he composed and recorded the songs on residency with an ensemble of voice, flute, piano, cello, guitar, bass and percussion. Bird Radio states, "when you enter into a poem by Walter de la Mare, you are never certain of the boundaries between reality and dream. His poetry covers a broad spectrum of textures and emotions from moments of realisation and self-recognition as in "The Englishman" to dark, isolated and nightmarish scenes such as in "Drugged” and reveries such as in "Time Passes". 

· With the blessing of Walter de la Mare’s grandson Giles, folklorist/musician/curator Sam Lee and a mentoring programme with the new London initiative Meet The Artist. 

· Bird Radio has performed his dark-folk music on independent and BBC radio as well as performances across the UK, Russia, Europe and the United States. 

· Oh, Happy England is released in a matt finish limited edition digi-pack with a 20page booklet designed by Italian artist Chiara Ambrosio.

The Lover Speaks EXPANDED EDITION
· Now, for the first time ever, the gorgeous, debut album by THE LOVER SPEAKS has been digitally remastered and expanded. 

· Released in 1986, the British duo of David Freeman and Joseph Hughes recorded their self-titled, debut album in Los Angeles with legendary producer Jimmy Iovine (Simple Minds, Stevie Nicks, Pretenders, Eurythmics, Alison Moyet, U2, Tom Petty). 

· The album has been long out-of-print. The original CD is nearly impossible to find and sells for staggering amounts of money when it turns up online. 

· This expanded edition features 18 tracks including the original 10-track album alongside six bonus tracks that have never appeared on CD before. 

· Three singles were released from the album including ‘No More ‘I Love You’s’’ (UK #58), ‘Every Lover’s Sign’ (US #6 Dance), and ‘Tremble Dancing’. · Also included is their powerful recording of the Dusty Springfield classic, ‘I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten’, which was released as a stand alone single in early 1987. The track was produced by Dave Stewart. 

· In 1995, Annie Lennox famously covered ‘No More ‘I Love You’s’’ and was rewarded with her biggest, international solo single which peaked at #2 in the UK and #23 in the US. 

· The 16-page booklet contains comprehensive liner notes, photos, an illustrated discography, lyrics, complete credits, and insightful track annotations from band members David Freeman (vocals) and Joseph Hughes (guitars, keyboards).
