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’.

Black State Highway
WE HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF SIGNED STOCK AVAILABLE, ORDER NOW TO GET YOUR COPY!!

•    Black State Highway are a five-piece, multi-national, female-fronted hard rock band on a mission! Equal parts filthy blues riffs, monster rhythm and raw, but melodic hooks, these young guns have set a determined foot on the road to rock glory.

•    Formed at Brighton’s Institute of Modern Music, the band includes Latvian singer Liva Steinberga (22), aided and abetted by guitarist Olie Trethewey (23), bassist Gordon Duncan (23), Jon Crampton (24) and drummer Harry Bland (22). The band have been honing their skills around London's gig circuit, tearing up venues like O2 Academy Islington, Big Red and the Intrepid Fox.

•    Within the grooves of this self-titled debut you’ll hear shreds of their rock heroes; everything from AC/DC to Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin… but it’s their bone crunching riffs and bottle shattering vocals that set them apart from the rest of the pack. With a respectful nod at the musical pedigree that influenced them, the band stamp their own authority on the scene by stepping outside the boundaries of mere classic rock traditions with their own original brand of heavy riff-based rock, evident on tracks like ‘Conclusion’, ‘Tekkers’ and the single ‘Ain’t Got Know’.

•    They may have picked up a few parking tickets along the way, but Black State Highway have set a first step on the road to glory. Hear a Three Track Album Sampler www.blackstatehighway.co.uk or contact www.facebook.com/blackstatehighway

Original Albums Collection: 5CD Clamshell Box Set Edition
Since the dawn of time, psychobilly originators and figureheads The Meteors have set the standard for the angry blend of rockabilly, punk and dirty sci-fi horror blues that continues to find new fans around the world. Beloved of bikers, punks, rockabillies, goths, rockers, cowgirls and indie boys alike for over thirty years, the gaggle of pissed off boys who emerged from a succession of London rockabilly bands as the grim 70s lurched into the 80s has slowly mutated into a worldwide phenomenon, legends in their own lifetime and Godfathers of a scene that refused to die.

This set – comprising five studio albums originally released between 1984 and 1988 – captures the band in their heyday, pummelling their way through seventy five album tracks, single mixes and b-sides. Packaged in individual LP sleeve replica wallets and a hard clamshell box, these records are ripe for rediscovery and re-examination, as is the psychobilly movement as a whole.

➢    Plus bonus tracks – single mixes and b-sides
➢    LP sleeve replica wallets
➢    Booklet contains sleevenotes, relevant single sleeve packshots etc

I Crudeli (The Cruel Ones): Vinyl LP Edition
A coffin without a corpse... Crammed with millions in cash!

Supremely atmospheric Ennio Morricone score to a lesser known, but nonetheless stylish and satisfying Sergio Corbucci production;  a cross between a Spaghetti Western and a wild west road movie, indeed, a fine example of a film that combines both Italian and American western film traditions.

Joseph Cotten - the Mercury Theatre veteran renowned for his performance alongside Orson Welles in Citizen Kane - leads the murderous "Hellbenders", a dissolute family regiment who ambush and massacre a convoy of union soldiers transporting a million dollars, seizing the money that Jonas dreams of using to help re-ignite the confederate cause.

After the savage opening, the film settles into an engaging sequence of scenes exploring tensions within the group and depicting the numerous challenges the Hellbenders encounter as they progress slowly through hostile territory back toward New Mexico and home;  Federal soldiers, Mexican bandits, a tribe of vengeful indians and a psychotic beggar, ("respect the dead, I don't even respect the living").

To evade detection, The Hellbenders conceal the stolen money within the coffin of a fallen Southern officer. Along the way hire a beautiful gambler (Brazilian Actress, singer, sex symbol Norma Bengell) to pose as Mrs. Ambrose Allen, the supposed wife of the supposed dead man.

Il Maestro's soundtrack is an impressive conglomeration of mournful trumpets, nervous guitars and percussive, sometimes atonal atmosphere pieces which establish a suitably tense mood. Alessandro Alessandroni's I Cantori Moderni decorate the score with their characteristically eclectic vocal flourishes.

Alongside his friend, Sergio Leone, Corbucci pioneered the Spaghetti Western genre with thirteen features; marvellous cinema like The Big Silence and the notoriously bloody Django, which preceded Crudeli by just months.

ABOUT ENNIO MORRICONE:
Ennio Morricone is surely one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century. During a long and prolific career he has created music for more than five hundred films and television series. In working with Italian spaghetti western directors Sergio Leone, Duccio Tessari and Sergio Corbucci, he did nothing less than re-write the language of film music. It is impossible to imagine the genre without his contribution. He is to Sergio Leone, what Nino Rota is to Federico Fellini or Bernard Herrmann to Alfred Hitchcock.

Il Maestro has written for every conceivable genre, collaborating, along the way, with Scorsese, Tarantino, Almodovar, Bertolucci, Pasolini, horror master Dario Argento, and many others.

Fumo Di Londra: Vinyl LP Edition
Music from the Original Motion Picture Score: Composed, arranged and conducted by Piero Piccioni. Vocals: Lydia MacDonald, Alberto Sordi, I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni

On July 30, 1966, England beat West Germany 4-2 in the World Cup Final and during the first week of August the Beatles release "Eleanor Rigby". We were witness to a musical and cultural earthquake of Biblical proportions.

With "its ancient elegance and new opulence all tangled up in a dazzling blur of op and pop", London was the centre of the world, and it is into this dizzying technicolor dream house that Mr. Dante Fontana lands. An expert in Italian Antiquities, steeped in the mythology of Lords and Ladies, the Queen, the changing guards and City Gents: all those oh so English traditions!

However Mr. Dante Fontana soon discovers he is too late to realise his fantasy of becoming an English Gentleman. After buying a Bowler and Smoke of London suit, he encounters a city already invaded by the new Beat Generation, and thus the Italian dreamer embarks on a journey into dimensions where strangeness and extremes travel at maximum velocity.  So rises "Fumo Di Londra," the historic first film directed by Alberto Sordi in 1966, in which each frame emanates magic.

Much of the film's considerable allure derives from the enchanting soundtrack of Piero Piccioni. This masterful composer collaborated many times with Sordi, writing themes that were to became Albertone's career trademarks; "Marcia di Esculapio" from the movie "Il Medico della Mutua" and "Rugido Do Leao" from "Finché cé guerra, ce speranza"  (which was used later for a series called "TV Storia di un Italiano").  

The eclectic, instrumental side of "Fumo di Londra" boasts such exemplary pieces as "Babylon I'm Coming" and "Drag Beat" that paint the backdrop to the discotheque party scene.  Like Michelangelo Antonioni's "Blow Up" and Desmond Davis' "Smashing Time", "Fumo di Londra" - with its Edwardiana and Royal Parks and River Thames settings - will forever celebrate the mythology of Swinging London.

NB: This title is released 9th March 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
