Artist: DEVIANTS, THE
Title: Ptooff!
Format: LP
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"Classic LP by Ladbroke Grove counterculture proto-Punks the Deviants. Founded by legendary counter-culture figure Mick Farren and Russell Hunter and inspired by The Fugs, the Deviants were first of the anarchic groups to emerge from the Ladbroke Grove area of London. Two years before Hawkwind burst on to the underground scene, the Deviants were preaching revolution and creating their own form of musical anarchy. Ptooff! was the bands classic debut album, originally released in 1967 and only available by mail order from the pages of International Times. Resplendent in a lavish fold out sleeve and with liner note by John Peel, the record caused a sensation, one of the first truly independent British rock albums to be released. This edition restores the original foldout poster artwork and has been re-mastered from the original master tapes." -Cherry Red.

Artist: FIVE OR SIX
Title: Acting On Impulse
Format: CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"A timely retrospective of one of the less heralded groups of the classic Cherry Red era of the early eighties but one in whom interest is growing. Musically akin to such contemporaries as Wire and This Heat, Five or Six had the distinction of providing the opening track (Portrait) to Cherry Red¹s historic Pillows and Prayers compilation and this little masterpiece is duly featured on this Best Of collection. Also featured are such stellar singles as Another Reason (produced by the late and very legendary Kevin Coyne) and Polar Exposure and also the outstanding cuts from their impossibly rare and greatly sought after Spanish import album, Play Me That Song That Goes Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. After the group disbanded, its members went on to a multifarious range of artistic occupations, such as members of Spring Heel Jack, the Shock Headed Peters, at Factory Records and 4AD Records and in the drama department of the BBC." - Cherry Red

Artist: STACK WADDY
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Cherry Red is delighted to announce the release of another classic album from John Peels Dandelion Records catalogue, 1971s self-titled Stack Waddy, a raucous four-piece from Manchester. Peel had first seen the band at the Buxton Blues Festival in September 1969. Their performance made a big impression, and a first single, Kentucky/Roadrunner, was released just under a year later in August 1970, they soon became Peels favorite band on the label. Raw, rockin power bottled in 1971 and unleashed again here! On stage they were loud, aggressive, fairly pissed and remarkably unsubtle, as befitted musicians who were often forced to supplement their meager gig money by working days on construction sites. Their frustrations and energies were poured into music that it was impossible to ignore. In fact, you were better off not to try to ignore it because one of the many Stack Waddy atrocity stories has John Knail (lead singer) jumping off-stage to beat to the floor a man who was paying more attention to his lady than to the band. As the late John Peel OBE said Stackwaddy were absolutely incorrigible, everything a rock n roll band should be." - Cherry Red

Artist: SUN DIAL
Title: Other Way Out
Format: LP
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $32.00
"When GARY ROMANs neo-psychedelic SUN DIALl debuted in 1990 with Other Way Out, it was almost unanimously lauded by fans and press. Taking the late sixties psychedelic approach of bands like Led Zeppelin, Hendrix and the Beatles, the LP sounded like one of the great lost albums from that era. The instrumentation was also a throwback to the period with crisp electric guitar backed by Turkish talking drums, bamboo flute, and Tibetan bells. Now, 20 years after the albums release, it is still cited as a neo-psych classic." -Cherry Red

Artist: TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS
Title: Shut Up and Bleed
Format: CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The seminal no-wave band Teenage and Jesus and The Jerks were lead by primal screamer and guitarist Lydia Lunch, an individual who has fought her artistic way through the decades, always true to her own vision and always brutally honest. In early 1978, artist and producer Brian Eno attended a series of shows put on to benefit the Artists Space in Soho and influenced Island Records to finance an anthology LP featuring the four strongest bands -- Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, The Contortions, Mars and DNA. The resulting recording, entitled No New York and produced by Eno, remains as one of the most impressive and extraordinarily bold debuts of the time. Here we compiled all Teenage Jesus and The Jerks recordings, alongside some NEVER previously released live material. Simultaneous to Teenage Jesus, Lunch formed Beirut Slump, released one single and recorded an albums worth of material, which is also included on this remarkable release." - Cherry Red

Artist: TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS
Title: Shut Up And Bleed
Format: LP
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"Formed by underground music gurus Lydia Lunch and James Chance in 1976, Teenage Jesus flourished in an underground scene that eschewed the commercialization, triteness and idiocy of punk, dominated (particularly in the USA) by bands that, despite being decidedly marginalized, in some ways just wanted to have fun and get wasted on a Saturday night. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were not about having fun. It was about nihilism and confrontation, about ripping mainstream society to shreds and dancing on its grave. The music, if you will, was more of a means to an end, almost a metaphor for how at odds the members felt with mainstream society, and it was this forceful message preached by this new prophet (the Teenage Jesus) that has spoken to the past three decades of disillusioned youth. These twenty-one tracks taken from their brief time together (1977-1979) represent the bulk of their recorded material, including the bands earliest material (recorded in Soho in NYC 1977, when James Chance was still in the band), their first single (Orphans/Less Of Me, 1978), their second single (Baby Doll/Freud In Flop/Race Mixing), songs from the Pink EP, produced by Robert Quine of the Voidoids, songs that appeared on the legendary 1978 No New York compilation, etc." - Cherry Red.

Artist: TIMES, THE
Title: Pop Goes Art!
Format: LP
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"Side project of Television Personalities guitar player Ed Ball and singer Dan Treacy, only here Ball does vocals and Treacy plays guitar. The Times was Balls own brilliant mod homage to the whole Carnaby Street scene. Pop Goes Art! was also the first release on Treacy and Balls Whaam! label, and featured the hilarious Ray Davies-influenced I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape (Patrick McGoohan, of course, being the doomed star of the T.V. series The Prisoner), Miss London and other forgotten classics." - Cherry Red

Title: Miniatures One + Two
Format: Double CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Featuring artists as diverse as The Residents, Robert Fripp, XTCs Andy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and The Pretenders Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, Morgan Fishers 1980 release Miniatures truly was a first. Overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and Miniatures was born out of Morgans precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Fast forward 15 years, several projects and the development of new realms of communication and data transfer afforded by the internet, and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel. Little did he know that this project would take six years to complete and involve an international cast of players (taking in 18 countries across five continents), but it proved truly worth both the effort and the wait. The astounding Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 musicians and artists of all genres -- the bizarre, the eccentric, the contemplative, the rebel-rousers, the pioneers and the philosophers and no stone was left unturned in its creation. As with the original album, one minute creations were composed, then sequenced and edited by Morgan, again meeting with rave reviews and an acknowledgement that Fisher had produced something both original and vital to those with any interest in music existing outside the mainstream. Comprising both legendary tiny masterpiece collections, this new set brings together all one hundred and thirteen tracks (yes, 113!) in one two-disc collection for the first time, freshly boosted and tweaked for 2008. New artwork and sleeve-notes have also been provided by Morgan himself." - Cherry Red. Artists include: The Residents, Robert Wyatt, Fred Frith, Lol Coxhill, Steve Miller, Robert Fripp, Ron Geesin, Ralph Steadman, Trevor Wishart, Ivor Cutle, Metabolist, Gavin Bryars, 1/2 Japanese, David Cunningham (The Flying Lizards), Etron Fou Leloublan, Terry Riley, Meredith Monk, David Cunningham, & Moondog (Louis Hardin).

Artist: V/A
Title: Perspectives and Distortion
Format: CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
“Although “Pillows and Prayers” is the best-known sampler of the label, its precursor “Perspectives and Distortions” (1981) includes many non-Cherry Red artists, which makes it very interesting. In fact, when I bought this compilation in 1981, it was a stunning overview of British experimental rock/pop/alterntive music, played by loads of people Id never heard of… and a few (like Robert Fripp) that I knew. Time tells us that experimental music can often date really quickly, but most of the music on this comp doesnt. It holds together beautifully, which is surprising because putting arch punks like the Virgin Prunes and Mark Perry in with Kevin Coyne and Robert Fripp, for instance, seems quite out there. Still a lot of names here that I don’t know/remember (A.Tent, the Lemon Kittens), but Matt Johnson (soon to be The The) and Eyeless in Gaza became crucial listening. Listen to it today, and you too might be inspired to check out some new names.” Totally uncommercial music which bordered on the Avant Garde; Outsider Music before anyone thought up the name." - Lion. Features CLAIRE THOMAS and SUSAN VEZEY (STORM BUGS), MATT JOHNSON, VIRGIN PRUNES, LOL COXHILL, LEMON KITTENS, EYELESS IN GAZA, KEVIN COYNE, MARK PERRY, BEN WATT, TWO DAUGHTERS, KEVIN HARRISON, THOMAS LEER, FIVE OR SIX, MORGAN FISCHER, ROBERT FRIPP, A TENT and DAVID JACKMAN (ORGANUM).
