MERCURY

…is the new LP from The Range (Domino; www.dominomusic.com/uk). It’s highly commercial, chart-friendly, electronic dance music aimed at big sales and making lots of money. It hooked me. And certainly there’s lots of those.

ARP

… or Alexis Georgopoulos, has released a new LP called New Pleasures (Musica Cosmica; arpetc.bandcamp.com/album/new-pleasures ), an instrumental electronic album. Despite the Japan rip off (Eniko), this is an intriguing, multi-style, pop-coated beats outing.

BLUENOTE

New on the classic label is Charles Lloyd Trios and Chapel featuring the great Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan. Lloyd is the main squeeze here but the the trio as a whole rolls forward in an easy, sometimes mournful, oft relaxed frame of mind.

VINYL NEWS FOR 9 SEPTEMBER 2022

JOE BENNETT & THE SPARKLETONES

I saw this South Carolina rock’n’roll outfit performing a super higher-energy version of Black Slacks on The Ed Sullivan show in 1957 (maybe they were nervous?), via YouTube, with aptly named Howard ‘Sparky’ Childress looking all of 12 years old (he was 14). This Bear Family (www.bear-family.com) 10”, 14 tracker is packed with more of that energy.

JERRY REED

More from Bear Family, another 10” and Reed’s The Rockin’ U.S. Male: a 12-track 10”, another 25 on an included CD plus booklet plus post card. It includes tracks covered by others including a certain Elvis Presley and Gene Vincent. Great value.

MUNSTER

From the Spanish audiophile label comes Telegraph Avenue’s Vol.2 (munster-records.com/en/) who combined psychedelic rock with Latin rhythms. Formed in 1969 in Peru, this compilation offers English vocals and doesn’t sound Peru in any way. In fact, it sounds like a classic, obscure, energetic, 70s UK rock outfit. Well worth tracking down.

SCHIZO FUN ADDICT

Apparently there’s only 58 copies of Fate Chaser, a lovely, one-sided, three-tracked, clear-vinyl 10” in a white outer sleeve, caked with Jake Winter’s multi-colour acrylic (?) paint core dumped on the front sleeve (https://www.fruitsdemerrecords.com/fatechaser.html) plus 3D glasses and 3D label! Phew! The music? Hazy, dreaming psychedelia with twangy guitars and shuffling backing vocals of the sort that might go on for four hours if no-one said ‘stop’. 

VINYL NEWS FOR 9 SEPTEMBER 2022

CHRIS BANGS & MICK TALBOT 

Covered by a sleeve displaying fake ringware, peeling price sticker and a ‘remaindered cut slot’, Back to Business (Acid Jazz; www.acidjazz.co.uk), Bangs (underground 80s dance) and Talbot (ex-Style Council), come atcha with funky soul-jazz.

FINDLAY

London-based Findlay’s The Last of the 20th Century Girls (https://findlaymusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-last-of-the-20th-century-girls) is competent but this psyche/indie outing is ultimately vanilla.

MOSKUS
