    Do Yourself In

    Shakespears Sister 'Songs From The Red Room' Vinyl 2xLP - Gold

    £25.49

    Limited Edition 1000 Pressing. 2xLP Gold Vinyl.

    ‘Songs From the Red Room’ marks the debut Record Store day offering from Shakespears Sister aka Siobhan Fahey.

    This release celebrates the albums tenth anniversary with the albums long overdue vinyl outing. The critically acclaimed – ‘Songs From the Red Room’, originally released in 2009 has become a fan favourite amongst Siobhan’s legions of fans.

    The original 11 track album, includes the singles ‘Bitter Pill’, ‘Pulsatron’, ‘Bad Blood’ and ‘It’s A Trip’, alongside ‘Was It Worth It?’ with long-term collaborator Terry Hall (Fun Boy Three / The Specials), a cover of the Linda Lamb classic ‘Hot Room’, bonus track ‘Someone Else’s Girl’ and remixes from the Droyds, Whitey, Jagz Kooner and Death In Vegas.

    As one of the most accomplished female songwriters the UK has ever produced, Fahey has enjoyed enormous creative and commercial success. Her career in the music industry stretches back almost four decades with legendary groups Shakespears Sister and Bananarama, as well as writing for other artists.

    Fahey co-founded Bananarama with Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward in 1981. They enjoyed two top five hits in partnership with male trio Fun Boy Three in 1982, before having their first solo hit with 'Shy Boy' later that year.

    Despite international success and a string of international hit singles, including the US Number One ‘Venus’ and four hugely successful studio albums ‘Deep Sea Skiving’, ‘Bananarama’, ‘True Confessions’ and ‘WOW!’ Fahey left the group in 1988 and founded Shakespears Sister. Initially as a solo project and later in partnership with Marcella Detroit.

    Shakespears Sister’s debut album ‘Sacred Heart’ was released in 1989, and included the hit single ‘You’re History'. Their 1992 hit ‘Stay' topped the UK charts for eight weeks, the longest running Number One by an all-female group in British chart history. Their 'Hormonally Yours' album released that year went to Number Three in the UK charts and was certified Double Platinum, subsequently receiving the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contemporary Song Collection in 1993.

    After a musical hiatus Fahey later returned as Shakespears Sister, again as a solo vehicle, for the the release of her critically acclaimed albums ‘#3’ and ‘Songs From the Red Room’ in 2009 on her own SF Records, amongst others.

    In 2017 Fahey reunited with bandmates Dallin and Woodward for the Bananarama Original Line-Up Tour, their first as trio, for sold-out dates across the UK, North America and Europe into 2018. Now fans old and new can finally experience Shakespears Sisters fourth studio album in all its vinyl glory.

    Bentley Rhythm Ace 'Bentley Rhythm Ace (21st Anniversary Edition)' Vinyl 2xLP Clear

    £21.99

    Limited Edition: 500 x 2 LP Clear Vinyl, Gatefold Pressing.

    Bentley Rhythm Ace formed in Birmingham in 1996 when ex Pop Will Eat Itself bassist Richard March and DJ Michael Stokes discovered a shared love of obscure, oddball and eccentric tunes.

    Utilising lo-fi cut and paste sampling techniques combined with analogue synths and some wild turntable action their debut EP was picked up by Fatboy Slim’s Brighton based Skint Records and released to widespread acclaim.

    The BRA live show added Fuzz Townshend on drums and James Atkin (ex EMF vocalist) on keyboards and the latter years of the 90s saw BRA firmly established as festival favourites with appearances at Glastonbury, Reading, V, T in the Park, Montreux Jazz and Fuji Rock amongst many others.

    Their irreverent approach mixed with big beats, thundering bass, wild synths and esoteric samples proved to be a hit with fans and critics alike. 1998 saw Bentley Rhythm Ace crowned “Best Dance Act” in that year’s NME awards.

    Their eponymous debut album was given a worldwide release after the Bentleys signed to Parlophone records and the band toured extensively in the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and USA. As well as releasing a highly regarded DJ mix album on Ministry of Sound, and releasing a second album for Parlophone (featuring vocals from Black Grape/Ruthless Rap Assassins frontman Kermit), BRA also produced well received remixes for the Beastie Boys and Supergrass as well as soundtracking several TV shows and adverts.

    This "21st Birthday - Bonus Tracks Edition" of the album has been compiled by Richard March of the band and includes the original 11 track album along with 2 bonus tracks remastered and repressed to vinyl for the first time in almost two decades!

    Presented in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, complete with original artwork and comprehensive sleeve notes for all thirteen tracks written for this release by Richard March.

    Get FREE DOWNLOADS of the songs 'The Fall In Love Club' and 'Pankhurst' when buying the vinyl or ordering the CD.

    180g black vinyl 500 copies only, no download card.

    Steven Clark (a.k.a Sci-Fi Steven from disco/punk legends bis) returns with his one-man-band project Batteries what seems like seconds after last year's self-titled snappy New-Wave debut. The debut's dystopian potential future themes remain, but this time both the musical and lyrical safety nets have been removed.

    With the "Devo plays Queens Of The Stone Age or vice versa" mantra still a loose guide, The Finishing Line opens with the vague reassurance of lost Punk 45 "The Fall-In-Love Club" before the safety is removed for the unhinged journey ahead.

    Remnants of Bill Nelson's Red Noise, Cardiacs and early Blur b-sides abound in "Mutual Enemies" and "Hidden Tracks" while there's edgy American metallic synth punk in "Pigs", "Pankhurst" and "Children Be Normal" which recalls Jesus Lizard and Brainiac.

    It's a restless itchy record, fleeting pop melodies are crushed by industrial strength guitars, but one that is a cohesive reward and illustrates Steven's unique musical vision.

    Side A:
    1. The Fall-In-Love Club

    Do Yourself In

    Bis / Big Zero 'Boredom Could Be …. / Tear It Up And …..'

    £5.99

    Split 7" - Limited Edition 500 Pressing - Coloured Vinyl, no download.

    A split between the old and new kids on the new-wave pop block.

    "Boredom Could Be Good For You" is brand-new, machines and guitar pop from Glasgow's indie legends bis. A favourite from recent reformation gigs, it encapsulates their famed musical exuberance, wiry riffs, wonky beats and synths, with a wry and reflective sideswipe at the youth of today. It's the bis that the old-school fans know and love, but also showcases their continued ability to craft long-lost indie-disco classics alongside their more Riot Grrrl or electronic inspirations. With gigs lined up and a new album forthcoming, "Boredom Could Be Good For You" is a hook laden reminder that Manda Rin, Sci-Fi Steven and John Disco could be good for you too.

    On the flip, young upstarts from Reading, Big Zero interrupt the show with "Tear It Up and Start Again", their guitar and synth driven weirdo-pop vinyl debut. Like Devo getting drunk with Weezer, Adam, Johnnie and Jordan take influence from the best of British and American New-Wave and give it a much needed shot of adrenaline.

    Their B-Movie inspired DIY videos have been gaining a cult following, live shows ecstatically received and with bis support dates on the horizon, fans can witness their new favourite band and their old favourite band together. A full EP will follow on Do Yourself In later in the year.

    Boxset, 2 Studio Alum LP’s both 180g coloured vinyl + 2 x Digital Download Rarities Albums - Limited Edition 500 Pressing.

    Punk legends Babes In Toyalnd returned to the worlds stage in 2015 ending a 14 year hiatus with founding members Kat Bjelland and Lori Barbero reminding riot grrrl’s and boys of all ages how to rock, with an extensive tour and high profile festival dates across the USA, Canada and Europe. This collection compiles Bjelland’s two solo albums recorded under the moniker Katastrophy Wife released during that hiatus.

    Katastrophy Wife’s debut ‘Amusia’ was released to highly favourable reviews following a UK live debut at Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2001. Including the UK Indie #14 single ‘Gone Away’, together with fan favourites like ‘Git Go’ and ‘Window’ the album soon became a highly sought after addition to Bjelland’s hardcore Babes in Toyland fan base. This collection marks the albums 15th Anniversary and it’s first ever vinyl release.

    The sophomore album ‘All Kneel’ spawned three singles ‘Liberty Belle’, Money Shot and Blue Valient. Enjoying great critical acclaim, including features and reviews from Kerrang!, The Guardian and Mojo. Further touring of Europe and the US followed culminating in a headlining slot at Glastonbury Festival in 2004. A final single release ‘Heart-On’ via the Australian label RiSH followed in 2007 before Bjelland embarked on her own musical hiatus until the much publicised return of Babes in Toyland.

    Whilst fans and critics patiently await the release of new material from the Minneapolis rockers this release finally brings together the two hard to find albums ‘Amusia’ and ‘All Kneel’ repackaged and pressed on 180g coloured vinyl, combined with the specially compiled and previously unreleased digital album ‘Amnesia’ and ‘For Your Patients’ a collection of rare recordings from the ‘Amusia’ and ‘All Kneel’ era’s respectively.

    2 x 180g, Coloured, Vinyl & Download Card - Limited Edition 500 Pressing.

    For the first time ever anywhere! It’s the thoroughly collected works of Blood Sausage, the early 1990’s punk and poetry phenomena that baffled audiences, upset soundmen and really really angered the music press.

    Blood Sausage was a loose fitting musical collective based around Dale Shaw (Vocals and words), AJW Bourton (The McTells, The Beatpack, Cee Bee Beaumont), Owen Thomas (Cee Bee Beaumont, Graham Coxon), Jo Johnson (Huggy Bear, Bleep43), Niki Elliott (Huggy Bear) plus special guests such as Sexton Ming and Kathleen Hanna.

    Featuring their acclaimed Wiiija EP ‘Touching You in Ways That Don’t Feel Comfortable’ (NME’s Single of the Week) every track from their debut album, K single, Clawfist split single with Cornershop plus live tracks, unreleased stuff and demos.

    Described at the time as “…a plane crash involving Thinking Fellas Local Union 238 and The Kingston Trio with The Standells as the black box flight recorder, Archie Shepp as the rescue crew and Isaac Hayes as the priest administering the last rites…” we still feel this is pretty accurate.

    This double album, coloured vinyl set also features 29 tracks of remastered mayhem plus extensive liner notes from Dale Shaw. Nothing ever sounded like Blood Sausage. Some people think this is a good thing.

    Combining melodic keys and vocal lines, with the pure unadulterated noise of dizzying drum beats and ear bleeding guitars, they are a schizophrenic experience.

    Coming across like post punk placed through an alt rock blender on minute, slackers on speed the next, there is a definite musical magpieism at work.

    Do Yourself In

    Batteries 'Human Requirements' Vinyl 7" + Download

    £4.99

    #Order now and get an instant download of the EP.#


    Very limited 7” single (300 only worldwide)

    “Human Requirements” is the next single to be taken from Batteries, the debut solo album from Sci-Fi Steven from bis’ new band Batteries, which is out now via Do Yourself In. The single will come out on 11 September and will be available as a double AA side single with the song “Softhead”, a new recording exclusive to this this 7”. 

    As Sci-Fi Steven Explains, the song "Human Requirements" is a “thinly veiled political rant about the desperate inability of the electorate to fundamentally put collective welfare ahead of short-term selfishness. The "say-one-thing, vote-another" mentality that pervades and my frustration at conservative negativity. Somehow, it seems to have turned into a pop song with a skinny-tie sprightliness."

    More info about Batteries:

    Batteries is the self-titled debut solo album by Steven Clark (professionally known as Sci-Fi Steven) from Glasgow's Punk/Disco legends bis. An exercise in short, sharp new-wave snappiness, Steven has ramped up the guitars and latent aggression to create a new sound which has already been compared to Devo playing Queens of the Stone Age or vice-versa. Nagging melodies abound with some darker twists and a cynical sense of positivity informs the lyrics. There are plenty of pop hooks for the bis faithful, but Batteries is an angrier beast. 

    "Irresistible post-punk pop." Vive Le Rock 9/10

    "The self-titled debut album from Batteries fizzes with post-punk energy across its 12 tracks, poking you in the ribs with arpeggio riffs that are all angles and elbows." The Herald

     

    "The lead single, which like the project and the album is also called ‘Batteries’, is the perfect lead in to the project. It’s a sharp-edged three minutes, pushing itself forward with stop-start rhythms, and bloody hell it’s catchy." CMU

      Batteries is the self-titled debut solo album by Steven Clark (professionally known as Sci-Fi Steven) from Glasgow's Punk/Disco legends bis.

      An exercise in short, sharp new-wave snappiness, Steven has ramped up the guitars and latent aggression to create a new sound which has already been compared to Devo playing Queens of The Stone Age or vice-versa.

      Nagging melodies abound with some darker twists and a cynical sense of positivity informs the lyrics.

      There's plenty of pop hooks for the bis faithful, but Batteries is an angrier beast. Contains anthemic lead track "Batteries" and the viciously wonky pop of "Human Requirements”.

      2001's "Return To Central" sees bis rip up their own rule book and start stretching their wings. From the shouty pop-punk-disco of 1997's "The New Transistor Heroes" to the shiny, slick pop of 1999's "Social Dancing", not even the most fanatical bis fan could have envisaged the leap to "Return To Central".

      Spending most of 2000 in a basement with banks of synthesizers, samplers and Brian Eno records, Manda Rin (now with whispered vocals), Sci-Fi Steven and John Disco created the cinematic "What You're Afraid Of", the sweeping My Bloody Valentine indebted "The End Starts Today", the Moog-heavy disco of "Protection" and the sad euphoria of great-lost-hit "Silver Spoon".

      The massive sonic departure divided the remaining fanbase and was the band's last album until 2014's "data Panik etcetera", but many consider "Return To Central" the band's masterpiece.

      Now in expanded form with un-released tracks of the era, remixes and the "Fact 2002" EP, including the famous cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart”.

      Tracklisting:

      £11.99

      1999's "Social Dancing" saw Manda Rin, Sci-Fi Steven and John Disco, having been ostrasized by the UK music press, return with a bigger, shinier and cohesive sound.

      Produced by Gang Of Four's Andy Gill and mixed by Pet Shop Boys engineer Bob Kraushaar, the blend of 1979 New-Wave riffs and 80's Electro-Pop synths shine on hit single "Eurodisco", the sped-up Gary Numan of "I'm A Slut" and album opener "Making People Normal".

      An expanded sonic palette saw a liberal use of samples, a diversion into trip-hop ("Detour") and even a real string section on "Theme From Tokyo". While "Social Dancing" didn't have the impact of debut album "The New Transitor Heroes", it's most fans favourite - a solid body of songs which has a confident band at the top of their game. Now here in deluxe form, including 2000's self-produced (and band favourite) "Music For A Stranger World" mini-album.

      £11.99

      "The New Transistor Heroes" is the youthful Manda Rin, Sci-Fi Steven and John Disco's energetic 1997 debut album, now fully expanded with b-sides and rarities of the era.

      It's an explosion of colourful influences ranging from quirky New-Wave to 80's Synth-Pop and Riot Grrrl with hints of Disco and Two-Tone, the sound of an excitable band without pretences.

      The album went massive in Japan, "Starbright Boy" and "Sweet Shop Avengerz" hit the UK charts while the digital Motown of "Tell It To The Kids" introduced bis to the kids of the US.

      The anti-body fascism disco anthem, "Monstarr", remains a fan favourite to this day while the synth-heavy "Skinny-Tie Sensurround" pointed to the next, 80's indebted, album "Social Dancing". It's a bold and innocent attempt at creating the definitive bis document, and it's catchy as sin to boot.
