  • Cinema Red And Blue 'Come Back To The City, Babyface' - Cargo Records UK

    Fortuna POP!

    Cinema Red And Blue 'Come Back To The City, Babyface'

    £5.99

    Despite their untimely demise after twenty years in showbiz, Fortuna POP! are fulfilling their contractual obligations to subscribers of their singles club with the release of four final smash hit 45s, the first of which comes from indie supergroop Cinema Red And Blue with "Come Back To The City, Babyface", a slice of feel good West Coast pop with a nod or two to in the direction of The Lovin' Spoonful. 

    The songs were farted out by David Feck of Comet Gain and recorded with Bongo Gary Olson at Marlborough Farms in New York City some years ago, time moving more slowly these days, and as for who played what it's hard to tell with all the mushrooms and whiskey swimming around the basement but unless the boys in the bodega didn't all do it you can count on some members of Comet Gain, Crystal Stilts and Pale Lights being involved. 

    Inevitably this will be a massive smash hit just as Fortuna POP! leave the rock'n'roll building, but hey, them's the breaks, enjoy the groovy sounds while you can.

    Fortuna POP!

    Flowers 'Say 123'

    £5.99

    London trio Flowers return with a new single via Fortuna POP!, the last to be released on the label, singer Rachel Kenedy's ethereal vocals and Sam Ayres textured guitar are, as always, backed by the powerful, metronomic beat of drummer Jordan Hockley. Rachel told us a little bit about the genesis of the recordings:

    “Sean from Fortuna POP! is sadly moving on to greener pastures in Japan and ending the label, but he asked us to do one last single for him, as we owed one for his Jukebox 45s Singles Club.  We don't know where we'll end up next after Fortuna POP!, so rather than looking forwards for this single we decided to be nostalgic and do something that, for us at least, is classic.  For the three of us in the band, "Flowers" has always meant our live performances and our home demos, of which Sam and I have produced hundreds and hundreds (we write them every day), and most of which will probably never be heard by anyone except us, our dog and our long-suffering neighbours.  "Say 123" is one of these home recordings.  The best bit is at the end.

    The b-side, "Rhodes", was recorded at Big Jelly Studios, where we'd gone to record an EP.  We realised after recording the songs we'd brought with us that we'd made a mistake, as the songs weren't quite right or ready yet.  But while we were there, we fell in love with the sound of the Fender Rhodes in the corner of the studio.  With about half an hour left before the van arrived to take us back to London, Sam quickly played me some chords on guitar and hummed a melody for a verse.  I got out a pencil and paper and somehow by the time all our gear was loaded into the van we'd written and recorded this song (we did it live and used one take).

    In keeping with the old-school Flowers theme for this single, we decided to hand-stamp the artwork onto each sleeve and vinyl label.  We used to hand-make all of our artwork, making paper sleeves for CDs we burned on our laptop with random selections of home-demos on.  

    These songs aren't from a forthcoming album or anything, but we really hope you enjoy them.“

  • Martha 'The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues' PRE-ORDER

    Fortuna POP!

    Martha 'The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues' PRE-ORDER

    £5.99

    Release Date: 24th November 2017

    The North-East’s favourite DIY punks Martha return with a new single via zombie label Fortuna POP!’s singles club, the very last to be released on the label. A-side “The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues” previously featured on the now sold out compilation “It Came From Plan-It-X” while B-side “Fix My Brain” is exclusive to this release.

    Having been battered by the cruelty of this Tory Government, "The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues", is a reminder that in spite of it all, we have love on our side. It's bittersweet; it's about the horrors of austerity and desperation but finding power in the tiny acts of resistance - whether it’s being in love or simply putting the heating on. The B-side is Martha's take on The Marked Men's "Fix My Brain" - one of the bands that started it all for Martha.

    Martha's version of their Dirtnap label mates' tune is a back to basics punk ripper, delivered with Martha's harmonious Northern charm. Both tracks were recorded at home in Durham with Jesus & His Judgemental Father's Danny Gibbins back in 2014.

    Hailing from Pity Me near Durham, Martha play energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies, informed by 90s indie rock and contemporary Scandinavian furniture. The band is comprised of J. Cairns (guitar), Daniel Ellis (guitar), Naomi Stephens (bass), and Nathan Stephens-Griffin (drums). All four members sing and write the songs.

    Their debut album “Courting Strong” came out in 2014 and was included in NPR's top 50 albums of that year, winning them the epithet “One of Britain's best rock bands” from Drowned in Sound.
    Their second album Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart was released in July 2016 to a similarly rapturous response, with the band playing End Of The Road Festival and Glastonbury at the personal invitation of Billy Bragg the same year.

    Following an emotional sold out headline set at the Scala as part of Fortuna POP!’s farewell celebrations in March of this year the band are currently working on new material.

    £15.99

    Release Date: 13/10/2017

    Cambodia's first guitar band officially reissued for the first time with identical artwork, postcard and exclusive liner notes. (includes digital version)

    Whereas most of the original recordings disappeared during the Khmers Rouge era, this 
    single bring back to us the Cambodian musical scene of the 1960s.

    For the first time two single records of Baksey Cham Krong - the first Cambodian guitar band - are officially being reissued in an identical version. Between surf music and ballad, these two records released in 1963 and 1964 are an invitation to rediscover the effervescent Khmer musical scene of the 1960s.

    The early 1960s are often described as the “golden age” of Cambodia, with a flourishing economy and a strong cultural development. As the country had just won its independence, the King Norodom Sihanouk - who had been a singer himself (see below) - encouraged dynamism and creativity in all aspects of cultural life. 

    In 1959, in the midst of this artistic turmoil, Mol Kamach and his brothers created a band: the Baksey Cham Krong (also spelled Bakseis Cham Krung) named after a temple of the Angkor site. The teenagers were influenced by the latest hits they had listened on the radio. 

    For the music, Kagnol got his inspiration from the rock n’ roll of the Ventures and the Shadows while Kamach took over the vocal techniques of crooners such as Paul Anka. The lyrics were either in French (as for the song Ne penser qu’à toi) or in Khmer. The song Pleine Lune became a hit and revealed Kagnol’s musical genius at playing guitar and Kamach’s delicate voice. 

    From their beginnings on the capital’s high school stages to their first broadcasts on national radio, the success of the Baksey Cham Krong was very quick. At the end of the decade the band already split, the brothers getting back to activities that conformed more with their parents’ expectations.

    A few years later, in April 1975, the arrival of the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh put an end to this musical development and started the darkest era of Cambodia’s contemporary history. A quarter of the population was killed in the Khmer Rouge genocide and the majority of artists and intellectuals were exterminated in a sordid will to wipe out any form of culture in the country. 

    Films and music were banned, movie tapes and vinyls were destroyed. Mol Kamach and Mol Kagnol luckily managed to flee the country: one now lives in France, the other in the USA. Both still continue to make music nowadays. 

    Bearing witness to the past history, the reissue of these two single records of Baksey Cham Krong brings back to us the Cambodian musical scene of the 1960s.

    Limited to 300 copies!

    Also keep an eye out for Monkey Marc’s other projects, like his JA produced smasher “No Surrender“, his upcoming album with UK mic legend YT, or past classics like his “Planet Smashers” EP on Jahtari from 2014 and his track for Roots Manuva’s 4everevolution album, “Who Goes There“.
