Fairport Convention "It All Came Round Again: Onstage and On Air 1982-1998" Deluxe Boxset to be Released on Madfish July 26, 2024

Reissue specialists Madfish are proud to present the Fairport Convention “It All Came Around Again: Onstage and On Air 1982-90” deluxe boxset.

For the first time ever, fans can experience the timeless magic of Fairport Convention’s second Golden age all in one place with this meticulously crafted and comprehensive package.

With access to hours of live performances both on stage at Cropredy and in session on the BBC, this bespoke Madfish offering, curated by Bert Jansch/John McLaughlin biographer Colin Harper, is the definitive tribute to the legendary British folk-rock band’s enduring legacy.

The Fairport Convention legend was forged between 1967 and 1979 – 12 years, 16 albums, umpteen line-ups and four exhausted people at the end of it. In August 1980, the last line-up – Simon Nicol, Dave Swarbrick, Dave Pegg and Bruce Rowland – reunited for a day in a farmer’s field in Cropredy, Oxfordshire, establishing the iconic 'Fairport's Cropredy Convention' festival in the process. Five relatively quiet years passed by before, in 1985 and by popular demand, a new recording and touring Fairport Convention assembled around Peggy and Simon. Everything moved up a gear. There would be four new albums by 1990 and BBC Radio welcomed the reborn folk-rockers with remarkable regularity.

Watch the Trailer: https://youtu.be/S7-QUgZ-QKU

*Limited edition 11CD + DVD set with 60-page book and slipcase
*Reproduction memorabilia signed by four members of the legendary 1970 Full House line-up: Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks
*Live at Cropredy Festival 1982–84 and 1986–87 plus BBC concerts and studio sessions
*Guest performances from Ralph McTell, June Tabor, Ian Anderson & Martin Barre (Jethro Tull)
*134 audio tracks – 57 previously unreleased
* Over 100 minutes of BBC DVD content including three bonus sessions from 1972–76

Mastering is by the mighty Eroc and the 60-page booklet features an extensive new essay by Kate Bush/John Martyn biographer Graeme Thomson, new appreciations by Fairport biographers Patrick Humphries and Nigel Schofield, vintage interview features by Colin Irwin and Mat Snow and superb photography from Dave Peabody.

The Fairport Convention “It All Came Round Again: Onstage And On Air 1982-1990’’ Boxset will be released on Madfish on 26th July. Pre-order here:  Madfish (https://burningshed.com/store/madfish)

THE RAVEONETTES Announce Highly Anticipated New Covers Album “Sing…” & First U.S. Tour In A Decade, Share Fresh Take On EVERLY BROTHERS Classic “ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM!”

Los Angeles, CA – Acclaimed indie rock duo The Raveonettes are set to take their hypnotic, dream pop sound to new heights on a much-anticipated new album, “Sing...,” available everywhere on July 19. This album is a remarkable collection of inspired covers, showcasing the band's unique interpretations of classics by The Shangri-Las, The Cramps, Buddy Holly, The Shirelles, The Velvet Underground, and many more!

Fans have already been clamoring about the band’s surprisingly lush cover of the beloved Gram Parsons alt-country masterpiece “Return Of The Grievous Angel,” released earlier this month. And today The Raveonettes treat us to the dreamiest of rock lullabies, the sweetly lilting Every Brothers ballad “All I Have To Do Is Dream.” Drenched in reverb with brittle, chiming guitars and a floor tom-heavy drum groove that’ll wake the neighbors, The Raveonettes turn the Everly’s sweet soda-fountain ‘50s bop into a modern shoegaze epic with a breadth and depth that you have to hear to believe.

Guitarist/vocalist Sune Rose Wagner says, “Sharin and I used to perform songs by The Everly Brothers before we changed our name to The Raveonettes, so our love for this band goes way back. You won’t find a more dreamy song than ‘All I Have To Do Is Dream,’ it’s the perfect lullaby in my book. We loved recording our version and hope people will rediscover such a timeless classic.”

The Raveonettes, consisting of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, have carved out a unique niche in the indie rock scene with their signature blend of dark, moody soundscapes and melodic pop sensibilities. With "Sing...," they push their creative boundaries even further, breathing new life into timeless tracks while preserving the essence that made them iconic. Watch for “Sing…” to be released on all formats including CD and vinyl July 19!

Multi-instrumentalist Mike Ian Releases New Americana Album “Waterworks Junction - Time Will Tell”

New release under the band name“Waterworks Junction” - A work from longtime friends and collaborators Matt Janda & Mike Ian and introducing Gab Howarth.

New music with an Americana, Rootsy vibe to it with elements of Bluegrass. Some of these tunes date back to the late 90’s where Mike & Matt recorded demos at Mike’s home studio, Eyeball Studios in NJ. At that time the tunes had a more progressive, Peter Gabriel type vibe with Mike performing instrumentation and both Mike and Matt performing vocal duties. Mike had met Gabby a few years back and was quite impressed by her vocals. The two started gigging together quite frequently. Matt then approached Mike at one of their gigs with the idea of having Gab do vocals for a resurrection of these older tunes. A female approach if you will.

The three members fine tuned these tunes both musically and lyrically over the course of a year and were quite happy with how it was shaping out. Mike had the chance to perform on a multitude of acoustic instruments including mandolin, pedal steel, upright bass, drums, piano, etc.  And various guest artists performed throughout. It turned into a full 14 song album entitled “Waterworks Junction - Time Will Tell” - The story of a woman from adolescence to her senior navigating the landscape of her life, loves, contemplations, desperations, and all of the other fabrics weaving the tapestry of her life. From a carefree childhood, through marriage, World War I, childbirth, the depression, World War II, the 50’s, the turbulent 60’s, and into the second Age of Enlightenment- the 70’s.

The artwork was once again done by Mike’s daughter, Ivy whom also did last years release “The Learning Tree”

Rock Legend Michael Hutchence Unreleased Tracks Featured on “One Way” Limited Edition Red 10-Inch Picture Disc - Available From Deko Entertainment and Boss Sonics on July 19th

Stockton, NJ - In the pantheon of all-time great front men, the late Michael Hutchence seat at the table is secured. A consummate “rock star” if there ever was one, he embodied the spirit and smoldering swagger of rock ‘n’ roll while possessing one of the most iconic voices in the contemporary music scene. So, it was with an earth-rattling shudder when tragically he passed away in 1997, leaving a mind-numbingly impressive legacy across the entertainment realm.

A decade or so after Michael’s death a batch of unreleased ideas surfaced in a tape locker in London. Producer Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Bowie, and Black Grape who sparked Hutchence’ initial interest in Saber) had been collaborating with Michael from 1995 up until days before his death and was approached to assess the find. In going through the ideas, it became immediately apparent this would be something worth exploring, so he began the process of developing and producing finished masters with a view to putting together some sort of release.

Saber then set about the task of getting a documentary film made that would center around the discovery and provide a vehicle, not only to tell Michael’s story but also promote the music. After getting traction with Directors such as Julian Temple and Mark Pellington, etc…, the “Last Rockstar” directed by Mark Llewellen known as a maverick with a penchant for fearless storytelling down under was finally released in 2017, its airing limited to Australian/New Zealand TV. While some portions of these songs were featured in the documentary, the fully mastered versions had never been released. Until now.

Listen to “One Way” here: https://youtu.be/4sP9BmaGW5w?si=FBs37YlUoVTTIdPX

With a legacy that extends over four decades, beginning with the iconic multi-platinum band INXS, who have sold over 50 million albums worldwide, as well as his solo projects, Hutchence was an unbridled talent whose cultural significance knew few bounds. Even in death, his impact continues. This unreleased material is a true piece of musical history and will forever solidify Michael Kelland Hutchence as the brilliant singer/songwriter he is.
