MICHAEL HEAD AND THE STRANDS The Olde World (Introducing The Strands)

 
 
I don't know if this album "officially" exists... And if it does, if it circulates under the name "Introducing The Strands" (under which I got it) or "The Olde World" (under which there is a cover available and a vinyl release as well).
I suppose, there is a sufficient reason for alternative 2.
So, here we go:
The "lost genius and among the most gifted British songwriters of his generation" [to quote the NME]... with demos and live tracks plus alternative mixes.
 
01 Glynys & Jaqui
02 The Prize
03 And Luna
04 Fontilan
05 X Hits The Spot
06 Poor Jill
07 Wanda
08 Hockens Hey
09 It's Harvest Time
10 Poor Jill 2
11 Queen Matilda
12 The Prize (der der)
13 Glynys & Jaqui
14 Green Velvet Jacket
15 Queen Matilda (Demo)
16 Something Like You (Live at Nulle Part Ailleurs - Canal + - 20_02_1998)
17 Queen Matilda (Alternative Take 3)
18 Queen Matilda (Alternative Take 4)

THE RIFLES Big Life (2016) New album out August 19th

A little appetizer... The pre-order download tracks:


Sounds like this is gonna be a brilliant album. It better should be...

Supplement on 26Jul2017:
Received news and a review on the album.
7 of 18 songs "falter", which - in plain words - means 39% rubbish. Even more as the review writer is
a) a mod
b) a brilliant britpop DJ
c) a very nice guy
So my expectations are kind of low.

Today a mail from ANDY PAWLAK reached me,saying that he found an old VHS video of his single "Mermaids" from back in 1988.
"I have just moved house and found the last remaining VHS
video of Mermaids......"
He digitalized it and then sent it to me so I can show it to you.
Ain't that awfully nice...?
It will also appear on andypawlak.com and on YouTube.
But first of all...... Here!
