NEW STREET ADVENTURE No Hard Feelings (2014)

"...takin' a ride on a brand new tide..."
This is a new and - let me tell you - incredible release from the boys of NEW STREET ADVENTURE.
To be honest, I was a bit afraid that they have disappeared after some wonderful White Soul EPs. And I was even more delighted, when Acid Jazz Records contacted me to give me the opportunity to listen to the new material.
All the good memories that have been there, waiting to be revived.

 The musical style is not new - but this is meant in a good way!
There have been artists there before to celebrate this kind of music but it all was lost in time, and NEW STREET ADVENTURE picked up all the appropriate and fitting little pieces and rearranged them. And what came out is an incredible collection of almost forgotten memories and feelings.
I am not a fan of writing about every song and what other artist came to my mind, because I think that bands sometimes do not agree and do not feel the same way about it. (That was what I thought when I was a singer in a band years ago.)
They don't copy other artists - they write milestones and might be somebody's heroes one day as well. And NEW STREET ADVENTURE have what it takes to become one of them.

But to give you an overall impression of what came to my mind:
I hear Curtis Mayfield, Joe Jackson, The Style Council, Burt Baccharach, The James Taylor Quartet and even some "Shaft"...

I stand in my kitchen and I am stunned.
It has been such a long time since music touched me like this new record does. And I finally feel musically home again. Like when I first listened to The Style Council back in the 80s.
When I was young and short of money, I picked my new records very, very carefully. But now, in these fast and anonymous times, most music is cheap, heartless, soulless and actually a mass product, worth not much, and not long-lasting.
But this one is a record that I definitely would have bought with the last money to spend.
And now, readers, you have the chance to buy this gem and support a highly gifted band.
Some of the songs have been released on the EPs - but in different versions. And this album is more mature and definitely worth a place in your shelf!

NEW STREET ADVENTURE No Hard Feelings (2014)

01 On Our Front Doorstep
02 Keep It Burning
03 A Little alarmed
04 Be Somebody
05 Hunted
06 No Hard Feelings
07 Foolish Once More
08 Foot In The Door
09 She's An Attraction
10 Lucky Lady
11 The Crunch
12 Say You're Lonely
13 The Big A.C.

HAIRCUT ONE HUNDRED Pelican West (1982)

One Milestone in musical history. A classic recording from way back in the 80s.
Today the sound may be kind of naive but in 1982 it blew me away. And as I was just beginning to fall in love with Music, this record took me by the hand and was my companion for many years.
01 Love Plus One
02 Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)
03 Lemon Firebrigade
04 Marine Boy
05 Milk Film
06 Kingsize (You're My Little Steam Whistle)
07 Fantastic Day
08 Baked Bean

QUADROPHENIA - The Movie - 35th Anniversary

Today, 35 years ago, the movie QUADROPHENIA was released.
I can't recall the times that I watched it in the cinema. I can't recall the times that I watched in as a DVD. I still love the movie, I still love the original album...
...and did you know...?
"Monkey" was Toyah Willcox who you might know as TOYAH from the New Wave scene in the 80s.
She is still quite a beauty.
PHIL DANIELS ("Jimmy") was of course the guest vocals in "Parklife" from BLUR.
The opening scene at the cliffs (actually the final scene) and the scooter ride... "Can you see the real me?"
