Cat. Number: JR028

"Formed in the early '50s under the watchful eye of Tuskegee, Alabama, transplant Charles Chambliss, the Sensational Saints were handpicked from a Cleveland clothing store, a pool room, and from a group of friends singing from a third story window. After years spent rotating members and issuing stray singles for assorted non-denominational imprints, the group connected with the vocally inclined Reverend Melvin Kenniebrew at the close of the '60s, making good on their "Sensational" boast. "With God in their hearts and singing on their minds," the Sensational Saints mounted the… Read more

Though their first album on Western Vinyl 'Rivers Arms' garnered some good press, their 2006 debut captures the duo's unique magic as it first blossomed. With no label, distributor, manager, publicist, or booking agent the duo quietly self-released their first recordings and started playing live shows. Now, seven years later Western Vinyl reissue the album and make it available on vinyl for the first time ever. "

**Now available on vinyl** Fern Jones elbowed her way into music at a very young age, and in playing piano at the bars and clubs she ended up meeting her husband Raymond Jones at a mere 14 years old. By 16 they were married and he had felt the calling of God, so the two embarked on a life of preaching and heavy religion, something maybe not entirely understood by Fern, but she went under the will of her husband and got on with her now neutered life. She suddenly went from being a party girl to being a church girl, and this would undoubtedly have its drawbacks, so eventually … Read more

Though unplotted compared to the albums around which the songs orbit. ‘Ampersand Extras’ follows a logic which runs parallel to that of its precedents. Common to all Hubbert’s recordings from the current decade are the sounds of wood, calluses on nylon strings, fret buzz, breathing. But listen hard and you hear rain on windows.

Before they were even a proper band, singer Moses Brown had a couple of raw post-punk songs sitting on a four-track at his house. Once the lineup solidified, the band touched up one of those songs (“Dead Sea”) for a demo, then quickly wrote enough material to flesh out that demo (re-released on Deranged), a seven-inch (on Katorga Works), and now their debut EP for Sacred Bones.

"Vermont’s eponymous full-length debut also introduced the public to a different musical side of the project's founders Marcus Worgull and Danilo Plessow (of Motor City Drum Ensemble fame). An album worth of adventurous jam sessions and sleek synth soundscapes, it rather drew from sonic curiosity and the spirit of informal collaboration than the laser-like focus of the club tunes both producers have become known for. For this 12" Prins Thomas plunges into three reworks that emphasize the rhythmic elements of original cuts."

Wolfgang Voigt returns to sometime handle, SOG, for a smart lesson in Teutonic swagger. On 'STOA 1.1' he cuts an elegant figure with massive bass drum and swinging triplet rhythms carving a stately, head-high groove across the A-side, accentuated by only slight filter modulations for effortlessly hypnotic effect. 'STOA 1.2' on the other hand is more driving, determined, with a dry 4/4 heft sounding like a saltier take on his foundational Studio 1 series.

DELIA DERBYSHIRE & ANTHONY NEWLEY - Moogies Bloogies, Trunk Records
**Ahem…** "These rare and until now, unissued recordings started life way back in 1966. They were written by the multi-talented Anthony Newley, maybe for a pop release, but possibly - bearing in mind the kinky nature of the lyrics - for an experimental British TV show he was working on at the time. Unusually he wanted some electronic backgrounds for his words, and so called in the help of Delia Derbyshire, moonlighting a little from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. By the time the tracks were completed Newley was on his way to the USA for further acting and songwriting … Read more
