Kentucky rockers BLACK STONE CHERRY will release a blues EP, "Black To Blues", on September 29 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.
The Fall's New Facts Emerge opens with a track that sounds a bit like a mean-spirited parody of the Fall, as an incomprehensible Mark E. Smith spouts gibberish over some random noise hovering in the background. Then "Fol de Rol," the first proper song, kicks in, and as the band lays into a minimalistic but ferocious slab of garage-centric punk rock, Mark E. Smith…well, he spouts gibberish, or at least it's pretty hard to tell what he's on about most of the time. The difference is, this time Smith sounds fully energized and ready to tear a hole in your sound system with the tension and power of his vocals.
Limited deluxe two CD digipak edition including a bonus CD containing acoustic versions of seven of the album's tracks. 2010 release from the British Pop vocalist best known as one-half of Synth Pop duo Soft Cell. Almond's first studio album of original self-written material for 10 years. Variete is both a dramatic celebration in song of the thwarted glamour of the fag-end of the show business of yesteryear and a brave and revealing body of autobiographical songs.
