PRE-ORDER // Corduroy – ‘Rare Stock’ CD/LP
Just in-time for an extensive UK tour throughout March and April, Corduroy release their Rare Stock Collection of out-takes and rarities. It shows a depth and musicality in their catalogue beyond and above their better known material. It also acts as an alternative timeline of the height of their career in the 1990s.
The tracks range from extracts taken from their original demo tape that won them their contract at Acid Jazz – Goober Grape and Hicky Burr – to the abandoned sessions for an abandoned fourth album in the middle of the decade, from which an early version of the compelling Clockwork Man appeared.
In between there is the cancelled 1995 single Summer In My Eye, the vocal version of Very Yeah, which was itself considered as a single. The collection also comes with a brand new mix of 1994 hit Mini, by Ashley Beedle of X-Press 2 fame.
To kick us off in 2019 is the news of a new label from our label manager and DJ about town DJ Dom Ore. Miles Away Records will reissue gems from around the world starting off with the amazing ‘Patience’ by Rokk.
Heavily influenced by Gil Scott-Heron’s ‘The Bottle’ it is a cult dance floor anthem that has never been reissued as a stand alone single. This limited edition of 500 copies is sure to do swift business.
Recorded in Los Angeles, the band Rokk whose roots lie in the 1964 meeting between James Dockery and Arthur Monday. La Marco Nesbit and Denny Lash later joined in the mid 70s and together they formed Rokk. They released one single for the Vee-Jay International label and recorded and album which lay in the vaults for over 30 years.
For our final release of 2018 we’ve put together all of our favourite tracks from the year for your listening pleasure.
This release includes tracks from the quintessential ‘Jazz On The Corner’, Matt Berry’s Music‘s incredible ‘Television Themes’, Judy Dyble’s amazing ‘Earth Is Sleeping’, Laville‘s debut single ‘Easy’, Corduroy’s return to Acid Jazz and lastly some of our favourite Leroy Hutson tracks.
We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support in 2018, we’ve got loads in store for 2019! Merry Christmas and have a happy new year.
