    For Those Who Have Heart

    Ocala, Florida's A Day To Remember have managed to combine upbeat, melodic punk, and sensitive emo stylings with crushing metallic hardcore, creating a record that has a broad appeal, and could easily play shows alongside varying bands like Comeback Kid, Bury Your Dead and Silverstein.

    Sempiternal

    Heralded as one of the most anticipated albums of the year, Bring Me The Horizon's upcoming fourth studio album, Sempiternal, is the defining sound of heavy music in 2013. Proving to be perpetual favorites among fans, the album's first single "Shadow Moses" came charging out of the gates after premiering on Zane Lowe's BBC's Radio 1, forcing Epitaph to post the song on YouTube a week in advance due to popular demand.


    There's a very euphoric sound coursing through the album, a very uplifting but yet sad sound, says front-man Oliver Sykes. Electronically, it's far more advanced than anything we've done before.


    The five piece, consisting of Oliver Sykes, Lee Malia, Matt Kean, Matt Nicholls and Jordan Fish, recorded Sempiternal over a three month period with super producer Terry Date (Linkin Park, Deftones, Soundgarden). The band also brought in David Bendeth (A Day To Remember, Paramore) to add to the all-star production line-up and mix the album.


    Writing Sempiternal was a completely different process, comments Sykes. We worked from a computer, laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly until we had what we wanted. For the first time, Sempiternal sees a new member appearing on the record, Jordan Fish, who takes on keyboard duties on the record as well as during live performances. Bringing Jordan into the mix changed things completely; he opened up so many more possibilities.


    Sykes goes on to say, The lyrical theme is everything. My head was a lot clearer when writing this time and it allowed me to write from a different perspective. It's the best stuff I've ever written in my opinion. It's very dramatic, quite blunt, and at times sarcastic, but the biggest part of it - is how it is combined with the music to bring the listener vivid imagery and emotion. I think we really managed to pull that off.


    Sempiternal is an embracing ride through soaring vocals, supercharged melodies and what can only be described as spine tingling metal anthems. After the critical and commercial success of their previous albums, There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret (2010) and their breakout success Suicide Season (2008), Bring Me The Horizon plan to take heavy music to the next level, incorporating the most dynamic elements of hard music to create the most exhilarating album of the year.

    Old Record

    What's a relatively young band with their star on the rise to do when their new fans are having trouble tracking down their older releases? If you're Florida's A Day to Remember, you re-release one of them, remastered and complete with new artwork and title. Fans from the beginning probably don't need the aptly titled OLD RECORD, despite the crisp new sound. But newcomers will flip their lids over A Day to Remember's special blend of muscular hardcore and approachable pop-punk. Audio Mixer: Andrew Wade. Recording information: The Wade Studio, Ocala, FL.

    Bad Vibrations

    On their new album, Bad Vibrations, A Day to Remember claim to have approached the writing process with no expectations and organically came up with their finest work to date. ADTR have certainly come a long way since their beginnings in Ocala, Florida back in 2003. Through constant touring, hard work and persistence the band has grown to be the biggest in their scene. Their unique sound which mixes pop punk, hardcore and metal has been dubbed affectionately as "pop mosh" by their fans. Over the course of their career, ADTR have sold out entire continental tours, landed two Top 25 Billboard debuts, sold over 2.1 million records and have 2 Gold certified Albums.


    According to Jeremy McKinnon, ADTR's frontman, this album " came together organically. We took some time to get together and write with no real expectations," says the singer. The band took a trek up to Fort Collins, CO where they'd collaborate with Descendants' Bill Stevenson who produced the album.


    The lead single "Paranoia" raced up the Active Rock Charts upon release , and McKinnon recalls , "That song just kind of came out of nowhere one day-and we were all really pumped on it." Radio is just one key to this band's success, as touring is front and center to the ADTR master plan. The band has curated their own music Festival, dubbed Self Help Fest - since 2014 - with the attendance growing each year. In March 2016 over 17,000 fans attended the fest in San Bernardino, CA. , which was headlined by ADTR and featured some of the best bands in the scene.

    Unbreakable / Back To Me (7 Single)

    Limited To 1000

    Half White / Half Grey With Black Splatter

    Of Mice & Men are one of the largest bands on the Rise Records roster. They've spent the past couple of years growing into a well-respected rock act, earning praise from critics, their peers, and even their icons. They've sold over 830,000 albums in the US alone, they've had atop 5 debut on the Billboard Top 200, and they have been busy touring arenas and amphitheaters with the likes of Linkin Park, Slipknot,Marilyn Manson, Rise Against, A Day To Remember and Bring Me The Horizon. They've graced the covers of multiple publications(Revolver, Alternative Press, Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Metal Hammer, Blunt), and have constantly been able to nurture and develop a rabid following that feels more like a family than a fan base.

    The band took a recent break from touring and recorded two brand new singles, Unbreakable and Back To Me. Both songs were produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Daughtry, All American Rejects), and the result is 2 very powerful tracks that have quickly become fan favorites. Both songs have had great success on all of the streaming services (Unbreakable has over 5,042,374 streams& Back To Me has over 2,075,738 streams).

    Deadweight

    Pressed On Colored Vinyl

    WAGE WAR If you think that you've already heard it all when it comes to heavy music, you just haven't heard Wage War. The group - which is composed of vocalist Briton Bond, guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad, guitarist Seth Blake, bassist Chris Gaylord and drummer Stephen Kluesener - formed in Ocala, Florida, in 2013 and instantly started playing all over the area, quickly getting signed to Fearless Records the old fashioned way: By sending a song to the label. From there the group linked up with the production team of Andrew Wade (Neck Deep, Motionless In White) and A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon who produced their 2015 debut Blueprints together and returned to produce the sophomore full-length Deadweight, which the band started writing immediately after they finished their debut.

    "I'm very proud of Blueprints but a lot of those songs were written seven years ago so who we are as people and musicians these days is drastically different," Quistad explains - and a listen to Deadweight confirms that statement. "I think a big strength of this new record is the continuity of sitting in a room together and playing instead of trying to send files back and forth," he continues. "We were truly grinding out songs and I think this album still sounds like Wage War but, at the same time, it has some of our most melodic moments as well as some of the heaviest." The latter is evidenced on songs like "Stitch" which is certain to incite frenzied mosh pits for years to come and displays an aggression that the band has only hinted at in the past.

    "We really tried to not overthink things on this record and just do whatever worked for the song, even if it was something that people might not necessarily expect," Quistad says. For this reason, the band decided it made sense to enlist the aforementioned producers who truly understood Wage War on a deep level. "There were so many early mornings and late nights making this record and it was such a pleasure to work with Andrew and Jeremy again because you could tell that they really cared about it and would go to any ends to make it the best that it could be." From the explosive production to the alternately screamed and sung vocals of "Don't Let Me Fade Away," all seven of the people involved in the making of TBA worked as one unit in working toward the same collective goal.

    Lyrically, Deadweight sees the band exploring both personal to political issues in a way that's as raw and honest as the music that supports them. "This record is very much a snapshot of the past year; we are all very positive people but in 2016 we went through so much from seeing the world for the first time to scraping the bottom at some point emotionally or with relationships," Quistad admits. From 3 a.m. run-ins with refugees in Europe to flying home only to be confronted with the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, there was no shortage of content to draw from this time around. "We didn't hold anything back when it came to this record, so hopefully it's as therapeutic for listeners as it was for us."

    In a heavy music scene that's increasingly formulaic, Wage War pride themselves on the fact that they listen to a diverse range of music. "I'm a big fan of country music which surprises a lot of people and other guitarist Seth is really into pop music," Quistad explains. "We have an appreciation for all kinds of stuff and I think that all of it bleeds into the album in some way even if it's not always blatant." Take the song "Johnny Cash" which recalls the country tradition of paying homage to a pioneer of a genre while still retaining the heaviness of the act. "We get called metalcore a lot but we've never pledged allegiance to any genre because we always want to do something beyond that in the sense that we just listen to what we love and try to incorporate that into Wage War."

    More than anything though, the band can't wait to get back on the road and start playing the songs from Deadweight live. "We played three hometown shows at the end of last year where we would include a new song and it was so cool to see the crowd react to the new material," Quistad says - and it's obvious that palpable excitement goes both ways. "This album is the truest representation of Wage War in the sense that we wanted to put every part of us under the microscope and come up with something that we're not only proud of but also encompasses what we want to be as a band and the kind of musical statement we want to lay down," he summarizes. "I would say this is a defining album for our band."

    Restoring Force

    After massive amounts of hype and anticipation, Of Mice & Men blew all expectations out of the water with their
    early 2010 self-titled debut, selling over 75,000 copies to date. They didn't skip a beat with their follow up album
    - The Flood, selling over 15,000 units in its rst week and another 9k in the rst week of the deluxe reissue
    version. The Flood has currently scanned over 130,000 units. They've spent the majority of the last few years
    supporting large artists such as A Day To Remember, August Burns Red, Bring Me The Horizon, As I Lay
    Dying and more. They've also headlined Warped Tour as well as sold out tours in the US, UK & Australia.

    Of
    Mice & Men went in the studio with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Bring Me The
    Horizon) to record their 3rd full length, RESTORING FORCE. The album does exactly that, it restores the band
    as a massive force in the scene that they've thrived in for the past years, but beyond that it showcases the band's
    growth as both songwriters and performers. Frontman Austin Carlile returns and gives his most brutal and
    honest performance to date while clean singer, Aaron Pauley, who is making his Of Mice & Men debut, truly
    shines and will become a star in his own right. The band will hit the road immediately after the release, spending
    the entire spring on the road with Bring Me The Horizon and Issues as well as performing as a headliner on
    Warped Tour, etc. In making "Restoring Force" the band has created an album that will please the large
    hard-rock, mosh-happy fan base that they've accrued over the years, while also allowing them to continue
    growing and appealing to a wider and wider audience.

    Something To Remember

    Something to Remember is Madonna's second greatest-hits collection, compiling a selection of the singer's ballads. Several of her biggest hits are included, including the number ones Crazy for You, Live to Tell, This Used to Be My Playground, and Take a Bow, as well as a handful of first-rate album tracks (a remixed Love Don't Live Here Anymore, Something to Remember, and three new tracks, most notably a version of Marvin Gaye's I Want You recorded with the British trip-hop group Massive Attack. Only two tracks on the album overlap with The Immaculate Collection, and the disc also marks the first appearance of This Used to Be My Playground and I'll Remember on one of Madonna's albums. Throughout the album, Madonna proves that she's a terrific singer whose voice has improved over the years. Not one of the tracks is second-rate, and the best songs on Something to Remember rank among the best pop music of the '80s and '90s.

    Remember Us To Life

    Regina Spektor returns with her seventh album Remember Us To Life out on Sire/Warner Bros. Records.


    The new LP marks Spektor's first outing since 2012's What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Album Chart and her Grammy-nominated theme song "You've Got Time" for the hit Netflix show Orange Is The New Black.


    Remember Us To Life is composed entirely of all new songs recently written by Spektor, a change from past albums when she would record songs written throughout her career. Spektor gave birth to her first child in 2014 and she spent considerable time writing during and after her pregnancy. Says Spektor "I made more art and felt more inspired than I had in a long time."


    Spektor recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (David Byrne/Brian Eno, Frightened Rabbit, Paolo Nutini) in Los Angeles at The Village Studios. Says Spektor of Abrahams, "he is such a kind and talented musician. And person! I felt very grateful to work with him."


    Born in the Soviet Union, Spektor began studying classical piano when she was six. Her family emigrated in 1989, landing in New York City, where she continued her classical training. Spektor eventually studied composition at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College where she graduated with honors. She began writing pop songs in her late teens and made her recorded debut in 2001 with the self-released 11:11, a collection of songs heavily influenced by jazz and blues. Songs followed in 2002 and Soviet Kitsch in 2004. Spektor's commercial breakthrough came in 2006 on her fourth LP, Begin to Hope. The gold-certified album included the singles "On the Radio," "Better" and "Fidelity," which climbed the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Spektor's fifth album, Far released in 2009, and sixth album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats released in 2012, both debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Lady Day (Pure Pleasure)

    Excerpt from George Avakian's notes on the album sleeve:



    When planning this album, I had a hellish time trying to choose what I thought were the absolute cream of Billie Holiday. In the course of this wrestling, it struck me that not only were Billie's vocals incredibly perfect, but that I could not remember a single instance of anyone playing a bad solo or even a bad phrase among the hundred or more performances I had to choose from in the golden period of her work. Checking over records (which was almost unnecessary, because I could still remember them almost note for note) was a rather beautiful and somewhat shattering experience. Jazz, a product of so many things - musical evolution, the social scene of a particular time, the economic atmosphere of the moment, what somebody had for breakfast that day - and none of those tings will ever come together again as they did when these records were made.



    Musicians:



    • Billie Holiday (vocal)

    • Ben Webster, Lester Young (tenor saxophone)

    • Johnny Hodges (alto saxophone)

    • Roy Eldridge, Buck Clayton (trumpet)

    • Benny Goodman, Art Shaw (clarinet)

    • John Truehart (guitar)

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Saves The Day

    Saves the Day is dead. Long live Saves the Day.


    Of course, with the departure of long-time lead guitarist Dave Soloway prior to the release of Daybreak in 2009, that may have been the moment that marked the final days of an early 2000s emo powerhouse. But even that album felt more like a body of work you could have expected from Chris Conley and company in the past.


    The band's newest self-titled release marks a well-documented departure from the days of Stay What You Are, In Reverie, and, hell, even Sound the Alarm. Whereas previous entries in the band's catalogue have dealt with the anxious, even nerve-wracking realities of the young and socially awkward, Saves the Day instead starts off on a power-pop riff and hardly strays from it (not that anyone's complaining.)


    The first two tracks, "Remember" and "In the In Between," set the tone for the rest of the LP. The fast-paced, poppy tunes are care-free ventures, something missing from Conley's writing since In Reverie.


    Oddly enough, Saves the Day sounds more like the bands that have fondly proclaimed that Can't Slow Down, Through Being Cool and Stay What You Are inspired their own sounds. That sentiment becomes even more pronounced as the album plays on.


    "Beyond All of Time" slows things down a bit before "Ain't No Kind of Love" kicks the tempo back up a bit. Both tracks flow into each other nicely. And although neither stands out on its own, the songs reinforce the mood of the album.


    "Lucky Number" plays much the same, fitting into the album nicely as a piece of the puzzle, but without offering much on its own merit.


    The song "Xenophobic Left Hook" by title alone demonstrates that Conley hasn't yet lost his lyrical style. But the sound that accompanies his vocals is drastically different than ever before and it can be directly attributed to the band's ever-changing lineup.


    "The Tide of Our Times" is one of the album's truly outstanding tracks. It's catchy. It's fast. It's less than two-and-a-half minutes long and it's emblematic of everything Saves the Day does right in this album.


    "Supernova" is, lyrically, the closest we might come to a traditional Conley track. The imagery and metaphors are wonderfully woven throughout the ballad.


    "Verona" picks the pace back up, leading nicely into another of the album's best tracks: "Ring Pop." The pace is fast and the lyrics recall carefree days when a ring pop may have sufficed as a symbol of courtship. It's the essence of what makes some of Conley's best music, harkening to a past with the sentimentality ramped up to 11.


    "Stand in the Stands" is, by far, the most up-beat and optimistic album closer Saves the Day has ever composed. Standing in stark contrast to even the band's sunnier albums and closers like "Firefly" and "Tomorrow Too Late," the track starts with a bouncy melody and doesn't let up for the nearly four minutes it plays out.


    Although Daybreak was the first album where Conley was the last of the band's founding members left, it carried hints of Sound the Alarm and Under the Boards, primarily because of those three albums' conceptual ties (They were designed as a trilogy that started with 2006's Sound the Alarm).


    If Conley's way with words is what drew you to the band, this will be right up your alley. Saves the Day may not be the band you remember, but Conley's presence maintains the only lyrical and moody consistency that we really need.

    Tied To A Star

    J Mascis' Tied to a Star is the follow up to his acclaimed Sub Pop debut
    Several Shades of Why. The album, led by the songs "Every Morning"
    and "Wide Awake," was recorded and produced by Mascis and mixed
    by John Agnello at Bisquiteen in Amherst, MA.


    It makes perfect sense that I was asked to write a bio for J Mascis.
    Let's face it, he and I have a long history. It all started the first time I
    saw him live. It was in New York City. I don't remember when or where,
    but I think he was walking around. I was probably walking around, too.
    The second time was also in New York, at a Mexican restaurant in the
    East Village (the one that takes credit cards now, but didn't used to).
    Years later I actually met him at the SXSW festival though a friend who
    works at Sub Pop. I guess that meeting went well, because when that
    friend from Sub Pop got married, she sat me at the same table as J.
    Sounds unbelievable? I suggest you look at the picture below. Now keep
    staring at that picture until... J's new acoustic
    album Tied to a Star comes out on Sub Pop Records. It features
    appearances by Ken Maiuri (Young@Heart Chorus), Pall Jenkins (Black
    Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Chan Marshall
    (Cat Power). Had I been in the area, I'm sure I would've been asked to
    play on it, too.

    Kissing To Be Clever is the debut album by Culture Club. Originally released in 1982, it immediately put the band on the musical map. Turning the flamboyant Boy George into a star, the Soulful Pop outing incorporated elements of Pop, Rock, New Wave, Dance and Caribbean rhythms and sprouted several international hit songs.


    Do You Really Want To Hurt Me hit the #1 spot in several countries and turned out to be a song that resonates to this day with its universal feel of heart ache. All in all, this set is a highlight of 80s Pop music, that set the stage for one of the decade's most loved and oft-remembered bands.

    Last Days and Time

    Last Days and Time is the third studio album by American R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, released in 1972, their debut album on Columbia Records. It was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood, California, with founder and multi-instrumentalist Maurice White, Verdine White and Philip Bailey.


    Due to their live performances it cemented their status as the main funk band and set the stage for the band's blockbuster breakthrough. Songs on the album like Make It With You (originally from Bread) the pre-Brazilian Rhyme powerful funk sax style Power, (which sounds like an early version of Serpentine Fire) and Remember The Children are excellent examples of the great songs and albums they have made during their career.

    What A Way To Die

    The archetype for the '60s-era girl group was etched indelibly into stone, like a commandment: three pretty girls with matching outfits and bouffant hairdos would sing, with musical backing supplied by a bunch of guys standing in the shadows. The Quatro sisters shattered that archetype forever with the Pleasure Seekers, an all-girl teenage rock & roll group who played all the instruments themselves and were fully capable of wiping the stage with any male band that crossed their path.


    The Quatro girls had been brought up in a musically-minded family, nurtured with classical piano and vocal lessons. As Patti recalls, "By 1964, I had been taking guitar lessons, hanging with musicians in the local music scene. We had seen a Beatles concert, and I was quite dazed and focused at the event, watching the audience cry and scream out of control. It was my epiphany moment, and I was determined to start an all-girl band."
    Shortly thereafter, the first lineup of the Pleasure Seekers fell into place with Patti Quatro (lead guitar), Marylou Ball (rhythm guitar), Suzi Quatro (bass), Diane Baker (keyboards), Nan Ball (drums) and vocal duties shared by all. Around the fall of 1965 the girls dared local teen club manager Dave Leone to give them a slot at his popular Hideout Club, claiming they were better than most of the other live bands there. "You're on," responded Leone, "in two weeks. Three songs!"


    The Pleasure Seekers were soon a popular feature at the club, honing their skills alongside the likes of the Rationals, the Amboy Dukes and Bob Seger & the Last Heard. "In the beginning, there was a lot of skepticism," remembers Patti, "especially the first night. The boys crowded the stage, the girlfriends pulled them away with laughter, as if 'Girls playing?! Yeah, right!' It was always satisfying to see them be silenced quickly when we began playing. We grew used to seeing slack jaws open in surprise." Next they were asked by Leone to record and release a single on his Hideout label.


    That March 1966 release is now regarded as the greatest "girl garage" single of the era: "Never Thought You'd Leave Me" b/w "What a Way to Die." "Dave brought lyrics, and we put the songs together quickly," remembers Patti. "We felt very legit in making this record at a small local studio. Nan was the sexy voice on 'Never Thought You'd Leave Me,' and there was lots of laughter as Marylou added the screams on 'What a Way to Die.'" Suzi Quatro remembers the recording as "very important and memorable."


    The Pleasure Seekers were soon in demand in the region, playing teen clubs, parties, colleges and local TV shows. After a series of lineup changes, the band brought in older Quatro sister Arlene (keyboards) and Darline Arnone (drums), the first female drummer sponsored by Slingerland Drums. A short time later, Pami Benford joined-up on guitar and bass (that lineup lasting through most of 1968). "It was a very versatile group," remembers Patti, "with Pami and Suzi sharing bass, and Pami and I sharing lead and rhythm guitars."


    "The gender bias was my hot button," recalls Arlene, "along with confidence in our musical abilities. With women musicians dismissed as a novelty, I delighted in watching the audience go from skepticism/ridicule, to shock/cheers." For Suzi, though, this period was where she learned her craft: "I considered myself a musician, and didn't really think about gender too much." Two tracks recorded in 1967, but unissued at the time, "Elevator Express" and "Gotta Get Away," highlight the band's growing musical maturity since their Hideout debut. "Detroit was the best learning ground in the world for musicians," recalls Suzi, "with an amazing energy and creativity that is in every successful artist that has come out of the city." "We were actually one of the earliest Detroit bands traveling the country," adds Patti. "Everyone wanted this unusual all girl band who rocked an entire Motown revue (changing instruments and singers throughout) and an entire Sgt. Pepper/Magical Mystery Tour revue, as well as covering English bands, acid rock and everything in between."


    Signing up with Associated Booking Corporation, the group began making the transition from local to national act. Producer Dick Corby caught the Pleasure Seekers at Trude Heller's in New York's Greenwich Village and signed them to a Mercury Records deal in early 1968. To keep rein on their finances in NYC, Patti recalls, "We booked Arthur's nightclub for a month, staying at the infamous rock Gorham Hotel, recording by day-playing by night." Also in residence were the Who, the Blues Magoos and an assortment of other bands. "Hitting NYC as young teens, it was exciting, scary, fun-all emotions churning," she continues. "We felt we had hit the big time, going from the tiny local Hideout session to the huge Mercury professional studio facility, complete with session people adding strings and other elements."


    A single pairing "Good Kind of Hurt" and "Light of Love" was released in April 1968, while a third song, "Locked in Your Love," remained in the can. The group then headed out to the Northwest for a lengthy tour. "The Northwest tour was awesome," remembers Patti. "We were billed with Canned Heat, Boyce & Hart and Merilee Rush, and were held over six weeks to tour with Eric Burdon and the Animals. The Mercury single was out, momentum was surging." Both sides of the single were getting airplay, but ultimately it failed to gain any traction. "Really neither song reflected our own sound," admits Patti. "We rearranged 'Light of Love' for live performance, feeling disconnected to the record, yet realizing we had to play ball with the executives to keep us rolling."


    Ultimately Mercury's vision for the Pleasure Seekers clashed rather sharply with the band's vision. "The suits wanted tits and ass," recalls Darline, "wowing Vegas crowds, playing tinkly tunes in lavish costumes." "In that male-dominated music era, we were strictly a novelty, and a high-risk endeavor," adds Patti. "The record executives felt women musicians would fall in love or get pregnant so were not worth investing the time and money. We had to kick down many doors. We were serious musicians, and in it for the right reasons. In the end, we were not happy with a forced direction that Mercury Records had in mind, and ended up leaving the label to rock our music in our own fashion."


    After a memorable 1968 Far East tour, playing for wounded returning American soldiers from Vietnam, the Pleasure Seekers (with new drummer Nancy Rogers) returned to a Detroit that was now, in Patti's words, "exploding with heavier sounds. That sparked us to change direction with new ideas we had been exploring. Arlene left the band and we brought in our youngest sister Nancy (vocals). With Suzi's Joplinesque vocals combined with Nancy's wailing 'female Robert Plant' style, we enjoyed a harder edged, 'double-punch' effect."


    The last four songs on the album, "White Pig Blues," "Brain Confusion," "Where Have You Gone?" and the atmospheric psychedelic mover "Mr. Power," all date from this 1968-69 period when the Pleasure Seekers were playing the Grande Ballroom alongside the MC5, Alice Cooper, the Stooges, the Amboy Dukes and SRC. With this change in musical direction and the departure of Arlene and Pami, the band forged on as Cradle. Suzi Quatro departed for England in 1971, launching a successful solo career. Patti and Nancy continued with Cradle until 1973 when Patti joined another pioneering female rock group, Fanny.


    The Pleasure Seekers reunited recently in April 2012 (minus Suzi) for a well-received show in their hometown, where they were inducted into Detroit's Hall of Fame. "I think all of us Quatro girls are extremely proud of our pioneering days" reflects Patti. "In a renaissance-era of music, we kicked down doors for women to rock heavy. There were key times in our lives of making decisions that may have turned us towards larger fame, but less happiness-depending on your philosophy of such things. The Pleasure Seekers could have been a Las Vegas show act bringing in buckets of money or on Motown, turned very formulaic girlie-soul. But we stayed true to our goals, and I don't think any of us have any regrets of staying our course and playing the music that moved us. It's all been a thrilling ride with great memories."

    It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

    Ranked 78/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.


    25th Anniversary


    I hated that record, said Public Enemy's Chuck D. Believe it or not, he's referring to Bring the Noise, the frenetic first track of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, the group's 1988 agit-rap masterpiece and breakthrough album. Public Enemy had recorded the song in October 1987 for the soundtrack of the forgettable Less Than Zero. When Chuck (a.k.a. Carlton Ridenhour) first heard the final version, he said, I practically threw it out the window.


    He changed his mind later that year when Public Enemy were on tour in England. I kept hearing people ask, 'What's this record you've got out? People are going crazy over it,' he remembered. I was like 'OK, pull that acetate out, and let's play it [in concert].' People went berserk.


    Bring the Noise, along with Rebel Without a Pause and Don't Believe the Hype - all conceived in 1987 at the group's Hempstead, Long Island, studio, Spectrum City - would become the foundation of It Takes a Nation of Millions, an album that's loud, obnoxious, funky, avant-garde, political, uncompromising and hilarious all at once. Chuck may have been disgruntled over Bring the Noise, but he always liked Rebel Without a Pause, the track that introduced Public Enemy's trademark sirenlike horn squeals. Hank Shocklee of PE's production team, the Bomb Squad, says that Rebel started out as a response to Eric B. and Rakim's I Know You Got Soul. We were going for something that had the same feel but with more aggression, Shocklee said. Because we were angry.


    For Rebel, PE coupled piercing squeals (a snippet from the J.B.'s' The Grunt played backward) with James Brown's Funky Drummer (Because that song was my milk, said Shocklee). Then it fell on Chuck to write the lyrics. I remember locking myself in the house for 24 hours, Chuck said. He emerged with verses that emulated Rakim's off-the-rhythm flow but stayed true to his own booming-baritone persona (Soul, rock & roll, comin' like a rhino); Chuck also dropped the name of black activist Joanne Chesimard, hinting at the political direction that his rhymes would soon take.


    Don't Believe the Hype, recorded just before Bring the Noise, was Chuck's first foray into full-fledged polemics, in this case against the media. The lyrics were inspired by a slight against Chuck by New York-area radio DJ Mr. Magic. PE had serious doubts about that song, too. We thought 'Hype' was just garbage, said Shocklee. Again, they saw the response the song got when DMC (of the group Run-DMC) blasted the track out of his Bronco in Harlem on a Saturday night. The whole block was grooving to it, says Shocklee.


    In January 1988, it all fit together. You had the combination of the noise from 'Rebel,' says Chuck, the tempo of 'Bring the Noise' and the subject matter of 'Don't Believe the Hype.' It set off Takes a Nation pretty nice.

    This Is The Town: A Tribute To Nilsson Vol 1

    Pressed On Yellow Limited Edition Vinyl


    This Is The Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume One), is a 20-track collection that celebrates the artistry and songs of the legendary singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Produced by Kenny Siegal and recorded over the course of 2013 at Old Soul Studios in Catskill, NY, the album features a diverse gathering of young artists performing songs that span the breadth of Nilsson's repertoire, including "Early In The Morning" by Langhorne Slim, "Jump Into The Fire" by Low Cut Connie, "Are You Sleeping" by Marco Benevento, "Rainmaker" by Yellowbirds, "Think About Your Troubles" by Willy Mason and "Everybody's Talkin'" by Tracy Bonham. Harry's daughter Annie Nilsson contributes a rendition of "Gotta Get Up," along with the original illustrations that serve as the album's artwork.


    "Each artist has taken a Nilsson song that meant something to them, and with passion and inspiration, transformed it into something that is both a fitting tribute, and entirely their own," Kenny Siegal explains. "In doing so, they are helping Harry Nilsson to be remembered as his songs live again through these new creative interpretations."


    Harry Nilsson's son Zak Nilsson has endorsed This Is The Town, stating: "There is a huge breadth of talent here. So many of these songs grabbed me from the first phrase, like it kicks in and I'm just sitting here thinking, 'oh wow.' Some of them are just absolutely perfect. They are covers of Harry's songs, but they have a lot of those sort of signature Nilsson twists in them. The kind of versions only real fans of Harry's music could put together."


    Conceived by Kenny Siegal as a two volume set, he is already at work recording the second edition to the tribute.

    How To Solve Our Human Problems (Part 1) (Pre-Order)

    A new Belle and Sebastian release is always something to cheer. So three new releases leads to the inevitable conclusion: three cheers! Here is the latest installment in a career that has always pursued a singular and delightful vision of what pop represents and what it can achieve, a career that has seen them triumph against the odds to win a Brit award, be one of the first bands to curate their own festival, and play at the official London residence of the US ambassador (the last president's ambassador, not the current one's).


    Murdoch, as ever, is not the only writer. Sarah Martin (violin/vocals) brought in the delicious 'The Same Star', which marries Belle and Sebastian's melodiousness to a pounding Motown backbeat, and was produced by Leo Abrahams (Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts, Regina Spektor). "We'd met Leo in February of 2016, and I'd say that meeting and the recording of 'I'll Be Your Pilot' were the first tangible steps of this EP project," Martin says. "We didn't have a stack of songs to play him, but we liked him and he became a part of the plan from that point - and when I'd got to a point with 'The Same Star' where it just needed to be recorded, I thought it could benefit from having a producer to steer things, and fortunately we had a slot in the diary marked 'Leo' coming up. It's not a song we'd laboured over playing for months - it fell together quite quickly thanks in large part to Bob's [Bobby Kildea, guitarist] enthusiasm and Stuart's willingness to dismember an old song and repurpose the break, so that it wasn't just the same three chords over and over and over."


    There's one big reason why 15 songs are coming out on three EPs, rather than one album. "We'd made a couple of LPs, Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister, within the space of six months," Murdoch says, remembering the early days of the band's career, and how that fed into their decision-making this time.

Sarah Martin (violin/vocals) brought in the delicious 'The Same Star', which marries Belle and Sebastian's melodiousness to a pounding Motown backbeat, and was produced by Leo Abrahams (Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts, Regina Spektor). "We'd met Leo in February of 2016, and I'd say that meeting and the recording of 'I'll Be Your Pilot' were the first tangible steps of this EP project," Martin says. "We didn't have a stack of songs to play him, but we liked him and he became a part of the plan from that point - and when I'd got to a point with 'The Same Star' where it just needed to be recorded, I thought it could benefit from having a producer to steer things, and fortunately we had a slot in the diary marked 'Leo' coming up. It's not a song we'd laboured over playing for months - it fell together quite quickly thanks in large part to Bob's [Bobby Kildea, guitarist] enthusiasm and Stuart's willingness to dismember an old song and repurpose the break, so that it wasn't just the same three chords over and over and over."


    There's one big reason why 15 songs are coming out on three EPs, rather than one album. "We'd made a couple of LPs, Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister, within the space of six months," Murdoch says, remembering the early days of the band's career, and how that fed into their decision-making this time.

    Box Set Features All Three 5-Song 12 EPs In One Convenient Package


    A new Belle and Sebastian release is always something to cheer. So three new releases leads to the inevitable conclusion: three cheers! Here is the latest installment in a career that has always pursued a singular and delightful vision of what pop represents and what it can achieve, a career that has seen them triumph against the odds to win a Brit award, be one of the first bands to curate their own festival, and play at the official London residence of the US ambassador (the last president's ambassador, not the current one's).
