NEW NORTHERN SOUL Various Artists (2015)

 
 
Well, what exactly is NEW NORTHERN SOUL?
I don't even know if this technical term actually already exists - if not... then here it is - and what people define as NEW NORTHERN SOUL then.
I made the term up for my purpose now and this is what came out...
It is kind of an "Indie-Pop Organ-Brass-Driven Up-Tempo Dance Thing".
And these are my favourite representatives:
 
01 Are You Trying to Be Lonely? - PAUL WELLER & ANDY LEWIS
02 Upfield - BILLY BRAGG
03 Forever Unmasked - NEW STREET ADVENTURE
04 Silver Lining - STIFF LITTLE FINGERS
05 Saint Mary's Steps (Up Tempo Version) - FIRE NEXT TIME
06 Lean On Me (incl The Return Of The Modern Soul Classic) - REDSKINS
07 Wake Up Boo! - THE BOO RADLEYS
08 Move on Up - THE JAM
 
Of course it's not new at all but ahh - come on........

ANDY PAWLAK In The Kitchen (1985) 30th Anniversary






Hi readers.
Today 30 years ago, the great ANDY PAWLAK recorded his wonderful, wonderful demos and we all would love to celebrate this day and say "Thank You!"
 
ANDY would like to add this:
"I remember doing the demos like it was yesterday,
they were recorded in my tiny kitchen in my bedsit in whitley bay.
I borrowed my mate Johns ghetto blaster and stood and recorded all the songs
live straight onto cassette.
no overdubs all live.
I suppose those demos pretty much changed my life really.
Not long after I signed to Chrysalis publishing and Phonogram Records.
great times and great memories.
I wish I could do the whole thing again.
All the best
Andy"

DOT DASH Earthquakes & Tidal Waves (2015)

 
 
It has been more that 2 years now that I wrote about DOT DASH the last time although they were quite productive in the meantime.
I simply didn't have the time. Sorry boys.
 
The recently released a new longplayer... - if you consider 30min approx "long"...
;-) But it's 30 minutes stuffed with 10 brilliant Indie-Punk-Pop-Songs.
I mentioned in earlier posts that they sound like BIFF BANG POW plus THE JAM to me and I have to add one other band - THE DARLING BUDS. Although the Buds used to have a female singer. Terry does not really sound like her but the way to sing is quite similar. And the band does actually sound like them - a bit...
 
DOT DASH offers a free download of the song "Rainclouds" on their website here.
 
 

To be honest... - I like the song but I simply LOVE "Satellite (far out)"
And if you would also like to check your favourite song, listen to the stream here.

Anyway... Support them!
