MUTINY FESTIVAL IN MAY

With the new MUTINY FESTIVAL offering up a stunning line-up of punk and ska, old and new, and supporting a very worthy cause, this could be one of the festivals of next year!

On 16th May 2009, the newly refurbished Bridlington Spa in East Yorkshire will be flooded with punk rockers for an all-dayer event (2pm – midnight) celebrating the strength of underground music. The impressive bill includes Stiff Little Fingers, Neville Staple (ex-The Specials), Anti-Nowhere League, UK Subs, Goldblade, Strawberry Blondes and Middle Finger Salute. There will also market stalls and children under 16 are welcome (with adult supervision). Tickets are priced at a very reasonable £30 for adults and £20 for under 16’s.

The festival fully supports The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and S.O.P.H.I.E. campaign (Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere). Sophie Lancaster was beaten to death by five youths in Bacup park for her goth image when she tried to stop them attacking her boyfriend Rob. Mutiny Festival is the chance to celebrate the punk scene and the entire punk/goth/alternative community – something Big Cheese is completely supportive of. See you at Mutiny Fest ’09!

MAGAZINE ANTHOLOGY

MAGAZINE
 An Anthology: 02.78 – 06.81
 
Re-mastered with singes & b-sides
 
 
Release date: 9 February 2009
 
To coincide with Magazine’s first UK tour since 1981, EMI is proud to announce the release of a definitive, double-anthology, CD retrospective of the band’s highly-influential career, including singles and b-sides.
 
Featuring songs from the band’s four studio albums – Real Life, Secondhand Daylight, The Correct Use Of Soap and Magic, Murder And The Weather – in chronological order, the anthology highlights the breadth of Magazine’s diversity and talent.  Founded in 1977 by former Buzzcock Howard Devoto, the band wilfully ignored the prevailing musical orthodoxy of the punk era, rejecting punk’s reductiveness for a musical template which incorporated keyboards and a textuality that had blinkered and faint-hearted critics crying out that prog rock had returned. Magazine were progressive, but their music was focused, concise: never an overblown showcase for musical virtuosity. Melody was never sacrificed. It says volumes for Magazine’s scope that they were lauding John Barry at a time when the world was seemingly trying to be The Clash or re-write The Ramones songbook.
 
As well as Devoto, the band featured the talents of Guitarist John McGeoch (who sadly passed away in 2004) – an inimitable stylist who later went on to join Siouxsie And The Banshees and Public Image Ltd; and bassist Barry Adamson who has carved out a notable solo career, in addition to working with Nick Cave. Magazine’s producers included John Leckie (The Stone Roses) and the legendary Martin Hannett. Devoto’s adroit choice of collaborators helped make Magazine unique.
 
The Anthology includes all the band’s singles and b-sides (listed below). The album artwork will be designed by Malcolm Garrett (Buzzcocks, Magazine, Simple Minds, Peter Gabriel, etc).

NEW RUBELLA BALLET

RUBELLA BALLET RELEASE NEW 24 TRACK CD ON OVERGROUND RECORDS
‘Anarchy In The U.V.’

Rubella Ballet formed in 1979 by Sid Ation (Flux of Pink Indians) on drums, however, the nucleus of the band came from the famous Crass gig where the Crass invited the audience to use their equipment and finish off the evening doing their own thing as they wanted and left the crowd in charge, so Sid got up on the drums and his girlfriend Zillah Minx grabbed a mic.

The band have become infamous for their different and innovative style of music and the shock value of wearing ultraviolet day-glo clothes to brighten up London’s east end, dark, violent, poor, ghettoized, drug dealing, working class shithole that they lived in into a different land as everywhere they went people smiled and laughed instead of wanting to kill them.

Rubella Ballet who are still fronted and managed by Zillah Minx who has, with all her friends around the world, created the whole Day-glo Death Rock punk scene.

Anarchy In The U.V. includes two unreleased tracks, their debut cassette tape Ballet Bag (1982) , the 4 track 7" EP Ballet Dance (1982), their debut album At Last Its Play Time (1985) and the 12” version of Money Talks (1985) all digitally remastered and packed in a 12-page booklet designed by Sid and Zillah.

Track Listing:
Napalm/ The Night Russia Died/ T/ Belfast/ A Dream Of Honey/ Newz/ Slant & Slide/ Me/ Krack Trak/ Blues/ Exit/ Ballet Dance/ Unemployed/ Something To Give/ Intro/ Love Life/ Tangled Web/ TV Scream/ Death Train/ See Saw/ Games Of Life/ Trial 13/ Twister/ Money Talks

MARKY RAMONE ON PHIL SPECTOR

Former Ramones drummerMarky Ramone has said that despite claims, producer Phil Spector didnt hold a gun to the band’s heads while they were making1980s’ ‘End Of The Century album’.

According to rumours Spector held the band hostage at gunpoint during fraught recording sessions. He told the NME though
"There were no guns pointed at anybody,"  "They [guns] were there but he had a license to carry.

"He never held us hostage. We could have left at any time. We had the keys.

In the video Marky Ramone also talked about the clash in political ideals he had with his bandmates, describing Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone as "fanatics".

He said, "I’m a Democrat, Joey was a Democrat. Johnny and Dee Dee were staunch, avid right wing conservative fanatics. Our political views were definitely different."
