Streetwalkers

I'm Walking, Complete Streetwalkers 1974-77 (15cd box set pre-order)


Following on from its award winning Family box set Once Upon A Time, Madfish has created a new box of wonder guaranteed to reinvigorate the reputation of one of the 1970s most underrated and ageless Rock bands.

I'm Walking, Complete Streetwalkers 1974-77 is a gloriously packaged 15 CD collection of Streetwalkers entire catalogue.

Formed from the ashes of Family and featuring the fertile combination of Roger Chapman's and Charlie Whitney's songwriting, Streetwalkers produced 5 albums with 3 different line-ups in just under 3 years. Ditching the quirky subtlety of Family, Streetwalkers aimed for the mainstream with a funky, hard rocking style that acted as an ideal backdrop for Roger Chapman's unique voice and eclectic lyrics, Charlie Whitney's innovative blues-inflected guitar style, and the soulful contributions of guitarist/vocalist Bobby Tench.

Containing 15 CDs, including 2 replica CD singles with non-album b-sides, a certificate signed by Roger Chapman and Bobby Tench, and a 92 page coffee table book with rare and unseen pictures and memorabilia, I'm Walking is a beautifully presented testament to a fondly remembered band.

Pre-order for December 11th release.

Soft Machine

Man In A Deaf Corner (cd pre-order)


Man in a Deaf Corner is a double cd uncovering the deepest inner workings of Canterbury's prog-jazz heroes and was compiled by Brian Hopper.

Originally released in 2001, the album has been out of print for many years.

Caught on low-fidelity reel-to-reel, CD1's 1963 material has more in common with the Spontaneous Music Ensemble than any kind of Psychedelia, with Robert Wyatt's parents providing a home for the anarchy of their son's and his cohorts Mike Ratledge, Daevid Allen and Hugh and Brian Hopper 'Jazz noise'. The end of CD1 is devoted to the official post-1967 Soft Machine, featuring Allen and bassist Kevin Ayers, while CD2 contains live recordings from 1969 and 1970 and a one off re-recording of Softs classic As Long As He Lies Perfectly Still featuring Jakko Jaksyk, Dave Stewart, Clive Brooks and Hugh Hopper.

Pre-order for 30th October release.

This 2013 re-release has been remastered and includes a studio track especially recorded for the reissue, along with two studio tracks that featured on the original 1997 CD release.
