            Stanley Chow - Exclusive A3 Art Print

              When we first moved to the Northern Quarter, we asked our friend and budding graphic designer Stan to design some flyers and t-shirts for us. Needless to say, he promptly legged it over from his 'office' in Night & Day with some ideas, and they went down a storm.

              We've both come a long way since those heady days of the late '90's and to celebrate 25 years of us being here in the NQ, he's come up with an exclusive t-shirt, tote bag and art print for us.

              We're only doing limited runs of all of these, so don't snooze on them!

              This print is A3 size.

                What Am I Without You - Music Box

                  ‘What Am I Without You’ is the closing track on elbow’s ninth studio album; ‘Flying Dream 1’. The album was recorded at The Theatre Royal in Brighton in 2021, while closed due to the pandemic. Uncut called it "gorgeously somnambulant, yet softly romantic”, mojo cited “the subtle complexity of the music” and the observer noted it’s “softly articulated warmth and empathy" - drawing comparisons with talk talk's legendary ‘laughing stock'.

                  Raising money for Mat from Vibes Records' recovery fund Elbow are donating their share of proceeds from this music box to help facilitate the ongoing therapy for their good friend Mat Andrew, the former owner of Vibes Records in Bury. We will also be donating our share of the proceeds to the fund.

                    Released in 2007, Hawley said the LP was about “leaving the past behind” and was named after another landmark location in his hometown of Sheffield. The Guardian called the record “beautiful, moving pop at its best" and it was lauded by the NME as “an album that has moments that won't be bettered this year or any other.” with BBC Music adding that it “furthers his cause in becoming a proper national treasure".

                        ‘Marz’ is the second song from John Grant’s debut solo album ‘Queen Of Denmark’ which was heralded as an “Instant Classic” by Mojo Magazine and went on to be selected as their choice for Best Album of 2010.

                        Recorded in Texas in collaboration with members of Midlake and released on seminal UK label Bella Union, the BBC described it as "one of the most deeply satisfying debut albums of recent times" with The Guardian citing “songs of impossible love recalling Dennis Wilson's masterpiece, ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’."

                        This Official Music Box Co version of this bittersweet classic is an evocative echo of the gold-dust in the original track. So why not go to where the green rivers flow and…

                          Reprise - Music Box

                            The penultimate song of Doves’ debut long player ‘Lost Souls’, 'Reprise' revisits the guitar figure from other album track ‘The Man Who Told Everything'.

                            Released in the year 2000 on the Heavenly record label, the Mercury Music Prize nominated album that Manchester icon Johnny Marr called "a vast 3am melancholic beauty brought to life" went on to gain Top 20 status in the UK and was described by the NME as "the first great album to come from Manchester since ‘Definitely Maybe’...”

                            This Official Music Box version of this instrumental classic is a haunting coda to the beauty of the original Doves track.

                                              Salad Days: A Decade Of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90)

                                                “Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90)” examines the early DIY punk scene in the Nation’s Capital.

                                                It was a decade when seminal bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Government Issue, Scream, Void, Faith, Rites of Spring, Marginal Man, Fugazi, and others released their own records and booked their own shows-without major record label constraints or mainstream media scrutiny. Contextually, it was a cultural watershed that predated the alternative music explosion of the 1990s (and the industry’s subsequent implosion).

                                                Thirty years later, DC’s original DIY punk spirit serves as a reminder of the hopefulness of youth, the power of community and the strength of conviction.

                                                ”Fascinating insight into the influential Washington DC hardcore punk scene.” Teamrock

                                                ”Salad Days looks to be making a late bid to be the year’s best music doc” The Guardian

                                                ”...Salad Days not only acts as a musical primer but as a monument to a moment: when punk was both a way to find kinship with like-minded oddballs and a tool for fighting issues like racism and economic disparity.” Rolling Stone

                                                ”Provides a solid, borderline exhaustive survey of the Washington, D.C., hardcore punk scene of the 1980s -- possibly the nation’s most influential such milieu.”Variety

                                                Continuous Music : Selected Works

                                                  Erased Tapes presents Continuous Music: Selected Works, the first printed collection of scores from prolific pianist and Continuous Music pioneer Lubomyr Melnyk, making his unique technique available to piano lovers all around the world. This first volume contains selections from each of Melnyk’s releases on Erased Tapes, including Corollaries (2013), Evertina (2014), Rivers and Streams (2015) and a very special handwritten score of Pockets of Light, serving as an entry point to his technique. Continuous Music Selected Works also contains a previously unreleased score, The Moving Window, plus detailed notes from the composer himself. Every copy comes with audio recordings of all six pieces including a new version of Butterfly, specially recorded for the reader. Melnyk’s mission with this sheet music book is for musicians and piano enthusiasts to gain a greater love and understanding of the instrument, while being inspired to delve further into the world of Continuous Music.

                                                  “This music offers you a new dimension of your own self that you did not know existed … a delightful place where you feel the total freedom of the music opening up before you, a vast open plain where you can sail and frolic freely anywhere you wish to go … Your ship is awaiting you, and the sea is endless and at peace … there are no dangers, and no reefs to shatter your journey … only the open, endless water for your discovery.” Only Parasol and Pockets Of Light are what Melnyk calls “pure” Continuous Music. The other four works are in a standard notation format and include Evertina, Awaiting, a hybrid of Butterfly — a mixture of both regular and Continuous Piano — and The Moving Window, containing elements of both worlds. Since Continuous Music is very different to standard piano music, it has been challenging to present it in a readable and playable notation as there are simply too many notes. Instead, Melnyk developed a new method of notation that can give a clear and immediate impression of the piece; “a notation that lets the music live in your fingers, a notation that offers you Freedom instead of Conformity!

                                                  “ Although his scores might look daunting at first — some pages are reminiscent of the avant-garde notation of composers like John Cage, Cornelius Cardew or George Crumb — these pieces offer the pianist a great degree of freedom to formulate their own personal vision of the moment they are playing. A particular kind of improvisation is a key part of performing this music and a technique that Lubomyr uses himself. Melnyk’s scores therefore are a unique combination of traditional notation, text and the occasional use of slightly more avant-garde symbology. Importantly, the written scores of Lubomyr are a fascinating insight into his mind, character and personality. “Do not be dismayed by any difficulties you might face in learning these pieces! It is more important that you use these notations to help you generate a living piece of music, rather than playing every note on the page…As the (in)famous pirate Jack Sparrow once said: “They are more a ‘guideline’ … than a ‘Book of Rules” — Lubomyr Melnyk.

                                                          Starting out in the commercial sector, Ian Armer has written corporate scripts and had work published in film music magazine Music from the Movies and The Film & TV Yearbook before working on his own short films. Ian worked with the BBC, Shoreline Films and Pure Television before developing his own style and he’s since been a regular contributor to The Illustrated Ape – his work appearing alongside Maximo Park’s Paul Smith and Radiohead’s Stanley Donwood. Funding from the UK Film Council enabled him to shoot cult short The Clenched Tw*t of Notre Dame, which was nominated for an award at Manchester’s Commonwealth Film Festival. Ian’s films have screened at various UK festivals and his roles have included director, writer and editor, plus he’s been a guest programmer at Kino’s International Film Festival. In 2010 Ian co-wrote a short script with Amanda Webster – Cherry Lips & Liquorice Whips – which was due to be directed by Ken Russell, who passed away before the project reached fruition. Ian continues to write and direct and his first novella Mad Gods and Englishmen has since been published to great acclaim. More recently, he’s been commissioned to direct a series of art installations by experimental artists. He also co-wrote the feature film “Introspectum Motel” .
