        That Petrol Emotion

        Every Beginning Has A Future: An Anthology 1984-1994

          Originally a Northern Irish, London based quintet with an American singer, the band got together following the demise of Top 40 hitmakers and John Peel favourites The Undertones, their name inspired by the title of a song by another Derry outfit, Bam Bam & The Calling. Too late for Punk, too early for Grunge, That Petrol Emotion's output merged well-written melodic tunes with political statement. Sleeve artwork became informative newsletters. Singles and albums received rapturous reviews, gigs were sold-out joyous affairs. Later recordings bought in elements of hip-hop and Celtic folk. The band were always difficult to categorise and impossible to load onto a bandwagon, although no one could accuse the band of dabbling. As this collection shows, across the course of their ten years together, the quality of their songwriting never let up.

          “Their music is in a constant, latently violent, state of flux, sometimes overloaded, sometimes taut and splintered: a different kind of tension. For That Petrol Emotion, pop music is certainly not enough...They want to burn, to beat out a music that redefines itself, extends the boundaries.” Sean O’Hagan, NME, 1986 The choice of the word 'burn' in Sean O'Hagan's piece for the NME is a common theme in articles about That Petrol Emotion. Words like 'incendiary' and 'subversive' were often bandied about, although that key phrase 'pop music' is equally if not more important.

          And it has been said you can judge a band by their choice of cover versions - within these seven discs are the band's take on songs by Captain Beefheart, Pere Ubu, War, Hamilton Bohannon, Can, Neil Young, The Beatles, The Membranes, Leonard Cohen and Iggy Pop. Perhaps the most extraordinary fact about That Petrol Emotion is no one has seen fit to compile all or some of their works - that is until now. With full co-operation from the band, this comprehensive 121 track 7 CD collection brings together all five of their studio albums plus a typically energy-packed live recording from May 1994. It celebrates a body of work that has stood the test of time and - all these years later - undoubtedly still deserves a wider audience.

          Bernard Butler

          People Move On - Deluxe 4CD Media Book Edition

            In 1994 Bernard Butler left Suede at the end of the lengthy recording sessions for the band’s second album, the acknowledged classic that is “Dog Man Star”, which he cowrote. His first project was to join forces with singer David McAlmont record the album “The Sound Of McAlmont & Butler”, which was released in November 1995. It featured the Top 10 single “Yes” and the follow-up “You Do”.

            In 1997, Alan McGee signed Bernard up to Creation Records, and he set about recording his first solo album, playing all the instruments himself, except for the drums and strings. Released in April 1998, the album was a critical and commercial success, reaching # 11 in the UK album charts and features the hit singles “Stay”, “Not Alone” and “Change Of Heart”.

            When approached about contributing to this reissue in 2021, Bernard decided that he wanted to re-record all the vocals, for both the album and the B-sides. He has also added the occasional guitar overdub. The new vocals can be found on CD2 and 3. CD4 features some gems from Bernard’s own archives: demos, a rehearsal, solo live tracks, and a selection of fascinating outtakes from the string sessions.

            The 28 page book is extensively annotated by Bernard himself, and also contains all the lyrics plus photos from Bernard’s own collection plus unpublished recording session photos from photographer Jill Furmanovsky.

            The Creation

            Creation Theory

              Alan McGee was such a big fan of The Creation that he named his record label after the band, and named his own band after one of their songs – Biff Bang Pow. The Creation was formed in 1966 from beat combo The Mark Four, and was quickly signed to a production deal with Shel Talmy, The Who’s producer.

              The first release was the urgent “Making Time”, which featured guitarist Eddie Phillips playing his guitar with a violin bow, two years before Jimmy Page started doing so. Whilst very popular in Germany, UK success largely eluded the band, and after a number of non-charting singles and line-up changes (including Ron Wood), the band broke up in 1968 without ever having released an album.

              Phillips and lead vocalist Kenny Pickett recorded an album in 1987 that remained unreleased until 2004, and in 1995, following reunion concerts at Harlesden’s Mean Fiddler, Alan McGee and Joe Foster managed to persuade the original line-up to record a new album, for release on Creation Records.

              Compiled with the assistance of Eddie Phillips himself, this limited edition deluxe media book presents a chronological history of the band. The four CDs include all eight single sides by The Mark Four (and three live reunion recordings from 1985), all of The Creation’s legendary recordings for Shel Talmy, in both mono and brand new stereo mixes, the 1987 album and the Creation Records album, and some solo recordings by Eddie from 1990 and 2011.

              The DVD features a lengthy new interview with Eddie, filmed in October 2016, five songs from The Creation’s two live appearances on the legendary German 60s TV show “Beat Beat Beat” (from the original tapes, three songs appear on DVD for the first time), and 21 songs from the band’s two reunion concerts at the Mean Fiddler in the 90s.

              Martin Carthy With Dave Swarbrick


                Two giants of the English folk scene with a canny selection of tracks from their early years together. Carthy has never been better than on "Lucy Wan", "Davy Lowston" and the equally haunting "Long Lankin" all songs dripping in blood and death. The understanding between the two players is there for all to see and the intervening years has simply enhanced these tracks.
