Beachy Head - Repress

    Beachy Head Is The New Project From Christian Savill (Slowdive) With Help From Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Matt Duckworth (Flaming Lips) , Steve Clarke (The Soft Cavalry) And Label Owner Ryan Graveface.

    In 2019 Christian Savill found himself alone and with a year off from playing guitar for his grown up band Slowdive. He started writing and demoing songs with no particular plan. From 2001 he had recorded with longtime friend and collaborator Sean Hewson as Monster Movie releasing several albums on Graveface Records. These new ideas felt different in that they’re more personal and honest.

    Christian sent these sketches to good friends and multi instrumentalists, Ryan Graveface (Dreamend / The Casket Girls) and Steve Clarke (The Soft Cavalry) and Beachy Head was formed. Ryan and Christian put flesh on the bones in Savannah just before Covid struck. Matt Duckworth (Flaming Lips) added drums. In between lockdowns back in the UK Steve added harmonies and other instrumentation. The final touch of recording was Rachel Goswell (Slowdive / Mojave 3 / The Soft Cavalry / Minor Victories) contributing vocals on a few songs.

    Beachy Head is a chalk cliff in Sussex. It’s one of Britain’s most popular beauty spots...

    Skeletal Family

    The Singles Plus 1983-1985

      Spanning 4 sides of vinyl you'll hear one of the finest death rock/goth/new wave bands of all time with songs from EPs/12"s/demos from 1983-1985. It's a release not to miss.

      Formed in Keighley, West Yorkshire, during the Post Punk of early 1980’s out of the band ‘The Elements”, took their name from the title of the song “Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family” from the 1974 David Bowie album, Diamond Dogs.

      Something unique was brewing up a dark and broody storm in West Yorkshire at the time with bands like The Sisters Of Mercy, The March Violets, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Southern Death Cult (later became The Cult) forming the basis of what became the soundtracks to the Goth Subculture.
      Skeletal Family soon gained popularity in the UK Independent Charts and furiously gigged the length and breadth of the UK and Europe, recorded tracks for the John Peels Sessions, supported The Sisters of Mercy during their 1984 Black October tour, released 2 studio albums ‘Burning Oil’ (1984) and ‘Futile Combat’ (1985) of which saw the release of Skeletal Family’s most successful single ‘Promised Land’ on Red Rhino record label.
      Anne-Marie left Skeletal Family in 1985 to form Ghost Dance with Gary Marx, former guitarist of The Sisters Of Mercy.

      Hospital Ships

      Oh Ramona

        Hospital Ships founder and sole member Jordan Geiger has a long, varied indie-rock resume, with stints as the trumpeter in Shearwater and the chief songwriter of Minus Story. On his first album as a solo artist, Oh, Ramona, Geiger showcases his artistic progress while displaying remarkable tenderness. His concisely drawn songs get fleshed out in these weepy bedroom recordings, rendered with more than just crackly, near-whispered vocals and gentle strums on an acoustic guitar.

        Oh, Ramona's title track unfurls slowly over the course of a sublime three minutes, buttressed by layered instrumentation and a flair for the experimental that recalls The Flaming Lips. (Geiger named Hospital Ships after a song on that band's 1995 album Clouds Taste Metallic.) Before "Oh, Ramona" is over, Geiger has even unveiled a swell of horns to go with his oscillating chord progressions.

        Inevitably, Geiger has earned comparisons to Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, thanks to their shared Midwestern roots and emotive lyrics. But with Oberst coming of age musically, Hospital Ships' makes an ideal heir apparent: Oh, Ramona is rooted firmly in Geiger's "not a boy, not yet a man" phase. Fortunately, Geiger doesn't take himself nearly as seriously. The real-life Ramona in "Oh, Ramona"? The singer's cat.
