When It’s All Over We Still Have To Clear Up - 2022 Reissue

    In celebration of the 21st Anniversary of Snow Patrol’s second album, they are releasing the vinyl LP When It’s All Over We Still Have To Clear Up, now with the original artwork for the first time. Originally released on 12th March 2001 on CD only, a limited edition was finally released on vinyl format in 2019 with adapted artwork. Now, it is being made available with the original artwork.

    The second album by Snow Patrol was written and recorded by the three original members: Gary Lightbody, Mark McClelland and Jonny Quinn and also features members of Belle and Sebastian on some tracks. The singles released from the album at the time were ‘Ask Me How I Am’ and ‘One Night Is Not Enough’ but the star track from the album ended up being ‘An Olive Grove Facing The Sea’ which was favoured and supported on radio by both Zane Lowe and Colin Murray.

    The album was a follow up to their critically acclaimed debut ‘Songs For Polarbears’ released in 1998. It was recorded in November 2000 at Substation in Cowdenbeath, Fife, Scotland with Michael Brennan Jr as producer.

    If You're Feeling Sinister (25th Anniversary Edition) - Black Friday Edition

      In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of this seminal album, Belle & Sebastian release If You’re Feeling Sinister on coloured vinyl for the first time. 

      The album was recorded in Glasgow at CaVa Studios in August 1996 over just 10 days and was the first album released by Jeepster. There were no singles released from the album which was a famous Belle & Sebastian trait of the time. In line with this, there were also no interviews given and promotion involved a three gig tour over London, Manchester and Glasgow.

      For the recording of this album, the band consisted of the six original members but this time also included Sarah Martin as the seventh member in her debut for the band. This was the second album released by Belle & Sebastian and all songs were written by Stuart Murdoch.

      The session produced 11 songs of which 10 made it to the album and the other became the single ‘This Is Just A Modern Rock Song’. Although there were no videos made for any of the album tracks, Sarah Martin recorded a video for this eleventh track.

      The album cover features Ciara MacLaverty, a great friend of Stuart’s, beside a copy of Franz Kafka’s ‘The Trial’. The inside cover features some members of the band with friends in their impression of The Last Supper.

      It's A Cool, Cool Christmas

        In celebration of the 21st Anniversary of this popular Christmas double album, Jeepster and War Child are releasing It’s A Cool Cool Christmas on vinyl for the first time.

        Originally released on November 20th 2000 as a CD only release, it will now be available on vinyl on November 19th 2021.

        This double album is released with colourful inners within a wide spine sleeve. This collection of songs is the definitive indie Christmas album and includes contributions from a broad spectrum of indie giants, with songs ranging from traditional standards to originals written specially for this collection. This compilation contains both ballads and songs to pogo around the Christmas tree to in equal measure and coincidentally is a compilation of twenty-one songs re-released after twenty-one years.

        The highlights are Low’s much-loved ‘Just Like Christmas’, The Flaming Lips and their ‘White Christmas (demo for Tom Waits)’, the Grandaddy track which is both wistful and amusing and Eels’ ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas’. In fact there is not a second-rate filler on this album and there’s even a track from Lauren Laverne recorded before she became a famous DJ. The original intention of creating this album was to raise money for a worthy charity. War Child is an amazing organisation that protects, educates and helps children get over the terrible traumas they’ve suffered from war. The work done in their programmes has alife-saving impact on children and their families in some of the most dangerous places on earth.

        The Boy With The Arab Strap

          After 1997's "If You're Feeling Sinister" made them critics' darlings, Scottish octet Belle And Sebastian ran straight into a series of label woes, and into the inevitable feeding frenzy that surrounds a free agent with their prodigious talents. Their experience with one label exec is detailed in "Seymour Stein" on "The Boy With The Arab Strap", which finds theband building on the pastoral pop charms of "Sinister...", adding a palpable layer of anger and an increasingly rich sonic palette to their painfully shy tales of despair.

          Near-overnight success taught the band a lot. This album moves from their trademark confessional diary sketches (still in abundance, as on the disarmingly naive "Is It Wicked Not To Care", and the tender "Rollercoaster Ride") to genuine social criticism, as on the title track, a narrative meditation on Britain's pretensions and societal ills. "Chickfactor" pulls apart the banality the band encountered on arrival in New York, an experience which only served to deepen the bashful anger that makes Belle and Sebastian so endearing.

            Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant

              For their fourth and most cleverly titled album, Glasgow's fey folk-popsters Belle & Sebastian have constructed another11 songs that at times reach into new musical and lyrical areas. Following secondary composer Stuart David's departure, de facto leader Stuart Murdoch divides the songwriting chores among the other members; yet what's apparent is the single-mindedness of Belle & Sebastian's song focus.

              The overall mood is even softer and more precious (if that can be believed) than their previous efforts. Murdoch and Chris Geddes' "Don't Leave The Light On Baby" is the band's attempt at a '70s soul ballad, a Wurlitzer adding a Music-of-My-Mind vibe to a lovers' dissertation. Isobel Campbell's "Beyond The Sunrise" is biblical Celtic-prog-folk, all flutes and acoustic guitar, while Jackson's own "The Wrong Girl" is an upbeat, country-ish lament with typically soulful Belle & Sebastian strings and trumpet giving the song an understated melodic kick. Of course, Murdoch contributes a classic or two - "I Fought a War" is a gentle away-at-the-battlefield tale imbued with the greatest sense of dread Murdoch's ever given a song. And "Woman's Realm" is the kind of pop stomper "Arab Strap" was packed to the gills with, highlighted here by its increasingly quiet surroundings.
