Play Dead

The Collection

    PLAY DEAD release a career-spanning anthology, a CD digipak with sixteen of their most essential tracks plus a ten-track limited-edition blue vinyl LP (Inner bag with unseen photos and notes by Adi Vine)

    Between 1980-1985 they grew into one of the UK’s leading post-punk bands with regular indie chart hits and a large loyal live following. They built up through exposure from three John Peel sessions, extensive gigging (with UK Decay, Sex Gang Children, Killing Joke, The Cult and more), subsequently headlining UK and EU tours in their own right and landing a live spot on the UK’s top music TV programme, The Tube.

    The March Violets

    Play Loud Play Purple: The Complete Singles 1982-1985 & More

      The Complete Singles 1982 – 85 & More.

      Includes indie chart-toppers Snake Dance, Deep and Walk into the Sun 7” versions (the first time the Deep and Walk into the Sun 7” are available since the 80’s).

      22 tracks – all their ‘80’s repertoire, plus 3 highlights from this century.
      From Leeds, label-mates of Sisters of Mercy, they issued six singles & a compilation.

      The March Violets came out of Leeds in the early 80’s, label-mates of Sisters of Mercy. Releasing six singles, they were a constant presence in the UK indie charts, hitting the top two with Snake Dance and Deep and no. 1 with Walk into The Sun. They never got around to recording an album – their only '80's long-players, Natural History in the UK and Electric Shades in the USA, were compilations. Eventually they signed to a major label and were groomed for a USA breakthrough, performing in the 1987 Some Kind of Wonderful movie. However they were asked to make too many compromises and split up.

      Here is their entire 1980’s independent catalogue compiled in the original versions, together with three tracks from this century. It chronicles their development with lead singers Simon Denbigh, Rosie Garland and Cleo Murray, backed by bassist Lawrence Elliot and guitarist Tom Ashton.

Fronted by English exile slap-bassist and vocalist Oliver Baroni and Italian/Swiss songstress Emanuela Hutter, immaculately backed by English guitarist Duncan James and Swiss drummer Luke ‘The Puke’ Weyerman, they unashamedly celebrate their retro rock and pop roots.
