    ‘Freaky Dancin’ / The Egg’ appears on translucent orange vinyl in sleeve with 3mm spine.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Andy says: Happy Mondays lit up the late 80s with their barely contained, shambolic but groovey take on punk-funk and god knows what else! They were, in short, totally original. In frontman Shaun Ryder they had a complete one-off who label boss Tony Wilson famously compared to W.B.Yeats! These early twelves (85-88) are presented here as four different coloured vinyl, remastered from the original analogue tapes and housed in a 300 gram carton slipcase.

    Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida Black Kids comprise of brother and sister Reggie and Ali Youngblood, Dawn Watley, Owen Holmes and Kevin Snow. Produced by Bernard Butler at West Heath studios, London over five weeks this spring, "Partie Traumatic" comprises of ten exquisitely refreshing pop songs including the singles "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You" and "Hurricane Jane". Other highlights include the recently penned "I'm Making Eyes At You" and album closer "Look At Me (When I Rock Wichoo)".
