THE COVENTRY AUTOMATICS AKA THE SPECIALS - Dawning Of A New Era LP
Zoom image
...

Back in 1978, THE COVENTRY AUTOMATICS headed into the studio to record some demos in an effort to secure a record deal. It didn’t happen, but within months the band had renamed themselves THE SPECIALS and set up their own label called 2 TONE and a movement was born and the rest is history!

“DAWNING OF A NEW ERA” is a fascinating collection of demos, now officially re-released for the 40th anniversary of the recordings, and making the tracks officially available on vinyl for the first time in over 2 decades! Of the 13 songs which appear on the release only Wake Up, Look But Don't Touch and Jay Walker failed to make it on to any official release and were dropped from the bands live set early in their career. The remainder of the tracks offer embryonic versions of tracks which make up the bulk of the bands first album. Rock and Roll Nightmare would later appear on the bands More Specials under the name Pearls Cafe abet with slightly different lyrics. The track Raquel appeared on the b-side of the Dutch Concrete Jungle single and later was released in session version as part of the BBC Radio Sessions album.

These recordings are must owns for any SPECIALS fan or indeed anyone with a love of the 2Tone/Ska scene

Released on BOSS TUNEAGE's FREE RANGE PRODUCT imprint. Random Mix Colour Vinyl.

MORROW - Covenant Of Teeth LP

Brooding, dark and sombre melodic crust in the vein of Ictus and Fall of Efrafa, vast resonant guitars and cello over thundering D-beat, invoking mythologies of remnant cultures amongst the ruins of our civilisation, the earthen liturgy of forests and ice scapes. Morrow are a collective of friends from all over the world, and features guest vocals from members of Masakari, Monachus, Wildspeaker, Archivist and Anopheli

FALL OF EFRAFA - Owsla LP

FALL OF EFRAFA - Owsla LP

Fall of Efrafa´s first strike from 2006 and their most essential stuff so far.- "Fall of Efrafa are a cello driven epic crust band from Brighton, UK. Musically their style is reminscent of Remains of the Day, Wolfbrigade, Madame Germen. They base some of their lyrics on the mythological and political overtones in the book "Watership Down" by Richard Adams. This is the first installment in a trilogy of records."

FREEDOOM - Doomed Condition LP

FREEDOOM - Doomed Condition LP

Finally out the debut full-lenght of this great brutal crustcore powertrio from Portugal. Think of a nuclear mix of Wolfbrigade and State of Fear with some dissonance and dark melodies here and there. Definitely one of the best d-beat album released in recent years! "... So this one's for the punx out of this filthy mess, our doomed condition is for the punx like us"
