Search: Marine Girls (oh yes), early Alien Sex Fiend (okay, it's
Anagram, but it's part of the whole semi-psuedo-empire) and indeed
both Felt and Momus. And Eyeless in Gaza, so ha.
Destroy: no names come immediately to mind, probably because I've

Search: McCarthy, the Monochrome Set, and Blind Mr. Jones.
Destroy: Stan, Mexico 70.
Random associations: (a) Aren't the also responsible for some stuff
like the Not Sensibles and some Spizz project or other? (b) What's
the name of that second-string Slowdive-y shoegazer band that showed
up on so many of their comps? (c) I'm just now trying to make up my
mind about Louis Phillipe.

(And yeah, I knew someone would say that about Blind Mr.
Jones. But they seemed more sub-Ride than sub-Slowdive.)
I would say Destroy: Football per se, but apart from Will Self I
don't think I'd get much sympathy.

Two full albums? One EP would be more than enough. Single-sided at
Eyeless in Gaza!

Destroy: BEN BLOODY WATT! That's what. Also Eyeless In Gaza
(had one good song though) and virtually everyone on the
hippie's charter Pillows And Prayers.
Search: Pigs On Purpose and Urban Ospreys, the othe two
Nightingales records you need on Cherry Red. Did I mention

Did anyone hear the Mr Swenson record 'The Sensuous Man' I put out on
my Analog Baroque imprint of Cherry Red? That was lyrically and
sonically perhaps the most extreme record ever made.
And I want to know your impressions of my friend Louis Philippe,
Nitsuh. He's extremely intelligent and talented, some of his records
take the Beach Boys' Chamber Pop formula into realms we might call
'exquisite', yet there's something -- hmm, what's the word? Unctuous?
Fustian? -- about them. He comes on like the pop equivalent of a wine
snob. And what does it mean when a Frenchman buys into the mythology
of England more than the English themselves do? What values are

Crabby, entertaining bastards. Very much a compliment. Friend Brian
met Mick at Terrastock 2 and thought him rather Scottish.

On a slightly related tack, anyone remember Yeah Yeah Noh? (Yes, I
know they weren't on Cherry Red!) I was surprised to see that there's
a CD compilation of their stuff available now. I saw it in Sister
Ray. I do't have title, label etc details, but no doubt this info is
out there somewhere. Cue DJ Martian!
Destroy - all Marine Girls, Tracey Thorn, Ben Watt.

Big ass playlist with lots of Cherry Red artists if you're interested.

Cherry Red has taken over from Rhino as the ultimate compilers. Their C86-C89 3CD sets are great and they just put out "1977: The Year That Punk Broke" which highlights all sorts of gems from that year. Anyone know if they're planning on continuing the yearly overviews?

THey seem to be an umbrella group that has a few really good reissue labels under it. Got Esoteric, Grapefruit, and about 5 others, possibly more. Grapefruit have been doing some great psych and prog 3cds for the last few years.
