THE GO-BETWEENS: THE STORY OF THE GRANT MCLENNAN BOOK CLUB

The Go Betweens | 24/10/14

Image: THE GO BETWEENS news image

There was a time where being a Go-Betweens fan meant to be part of an inadvertent secret club.  To establish with a new acquaintance that common connection was a social and musical shorthand to understanding one another, that you’d met a worthy conversant at the least but quite possibly a lifelong friend as well.  And it wasn’t willful elitism or snobbery: The Go-Betweens were "the secret" fans wanted to share with the world and continue to do so, even today.  And I can’t help but think that it was this spirit of sharing and mutual respect between the band and their fans that inspired “The Grant McLennan Book Club”.

How this came to pass was that Grant’s books had been collected and stored since his passing in 2006.  As we were getting into the thick of assembling G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One, Grant’s son, Nathan, approached and asked Robert Forster what he thought should be done with the books.   In a moment of inspiration, Robert wondered aloud how great it would be if we could actually share this collection with fans, like how you would give a good book to a friend after you’ve finished reading it, not necessarily worried about its return.

An idea was born and, with Nathan’s blessing and generosity, some 30-odd boxes began their journey from Queensland to the Domino warehouse in London. While there was no doubting Grant’s taste, we didn’t know what we were getting, to be honest.  Cracking opening the boxes, we were pleased to find a number of surprises.  Firstly, a good number of the books bore an inscription in the front pages, usually in the form of Grant’s signature along with the city and the date of the purchase.  And then of course was the books themselves, a wide array of hardback first edition novels, paperbacks, poetry books, biographies, art folios… 1800 in all.

So, the first 600 folks that have ordered G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One will be receiving one of these books, along with a bookmark signed by Robert Forster, ceremonially certifying the veracity of the books’ origins.  There will be a forum for folks to congregate at www.go-betweens.net, share their box number, the book received with their box, and as much detail on the book you care to share, like any good book club should.

Now, some of you that are paying closer attention have probably noticed that while the offering was only for the first six hundred orders, that suspiciously leaves another 1200 books unspoken for.  What’s the deal?  I suppose you’re going to have to wait and see what’s to come after Volume One.

PANDA BEAR ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'PANDA BEAR MEETS THE GRIM REAPER'; PRE-ORDER TODAY; WATCH VIDEO FOR 'MR NOAH'

Panda Bear | 22/10/14

Image: Panda Bear announce shot

Today, Domino and Panda Bear are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.ka. Panda Bear. Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, or PBVSGR, as the album has been referred to cryptically online over the past few months, will be out January 12th in the UK and January 13th in the United States via Domino.

Mr Noah, the album’s first single, comes to you today via the premiere of an AB/CD/CD directed video, VIEW HEREAlso available today is the Mr Noah EP, a 4-song standalone EP featuring the single, plus 3 new tracks that will not be on the forthcoming album. Stream or buy the EP today. The exclusive iTunes pre-order of the album will come with the EP as instant gratification tracks - link to follow.

 

Noah has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later (Doin’ It Right, from Random Access Memories), that’s more the case than ever.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.”

Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.

Recording for the album came together everywhere from El Paso, Texas, to a garage by the beach near his home in Lisbon, Portugal. In a relationship that already proved fruitful on Tomboy, Noah partnered again with Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember, this time in a more top-to-bottom production role.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper signifies a pivotal point for an artist who has proven he can continue to evolve while remaining at the top of his game. As Noah says, “It’s sort of marking change — not necessarily an absolute death, but the ending of something, and hopefully the beginning of something else.”

 

Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper will be available in Standard CD and 2xLP formats, and Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP formats. The Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP includes the 4-song Mr Noah EP in addition to the album in deluxe packaging. Exclusive bundles that include a limited edition T-shirt and lithograph are available via the Animal Collective webstore. All pre-orders come with an instant download of the Mr Noah EP.

ROYAL TRUX - POUND FOR POUND REISSUED ON DOMINO ON 1ST DECEMBER 2014

Royal Trux | 22/10/14

Image: Pound For Pound News

The final Royal Trux album to be released while they were still a live, touring entity, ‘Pound for Pound’ will be reissued by Domino on 1 December 2014.

In ‘98, Royal Trux had emerged from their Virgin contract buyout, proudly bearing the brand of SELL-OUT! tattooed on their forehead by the angry mini-hordes of indie rock. As always, out was in and the only direction was UP. 

The year is now 2000 —Y2K and all that jazz. Innarestin’ times! The next move for Royal Trux started by reconvening their Floridian rhythm section of Dan Brown and Chris Pyle, who’d been a part of the Virgin act. Together with Kenny Nasta (who’d come on later in the Virgin period and then stuck around), these guys formed a boogie-tastic base while Neil ramped up the riffing for a set of songs that explored southern rock mythos lick by lick. On top, Jennifer and Neil furthered the hip-hop-styled dual-vocal approach from ‘The Radio-Video EP’, with each of them fully loaded with a separate set of lyrics and melody; two trains on the same track with tight-ass, split-second timing. 

‘Pound for Pound’ plays like the follow-through to the two Virgin Records, but separated by four years and a flurry of other releases, just to keep you guessing. Knowing Royal Trux, this was the beginning of nothing — the next album was just as likely to slide into another direction — and as it transpired, ‘Pound for Pound’ was the last go-round for the muse and bliss of Royal Trux, both of which involved being wildly out of step with any movement, group or person that actually seemed to want them around. A far cry from the larval keenings of ‘Luminous Dolphin’ and ‘Cut You Loose’ — but in that, an invariably perfect bow.

Pound For Pound will be available on CD (WIG81CD) and vinyl (WIG81 LP).  Pre-order the album HERE.

BONNIE PRINCE BILLY SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE QUAIL AND DUMPLINGS

Bonnie Prince Billy | 15/10/14

Image: BPBQuailDumplings

The "Quail and Dumplings" single plays in the wake of Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's latest album which exists simultaneously as a new album, an alternate-reality version of Wolfroy Goes To Town and the concluding record of two separate perceived trilogies within the Prince's catalog. There is much on the table here, and "Quail and Dumplings" manages to balance contrasting perspectives within itself - one of great lack and wanting, and the other of a sense of greatness coming. This shifting tone is greatly enhanced by the fiddle of Billy Contreras and the remarkable voice of the well-travelled Caroline Peyton. The song alludes to travelers who may be unclear on when their next meal is coming, but are still determined to keep their positive outlook on the journey of life. And much like the song itself, the video for “Quail and Dumplings” operates with a set of conflicting perspectives! You’ll find Bonnie & friends’ frolicking through the “Quail and Dumplings” water park enjoying all that the day has to offer, but is all what it seems? The struggle between the balances of happiness and grief and its contrast become apparent during their day, but will the friends overcome it?

Always expect the unexpected with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy; and only His Grace can enhance the song’s shifting tone in such an uproarious fashion! The "Quail and Dumplings" video, directed by Ben Berman, has been called "the greatest video ever made" - watch and agree!

Quail and Dumplings will be available on 7" (RUG633) and as a 2 track Digital Bundle (RUG633D) backed with “Pull Your Eyes Out, Molly".

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will be playing the following dates:

18 November: St John’s, London, UK

19 November: St John’s, London, UK

20 November: AB, Brussels, Belgium

21 November: Le Guess Who Festival, Utrecht, Netherlands

The dates will include an extra night at London’s Union Chapel on 2nd February 2015; the 3rd February show is now sold out. These will be standard King Creosote shows (with no film screening). Tickets will go on sale this Thursday.

King Creosote has also been confirmed to play The Royal Concert Hall on Thursday 22nd January as part of Celtic Connections. As with the Milton Court shows, Kenny will be performing the music from ‘From Scotland With Love’ live to a screening of the film, this time augmented by a ten-piece band for what promises to be a very special night. This will also be the last chance for some time to see the film accompanied by a live performance.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday 16th October at 10am, except for Celtic Connections (which is on sale now) and Belfast (which is on sale on Friday). Full dates with ticket links are as follows:

From Scotland With Love, which critics described as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday), ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10) and ‘a beautiful thing, flitting between affecting, inspiring, amusing and enchanting’ (Time Out – 4* lead review), was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name. Featuring archive footage from the National Library of Scotland Scottish Screen Archive, but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives. The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date. From Scotland With Love is available now through Dom Mart, and iTunes, with an extended version available HERE.

Watch the videos for Something To Believe In’ and ‘For One Night Only’, featuring footage from the film ‘From Scotland With Love’.

G STANDS FOR GO-BETWEENS: VOLUME 1 1978-1984

The Go Betweens | 01/10/14

Image: Go Betweens press shot B&W

The Domino Recording Company is honoured to announce the upcoming release of an extraordinary anthology for one of the most beloved and influential Australian groups of all-time, The Go-BetweensG Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One extensively documents the band’s origins in an ambitious box containing four vinyl albums, four compact discs and an extensive 112-page book, featuring a trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, along with additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.

The box set captures the band’s output from 1978 through 1984 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of their first three studio albums in over thirty years (Send Me A Lullaby, Before Hollywood & Spring Hill Fair), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes. G Stands For Go-Betweens also brings together their early classic and collectible singles together on a fourth vinyl LP entitled The First Five Singles featuring new artwork from its creators. Additionally, the set comes with four compact discs of rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings, radio sessions and a complete live concert radio broadcast from 1982. If that’s not enough, the set comes with a silkscreen of their first promotional poster for their debut single, “Lee Remick", as well as a reproduction of their very first press release from their own Able Label.

For a complete tracklist and in-depth information on this release, please visit the following: http://dominorecordco.com/gobetweens/

We will begin taking pre-orders for this very special limited edition release today and will continue to do so until October 31st.  While a very small overrun may be made available to a few select retail outlets at a later date, this is a deluxe limited package and we will only be pressing this very special collection once.  The only way to guarantee your own copy is to order from Domino Mart HERE.  The stock is estimated to be delivered to customers at the beginning of January.

But here’s the special part: the first 600 orders will get a randomly selected book from the late Grant McLennan’s personal literary collection along with a specially-printed bookmark signed by Robert Forster, certifying their veracity. These books were collected by Grant through his lifetime and some were signed and dated by him on purchase (though no guarantee that every book will have said inscription...it will be the luck of the draw). Recipients will be invited to join the Grant McLennan Book Club over at www.go-betweens.net to share anecdotes and book reports on the copies they receive.

The Go-Betweens were formed by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan in Brisbane, Australia in 1978 while studying at the University of Queensland. The duo, augmented by various drummers and guests, recorded a series of acclaimed singles for seminal Australian labels such as their own Able Label and Missing Link. After a sojourn to London and Glasgow that led to their brief relationship with the legendary Postcard label, they were joined by their more permanent rhythmic counterpart, drummer Lindy Morrison, upon their return home prior to recording their debut album, Send Me A Lullaby. That release brought them to the attention of Rough Trade and a lengthy re-location to London. It was then the band recorded their breakthrough album, Before Hollywood. Produced by John Brand (Aztec Camera, The Waterboys), the album contains some of the group’s most beloved recordings, including McLennan’s “Cattle And Cane” and Forster’s “By Chance”. Shortly thereafter, McLennan would hand off bass playing duties to new member Robert Vickers, who joined the group prior to the recording of Spring Hill Fair.

During their initial phase, the group went on to record three additional albums for Beggars Banquet before splitting up in 1989 in spite of their greatest commercial success with the album 16 Lovers Lane. Forster and McLennan went on to extensive solo careers before reuniting in 2000 and making three more Go-Betweens album together, including the ARIA-winning finalé, Oceans Apart. Sadly, the reunion came to a sudden end when McLennan passed away on May 6th, 2006 from a heart attack and The Go-Betweens disbanded for good.

It would be hard to overstate the shadows cast across the musical landscape of the last three decades by the Go-Betweens’ self-ascribed “striped sunlight sound”. The duo of McLennan and Forster ranks alongside the best of the best songwriting partnerships, influencing younger musicians both expected (such as Belle & Sebastian who reference the group on “Shoot The Sexual Athlete”) and unexpected (as with the late, great Jay Reatard’s fiery cover of “Don’t Let Him Come Back”). This anthology is sure to provide inspiration to a new generation of musicians while providing a very special personal experience for the existing fans.

JON HOPKINS ASLEEP VERSIONS EP 10TH NOVEMBER 2014

Jon Hopkins | 25/09/14

Following a sold out, euphoric performance at The Royal Festival Hall last Friday, Jon Hopkins can announce the release of a 4 track EP, entitled Asleep Versions, on 10th November 2014.

Asleep Versions was recorded at Sundlaugin Studios, near Reykjavik, in February of this year. Intended to be heard as one single 25 minute piece, it is composed of four decelerated, dreamlike re-imaginings of tracks from the Mercury-nominated  

Immunity. Representing the quieter, more meditative side of the album, these new explorations take its hypnotic, transcendent qualities to a far deeper level. At times almost painfully beautiful, the EP contains a new, semi-acoustic re-interpretation of album track Form By Firelight, featuring additional vocals from the Braids and Blue Hawaii lead vocalist, Raphaelle Standell.

Watch an animated trailer for the EP, designed and directed by Robert Hunter.

 

Asleep Versions will be available on 12" (RUG622T), CD (RUG622CD) & Digital(RUG622D). The tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Immunity (with King Creosote)
  2. Form By Firelight (With Raphaelle Standell)
