Artists

Hailing from Southend, home to Eddie and the Hot Rods, Dr Feelgood and the Kursaal Flyers, Tonight were a UK band that surfed the New Wave and hit the heights in 1978 with their first single "Drummer Man", which reached No 14 in the UK charts. They were the first band to be labelled as "Power Pop".

Michael Nesmith, famously ex Monkee, recorded a number of solo albums ranging across a range of styles, covering country rock, country, rock, soft rock, brass band(!) and all points in between.

In the early 1960's this pioneer of Rockabilly and Rock'n'Roll recorded cracking new versions of some of his classic hits.  Available recordings include  versions of his biggest hits "Be Bop A Lula" and "Pistol Packin' Mama".

"Andromeda's sole album [from 1969] was heavy guitar psychedelia that leaned far more toward the lurking hard rock, progressive, and occasionally metal movements than it did toward more pop- and song-oriented psych."

Electronic pioneers, their first single "Lawnchairs", which they released in 1980 on their own Design label, became the first independent single to crack the US Billboard Top 40 and went on to sell over one million copies worldwide.

The vehicle for the maverick brothers Ron and Russell Mael, Sparks have ploughed their own musical furrow for over thirty years.

Always innovative and interesting, these tracks are from their much lauded 1994 album 'Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins'.

Part of the late 1970's Canterbury folk scene, "Fiddler's Dram" leapt to prominence with their Christmas 1979 smash "Day Trip To Bangor (Didn't We Have A Lovely Time)".  An offshoot of the Oyster Band, they made two albums, "To See The Play" (1978) and "Fiddler's Dram" (1980).

 

Mouse released their one and only album "Lady Killer" in 1973, which is now considered something of a prog rock classic. 

"Led by Ray Russell, Mouse presents an album of progressive rock that is sought-after for a good number of reasons. His soaring acid guitar reigns supreme... (and) given that all other tracks are ... at best marvellous, it's easy to see why progressive collectors consider this album a must." - Tapestry of Delights

 

The song writing/production team of Chris Arnold, David Martin and Geoff Morrow has written some classic tracks over the years including "Can't Smile Without You" for Barry Manilow as well as songs for artists such as Billy Fury, Cliff Richard, Cilla Black, Edison Lighthouse and Elvis Presley.

In 1970 they turned their hands to recording, formed the band Butterscotch and immediately had a UK Top 20 hit single with ""Don't You Know". The album "Don't You Know It's Butterscotch" includes 7 additional tracks that were originally only released as singles.

 

Maggie Bell was the doyenne of 70's blues rock singers and was renowned for her gutsy, heartfelt vocals.  Her two 70's studio solo albums, her album with "Midnight Flyer", two live solo albums and a "Stone The Crows" live album are all available for license.
