IAN BROWN 'Stellify' [Release Date 21/09/2009]
Ltd 7": Stel´li`fy: to change or be changed into a star [from Latin stella, a star] Ian Brown – NME Godlike Genius, Q Legend – returns this Autumn with a new single Stellify and his sixth studio album 'My Way'. Already critically heralded as his finest album yet, 'My Way' sees Brown reunited with long time collaborator, writer and producer Dave McCracken – the pairing that worked together on 'F.E.A.R.' 'My Way' was recorded at Battery Studios – the same place where Brown and the Stone Roses recorded their seminal debut album 20 years earlier. 'Stellify' is the first single to be taken from the album and has already received more radio and video airplay than any previous single since 'F.E.A.R.' The track was made available digitally on radio date and instantly shot to number 1 on iTunes, undeniably proving the time is right for a successful comeback. Ian Brown makes a triumphant return to the live arena as very special guest at this year's Reading / Leeds festival before headlining Dubai's inaugural Sound City event, and undertaking his own headline UK tour in Nov / Dec.
Order all 3 formats of the new Madonna Single for the fantastic price of only £12. Consisting of 2 CD's and a limited edition Picture Disc, it includes exclusive remixes by Paul Oakenfold, Benny Benassi and Johny Viscious !!
In terms of sound and sonic vision 'The Resistance' is their most ambitious album yet, which is clearly saying something. They have blown up the robo-funk/monster riff/stadium space rock sound of 'Black Holes' and widened their viewfinder even further to take in an even greater horizon of sound. For Muse, […read more…]

LALO SCHIFRIN Sky Riders [released 3rd August 2009]
CD: As a thriller, 'Sky Riders' is frankly quixotic. It posits a sketchy tale of an American industrialist (Robert Culpt) whose wife (Susannah York) and children are snatched by terrorists from their Athens home and spirited away to an abandoned monastery perched like an eagle's nest on a remote and impregnable peak in Thessaly. The Greek police (their chief played, inexplicably, by the adorable Charles Aznavour) are helpless; all seems lost until the timely arrival of the kidnapped woman's former husband (James Coburn), a kind of soldier of fortune who swiftly hits on a plan: a daring guerrilla rescue by hang glider. It's worth noting that Sky Riders, however minutely it may figure in Lalo Schifrin's overall career, marks something of a watershed for the composer. Recorded in February of 1976 (a busy year that would include music for a total of five feature films, a television movie and a generous sprinkling of episodic TV), it would prove to be the last, for a time, in that long, innovative line of jazz/funk-dominated scores with which Schifrin made his reputation. Later in the year, he would score – and earn an Academy Award nomination for – Voyage of the Damned, delving into a more conventionally orchestral if still compelling style. For the next two decades – until director Brett Ratner asked him to revive the funky mode of Enter The Dragon for Money Talks (1997) – this was the musical arena in which Lalo would explore and delight. The score has never been released before, not even on LP. This is the complete original score.
Battered by CDs, MP3s and internet streaming, you would have expected vinyl to be long since dead. So why is the west London factory famous for producing Sgt Pepper, The Dark Side Of The Moon and Tubular Bells back at the top of the charts again? Read the article at […read more…]
