MARMADUKE DUKE

image001.jpg

'Duke Pandemonium' CD Release Date 11/05/2009

http://991.com/buy/productinformation.aspx?StockNumber=468714

Marmaduke Duke, the self-created surreal musical world of enigmatic Scottish duo The Atmosphere and The Dragon, two frontmen better known as Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro and JP Reid of Sucioperro. 'Duke Pandemonium' follows on from the release of single 'Kid Gloves' in March and the hit 'Rubber Lover' on 20th April and is part two of a mythological musical album trilogy, performed and produced by The Atmosphere and The Dragon in 24 hours, and mixed by Rich Costey [Muse, Mars Volta, Bloc Party]. The 16th Century Duke, inspired by a trilogy of unfinished books written by a Portuguese man befriended by the Scottish duo, is perceived by The Atmosphere and The Dragon – the Duke's henchmen – as a wandering soul, a personification of man's most primitive and often under-explored impulses, and 'Duke Pandemonium' is the Duke's vision of a hedonistic and aberrant disco-party. In the debut album 'The Magnificent Duke', The Duke charted his slow descent into psychosis as represented by three differing musical suites – larynx-shredding rock, head-mashing ambient and heart-melting acoustic. In 'Duke Pandemonium', we see a change in the duke: The Duke is back and is ready for a party fuelled with decadence, deviance and dancing. From the minimalist lo-fi electronica of 'Kid Gloves', to the LCD Soundsystem-esque dance-punk mayhem of 'Silhouettes'; the urgent drum 'n' bass beats of 'Music Box'; the provocatively infectious pop-hooks of 'Rubber Lover'; and concluding with the carnival craziness of 'Skin The Mofo' – complete with steel drums; 'Duke Pandemonium' is the epitome of an eclectic record.

NEW YORK DOLLS

'Cause I Sez So' CD – 468116 Release Date 04/05/09

http://991.com/buy/productinformation.aspx?StockNumber=468116

The Iconic band reunite with former producer Todd Rundgren for their fourth studio album 'Cause I Sez So'. The album includes 11 original compositions and a new version of 'Trash' from their 1973 debut album. The New York Dolls – David Johansen (vocals); Sylvain Sylvain (guitar); Steve Conte (guitar); Brian Delaney (drums); and Sami Yaffa (bass) appeared at the South By Southwest (SXSW) music conference. The New York Dolls swaggered onto the New York music scene in the early 70's, influencing a generation with their subversive mix of high-decibel rock and high-heeled androgyny. The original band recorded a pair of milestone records – New York Dolls (1973) and Too Much Too Soon (1974) – before breaking up in 1977. The surviving members reformed the group in 2004 to much acclaim, but soon lost bassist Arthur Kane to leukaemia. Two years later, Johansen and Sylvain reunited again to record the New York Dolls' third studio album, 'One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This'.

The Maccabees return with their 2nd album 'Wall Of Arms'.

IRONIK featuring CHIPMUNK & ELTON JOHN

image001.jpg

'Tiny Dancer [Hold Me Closer]' Release Date 27/04/2009

http://991.com/buy/productinformation.aspx?StockNumber=467535

'Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer)' is the brand new single that sees Ironik team up with fellow grime star Chipmunk and the legendary Sir Elton John for an April 27th release. Out via Asylum Records, the uber-catchy track which samples Elton John's classic original showcases the melodic flows of Top 5 artist Ironik with 18-year-old rising star – Chipmunk who bagged a Mobo last year for Best Newcomer. The result is eagerly anticipated and hailed on Radio 1's Switch as the 'Song of the summer'!! Sir Elton John has only cleared two other samples for rap artists before: "Tupac and Kanye West are two artists I've let sample my records – that says everything about how much I rate Ironik" says Sir Elton, adding: "It's good to be able to help young talent I believe in". The new arrangement of Sir Elton and Bernie Taupin's cult-classic was possible only with access to the original 'Tiny Dancer' master tapes and Elton's personal approval – an almost unprecedented honour which puts 21-year-old North Londoner Ironik, alongside his friend Chipmunk in exclusive and prestigious company. In turn the two MCs have put a distinctly 2009 spin on the 1971 recording. Last year Ironik's 'Stay With Me' stormed the UK Top 5 with minimal airplay going on to reside inside the Top 20 for nine weeks, heralding an entirely new mainstream sound and trail-blazing a path for his peers to follow… Chipmunk alongside other artists such as Tinchy Stryder and N-Dubz have now followed Ironik's lead into the mainstream. Chipmunk's effervescent 'Chip Diddy Chip' landed major media support and has become a hit on his own independent label. Ironik's album 'No Point In Wasting Tears' followed hot on the heels of his debut single, 'Stay With Me' and is full of culturally relevant lyrical themes and sing-along choruses. These two releases became a definitive moment in Black British music – the benchmark for what is now known as Post-Grime Pop (PGP): the brighter, bubblier, youthful sound of the British streets. 'No Point In Wasting Tears' draws a pool of talent from his friends in the scene including the central figures: ultra-hot MC Chipmunk; producer Bless Beats; rapper Tinchy Stryder; and 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley; whilst also unearthing outstanding new vocal talents.

NOISETTES

image002.jpg

'Wild Young Hearts' CD Release Date 20/04/2009

http://991.com/buy/productinformation.aspx?StockNumber=466780

Two years on from a debut album awash with punk spirit and scorching blues-rock, London trio Noisettes make their return with 'Wild Young Hearts', a set of sleek pop songs steeped in soul, dizzy on disco and harking back to the days of blues and jazz greats. From the galloping funk grooves of forthcoming, first single 'Don't Upset The Rhythm', to the joyous, jazzy title track, the stomping electro-rock of 'Saturday Night', the glorious '60s-tinged soul of 'Never Forget You' and the sultry, shimmering pop of '24 Hours', in 'Wild Young Hearts', Noisettes have made what is set to be one of 2009's most adventurous albums. Never fond of a formula, the trio always intended a radical musical detour from their acclaimed debut, 'What's The Time Mr Wolf?', an album that spawned five singles and took them on tour for over a year, sharing arena stages with Muse and criss-crossing the States with TV On The Radio and Bloc Party. If you can imagine a hybrid of Blondie, Ting Tings and Rihanna, you'll begin to get an idea of how special this new record is. Vocalist Shingai Shoniwa, meanwhile, is fast becoming a style icon with the makings of a modern-day Deborah Harry.
