THE DEATH SET
Following the huge success of their first 2 releases on Rabbitfoot/Morphius, the Death Set signed to Ninja Tune/Counter Records for their 'Worldwide' release, and followed that with the Michel Poiccard LP before recently signing with Dim Mak.   Somewhere along the way,. someone at google realized what we had known about a decade before: The Death Set belonged in every household in the world. Maybe not the band itself, but at least a laptop with kids playing The Death Set's massive "Negative Thinking" track while they ran around breaking stuff. Respect! Viva Beau Velasco Velasco.

THE HOMOSEXUALS
"Astral Glamour" 3xCD

The Homosexuals - Astral Glamour



From January to December 1977 a punk-band called The Rejects opened for the Damned, the Vibrators, the Jam, XRay Spex, the Adverts, Gen X, 999 and dozens more. Then, in an ultimate two-fingered salute to the music biz, they changed their name to The Homosexuals.

Over the next five years THE HOMOSEXUALS created a musical world of their own. Holed up in no-rent studios and squats, they mined every genre from psych-folk and Afrobeat to punk and dub, added killer hooks, then exuberantly tore it all apart. They wrote and recorded for five years, but they never took out an advert, sent out a promotional record, or got paid for a gig.

Despite releasing 6 records and a cassette on their own they accrued a grand total of two reviews. Despite Recommended Records' release in 1984 of a collection of early tapes and vinyl tracks as "The Homosexuals LP", the band disappeared into a 20-year silence (broken only by the most absurd if entertaining misinformation about sex-changes, madness & foreign intrigue.

The legend has grown, and today the Homosexuals are arguably the most acclaimed-and-least-heard band of the post-punk era. Their complete works on vinyl might be assembled for £500 or so but you’d still be missing their tape (fewer than 10 copies are known to exist).

After more than a year of research and restoration, a hundred hours of conversations with band-members, and endless surprises, the story of The Homosexuals can now be told. ASTRAL GLAMOUR gathers 81 songs and three-plus hours of legendary 1977-1983 artpunk — every Homosexuals song from their records and the C-60, plus a dozen other tracks never released anywhere before.

Astral Glamour also features a full-colour 32-page booklet with scores of unpublished photographs, posters, lyrics, song-by-song comments and an extensive history of their early years.
