think I would need a news section 30 years on but have added this as they
seem to keep doing re-releases. Thanks to Mike for much of the info.
Nov 2013- Released earlier but only caught my attention.
'Everbody Is Fantastic' has also been re-released with another Peel session
as a bonus. It was meant to have 2 Peel sessions but due to licensing
issues only contains one. This leaves, I think, 3 tracks from the 6 Peel
sessions still unreleased (thanks to Stephen for pointing this out and
also finding out about the reason for non release of the other Peel session).
There are two re-releases of 'Love your Enemies and 'Clock Comes Down
The Stairs' coming out shortly. The good news for people who hadn't got
the CD's when they were previously released is that you can get them for
a tenner rather than the £353.03 that a new copy of the original
CD is going for on Amazon (after tax has been paid of course).
news for anyone who bought the original CD versions is that you might
want to fork out again as both CD's contain a complete Peel session as
a bonus. Clock also has "Money for the trams" and "Harmony
time" which have not previously been on CD.
Early recordings Cack Hand and Leper resurface, after appearing briefly
on Youtube. These were Fanning Sessions recorded in 1981 at the same session
as the previously surfaced Mitchelstown. The recordings were removed from
YouTube but not before they made it to the dodgy downloads sites.
Microdisney briefly reform for Nick Allum's Birthday Party. They play
Horse Overboard, Birthday Girl and Loftholdingswood.
Reekus Records releases the band's never before released 1981 tracks Victory
and 12 Novembers on their 2011 compilation Too Late To Stop Now. These
were planned as the band's first single, but never released because the
five piece lineup split up.
-Reekus also reissues the 1981 EP Kaught At The Kampus on CD, which features
Microdisney's live track National Anthem, recorded at their first gig.
The tape ran out during the track, which is why the song ends with a delay.
The band didn't play any other songs.
