New Cherry Red Records Compilation CD Set – Featuring A Track By Simple Minds

Due for release late next month “Shake The Foundations” looks like another well thought out Cherry Red release, focusing on what they’re classifying as “Militant Funk and The Post-Punk Dancefloor 1978-1984”.

On CD One of the compilation is Empires And Dance album track classic, This Fear Of Gods.

Other artists to feature on the set include: A Certain Ratio, Haircut 100, The Stranglers, Fun Boy Three and John Cooper Clarke.

I like the cover artwork. It seems somewhat inspired by Mr Garrett’s Assorted iMaGes work.

The Anchoress – Premiere Of “Show Your Face” Single And Album The Art Of Losing Ready To Pre-Order

I sadly missed the premiere radio play of The Anchoress’s new single, Show Your Face, this afternoon on BBC Radio 6 Music with Steve Lamacq as I was making my way into Glasgow’s West End (for my belated birthday treat of seeing GlasGlow at the Botanic Gardens – some vids and pics in a separate post for those interested. Lol) just as the show was starting.

But here is the video of the single on YouTube. What a fab video. And what a fab synth sound on the song. It’s well braw! I loved it when I heard it the first time at the Meltdown Festival in 2018. Geez! Feels like forever ago now!

But the other fab news is, we have a release date and pre-order details for the new Anchoress album, The Art Of Losing! Yaaaay! Awesome news! It’s a while off yet. It’s not out until next March, but Catherine tells me we will get to hear a new track each month until the album is released.

Details for pre-ordering can be found HERE

I have pre-ordered this beautiful bundle pictured.

And, of course, you can keep up-to-date on all the news by checking The Anchoress and Catherine’s social media pages.

Happy days!
