48 Chairs
70% Paranoid

Described as one of Manchester's best kept secrets, this was an album of the bringing together of free jazz honker Lol Coxhill and synth wannabees Gerry and the Holograms.  Originally made in 1981,  the album bridges electronic jazz and punk jazz with vocals supplied by punk one-timer Fran Kershner. A collision course of DIY and out there jazz that stands the test of time.

Gerry & The Holograms are a fascinating footnote in Manchester music history: their eponymous main song allegedly influenced New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’ and was much beloved of Frank Zappa, and yet the quasi-novelty synth-pop group is scarcely known. This release of their only full-length record might change that. Vinyl reissue on Cache Cache.
