Olde English Spelling Bee Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records


Of all the recent Olde English Spelling Bee stuff that's passed through the gates of Norman Towers in the past few months Pigeons are the band I've struggled to get to grips with the most. I guess their style verges on folksy territory and I'm not sure about the vocals either but this new 7" is certainly redeeming my clouded memory of their outp...view item »

Chaos Destroy
Lightning Strikes Twice

We’ve got a slab of frantic Jap-influenced noise punk shrapnel here from America’s Chaos Destroy, who turn out ten tracks of head-fuckingly frantic, blown out hardcore punk which is all but obscured by tape muck and feedback and broken, distorted equipment. The primary influences here would have ...view item »

Matt Kivel
Double Exposure

I have a certain expectation of Olde English Spelling Bee releases and it looks like that expectation is gonna need adjustment as OESB isn’t the label it once was. This is no reflection on the quality of Matt Kivel’s work of course (he’s an excellent singer/songwriter) but I was hoping for something a little crazier. Anyway, wh...view item »

Greatest Hits
Danse Pop

Who calls their band Greatest Hits? The best band ever I guess. Now, as I'm sure most of you are aware just about anything coming out on Olde English Spelling Bee must obviously be good, so this is bound to amaze and excite in equal measures right? Ok, I've put it on and (no surprise) it's good...crazy good. Not an easy one to get my head around...view item »

Big Troubles

Happy days. We got a big old delivery of new beach flavours from the ever reliable Olde English Spelling Bee label. First up it's Big Troubles debut LP 'Worry'. Now you may recall me wittering on about B.T's Spector vs. Hannett production sound in the review of their 7" single and I'm pleased to here that theme runs true throughout 'Worry'. ...view item »

Outer Limits Recordings

Sam Mehran a.k.a. Sam Meringue returns with another dose of Outer Limits Recordings fun. 'Julie' is Meringue's British power pop ballad that dwells on dramatic themes of love/suicide/reincarnation etc. By comparison to previous O.L.R. releases this effort is very much consistent with the concept of a proper pop song, featuring coherent vocals an...view item »

Big Troubles
Drastic & Difficult

This Big Troubles 7" is the first in a series of Olde English Spelling Bee 7"s due over the coming months. Recommended to the label by Matt Mondanile (Real Estate, Ducktails etc.). Big Troubles trade in a mutant form of lo-fi pop recorded in an almost industrial style. Be warned, though B.T. are slightly harsh on the ears you'll be rewarded long...view item »
