Ignition Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
A veritable feast for fans of late Clash legend Joe Strummer here. Joe Strummer 001 actually doesn’t feature any of his recordings with the trailblazing group. Instead the focus is on his solo material - all of his LPs feature here along with some soundtrack work and unreleased wares - and his time with The Mescaleros and The 101ers. Several lavish packages are available including a box-set full of goodies.

(8) Theeeeere sheeeee gooooooes, theeeere shee … Oh sorry, I always get The La’s and The Coral mixed up. It’s the latter who we’re concerning ourselves with here. The modern Merseybeaters are back with Move Through The Dawn, their ninth LP and second for Ignition Records (Primal Scream, The Courteeners). It features more of their signature jangle-pop fare, now with an added dash of psych-rock flare. Hey, that rhymes. Come to think of it, it might be one of their lyrics.
Brummie post-Britpoppers Peace have left the dizzying frenzy of the major label music machine for the more sedate pastures of sort-of-indie label Ignition. There’s no great change in the group’s sonic standards, mind. Singles ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ and ‘Power’ are still full-blooded indie anthems that will sound great when played over the tannoy as Peace walk up to receive the NME Award for Album Of The Year 2018.
The Courteeners frontman, Liam Fray, went on a little jaunt around the country playing acoustic shows. Inspired by this, and to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut album, The Courteeners have decided to re-record St. Jude in an unplugged stylie to make St. Jude Re:Wired. LP and CD on Ignition.
Sheffield residents Dolomite Minor make heavy blues-rock, the kind that has made a detour through the desert before pushing into your personal space. Distorted guitars, drawling vocals and thundering drums, you know the score. Girl Of Gold is an EP that provides four tracks of their sound: plenty rock. On Ignition.

The Courteeners are one of those bands while not famous nationally, have gathered an enormous following which allows them to play gigs in front of 30,000 people. Their previous album 'Concrete Love' did very well for them and there's no reason why the perky well crafted indie rock of this, their fifth album won't follow suit.
Distance Inbetween marks the return of psychedelic indie-rock band The Coral. Six years have passed since 2010’s Butterfly house, which was the first album without guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones. The band are still helmed by James Skelly but now welcome ex-Zutons guitarist Paul Malloy, who also played with drummer Ian Skelly in Serpent Power, into the fold. The album was influenced by the books of Richard Yates, the graphic novels of Alan Moore, classic toys from the 1980s, Krautrock and Muddy Waters.
Baby Strange are a gang of Glaswegian indie rockers, with their minds apparently focused on the California Sun lurking on the other side of the planet. There is a strong dose of wall-of-sound production here, which turn the fuzz-guitars into pretty huge sonic objects. The single is pressed to yellow 7” vinyl, on Ignition.
Two thirds of Doves, twin brothers Jez and Andy Williams launch a new project called Black Rivers. There’s certainly a lot to enjoy for fans of their previous work with both brothers sharing vocal duties to bring a sort of yearning escapism to the songs. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Ignition.
Yes, the boys are back in town! Just when you were getting to grips that the reunion of Slowdive wasn’t some kind of shoegaze dream, Ride have announced their reunion. This is where it all began with Nowhere, their debut. Classic fuzzy cascades of ambivalence and slouching, Nowhere has rightfully been hailed a classic and is still as punchy yet sedate as ever.
A reissue from Rhino Records of 180g vinyl.
