Jack Ellister
When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease / Supernaut

Jack Ellister plays whatever songs he damn likes, as evidenced by this great covers pairing on a 7”. Black Sabbath’s classic heavy cruncher Supernaut on the one side, and Roy Harper’s wistful When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease on the other. Both get a very nice reinterpretation from Ellister: turns out they can share vinyl after all. On Fruits de Mer.

The 16th Dream Of Dr. Sardonicus Festival Live

The 16th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus was a music festival held at the behest of Fruits De Mer records and Sendelica in a basement in Cardigan. Though attempts were made to preserve the whole affair, some ghosts got in the machine and got in the way. What you can hear are the likes of Elfin Bow, The Fertility Cult and Consterdine in as close to their natural habitat as you can get.

The Chemistry Set
Firefly

It's 30 years of The Chemistry Set and they are still rocking out with some heavy, classic '60s psych with Firefly, released on Fruits de Mer as a 7" single. It's a heavy track that woozes into psych perfume before hammering itself home. It is backed by the gentler Sail Away.

Sendelica and Superfjord
Zappa

Fruits de Mer present another trip, re-presenting the past. A sweet 7” housing two covers of Frank Zappa Classics. With Finland’s psych-rock band Superfjord covering Peaches En Regalia in such a joyful and playful manner and the welsh Sendelica reamping Don't Eat The Yellow Snow with early Black Sabbath riffage and tone.

Us and Them
Fading WithIn The Dwindling Sun

Us And Them, an intimate-sounding Scandinavian duo, release an EP of their takes on English folk music. A Richard Thompson number and the traditional ‘Banks Of The Nile’, plus three Sandy Denny songs: this material is impeccable! Thankfully, these new versions do the songs justice, adding some of Us And Them’s own flavour along the way. Fading Within The Dwindling Sun is Fruits de Mer’s first 10” release.

Sendelica
Nite Flights

In which the Scott Walker track Nite Flights gets a thorough re-working by the space-rocking band Sendelica. Its an imaginative spin, though the original’s Walkerness still shines through. On the B-side is Swordfish’s own tabla-heavy re-working of the Sendelica re-working. 7” on Fruits De Mer, with three postcards thrown in for good measure.

Sidewalk Society
The Action / Bowie covers

Sidewalk Society love to play covers, and they especially love to play cover songs drawn from the absurdly fruitful time and place of the UK in the 60’s and early 70’s. This 7” does indeed include covers of The Action and David Bowie (two by each), performed in such a way that the music really does sound like it's pouring out of a vintage Abbey Road studio session. Coloured vinyl 7” on Fruits de Mer.
