JSH Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Secretive, ageless indie outfit The Hit Parade drop in from their native habitat (the 1960s) to deliver a new 7”. The titular A-side ‘Oh Honey I…’ recalls Shelagh Delaney’s drama A Taste of Honey and/or its 1961 film adaptation, while the B-side ‘History of Art’ pays homage to the late novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard. As always, it’s a labour of love by the band - cut by hand, recorded in mono, limited edition.
Indie hotshots THE HIT PARADE release their seventh album on JSH RECORDS 'CORNISH POP SONGS' includes twelve barn-storming new tunes inspired by the seagulls and the mackerel fishermen of Cornwall.This record features their single 'There's Something About Mary' ('A BONA FIDE SMASH' said Drowned In Sound) and other rocking tunes inc 'Rainy Day In Newlyn', 'Paddington To Penzance' and 'From Here To Lands End', with songstress CATH CARROLL joining the band to sing on three numbers.THE HIT PARADE is the creation of pop art constructivist Julian Henry.
