Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey

Jazzateers are an indie band from Glasgow whose origins are in the Postcard Records stable along with the likes of Orange Juice and Josef K. Their story is an up and down one, littered with unreleased albums, splits and reformations which meant they never quite made it like they perhaps should have done. Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is an album they recorded when things seemed to be on the up, touring with Lloyd Cole and with their single, Pressing On, being given the single of the week accolade in the NME. The album was then, in true Jazzateers fashion, never released - until now! Maybe now is their time to shine.

Gareth Sager & The Hungry Ghost
Juicy Rivers

Hang on, look at the sleeve. A lion mauling a moustachioed man who is eating ....a biscuit?  It's a typically eccentric sleeve for this founding member of the Pop Group / Rip Rig & Panic and Head. Quite the career. Ten tracks of punk funk with collaborations with Jock Scot and Davey Henderson (Fire Engines etc).   

Port Sulphur
Paranoic Critical

The ominously named Port Sulphur turns out to be a collective collaboration that involves members of Orange Juice, Fire Engines, The Pop Group, Subway Sect and a stack of Glasgow musicians, not to mention Alan Vega(!) in places. Marshalled together by Douglas MacIntyre, these guys have produced a remarkably cohesive alt-indie-pop record in the form of Paranoiac Critical. Released on Creeping Bent.

The Secret Goldfish
Petal Split

The Secret Goldfish are a Glaswegian indie band formed in the 90’s who took a wee sixteen year break before returning last year. Their first new album since reuniting is Petal Split, and it includes a collaboration with Davy Henderson of Fire Engines and covers of Edwyn Collins and Vic Godard songs. Released by Creeping Bent.

Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy

'Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy' brings together early work by the underground New Wave outfit Jazzateers, a session that was recorded for Postcard Records but had all but been forgotten by time. "Wasted" is a throughline to the emergent indie rock of the time, intended to be the very last single Postcard Records would put out, and produced by the renowned Edwyn Collins, of Orange Juice fame. 'Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy' often shows off Jazzateers at their rawest and most immediate.    Tracks: Natural Progression Part 1 Don't Worry About A Thing Say Goodbye I'm No Tarzan When The Novelty Wears Off Can It Be Moon Over Hawaii Wasted Stop Me From Being Alone Love Is Around Run Away Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy Hey Mister Different Feeling Lee Can It Be Moon Over Hawaii Natural Progression Part 2
