Weatherbox Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
With her long-awaited return to the stage and to recorded music still fresh in the mind, what better time to get An Introduction To the English folk legend Shirley Collins into circulation? Shirley’s career has been long and varied, so it is extremely helpful to have these fifteen tracks plucked from her discography to serve as an entry point for the new listener.

If you haven’t yet been introduced to Anne Briggs, then you really need to be, and Weatherbox have got your back. An Introduction To Anne Briggs summarises her extraordinarily stark and powerful style of British folk music, with many of the recordings simply for her unaccompanied voice. Vinyl compilation release.
Indie pop veterans Spearmint never give up do they? And despite being around since the mid '90s they continue to produce their neat Pulp meets Lightning Seeds pop on this their first new recordings in quite a few years now. With plenty of trumpets parping away Shirley this will appeal to their legions of fans.
Spearmint are the sort of '90s survivors that could have had Pulp - like success if the planets had arranged themselves a tad differently. Instead they soldier on into 2016 with a new album which re-unites them with producer John Etkin-Bell for an album of sunny side up pop tunes that are reminiscent of the more intelligent end of Brit pop.

Album number five from Liverpool’s finest Echo & The Bunnymen, newly reissued on vinyl by Weatherbox! This was the band’s follow-up to the legendary Ocean Rain, and moves away somewhat from that album’s stringed masses to a more keyboard-led sound. Get in quick and your 180g double LP will be cut on clear vinyl!
Echo & The Bunnymen
Let's reissue every post-punk album ever and feel totally gloomy about it! Weatherbox are totally up for it, anyway, as they continue to celebrate the miserable body of work Echo & The Bunnymen have gifted us, the gloomiest of the gloomy, over the years. It's been over thirty years since 'Porcupine' came out, if you can believe that. The record demonstrated the enticingly wobbly voice of Ian McCulloch for the third time, while the guitars did a decent job of sounding like they were standing on the periphery of a flat earth, ready to fall off the side.

'Ocean Moon' was initially released in 1984 by Echo & The Bunnymen, who are now recognised as one of the most formative post-punk bands. The record carried on the band's interest in using ornamenting arrangements to complement their despondent sound, including a string section, a la what the Waterboys did in order to make their simple rock music cinematic. It's arguably the softest entry in the Echo discography.

'80s Liverpudlian post-punkers The Wild Swans attempted to keep the dream alive after The Teardrop Explodes, forming out of their old members and releasing 'Revolutionary Spirit', their sole shining document. This collection gives a look in to the remixes and unheard demos that the band left trailing behind their new wave wake.
