Fred Frith – Same Old Me

Fred sums it all up on this track from his 1983 release on Ralph Records, ‘Cheap At Half The Price’.

Fred Frith – Heart Bares

Odd little number from Fred’s 1983 album on Ralph Records titled ‘Cheap At Half The Price’. The track title is a cheeky nod to the band Art Bears, which Fred was in along with Dagmar Krause, and fellow ex-Henry Cow man Chris Cutler.


Frank Zappa – We Got To Stick Together

A track from 1983’s ‘The Man From Utopia’ sees Frank, Ike, and the rest of the band play around with some Reggae; without, it seems, making fun of the genre (those that know Frank’s work will be aware that his musical mash up’s are generally parodic). They were, however, targeting the corrupt unions of the 70’s. A track from a real mixed bag of an album; an album that had some seriously wonderful, yet ludicrous numbers on it.

Sun Ra – Mistery Mr Ra (Live in Paris 1983)

The wonderful Sun Ra performs with his Arkestra in Paris, 1983, and all of the wonderful elements that makes Sun Ra so compelling are on full display here.

Renaldo & the Loaf – Feral Nelda Steals The Show

Wonderful outtake from the Arabic Yodelling album (1983), to be found on the reissues + extra material titled ‘Arabic Yodelling + Grain By Grain (For Accuracy)’. An essential purchase if you’re a fan of this sensational Portsmouth duo.

Renaldo & the Loaf – Vitamin Song

After the first 2 albums of distilled, pure lysergic madness, the Portsmouth duo started crafting beautifully haunting songs which culminated in the wonderful 1983 album ‘Arabic Yodelling’; this being one of them.

Danielle Dax – The Wheeled Wagon

A journey into the interzone from Dax’s 1983 album ‘Pop-Eyes’.
