Metal Blitz

Heavy metal band Blitzkrieg were formed in Leicester in 1980 by their only constant member, vocalist Brian Ross. Part of the Metal Nation label started by ex-Neat Records boss Jess Cox in 2004, their self-titled track was famously covered by Metallica for their B-side to their 1984 single ‘Creeping Death’. We are proud to represent their

Girls Go For Gold

Girls At Our Best were a post-punk favourite of the 1980s, represented recently by a 3-CD deluxe edition of their cult classic Pleasure!  We represent all of their recordings, including the fizzy mix of pop melody and punk energy of indie hit ‘Go For Gold’, recently used on the

Burn Down The House!

Alternative rock band The House Of Love released their landmark debut album on Creation Records, which became the critics' favourite of 1988, spurred on by indie hits 'Christine' and 'Destroy The Heart' (the second of which topped John Peel's Festive 50 poll that year). Cherry Red represent all of the band's Creation-era recordings, including

Have Love, Will Travel

Patrick "Pecker" Dunne was a noted Irish singer and banjo player who recorded folk and traditional music, becoming known to a wider audience via his appearances with The Dubliners, Stephen Rea and Richard Harris. He recorded material for the Emerald label – a catalogue of thousands of traditional Irish tracks now owned by

All That Jazz

Cherry Red’s bijou jazz archive recently swelled with the addition of the Newcastle Big Band album from 1972, a rarity which has attracted interest as the first musical output from one Gordon Sumner (better known as Sting). This joins a number of free/avant-garde jazz albums from that period by the likes

All The El Presidente´s Men

Named in honour of filmmaker Gus Van Sant's indie classic Drugstore Cowboy, the dark, atmospheric British-based trio Drugstore formed in London in 1993. Led by Brazilian vocalist/bassist Isabel Monteiro and LA drummer Mike Chylinski, they developed a sound that gradually grew slower and dreamier, featuring languid psychedelic elements and waves of distortion. We’ve enjoyed

The Road To Damascus

Formed from the ashes of acclaimed Scottish punk act Skids, Big Country blazed a trail across the 1980s and 1990s alternative rock scene. Their music was driven by the distinctive and very Scottish-sounding guitar style of Stuart Adamson, who tragically took his own life at the end of 2001. We're now the

Feel Fulfilled!

Founded in 1999, Fullfill Records was a UK independent label which worked with  established, largely left field acts for their new recordings. Key artists included the talented singer-songwriter Thea Gilmore, two maverick Manchester acts born in the post-punk era (The Fall, The Durutti Column), the late folk legend John Martyn and Chicago

Sonic Souls

With their crisp melodies, biting lyrics and driving guitars, Buzzcocks were one of the most influential bands to emerge from the initial wave of punk rock. Eschewing politics for the most part, they brought an intense, brilliant vigour to the three-minute pop song instead. Steve Diggle is the main driving

Eyeballs For All

The Louisiana-born members of the enigmatic avant-pop collective known as The Residents operate out of a shadowy alternative version of San Francisco. They have no names, no faces, no gender, no age, no race, no identities at all. Which is precisely why their song ‘My Second Wife’ has been used
