Jon Savage’s Secret History Of Second Wave Psychedelia 1988-93

Today in the office we got excited about a brilliant record curated by Jon Savage; it is also featured as BBC’s compilation of the week.

Released on Caroline True and curated by Jon Savage, Perfect Motion revisits the psychedelic ‘baggy’ era of British music, a period that simultaneously looked back to the golden age of freak-folk and foreshadowed the coming electronic revolution. In Savage’s words, “These 14 songs are all part of that mood in one way or another, in their euphoric sound, experimental attitude, and mixing of dance with rock and back again. It was a wonderful time: the second age of psychedelia”.

You can have a look at a great informative review of the album published by The Quietus or purchase the record yourself, it is available eg. via Rough Trade.

Heavenly 25 celebration at Glastonbury Festival

We are really excited to be hosting a Heavenly 25 celebration at the Williams Green stage at Glastonbury Festival this summer.

“The Festival’s own village green, on the road between the Pyramid Stage and The Acoustic Stage, William’s Green boasts a cornucopia of exotic plus the site’s biggest bar.”

We have King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, TOY, The Voyeurs , Stealing Sheep & Hooton Tennis Club all playing during our day.

For the full festival line-up and more information, head to Glastonbury’s website.

Caught By The River’s new book ‘On The Snap’ and Brian Case’s jazz playlist

On the Snap arrives this June via the publishing arm of Caught by the River:

The Anglo-Irish son of a Deptford cop, Brian Case got hooked by Charlie Parker at the age of 12 and never looked back. For five decades, writing for NME, Melody Maker, Time Out and latterly Uncut and The Times, his distinctive hard-bitten voice rapped out pieces on a thrilling after-midnight world of jazz, film and hard-boiled fiction.

A true original to stand alongside such peers as Nick Kent, Julie Burchill and Tony Parsons, Case wrote about a parallel, hipper universe in a sharp, speedy idiom all of his own. The ultimate turner-onner, his passion was for the noir of James Ellroy and the frenzied hard-bop of Johnny Griffin, but he was also the first journalist to go on tour with The Sex Pistols and was perfectly happy to shoot the breeze with Al Pacino with his pockets laden down with live ammo.

On the Snap is a collection of conversations with Case where he discusses some of his most memorable encounters – from Chet Baker and The Sex Pistols to Jack Nicholson to Michael Caine. All delivered in the unique vernacular of one of the great contemporary journalists, it’s a snapshot of an intoxicating and disappearing world.

As Richard Williams – his editor at Melody Maker and a long-standing admirer of his work – eulogises in his introduction:
His writing was surprising, funny, elusive, erudite, emotionally engaged and all his subjects, from Ian Dury to Norman Mailer, from Don McCullin to Tom Waits, the whole gang of motormouths and shutterbugs, junkies and pussy hounds, the witnesses to bebop and Belsen, get a fair hearing and words shaped by acute sensibility.”

The book is published in hardback on 18 June and advance signed copies can be ordered via the Caught by the River shop. You can also listen to Brian reading a few of the chapters over on our Soundcloud page and, treat of all treats, Brian has created a playlist of his favourite jazz numbers which can be listened to on Spotify:
