NOTES

  • 2 Lost Souls – another single in the 52 release series
  • San Pedro Collective – 8 piece band from Manchester, creating genre-defying tunes that blend elements of everything from funk to punk, electronica to rock’n’roll, and basically “whatever else we feel like”. Originally spawned from the nucleus of Rikki Turner’s (Paris Angels) electronic project ‘San Pedro’, in mid-2019 Turner was joined by Justin Leonard on guitar, Keith Higgins on bass, and Simon Wolstencroft on drums…and the Collective was born. Working with guest vocalists Jasmine Needham, Sarah Bouchier and Millie MacBean throughout 2020, the band recorded and released the ‘Phase Two EP’ in July 2021 to rave reviews. While Turner has since moved on to start his next project, the band have gone from strength to strength and the addition of Sam Murray on lead guitar, Jeff Black and John Montague on keys, and Rick Burrows on Trumpet has given the band a full and dynamic live sound and opened up a new world of sonic possibilities, topped off perfectly by new permanent frontwoman Nathalie Haley on lead vocals. Black, Montague and Haley are simultaneously members of the band Positronik.
  • Dislocation Dance – rare recordings from the 1980s released for the first time – all proceeds going to the Help Joel Live Longer campaign.
