Prior to their ROSfest performance in 2012, Sanguine Hum had recently signed to the Esoteric Antenna label for the release of the Diving Bell album and it therefore seems appropriate that the label have made the concert available on CD with the added bonus of the visual. Although the audio has been previously available as a download, this excellently packaged CD/DVD release of Sanguine Hum’s performance on the Sunday morning of 6th May 2012 from the Majestic Theater in Gettysburg is certainly worth the investment.
The Esoteric Antenna label is delighted to announce the release of the new album from Sanguine Hum. Now We Have Light is the third Sanguine Hum album, following on from the acclaimed albums Diving Bell and the Weight of the World. Now We Have Light is a double CD concept album. Unusually with this record, it is also something that the band have been working on for over a decade, and its roots go right back to the days of Antique Seeking Nuns, which was the earliest project that guitarist Joff Winks and keyboard player Matt Baber collaborated on…
Since no "Deluxe Edition" exists of this album, I decided to make my own collection while I wait for the real official edition to appear, because, it'll appear, right ??? I think you'll really enjoy this compilation. This is a mix of Rattle And Hum album, b-sides, and live tracks from the DVD that didn't appear on the album.
Who knows what Dave Edmunds was thinking when he agreed to produce and assemble the soundtrack to 1985's Porky's Revenge! It's easier to see the motives of the movie's producers – they were flush with cash after two successful teen-sex comedies set in the '50s, and who would be better to create a new soundtrack of old-time rock & roll than Edmunds, who was not only well-known for his retro-rock, but was riding a wave of popularity after a pair of MTV-friendly Jeff Lynne-produced albums in the mid-'80s. That makes sense. What boggles the mind is that Edmunds, after accepting the job, decided to treat this soundtrack – which, let's remember, is the second sequel to a film best known for a scene of horny teenage boys spying on the girls in a gym shower and for a female character called "Lassie" who howls like a dog during orgasm – as a prestige project, recruiting such superstars as George Harrison, Carl Perkins, Jeff Beck, Willie Nelson, and Robert Plant (performing under the Crawling King Snakes moniker with Phil Collins on drums!), along with the up-and-coming Fabulous Thunderbirds, to record new material for this exploitation film!
