DAVE HENDERSON of DISCO ZOMBIES – Song For Ewe

“Blah” by Sidney And The Chimps I saw a picture of The Cramps’ Lux and Ivy in their record basement and have spent years unearthing the songs that they loved. This comes from a double album I put together for Rough Trade shops on gloriously coloured vinyl. It’s a band playing a beatnik jazz tune back in 1958 and adding their own one word commentary when the mood takes them. It’s effortlessly ridiculous and somehow wonderful too.”

LEE RANALDO & RAÜL REFREE – Song(s) For Ewe

“We listened in fascination to these tracks, which ranged from about 20 seconds to 3 minutes (shades of the brevity of California’s The Minutemen, and the UK’s Wire, both of which began around the same time). Turns out they were improvised with 2 microphones and a simple tape machine over 10 days of experimental jamming in the living room of one of the members (we were recording in similar fashion at the time!), then edited down to the album tracks.”

JENNY MOORE of JENNY MOORE’S MYSTIC BUSINESS – Song For Ewe

“The feeling in my muscles changed – I couldn’t concentrate on the conversation or coffee, just the rhythm and voices that were cycloning around in the air. The beats that build up from breathing, heaving, pounding are both intensely groovy and intuitively clever. The collective voice of these women blows my mind, it’s funny and strong and refreshing in how perfectly ‘un-pretty’ it is, how many textures, attitudes, wisdoms and desires they tap into through the singing.”

HAIRBAND – Lucky 7

“Punk rock changed our lives!” Minutemen were all about promoting how everyone, no matter their background or ability should have access to playing and watching live music (We Jam Econo is one of the best ever music docs!) and this is something which we are so lucky to have in Glasgow: A real community and second family!
