The Who WHO A long awaited new album from The Who, their first record in 13 years. "This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions... There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice... Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are okay, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today." - Pete Townshend CD | LP
The Tickle Rare & Unreleased: 1967 [RSD19] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2019. Any remaining stock will be available online from Saturday 20th April, strictly one per customer. 10" black vinyl. 50 years ago DAVID BOWIE released ‘Space Oddity’ which transported him into pop orbit. The memorable out-of-this-world guitar on the track was provided by MICK WAYNE who had first worked with Bowie in 1967 alongside TONY VISCONTI who was kick-starting his career as a producer. Visconti also produced Mick’s band THE TICKLE after rechristening them from the Bunch Of Fives. Their debut 45 ‘Subway (Smokey Pokey World)’ was released in September 1967 but failed to chart and the group split up leaving an unreleased 45 in the can. Mick began assembling his next band JUNIOR’s EYES who released their only album in 1969 whilst gigging as Bowie’s backing band prior to the formation of the Spiders From Mars. ‘Subway’s hooky psychedelic guitar driven blast of London Town rock has made THE TICKLE’s only 45 a much desired cult record that has acquired of a value of over £700.

Taking up a range of classic tracks from the likes of Jimmy Ear World, Saves The Day and more. Comprised of five stripped-back covers of tracks from Jimmy Eat World, Something Corporate, Saves The Day, The Juliana Theory, and local Tallahassee band Goodbye Love, the acoustic EP acts as a snapshot of songs that inspired Sanders to become a musician. “When I started getting into music, I got an acoustic guitar when I was ten years old. I spent all of my time with that guitar, just learning to play and writing my first songs. I've been in so many bands since then, and it's cool to go back to playing acoustic and singing the way it all started,” Sanders says of the EP. Rise Records LP Exclusive
