LUDELLA BLACK with The Masonics
LP launch Party
Ludella Black was an original member of legendary Medway garage band The Delmonas, after which she became a Headcoatee along with her friends Holly Golightly, Kyra Rubella and ‘Bongo’ Debbie.
Since the demise of Thee Headcoatees in 1999 she has released two solo albums on Damaged Goods (She’s Out There (2000) and From This Witness Stand (2008)), and plays live with The Masonics regularly and has appeared on loads of singles and albums with them too.
Her second album, another classic, From This Witness Stand, featured 14 tracks recorded over summer 2008 in Spain, backed by The Masonics ( Micky Hampshire (Milkshakes) Bruce Brand (Milkshakes / Headcoatees / Holly Golightly /Dutronc) and John Gibbs (Wildebeests / Holly Golightly).
Till You Lie In Your Grave is Ludella’s 3rd and favourite solo album to be released by Damaged Goods.It’s due out on May 25th 2018.
It was recorded at Jim Riley’s Ranscombe studio, in her home town of Rochester in Kent. The fourteen songs include twelve titles penned by Mick Hampshire, a cover of The Beatles’ ‘Wait’, and a nod to her headbanging days with a rendition of Black Sabbath’s ‘Am I Going Insane’. Pour yourself a large Merlot, sit back, relax and enjoy!
The Jack Cades
Pedigrees don't come much better than the Mystreated, State Records, the Embrooks, the Higher State, Speedball Jr, Hipsville/Weirdsville, the Missing Souls, the Baron Four, and Thee Vicars. Not to mention the Masonics, the Kaisers, and the Wildebeests.
The Jack Cades were born in late 2017 when Mike (Lead Guitar, Vocals) and Elsa (Rhythm Guitar, Vocals) decided to record some of their songs at Mole's (Drums) notorious State Records Studios in Folkestone, Kent. They invited John Gibbs (The Masonics, The Wildebeests) to record bass on some of their songs at the time, which resulted in a mini debut LP "Music for Children", which will be released May 18th on Dirty Water Records.
At first, the band wasn't sure if it could work full-time as everybody was pretty busy on the garage/Soul/Freakbeat/other undefined musical genre scene.
Mike, Mole, and Elsa are all in other bands (The Baron Four, The Embrooks, The Galileo 7, The Missing Souls...) But, after recording, it wasn't a difficult decision to make. It sounded too good! The Jack Cades had to play live!
They then had the brilliant idea of asking the lovely Alexandra (Speedball Jr, Hipsville/Weirdsville) to join them on bass who bit their hand off as if it was a mussel.
The Jack Cades is a mix of a shared passion for inspirational sounds such as 1960s Garage bands, Snotty Punk from the 1970s, Sun-kissed sweaty Rhythm n' Blues, and a lot of inspirational people.
If this means nothing to you, it doesn't matter. Just listen to The Jack Cades and come see them play live, as music is for the soul and the ears, not for the eyes.
