Fruits de Mer Announces 7" Singles for 2013

With this crop of new singles, Fruits de Mer is doing what they set out to do five years ago - getting new artists (and one or two who aren't quite so new) to reinterpret classic and long-lost songs from the 60s and early 70s, with the emphasis on psychedelia.

by Henry Schneider, Published 2013-07-02

There are two FdM artists you may already know - Stay and Jack Ellister - together with three that are new to the label - Crystal Jacqueline, White Sails and Me And My Kites; there is even a very special guest appearance by Tony Durant from the 70s acid-folk cult band Fuchsia.

The artists that created the original music range from the 'classics' (The Stones and The Beatles) to cult heroes (Syd Barrett, Mark Fry and Fuchsia), along with some personal favourites (Second Hand, The Troggs and - yes, it's true - Black Sabbath!).

The bare essentials are:

Crystal Jacqueline (FdM 39) Cousin Jane (The Troggs) / Play With Fire (Rolling Stones) / A Fairy Tale (Second Hand)

Jack Ellister (FdM 40) Within You Without You (Beatles) / Song For Wilde (Mark Fry) / Flaming (Syd Barrett)

Stay (Regal Crabomophone Winkle 10) I See The Rain (Marmalade) / If I Needed Someone (Beatles) / Guess I Was Dreaming (The Fairytale) / Mersey Dream (Stay)

White Sails (Regal Crabomophone Winkle 11) Laguna Sunrise (Black Sabbath) / Fluff (Black Sabbath) / The Answer (White Sails) / Death On A Pale Horse (White Sails)

Me and My Kites with Tony Durant, from Fuchsia (Regal Crabomophone Winkle 12) The Band (Tony Durant) / Isis' Adventure (Me And My Kites)
