From FdM:

Work is well underway on the last releases of 2014 - I'm aiming for a mid-November release-date, but i won't be able to confirm that until one of the projects gets a firm schedule from the pressing-plant so I won't be giving all the details until i have a bit more news; but I've been putting some basic information on the FdM website in anticipation and i can tell you that the November releases should be:

'Elapsed Memories', by The Chemistry Set - a 7" EP with two fantastic new songs and a Hendrix cover by one of the classiest UK psych bands of the last 20 years. The Chemistry Set have never sounded better and i'm well-pleased they're letting FdM loose with their newest recordings.

'Coltrane' - songs by John and Alice on one 7" single - covered by Finland's Superfjord and Fleetwood's Earthling Society. An idea that's expanded as we went along and now includes a bonus 60 minute+ CD of remixes, live recordings, and new songs inspired by the original songs, or not as the case may be.

'Postcards From The Deep' - the FdM 2015 Annual in all but name, so be prepared for something that's suitably off-the-wall....10 covers of songs from the 60s - from fuzz to freakbeat, psych to surf - on 10 single-sided clear flexidiscs, with 10 postcards, a fold-out poster AND a CD that compensates for the limitations of the flexis - all in a neat little clambox - the perfect Christmas gift for people who really should know better; I blame The Thanes, The Loons, The Luck Of Eden Hall, Schizo Fun Addict and six other artists who really should have known better too.

not to mention......the 2014 year-end freebie for club members who've been keeping up with the releases throughout the year by buying them from me or via Nick Leese at Heyday...

'A Momentary Lapse Of Vinyl' - two CDs, with around 140 minutes of pre-Dark side Pink Floyd covers by everyone from Sendelica to Sproatly Smith, Vespero to Vibravoid, Mechanik to the Magic Mushroom Band.

More news as soon as i have the delivery dates a little clearer.
