Exclusive, unreleased rarities from: TEXAS, BLUEBELLS, DEL AMITRI, PRIMAL SCREAM, ALTERED IMAGES, GUN, DEACON BLUE, HIPSWAY, LOVE & MONEY ... and many more!
PARK LANE STUDIO in Glasgow was host to many young bands from 1980 onwards, many making their first recordings and still seeking a record deal. Some did become successful, and a vibrant scene soon developed centred around the studio.
Now the studio archives have been prised open, and a treasure trove of fascinating and unreleased tapes discovered! This album offers a unique and broad insight into the whole history of the important Glasgow scene, the studio and the many interwoven musicians and bands that recorded there.
The fertile creative atmosphere is demonstrated through the associations between artists and the musicians who would turn out to play for various bands.
Notably, Johnny McElhone was songwriter and bassist for Altered Images, then Hipsway, then Texas – achieving the rare feat of top 20 singles in 3 different bands. Paul Quinn was vocalist in Bourgie Bourgie; he and others were in The Jazzateers, then some became Nectarine no 9. Mark Rankin, the singer from Gun, is a cousin of Sharleen Spiteri… the list of connections goes on and on.
The unreleased tracks reveal hidden gems and work-in-progress. The Bluebells no. 1 hit ‘Young At Heart’ is heard before the violinist added the part that gained him a songwriter’s share in court. Many, such as Texas and Primal Scream, are heard in their more natural raunchy untamed sound, before the edges were smoothed. Some, such as Del Amitri and ac acoustics, have unheard songs discovered; others are here with cult tracks that deserve wider recognition.
An intriguing collection of a hitherto little documented ‘Scotrock’ scene, ‘PARK LANE ARCHIVES’ is an 80-min. album featuring 22 tracks. It comes with a 16-page booklet with photos and biogs of all bands, together with notes by Del Amitri's Justin Currie and various other people who were there.
