we're sworn to secrecy

....on pain of death on the details of this release at the moment but, when we set out in 2008, we wanted to reissue classic/long-lost tracks, but no-one would let us. After 10 years, a label has finally relented and the album we're reissuing is rather special - but we're going to try to make it even more essential

Strange Roads

Strange Roads
Sidewalk Society

Sidewalk Society have been working on this tribute to the legendary band The Action for a long time - and it's a classic - 'Rolled Gold' re-made - a true labour of love by a band that know and love 60s UK music better than any US band I've come across.

Heaven Is In Your Mind

Heaven Is In Your Mind
Anton Barbeau

one of my absolute favourite singers, Anton Barbeau is back on Fruits de Mer with a cracking four-track EP of three covers and a new Ant track; Big Star's 'September Gurls' is among the tracks on there - probably one of my top 10 favourite songs ever

Us and Them
Fading Within The Dwindling Sun

Fading Within The Dwindling Sun
Us and Them

On our first 10" release, Us and Them have put together a five-tracker that means a great deal to me - reinterpreting some of The goddess-like Sandy Denny's best moments on record; only Britt from Us and Them could do this, in my opinion, and she does it beautifully - I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Sidewalk Society

Bowie meets The Action
Sidewalk Society

California's Sidewalk Society return after far too long away from FdM with a four-track EP that combines covers of songs by The Action and 60s era-Bowie; Sidewalk Society are a US band that really gets the sixties UK sound, I've loved them since i heard their version of 'Song Of A Baker' back in 2008.
