Brimming with dark, epic energy, Thomas Weber possesses a creativity and sense of innovation that is truly unique. Fearlessly extending into raucous and experimental bursts of static while sounding like a highly charged improv ensemble. Weber's playfulness and scope make Maander a truly engaging experience. It's his willingness to explore new sounds, moods and manners - to move well beyond expectations and into a new realm - that make Maander so interesting. Weber (a member of the revered Payola collective that also includes Tied & Tickled Trio, Notwist and Village of Savoonga among others) ably provides 13 tracks of unrivaled spontaneity, diversity and originality that serve to shake things up and turn the genre on its head.

This sumptuous box set includes unseen photos, memorabilia and an essay by Sylvia Patterson, ex-Smash Hits writer and author of acclaimed book (nominated for the Costa Award) I'm Not With the Band.

Probably many of you looking at this listing have never even heard of Clifford T. Ward and I am not really surprised by that all too much. He really has become somehwhat of a forgotten British artist only known briefly from his work in the '70s.
Having at last laid Roxy to bed with its final, intoxicatingly elegant albums, Ferry continued its end-days spirit with his own return to solo work. Dedicated to Ferry's father, Boys and Girls is deservedly most famous for its smash single "Slave to Love." With a gentle samba-derived rhythm leading into the steadier rock pace of the song, it's '80s Ferry at his finest, easy listening without being hopelessly soporific…
