Kevin Haskins FOXES TV (FOXES Magazine 20 October 2018)

Bauhaus’ co-founder Kevin Haskins to Produce FOXES TV Music Show

Kevin Haskins, drummer and founding member of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, Tones on Tail and his latest trio Poptone, has announced his involvement in an exciting new MTV-inspired television show.

Haskins just signed on as a music supervisor and producer for the new project, entitled FOXES Television, created by mother and son duo Tina and Julian de la Celle, founders of the rock ‘n’ roll music and men’s fashion-focused FOXES Magazine.

FOXES TV aims to fill a huge void, where once there was exciting music programming, such as The Tube and MTV, and also include men’s fashion. The aesthetic of FOXES Magazine will be placed firmly on the screen, showcasing new bands and men’s fashion, interviews, and behind the scenes footage with a very cinematic look.

The show has also engaged producer Orian Williams, who produced the BAFTA and CANNES winning film ‘Control’, directed by Anton Corbijn and detailing the life and times of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. Other noteable credits include ‘The Last Movie Star’ with Burt Reynolds and ‘England Is Mine’, a portrait of Morrissey and his early life in 1970s England.

The series would showcase the wide range of talent in both the music and fashion world. The two main sources of inspiration? The early inception of MTV, and Jim Jarmusch’s film ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’.

The show will revolve around an iconic duo, i.e. Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, pairing them up in conversation. The content around that conversation would include live sets with up-and-coming and already established bands, spotlights on fashion designers, as well as backstage features at fashion weeks and tour diaries with bands.

An Indiegogo campaign has been launched to help raise the needed budget to get the show off the ground. There are various “Perks” when donating certain amounts, and there is also a special one-time Bauhaus raffle with a few exclusive signed items by Kevin Haskins including: One small print of your choice and one large print of your choice from Kevin’s website, a signed copy of his new book ‘Bauhaus – Undead’, released via Cleopatra Records, and a signed Bauhaus tour laminate. Each raffle ticket is $10, so the more you contribute, the better your chances are to win! The four winners will be announced at 10pm Pacific time / 1pm Eastern / 6pm UK time on Saturday, October 20.

Contribute at www.indiegogo.com/projects/foxes-television-pilot and spread the word. A benefit show will take place on October 20. Further details about where this will be happening and who is playing will be announced soon.

Spiritualized – Fucked Up Inside (Glass Redux Records 26 October 2018)

Spiritualized ‘Fucked Up Inside’ LP gets Black Vinyl Edition via Glass Redux Records

London-based Glass Redux Records, the sister label of Glass Modern Records, has announced a new black vinyl edition of ‘Fucked Up Inside’ by British space rock legends Spiritualized. Originally released in 1993, this was their first official live release. This was originally a limited-edition package, available only via mail order.

Formed in 1990 in Rugby, Warwickshire by Jason Pierce (often known as J. Spaceman) after leaving Spacemen 3, Spiritualized members have changed from album to album, with Pierce being the only constant member.

The album’s name derives from the Spacemen 3 song ‘Medication’. These seven tracks were recorded during Spiritualzed’s first U.S. tour at the Crest Theatre in San Diego and the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on November 1992.  This reissue contains live performances of three songs from ‘Lazer Guided Melodies’, as well as cuts from ‘Pure Phase’ and a cover of Spaceman 3 ‘Walking With Jesus’.

The Glass Redux re-issues mark the first commercially distributed releases. The original sleeve design was faithfully re-created, the guitar effects pedals embossed and foil blocked. Available as heavyweight 180 gram vinyl, this record was re-mastered by John Rivers (Love and Rockets, Dead Can Dance, Xymox, Pop Will Eat Itself) at WoodbineStudios especially for vinyl release. It released on CD last November, and limited edition clear vinyl for this year’s Record Store Day.

This album distills the full hypnotic brilliance of the group’s remarkable live set onto record. Songs like ‘Take Good Care of It’, ‘Shine a Light’and ‘Smiles’ build and bloom with rare grandeur, crystallizing the epic sweep of Jason Pierce‘s sonic vision.

The black vinyl edition comes with an embossed and silver foil blocked sleeve, with black paper inner. This album is also available in CD format in a gatefold card foiled and embossed card wallet. This vinyl edition is available to pre-order via Bandcamp and will be available in stores everywhere as of release day.

TRACK LIST
1. Take Good Care Of It
2. I Want You
3. Medication
4. Angel Sigh
5. Walking With Jesus
6. Shine A Light (Clear Light/Clear Rush)
7. Smiles
