It remained their only release……until now – we’re proud to present a reissue on 12″! Beside the original tracks, it contains 3 songs which haven’t been officially released before, including the fantastic jangle pop song “Kymri”!

Four years before Andy released the masterpiece, “A Shoebox Full Of Secrets” in 1989, he recorded these 6 tracks in his kitchen. It’s a big honor for Firestation Records to have the chance to work with one of our greatest heroes on this special release.

Comments Off on Start! – Heute Nacht (Firestation) LP
Formed in 1983 in Düsseldorf/Germany, Start! were obviously heavily influenced by The Jam and the Mod Revival. But they added their very own harmonies and strong lyrics in German creating a very powerful Rickenbacker-driven Mod Pop.
Still today tracks such as „Der Beat“ and „Wie Du Das Machst“ sound as fresh as when they were recorded. Now for the first time on a 500 copies limited edition 13-track LP, you can explore what it felt like to be a Mod in Germany in 1985!
Tracklist: Wie Du Das Machst / Soll Das So Sein? / Heute Nacht / Endstation Mitte / Verstehst Du, Was Ich Meine? / Verstecken / Ein Schritt Zuviel / Der Beat / Tag Für Tag / Julia / Wenn Ich In Deine Augen Schau / Es Ist Noch Nicht Vorbei (Live) / Ein Leben Wie Im Film (Live)

Comments Off on Hardy Boys, The – Wonderful Lie (Firestation) 12″
Limited to 200 hand numbered copies. Reissue of this legendary indie pop-classic! Originally released in 1989 by Stella Five Records. The Hardy Boys were one of the great ‘lost bands’ of the C86 era and that the quality of their songs dwarfed many of their better-known contemporaries, their yearning lyricism and soaring melodies bringing to mind a Glaswegian Smiths.
Tracklist: Wonderful Lie / How Can You? / Fifteen / Harbour Lights
