ONLOOKERS -Blue and Green and Tangerine CD (Detour 49) Lush unreleased '81 mod garage-pop

ONLOOKERS -Blue and Green and Tangerine CD (Detour 49) Unreleased '81 mod garage-pop: 19 tracks

H2D: Impressively lush 1981 recordings that point equally toward '67 freakpop and jangly mid-80s garage-pop.

Detour: "Polydor’s A&R man Dennis Munday (who worked with The Jam / Style Council and Siouxsie & the Banshees) had wanted to sign the band to Polydor back in 1981. Fast forward 20 odd years and the group themselves believed that all their original recordings had been lost in the mists of time. Luckily for us, Dennis had actually held onto those recordings on a cassette tape and better still the quality was remarkably good. With some help from Martin Kelly of Heavenly Records - who'd been a massive fan of the band at the time and seen them on several occasions - the recordings were cleaned up, restored and compiled to startling effect.

The Onlookers emerged from the late 70's early 80's Mod revival scene but by the time the recordings on this CD were made the group had blossomed into one of the era's most interesting and gifted bands with fantastic songs and an image to match... They managed only one 7" release - the highly sought after 'You And I' on Demon Records in 1982, but the group has gained a cult, almost legendary status over the intervening 30 years. Their songs and sound as fresh today as they were back then. Whilst bootleg cassettes and CD's of live concerts have served only to fan the flames of interest - only rumours existed of an album of demo's that the Onlookers had recorded for Polydor with Jam producer Vic Coppersmith-Heaven."

Here's those 19 tracks and the original artwork planned for the LP (designed by Paul Kelly). Full colour sixteen page booklet crammed full of rare photos, press cuttings, gig flyers and a comprehensive history of the band by Martin Kelly PLUS additional sleeve notes and commentary from Rick Blackman, Eddie Piller and Brian Kotz.
$14 Tracks:
You And I / Julia / You Know Everything / Houseman / Someone's Daughter / Now I'm Sleeping / Chieftain / Duty Call Me / Still She Waits / Good Friend Of Yours / Mystic Surrounds Me / Understand / Windsor Castle / Lonely Lady / Thinking Of You / Round And Round / The People There / Things Remain / Houseman (with strings).
