Cherry Red Signs Classic Catalogue, New Albums And Artists

Bookmark and Share

Cherry Red has signed a major catalogue agreement with Rick Wakeman, covering 18 albums from his solo career. The label has also re-signed Mark E. Smith's The Fall for an EP and LP, as well as signing Jack Bruce for a new studio album and a brand new collaboration from Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator) and Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart).

Well known as the former keyboard player from prog-rock titans Yes, Rick Wakeman has also produced over 100 solo albums that have collectively sold more than 50 million copies. Cherry Red has secured 18 titles from this legacy for reissue from early 2014, including 'Out of the Blue' and 'Out There' (live albums with the English Rock Ensemble), 'White Rock II' and 'Softsword'.

The label is also to release a new collaborative album from singer-songwriter Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator) and Grammy-nominated songwriter, soundtrack composer and guitarist Gary Lucas, former co-manager and touring partner of Captain Beefheart. 'Otherworld' will be available on February 3rd 2014 through the Esoteric Antenna label.

In addition, Cherry Red has re-signed English post-punk act The Fall, firstly for their new mini-album 'The Remainderer', released 9th December to be followed by a full length album in 2014. These will be their sixth and seventh releases with the label.

Having previously only dealt with his catalogue material, Cherry Red has also signed former Cream bassist Jack Bruce for his upcoming new studio album. This is to be released in March 2014 under the Esoteric Antenna imprint.

Joining the roster for the first time, Cherry Red has signed eclectic-rock group The Woodentops. Active since 1983, the group's early material saw them considered as one of the most exciting independent groups in the UK. The band is to release new album 'Granular Tales' in March 2014.

Cherry Red's MD Adam Velasco said: "It's a treat to get to work with catalogue as rich as Rick Wakeman's or on exciting new albums from the likes of Jack Bruce and The Fall. Each of these artists shares our philosophy of treating music with the love and respect it deserves, and these deals will spawn some special releases that fans will love."

2014 is set to be another bumper year for the label, with Lawrence's Go-Kart Mozart releasing new studio album 'Mini-Mart', synth-pop duo Blancmange releasing a remix version of their debut album called 'Happy Families Two' in February followed by a new studio album and Marc Almond of Soft Cell fame releasing both a theatrical album 'Ten Plagues', and a new studio album 'Lord Of Misrule'.
