sudden death of stars Getting Up, Going Down (LP, £13.95)label: Ample Play
The Sudden Death of Stars. Think The Byrds, Fairport Convention, Velvet Underground, Spacemen 3, made in Brittany. Ample Play were set to go to a small festival that The Sudden Death of Stars were playing at, but weren't able to make it. However, we were so intrigued with the music that we arranged to meet them the next time we were in France. The rendezvous was a vinyl record fair, rather than having any difficulties finding them, they popped as an instant group. After lengthy discussions over lots of French drinks, the band and Ample Play decided to collaborate. Initially the label was drawn to the integration of the sitar as displayed on ‘Supernovae’, but listening to tracks like 'I'll Be There' we realised that they could turn their hands to anything.
