• fuchsia Song (coloured vinyl double 7", £9.75)

    label: Fruits de Mer Records

    Celebrating 50 years of recordings by of Fuchsia’s main man, Tony Durant. The original ‘Fuchsia’ album was released in 1971; sometimes referred to as psych-folk, it continues to be reissued and acclaimed as a groundbreaking LP, described by MOJO magazine as a ‘forgotten classic’. Tony returned to the 'Fuchsia' sound a few years ago, and continues to write and record great songs. He has put together a double 7" of tracks that cover his 50 year musical history - starting with a track from a 1967 acetate from his first band that made it into a studio ('Louise', which included Chris Cutler in its line-up), onto brand-new and exclusive recordings from his next album, and taking in 'Fuchsia I' and 'Fuchsia II' along the way, including the epic ‘Nothing Song’ from ‘Fuchsia I’. The FdM double 7" is called 'Song' and comes housed in a silver gatefold sleeve; it also includes a special insert that should be of interest to fans of the band and, strangely enough, Egg (a cover of their first LP was released by FdM earlier in 2o17) - a reproduction of the 24pp programme to a gig staged by the Ottawa Music Company, who included the members of Egg, plus Fred Frith, Chris Cutler and Tony just before Fuchsia got into full swing. The double 7” contains: 1.Look At The Sun (by Louise) 3:30 2.The Band 3:20 3.The Nothing Song 8:10 4.Piper At The Gates Of Time  4:16 5.Fuchsia Song 3:57 6.Box Of Destiny 4:53 7.Just Another Song 3:13
