FISHFOOD VS.THE BIRTH OF SHARON
Release Date: 14/02/2014
Catalogue No.: ARC269V
Record Label: Bristol Archive
Format: 12" Vinyl

As the 1970s blurred into the 1980s, Bristol's music scene burst into life with a myriad of separate scenes springing up across the city, reggae, jazz, power pop, jazz funk and post punk. Many of the latter were part of what was called the Clifton set, named after Bristol's most famous Georgian suburb where they mostly lived, played and held court. Alongside the better known Clifton bands, The Pop Group, Art Objects, Glaxo Babies, The Startled Insects and Rip Rig And Panic was Fishfood and its singer Andy Fairley. The three Fish Food tracks are the earliest originally released in 1981 on the innovative "Bristol Recorder 2" compilation. The rest of the tracks are previously unreleased and date from three years later with Andy's second band The Birth of Sharon. The music itself is experimental and avant garde, a mixture of influences from reggae to Captain Beefheart, from krautrock to industrial, from punk to funk, genuinely cutting edge; experimental there were no boundaries to their creativity.
