SKINBAT SCRAMBLE – VOLUME ONE

Recordings from 1982 to 1993.
Gothic 80s feel with drum machines and sequencers throughout. Studio quality sound from mutant "future" blues to prog/improvised psychedelically tinged wanderings and proto-religious grandeur, and a splendid "front-room recording" acid-house precursor (Basement Voltaire). Features a splendid "sermon" by Big Joe Louis, and a magnificent acoustic guitar solo by Phil Mills.

TRACKS:
Asleep In The Bath / Skidaddle (Daddy) / Chinooks / Lonesome (No More) / Desert Shaped Yards / Andromeda / Skidaddle Dub / Basement Voltaire

We present for your listening delight, DESERT SHAPED YARDS:

SKINBAT SCRAMBLE – VOLUME TWO

Recordings from 1983 to 1984.
Studio quality 80s "pop sound". Nice boys, and the occasional girl, struggling with the new (1980s) decade amidst the post-punk wasteland of electronic drumkits, bouffant hairdos and Fishermen's Jumpers, and signally failing to fit in.

TRACKS:
Fleshy Ravens (Love Orgy) / Pincushion / Submit / Drive Her Like A Car / Skeleton Crows / Submit Dub / The Day Ferg Forgot / The Long Ache-It / Old Chap!

Recall, if you will, the OLD CHAP! and listen to him speak here:

SKINBAT SCRAMBLE – VOLUME THREE

Recordings from 1981 to 1984.
Studio quality, more of the 80s sound but with a surreal overtone and a feminine touch on some of the lead vocals courtesy of a Jacqui of Shake Shake, followed by a mega-drone guitar meltdown, and a sinister Post-Industrial Leeds Art School snippet.

TRACKS:
Let's Get Fascinated / Circuits / North by Northwest / North by Northwest Dub / Facilities / Circuits (Electric) / Tint Mapping / Germanium / The Andersen Shelter / Churchill Treatment (Edit).

SKINBAT SCRAMBLE – VOLUME FOUR

Recordings from 1986.
Front room demo quality, the start of hypnotic backing tracks and an intense, chaotic female lead vocal and frenzied fuzz guitar interlace, accompanied by the "Teach-Yourself-Spanish Class" from the "Other Side". Nothing else like it on the planet. High gothic to Low Halloween. Features 70s musician and Computer Games Industry Music Maestro Richard Joseph.

TRACKS:
Train Music Part One / Train Music Part Two / Evenings / Marlene (My Strictest) / Flute Transpose / The People Upstairs / The People Downstairs / The People In The Walls / Uhuhu / Sort Out All Your Troubles / Eggplant (Drama Whales) / Train Music Part Three

SKINBAT SCRAMBLE – "REMAINS"

Studio recordings of songs from 2008.
The first fruits of the Skinbat Scramble resurgence, following the re-convening of the coven with live shows at the Tunbridge Wells Forum. Powerful, psychedelic and hypnotic, the band veer between spaced-out beauty and threatening clearing-in-the-woods paranoia.
With the lineup of Mark, Gary, Nicky, Carl Gent (ex of Mumm-Ra, and currently of the Old Dolphin Brigade), Piers on drums and Imogen on spooky vocals and bass, this robust, vital incarnation of the Scramble delivers its first CD/Download.
The album was recorded and mixed at the Granary.

TRACKS:
Integration - UFOUK - Radiator Heaven - George IX - Starfields - Metal Way - The New Black/Peppermint Schnapps - The Chancery - Gutshot/Coda - Ringmain Dancer - Stop Trying So Hard - Camel Lights.

Until we run out, the CD will be accompanied by a limited edition badge and signed by the band...
