Nothing sleevenotes

As followers of The Distractions (UK) facebook page will know, David Quantick has kindly written and interviewed for the sleevenotes that will accompany Nothing. These feature insight from some key names, many of whom were instrumental in the late '70s, early '80s Manchester scene - the likes of Mick Middles, Kevin Cummins, Cath Carol, Liz Naylor, Kevin Hewick and Tracey Thorn as well as Mike, Steve and Alex. Stunning original artwork - a feature of all Occultation Recordings' releases - will also adorn the record. As mentioned here, this forthcoming album, The Distractions' first on CD, will feature:

- Doesn't Bother Me
- Nothing
- Maybe It's Love
- Too Young

- Time Goes By So Slow
- Pillow Fight

The 1995 recordings:

- Black Velvet
- Where Were You When I Needed You
- Still It Doesn't Ring
- Good Girls Don't Get To Paris
- I Thought You Were Dead Josephine
- The Land of Opportunity

Watch this space and Occultation's website for details of Nothing's release.

  1. Fantastic, really looking forward to the old/new releases not to mention the sleeve notes. They have been badly missed, by this music fan at least, and its a travesty that the band never got the real recognition they deserved. But there again anyone reading this already knows that! Cracking job on the website as well....
