1. ANNE MARIE HURST
We’re proud to announce the first solo album from the former Skeletal Family and Ghost Dance singer! Anne Marie is backed by original Skeletal Family members Trotwood and Stan Greenwood. The album also features guests PAUL WELLER and OCEAN COLOUR SCENE’s Steve Craddock.
Skeletal Family regularly topped the UK indie charts in the 80’s and toured with the likes of Sisters Of Mercy and Siouxsie & the Banshees. Following two albums they split, and Anne Marie Hurst formed Ghost Dance, who signed to Chrysalis for a national chart album and toured with The Ramones.
Now, after a 20-year hiatus, Anne Marie is reunited with Skeleton Family founder-members Trotwood and Stan Greenwood for this new album. It features guest appearances from Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Craddock. It was recorded at Paul Weller’s studio, and mixed by Steve Carey of The Eden House.
Anne Marie and the band have been gigging across the UK and Europe over the past two years, showcasing both her back-catalogue and new songs, rekindling her strong fan-base.

2. BONE ORCHARD
The first time on CD for this cult Post-punk / Gothic / Psychobilly 80’s band from Brighton. A comprehensive 17-track anthology of the best of their series of Jungle releases, PLUS DVD with seven video promo clips + seven archive live performance tracks, and 12-page booklet with 1,000-word history by Grave Jibes webzine editor and the Inca Babies' Harry S, plus lyrics and photos.
Bone Orchard grew out of an alternative Brighton nightclub ‘Subterfuge’ run by singer Chrissy McGee in 1983. John Peel gave them a session, which led to a record deal with Jungle. Their debut 6-track EP ‘Stuffed To The Gills’ was followed by ‘Swallowing Havoc’, and the album ‘Jack’, on which they added violin and piano, with a bluesier, jazzier sound. Their final Jungle release was ‘Princes Epilepsy’ 12”. They gigged with The Birthday Party, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, Alien Sex Fiend, Johnny Thunders & The Meteors, and issued a mini-LP on their own label before splitting in 1986. This compilation includes the best of the Jungle recordings on CD, and seven video promos, plus bonus live footage on DVD.
Four of the video promos are new on Youtube. Here’s links to two of them (you’ll find the other two in ‘related videos’) -
