During 1993 we released the following three 7" singles on our label imperial
ria101-THE WAKING HOURS
A - What You Don't Know
B - I'm Falling Down
A trio from Richmond Virginia playing classic power pop with a b-side
that brought to mind early Aztec Camera. This single was released on their
own label in the US & on Elefant records of Spain. Our copies came on
gold vinyl & complete with poor label stickers.
ria102 - ERIK VOEKS
A - Throw Me Out A Line
B - When Will It All End?
A UK release for a single that originally appeared on the Bus Stop label
in the US. Since then Erik released another Bus Stop 7", an album "Sandbox",
a single on Parasol last Xmas with a new album to follow. Our copies came
with free Erik Voeks balloons.
ria103 - Western Mere
A - The Street That I Am On
B- Where's Andrew Never Before
Western Mere were in fact one person, zoe, ex-member of Derby band Peru.
Produced by Jyoti from White Town it features 3 lovely songs of just voice
& guitar. Reviewed in Melody Maker as a being a Brighter wannabe, we knew
then it was time to give up! Initial quantities of the single came with
a free key-ring.
