Richard Hawley's Jukebox, CD (£12.56)

Ace are thrilled to be working with seminal singer-songwriter, toast of this year's Olivier Awards and all-round Sheffield legend Richard Hawley on this, the first volume of a compilation series of some of his favourite singles. These are a choice selection of 28 7''s that Richard has collected on his travels around the globe, through friends, family, collectors, word of mouth, thrift shop finds, pub jukebox gems and all that's in-between. Richard refers to the glue that joins these selections together as 'Little Bangers' as they are all mini hand grenades, bright lights that explode and fizzle out, some big names, some rarities, some lost souls, some obscurities, some by artists he actively enjoys knowing almost nothing about other than they want to get him on his feet and dance. Many are garage instrumentals, exposing the guitar-line as lead melody and the art of telling a story without lyrics.

As Richard puts it, 'I’m fascinated by the 7-inch single because of the discipline of it.  A 7-inch single can only contain a certain amount of information...  So, you have to learn the discipline of cramming all that information and craft into a short space of time.  If you imagine this album as a piece of bacon, there’s absolutely no fat on it at all.  It’s just juicy meat.  There aren’t flabby recordings, they are very nimble.'

We're extra proud that the Hendrix Estate have allowed us to include Curtis Knight & The Squires' ferocious and never previously licensed 'Hornet's Nest' which naturally we proudly kick off with and the pace never slackens, taking in the Shadows, Link Wray, The Troggs, The Champs, Jimmy Gordon and so many more besides. It's joyful, it's relentless, and you can listen to it on repeat for a thousand miles. To give Richard the last word, 'My advice to everybody, is keep on the surfboard, motherfucker. These records have kept me on my surfboard for decades, you know what I’m saying?'
