A rare and nice album for 80's collectors!

Biography:
Flip were formed in the mid 1980's in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire by Singer songwriters Tony Duke and Frank Walsh. Both Tony and Frank had played in various bands going back to the mid 1970's with their first group 'Tamberlaine'. Tamberlaine soon became Redwood and after recruting lead guitarist Robin Boult, Bass player Pete Trewavas and Ed Rowe on drums. The band's made their debut recording 'Just another Week end' for the 'Aylesbury goes flacid' compilation. Redwood played the London gig scene, usually in support slots during the height of the punk era. The band recorded demo's at Rockfield Studio's including the songs 'You' and 'At the Casino'. Redwood again changed their name to the Metro's finding a support slot with Duran Duran. After the tour Trewavas left to join Marillion and the band split. Duke and Walsh later emerged with a new band and line up that included Gary Duke, Andy Kinch (ex PTO,see these for some more info:http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=108102799 and http://www.esnips.com/doc/09f4be01-fb2f-4702-87dd-6849ef697f7a/Mountain and http://www.herbpayne.com/2007/06/book-page/herb/1977-pto-power-take) and Tristian Batory.
This band became Flip and by 1984 the band were signed to Arista Records, recording an album 'Flip' on 'Private I' records.It was recorded at Abbey Road, Wessex, Sarm and Air Studios and produced by Peter Collins and Colin Thurston. Eric Stewart (10cc) also produced and played on "Love incognito", he also added a solo on the track "Demand". The bands video for the single "Nightmares" was directed by music photographer Andy Earl.Two singles were released on Arista 'Plague of hearts'produced by Peter Collins (Nik Kershaw, Bon Jovi, Brian Setzer, Jewel etc.) and 'That's what they say about love'produced by Colin Thurston (Duran Duran, Talk,Talk etc.),which reached the lower reaches of the UK Singles Chart and also brought the band European success. The band enjoyed success overseas and made appearances on various TV shows in Europe.The Band split in 1987. Both Tony and Andy are still producing excellent music.

Andy Kinch:

"The eighties saw the most commercially successful part of my musical career so far with the band "Flip" ( also called "Touch" at one stage)We made the album (imaginatively titled) "Flip" at the famous "Abbey Road" studios, meeting and working with some of my all time heroes. Eric Stewart of 10cc fame being one, and Kate Bush the other - Wow!!!Eric played guitar and produced one of the tracks "Love Incognito" The other producers were Colin Thurston (Producer - Duran Duran) and Peter Collins (Producer - Nick Kershaw / Gary Moore amongst many). Other musicians included Andy Richards and JJ, both of whom formed part of the Trevor Horn production team based at Sarms East and West studios in London, with JJ being the cornerstone of the band "The Art of Noise"We did most of the recording in Studio 3 at Abbey Road. Amongst the many historical albums made in this studio include the mighty "Dark side of the moon" by Pink Floyd.Three outstanding memories from our sessions there include playing table tennis in Studio 2. Now, for those who don't know, Studio 2 is where all those fab albums were recorded by "The Beatles". It was just unreal, probably the most surreal experience of my life,- just so much history! Also Eric singing a very special version of "I'm not in love" -just him on the studio piano. Thirdly, my encounter with Kate Bush, which is much too personal to go into here, no, this stays private!The band did OK, appearing on one of the last editions of the BBC1 programme "Crackerjack" and the single "That's what they say about love" went to number 1 in Holland.Click the link above to find out about the Andy's Diner CD. It's full of really good songs. Email me if you want to find out more.I hope to carry on doing what I love until I drop, still hoping to write that one truly great song.Love and peace"
Andy (Autumn 2001)


Anthony Duke

"I’m a singer/songwriter of Anglo Irish descent, (My mum was Irish). I’m currently based in the UK, although I’m more than happy to combine my love of music with my love of travelling.
My dad bought me my first Guitar when I was 9, he played banjo and Ukulele, so he showed me a few chords and I worked the rest out for myself.
Although my musical influences are diverse some of the main ones are The Eagles, Jackson Browne, Elvis, The Beatles, plus contemporary artists like Keith Urban and Martina McBride, My core sound is Country - Rock/Pop, Americana with a Celtic feel thrown in here and there.
I’m a member of The Performing Right Society (PRS) and a pro member of The Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI). I’ve worked in most major studios in the UK and had recording and publishing deals with both major and indie companies in the UK, Europe and USA,with songs published by Warner/Chappell and Morrison Leahy Music. Working with co-writers and producers including Peter Collins [Bon Jovi, Leann Rimes etc] Colin Thurston [Duran, Duran], Dave Ambrose [Fleetwood Mac, EMI) D-Side, Eric Stewart [10.cc],Richard Niles and on my most recent trip to Nashville, Grammy award winner Bobby E Boyd. The publishing on my new material is free.
I’m in the process of recording my own EP, which I‘ll release independently later this year, and will be out on the road playing both solo acoustic gigs and some with a full band........I'm in the process of putting the band together, so if you're interested get in touch.
As a Songwriter, writing for other people, in addition to the catalogue of songs I have available for cover…. I’m currently working with several talented artists and co-writers. I’m always interested in exploring new writing, production and development partnerships and have collaborated on several co-writing and recording projects via the internet.
I'll be making regular trips to Nashville. "

"A great pack of pure disco pop fun, containing such gems as "I Like Sugar Candy Kisses", "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe" and "If You Love Me." Luv' may have been a B-level ABBA without a human depth, but while ABBA happens to be one of the greatest pop bands ever, it means Luv' can't be bad. (Something in this Dutch disco project's vocal feel also seems to hint of what was to come by the 1990s girl groups.)"

"They are kind of nice songs to play when you drive a long journey, like from California to New York. They are happy songs and up-tempo, a kind of lifted your spirit and energizing. The sound is excellent. It improved a lot as compare to 2001 release of LUV's greatest hits CD on Universal Music label as well. It must have been re-mastered for this release. Nice pictures too. Sexy ladies in skimpy outfits. All 4 CDs actually should fit into 3 CDs though. Go and buy it, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended."


Biography:
Luv' is a Dutch pop girl group which scored a string of successful hit records in a large part of Continental Europe and also South Africa and Mexico in the late 1970s and early 1980s.In 1976, two Dutch music producers, Hans van Hemert and Piet Souer, and a manager Han Meijer,decided to form a girl group, inspired by the German disco trio Silver Convention.
After the singles My Man (#12 in Holland and a Flemish Top 10 hit) and U.O.Me -Top 5 hit in the Netherlands and Flanders (Belgium),Luv' started it's Luv's international career (1978-1981).The You're the Greatest Lover single was their international breakthrough in 1978 and one million units of this record were sold. Apart from its homeland, Luv' topped the music charts in Belgium, in France, in Germany, in Austria, in Switzerland, in Denmark, in Poland, in South Africa and in Mexico. The follow-up singles ( Trojan Horse (a million seller), Casanova, Ooh, Yes I Do...) were successful. Their albums were big selling records (especially With Luv' and Lots of Luv').In 1978-1979, Luv' was Holland's best export act and received for their works the Export award (2,5 million records) from Conamus, a foundation dedicated to the promotion and support of Dutch music abroad.In Germany, the trio was often invited in two popular TV programmes.In 1979, the three singers, their producers and their new manager (Han Meijer was replaced by Pim Ter Linde who runned Interlinde Management) changed their strategy for better opportunities. That's why, they founded a limited company, Interluv'/Luv' BV , to control every aspect of their career. They chose a new publisher and a new record company (after a deal with Philips Records, they signed a one million Dutch Gulden contract with Carrere, a French label).After the One More Little Kissie single was released during the summer of 1980, Patty Brard suddenly left the band. She was immediately replaced by a model and limbo dancer from the Ricardo and The Flames revue, Ria Thielsch born on August 25. 1951 in Manokwari, New Guinea. Ria was officially introduced to the public when the My Number One single and the Forever Yours album were released in the fall of 1980. These records sold well in Holland and Belgium.In March 1981, the girls and their team annonced Luv's break-up.
Luv' sold from 1977 to 1981 seven million records (singles and albums)
In 1988, the original line-up was reunited for a Dutch TV charity show (Samen). Luv' later planned to record a come back album with the British producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman,however, it never happened.Then, José and Patty didn't want to belong to the band anymore.
1989 - 1992:
Marga Scheide (only original member) and two other singers, Diana van Berlo and Michelle Gold recorded as Luv' a single (Welcome To My Party) which reached the 22th position in the Dutch charts and the 28th position in the Flemish charts in the autumn of 1989. Moreover, the trio was involved with other Dutch girl groups (Frizzle Sizzle, Mai Tai...) in the All Stars project to help Third World children with the Star Maker single. In 1990, Michelle Gold was replaced by another vocalist, Carina Lemoine. During the Gulf War, Luv' performed in Dubai to support the Dutch troops. The formation splitted up in 1992.
1993 - 1994:
Because of the 70's revival due to the success of ABBA and Boney M compilations, the original Luv' girls got together. An anthology CD (Luv' Gold) and a medley single (Megamix '93) were released in 1993 and topped the Dutch charts (respectively #14 and #23 in the hit lists). The ladies went on tour in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Denmark. Then, what turned out to be their last studio album (All You Need Luv') was issued by an independent label (Roman Disc) failed to enter the hit lists. Later, José, Patty and Marga broke up again.
In 2003, to celebrate Luv's 25th anniversary, a double CD compilation (25 Jaar Na Waldolala) was releasedIn 2005, Luv' made a surprise showcase at the 40 year business anniversary of Hans van Hemert. One year later, a docusoap (Back In Luv) about their comeback was broadcast on RTL 5 (a Dutch TV channel) and on VTM (a Flemish channel), a DVD (also entitled Back In Luv) and a 4 CD Box (Completely in Luv with bonus tracks and remixes) came out.Nowadays, Patty, Marga and José perform in TV shows and are often booked for live performances (in discos, private parties, corporate events and festivals). Luv' is one of the few fully manufactured bands of the Disco and Dance era to be on stage with the original line-up (unlike Boney M. and Village People).

Saltyka:
Twelve Drummers Drumming was very popular mainly in Germany,in spite of the fact that they released English speaking albums with an international sound.When they appeared in 1983, they were mentioned together by public and journalists with such great bands as Simple Minds ,Big Country and U2. Strange,but i didn't find reviews for their albums,though these albums are very good. Check the player and listen to their songs,i think you will like them!:)



Biography:
German band Twelve Drummers Drumming started in the autumn of 1983. (Seizing their name from an English Christmas carol “The 12 Days OF Christmas”. The line up consisted of Rudi Edgar (vocals), Kurt Schmidt (bass), Ralf Aussem (guitar), Sibi Siebert (drums) and Colin Drummond (keyboard). Pete Brough, Kurt Schmidt was a memeber of prog.rock band Wallenstein before ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallenstein_(band)) .During the recording sesssions of the first album, Rudi Edgar fell ill due to a brain hemorrhage which he lost his speech and part of his sensory feelings. Miracoulously he recovered and credited that the healing came from God and said “I’d given my life to Jesus in 1980 and now in 1988 I could speak of his healing”. After Releasing 4 albums and a couple of singles. In 1988 two other ex-members of Wallenstein joined: Pete Brough and Charlie Terstappen .The band re-emerged as a new outfit in 2001 called Dead Guitars. 12 Drummers Drummer co-founder Kurt Schmidt alongside with fellow band alumnis recruited ex-Convent’s vocalist Carlo van Putten to record a debut album which is still waiting to be realease. (http://christiannewwave.wordpress.com/2006/10/02/twelve-drummer-drumming/)

Ralf Aussem:

"1982. I met former WALLENSTEIN-basser KURT SCHMIDT & southafrican singer RUDI EDGAR of wave-band VOLKSWAGEN / later changed name into: TWELVE DRUMMERS DRUMMING / 12DD.

1982. so I joined TWELVE DRUMMERS DRUMMING / 12DD. I did the debut 12DDrecording with an old tube radio! & used the E-Bow & echomachines.produced by RAINER ASSMANN at "klangwerkstatt", d.dorf. we also popped in to "conny's studio", near cologne - one mystic night. visiting german producer-icone CONNY PLANK. maniac-drummer SIBI SIEBERT & from liverpool COLIN DRUMMOND (piano & violin) completed our line-up. ALAN BANGS dedicated his two hour radiobroadcast NIGHTFLIGHTon BFBS to ours, without having a record-deal - nor a final band name that time. 1983. few weeks later we got a major-deal with PHONOGRAM, hamburg. 12DRUMMERS debut record came out & we went on tour all around europe & uk with radio & tv concerts.
1984: 12DD went to london, hired a flat in earl's court & recorded in TOWNHOUSE 3 , the old studio of THE WHO, ...unfortunatly our southafrican singer RUDI had a brain-stroke during the production.. and this album never got finished. band & phonogram decided to wait for him...anyhow, after long time in hospital and endless therapy, RUDI came back to life...return to zero.
1988. back home I rejoined 12DD. feat.: scottish guitarist PETE BROUGH, swiss drummer HERMANN EUGSTER & KURT SCHMIDT on bass...and of course RUDI.(met again 2002 in the first DEAD GUITARS line-up -without RUDI)1989/90. we recorded in england for 'half a year', in some of the best studios at that time.with an army of finest engineers. had acommodation at the columbia hotel, hyde park.started the (pre-) production at NOMIS, london..next to jeff beck's rehearsal room.went to oxfordshire.OUTSIDEstudio, hookend manor, ALVIN LEE's & later DAVE GILMOUR's (PINK FLOYD) former property & in london: in MICKY MOST's RAKstudio & mixed it in AIRstudios (beatles) & TOWNHOUSE, shepherd's bush.the LOVELESS album ( phonogram) was produced by great DAVE M. ALLEN, who did some of my alltime favorites with: THE CURE, THE CHAMELEONS & SISTERS OF MERCY...smoking one magic zigi to much he went for mixing the album, just creating a huge 'desk-feedback'. so OWEN DAVIES got the job. we'd known him from london session in '84. all in all it was a rock'n'roll dream, but the expencive production ruined band's future."

Colin Drummond added:
"Hi! Thanks for sharing this excellent blog with the world! Twelve Drummers Drumming was a really special time in my life and I still stay in touch with what's going on with my special friends from the band. I'd like to give you some info about what I got up to after I left the band. I was a member of The Merseybeats (60's band, see: http://www.themerseybeats.co.uk/Merseybeats-biography.htm) from 1985 to 1993, then worked with Denny Laine (ex-Wings), and Trevor Burton (ex-Move) while also operating my own PA Hire business. Stopped playing back in 1999, and currently live and work in South London as an electrician. Life still rocks! MySpace/Musicol
Best wishes, Colin Drummond
