Hailing from Dallas, Texas, The Demands were originally called The Fabulous Furys in college

summer. They cut the tunes for this single in 1973 with legendary North Texas engineer Phil
York, originally pressed on Clem Records, original copies of this Northern Soul burner change
hands for upwards of 600 bucks in good condition. The Demands had a moment of on screen
fame in ’73 appearing in the Blaxsploitation film “Fox Style” as the house band at an outdoor
fashion show. Band leader/founder Melvin Clemmons passed his bass duties to his brother
around ’79 so he could run his own nightclub and The Demands kept gigging until around ’89
when they disbanded.
Side A Say It Again is an up Northern Soul number equal parts hi energy and good vibes. A
sureshot for the soul parties, and a very welcome opportunity to put this obscure tune into collections.
Side B’s Let Me Be Myself is a smash of a ballad really showcasing a different side of the
groups writing and performing abilities. The sweet soul folks are in for a treat on this one, sure
to make it to all the lowrider enthusiasts mixes. Available from 05.05.2017

Tortoise – The Catastrophist Tour Book (Ltd.CD+Buch)
Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Tortoise – The Catastrophist Tour Book (Ltd.CD+Buch)

Image: 1611549 Photographer Andrew Paynter on the project :
This book came about from the long term relationship I’ve had with
both this band and their label, Thrill Jockey. I frst came to meet some of the
members through mutual friend, Tommy Guerrero. Over the years I started
to contribute occasionally as a creative collaborator. The band used several
of my photographs for their ‘Lazarus Taxon’ packaging. Then, in 2010 they
commissioned me to both direct a music video from ‘Beacons of Ancestorship’
and to also art direct & contribute images from my ‘SF Lines’ work. The band
also used other images for additional 12 inch records and then seven years
went by. I did think often about the idea of going on the road with them, but
was patiently awaiting a return to the stage, as they took a long break between
records. So the idea to do something long form became a reality. Once it
was set, I organized to jump on the road with the band to cover the entire
West Coast of North America and with an addition of a trip to Arcosanti,
Arizona. I brought three cameras, Leica M6, Hasselblad X-Pan and a Pentax
67. I only shot b&w flm and I kept my ideas simple and did my best to not
force situations, but to simply capture them from the perspective of an insider.
My craving to shoot from the hip in a reportage fashion was fnally fulflled on
this 10 day project. I’m proud to say, this is my very frst book.
Tortoise’s Douglas McCombs on touring and the live experience:
Twenty fve years ago in the early days of Tortoise there was a
perception that we were a recording project. This perception was probably
exacerbated by the fact that we barely played any live shows in the frst three
years. The reality is that we were slow in getting our band up and running due
to a variety of logistical circumstances, internal and external.
Performing live was always a priority and a prime motivator in forming the
band in the frst place. By the time opportunities arose for us to tour in a self
sustaining manner we couldn’t have been happier. This is what we wanted to
do, and thankfully the audience showed up.
Presenting our slightly unconventional material was occasionally a challenge.
We had to lug around more equipment than your average band and often
had to deal with temperamental synthesizers and samplers that would fail at
inopportune moments. Still, it was exciting and very rewarding.
These days a band at our level makes most of our living by playing live shows.
It’s no secret that record sales are substantially lower than they used to be. At
the same time we are all maintaining families that we didn’t have twenty years
ago which makes organizing a tour exponentially more diffcult. Still, every
time we step on a stage we are trying to invest ourselves in the performance as
much as possible so that we can give the audience a unique experience. We
want you to know that we consider it a privilege to play our music for you.

Simply put, Tortoise has spent nearly 25 years making
music that defes description. While the Chicagobased instrumental quintet has nodded to dub, rock,
jazz, electronica and minimalism throughout its
revered and in?uential seven-album discography, the
resulting sounds have always been distinctly, even
stubbornly, their own.
“Chicago’s Tortoise is a genre unto itself: cited as a
progenitor of post-rock, and clearly indebted to its
home town’s history of improvisers and fusionists,
Tortoise is an American underground institution.”
– Boston Globe Available from 22.09.2017
