about

Re-mastered by original Producer John A. Rivers. One of the great lost UK albums of the early-80s. Beautiful melodies, haunting lyrics, lovely playing. File next to Virginia Astley's 'From Gardens Where We Feel Secure' and In Embrace's 'Passionfruit Pastels'. Bron Area was a British duo formed in 1979 in Nuneaton in England. Originally the group consisted of Martin Packwood and Steven Parker who had been involved in a number of bands before starting Bron Area. Steven had been playing piano for 4 years and sang in a punk band Addix through '77. Martin had played 'My Way' to drunks in social clubs on the organ for some time. They recorded their debut cassette album for Ambivalent Scale Recordings in 1980 with the title 'One Year'. The album featured experimental sound mixing raw electronic collages with post punk sound. The band's first official Single EP 'Fragile Sentences' was released in 1981. David Barker of 'Glass Records' approached the band after having heard 2 songs from the Alternative Sounds fanzines compilation tape Facet 1 and asked them to appear on his 'Wonderful World of Glass Vol. 1 LP'. Bron Area were signed to 'Glass' at the beginning of 1982. The first vinyl was a 12" Ep entitled 'Different Phrases' released in March '82 and later released as a 7" on 'Posh Boy Records' in the USA. With the release of their second record few more musicians were recruited which changed their music and gave the their following LP 'The Trees and the Villages' which appeared in 1982 a fresh new sound. Contains 2 bonus tracks not on the original vinyl LP 'Different Phrases' & 'You Would Be Amazed'. Download Includes pdf booklet.
