about

Emotional Rescue returns to what it does best by unearthing musical gems of the British post punk scene with a double pack compilation of Bristol’s short lived Recreational Records.

Teaming up with Bristol Archive Records, 10 songs are remastered, reissued and cut loud for DJs and collectors. What is most striking is, although created in the space of just two years, with a disparate collection of artists, musicians and producers coming together, the music holds a considerable cohesive sound.

Set up in 1981 by Bristol based shop, Revolver Records, Recreational was formed as an independent label with its own distribution, as part of the co-operative, Cartel. The label was a natural progression from the shop’s punk’s DIY aesthetic, acting as a hang out and inspiration for local artists from Mark Stewart to later staff member, Daddy G.

‘Get It Right’ starts with a one-off project in Scream + Dance, who similarly, alongside local bands Glaxo Babies, Maximum Joy and Rip Rig & Panic, explored post-punk with funk and jazz all underpinned with heavy tribal and dub influenced rhythms. ‘In Rhythm’, with its infectious groove, acts as a call to arms for the compilation, coming in two parts, the latter dropping away to explore the links with dub.

Next is possibly the label’s biggest band in Talisman, going on to be active up to today, their release ‘Run Come Girl / Wicked Dem’ are both featured in long 12” mixes that explore the classic ‘discomix’ of vocal and dub in longform.

Animal Magic lead with the pack’s title, ‘Get It Right’ a short-driven punk funk burst that captures the label’s sound to perfection. However, much of the compilation is given over to the more experimental side of the bands, with a high percentage the B sides where they headed to the mixing desk for echo chambered dub inspired versions.

X-Certs’ ‘Untogether; Electric Guitars’ ‘Don’t Wake The Baby’ and Animal Magic’s ‘Trash The Blad’ are culled from the flips of various 7” singles and all are a fusion of percussive rhythms, studio trickery and dub inspired techniques, played out against the “Do it Yourself” aesthetic of the time.

To complete is London based, soukous, kwela and afrobeat inspired collective, Ivory Coasters’ ‘Mungaka Makossa’ and two rhythmic curveballs by Scream + Dance in ‘Giocometti (Wicked Mix)’ and their riotous (and short) closer, ‘In Pink & Black’. “Get it right this time, get it right!”.
