Welcome to Marmalade Skies

 


...Thanks for your votes!!!...

Marmalade Skies is primarily dedicated to British psychedelia of the 1960s, featuring some of the groups and films that appeared during this wonderful period of time. However, on occasion MS will also feature Prog Rock, Folk-Rock, Glam-Rock and any other type of Rock that I fancy (Seaside Rock...Mmmm!) In addition, expect the odd geographical deviation, e.g Australasian Psych.  All contributions are welcome. Thanks for your support. Hope you enjoy the trip.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the 2nd Tri-annual Greatest British Psychedelic Pop Song Of All-Time  Poll! The results were broadcast on the Rose Coloured Glasses on Radio Cabin on 11th December 2013. If you missed the show don't worry as it can be downloaded from the RCG Playlist page. I haven't listed the results so as not to spoil the tension when you listen to the show! Hope you enjoy it...and the previous poll show can still be downloaded too. Just scroll down a little or go to the Playlist pages (links below too)

Marmalade Skies is kind of 'on hold' for the present time as I don't have the time for major updates. However it will still be here for reference.

Many thanks to everyone who sent in their votes to the MS GREATEST BRITISH PSYCH-POP SONG OF ALL TIME POLL. I played the Top 30 songs, plus a few more of the top choices on my show The Lighthouse on Sunday 12th December 2010 between 7 and 10PM (GMT) on a very, very small station.  If you missed the show, it can be downloaded here: http://rapidshare.com/files/436670357/lighthouse121210.rar 

For more downloads...scroll down a little for links...

 Rose Coloured Glasses is a show I present on Radio Cabin Wednesdays 7-11pm UK time. Curently I'm also presenting The PMT Show (Poets Minstrels & Troubadours) Thursdays 9-11pm repeated Sundays 7-9pm

RADIO CABIN - WWW.RADIOCABIN.CO.UK 

Playlists and recordings of the Rose Coloured Glasses shows are HERE

The old (2009) MS Radio Show Playlists and some recordings are HERE

Playlists and recordings of The Lighthouse are HERE

The PMT Show - recordings/ playlists are HERE

Please note that show recordings regularly  suffer from infuriating cuts where the internet stream went down temporarily. 

Anyone who's recently tried to download our Trip To Toytown set and been disappointed because the links are dead, please have a wee bit of patience as I have new links which will be shown here very soon. 

I've just added a page with pics from the official Programme of the Krumlin (Yorkshire) Festival of August 1970: HERE

Seeing as the download of NSU by Wages Of Sin has been so popular, I've added an mp3 file of the other side of the single, Hey Joe, to the Wages Of Sin page

It's about time we had an MS page dedicated to the God of Hellfire so I bring you (courtesy of Nick Warburton) The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown HERE, and don't forget the page dedicated to Dream Magazine legends Svensk HERE

I'm still ploughing onwards with Remember The Times 2. I've reached February 1975. Maybe it'll be finished this year. Maybe not...

If you're a fan of music from the Beat, Psych, Prog and Acid-Folk era (1963-76) then you'll certainly be interested in a fantastic new book "Galactic Ramble". Where the "Tapestry Of Delights" book dealt with facts and lists, "Galactic Ramble" gives opinions on the musical worth of hundreds of records that were released during this classic period for Rock and Folk music. Over 500 pages packed with reviews both old--from vintage music papers--and new--from a panel of recognised experts and collectors, plus much more. It's edited by Richard Morten-Jack of Sunbeam Records. Details on how to obtain a copy are given in the Spontaneous Marmalade Creation

Don't forget to check out Nick Warburton's great podcast "Turn Me On Dead Man" here: http://www.turnmeondeadman.net/Podcasts/NWSRM/  and his website, which features many more great articles, including a new, updated piece on The Penny Peeps. Go to http://www.nickwarburton.com/wordpress/ 

Check out the Spontaneous Marmalade Creation for details on how to buy a great "Our Technicolour Dream" poster.

 Meanwhile, of course, if anybody feels inspired then all contributions to MS are gratefully received. Please send your comments to me at mick@Capewells.co.uk

Announcements, requests, news, complaints etc now appear on the SPONTANEOUS MARMALADE CREATION (thanks Arthur!)

Just one final point though...PLEASE DON'T ASK ME IF I HAVE 'SUCH AND SUCH' AN LP IN STOCK. MARMALADE SKIES IS NOT A MAIL ORDER FIRM. WE DO NOT SELL RECORDS, COMPACT DISCS, DVDS OR ANYTHING! IN ADDITION, I'M SORRY BUT I CAN'T MAKE COPIES OF THE COMPILATION ALBUMS MENTIONED ON THE SITE. I JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME. TRY ASKING IN THE REGAL ZONOPHONE OR CHERRY SMASH GROUPS.

 

Cheers, Mick Capewell

BILLY REEVES' NOSTALGIA OF THE FUTURE

http://nostalgiaofthefuture.podbean.com/ - Before they were famous..

Some of your favourite pop stars and middle-of-the-road singers of the 80s started their career in the 60s. So, for your edification Martin Horsfield has bought in some of these rare 45s - fledgling recordings, skeletons in the closet and early efforts - so we can have much fun guessing who's singing! Martin is an old chum from those heady NME days of the 90s: and he plays this kind of bonkers 45 at his stompin' club Rock 'n' Roll Soul. So: thumbs in belt-loops, notepads out, earholes open - scratch that noggin and dance! Billy Reeves.

http://nostalgiaofthefuture.podbean.com/ is a weekly Podcast which will pop up on your iTunes every week if you subscribe (for free) via the little purple icon on the right of the above website. Or you can listen on your computer (just give it a minute to load). It's a bit silly, very groovy and much fun; and listening to it makes you immediately fashionable.
