Derbyshire 3-piece, The Cycle Paths, have now released their debut E.P. "Last Tram to Halfway" on Dizzy Holmes' Detour Records subsidiary, Paisley Archive. It features five tracks, "Last Tram To Halfway", "Living With My Guilt", "Time To Say Goodbye", "Getting Better" and "You Must Be a Devil". Formed in the Summer of 2011 with a shared love of Soul, R'n'B, Garage, Freakbeat, Mod Revival and Sixties Beat, guitarist Stace Rose, bassist Ian King and drummer Andy Hardwick, have put together a tight and energetic unit mixing catchy original songs with a selection of choice cover versions. On the new E.P. the band have tried to capture Stace's trademark buzz-saw guitar and rasping vocals along with the raw energy of their live shows. You can order copies of the "Last Tram" E.P. at the Paisley Archive web-site or via iTunes, but be quick about it, as it's a limited pressing of only 200 copies.
The Cycle Paths are one of many great bands on Paisley Archive/Detour Records, some other recent releases include the debut album from Retro Man Blog favourites, The Past Tense. The labels are heavily supported by Alan May's excellent "Glory Boy Radio" show on 6Towns Radio (live every Sunday from 7pm-9pm). I'll be doing a feature on the scene surrounding Glory Boy and Detour Records and some of the associated acts, labels and club nights very soon.
