Ginger Wildheart Hosts Exclusive Album Listening Party Today – Friday August 19th at 5.55pm GMT

GINGER WILDHEART 

Hosts Exclusive Album Listening Party

Friday 19th at 5.55pm GMT 

Ginger Wildheart

This Friday evening August 19th at 5.55 pm, Ginger Wildheart is hosting a very special listening party on Pledge Music, so please tune in here http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/round-records . You can also join in the fun on https://twitter.com/GingerWildheart with the hashtag #valor

For new listeners and old supporters, we’ll be having a listening party of my first three solo albums, this Friday (remixed/remastered).”

The Ginger Wildheart albums being played are :

Valour Del Corazon (remastered)
Yoni (remixed and remastered)

Market Harbour (remastered)

I can honestly say that I’ve never listened to these albums in over 10 years. It’s just something I never do. Now, with two albums having been remastered, and one remixed and remastered (the always sonically lacking Yoni) I’m genuinely excited to be going back to hearing these new versions together with you.

And now, by using the hashtag #valor, I can finally read exactly what those songs mean to you. And vice versa.

I’ll be keeping my book handy for reference purposes, and I expect many questions from you about those albums, those songs and those times. 

We all shared them. Let’s share them again, this time together.“ – Ginger 

The albums are all released digitally on Friday 19th on the Round Records Pledge page and will be later released as a physical box set.

Round Records Logo

Round Records’ is the new record label from Ginger Wildheart – a home for Hey! Hello!, Mutation, live albums and DVDs from The Wildhearts and more. It’s arguably Ginger’s most ambitious project to date; moving from stand-alone individual releases to a fully-fledged record label. PledgeMusic is proud to be partnering with Ginger and Round Records Records for fans to pre-order new releases and access a host of extra and exclusive offers.

My last project was launching a fan club, to make people excited about something that most of them never had a chance to first time round. The obvious next step was to make people genuinely excited about a record label, just as with Stiff, Sub Pop or Def Jam. A label where the logo is as iconic as the music.

Round Records, as a concept, has been my baby since 1996. Now I can show it off to the world as brand new enterprise that ditches the old record company policies of ownership and contractual obligations.

I am very excited to bring the new Round Records Pledge campaign to you all.

But this time around it’s a Pledge campaign with a difference. We’re bringing you box sets, live DVD’s, live CD’s and exclusive merchandise. All coming at you via the ‘Round Records’ brand.

The next release will be the eagerly awaited second Hey! Hello! album – Hey! Hello! Too! 

This is the first time that the full band have recorded an album together, and we’re very proud of the results. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

All release dates have been specified next to the items so you can see in advance when to expect things turning up on your doorstep!

This is something new, something fresh, where the audience is the boss. 
Together let’s push things forward.”  Ginger

To start things, the Round Records label releases include the following:

• The Wildhearts – PHUQ Live ( out now )
• Hey Hello – Hey! Hello! Too! ( release 23rd September )
• Ginger Wildheart – Solo Album Boxset (date tbc )
• Mutation – Mutation III album (date tbc)

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
