YARDLEYS, THE- Star Club 7"
Ok, we know you’ve heard the word “Hit!” more than once from us in the past and maybe you think it’s getting old. But fact is we have once again unearthed some incredible gems that will instantly become your new (old) favorite single! From Long Island, New York, The Yardleys managed to put out three singles in their rather short but highly inspiring career that took them touring all over Europe under the management of Clive V. Epstein – the surviving brother of Brian Epstein, the man who managed The Beatles during their meteoric rise to fame. Gracing the same legendary club stage at the Liverpool Cavern as The Beatles did, The Yardleys were actually the very last band to perform at the club before it shut down. The group also performed at the second iteration of the infamous “Star Club” in Hamburg, Germany. As everyone knows, the original Star Club launched The Beatles European career so what better venue to inspire the band to write their song “Starclub”? Avid Power Pop listeners will immediately sink their teeth into the song’s catchy sing along chorus, killer guitar riffs and melodies that reminds the best of other UK and European Power Pop bands of that era like The Kidda Band and The Rousers, for example. Originally, “Starclub” was released in 1979 with “2184” on the flip but we’ve opted to revise history and make this brilliant toe-tapping, bonafide hit paired with three unreleased songs from the “Lost England Tapes” sessions that were recorded while the band was on tour in England. Now, with this bucket of songs, the never-ending debate that constantly opposes UK and US Power Pop fans against each other is over! The Yardley’s “I Need You Tonight” and “Bad Bad Boy” are both solid US Power Pop rockers that ooze legit British suburban sounds and are sure to please die-hard UK and US Power Pop troops on both sides of The Pond while ‘’ Girls Have Fast Hands Too’’ is a fast rollicking power pop rock’n’roller! Come along and let us take you down to the Star Club where it all began! Limited to 300 copies housed in a generic Meanbean company sleeve with an added band promo shoot postcard. Just a friendly Reminder, YOU NEED THIS MORE THAN EVER!
