Now We Are Ten
Midline-priced label sampler CD with seven exclusive tracks. In the past ten years, Trunk Records has issued some of the most beautiful, extraordinary and unusual lost music you may have ever heard: consider this release a compendium of your most favorite lost treasures. A decade ago, and after a three year search, Jonny Trunk tracked down and finally released the Wicker Man soundtrack. It had never been released before, and its influence is still rippling through contemporary music today. Shortly after, Trunk brought you the first-ever release of Kes, the pastoral soundtrack to Ken Loach's bleak Northern tale. They followed this with some sex, and the first (and possibly last)-ever airing of the lost tapes by legendary '70s porn star, Mary Millington, which sold out in two days. Next came the gentle, cosmic soundtrack to Oliver Postgate's classic animated TV-series The Clangers. The album caused an odd, nostalgic stir and scored a faultless ten out of ten in NME. Trunk put out the incredible lost music from George A. Romero's classic zombie gorefest Dawn Of The Dead, and issued the unreleased fuzzed-out sounds from classic Brit biker movie Psychomania. Trunk then uncovered the radiophonic's electronics from The Tomorrow People, issued an album of way-out Christian madness, and followed it all up with some magical period advertising recordings. Where else could you find the soundtrack from Bod sitting comfortably in the Trunk catalog alongside legends like Deep Throat? Oh, and don't forget Dirty Fan Male, voted by Time Out as one of the top ten comedy albums of all time. The label also brought to light Basil Kirchin, the godfather of ambient music and the main influence on Brian Eno, and have recently brought the vintage film music of Norwegian film composer Sven Libaek to new light. And don't forget Fuzzy Felt Folk, a sublime compilation of simple folk for children and their slightly odd parents. This celebratory release brings together some of the most beautiful musical moments dug up, cleaned up and distributed by Trunk Records over the last decade. It also contains seven unreleased recordings from albums still to come on the label, including an incredible lost recording by Herbie Hancock. Trunk Records: truly one of the eclectic greats. Other artists include: Basil Kirchin, Sven Libaek, Jonny Trunk, Delia Derbyshire, Douglas Wood, Vernon Elliott, Orriel Smith, Mike Sammes, Paul Lewis, John Cameron, Marc Wilkinson, The Michael Garrick Trio, Dirty Fan Male, Barbara Moore Singers, Wisbey and Hula Saw.
