New Age Steppers - Avant Gardening
Avant Gardening collects New Age Steppers' rare dubs, version excursions and unreleased tracks from 1980 - 1983.
On-U Sound have gone through the tape vaults to put together this special record of unreleased versions and rarities from the white-hot early days of the New Age Steppers, the group that launched the label by appearing on both the first single and album.
Highlights include a restored track from their infamous and long-lost 1983 John Peel session (an ebullient cover of Atlantic Starr’s ‘Send For Me’ featuring a beautifully spirited vocal performance from the much-missed Ari Up), the Jah Woosh deejay cut of ‘Love Forever’, some rare dubs previously only available on Japanese import CDs, all book-ended by two very different takes on Chaka Khan’s ‘Some Love’.
An essential set for collectors of post-punk, dub and other outernational sounds.
