MAKIN' TIME Rhythm And Soul LP Milky Clear Vinyl
RELEASE DATE NOVEMBER 27 2020
- Largely remembered today as the first group of future Charlatans’ main man Martin Blunt, Makin’ Time emerged as a breath of fresh air from the 1980s mod scene.
- Younger than the revival bands that had gone before, instead of watered-down punk their music was a glorious mix of power pop and 1960s pop and soul.
- Signed to Eddie Piller and Maxine Forrest’s Stiffdistributed Countdown label, the band were seen as a possible contender for pop crossover and given a full-on recording and marketing budget. The album that emerged was the vibrant and exciting ‘Rhythm and Soul’.
- The band were fronted by the bob-headed, powerful voice of organ playing Fay Hallam and guitarist and vocalist Mark McGounden, these two, along with Martin Blunt, provided a strong set of self-penned songs. A dynamic band live, ‘Here Is My Number’, ‘Feels Like It’s Love’, ‘Only Time Will Tell’ and the other self-penned numbers were already fan anthems by the time they were recorded.
- This reissue is the first time the album has been available since its original release.
