Item Description
An unknown pleasure torn out of Manchester’s lost DIY manual, this
overqualified/underexposed post-punk pop pillar cast an almost invisible
undetected web across the history of Manchester’s inner-city music scene
which has trapped body parts of The Mothmen, Martin Hannett, Gerry And The
Holograms, John Cooper Clarke, The Blue Orchids, Naffi Sandwich (The Naffis)
and The Fates in its glue.
As a central mast to 1970s/80s Manchester’s “deserted” DIY era, spanning
angular jazz funk, punk and sarcastic synth pop, Spider King has also played
huge parts in Manchester’s honorary adoption of The Velvet Underground’s Nico
(as her lead guitarist), fronted Martin Hannett’s first ever band and inhabits a
key roll in the careers of Sad Cafe, Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias, Paul Young
and AC/DC’s Mancunian debut. With dozens of self-penned songs, unreleased
demos and two of the best collectable Manc punk funk 45s to grace collectors
want lists it’s almost unbelievable (almost tragic) that Mike King never released a
full length album… until now.
Shot To Pieces is one of the most elusive jagged pieces of the North West’s
punk funk puzzle. Recorded sporadically between 1979 and 1983 with a cast of
characters from the Rabid/Absurd label family, such as behind the scenes synth
wielder John Scott from Gerry And The Holograms, and producers like Laurie
Latham (The Blockheads) it’s plain to see why 2016’s current music climate is the
perfect time for the Spider King’s lost music to resurface. Commonly recognised
by stalwarts of the era’s mutating punk/alt/indie genre as “the one that got
away”, Spider King is the archetypal artist’s artist as well as the outsider’s
outsider and the hardest working man in no-business who is now attracting a
whole new audience of champions from bloggers, vinyl nerds and well respected
contemporary musicians with his appearances on mix-tapes and various artist
compilations. On hearing this essential release you could argue that these lost
“spider-grams” are more relevant now than they were when those arachnophobic
A&R men shooed him away over 3 decades ago. For those who ain’t afraid to get
bitten say hello to the Spider King
