Image: 1592520

A special digi-pak presentation with an album and film of the Godfather of Garage, rocker Jesse Hector.

Collecting together all Jesse’s recordings made during the 1990’s, originally released across a spread of singles and various artist compilations, we present a garage rock album of resounding energy, attack and timeless quality.

Includes the previously unreleased track It Ain’t Easy and the unreleased first versions of Running Wild and Carolina.

The electrifying sound is defined by the atmosphere and vibe Jesse and band created in Liam Watson’s Toe Rag studios where they recorded the majority of the tracks on this album.

Jesse’s profile continues to rise and rise since the catalogue CD releases from ACE, RPM and Damaged Goods put him back in the front line. From full pages on Jesse in Mojo and Uncut, to Facebook groups, to a radio show in the US named after one of his singles.

The film was made by director (and actor) Caroline Catz inspired by Jesse’s profile raise and thus wanting to find out who this person was. It was completed in January 2014, with a final edit by film maker Paul Kelly . An exploration of Jesse, the office cleaner with a 50 year career in rock’n’ roll, and his influence through interviews, stories, and terrific archive footage from the 1970’s.

A number of screenings this year have already promoted the film including the East End Film Festival, the Port Elliot film festival, Festival No.6 Portmeirion, Sheffield Doc Fest, plus individual screenings in Paris, Rome, Barcelona. Erhältlich ab 14.11.2014
