Product Description

CD Description

The Wildhearts released the original Fishing for
Luckies in December 1994, in a limited edition
available only via their fan club. The songs were
newly recorded and featured the lineup of Ginger
on vocals and guitar; C.J on guitar and vocals;
Danny McCormack on bass; and Ritch Battersby on
drums. Gordon Mabbett contibuted accordion on
"Geordie in Wonderland" and Marc Fox played
additional percussion on "Do the Channel Bop."
After the top 10 success in the UK of the album
P.H.U.Q. in 1995, East West Records planned to
release an official version of the album, to be titled
Fishing for More Luckies, with three extra demo
tracks. The only change to the tracks from the
original fan club release was a count-in to introduce
"Do The Channel Bop." Of the added tracks, a
completed version of "Underkill" was later included
on the Sick Of Drugs single. A string quartet made
up of Charles Mutter (violin), Thomas Norris (violin),
Bruce White (viola), and Phillip Sheppard (cello)
appeared on Saddened .
This 2 CD collection contains all the b-sides from
the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains
notes by Classic Rocks Jerry Ewing and extensive
artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era,
all approved by Ginger himself..

As far as I can make out from the little book, this is a re-release of the fan club exclusive 'mini-album' of the same name. 'Mini Album' used loosely here as the album is at least a standard rock album length and many of the songs go past the 6 minute mark. This was not released as a CD you could buy inb the past and has now obviously been rectified.
'Inglorious' gets the album going and is a ripper. Melodic intro, heavy punky riffs, a catchy, memorable chorus and loads of variety in vocal delivery. 'Schizophonic' and 'Do The Channel Bop' are two other lengthy but strong and catchy punk tinged songs with a lot of melody underneath. The album also includes the classic singles (or videos at least) of 'If Life is like a Lovebank, I need an Overdraft,' the shamelessly self-confessional and brutally honest 'Sick Of Drugs', the catchy 'Red Light, Green Light' and the hurdy gurdy, almost Celtic-sounding 'Geordie In Wonderland.' On top of those is a song that is occasionally performed live; the epic 12 minutes of prog rock/metal that is Sky Babies.
The weakest song by a country mile is the dissappointing 'Nite Songs.' Although it starts off great for the first 1 minute and 40 seconds, and sounds like its becoming a great build up to an epic, mellow, acoustic number...it stops...is replaced by around 5 minutes of silence and then 15 pointless minutes of someone laughing being looped over and over again!! A waste of tape if ever there was one, and something that occurs with monotenous regularity on 90's rock albums. What makes it worse in this instance is that Ginger bigs the song up on a Kerrang! interview within the sleeve further compounding my dissappoint with this song that I hadn'y heard before and was looking forward to hearing.
