Velvet Jones' debut album Colin is a stylish fusion of '60s chamber-pop and post-punk, filled with dark textures and exuberant pop melodies. Considering the group's ambitions, it shouldn't come as a surprise that their reach often exceeds their grasp, but the best moments - the eerie "Window," the mean-spirited "Exclusive" and the bratty "80 Foot Ego" - illustrate that Velvet Jones is a band with enormous potential.
Velvet Jones is re-releasing their debut album ’Colin’, a record that almost set them on the path to seminal status in the 90’s UK Indie scene. This largely undiscovered gem undoubtedly would have been one of the breakthrough records of 1998, but was cruelly stopped in its tracks by a badly managed record company. The hype surrounding Velvet Jones at the time was massive as they were frequently lauded by industry heads as potential successors to high priests such as Suede, Radiohead, Placebo and Subcircus.
Loaded is the fourth studio album by American rock band the Velvet Underground, released in November 1970 by Atlantic Records' subsidiary label Cotillion. It was the final album recorded featuring founding member and main songwriter Lou Reed, who left shortly before its release. Loaded was ranked 110 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
