Demon Music are happy to present - Electribe 101 - 'Electribal Memories'. This stunning 4CD extended version with crucial remixes, extended versions, radio edits and original band demos. The deluxe was compiled by club culture historian Bill Brewster. Both formats come with new sleeve notes by Billie Ray Martin, a rapturous essay by Pete Paphides and original photography from the era. Formed when Hamburg-born / London-based, sometimes S' Express member Billie Ray Martin hooked up with four musician / producers from Birmingham, Electribe 101 instantly hit upon a sound heavily influenced by the de rigueur deep house sounds of Chicago and Detroit but with a distinctive European twist. With Billie Ray up front, with a voice like ice on fire and looking as if she'd stepped forward in time from a circa-1966 Mary Quant catwalk, the band were instantly snapped up by Mercury Records, and taken under the wing of Pet Shop Boys manager Tom Watkins. The band released five singles in the UK, and all featured on their debut album 'Electribal Memories' - 'Tell Me When The Fever Ended', 'Talking With Myself', 'You're Walking', 'Lipstick On My Lover' and an incredible cover of Odyssey's deep soul classic 'Inside Out'. Remixes came courtesy of such electronic luminaries as Frankie Knuckles, Larry "Mr Fingers" Heard and Mantronix. When the album arrived in 1990, it was an instant hit with critics - immaculately produced, poised, luxurious and soulful, it was difficult to believe it was a debut record at all. After 'Electribal Memories', Electribe 101 called it a day. Since then, the album's reputation has grown in stature and many of it's' singles' attendant remixes have become sought-after rarities. The cultural earthquake prompted by the late-1980s arrival on these shores of house, acid and rave prompted many a legendary club night and a generation of superstar DJ / producers. While there were a myriad of great club tracks produced in that heady period between 1988-1991, classic albums from the scene were rather more of a rarity. One towering exception was the debut by Electribe 101
