Statement Of Intent

NO OTHER love little reissue labels that put the music first and worry about sales afterwards. No Other adores psychedelia, garage, folk and country-rock, progressive, funky rock, orchestral pop, hard-rock, ’70s powerpop, soul and funk, chamber pop... and magazines and books that DON'T (always) put The Beatles on the cover!!! No Other is fanatical about quirky cinema, animation and music and culture documentaries. NO OTHER will also work with whatever you throw at us... Nothing is beyond us. Please email for rates.

We love the OLD and the NEW.

If you want to be treated with respect and have your PR campaigns last longer than one week. Contact us now... we're based in North London and happy to meet any prospective clients.

21st Century Schizoid Band DVD review, Total Music

21st Century Schizoid Band

Live In Japan (Gonzo Multimedia)

In these strange days when Pink Floyd cover bands fill arenas and whole holidays revolve around cover bands - the rock festival held at Rhodes being a prime example - a project like the 21st Century Schizoid Band makes perfect sense, especially given that four fifths of the band (Mel Collins, Michael Giles, Peter Giles and Ian McDonald) actually have served in the mighty King Crimson and fifth member Jakko M Jakszyk has an upcoming album, A Scarcity of Miracles, with Robert Fripp and Mel Collins due out in 2011. So impeccable credentials rather than clever copyists, the band further refine this live experience by only performing the seldom heard 1960s and 1970s repertoire of King Crimson, i.e. the more jazzy horn driven stuff, and make no mistake these old buggers can play as a blistering clatter through ‘21st Century Schizoid Man’ more than proves. And for once the extras are also well worth a look/listen including interviews with all the band members, footage of recording sessions for the Official Bootleg Vol. 1 album (oh alright, the studio footage is a bit dull), and some bootleg style footage from their debut performance at the Cantebury Fayre and later at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
