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. Check Twitter for past reviews

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.

Mark & The Clouds 'Waves' (Gare du Nord)

 


Release: 14th May 2021
Format: CD/Digital
 
Since relocating from his native Bologna (where he played in cult Italian band Gli Avvoltoi) to London in the early ’90s, Marco Magnani has been a stalwart of the city’s underground scene where ’60s pop and folk meets psychedelic rock. His previous band Instant Flight worked for several years as the backing group of Arthur Brown as well as releasing a string of meticulously crafted and well received albums themselves.

Now with Mark & The Clouds as his current lineup, Magnani continues to write produce and release great psych pop n roll records, with a list of bandmates and collaborators from the UK/Spanish/Italian psych music scene and centred around the three-piece nucleus of Marco on vocals and guitar plus John O’Sullivan (Instant Flight/The Snakes/Limozine) on bass, vocals and guitar, and Shin Okajima on drums (Shin and Marco formed The Smokers in 1994). 

 

Waves is Mark & The Clouds’ third album release, following on from Blue Skies Opening (2014) and Cumulus (2017) – both on Mega Dodo Records. 

Tracks feature guest brass players Tom and Joseph Hammond, keys from Rachel Kashi and violin from Maya Kasparova, and was recorded and produced in London through 2020.
