Stripped down to just Martha Johnson and Mark Gane, and assorted studio musicians, Martha and the Muffins worked closely with producer Daniel Lanois for the third time. And, once again, it was a very successful combination.

The legendary masterpiece of the 80's New Wave genre is finally out on CD more than 20 years after its original vinyl release.

This record sprang from the ashes of Canada's top New Wave band, best known for the rousing single "Echo Beach". The original band had two Marthas, and one of them (Martha Ladly) had gone solo under the name "Martha". But the remnants of the original band distilled upon the lead singer Martha Johnson and lead song writer and guitarist Mark Gane. And from this turmoil came startling freedom.

"Double Negative" is the playful title for The Muffins' second release after their early 90s reunion. The genius remains the same and so does the iron will to deliver refreshing challenges in the area of progressive rock; the technical mediums are different in the sense that they are enhanced, and so, the band's taste for impressive textures and refined instrumental interplaying can be better conveyed to the listeners' ears than in earlier albums. In fact, this album incarnates the sort of sound production that this band always deserved…

After being away from the public's eye for nearly 20 years, The Muffins released the fine comeback CD Bandwidth in 2002, and as they finish work on their next album, to be titled Double Negative, the band has released this DVD of a concert at Orion Sound Studios from September of 2002. Playing songs mostly from the Bandwidth and Manna/Mirage albums, plus a few new tunes from the soon to be released CD, the four members all prove to be in top form, showing that the time spent apart has not hindered their musical capabilities together as a band…

Somewhere between National Health, Soft Machine, Henry Cow, and the original Mothers Of Invention lies the sound of this album by The Muffins. The music is primarily played by four core multi-instrumentalists: Billy Swan, Paul Sears, Tom Scott and Dave Newhouse (of course it helps to let Wayside Music/Cuneiform Records owner Steve Feigenbaum play on the album). The result is a wonderful journey through sometimes improvised, sometimes tightly written, jazzy rock music…

The Muffins are Canterbury influenced quartet formed in Washington D.C. in the year of 1973 by Dave Newhouse (keyboards, reeds), Billy Swan (bass) and Michael Zenterner (guitar, violin). The new group remains nameless until one day, while the trio are discussing upon potential names, a friend of there's enters the house and shouts "The muffins are hear!" and conveying a tray of blueberry muffins, thus the band is born! A number of drummers are recruited off and on during the next few months. In the fall of 1974, reediest, Tom Scot joins The Muffins, moves in with band, starts to rehearse and Dave starts to compose new material…

After three years of waiting since her seminal Sister funk hit single "2 Kinds Of Men", Record Kicks finally presents Stop Look Listen, the 2016 debut album from the new Oporto soul diva Marta Ren & The Groovelvets. Anticipated from the first single "I'm Not A Regular Woman", produced and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by New Max from Portuguese funk combo Expensive Soul and mastered in NYC by Andy Vandette, Stop Look Listen is pure dynamite and follows the best tradition of the Soul Sisters of the 60s. Marta Ren, not surprisingly described as the new Marva Whitney, brilliantly supported by her super tight eight-piece rhythm and soul combo The Groovelvets, serves you 11 tracks of pure fire and takes-no-prisoners. From the floorshakin' opening track "Don't Look" to the mellow feel-good anthems "Smiling Faces", "So Long" and the afro-tastic "Be Ma Fela", the Portuguese combo deliver a visceral deep funk album, proving that they're the new 'real deal'.
