The JASMINE MINKS, the first band to be signed to Alan McGee’s fledging Creation Records label back in 1984, they have announced their new 7” single on blue vinyl, to be released via A Turntable Friend Records. The line-up is the same as on the very first recordings with Jim Shepherd, Martin Keena, Walter ‘Wattie’ Duncan, Tom Reid and the former Television Personalities keyboardist Dave Musker and Tom Reid . The sound of this double A-side is as good as if the band had recorded them at the peak of their popularity some 30 years ago.

Back into mighty fine form, the legendary Jasmine Minks return to the scene with two new tracks, captured on vinyl as it should be. First one is “Step by Step”, it is backed with “Gravity”. Engineered and mixed by Pat Collier. The double A-side 7″ on very limited blue vinyl in a thick cardboard sleeve is released on March 22nd.

The Jasmine Minks have been strongholds in the British music scene since forming in 1983 in Aberdeen. Stereo Embers Magazine notes that they are “one of the most venerated indie rock bands of their era… their work is both timeless and canonical. Led by the positively ageless vocals of Jim Shepherd, the Jasmine Minks sound as vital as ever..
