MacKenzie Sings Orbidöig – Ice Cream Factory (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th September 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

“Ice Cream Factory” was the debut solo single by Billy Mackenzie (Credited to MacKenzie Sings Orbidöig) released in October 1982. Written by fellow Dundonian, multi instrumentalist and, new collaborator Stevie Reid. Billy Mackenzie stated that “Ice Cream Factory” was a hilarious swirl of semi-surrealist fantasy that blended, in the tradition of Associates masterpieces like “A Girl Named Property”, elements of classic pop with an eccentric modernity. It was shiny, white and superb and it flopped.

39 Lyon Street, The Associates – Kites (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 14th September 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981

A. Front

“Kites” was a one off single released on May 11, 1981 (Credited to 39 Lyon Street). Taking advantage of a clause in their contract that allowed them to record for other labels as long as Billy Mackenzie did not sing lead, they produced a version of Simon Dupree and the Big Sound’s 1967 hit, with vocals from Billy’s old friend Christine Beveridge. (Beveridge and another old partner in crime Steve Reid, performed together as Orbidoig. Billy took to announcing that Christine was one of his favourite singers, much to her embarrassment.) 39 Lyon Street was the address of Christine’s Dundee flat.

An edited version of “Kites” appears on The Associates compilation “Singles” as far as I know the full length 12″ version has not appeared on CD.
