Long Tale Recordings

So, as I was saying… there was this guy talking about this new retail theory and how it impacts on the marketing of music in the 21st century. He was banging on about the interweb and downloads so I thought we should harness the new tricknology and do something real positive with it.

It’s time we came up with a more sensible way for Artists to make money – what with this new fangled multi media world imposing a new world order. I figure we should find our rightful place in the pecking order and find a way to get our creations to the consumer hungry public.

So we came up with the Long Tale concept. A label, marketing device which would enable credible Artists to get their work to people who really appreciate what they are doing. It would also help make sure that the cash that the consumer pays finds its way to the Artists who created the work. Rock on Long Tale!

Axis of Ignorance Cover

  • Electronic, Dance
  • Tj Rehmi
  • 07/27/2009
  • Axis of Ignorance
Liner Notes: The world's music has been blended into the unique guitar playing and electronic wizardry of tj Rehmi. Rehmi is the ultimate fusionist. Comfortable with eastern and western music. He seems to glide from east to west and back again effortlessly creating wonderful contemporary music that is steeped in thousands of years of tradition. The Axis of Ignorance was composed during the Iraqi Invasion and these were Rehmi’s musical reflections on this period in history. The title says it all. On listening this album has wonderful qualities. Its one record with the volume on 2 and a completely new album with the volume on 10. This is a magnificent record but much better as a whole piece of work than on an individual track by track basis. As Bobby Friction said - Rehmi made his studio weep! Licensing@realworld.co.uk

  • Bittersweet
Liner Notes: Until now David Rhodes has been more than content to be the supporting artist in the shadows, a few paces back from the main attraction. As well as his lengthy tenure on the shoulder of Peter Gabriel, David’s also been an in-demand session player, his fluid guitar lines adorning the records of Tim Finn, Talk Talk, Paul McCartney, T-Bone Burnett and even Roy Orbison. Then there’s the sizeable soundtrack work he undertakes with musical partner Richard Evans (The Footnote), much of it for documentaries on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic. They have also scored a Giant Screen movie for Nat Geo (Sea Monsters) and worked on a number of films with Peter Gabriel. On Bittersweet: "I had a small collection of songs that I’d worked on for the last two or three years and once I’d got them into a good enough state, I just thought “‘These ten tunes are quite strong. Let’s see what people think." DR.

Liner Notes: This album throws itself to World Music Lovers everywhere and flaunts amazing rhythms from the infectious and obvious ‘Big Bhangra Beats’ to flavourable Favela samba. Boasting the smoking hot bhangra tunes from the album and the now infamous ‘TDF Intro’. This was included as they have been staging this tune as an opener for their live shows. ‘Naa Karde’ & ‘Desi Peeni’ are bhangra songs by a renowned vocalist from Punjab by the name of Surinder Saini, which are two amazing songs that have the bhangra thunder you expect from TDF. ‘Favela Dog Funk’ is a complete cross between the ever electronic Blocko Electro and The Dhol Foundation. This track is all about the way beats from two different worlds infuse together to create an incredible song and dance.The rest of the album has an edge over other World Music albums due to the amazing mix of technology and live musicianship put together in a way that only TDF now how!
