Maximum Joy To Release Compilation ‘I Can’t Stand It Here On Quiet Nights’


Maximum Joy are to release a compilation of their singles on the newly formed collaborative label- Silent Street from Chris Farrell of Idle Hands and Kiran Sande of Blackest Ever Black. 

Formed at the start of the 80s, Maximum Joy are one of Bristol's finest post-punk exports, heavily influenced by jazz, afro-beat, disco, dub, soul and early hip-hop creating arguably some of the most exhilarating pop music ever made.

35 years on, and the music of Maximum Joy still sounds as fresh as it did when an 18-year-old Janine Rainforth formed the band alongside Tony Wrafter, Charlie Llewellin, Dan Catsis and John Waddington.

'I Can't Stand It Here On Quiet Nights' will be the first UK, vinyl reissue of some of their singles and will include 'Stretch' a track that went on to become an anthem of the undergound scene in New York.

Listen to 'Stretch' below.
