FLRs producer/songwriter Russell once shared the same New York management as David Bowie. During this period the two ex-Brixton boys compared notes. Bowie loved both of Russell’s new productions of Lady Grinning Soul and Cat People.
The Mod Tunes: Three Button Legacy album features 20 tracks produced by Russell Writer and released by the label over the past 20 years. It has some classic artists including The Lambrettas, Eleanor Rigby & The Reaction. Among the songs are anthems Mod Girls by Eleanor Rigby & Mod Boy by Misty Woods. Also there are a number of cool themes that are of special interest to Mods including 5:15 & Get Carter.
The album is on download.

A new talent we discovered recently were The Babysitars. They are a throwback to the sort of output Stiff records used to knock out in the late 70's early 80's. My Two Minds Are 8 miles High has eight finely crafted rock songs worthy of anyone's attention and if you are into Joe Meek there is a special treat for you!
Along with the three Bowie covers the 80’s themes album also features great covers of Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, Bladerunner, For Your Eyes Only, Pretty In Pink, The Living Daylights, The A Team, Hill Street Blues, The Blues Brothers, When Doves Cry, Call Me, Dynasty and Alien.
You can hear one track from each of the above three releases below. More tracks can be found on the bands' pages or at the bands' MySpace links. Numbers by Psykick Holiday is followed by Meet Joe Meek/Crazyhead by The Babysitars. Finally I'm Not Like Everybody Else by Eleanor Rigby was taken from the album Mod Tunes: Three Button Legacy.
Here we offer an album brimming with the instrumental versions of many of our most popular themes! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
It's often been said that Box Office Poison tracks sound equally as good as instrumentals - so there are several BOP offerings on this album.
There are also some exciting and classy Bond themes and other exclusive gems on this 20 track compilation, including Ska Surfin at 5-0 by Ministry of Ska.

And finally TA DAAAH!! What many of our fans have been clamouring for:
The Future Legend Records Singles Album - a compilation of ALL the singles released by FLR since it's inception. Totally unmissable....
We have always been huge fans of John Barry which is why we have recorded so many of his wonderful tracks here at Future Legend. This album brings together all those tracks in one offering. Enjoy...
With a track listing of haunting and innovative sounds and pop noir style lyrics, this is bound to please those alternative music fans out there that are looking for something a little bit different from the run of the mill bland radio fodder.
Suck it and see!
As you know, Future Legend Records is world famous & synonymous with doing great new versions of Cult TV & film themes. They started the trend back in the 90s and released six popular 'decade' specific albums (‘60s, ‘70s & ‘80s) attracting many high profile fans along the way, including David Bowie (who loved the cover of his track on the ‘80s album), Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys and composer John Barry - who even said some of the Bond theme covers were better than his.
It was thought no more cult themes albums would be released but we have decided to put out one final album to meet customer demand. The track listing of this new album includes many unusual gems, some of which are very hard to get hold of even by the original artists.
The album is an eclectic but imaginative reinterpretation of many themes, including a Flamenco style version of Pulp Fiction’s Misirlou and Joe Meek style productions of two Gerry Anderson themes - Fireball XL5 and Aqua Marina (from Stingray). The tracks range from catchy songs to experimental soundscapes and an interesting musical adventure awaits the listener. Click underlined link to find out more on the Cult Themes Forever page!

FLR is known to have released many limited edition collectible releases (some now deleted and changing hands for big money). Although streaming & download is now the norm many hardcore themes fans have said they much prefer to have a hard copy CD of this release, so we have made a limited edition of just 500 copies of shrink-wrapped CDs. They won't hang around long so if you want one get your order in now! The album will also be on download if that is your preference, and when the CD hard copies have sold out that will be the only way to get it. We don't plan to do streaming of it at this stage (but may do so in the future).
The price is just £7.99 UK or £9.99 (Outside the UK). Includes P&P Please select the correct payment option in the Paypal button below for UK or Outside UK. For any queries feel free to drop us an email at [email protected]
