The The Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The The are back baby, with live shows and a new release. But this isn’t just any old middling comeback album: this is a full triple-album box-set! Radio Cineola: Trilogy contains multitudes, from various artists’ interpretations of old The The songs to a narration of epic poetry by John Tottenham, extracts of Matt Johnson’s radio shows, and the electronic score to the new The The documentary. Wow. Available in a variety of elaborate CD and vinyl and book box-sets.

The soundtrack to the film Hyena from The The. This is a twenty track album, along with a hardcover book featuring exclusive material including interviews, photos, and notes from the director Gerard Johnson. Dealing with police corruption in Bayswater and Queensway, it’s an uncompromising movie with a soundtrack to match. On CD from Cineola.

Post-punk, as well as post-Google Search, if you ask me, The The originally released 'Soul Mining' in 1983, shortly after the release of frontman Matt Johnson' sort-of-solo record 'Burning Blue Soul'. This thirty year celebration comes in the form of a big deluxe reissue with plenty of liner notes from Johnson himself. Also, the original music is here, if you want to hear some visceral, despondent post-punk tunes.
