The Courteeners frontman, Liam Fray, went on a little jaunt around the country playing acoustic shows. Inspired by this, and to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut album, The Courteeners have decided to re-record St. Jude in an unplugged stylie to make St. Jude Re:Wired. LP and CD on Ignition.

9/10 Some guy Customer review, 7th February 2018
When i first heard this 10 years ago, it was so fresh, the second coming of the Smiths almost, the next great Manchester band. An absolute ripper of an album, immense track after immense track. The original 2008 Polydor LP has become somewhat of a collectors item, very scarce and highly sought after, and so it should be. A fantastic debut LP. Sadly, it's all been downhill since then. This is the ONLY Courteeners album you should own. Nice artwork of Audrey Hepburn too, done by front man Liam Fray himself.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 27th December 2017
The Courteeners are a four man band from Manchester in the UK and this is their first album. Sonically, they remind me a bit of The Coral, or even The Smiths, especially on bouncy numbers like "No you didn't, no you don't", or the brilliant "If it wasn't for me" (fantastic riff and semi-shouted lyrics). They have a retro sound which comes out especially on the beautiful ballads "Please don't" and the more melancholic "How come".
Do they live up to all the hype? A few jagged moments and ok songs aside, I think they do.
