Metro Trinity
Die Young

The short-lived but much-loved Manchester indie outfit Metro Trinity (whose number at one point included future Doves guitarist Andy Williams) earn a re-issue of their Die Young EP, originally released back in early 1987 on their own Cafeteria label. Here, three of its four tracks are pressed on white 7” vinyl via Optic Nerve. 

Surgeon
Force + Form

Often regarded as Anthony Child's best work, 'Force + Form' collects four meaty slabs of industrial tainted techno together. Cold, minimalist and repetitive bangers which sound like they've been beamed down from aliens from the future. If you're looking for a place to start with the more challenging and harsher tones of techno, then this is a perfect album for you. Surgeon's DJ sets have become legendary too, so if you can catch him at some gritty underground club somewhere, make sure you do so.

Christopher Young
Hellbound: Hellraiser II (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

I could just list all the films that Christopher Young has scored, but I don’t have time, and I’m sure you don’t have time to read it. Fair to say he’s done a few, though, and therefore knows what he’s doing. For Hellbound: Hellriaser II he mixes choirs, electronics and a massive orchestra to create a score that multiplies the terror on screen.

The Skatalites
The Skatalite

The Skatalite is a twelve track collection taken from the archives of popular Jamaican group the Skatalites. Not intended to be a 'best of' as such, the album is more like a sampler featuring the prime cuts from the career of the much heralded ska and reggae band. A perfect place to begin for the new and curious listener.

Patrice Rushen
Posh

Patrice Rushen was perhaps better known as an arranger and pianist who worked behind the scenes with other artists at the time of her 1980 album Posh but she had released a series of low key records under her own name throughout the 1970s. She was working with a small group of musicians who she trusted and it is through loose jamming that the ideas for Posh would come about. She went on to be better known for her subsequent hit Forget-Me-Nots. A classic if ever there was one and a record that Posh paved the way for. 

Embrace
The Good Will Out

Desperately looking for the next Oasis, the industry happened upon the Huddersfield brothers McNamara and snapped up Embrace for mega-bucks in the late Nineties. Their first three albums now get the re-issue treatment, including their 1998 no.1 debut The Good Will Out, housing three anthemic UK Top Ten hits in ‘All You Good Good People’, ‘Come Back To What You Know’ and ‘My Weakness Is None Of Your Business’.

Ulrich Schnauss
Far Away Trains Passing By

German composer Ulrich Schnauss has a number of claims to fame under his belt - there’s his highly respected musician status, of course, he’s currently a member of German electronic legends Tangerine Dream, and he was sampled (illegally, as it turned out) by Guns N’ Roses. Now he’s remastering his whole back catalogue. The latest installment is his 2001 album Far Away Trains Passing By. Fans of Brian Eno, Tycho and Jon Hopkins, take note.

Ulrich Schnauss
A Long Way To Fall - Rebound

German electronic music master Ulrich Schnauss has remastered and re-tooled his 2013 studio album A Long Way To Fall (subtitled Rebound) after recently getting back the recording rights to most of his back catalogue. This double-LP edition comes with re-imagined new artwork from long-term collaborator Nat Urazmetova.

The Monochrome Set
Strange Boutique

The 1980-released 'Strange Boutique' is the debut studio album by Camden post-punks The Monochrome Set. It's almost impossible to pigeonhole. Contrary guitar riffs and madcap drums swirl across the record unexpectedly aside Bid's (lead) crooning vocals. Their legacy as cult classics is still firmly intact, in this statement debut you'll see why.

Surgeon
Communications (2014 Remaster)

Raw early material from Brutalist Techno practitioner Surgeon. Communications was first released in 1996, and carries the full weight of the much loved Surgeon sound. Remastered and re-cut so as to sound even better than the original release, Communications is both a important historical lesson and a set of fresh-sounding bangers.

Arthur Russell
Love Is Overtaking Me

Love Is Overtaking me was probably the point where the Arthur Russell archive digging/barrel scraping should have perhaps quietly stopped.  Some of the tracks particularly in the first half of the record don't do all that much good for his reputation. Dig a little deeper though and there are many gems to be found on this where his unusual structured and off kilter singing makes for some truly affecting music. So it's all worth it in the end. Dig deep, dig long.

Hideto Sasaki
Toshiyuki Sekine Quartet +1 - Stop Over

There’s a lot of Japanese jazz being reissued at the moment, and to back up my claim, this is the 6th Japanese jazz reissue on BBE. This one features Hideto Sasaki, Toshiyuki Sekine Quartet +1 playing their acoustic hard-bop classic, Stop Over, from 1976. If you can imagine Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers powered by recreational chemicals, then you’d be close to imagining the sound in these grooves.

Gang Starr
Jazz Thing

With the original seven inch single, released in 1990, being as rare as rocking horse do-do, Gang Starr’s classic single, Jazz Thing is getting a reissue courtesy of Mr. Bongo. This issue of the single features two versions of the track - the original single version know as the Video Mix and a the Movie Mix. The latter was the version used on Spike Lee’s film, Mo Better Blues.

GoGo Penguin
v2.0

'v2.0' is the Mercury Prize nominated album from Manchester jazz collective GoGo Penguin. Blending modern strains of jazz with hints of left-field strains of the genre and jazz-rock instrumentation, the group create hypnotic melodies underpinned with visceral bass-lines and sweeping rhythms. Part of GoGo Penguin's charm is their ability to incorporate sounds from far afield genres, notably video game music, classical/minimalism, glitch, electronica and prog.

Ghedalia Tazartes
Diasporas

Surreal, avant-garde and resolutely unpigeonholeable, Diasporas was the debut album by Ghédalia Tazartès, a Paris-born musician of Judeo-Spanish and Greek descent. It was recorded in 1977 and had a limited release in 1979. His fans include Stephen Stapleton of Nurse With Wound, who included Tazartès on his Nurse With Wound list, a list of bands that had influenced them.

Peter Davison
Music On The Way

The first in a new re-issue series of albums by ambient composer Peter Davison, Music On The Way has never been made available since its initial release as the artist’s debut back in 1980. It’s a magnificent meld of hypnotic ambient music with early new age stylings, and commenced Davison’s lengthy career composing soundtracks for indie flicks, documentaries and even Disney.

Angelic Music is the second album by American-Greek new age musician, Iasos. It was originally released in 1978, three years after his debut. The album is made up of two long pieces. It has been said that Iasos plays a new age version of classical music. This album is for anyone who is into ambient music and the history thereof.

Tears For Fears
Songs From The Big Chair

One of Tears For Fears best selling albums on picture disc. Reasons to be cheerful. Songs From The Big Chair hit the shelves, and promptly flew off them, in 1985. It contains the singles Shout, Head Over Heels and Everybody Wants To Rule The World. The album is being reissued to coincide with the Classic Albums documentary.

Erasmo Carlos
Carlos, ERASMO

Erasmo Carlos is a thoroughly big deal in Brazil, though somewhat lesser-known in the English-speaking world (damn the Anglophone public’s lack of enthusiasm for non-English pop!). But the albums now reissued by Light In The Attic are not so known even in Brazil, being the records on which Carlos indulged his interests in a variety of genres. Carlos, ERASMO is one of his most personal records and well worth your time.

The Subways
All Or Nothing

The Subways made a splash when they formed in the early ‘00s. They are beginning to reminisce about those early days with a tour and reissues of their early albums. All Or Nothing, their second album,  was originally released in 2008 and was produced by the legendary Nvermind producer and Garbage man Butch Vig. The LP will be pressed on orange vinyl. It’s also available as a 2CD package.

De La Soul
The Grind Date

De La Soul released their seventh album, The Grind Date, way back in 2004. The album was a star-studded affair with contributions from Ghostface Killah, Sean Paul, MF  Doom, Flava Flav, Common and J Dilla. This is De La Soul producing song after song with no messing about in between. All killer, no filler, to quote a certain Deryck Whibley.

Losing Touch With My Mind – Psychedelia In Britain 1986-1990

Cherry Red’s excellent series of box-sets curating various sub-genres and micro-scenes turns to British psychedelia in the late 1980s. While it includes big hitters from the era like The Stone Roses, Spacemen 3 and Primal Scream, the real joy of this 3-CD set is the exhumation of hidden gems from long-lost bands.

Deviated Instinct
Rock 'n' Roll Conformity

Reissue of Deviated Instinct's debut album Rock 'n' Roll Conformity. One of the first wave of bands of the UK's crustcore scene, they played fast and heavy. To give you an idea of their calibre, they regularly toured with the likes of Bolt Thrower, Carcass and Napalm Death. Sick riffs and visceral yelps.

Hiroshi Yoshimura
Green

Hiroshi Yoshimura was an ambient music pioneer but sadly his music barely made it out of his native Japan in his lifetime. His debut album, Music For Nine Postcards, was reissued in 2017 and, along with him being discovered on YouTube, his popularity grew some 14 years after his death. Now we have his groundbreaking ambient masterpiece Green, reissued through Light In The Attic.

AK•79 (40th Anniversary Reissue)

A special 40th anniversary re-issue for the seminal compilation AK-79, which documented the exciting punk subculture that was flourishing in Auckland, New Zealand back in 1979. Featuring tracks from the likes of The Scavengers, The Spelling Mistakes, The Terrorways and Proud Scum, this new edition features liner notes written by scene figurehead Bryan Staff. 

Bon Iver
Blood Bank (10th Anniversary Edition)

Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon followed his one-man-in-a-shed acoustic debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago in 2010 with an EP, Blood Bank. The EP marked a change in sound, introducing new techniques and textures. It is this more experimental sound that has been built on since, as he breaks new ground with every recording. Time to take a look back with this expanded 10th anniversary edition which includes brand new live recordings of all of the tracks.

Robert Forster
Danger In The Past

Danger in the Past is the debut album by ex-Go-Between, Robert Forster. It is turning thirty this year and to celebrate it’s getting a remastered reissue. Forster’s band on this occasion was Mick Harvey, Hugo Race and Thomas Wydler. The album has been praised by BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and music journalist Pete Paphides.

Robert Forster
Calling From A Country Phone

I was still crying about the demise of the Go-Betweens when Robert Forster released his first two solo albums Danger in the Past and Calling From A Country Phone in the early '90s so didn't really give them due attention amongst the tears. Now perhaps is a good time to evaluate them and the second of those records now comes remastered with liner notes and a bonus 7" featuring two tracks that were hidden tracks on the initial CD run.  

Lee Perry feat. Mad Professor / Douggie Digital / Juggler
Super Ape Inna Jungle

Super Ape Inna Jungle is the 37th album in Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s considerable canon of work. It sees him collaborating with Mad Professor, Douggie Digital and Juggler. It was originally released in 1995, but hasn’t been available since the end of the last century. Now’s your chance to relive The Upsetter’s most electronic album to date.

Gigi Masin & Charles Hayward
Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre Volume 2

Though best known for his work in This Heat and Camberwell Now, erstwhile sound explorer Charles Hayward has done plenty else in his time. For example, this 1989 split LP with Gigi Masin. The two musicians were tasked with devising music inspired by their local rivers, which led Masin into beautiful looping melodic ambience and Hayward into a sinister side-long drift piece. First time on vinyl for this rare release, out on Modern Classics.

Desperately looking for the next Oasis, the industry happened upon the Huddersfield brothers McNamara and snapped up Embrace for mega-bucks in the late Nineties. Their first three albums now get the vinyl re-issue treatment, including their 2000 sophomore effort Drawn From Memory, which spawned four UK Top Forty hits in the shape of ‘Hooligan’, ‘You’re Not Alone’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘I Wouldn’t Wanna Happen To You’.

The Daktaris
Soul Explosion

Cheeky white-boy afrobeat revivalists The Daktaris went so far as to assume fake Nigerian aliases for their debut and only album Soul Explosion. The whole thing looks like a crate-digger’s wet dream, but was actually released in 1998. But! it's still one hell of a funky afrobeat affair, it's been remastered, and the folk at Daptone are reissuing it.

The Raincoats
Odyshape

Odyshape was the second LP from post-punk legends the Raincoats and it really is odd shaped music they made. It's the sound of music plunging headlong into previous unseen areas and at times can be a challenging listen but with moments of pure inspiration such as opener Shouting Out Loud. It was notable for featuring a host of drummers following on from a Spinal Tap-esque drummer crisis. When those drummers were of the calibre of the likes of Robert Wyatt and Charles Hayward then it seems to have been a blessing. Marble vinyl edition remastered from the original tapes.    

Kimiko Kasai with Herbie Hancock
Butterfly

Reissue of a previously Japan-only LP here. Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai teamed up with a band led by Herbie Hancock in 1979 to record this collection of covers. Many of them are smooth-as-silk versions, with Kasai’s beautiful voice floating over languid soul-jazz instrumentals. Closes out with a rambunctious disco-funk version of Stevie Wonder’s ‘As’. Nicely restored and remastered by Be With Records.

POLIÇA
Give You The Ghost

Give You The Ghost was the debut album by Minneapolis synth-pop band POLIÇA. It was originally released in 2012. The band have gone on to release 3 further albums, but this was the one that got them noticed, so why not check it out this repress if you didn’t get the chance for the first time around.

Over half a century later and this 6 track stands as a marquee release in the dexterous pioneer's back-catalogue.

Nurse With Wound
Dark Fat

Dark Fat is what happens when Nurse With Wound elect to record all their live performances for a whole decade and then turn their curious eyes to the task of forming some new creature from the audio morass. What we get is a whole new set of compositions: you might catch the ghost of a gig you remember, but don’t bet on it. 

Pink Floyd
Obscured By Clouds

Obscured By Clouds is the seventh album by Pink Floyd and serves as the soundtrack to the Barbet Schroeder film La Vallee. It is being released as part of the ongoing Pink Floyd reissue program and was originally released in 1972. Highlights include Wot’s...Uh The Deal and Free Four which was issued as a single in the United States.

The Pathetx
1981

Detroit punk band The Pathetx were influenced by the sound of West Coast punk, rather than the famous Detroit bands such as MC5 and The Stooges. They had a 16 year-old bass player who had the very punk name Mick Nasty. 1981 is released though Third Man Records. If you like Dead Kennedys, The Germs and Black Flag then this is for you.

Systems E.P. 1

25 years ago this Systems E.P. 1, featuring three cuts from Red Shift, one from Ether, one from Escape Artist and one from Constants of Nature, was too much to handle, clearly way ahead of its time and consigned to the bargain bin. Once people started to get it, though, that bargain bins across the globe were scoured with anticipation of finding a cheap copy. It was harder to find than you might have thought but no fear, its being reissued by Kalahari Oyster Cult.

Miles Davis
A Tribute To Jack Johnson

A Tribute To Jack Johnson is a soundtrack to a 1971 documentary about American boxer, Jack Johnson by Miles Davis. It is thought of as being among the great jazz trumpeter’s best work, which is perhaps not surprising when you consider the backing back was made up of Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Bennie Maupin, Jack DeJohnette and Billy Cobham.

The Star Beams
Play Disco Specials

Known best for their dancefloor demolisher ‘Disco Stomp’, South African ensemble The Star Beams get a re-issue of their previously ultra-rare album Play Disco Specials, originally released in 1976 on JAS Records. Nearly 45 years after it came out, very little is known about the personnel behind this gem, but at least the wider availability will spread the knowledge of this immensely talented group. 

The Handsome Family
Odessa

Still going strong today, alternative country outfit The Handsome Family, formed of husband-and-wife duo Brett and Rennie Sparks, are one of America’s most sorely underrated bands. This year, Loose re-issues their debut album Odessa, originally released in 1994 on Carrot Top, the first time it's been made available on vinyl in Europe.

The Handsome Family
Milk and Scissors

Still going strong today, alternative country outfit The Handsome Family, formed of husband-and-wife duo Brett and Rennie Sparks, are one of America’s most sorely underrated bands. This March, Loose re-issues their sophomore album Milk and Scissors, originally released in 1996 on Carrot Top, and the first time it’s ever been available on vinyl in Europe. 

Gong
Camembert Electrique

Camembert Electrique was the first album by Daevid Allen’s legendary experimental psych-rock band Gong. It was originally released in France in 1971. It didn’t get a UK release until 1974 when the track listing, song titles and timings were all printed wrongly. This reissue, along with giving you the chance to replace a knackered copy, puts those wrongs right. On Charly.

Inoyamaland
Danzindan-Pojidon

Inoyamaland are a new age duo from Japan. Their 1983 album Danzindan-Pojidon is a classic of ambient / environmental / electronic music and, due to this reissue on WRWTFWW Records, is available outside Japan for the first time. If your a fan of Midori Takada’s Through The Looking Glass album or Hiroshi Yoshimura’s Green album, then this is utterly essential.

Mental Cube
Mental Cube EP

Mental Cube were Future Sound Of London in their early years. This eponymous EP was originally released in 1990. Over the four tracks you will find some funky 909 work outs, classic house and the bass heavy In The Mind of A Child, which was intended to be released back in the day as a Mental Cube track, but was released under the name Indo Tribe.

Jon Hassell
Vernal Equinox

Originally released in 1977, Vernal Equinox was the first commercially available work by composer and trumpeter Jon Hassell, later a collaborator with the legendary Brian Eno. The two of them provide sleevenotes for this timely re-issue, now on vinyl for the first time in 42 years and which was named one of the best ambient records of all time by Pitchfork. 

Rema-Rema
Entry / Exit

Rema-Rema were a post-punk group making grindingly groovy tracks back in the early 80s, molding brutality to synth-wave tunes. Entry is a track initially recorded in 1979 but squeezed off that year’s album. We get to hear it now though, the whole thing washed in wonderful feedback guitar, backed with Exit. 12” on Inflammable Material.

King Crimson
Cat Food EP

'Cat Food' appeared on King Crimson's second album 'In The Wake Of Poseidon' released in 1970. That was 50 years ago. To celebrate this milestone it is being reissued with its original B-side cut, Groon as a 10” or CD EP. It also includes a live version of the title track recorded in 2019 and an alternate mix by David Singleton.

Toots & The Maytals
Reggae Got Soul

'Reggae Got Soul' was the tenth album by Jamaican ska legends Toots and the Maytals. It was originally released in 1976. Whilst the album doesn’t contain any of their more well-known hits, it’s still a highly regarded part of their discography. It was mostly produced by the legendary folk producer Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Sandy Denny etc) with Island Records boss Chris Blackwell producing the title track.

John Williams
Jaws (Music From The Motion Picture)

Classic film, classic soundtrack: its Jaws! John Williams’ creeping shark-theme score is literally one of the major cornerstones for any film soundtrack that applies tension, so it's pretty much a must. Here we have a release of Jaws’ soundtrack over two LPs, featuring some tracks that haven’t ever been available on vinyl before! Courtesy of Mondo.

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth
Prince Of Darkness

Often regarded as one of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's greatest scores, 'Prince Of Darkness' is an essential soundtrack for all you lovers of spooky synth music and horror films. Packed with 80s synth-riffing and a bit of Carpenter's trademark DIY eeriness, the score perfectly complements the bizarre supernatural horror film. 

Darwin Deez
Darwin Deez: 10 Yearz

What is this? A re-issue? A re-press? There can't be any sane reason why Darwin Deez debut is being re-issued other than he needs some money to re-perm his hair. He's one of those blokes who began with a song so great that it towers over the rest of his catalogue dwarfing everything else he has done. 'Constellations' is that track and it's the best thing the Strokes didn't do. Still, if you are fan of quirky, scratchy New York pop, you'll find plenty more here to enjoy.   

OXZ
Along Ago: 1981-1989

Dealing in dark and gothic post-punk that was ahead of its time back in the early Eighties, OXZ - an all-female trio in Japan’s underground scene at a time when few women were visible in the entertainment industry - enjoyed a sporadic yet influential career. Along Ago: 1981-1989 collects their entire discography of three EPs and one single on a 12-track vinyl, with seven extra unreleased demos available as downloads. 

Art Taylor
A.T's Delight

Art Taylor is a drummer who has worked with the likes of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk but only made this one album as de facto band leader. He put together a large ensemble to play a combination of Latin influenced jazz and bebop on a mainly covers set containing interpretations of cuts by John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk. 

Elvin Jones
Mr. Jones

If you don't know Elvin Jones then if I mentioned he was the drummer in John Coltrane's Classic Quartet then that might give you an indication of the regard he is held in in jazz quarters. Here he puts together a large band including three (count 'em) sax players on his penultimate album for Blue Note. It's a varied work touching on jazz, latin and post bop and a mixture of original tunes and interpretations. 

Brian Blade Fellowship
Brian Blade Fellowship

You may not know Brian Blade by name but he has been the drummer for the likes of Norah Jones, Joni Mitchell and Wayne Shorter. This was his debut album from 1998 which contained seven slo-mo jazz compositions with contributions from Jeff Parker of Tortoise alongside stellar jazz musicians Melvin Butler on soprano and tenor sax and Myron Walden (alto sax) amongst others.

Yutaka Hirose
Nova + 4

We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want continue to do just that with this new record. Nova + 4 collects a few works by renowned Japanese ambient composer Yutaka Hirose. Hirose’s acclaimed 1986 work Soundscapes 2: Nova appears here with around fifty minutes of previously-unreleased music in tow. These watercolour drones of sparse piano and birdsong are lovely in that Sarah Davachi sorta way.

Early Day Miners
Placer Found (20th Anniversary Edition)

Early Day Miners are a post rock / slowcore band from Indiana led by Dan Burton. Placer Found was their debut album. It was originally released in 2001, although as it was recorded in 2000, so this counts as a 20th Anniversary reissue. It contains all the sounds of classic, guitar led post-rock with the vocals low in the mix, even down to the bleakness of the cover photo. Classic stuff, well worth your time.

Espers
The Weed Tree

The Weed Tree was the second Espers album which featured several covers by the likes of Nico, Blue Oyster Cult and Michael Hurley as well as some interpretations of traditional tracks. It was a grab bag assortment from the psych/folk band who had released their hugely acclaimed debut album the previous year. Now re-issued on Drag City.  

Espers
Espers

While they quietly disbanded in 2009, American psychedelic folk act Espers have enjoyed a cult reputation ever since, with new fans continuing to enjoy the beguiling melodies and textures created by core duo Meg Baird and Greg Weeks. Drag City now re-issues their excellent 2004 self-titled debut album. 

Calvin Johnson
What Was Me

Calvin Johnson is very cool. Not only does he run the seminal K Records but he had a wonderful career in Beat Happening, Halo Benders and Dub Narcotic Sound System. What Was Me was Johnson’s debut solo album, originally released in 2002. It looks like this will lead to a slew of archival releases from the K Records man.

Male
Zensur & Zensur

Dusseldorf-based MALE were one of Germany’s first-ever punk bands, bringing the style and sound of the movement’s first wave to prominence in the city’s underground scene in the late Seventies and going as far as supporting The Clash on a leg of their London Calling tour. Their debut album Zensur & Zensur, released in early 1979, gets an overdue re-issue as a 2xLP package. 

Marcos Valle & Azymuth
Fly Cruzeiro

Brazilian Jazz-funk trio Azymuth and singer-songwriter Marcos Valle once decided to collaborate on a promotional record for South American airline company ‘Cruzeiro’. Luckily for you we've unearthed it from the hazy sun-bleached skies of history. Strap yourselves in for a flight back in time with generous helpings of jazz, funk & bossa nova.

Byron Pope Speed Of Light
Music For Earthdwellers And Starseekers

Byron Pope is an alto sax player and was a professor in Jazz and Blues at University of Washington, Seattle. He has lived in Germany and France. It was in France that he started playing with Burton Greene. He subscribes to his friend, John Coltrane’s school of jazz and was also pals with Sun Ra. His modal / spiritual jazz album Music For Earthdwellers And Starseekers was originally released in 1982 and includes Georges-Edouard Nouel on piano, Roger Raspail (Kassav) on percussion and Chris Henderson (Sun Ra) on drums and was engineered by the legendary Jean-Philippe Bonichon.

He has made music that has skipped through numerous genres - disco, fusion, house, latin, funk, soul - to name but a few. Here, on Mule Musiq, we have a reissue of his jazz album Primeiras Impressões.

The Divine Comedy
A Short Album About Love

Originally conceived as a companion to the previous year’s Casanova album and recorded with a 26-piece orchestra post-soundcheck before a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, A Short Album About Love went on to be regarded by many as The Divine Comedy’s finest hour. It now gets a re-mastered re-issue on vinyl and CD, with the latter coming with a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes plus a DVD titled A Short Film About A Short Album About Love. 

The Divine Comedy
Absent Friends

Originally released in 2004 and containing the Lauren Laverne-starring ‘Come Home Billy Bird’, Neil Hannon’s eighth The Divine Comedy album gets a re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations. CD edition comes with a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

The Divine Comedy
Casanova

Originally released in 1997, Casanova was the commercial breakthrough for Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, housing three UK Top 30 hit singles including ‘Something For The Weekend’.  It now gets a re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, with the CD edition including a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

The Divine Comedy
Fin de Siècle

Originally released in 1998, Fin De Siècle was the sixth studio album by Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, which spawned the band’s sole UK Top Ten hit ‘National Express’. It now gets a remastered re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, with the CD edition including a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

The Divine Comedy
Liberation

Originally released in 1993, Liberation was technically the second studio album by Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, but the star himself refers to it as their ‘proper debut’ because of wrangles over its predecessor Fanfare For The Comic Muse. Including the understated single ‘Lucy’, it gets a remastered re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, with the CD edition including a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

The Divine Comedy
Promenade

Originally released in 1994, Promenade was the third studio album by Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, delving even further into the classical-influenced stylings that he had begun to explore with Liberation and bearing a loose concept about a couple spending a day at the seaside. It gets a remastered re-issue as part of the band’s 30th anniversary celebrations, with the CD edition including a bonus disc of B-sides, demos and alternate takes. 

The Divine Comedy
Bang Goes The Knighthood

Probably the best of the latterday the Divine Comedy albums, Bang Goes the Knighthood features everything we love about Neil Hannon's music - soaring melodies, beautiful arrangements and a droll lyrical persona. The difference between this and some other the Divine Comedy albums is that it is consistent from start to finish. All killer and an accomplished work from a master craftsman. 

The Divine Comedy
Regeneration

Regeneration was the album where the Divine Comedy got serious. Neil Hannon put his Noel Coward hat at the door and made a soaring work that could be compared somewhat to Radiohead (perhaps partly due to Nigel Godrich being in the producer's chair). This new edition contains bonus tracks from the era on the double CD and as a download on the gatefold LP version.
