Re-mastered at Abbey Road Studios by The The's Matt Johnson and packaged in a lavish 12" box, this vinyl-only release includes an authentic reproduction of the 1983 release on 180-gram vinyl, plus an extra 12" gatefold vinyl of alternative versions and remixes.

The box set also includes a unique 'news-poster' containing extensive notes written by Johnson that detail the making of the album

It's a well-worn cliche´ to describe music made by passionate, maverick souls as "timeless" but on visiting the songs of The The, it's hard not to think of them as complete outsiders. These unique, prescient, fevered songs resonate with basic truths about the human condition and seem to exist beyond the perishable dictates of fashion and style.

The The is, and always has been, Matt Johnson. Though his creative life was nurtured under the sodium glare of London's street lamps in the late 70's and early 80's, reacting to punk and fighting against the trite Thatcherite pop of the early MTV era, there's a vast scope within the material.
