180-gram gatefold double LP

Double LP set featuring 21 tracks recorded for John Peel's Radio 1 show during the band's early years. Presented on 180-gram black vinyl.

One of the most acclaimed British rockers from the 1980's, this legendary band formed in Liverpool in 1978 and were forefathers of the neo-psychedelic movement. Their line up consisted of vocalist Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sergeant, bass player Les Pattinson and drummer Pete de Freitas, eventually replacing the original drum machine.

The band's cult status eventually waned with mainstream success in 1983 after they scored a U.K. Top 10 hit with "The Cutter" and attendant album Porcupine which hit No. 2 in the U.K. 1984's album Ocean Rain is considered a landmark post-punk release, featuring the lead single"Killing Moon."

The band split in 1988 but regrouped in 1997, releasing an album in 2014 that was their first U.K. Top 40 entry since 1999. The band's popularity never quite made the same impact in the U.S. as it did in Europe so they are ripe for rediscovery for anyone interested in bands such as Suede, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Blur, Interpol and Oasis.
