Virgins And Philistines
Released on 22/03/10. After the demise of The Fun Boy Thee in 1983, Terry Hall formed the The Colourfield with ex-Swinging Cats member Toby Lyons and Coventry bassist Karl Shale. They released two singles in 1984, The Colour Field and Take , before the release of Thinking of You in January 85 took them into the UK Top 40, reaching number 12. Following the success of Thinking of You the band released this, their debut album, to critical acclaim from the music press. It has since become a collectable and cherished album amongst fans. This long overdue reissue is the first time the album has been released on CD in the UK.

Into The Dragon Plus
Bomb The Bass exploded into the UK singles charts with their debut single Beat Dis in February 1988, reaching number 2. Initially little was known about the people behind the record as it appeared from nowhere and was released on an unknown label, Mister-Ron Records, as it turned out an imprint of Rhythm King Records. Reputedly costing £500 to record Beat Dis was a record of moment, marking the shift away from expensive recording studios to more homemade record making, utilising the increasingly affordable sampling technology that was at the heart of the band's output.

The band went on to produce 3 further albums (with another one on the way in 2010) that refused to be formula or predictable. The development of the sound/direction is a lasting feature of their output.
