Now For A Feast : EXPANDED 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION - Pop Will Eat Itself

Now For A Feast : EXPANDED 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
In 1986, Pop Will Eat Itself burst onto the UK and European independent scene with a flurry of energetic, punk infused singles, including their self pressed and distributed debut, Poppies Say GRRrrr! and others released by Chapter 22. During that year they became mainstays of the UK music press and blazed a trail towards the hip-hop tinged direction they would take with their second album, Box Frenzy . This set charts this first year of the band's career, including seven previously unheard demos and live cuts from the band's own archives and a number of later b-sides. Including a previously unreleased song ( Summer Girl ), early incarnations of tracks re-recorded and released in later years and demos of the impossible to find debut EP by Wild and Wandering (the name the band operated under before becoming PWEI), this really is a treasure trove for fans and collectors.

Produced with full co-operation and support from the band members, and including both an essay and sleeve-notes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole, as well as never before seen archive shots and press clippings, this package is the first in a series of Cherry Red Pop Will Eat Itself reissues which will take in the band's entire catalogue, tell their story and see the release of dozens of unreleased, rare and never before on CD tracks.This unique band, whose influence touched the careers of acts such as The Prodigy and Nine Inch Nails, still has a large, strong following worldwide, and there is an active online community who have shown great interest in these titles thus far. A new PWEI album will be released this year, and the current incarnation of the group will be touring in support of this release, no doubt including plenty of their back catalogue in their set. Seven previously unheard recordings, Two rare B-sides Sleeve-notes from keyboardist/guitarist Adam Mole Archive photographs and press clippings Packaged with reversible US/UK original artwork.

Press:-

"Their earliest indie rock scuzz is collected on ‘88’s Now For A Feast!, by which time ‘87’s Box Frenzy had incorporated sampling and other hip hop moves into proto-indie dance off daffy joie de vivre. Both come engorged with bonuses, some of which seem to have been mastered off old cassettes.”

P.H.U.Q

Released on 27/09/10. May of 1995 saw the long-awaited release of the Wildhearts second full length album, P.H.U.Q. . The album was the band's greatest success to date, reaching a number six in the UK charts. Released originally on East West, the CD came inside a limited edition velvet slip case that was only available for the first month of its release.


The album diverged from earlier releases with a collection of subtly darker and more involved tracks that still offer the classic sound of the Wildhearts ,chunky riffage and catchy melodies. The band bring on the usual pounding rock anthems you know and love them for, with tracks such as I Wanna Go Where The People Go , Just In Lust and Nita Nitro . Their energy seems to have tripled with these riff heavy rock numbers. Complementing these tracks by the sheer contrast are the slower, quieter songs such as Jonesing For Jones , Be My Drug and In Lilly’s Garden .


This 2CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Ling and extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.

Endless Nameless

Released on 27/09/10. Released under the Mushroom Records label back in October 1997, the Endless, Nameless album caused a huge stir amongst Wildhearts fans, due to its distorted sound and white noise mixing. The album produced two sets of singles, Anthem and Urge . The track Anthem sported Danny McCormack as lead vocalist for the first and only time. Abandoning past sound in favour of an almost industrial punk style, the Wildhearts hid ten gorgeous pop songs behind infinite layers of noise. 'Anthem' and 'Pissjoy' emerge as tunes first, with the kind of choruses which would guarantee chart success if you could only make them out.

But the production, is utterly fantastic. The songs are still undeniably of the same breed as 'I Wanna go Where The People Go' and 'Sick of Drugs', but are elevated to even greater heights by the production. It's never gratuitously noisy. The songs were made to work with the production. It's perhaps the most innovative and misunderstood masterpiece of the nineties. And nobody has even come close since.


This 2 CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Ling and extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.
