The PWEI Cure For Sanity-Expanded Edition - Pop Will Eat Itself

The PWEI Cure For Sanity-Expanded Edition
Their second major label release, "Cure For Sanity” saw PWEI head in a more dancefloor orientated direction, whilst maintaining the tongue in cheek approach to lyrics and the cut and paste sampling techniques of their two previous albums. Featuring four hugely successful singles in ‘Touched By The Hand Of Cicciolina’, ‘Dance Of The Mad’, ‘X, Y and Zee’ and ‘92 Degrees’, the record increased their fanbase in the UK and across the globe whilst also sending them into the UK charts and into the clubs via a number of great remixes.

Presented here across 2CDs, this package features the original album (restored to it’s original running order, as opposed to the ‘single edits’ version released in 1991), a number of rare tracks and remixes (including tracks previously only available on vinyl or promotional cassettes) and never before heard versions of album and single tracks from the BMG archives.

Added to this, the package features sleeve-notes by the band’s own Adam Mole, an essay on this period of their career and some fantastic archive images. All reissues should be of this standard.

A must have package for any PWEI fan, and a brilliant showcase of a remarkable album. This record has international appeal and promises to put the band’s trailblazing career under the microscope again.


"By continuing to take their cue from the like of Public Enemy and Beastie Boys, and adding an English twist to their version of things, they consolidated their position as Britain’s leading indie/hip hop/techno crossover outfit.”

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.
