Outernational
A timely reissue of Billy MacKenzie's first solo album 'Outernational' plus bonus tracks. William MacArthur "Billy" MacKenzie first came to musical prominence through his involvement in the much loved band The Associates in the early 80's. This was his first album release after the split with fellow Associate, Alan Rankine.
The album was originally released in 1992 on Circa Records.
This CD contains the two singles taken from the album, 'Baby' and 'Colours Will Come'.
The CD features the ten tracks of the original album release and four bonus tracks including mixes/remixes of 'Colours Will Come - US 60659 Mix' by Larry Heard, 'Feels Like The Richtergroove' by Mike Koglin, 'Look What You've Done - Marital Mix' and the beautiful 'Because You Love'.
The CD booklet features an expanded version of the original artwork and includes a detailed UK discography and sleeve notes.
The album has been digitally remastered for this release.
Speaking of the 'Outernational' album to Record Collector magazine in 1994 MacKenzie gave his impression of the album "I think it has a glacial beauty. It doesn't always have to be demonstrative. Fire can burn, but so can ice. And that would direct the attention to the lyrical content as well. Some of it had a lot of religious connotations, like "Colours Will Come". I think that it's an emotionally detached album in some ways, but it also has a strong message. Maybe it appeared like I wasn't trying or expressing, or that there was a block. But it wasn't. There was a calmness and a lot of beauty in that album.
Billy MacKenzie passed away aged 39 on January 22nd 1997 leaving a lasting musical legacy.
