RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2013

A keenly awaited re-press for the debut long-player from the mighty We’ve Got A Fuzzbox And We’re Gonna Use It!!

Hailing from Birmingham, England, the punk-pop, all-female quartet, also known simply as Fuzzbox first made their mark on the nation when their debut single ‘XX Sex’ / ‘Rules and Regulations’ stormed the UK indie charts reaching the coveted Indie #1 spot in 1986 for a staggering 9 week stint.

Cited as a “Loud, gaudy and mildly controversial both visually and aurally, with a willful raw amateurishness to their playing…” the band soon earned the respect of influential publications such as the NME, Melody Maker as well as recognition from DJ’s Janice Long and the late, great John Peel.

This 2CD/AA Sided “Splendiferous Edition” of the band’s seminal classic “Bostin’ Steve Austin” originally made its CD debut on Cherry Red in 2013, some 27 years after its premiere on Vindaloo/WEA Records.

“Side A” features the original 12 track studio album, digitally remastered from its original analogue master tapes, whilst “Side AA” offers a comprehensive insight into the formative Fuzzbox years compiling 22 of the band’s rarest and sought after recordings.

Bonus materials include the band’s debut EP ‘XX Sex’ / ‘Rules and Regulations’ [UK #41], a collaboration single with Vindaloo label mates, The Nightingales and Ted Chippington, ‘Rockin’ With Rita (Head To Toe)’ [UK #56], B-sides from their UK Top 40 breakthrough single ‘Love Is The Slug’ [UK #31] and 7” follow-up ‘What’s The Point’ [UK #51], their fuzz-tastic rendition of Queen’s timeless classic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, the fan club rarity ‘Radio Fuzzbox’, together with single exclusive B- sides, 12-inch versions and the previously unreleased ‘XX Sex (Gully Mix)’ and ‘Light Of The Silvery Moon’.

Having taken the indie world by storm Fuzzbox went on to release their second album “Big Bang!” [UK #5] in the summer of 1989, boasting the hit singles ‘International Rescue’ [UK #11], ‘Pink Sunshine’ [UK #14] and ‘Self!’ [UK #24], before disbanding in 1990.

The deluxe CD booklet features sleeve notes from the band’s drummer Tina, complete with original and expanded artwork, featuring: single sleeve art, lyrics and rare promotional materials.
