• Expanded 3CD edition of Children Of The Bong’s debut album.

• Bringing together stand-alone tracks released during the band’s time with Planet Dog, unheard mixes and demos, forgotten remixes and a recording of a live performance from 1995.

• All tracks have remastered from their original sources.
Disc One is a re-master of the band’s 1995 debut album ‘Sirius Sounds’, an 8-track collection of breakbeat-influenced, melodic, analogue, dubby electronica.

Disc Two brings together all of the band’s stand-alone tracks released on various Planet Dog compilations along with a previously unreleased out-take from the ‘Sirius Sounds’ recording session and three demo tracks from the band’s earliest days prior to their signing to Planet Dog.

Disc Three features three remixes which only ever saw light of day on a limited edition US- released 12”. These are followed by a desk recording of a full live set by the band recorded at a Megadog event in Cambridge in 1995.

The package includes a 20-page full colour booklet featuring many unseen photographs and artwork from the band’s archives accompanied by insightful sleeve notes from Kris Needs charting the band’s short but productive career.

“Fiery acid melodies and earthy dub rhythms. Dance music has rarely sounded so warm, so organic, so human” – Push, Melody Maker, 8/1/94

“This album sounds like the unfolding of an entire previously unexplored universe via lots of dubbed-up bass sounds, break beats, trip hoppy vibes and…squiggly techno noises” – Ngaire Ruth, Muzik, August 1995.

“The jewel in the Planet Dog crown…it soundtracks the open mindedness of a new post-E generation” – John Collins, Muzik, September 1995.
