RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2009 .

• Sad Lovers and Giants originally formed in 1981 and produced ‘classy alternative pop music’, a psychedelic post punk sound. The guitars chimed above atmospheric keyboards held together by a rock solid rhythm section underpinning very accessible song writing and the strong haunting voice of singer Garce.

• Think Chameleons, early Cure and latterly bands like Interpol. After their initial split in 1984 interest in the band grew at home and abroad prompting them into reforming in the late 80’s and producing several more great albums but ‘Epic Garden Music’ is the starting point.

• This CD includes the early singles as well as the ‘Indie chart hit mini’ album itself. The album itself was recorded live with very few overdubs and has been described as having a ‘pastoral Pink Floyd’ sound. The addition of the early singles makes it a perfect document of the band at this time as well as acting as a stunning introduction.

• Full colour booklet featuring notes from Garce and pictures from his archive and includes seven songs not on the original vinyl.
