Kingmaker were explosive ‘new cool rock’ and part of the pre-Brit Pop indie rock scene in the early 1990s. They were darlings of the alternative/indie music press, enjoying modest chart success for several years, making appearances on Top of the Pops, touring the world relentlessly and featuring on festival stages across Europe.

• Everything Changed is the definitive Kingmaker document. This is the most complete collection of Kingmaker’s recordings available: a comprehensive 5 CD set of almost 90 tracks, combining the band’s three studio albums “Eat Yourself Whole” (1991), “Sleepwalking” (1993) and “In The Best Possible Taste” (1995) along with two CDs packed full of bonus material.

• Kingmaker released 10 singles / EP’s during the period 1991-1995 signed to Chrysalis. This collection features B-sides and extra tracks, with 13 recordings appearing on CD for the first time in the UK, including the U.S. remix of ‘Really Scrape The Sky’ by Thompson & Barbiero.

• Everything Changed has been made with the full cooperation of the band and includes photographs and memorabilia from their personal archives that are featured within the accompanying 28-page booklet. Each CD comes in a paper wallet featuring original album and single artwork. Alongside a full UK discography there are sleeve notes written by bassist, Myles Howell.

This is a must have for any fan of the band and indie rock fans everywhere.
