Cherry Red Records are very proud to be working together with Momus again, following on from the success of their 2016 collaboration, Pubic Intellectual – An Anthology 1986-2016.

Named after the Greek god of mockery, Momus is prolific Scottish songwriter, author and journalist Nick Currie, who has now been releasing critically acclaimed music in a style all of his own for over thirty years.

Momus’ first three classic albums for Creation Records have now been compiled together in one very attractive package by Cherry Red Records, combining this already genius material with a selection of fantastic bonus tracks selected by Momus himself and this set features the fabled Indie smash – ‘Hairstyle Of The Devil’.

The Poison Boyfriend, along with much of Momus’ musical output, received high praise upon its initial release, with the NME naming it one of the best albums of 1987, and Fact Magazine later calling the release the 81st best album of the 1980s. All three of the albums contained in this package sound as fresh today as they did upon their first release, and this package is sure to please hardcore Momus followers and new fans alike.

The entire package has been lovingly digitally remastered especially for this release.

Contains enthralling and revealing sleeve notes by fellow musician, author of The Walker Brothers, Jeff Buckley and Leonard Cohen biographies, and past Momus- collaborator Anthony J Reynolds.

Booklet also contains an extra-special foreword by Momus.
