•    The Kane Gang emerged from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne’s successful Kitchenware stable in the early 1980s, with a distinctive, gritty brand of lyrically acerbic, blue-eyed soul/funk.

•    Released in early 1985, debut album THE BAD & LOWDOWN WORLD OF THE KANE GANG reached No. 21 in the album charts and has been unavailable on CD for well over a decade.

•    The album boasted several hit singles: ‘Small Town Creed’ (No. 60), ‘Closest Thing To Heaven’ (No. 12), a cover of the Staple Singers’ ‘Respect Yourself’ (No. 21) and ‘Gun Law’ (No. 53).

•    Compiled and collated by founder members Dave Brewis, Martin Brammer and Paul Woods, THE BAD & LOWDOWN WORLD OF THE KANE GANG is now treated to a 3-CD deluxe edition.

•    The original album has been re-mastered with a host of non-album bonus tracks and debut single ‘Brother Brother’, including the best of the many remixes from the period.

•    The package also boasts a baker’s dozen of previously unheard Kane Gang demos, recorded during and after the album sessions (and prior to their second album).

•    Disc 3 is given over to an exclusive live concert from Glasgow Strathclyde University 17/11/84, only two tracks from which were originally released as B-sides.

•    Dave, Martin and Paul have been interviewed for the lengthy sleeve-notes.

NB: This title is released on October 27, 2014 and will not be dispatched until this date.
