Art Brut – Bang, Bang, Rock & Roll Vinyl/Digital with Masters of Pop Hits Shirt
Art Brut return with a reissue of their seminal debut album Bang, Bang, Rock & Roll on vinyl on Alcopop! Records X Fierce Panda – almost 15 years to the day since it dropped back in 2005. All the tracks are remastered and it sounds even better than before.
Available on gold or more traditional black vinyl, the special edition gatefold record comes with a wonderfully emotional foreward from Ezra Furman – a special unreleased (on vinyl) secret track ‘Subliminal Desire for Adventure’ and a host of extra unreleased tracks ‘Brutlegs and B-Sides’ available on the download card.
Also – the inner sleeve has been crafted with a wonderful selection of photographs and memories from the recently formed society of ‘Art Brut Historians’ – a loose collective of fans and friends who’ve been there from the start.
A genuinely seminal record, Pitchfork included the record in their list of top 200 albums of the 2000s. – and the big ‘hits’ like Modern Art, Formed a Band and Emily Kane have been staples for the awkward indie disco dancers to groove to ever since.
Oh and that Masters of Pop Hits shirt? That speaks for itself, right?
