about

IMPORTANT NOTE: we can only offer 14 tracks for streaming/download due to licensing restrictions. The remainder are only available on the physical releases.

The Distractions' beloved debut album has never been reissued since it first came out on Island Records in May 1980... Until now. Expanded with non-LP singles, rarities, unreleased demos and remixes it finally appears in all its considerable glory... But only in physical form. The 2xCD edition features everything the band released 1978-81 plus a fair few things they didn't. The LP offers the remix, as many fans still have the original and if not it can be picked up cheaply second-hand.

The 2xCD edition contains 48 tracks, see second picture of the CD merch entry for details but: CD1: 1-14 "Nobody's Perfect" original mix, 15-18 Island singles 1979-80, 19-21 "And Then There's...." EP 1981, 22 from Cabaret Futura compilation. CD2: 1-4 Previously unreleased Sept 1978 demos 5-8 "You're Not Going Out Dressed Like That" 12" EP, 9-10 Factory single 1979, 11-26: remixes by Nick Halliwell.

The LP contains the 14 tracks of the remixed version of "Nobody's Perfect", i.e. CD2 13-26.
All tracks freshly mastered, all but eight of them from the original master tapes.

This 40th anniversary reissue is a joint release by Occultation Recordings and Man In The Moon Records.
