Following the release of The Early Years' long-awaited new album 'II' in September, we are excited to reveal that we have licensed their self-titled debut album for a special 10th anniversary vinyl reissue. 'The Early Years' will be released as a limited edition pressing of just 300 copies on transparent orange wax. It's a brand new vinyl cut by Noel Summerville, who has previously worked on a number of My Bloody Valentine and Warp reissues.
The album was originally released on Beggars Banquet on September 25, 2006 and includes the singles 'All Ones And Zeros' and 'So Far Gone'. It also features the live staple 'Simple Solution', which most recently closed the band's incendiary set at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia. On its release, it received glowing reviews from the likes of NME, Uncut, The Fly (RIP), The Independent (RIP) and the standard withering 6.4 from Pitchfork. But rather than sounding "like Coldplay on muscle relaxers", we think it's an underrated classic that will appeal to fans of 'Sowiesoso' and Spiritualized alike. It also comes with the seal of approval of Brian Eno, The Horrors and Damo Suzuki and we are proud to be making it available on vinyl once again.
