Deluxe reissue of their 1989 sophomore album pressed on pale blue colour vinyl. Presented in a gloss laminated gatefold sleeve, which features the original LP plus a bonus disc with all the A and B sides, some compilation tracks and an outtake, plus a 12-page booklet containing previously unpublished lyrics and tons of contemporary reviews and photos.

Completely remastered for your listening pleasure. In 1989, while the musical world was fĂȘting serial-killer worshipping noise bands, white boys with dreadlocks and the first glimmers of techno, one band - The Wolfhounds - was describing the times and the country exactly as they were.

Or at least as they saw it. Well, not exactly. The privations of finding enough money to live on, a semi-permanent roof over your head and perhaps the hope of real change were all there in the lyrics along with the multitudinous shards of ideas in the music, both raging and reflective - but there was also a sense of magical realism and authentic personal circumstance imbued in it all.
