Friendly Fires (15th Anniversary Edition): Silver Vinyl LPXL383LP
Release Date: 8th September
Remember music blogs? Remember hypemachine? Remember remixes stronger than the originals? Remember tight jeans being 'your thing'? Remember bands also doing dance stuff and the frontperson playing a drum keyboard thing that you weren't sure actually made any sound? Then you'll remember St. Albans favourite (and possibly only) musical children Friendly Fires. Commuter town* electro pop at it's finest.
*i think you'll find St. Albans is (bafflingly) a city *snarfsnarf*
‘Friendly Fires’ was the debut album from the St Albans-three piece, Ed McFarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savidge. Featuring hit singles ‘Jump In the Pool’ and ‘Paris’, it was an era-defining record. It launched the band to huge critical and commercial success, nominated for The Mercury Prize and a Brit Award. The LP is now reissued for its 15th Anniversary on silver vinyl.
