Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: The Cribs
Release Date: 29th July
The British Replacements with a much needed vinyl reissue of their first three and likely finest records. Time has truly shown that Wakefield's favourite sons were a different mustard compared to their piers, with influences which stretched far beyond the usual touchpoints of the 'landfill indie' era.
The Cribs' first three classic albums are returning to stores on limited edition coloured vinyl, cassette and definitive 2CD editions which feature never-before heard songs, demos, covers and remixes.
The reissue collection includes the band's legendary 2007 album ‘Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever', which features hit singles like 'Men's Needs' & 'I'm a Realist', back on vinyl for the first time in five years, this time on limited edition Purple vinyl.
Produced by Alex Kapranos, the album is full of enduring anthems and is still considered by many as one of the defining indie rock albums of the noughties. In the USA, Rolling Stone made it one of their records of the year, calling it a “tour de force”.
