Description

MANSUN'S AUDACIOUS AND INFECTIOUS TOP 10 ALBUM REMASTERED FOR ITS 21ST-ANNIVERSARY. INCLUDES THE SINGLES "SIX", "BEING A GIRL", "LEGACY" AND "NEGATIVE"

"A twisting maze of prog, glam and early-'80s guitar pop... No-one has done northern angst on LSD quite like this" NME

Mansun were one of the most iconic and innovative British bands of the late 90s. Having signed to the legendary record label Parlophone (home to The Beatles, Radiohead and Sigur Ros) they released four albums 'Attack of the Grey Lantern' (1997), 'Six' (1998), 'Little Kix' (2000) and the compilation 'Kleptomania' following the band's split as well as a popular and now rare series of EPs. Kscope, having now acquired this impressive catalogue, are running a thorough re-issue series that delves into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio and visual material, including the much awaited 21st-anniversary remaster of their experimental Top 10 album 'Six' (#6 UK charts).

Tearing up the expectation laid by their smash hit #1 debut album 'Attack of the Grey Lantern', Mansun followed up in 1998 with their leftfield cult classic 'Six'. The music is a unification of numerous ideas and inspirations, with elements of pop, electronica and progressive rock. They included a Tchaikovsky sample interlaced with electronic drums and spooky synth lines, references to religious scepticism, Winnie the Pooh, Stanley Kubrick, Marxism and spoken word from the legendary fourth Doctor Who - Tom Baker. Its varied sounds result in dynamic switches mid-track to seemingly new songs, making the album a timeless record and it's not short on strong individual tracks with the singles "Legacy", "Being A Girl", "Negative" and "Six".

The audio has been fully remastered from the original master tapes by Jon Astley (Van Morrison, The Who, George Harrison, Norah Jones, Rolling Stones). This 21st-anniversary 2LP edition of 'Six' is presented on black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
