Late of the Pier - Fantasy Black Channel: 10 Year Anniversary Edition (LP + Lenticular Sleeve)
500 Copies Only Limited Lenticular 10 Year Anniversary Edition on Heavyweight Vinyl, printed inner sleeve and digital companion album of unreleased demoes and outtakes from the album recording sessions.
Late of the Pier announce a special 10th anniversary edition of their cult debut album Fantasy Black Channel, produced by Erol Alkan and released in 2008 to great acclaim. Fittingly, the reissue – released on a limited lenticular edition of 500, alongside a standard edition both with heavyweight vinyl. The reissues are accompanied by a digital companion album of unreleased demos and outtakes from the album recording sessions – set for release through Alkan’s Phantasy Sound label.
LOTP (Sam Eastgate, Andrew Faley, Ross Dawson & Sam Potter) were a band of inter-dimensional musicians who landed in the late noughts, whose wild journey took them from the quiet North West Leicestershire countryside to the stages of Coachella, Tokyo and beyond. After their 2008 debut they put out singles ‘Blueberry’ and ‘Best In The Class’ in 2010, and their mutant take on pop saw them pick up fans from Dave Grohl to Mike Skinner along the way. Joseph Mount of Metronomy called them the “greatest band ever,” while Simian Mobile Disco super-producer James Ford said, “To me, the mid noughties seemed to be about trying to define a new kind of pop music by blurring boundaries and painting in bright colours. The colours that Late of the Pier used were the brightest of all.”
This re-issue also features the previously CD only secret track 'No Time', for the first time on vinyl.
