Flying Nun Records are pleased to announce pre-orders for an extended double LP edition of the Headless Chickens' - Body Blow.
The release is also part of our new Re-Issue Club (or Ric as we sometimes call it).
The first episode of the club features FOUR crowd funded Flying Nun vinyl re-issue projects. We will be announcing one record each day this week, until Friday October 10, when they all go on sale. As well as pre-ordering them individually, they are also be available as a special discounted bundle.
Unlike most of the recent Flying Nun reissues - all four of these albums were originally released during the 1990s, and one has never been pressed to vinyl before.
Bigger, brighter and more produced than previous album, Stunt Clown, it also featured numerous charting singles - 'Cruise Control' (No.6), ‘Gaskrankinstation’ (No. 28) and ‘Donde Este La Pollo’ (no.4), followed by Juice (no.7) and Mr Moon (no.22), the latter two featuring on the 1993 version of the album - making it one of the most successful Flying Nun released albums. It also featured the first (and only) Flying Nun number one single George - which, while technically was on the 1997 album Greedy, the band have decided to include on the Body Blow re-issue because it fits better with this album.
Originally formed in the mid 1980s, the band was Chris Matthews, Fiona McDonald, Michael Lawry, Grant Fell, Ant Nevison and Bevan Sweeney.
The full track list and artwork to be announced shortly.
