Following on from the The Bats and Snapper EPs re-issued for Record Store Day, we decided to tackle the longer format, and The Clean's first full-length studio albumVehicle seemed the perfect fit.
Released in 1990, much of Vehicle was written following the band's reunion tour in the late 1980s. Right from the opening "Drawing To A Whole"to the beautiful"Diamond Shine", these 13 tracks show a band coming back together in a celebration of noise.
The upcoming re-issue will also include the bonus live EPIn-A-Live from the same reunion tour. Presented in a gatefold 2xLP set that includes not just that great piece of cover art (done by guitarist David Kilgour), but a full colour booklet with liner notes from the band, photos, posters and a pull out In-A-Live 12" sleeve.
