The mid 90s were heady days in the UK's electronic music scene, and this 1995 classic from British trio The Black Dog is no exception. Reissued for the first time on vinyl since it first landed, Spanners was the group's third album, and has since been hailed as one of the 50 best IDM albums of all time by the Pitchfork gods. Two of the three Black Dog boyz would leave shortly afterward to form Plaid, which should be enough to lure you in for a listen to this bleep-bloop brilliance. - Flying Out

Originally released in 1995, Spanners is the second album from The Black Dog and their first for Warp Records. In 2017 it was selected by Pitchfork as one of ‘The 50 Best IDM Albums of All Time’. The reissue will be the first time the vinyl is available since its original pressing in 1995. After this release the original trio of Ed Handley, Andy Turner and Ken Downie went their separate ways - Handley and Turner formed Plaid, whilst Downie carried on with The Black Dog name, initially by himself, and latterly with the assistance of brothers Martin and Richard Dust.
