Super Furry Animals / Radiator / 20th anniversary deluxe reissue

Following last year’s reissue of Fuzzy Logic, BMG will release a 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Super Furry Animals‘ second album, Radiator next month.

Both vinyl and CD editions will feature a brand new remaster of the album but whereas the 2LP set is album only, the two-CD deluxe edition features a massive 30 bonus tracks, including an unheard cover of The Smith‘s The Boy With The Thorn In His Side which the band recorded for a covermount CD of a French magazine. Speaking of this track, Gruff Rhys says “We wanted to translate the lyrics of The Smiths track into French, so I spoke to a French friend of mine, who was actually working in Manchester, hence the half-French, half-Mancunian accent on the spoken introduction. It didn’t quite work out that way, although there are elements of the translation on it if you listen carefully, so what we have instead is an instrumental homage. I can’t remember why it didn’t get released, but am glad it hasn’t been lost forever and Furries, perhaps even Smiths fans, can now make their own mind up on how it compares to the original.”

 

19 of those 30 bonus tracks are previously unreleased, and the work of cataloguing the archive material and remastering fell to ‘head archivist’ Kliph Scurlock and Donal Whelan. Scurlock explains that “Taking a more natural approach to the mastering process allows more of what the band did back then to shine through, rather than coat it the unnecessary gloss of nineties mastering techniques. Delving further into the archives, the unreleased tracks, b-sides and demos have had only the faintest of touches to bring them up to a quality the band is happy with, but still puts us in the rehearsal room or studio with them.”

Radiator will be released on 2LP vinyl (album tracks only) and the two-CD deluxe on 28 July 2017

    Did anyone managed to grab a Signed CD or Vinyl from the PledgeMusic Store?

    They went extremely quickly – I missed out this time around.

  2. Meadowmeal says:

    “how it compares to the original” ROFL!
    Can this even be called a cover? Anyway, I love it. And I’m eagerly anticipating this release.

  3. Urs says:

    A question that has nothing to do with Super Furry Animals (sorry!) but a band from the same era: Does anybody know if there are/will be SDEs of Spiritualized? Especially “Ladies and Gentlemen …”, also from 1997.
    Thanks!

  4. Piotr says:

    @Urs. There was a Super Deluxe Edition of Ladies & Gentlemen released in 2009 with 2 discs of bonus material. Still available on Amazon.

  5. Gregsy says:

    One of my all-time favourite albums. Definitely on the list.

  6. Dr Volume says:

    Looking forward to this, imperial phase SFA (and hopefully a ‘Guerrilla’ SDE next). The original was mastered with everything pushed up to 11 so I wonder how this will sound.
    I’d like at some point to hear recordings their mad Welsh techno jams they used to encore with…if they exist (The Smiths cover reminds me of those)

  7. michal says:

    great news, “radiator” is a neopoppsychedelic masterpiece. saw them playing it in full last year. a truly mind-blowing gig it was

  8. Tel-X says:

    ….and I was wanting a 5.1 surround DTS-MA Blu-Ray of Radiator for Xmas. Oh well.

  9. DJ Salinger says:

    On the list, no question.

    And how good is it to see the mighty ‘Ice Hockey Hair’ included? That’s seven minutes of your life never better spent.
