Dr Robert of ’80s pop favourites The Blow Monkeys, has revealed via twitter that the band’s first two albums – 1984’s Limping For A Generation and Animal Magic from 1986 – will be reissued by Cherry Red Records in November this year.
Both deluxe editions will include demos and unreleased tracks, and ‘the doctor’ himself revealed some titles of the unheard material, such as Soulboy in Slumber from the Limping For A Generation period, and Guess I Love Her Now from Animal Magic. Remixes and B-sides should help fill up what will almost certainly be 2CD releases.
Hopefully Cherry Red will restore the original front cover to Limping.. (see above) which wasn’t used on the CD issue back in the eighties. A rare Japanese mini-LP CD reissue from 2008 was the first time the correct cover was used for a CD release.
