AC ACOUSTICS: VICTORY PARTS DELUXE REISSUE

25 Apr 2013

One Little Indian re-issue AC Acoustics much revered second album, Victory Parts as the 4th in our Totem Series of limited editions and deluxe reissues.

The re-mastered release includes thee extra tracks - Shoka, Violent Peep and 1994’s long out of print Hand Passes Plenty - in a re-ordered track list. CD2 includes a live set, The Silver Echo & the Golden Echo - recorded live at Reading Festival in 1996.

Formed in Glasgow in 1990, AC Acoustics original sound took its lead from the wave of mid-late 80s noise bands like Jesus And Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. The band released their debut mini album Able Treasury to ecstatic reviews in 1994, NME discovering a “mixture of the instantly recognisable and the frankly lunatic that makes AC Acoustics such a vital prospect”.

By the time of its follow up, 1997’s Victory Parts, the band had evolved a more complex hook-heavy sound overlaid with Paul Campion’s intriguingly cryptic lyrics. The band toured heavily with the likes of Embrace, Stereophonics, dEUS and Placebo (Brian Molko a big champion of the band) but despite this and glowing accolades for Victory Parts in the music press AC Acoustics were apparently destined to remain a cult act, ultimately calling it a day in 2003 after two further albums, Understanding Music (2000) and O (2002).

All purchases of Victory Parts made through the One Little Indian store come with a 7″ record sized collectors booklet featuring interviews with Mark Raine about the making of the album.

Released on Monday June 26th, this package is now available to pre-order.
