One Little Indian is set to release some key back catalogue items in the coming months. Firstly, an important reissue of Animals That Swim’s debut album ‘Workshy’. The second is a bespoke One Little Indian curated boxset celebrating Kitchens of Distinction.
Influential ‘90s cult band Animals That Swim have announced the re-release of their debut album ‘Workshy’ on 3rd February 2017. The re-mastered deluxe album reissue includes seven exclusive unreleased tracks plus two rare B-sides, as well as the original album artwork along with unseen images from the ‘90s. Fans will be able to hear re-mastered versions of the band’s much-loved singles ‘Roy’, ‘Pink Carnations’, ‘Madame Yevonde’ and fan favourite ‘King Beer’.
‘Workshy’, first released in 1994, was in the top 15 of NME’s best albums of the year, and will see a vinyl, CD and digital re-release via One Little Indian, who also released the band’s highly acclaimed follow-up record ‘I Was the King, I Really Was the King’. The band’s singles featured regularly in the Indie Charts Top Ten.
Celebrated band Kitchens of Distinction are set to release their back catalogue as a six-CD boxset via One Little Indian on 3rd March 2017, including rare b-sides and BBC sessions. The limited edition boxset is presented as a hard book with a foiled cover, and includes the legendary band’s first four studio albums re-mastered, a collection of b-sides (including Quick As Rainbows produced by Martin Hannett) and previously unreleased BBC sessions (John Peel, 1992 and Mark Radcliffe, 1994), packaged in a 36-page book with sleeve notes by music critic Martin Aston, full discography, rare photos and memorabilia.
Having released their fifth studio album ‘Folly’ in 2013, following their reformation in 2012, the London trio have been pushing boundaries culturally, politically and musically since the ‘80s. Their first singles released on One Little Indian, 1988’s “Prize” and 1989’s “The 3rd Time We Opened the Capsule”, made it onto the “NME Writers’ 100 Best Indie Singles Ever” list in 1992.
