Temporary Residence are reissuing some more Cerberus Shoal LPs. The label says: "Following the recently remastered and expanded debut and sophomore albums by the pioneering, creatively restless Northeastern US collective, Cerberus Shoal, we now proudly present the remainder of their Temporary Residence catalog. Originally released in the late 90s and early 00s, these three albums marked the most celebrated era of the band's decade-long career: 'Homb', commonly considered to be the high-water mark; the double-album opus, 'Mr. Boy Dog'; and 'Elements Of Structure / Permanence', their first and only full-length film score

The Fall - 'I Am Kurious Oranj' reissue

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday September 5 2018 in Reissues

The eleventh album from The Fall, 'I Am Kurious Oranj', is being reissued by Beggars Arkive on October 12. Originally released in 1988, "the album was written as the soundtrack to an avant-garde ballet titled 'I Am Curious, Orange', produced by the experimental Michael Clark Company and performed in London with The Fall playing live. As it said in the original ballet program, replicated inside this reissue, 'Mark E. Smith is a history buff and admirer of Michael Clark, and I Am Curious, Orange spawned the idea of a thematic delving into the foibles and little-known psyche of William of Orange.'"
