BACKSATURDAY

Record Store Day 2019

Ltd. Edition 180 gsm Duck Egg Remastered Vinyl Reissue of the 2nd Prolapse LP from 1995, which saw them experimenting with both repetitive grooves and ambient soundscapes, krautrock & kitchen sink drama.

They feature duelling vocalists Mick Derrick and Linda Steelyard, who play out an intense soap opera over a ferocious triple guitar assault and pummelling rhythm section.The Classic 15 minute track Flex, has been remixed by current bass player and former Julian Cope associate, Donald Ross Skinner for this release.

After a long hiatus, following a request from Mogwai, they reformed in 2015 to play live UK dates on Mogwai’s 20th Anniversary Shows, and have since begun work on new material. Look out for some further live action this summer.

Includes unlimited streaming of Backsaturday via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
