RIYL: Fatboy Slim,
Astralwerks has started to reissue what they have of the Chemical Brothers back catalog and they have done an excellent job so far.
Here they are with 1999’s Surrender which was a genre defying album for high school age me.
Pressed on heavy blue vinyl and numbered out of 1,000 these are pressed sell quick like.
REISSUE OF TOM ROWLANDS AND ED SIMONS' 3RD FULL-LENGTH. This colored vinyl reissue of Surrender is part of a much-needed campaign by Astralwerks to reissue many rare and out-of-print Chemical Brothers records. Surrender is the culmination of the massive success of their first two albums and the start of the duo's shift away from the super-bland "big beat" tag towards the even-blander label "electronica". Featuring guest appearances from Hope Sandoval, Jonathan Donahue and their Northern brethren Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Bernard Sumner (New Order, Joy Division) and Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream, Jesus & Mary Chain), the album boasts a mix of rock radio crossovers ("Let Forever Be", "Out Of Control") and relatively straightforward techno ("Got Glint?" and "Under The Influence", haaa). The late nineties / early 00s bedroom raver crew will surely remember stadium-rocking breakbeat anthem "Hey Boy Hey Girl" from MTV AMP.
