In recognition of their 40th anniversary ‘And also the trees’ are re-issuing their self-titled debut album in a special double-vinyl remastered edition.
Recorded in London in 1983, the album was produced by Laurence Tolhurst of The Cure, with whom they toured during the first years of the bands life.
Considered by many now as a post-punk classic, the album is excellently recorded and whilst the production is polished and meticulously executed, the youthful energy and raw passion of ‘And also the trees’ is perfectly captured.
With the addition of both A & B sides of their first two single releases ‘Shantell’ and ‘The secret sea’, the second disc of the release also features the debut recordings made in 1981 with Robert Smith and Mike Hedges for the self-released cassette ‘From under the hill’, available on vinyl for the very first time and something of a holy grail for both collectors and fans of ‘and also the trees’ and The Cure alike.
The album will also be made available in a single-disc CD edition.
