Curve: Doppelgänger & Cuckoo reissues

Double-disc reissues – remastered with EPs, B-sides, remixes & rarities

To mark the 25th anniversary of their debut, 3 Loop Music are to reissue British indie/alt-rock band Curve‘s first two albums – Doppelgänger and Cuckoo – as two-CD deluxe editions.

Compiled by Dean Garcia and Toni Halliday, between them these expanded reissues include all manner of remixes, rare and unreleased tracks. Along with the album proper, the two-CD set of 1992’s Doppelgänger (self-produced with Flood and mixed by Alan Moulder) includes all 12 tracks from the band’s three 1991 EPs, the single versions of both Fait Accompli and Horror Head, various B-sides and the rare Aphex Twin remix of Falling Free. Everything has been remastered from the original tapes.

Regarded by the band as their best work and released just 18 months after Doppelgänger in September 1993, Cuckoo again spawned two singles: the Blackerthreetracker EP (where Missing Link was the lead song) and Superblaster.

The new, expanded two-CD set includes all the remixes from the Blackerthreetrackertwo CD single, various B-sides and the original versions of Rising and Half The Time.

Both Doppelganger and Cuckoo will be reissued on 25 August 2017.
