Happy Mondays vinyl reissues

Black vinyl pressings • Redrawn artwork • New sleeve notes

The Happy Mondays‘ four albums for Factory records are being reissued on vinyl.

The albums are the John Cale-produced debut Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out) (1987), Bummed (1988), Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches (1990) and Yes Please (produced by Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz in 1992).

These new records have been cut from Factory Records lacquers and have been pressed on 180 gram vinyl. The artwork from each album has been redrawn by the original designers, Central Station Design, so expect some pin-sharp reproductions rather than blurry scans!

Each album also comes with new sleeve notes, with John Robb handling the debut, Andrew Perry on Bummed, Sylvia Patterson (Pills ‘N’ Thrills and Bellyaches) and Miranda Sawyer (Yes Please). These also come with  a download code.

All four will be released on 31 January 2020. If you are thinking of buying a complete set then the Happy Mondays online store has a special money saving bundle.
