Thompson Twins / Quick Step & Side Kick / neon yellow vinyl LP


The Thompson Twins‘ 1983 album Quick Step & Side Kick will be reissued on coloured vinyl next month.

With the band newly reduced to a trio, Quick Step & Side Kick (renamed Side Kicks in the US) was their breakthrough album, producing two top ten UK singles – Love On Your Side and We Are Detective. And although Lies was a relative flop in Britain, it performed well in the States peaking, at number 30 on the Hot 100 Billboard chart.

The new special edition is from the Weatherbox label and the Alex Sadkin produced long-player has been remastered for 180g vinyl with initial pressings on NEON YELLOW vinyl.

This LP will also come with a newly designed inner bag and is the first in a planned series of reissues by Weatherbox. In fact, they are promising a 2LP deluxe of this very album for 2016 which will include some of the many remixes and brand new sleeve notes by Tom Bailey.

For now, this vinyl reissue of Quick Step & Side Kick will be issued on 27 November 2015.
