$35.00
Format
"Tongue-in-cheek Sylvia-Plath-meets-Paul McCartney pop sensibility"
Description

English indie rock group Black Box Recorder formed in London in 1997 and featured Sarah Nixey, Luke Haines (of The Auteurs), and John Moore (of The Jesus and Mary Chain). Their debut album England Made Me was released on Chrysalis Records in 1998, named after the eponymous Graham Greene novel and fuses indie rock and easy-listening pop stylings with lyrics that explore life and the experience of growing up in England. Pitchfork's Michael Sandlin described the sound of the album as "mildly morose but slightly tongue-in-cheek Sylvia-Plath-meets-Paul McCartney pop sensibility".

 

 

England Made Me remains a high point in the band's catalogue with standout tracks including 'Kidnapping An Heiress', 'Girl Singing In The Wreckage', and the single 'Child Psychology' which was recently back in the spotlight with a viral moment on social media after being championed by Billie Eilish.

 

This new anniversary edition has been curated with the assistance of the band and features a newly remaster version of the album, along with a bonus 10" vinyl that includes six b-sides, 4 of which are first time on vinyl. All audio has been remastered from the original production tapes by Phil Kinrade at AIR Mastering and and cut by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios.

Editions

• 180gm black vinyl LP and 140gm 10", housed in a gatefold sleeve with poly-lined inner bags and an 8-page booklet featuring photographs and lyrics.
