+ Limited Indie 2LP version pressed on white coloured vinyl and includes a bonus CD.

'Rafi’s Revenge' originally peaked at number 20 on the UK Albums Chart and was shortlisted for the 1998 Mercury Music Prize, with Bobby Gillespie hailing them at the time as ‘the best live act in Britain’. This 21 year anniversary reissue includes a limited edition, coloured 2xLP plus expanded digital & CD editions with bonus tracks selected by Adrian Sherwood. 

By the time they recorded 'Rafi’s Revenge' in 1998, Asian Dub Foundation were primed to explode. Having initially emerged from East London’s grassroots Community Music project as a largely studio-based collective, the band had galvanised themselves into a riotously exciting touring machine by the late Nineties. Their extraordinary live shows around this period were electrifying to witness, kinetic and dynamic, incendiary and euphoric, confrontational yet celebratory. For sheer roof-raising energy, they were unrivalled. ADF have evolved enormously over the last two decades, of course, but their breakthrough album remains a fascinating chapter in the real, complex, unwritten history of Britpop.

Expanded and enlarged for this anniversary edition, these multi-layered musical treasures still dazzle and delight with their grandiose ambition and riotous energy

+ Vinyl edition: Double 12” coloured white vinyl. Gatefold sleeve and inner-sleeves printed on reversed cardboard. 4-page. 30cm insert.

+ CD edition : Double CD edition in 3-panel digisleeve printed on reversed cardboard with 24-page booklet.

“Right here, right now ADF are the most important band in Britain.” - NME, 1997.
