Domino release ‘We Are Beat Happening’, a box set of the band’s entire recorded output. Six albums across seven LPs that showcase how the band created an international network of underground pop entirely on their own terms.

The albums have been newly remastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios and this will be the first time the entire Beat Happening catalogue has been in print in over a decade.

The story of Beat Happening - Calvin Johnson, Heather Lewis and Bret Lunsford - began in Olympia, Washington at the dawn of the 1980s. After playing their first ever shows in Japan, the trio released five albums and four EPs throughout 1984 to 1992 and, whilst they may have played their last show in 1992 and made their final recording in 2000, it’s tricky to define their cessation. Along with the music they made and the shows that they played, Beat Happening created a connectivity that is still completely present.

Features the albums: 
Beat Happening
Black Candy
You Turn Me On
Music To climb the Apple Trees By (New singles compilation).

Shrink-wrapped and stickered deluxe 180g seven LP vinyl box set in hard slipcase and 40-page book with rare images and liner notes from Lois Maffeo plus digital download card.

Beat Happening - We Are Beat Happening [7LP Box Set] is currently priced at a special preorder rate and will revert to full price on release. The release date of 29th November 2019 is estimated and subject to change.
