Be it in their original configuration, their cameo in 'High Fidelity' or the hugely popular and truly evergreen CD compilation, The Beta Band's Three Eps have had a consistently and huge impact on a whole generation of music makers and sonic explorers. Utterly essential and very much deserving this 20th anniversary remastered celebration.
Innovative and singular, their unique musical and aesthetic approach to everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries. Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation. After acquiring the Beta Band’s catalogue last year, Because Music have reissued their releases, starting on September 14th with a deluxe vinyl edition gathering in a slipcase the EPs ‘Champion Versions’, ‘The Patty Patty Sound’ and ‘Los Amigos Del Beta Bandidos’ with remastered tracks and coloured vinyl pressings, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1998 compilation.
Because Music will release at the same time a double CD Best-Of compiling all their best hits and a live show recorded at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire (London) in 2004.
