Seminal reissue of the self-titled debut from The Raincoats. Originally released on Rough Trade Records in 1979.

The album was recorded in 1979 by Ana da Silva, Gina Birch, Palmolive and Vicky Aspinall and was produced by Geoff Travis and Mayo Thompson.

The album has been re-mastered from original masters and the vinyl is pressed in 180gm transparent red vinyl. Limited to 1000 copies. Includes mp3 download coupon.

“I really don’t know much about The Raincoats except that they recorded some music that has affected me so much that whenever I hear it I’m reminded of a particular time in my life when I was (shall we say) extremely unhappy, lonely and bored. If it weren’t for the luxury of putting on that scratchy copy of The Raincoats’ first record, I would have had very few moments of peace”. Kurt Cobain
