Limited edition red and green splatter vinyl. Only 300 copies.
Arriving at the back end of the ‘80s, their signature “Warm Wall of Sound” resided somewhere between the jangle pop of other indie scene favorites such as The Rain Parade and The Church and the proto-shoegaze of Loop, Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine. They enjoyed a “1001 night” season as a touring favorite in the U.K., before releasing the ironically named “Out of Time” EP and dissolving in the face of the impending rave culture that had by then emerged. After that, as original guitarist Nick Taylor states, “Nobody ever saw The Wild Poppies… Very few at least, and I suspect that those few that did can actually remember it now. I certainly can’t, and I was IN the Wild Poppies.”
Compiling - for the first time ever - their long out-of-print “Heroine” LP on Poppie Records, the “Stare at the Sun” 7”, the “Out of Time” EP as well as demos for many latter-day tracks (both released and unreleased), Manufactured Recordings, in association with Spain’s Pretty Olivia Records, is proud to present “Heroine: The Wild Poppies Complete Collection, (1986-1989)”. This comprehensive release also features photos from the period and liner notes detailing from Nick Taylor detailing The Wild Poppies brief and vibrant time together. Original copies of this LP often sell for more than $100, but are offered in this expanded volume for a fraction of its typical price.
