Tonight You Are The Special One is released on vinyl for the very first time.
“Earl Brutus are one of this country's most consistently underrated, underappreciated bands.” The Guardian, 2004
Earl Brutus are Nick Sanderson (Clock DVA, Jesus And Mary Chain, World Of Twist), Gordon King and Jim Fry (World Of Twist), Rob Marche (JoBoxers, Subway Sect) with Shins and Stuart Boreman.
Earl Brutus achieve notoriety and cult status with the release of their debut album Your Majesty… We Are Here. Their attention grabbing interviews and gigs attract wider interest and they sign to Island Records via Fruition.
They release a second long player, Tonight You Are The Special One, and several singles including The SAS And The Glam That Goes With It and Come Taste My Mind (“masterful examples of raging techno-pop” Select ) and Larky.
The album sleeve is included in Q magazine’s 100 Best Album Sleeves Of All Time in 2001. Artist Scott King is art director for this re-issue. King realised the concepts for the original release and singles and this LP release allows you to appreciate the artwork in large 12” x 12” scale for the very first time.
This vinyl re-issue is on heavyweight 180gsm vinyl and includes an MP3 download card, specially designed for this release by Scott King.
