Due to production errors, all formats of the delxue Junk Culture reissue have the wrong tracklist (Wrappup is absent, and All Wrapped Up is erroneously in its place on Disc 2).
Universal have agreed to supply a corrected copy of Disc 2 to anyone who contacts them at [email protected] with proof of purchase.
We apologise for the error and hope that the rest of the reissue is proving enjoyable, particularly the long-awaited unreleased tracks.
The 2CD deluxe reissue of Junk Culture is released today. The package includes the remastered album, a collection of the era’s b-sides and 5 previously unreleased tracks as well as extensive sleeve notes. It is available to order now.

Interesting to see the album cover come out top!
The sleeve was actually a last desperate attempt to salvage 2 failed photo shoots. The Brighton Royal Pavilion ones were too fussy, and Paul and I were originally supposed to be behind the glass with the flowers. That didn’t work either. The sleeve was actually the test shot.
We’re running a poll on Facebook to find the best artwork from the Junk Culture era. If you use facebook, the poll is here.
Many thanks to all who took the time to vote and share their thoughts and memories on the Junk Culture B sides. The winner was Telegraph [Live], with Garden City second, just edging The Avenue (my favourite) into 3rd place.

Can it really be thirty years ago that were leaving Brussels to head north to Hilversum to mix the Junk Culture album? Yes it is!
After leaving our Gramophone Suite studio in Liverpool we became nomadic; writing and recording in The Chapel Lincolnshire, Highland Studios Inverness, Mayfair Studios London, Air Montserrat, IPC and Wisseloord. We then lived in De Haan in Belgium for 3 months prior to the release of the album.
Junk Culture is available on CD or digitally
