Super Furry Animals have announced a new deluxe vinyl boxset, ‘Super Furry Animals at the BBC’.
The release will be available from 23rd November, as a heavyweight 180g vinyl four-disc box set, an even-more-limited vinyl five-disc set, CD and download. Pre-orders go up on 12th October via www.pledgemusic.com/superfurryanimals.
It covers eight sessions recorded especially for BBC Radio One, including one unreleased song. The CD and digital versions will also include three tracks from their 1999 Cardiff Indoor Arena gig.
“The five, excitable kids of the Super Furry Animals saw many wonders of the modern world through our innocent eyes, but finding ourselves playing songs in John Peel’s home, or in the carpeted muffle of Maida Vale, elevated the experience to new levels,” the group explain.
“Our thanks go to those rescuing the recordings from our dusty lofts, Kliph Scurlock and Donal Whelan, and the surgical attention to detail by the great artistic minds of Mark James and Pete Fowler. Also, long live public broadcasting.”
