500 limited edition • 3LP vinyl box • Signed by Pete Shelley
The Buzzcocks’ Pete Shelley‘s early ’80s work with producer Martin Rushent is celebrated in a new and highly limited vinyl box set The Genetic Years.
The set features the two albums Homosapien (1981) and XL1 (1983) which saw Shelley embrace new a new sound thanks to new technology – such as drum machines, synthesizers and sequencers – and Rushent’s well-equipped studio (called Genetic Sound).
The brilliant Telephone Operator from XL1 is a highlight from the two long-players and Shelley and Rushent really went to town creating remixes, dubs and instrumentals which can be found on the third record in this box set.
The vinyl is contained within an outer rigid board slipcase and the albums come pressed on 180g vinyl in spot varnished original sleeves with black inner bags. A booklet contains notes by broadcaster and writer David Quantick and lyrics. This set also comes with a colour photo SIGNED by Pete Shelley.
The Genetic Years is released on 15 June 2018.
