Broadcast albums repressed to vinyl

Birmingham duo's back catalogue to be repressed to vinyl

Warp Records are repressing the album catalogue of Birmingham duo Broadcast on vinyl. Drawing on European cult cinema soundtracks, the experimentation of The BBC Radiophonic Workshop and 1960s psychedelia, Broadcast’s Trish Keenan (who died in 2011) and James Cargill are widely credited as early channelers of the hauntological current in contemporary music. Long unavailable in this format, Work And Non Work (1997), The Noise Made By People (2000), Haha Sound (2003), Tender Buttons (2005), The Future Crayon (2006) and Broadcast And The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age (2009) will be rereleased on 9 March.

Initial orders come with a booklet of album artwork by Ghost Box cofounder and longtime Broadcast collaborator Julian House.
