Drag City reissue Nuno Canavarro's Plux Quba

This November Drag City will reissue Nuno Canavarro’s Plux Quba on vinyl

Drag City has announced the reissue of Portuguese composer Nuno Canavarro’s Plux Quba. Originally released in 1988 on the Ama Romanta label, the album became something of a cult item after it was discovered by Christoph Heemann. He subsequently shared his find with a circle of friends including Jim O’Rourke, Jan St Werner, C-Schulz, Frank Dommert and Georg Odijk at a 1991 get-together in Cologne, Germany. The album gained popularity when O’Rourke chose to make it the first record to come out on his Moikai label. O'Rourke reissued it again in 2005, but it has since been out of print.

Nuno Canavarro’s Plux Quba will be released on LP and MP3 by Drag City on 20 November.
