Geographic, the Domino imprint label set up in the year 2000 by Stephen McRobbie and Katrina Mitchell of The Pastels, are pleased to announce the reissue of three of their seminal label releases: Maher Shalal Hash Baz’s experimental ‘Blues du Jour’, The Pastels’ ‘The Last Great Wilderness’ - the score to director David Mackenzie’s film of the same name - and Lightships’ astounding ‘Electric Cables’.
Lightships’ debut album, the brilliant ‘Electric Cables’, was released on Geographic in 2012. At its core is Gerard Love, enigmatic bassist and founding member of Teenage Fanclub. The release won supporters across the board, with MOJO extolling in a 5* review the “sun-baked panoramas which dominate the record” and The Guardian praising Love’s “wholly distinctive [songwriting]… it’s a record to cuddle up and cherish.”
“Gerard spent a long time on it trying to find a sound that was different from Teenage Fanclub,” McRobbie comments. “He used a well-chosen collection of musicians including Tom Crossley from The Pastels and International Airport. It’s a glorious record, quite introspective in places but bold and timeless too. Everything on it seems to fit in place.”
Available to independent retailers on standard weight black vinyl into white polylined inner sleeve with digital download card and 4-page booklet.
