First time ever on vinyl. Recorded from 1979 – 1980 Repeat / Metal is essentially This Heat’s third proper album, although it was released posthumously in 1993. Arguably their most radical work, Repeat / Metal features side-length tape experiments ranging from the dubby drum loops of Repeat, a 20 minute edit / reworking of their landmark piece 24 Track Loop, to the gamelan-inspired sounds of Metal, an electro-acoustic work recorded outside of their studio, Cold Storage, and helmed by member Gareth Williams. Following Modern Classics Recordings’ 2016 reissue campaign to mark the band’s 40th anniversary, these new releases Made Available, Repeat / Metal and Live 80 – 81 round out the story. Each release is sanctioned by surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward and features newly remastered audio sourced from original tapes.
