Crispy Ambulance | The Plateau Phase

Factory Benelux presents a new CD edition of The Plateau Phase, the debut album by Manchester postpunk group Crispy Ambulance, originally issued in March 1982.
Recorded at Strawberry 2 with producer Chris Nagle, this acclaimed album captured Crispy Ambulance at the peak of their creative powers. "One of the best albums Britain's second city has unleashed" (Q, 03/2006); "Cold and ferocious, but with enough inventive melody to lighten the black abyss of the overall mood" (Les Inrockuptibles, 02/2012); "An enthralling glimpse at a moment in musical history when the DIY ethos of punk gradually gave way to experiments with electronics and song structures" (NME, 01/2000).
Bonus tracks include extended 12"single The Presence/Concorde Square, produced by the legendary Martin Hannett, and farewell single Sexus. This new Factory Benelux edition also features enhanced original artwork by renowned Belgian typographer Lucien De Roeck (1915-2002), and live photography. Mailorder copies come with FBN slipcase.
