Field Mice | Skywriting + Singles

LTM present the first reissue of the entire works of the Field Mice (on 3 CD's), the cult South London band who recorded for the Sarah label between 1988 and 1991. They later became Northern Picture Library and chief songwriter Bobby Wratten now fronts Trembling Blue Stars.
Skywriting + Singles combines the second Field Mice album Skywriting (released in June 1990) with all tracks from the EPs The Autumn Store and So Said Kay. For the album the band had expanded from a duo to a three piece, and drawing influence from the dance and ambient scenes. Hence nine minutes of sequenced rhythms on Triangle, and the extended sample-barrage Humblebee - whose 'chocolate/love/sex' mantra would become a bestselling teeshirt design. The Autumn Store (January 1990) and So Said Kay (September 1990, a Melody maker Single of the Week) return the band to gentler pastures, with this wealth of middle-period material completed by two rare compilation tracks - Other Galaxies and This Is Not Here (1998) - as well as three previously unreleased tracks: I Thought Wrong, Right As Rain and Heart Disease Called Love.
The CD runs for over 90 minutes over two discs, features 21 remastered tracks, and contains detailed biographical notes in the booklet.
