Josef K | The Only Fun In Town

Crepuscule presents a 180 gms new black vinyl pressing (500 copies) of The Only Fun In Town, the influential debut album by iconic Scottish guitar group Josef K, originally released on Postcard Records in July 1981.
Speedily recorded in a small studio in Brussels, the album was a defiantly abrasive, serrated long-player in the mould of the second Velvets album, Josef K having already shelved a more conventional recording. Sharp-edged pop singles abound - It's Kinda Funny, Sorry For Laughing, Revelation - along with rattling Haig/Ross twin guitar classics such as Fun 'n' Frenzy, Heart Of Song, Forever Drone and The Angle.
The Only Fun In Town topped the independent charts on release and remains a canonical post-punk album. This 2014 remaster arrives housed in a handsome gatefold sleeve, and by way of bonus tracks also features several Postcard single A and B sides including Radio Drill Time and Chance Meeting. The 4th side features all four tracks from JoKay's celebrated John Peel Session in June 1981, including Heaven Sent and The Missionary.
Also available on digipak CD (TWI 052CD) with different bonus tracks.
