Last year The Pineapple Thief launched Kscope with the critically acclaimed album, Tightly Unwound.
While the album was many people’s introduction to the band they have actually spent the past ten years quietly building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 25,000 records and nurturing their ‘bittersweet’ progressive sound.
This release is the first in a series of re-mastered reissues from the band’s back catalogue.
Little Man is the band’s fifth album and was originally released in 2006 on the Cyclops label.
Bruce Soord had these recollections about the album:
‘Little Man was one of the last releases we had on our previous label. In fact, it was this album that got us noticed by and ultimately signed to Kscope, thanks in no small part to Steven Wilson putting in a good word for us. Unfortunately, this album has been out of print for some time.
Little Man remains one of my favourite TPT releases. I am grateful that I have had the chance to remix and re-master this album as I was never entirely happy with the original mixes. Back in 2006, life was very different, as was the quality of my studio. This new version has sorted out all my gripes. We’ve taken all the original multitracks and remixed the songs from the ground up, but always maintaining the spirit of the originals. It was painful to live with what I always felt was an unfinished mix. It now sounds as I wanted it to be heard.’
