2CD edition of 1st album ever released on Kscope – re-mastered, remixed and featuring bonus disc
The last few years have seen The Pineapple Thief truly emerge onto a higher stage… bigger and better tours, triumphant festival slots, recording at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studios, artwork designed by Storm Thorgerson and new management all give the sense of an act destined for greater things. In 2012, the band took the next step on this journey with the release of All The Wars, their new studio album.
In association with the Kscope 5th anniversary celebrations, this edition of 2008’s Tightly Unwound – the first ever album release on Kscope – has been newly re-mastered and remixed by 360 in London. It will also now feature a bonus disc with tracks from the Dawn Raids EPs plus and acoustic version of ‘Shoot First’.
“Our world was very different 5 years ago. The Pineapple Thief was very much an underground affair, with a small but loyal band of followers. Kscope, a name conjured up by Steven Wilson as a play on kaleidoscope, didn’t exist as a label back then. It was only when Steven introduced us that the concept of a dedicated label was born, and we were lucky enough to be their first signing. The band was effectively reborn on that day. Now, after 5 years, the label has become a huge part of the post-progressive renaissance. As I sit here in my studio remixing this album, my mind is cast back to 2008 when we were playing a launch gig for Tightly Unwound, in front of 40 people in pub in London. How different our world is now.”
