Watch our planet circle
January 28, 2017
One Little Indian are releasing a box set of their Kitchens of Distinction’s back catalogue on March 3rd. This is a remastered CD collection of all four studio albums, B sides and the two BBC sessions we did. It’s available here:
I wasn’t directly involved in this collection, as my historic relationship with OLI has not been good. I didn’t want to be party to something I didn’t have direct control over. That said, it’s a good job. It’s a mostly complete document of our time with the label, featuring great liner notes and photos. Missing tracks that some commentators are complaining about are either not owned by OLI, or due to band veto. We were never going to add in music that OLI didn’t own due to their inability to account to us. Tedious but practical.
We had no control over format – so please direct your vinyl woes to OLI directly. http://www.indian.co.uk/pages/contact-us
These caveats aside I’m really glad that our OLI songs have been collected in this way. A better overview than Capsule. Though I’m sure some commentators will add their tuppenceworth.
The title is from the song In A Cave, which is probably my favourite moment with the band.
Gigs? Of course not. Don’t be silly. And don’t be rude asking for something we can’t do. This really irks me. Like asking your dead relative to rise up and hug you.
