Microdisney

everybody is fantastic : expanded edition

cherry red



cd

Released: 6th Nov 2013

£9.99


this 1983 debut derived its paradoxical power from its 2 frontmen, vocalist cathal coughlan - a dark, brooding lyricist given to angst-ridden, incendiary wordplay - & guitarist sean o'hagan, a gifted composer of atmospheric, seductive pop fare.

microdisney began recording in their native town of cork, ireland. after relocating to london, they signed to rough trade, & utilised john porter (producer of the smiths) to produce their debut album, ‘everybody is fantastic’. at this time, the band became acquainted with john peel, who championed their music, & gave them the first of several celebrated peel sessions, with 8 tracks on this expanded version lifted from those radio slots.
