CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
Closed For Business finally reveals the full scope of Mansun’s tumultuous career.
It brings together their original albums, the dozens of overlooked gems featured on their EPs, unissued demos and studio out-takes, BBC radio sessions, and full-length concert recordings. Paul Draper has also opened his archives to provide the raw material for the set’s unmatched collection of Mansun memorabilia, notes, lyrics and previously unheard recordings. This box set finally does full justice to the vision of a band whose almost reckless disregard for the rules of the game reaped magnificent rewards.
