Following ex-frontman Paul Draper’s solo success, the iconic #1 debut album from British legends Mansun is celebrated with this 21st anniversary remastered edition.
Mansun was one of the most iconic and innovative British bands of the late 90s with Parlophone. They released four classic albums – ‘Attack of the Grey Lantern’ (1997), ‘Six’ (1998), ‘Little Kix’ (2000) and the compilation ‘Kleptomania’ following the band’s split – as well as a popular and now rare series of EPs. Kscope, having now acquired this impressive catalogue, are running a thorough reissue series that delves into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio and visual material, including the much-awaited full remaster of their #1 album ‘Attack of the Grey Lantern’.
The band’s output launched them into a fervent cult following, which now holds the annual UK Mansun Convention and started the petition that called for frontman Paul Draper to release his debut solo album ‘Spooky Action’ in August 2017. The solo album, also released on Kscope, hit #19 in the UK album charts and led to a sold-out UK solo tour, during which he performed Mansun’s definitive and most popular track “Wide Open Space”, and its live recording features on Draper’s new live album ‘Live at Scala’. Due to fan-driven popular demand, Paul then played an ambitious second solo tour in early 2018, performing ‘Spooky Action’ as well as ‘Attack of the Grey Lantern’.
Formats for the 21st anniversary edition include CD in mediabook packaging, deluxe book set (3 CDs and a DVD in a 72-page hardback book) and 2LP gatefold vinyl.
