Release Date:12/09/2016;Notes:In 2015, Hey Colossus released two albums on Rocket Recordings, In Black and Gold in February (LAUNCH 077CD/LP) and Radio Static High in October (LAUNCH 083CD/LP). Dedicated To Uri Klangers is a look back. It's best summed up by the 3000 words that can be found on the inner sleeve of the record. The tale begins: "The 2LP compilation that's in your hands now was initially released on cassette by S.O.U.L for our tenth anniversary show, September 2013, about 50 tapes were made and sold on that night. We thought a 'Best Of' would be hilarious. We were average at that show and I'm being generous. I'd give us 5.5/10. A shame. Hacker Farm and Helm also played. It was at The Sebright Arms in London, somewhere out east..." The cassette sat in the MIE car for three years, sound tracking journeys back and forth across the country. When a new car was bought, criminally minus a tape deck, the decision was made to put it on vinyl. Included are one or two tunes from all the Hey Colossus albums released from 2003 to 2013. It includes the track "Witchfinder General Hospital" from the 12" of the same name, pressed in an edition of 100 in 2012. All vinyl versions of the albums from this era are long gone. The discography is a bit of a mess now, the band doesn't fully know and the Discogs site is not much help - Godspeed to anyone trying to buy the back catalog. This record is a fine way to dig into the first ten years. Comes in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, stacks of photos and the aforementioned spiel Edition of 500.;Track List:1.
