Interpol genudgiver Turn on the Bright Lights

For ti år siden brød amerikanske Interpol stort igennem med debutalbummet Turn on the Bright Lights. Siden har Interpol udgivet 3 albums, uden helt at nå samme niveau.

Nu udkommer Turn on the Bright Lights i en ny-mastereret version med en deluxe hardback bog med masser af ikke tidligere udgivne fotos. Bogen fylder 48 sider i cd-udgaven og 28 sider i vinyludgaven. Udover bogen, så indeholder både cd’en og vinylen en ekstra skive med bonusnumre, demoer, b-sider og tidligere uudgivne numre, samt en dvd.

Om Turn on the Bright Lights udtaler Interpol:

In 2002, we released our first album, Turn On the Bright Lights. We had waited close to five years for the opportunity to record an album. Needless to say this was a memorable moment for us. We never had any expectations for how the album would be received. We just wanted to present our music as an album to anyone who would be open to hearing it. It was incredible to finally tour and see people react to these songs. We never could have imagined that the album would have reached so many people throughout the world.

We spent a good deal of time this past year digging through our archives and asking others to dig through theirs in the hopes of uncovering some forgotten material. The result of our hunting and gathering has yielded this Tenth Anniversary Edition of Turn On the Bright Lights. We wanted to do something special for the fans who have always supported us. We wanted to do something special for the best fans in the world. We hope you enjoy it.

I mine unge dage stod menuen stort set kun på metal, men siden teenagerårene har jeg været igennem 60er-musikken, klynkerocken, diverse singer-songwritere, freak folken og er nu havnet et sted hvor jeg er åben for det meste. Dog med en forkærlighed for det amerikanske.
