CLOSED FOR BUSINESS

25TH ANNIVERSARY 25 DISC DELUXE BOX SET

This strictly limited edition box set is the ultimate Mansun collection. 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.

‘WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE HATED’ FROM UPCOMING ‘SIX’ 21ST ANNIVERSARY REISSUE

Listen to a previously unheard version of ‘When The Wind Blows’, from the ‘SIX’ 21st Anniversary re-issue Deluxe 4 Disc Book Edition!

“This was an early version of When The Wind Blows that we’ve included in the outtakes disc of the 4 disc book however, we made the track a bit more obtuse for its final release. Listening back now, I wish I’d have worked more on this organic version and possibly put it on the album itself.

There are 14 tracks on the Demos, Rarities and Outtakes disc, including three outtakes of Tom Baker’s narration on the album. There’s also a completely unreleased song by Dominic Chad, a subliminal hidden track from within Serotonin, Dominic Chad singing Inverse Midas and alternative versions of Cancer and Fallout amongst many other gems.” PD
