Mansun’s first ever Parlophone release, ONE EP is released on 12″ vinyl for the first time ever today via Kscope. This first release, back in 1996, started a theme that continued throughout the band’s time together of releasing 4 track EPs. This enabled the band to release a huge body of work, rather than being restricted to album campaigns. The lead track on ONE EP, Egg Shaped Fred, was a live favourite and had a great footage video, showing the band at the very beginning with early band members and performances.
The EP was also the first release for fan-favourite B-sides Ski Jump Nose and Lemonade Secret Drinker, together with Thief and an unnamed secret track at the end.
