More Info

The Associates debut LP The Affectionate Punch further cemented their growing reputation as sometimes startling, often enthralling innovators who recognised no musical rules. This 2 CD expanded edition features the original LP in a new, hi resolution transfer from tape, and CD 2 features one previously unreleased track. The booklet features liner notes by Billy MacKenzie biographer Tom Doyle, reproductions of original promotional material and memorabilia, and previously unpublished photos.

“These records (Fourth Drawer Down, The Affectionate Punch, Sulk) remain an Olympian achievement….a musical best, forever gold.” **** (four stars each) Mojo June 2016

“Kicks off with a title song which wears its Berlin trilogy Bowie influences proudly on its sleeve – a taut and angular collection of industrial sounds.” (9/10) Vive Le Rock! June 2016
