Saint Etienne reissue their back catalogue
Posted at 6:01 PM, 05 May 2009 -

Saint Etienne will be reissuing their entire back catalogue, with each original album featuring a bonus CD of b-sides, rare tracks and unreleased material. First up are Foxbase Alpha (1991) and Continental (1997), both released on May 18th.

Continental was a Japanese-only compilation of Saint Etienne's non-album singles, cover versions and new material, recorded in 1996-97. It featured "He's On The Phone", Saint Etienne's biggest hit single, as well as the Balearico (Brian Higgins & Matt Gray) remix of "Burnt Out Car" and the Brian Higgins-produced cover of "Stormtrooper in Drag".

The album now receives its first ever release outside of Japan and has been remastered and expanded to 2 discs, including four previously unreleased tracks. The release is packaged in the luxurious Deluxe Edition style and comes with a booklet packed with brand new sleeve notes, images and memorabilia.

Following on from these inaugural re-issues will be So Tough and Sound of Water in the summer, Tiger Bay and Finisterre in the autumn, and Good Humour and Tales From Turnpike House in early 2010, along with all of their remixes on Casino Classics.
