Josef K - The Only Fun In Town

Format: 2LP
Availability: Out of stock



2022 repress. Limited to just 500 copies, Double 180 Gram Vinyl housed in Gatefold Sleeve.

Les Disques du Crepuscule label presents a new remastered edition of 'The Only Fun In Town', the influential debut album by iconic Scottish guitar group Josef K, originally released on Postcard Records in July 1981.

Speedily recorded in a small studio in Brussels, 'The Only Fun In Town' was a defiantly abrasive, serrated long-player in the mould of the second Velvets album, Josef K having already shelved a more conventional recording. Sharp-edged pop singles abound - 'It's Kinda Funny', 'Sorry For Laughing', 'Revelation' - along with rattling Haig/Ross twin guitar classics such as 'Fun 'n' Frenzy', 'Heart of Song', 'Forever Drone' and 'The Angle'.

'The Only Fun In Town' topped the independent charts on release and remains a canonical post-punk album. This 2014 remaster is pressed on double vinyl and arrives housed in a handsome gatefold sleeve, and by way of bonus tracks also features several 'Postcard' single A and B sides including 'Radio Drill Time' and 'Chance Meeting'. Side 4 features all four tracks from JoKay's celebrated John Peel Session in June 1981, including 'Heaven Sent' and 'The Missionary'.
