Released originally by Wall of Sound sublabel We Love

Fletcher in a home garden studio – aka The Shed – on the
Isle of Wight, and went on to receive a nomination for the
Mercury Music Prize, 2003.

Singles from the album include “No Trophy”, “Punchbag”,

Remastered at Electric Mastering in 2023, this new vinyl

matching the album’s iconic cover.

This limited vinyl will also contain a download code for two
bonus dub tracks.

A newly curated, expanded 1CD will also be released. This

unreleased song, “Seeds”.
