20 years of The Go! Team’s Thunder Lightning Strike, 20 years of lasers through tracing paper, orange tone oscillations, cable access hangover, music made through sunburnt circuits, a K-tel dream sequence, a haunted vision mixer, station wagon-core, straight to video, VHS in distress, something in the fog, fluff on the needle, chromakey constellations, a hovercraft on the fret board, maxing the minute maid, faxing a car alarm, a Morse code pep talk, etch-a-sketch jackknife, a daily Haley’s comet, light sound colour motion, a holiday from yourself..

This exclusive edition of 500 is machine numbered and pressed on red and yellow splatter clear vinyl. It comes with an exclusive7”, featuring new versions of Hold Yr Terror Close by The Pastels and The Orielles and a recreation of the original CD-R version of the album which stands up as a document of band leader Ian Parton’s unique method of working. The double disc CD also comes with the recreation of the original CD-R version.This final reissue is a celebration of a record that sounded out of time in 2004, dripping in future nostalgia, and which twenty years on still sounds as unique and un-categorisable as it did when it arrived.
