Two prominent forces from the '90s are returning this summer with a little case of the reissues.
Pulp are actually going all the way back to their lesser-known albums for the '80s. "It" from 1983, "Freaks" from 1987 and "Separations" from 1992 will drop on (or around -- for U.S. fans) Aug. 8 with new art and liner notes from Everett True. These aren't remasters, however, though "Freaks" will get an extra disc of goodies.
Archers of Loaf have reunited lately to play some shows together this summer, and have a little something to back it up: Merge is reissuing all four of the alt-rock band's studio sets. "Icky Mettle" from 1993 will be re-released on Aug. 2 and was remastered by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma). Rock crit Robert Christgau is writing up the new liner notes. The remaining three -- "Vee Vee," "All The Nation’s Airports" and "White Trash Heroes" -- will get theirs by the end of the year.
Archers tour dates at COS, and look out for a "Jimmy Fallon" appearance later this month.
