Menswear | Extra Material - RSD21
No band epitomised Britpop more than Menswe@r Singer Johnny Dean, guitarists Chris Gentry and Simon White, bassist Stuart Black and drummer Matt Everitt formed in London in mid 1994, playing a handful of gigs that prompted a label bidding war and countless magazine covers.
They delivered a string of UK Top 20 singles: 'I'll Manage Somehow', 'Sleeping In', 'Stardust', 'Being Brave' and the undeniable Britpop classic 'Daydreamer'.
While the speed of their success surprised some; their style, attitude and riotous live shows defined the times and they became one of the most popular bands of 1995.
This new double LP has been lovingly compiled by members of the band and includes the demos, singles, B sides, rarities and live tracks.
Pressed for the first time ever on vinyl, 180g heavyweight White and Orange LP. Presented in a wide spine with printed inner sleeves. The inner sleeves includes a note by Steve Lamacq, photographs and a Q&A with the band.
