Description

Battle of Bosworth Terrace on LP

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Digitally remastered collection of previously unreleased late '70s recordings by one of New Zealand's most beloved cult bands. The Spies possessed a lithe but keen awareness of both the Canterbury and DIY movements that were taking place back in Old Blighty. THE BATTLE OF BOSWORTH TERRANCE imagines a bridge connecting Kevin Ayers and the Desperate Bicycles - a much-needed safe passage over a mysterious chasm you never knew was there. The fact that these recordings exist at all is nothing short of miraculous serendipity; the story is beautifully told in the liner notes. If you're thinking forgery, theft, drugs and distinctive footwear, congrats, the sniffer is working just fine. Besides the heretofore unknown music, also included are photographs, lyrics and text. It's only taken 30+ years, but the larcenous abandon that was The Spies is finally willing and able to be heard, read about and seen for the first time.
