The Boo Radleys reveal vinyl reissue to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their nineties genrehopping masterpiece ‘Giant Steps’ NME’s 1993 Album Of The Year, named in the Top 20 of Pitchfork’s The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time and lauded as one of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, The Boo Radleys’ classic album, Giant Steps will be reissued, on special remastered vinyl almost 30 years to the day since its original release. The band’s genreambiguous and widelyacclaimed masterpiece will become available to fans old and new on 1st September 2023 via TwoPiers. Only the second of their five albums to be released on the legendary Creation Records, at a time when label mates including Slowdive, Teenage Fanclub and Ride were also casting long shadows across the indie landscape, prethe Oasis hurricane making landfall at the label, Giant Steps broke into the canon of great, experimental rock albums soon after its release. It’s first single, Lazarus, issued as a standalone release in November 1992, its blend of brass and guitarsquall and acutely introspective lyrics, gave a hint of what was to come and remains lodged in the band’s mostloved and bestknown songs. For the 2023 reissue, Lazarus’ 12′ version appears on the allformats track listing for the first time. Recorded at London’s Protocol Studios, where Carr and Brown took on selfproduction duties with support from engineer, Andy Wilkinson, The Boo Radleys set about responding to their shared sense of dissatisfaction with their 1992 album, Everything’s Alright Forever. Free to do as they please, they set about making a record of complete artistic freedom, bringing in reggae Upon 9th And Fairchild, dance Rodney King and irresistible, warped indie pop Barney And Me influences into the studio and, without limitation, weaved them into the satisfyingly complex fabric of Giant Steps. Snapshot incidentals, intermissions and betweenradiostation static introoutros added to the sense of unrestrained exploration. Writing about the album, drummer, Cieka reflected on Giant Steps, stating ‘Creation loved it, peoples reactions seemed really positive. I do listen to it from time to time and still find great moments I’d forgotten about. I think it stands up pretty well today. Im always left feeling happy to have been a part of the record.’ The Boo Radleys LP is available for home delivery from Vinyl Records London, only £35
