Super Furry Animals Radiator reissue

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Super Furry Animals‘ 1997 album Radiator. To mark the occasion, the band is releasing an expanded reissue of the album, featuring a bonus disc of B-sides and demos, plus the Ice Hockey Hair EP and other rarities. It’s out on July 28 and currently available to pre-order. One of the rare tracks is a cover of The Smiths’ “The Boy With the Thorn In His Side,” which you can stream below.

“For three, contented months we lived in a house in constant earshot of military aircraft, to make Radiator the album that it was,” the band says in a press release. “The original album sounded great when we emerged from our exile on Anglesey, and still does, but technology moves with the times and now we can hear it in higher-resolution, as nature intended.

“We’ve forgotten as much as we ever knew, so the rarities, demos and b-sides on the second disc are as much a surprise to us as they are to you.”
