Fridge Album Expanded for 2xCD Reissue
Catherine Lewis reports:
UK electronic post-rockers Fridge will soon have another album available in the
United States. Their latest album, Happiness, was the first of their
records to be available domestically, as a co-release between Temporary Residence
and Brainwashed last year. These two labels are working together again to re-release
Fridge's 1999 album, Eph, as a two-disc set with eight bonus tracks.
Eph was their third album and was released initially by Go! Beat. Their
two previous albums, Ceefax (1997) and Semaphore (1998), were
released on Trevor Jackson's Output label, along with a huge number of seven- and
twelve-inches which were compiled onto a two-disc set called Sevens and
Twelves. There's no word yet as to whether any of Fridge's earlier records
will be released in the U.S. in the coming months.
Fridge, who had a successful tour opening for Low last autumn, despite the theft
of all their gear in Massachusetts, will be playing a few gigs in the UK in
February and March. Temporary Residence and Brainwashed have set the release date
for Eph as late March.
