TRANSMISSION DIGIPACK CD EDITION OF PORCUPINE TREE'S 1991 DEBUT ALBUM
Having recently announced that Snapper Music will be representing Porcupine Tree’s Transmission label worldwide, new CD and LP reissues of the band’s extensive catalogue continue to roll out throughout 2021.
Porcupine Tree's 1991 debut album On The Sunday Of Life is an album that stands up as a modern day pop-psych classic.
With acid warped lyrics courtesy of Alan Duffy (the brains behind the late lamented Imaginary Records label) the album is a surreal delight containing gems such as "Jupiter Island" and "Linton Samuel Dawson" filled with quirky melodies, effected vocals and trippy backwards guitar work. "Nine Cats”, the undoubted masterpiece of the album, is pure Edward Lear styled psychedelia.
On The Sunday Of Life also hints at the direction the band would later take with more progressive influenced material such as the epic "Radioactive Toy".
Porcupine Tree released their last album, The Incident, in 2009, marking another step forward in the incredible journey of the band that began as a solo studio project created by Steven Wilson in the late eighties to a multi grammy nominated act and one of the world’s most revered live bands, selling out arenas across the globe and wowing fans with their incredible performances.
This new Transmission edition of On The Sunday Of Life is presented in a digipack with an 8 page booklet.
