BELLY – Star (Released 17th July)

£21.99 – Limited Marble  x 2 LP & CD

THE 1993 CLASSIC ALBUM REISSUED LIMITED GATEFOLD 2LP EDITION PRESSED ON WHITE MARBLED VINYL, WITH CD INCLUDED
Following her inestimable contributions as a founding member of both Throwing Muses and The Breeders, Tanya Donelly took centre stage to form Belly with brothers Tom and Chris Gorman on guitars and drums respectively and Fred Abong on bass. Around the release of their debut album Star in 1993, Fred left the band and was replaced by Gail Greenwood.
Among a wave of essential new American guitar acts in the early-90s, it was Belly’s spikey dreampop that helped set them apart. Catching fire with singles ‘Feed The Tree’ and ‘Gepetto’, Star saw them grab their moment and catapulted them in to the mainstream, selling almost two million copies worldwide and earning them two GRAMMY nominations. A second album followed in 1995, King , before they called it quits a year later
Twenty years on and excitingly the latter line-up of Tanya, Tom, Chris and Gail are back and will be performing both albums this summer on tours of both the UK and US. To complement, 4AD are reissuing Star on vinyl on the 15th of July 2016. Coming with updated artwork from Chris Gorman and package design from Chris Bigg, the new version is now spread across two LPs, is being pressed on white marbled vinyl and will be presented in a gatefold sleeve. It will also include a bonus CD of the album.
