On 12th September 1983 Bronski Beat played their first gig at Heaven, London. September 12th 2018 and London Records announce the release of a new and enhanced version of the band’s groundbreaking debut Age Of Consent re-mastered from the original analogue tapes and available as a two CD set and picture disc. With the iconic artwork files long since lost London Records turned to Bruce Gill, whose father created the original designs, and along with his Dad redrew the album text and worked on a new layout for CD, vinyl and picture disc. The reissue is available on vinyl for the first time since its original release and limited edition pink vinyl, CD and picture disc. Vinyl formats include a CD of album & bonus tracks.
CD1 features re-mastered versions of the original ten tracks along with 12” versions of singles ‘Why?’, ‘Smalltown Boy’ and ‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’. CD2 is comprised of material from the London Records archive, previously un-available with most notably the un-released and unheard demo ‘The Other Side Of The Tracks’. Remixes by new kid on the block Wax Wings, Arnaud Rebotini – composer of the movie ‘120 BPM’ which featured his take on Smalltown Boy – and British house producer KDA aka Kris Di Angelis.
