Release:2020 / Original

Black 140g Vinyl, Standard Sleeve. The Chills' Second Album From 1990 Is Their Much-Praised Major Label Debut That Includes The Effervescent, Euphoric Opener 'Heavenly Pop Hit'. Back On Vinyl For The First Time In Three Decades, This Much Sought-After Lp Has Finally Been Reissued On Fire Records - A Super Sweet Moment Of Ear Candy, Perfect For Rediscovery. 'Submarine Bells' Had Folk-Like Rounds, Brusque Punk Swagger, Psychedelic Hues And Phillipps' Off-Kilter Vocal; All Accent, All Attitude, Soft, Then Hard. It Made For A Magnificent Half Hour Plus, Too Good To Transcend To The Airwaves, So Timeless It Still Simmers Beautifully. A Rich Tapestry Of Sound With A Nod To Early Teardrop Explodes And A Host Of Indie Pop Legends. There's The Nagging, Incessant 'Familiarity Breeds Contempt' Midway Through, And The Glorious Baroque Pop Of The Closing Title Track. It Is Music That Became Acclaimed As Birthing The Term 'Indie Pop', But It Was So Much More Than That.. "Utterly Immaculate" Pitchfork // "The Chills Distilled Post-Punk With The Sweet Delivery Of Phillipps, Making It Sound Like The Fall Paying Homage To Prefab Sprout. Something That Rare." Perfect Sound Forever // "A Lovely Record Indeed, A Mere Thirty-Six Minutes And Not A Second Wasted_ Such A Fantastic Release " - Allmusic

Chills, The
Kaleidoscope World Black Vinyl Edition
2LP | 2016 | NZ | Original (Flying Nun)
34,99 €*
Release:2016 / NZ – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
“Kaleidoscope World” is not just the starting point for The Chills, but a story of how it all began and an insight into the world of New Zealand guitar-pop and the Dunedin Sound - an influence which carries on to indie-pop bands around the world today. Originally released in 1986, the compilation captures the best of the magical early period recordings of The Chills and simply oozes excitement and possibility. The zany brightness of the cover art against the black background only hints at the wonder contained within. Now re-issued again on a deluxe 2xLP featuring six bonus, B-sides, demos and live tracks plus an expanded gatefold cover with photos, posters and liner notes from journalist Martin Aston. As Flying Nun label founder Roger Shepherd put it – “Kaleidoscope World” is complex, varied but simple and direct. Musically sophisticated but joyous, poppy and accessible.

Chills, The
Soft Bomb
LP | 2020 | Original (Fire)
29,99 €*
Release:2020 / Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Black 140g Vinyl, Standard Sleeve. If Ever There Was Buried Treasure, A Hidden Gem, Lurking On The Chills' Martin Phillipps' Shelf Of Good Things, Then 1992's 'Soft Bomb' Is It. Back On Vinyl For The First Time In Almost 3 Decades, The Potency, Poetry And Passion Of This Album Is Lovingly Repackaged By Fire Records. After The Band's Major Label Debut Two Years Earlier, 'Submarine Bells' (Slash/Warner Brothers), And Its Critical Acclaim, The Band Dissolved Leaving Phillips To Follow It Up Alone. The Album Is A Roller Coaster 17-Song, 51 Minute Trip, A Conceptual Classic That Embraces Styles And Genres And Drops One-Liners Of Personal Experience, Grandiose Longing And Some Beautifully Observed Moments, A Record That Inevitably Split Opinions As It Moved Away From 'Submarine Bells' Successful Sound And Arrived Amid Turbulent Times. "'Soft Bomb' Was The Chills' Finest Hour," Claimed Perfect Sound Forever A Few Years Back, "For The Recording, Phillipps Took Advantage Of Having The Back Support Of A Major Label And Brought In Giants Of Contemporary American Music Like Van Dyke Parks And Ex Db's Peter Holsapple As Collaborators, Producing A Conceptual Song-Cycle Meisterwork." Phillipps Took A Leaf From Van Dyke Parks Eccentric Storytelling Style, Dropped In Myriad Styles; There Was Jangle, Phillipps' Clever Lyrics, A "Drunken Piece Of Music Hall" (Allmusic), An Offbeat Homage To Randy Newman, Some Grown Up Licks, Three Thematic Interludes, Phillipps' Trademark Quirky Indie Pop And Much More. Van Dyke Parks Contributed Haunting Strings To The Filmic 'Water Wolves', It's A Symphonic, Sideways Look At The World; Baroque On A Roll. In The Mix It Adds To The Drama Of The Piece, The Penultimate Moment Before The Final 'Soft Bomb' Interlude Fills The Space And Proceedings Evaporate. "'Soft Bomb' Was The Chills' Finest Hour." Perfect Sound Forever. //
