Furniture, the ‘Brilliant Mind’ Hit Makers, must have been one of the most out-of-time (and unluckiest) 80s bands. Only 1,000 copies of their masterpiece, the album The Wrong People, were pressed, then their label Stiff went bust the week it was released. It remained unavailable for 15 years, when Cherry Red managed to cut through the legal red tape and released it on CD (for the record, I must declare my involvement in this).
Now, reissue label Emotional Rescue have reissued the (pre-Stiff) debut mini-album When The Boom Was On and a new compilation EP of four 12″ singles tracks, including a previously-unreleased full-length mix of Bullet.
Out now on 140g vinyl or download (including 24/96 hi-res from Qobuz).
