Soul Mining (National Album Day – Reissue, Stereo LP)

Originally released in 1983, ‘Soul Mining’ is the major label debut album by post-punk outfit The The, fronted by Matt Johnson.

Featuring the singles ‘Uncertain Smile’, ‘Perfect’, and the iconic ‘This Is The Day’, the album, which is Gold-certified in the UK, has been long out of print on vinyl, except as part of a limited run 30th anniversary 2 LP box set reissue in 2014.

Featuring a host of talented musicians, including JG Thirwell (aka Foetus, Manorexia and Steroid Maximus), Zeke Manyika (Orange Juice), electronic DIY pioneer Thomas Leer and Jools Holland, Matt Johnson set out with a clear vision in mind – to produce an album that felt cinematic; a record of width, depth and texture and one which avoided the mundane line-up of two guitars, bass and drums.

Lauded with critical acclaim (‘Soul Mining is a brilliant and very idiosyncratic album’ – The Guardian ; ‘Like shaving lotion applied to cleanse a wound, Johnson’s songs are attractively scented and sting like hell’ – Melody Maker) the music and lyrics of ‘Soul Mining’ are as fresh and relevant today as they were almost 40 years ago.
