Colin Newman (of WIRE) Announces Reissues Of Three Classic Solo Albums

‘A-Z’/ ‘Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish’/ ‘Not To’ Due October 28th Via Sentient Sonics
Colin Newman is best known as singer and chief songwriter with the ground breaking post-punk band WIRE. From their internationally influential 1977 debut ‘Pink Flag’ right up to 2016’s critical acclaimed ‘Nocturnal Koreans’, Newman and Wire have always been at music’s cutting edge. 
Throughout 1980-82, Newman released a series of solo work. From sound-tracking The Silence of the Lambs to being covered by This Mortal Coil, this solo work sought a place in history in it’s own right and has been unavailable for many years. 
Today we announce the reissue of three of Colin Newman’s classic solo records, to be made available in on October 28th via his own new imprint Sentient Sonics (originally released via Beggars Banquet/ 4AD):
  • A-Z’ (1980)
  • Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish’  (1981)
  • Not To’ (1982)
The ‘A-Z/ Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish/Not To’ vinyl release will consist of the 3 re-mastered original albums, released as three single albums. The ‘A-Z/ Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish/Not To’ CD release will consist of the 3 re-mastered original albums, each accompanied by a companion CD of extra tracks, B-sides & demos - many of which have never been released before, which will be released as 3 double-CDs.
