Blending the catchy hooks of pop with the experimental sounds of avant-prog and "RIO", Nick Prol & The Proletarians serve to you their own psychedelic bowl of art rock soup they call "Pop in Opposition".
This is the debut album from the group put together by Nick to play his particular style of catchy pop with experimental sounds, found sound and avant-prog element, along with bucket loads of humor. This is really Pop In Opposition. The songs are typically 1 to 3 minutes long with 23 on the album. This clearly reminds one of Bob Drakes style of short punchy high energy pop that doesn't stick around to overstay its welcome…
Released in the wake of Subterranea's success, The Lost Attic: A Collection of Rarities (1983-1999) is exactly what the title says. The reference to Tales From the Lush Attic, IQ's first album (its second if one counts the self-released cassette Seven Stories Into Eight), indicates most of the material included here focuses on the periods when Peter Nicholls was with the band (1983-1985 and 1991-1999), whereas the previous collection J'Ai Pollette D'Arnu was more centered on the Paul Menel years. The Lost Attic includes two unreleased songs from the Subterranea sessions, many fan club-only releases and compilation tracks, a couple of oddities, and three songs from a 1984 BBC session.
The 30th anniversary special edition of ‘Tales’ is a double disc hard back 32 page book with lots of extras, including the complete remix of the album and a DVD featuring live video footage of material from ‘Tales’ along with a host of MP3 files, original mixes, audio commentary and previously unreleased writing/rehearsal/demo material. GEP are set to release the 2013 remix of ‘Tales from the Lush Attic’ on 21st January 2013 (surprisingly enough) in both a double disc CD/DVD format and on vinyl.
