Words on Music: The Lucy Show and For Against

Two interesting upcoming releases on USA indie label Words on Music. First a reissue of December, For Against‘s long out-of-print second album from 1988. It will be released on September 27, 2005. It has been remastered and is issued in a new six-panel digipak design by Bruce Licher. The CD will also include two unreleased videos for "Autocrat" and "Echelons" from their Echelons album.

Coming this autumn Words On Music will also re-release The Lucy Show’s 1986 album Mania – out of print for more than 15 years!

Mania rose to the very top of the North American college radio charts in 1986 by injecting gorgeous, poignant melodies onto a textured soundscape, ricocheting with shimmering guitars from the production of the legendary John Leckie (New Order, Stone Roses, Radiohead, Trashcan Sinatras, Felt).
The Words On Music re-release of Mania remasters all 10 album tracks, plus 7 additional bonus tracks (5 of which have never been commercially released). The re-release will also include the video to The Lucy Show’s MTV hit "A Million Things." Mania‘s cover art and layout has been designed by Lucy Show singer & bassist Rob Vandeven and will include several rare photographs of the band as well as liner notes written by The Big Takeover editor Jack Rabid.
