Title: Who Needs Tomorrow: 30 Year Retrospective
Label: Cherry Red

2017 two CD collection. Formed in Glasgow in 1986, the acclaimed indie band The Orchids recorded a string of now highly sought after singles, and three acclaimed full length releases, Lyceum (1989), Unholy Soul (1991) and Striving For The Lazy Perfection (1994) for the cult independent label Sarah Records. Following a split in 1995 at what some perceive to be the height of their career, the band reformed in 2004, subsequently putting out two further highly regarded albums - Good to be a Stranger (2007) and The Lost Star (2010). To celebrate their 30 year anniversary, Cherry Red have worked together with the band to create this 2CD package containing the best of The Orchids' previous material, plus a full CD dedicated to the band's rare and unreleased tracks. The set includes demos, alternative acoustic versions, radio performances, flexi disc singles, a cover version, and an old EP favorite - 'Underneath The Window, Underneath The Sink' - specially re-recorded just for this release, all selected and fully overseen by the band members themselves. The collection represents the recording career of The Orchids since their first physical release in August 1987. Present are 38 songs recorded in 11 different locations and featuring four different line-ups of the band. Although The Orchids, in all of their different line ups, have always been seen as a five piece ensemble, this collection features 19 musicians in all. Whole package fully remastered, with previously unreleased material sourced direct from The Orchids' collection of past recordings. Includes booklet containing background and recording information related to every one of the included tracks, plus liner notes/revealing insights from ex-BBC radio DJ John Cavanagh and The Orchids' producer and ex-One Dove band member Ian Carmichael.
