1991 Release Remastered from First Generation Tapes by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Peter J. Moore!

Twenty-plus years after their last reverb trail dissipated, the remains of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet have reconstituted. The Men were first reanimated in 2012 and have been semi-active since, revealing a stature and distinct influence that has only grown since their original incarnation.

The group existed originally between 1984 and 1995, and released three albums and twelve singles, appeared on numerous compilations (including the formative It Came From Canada series), toured extensively throughout North America and England, were one of the first Canadian bands to record a Peel Session for BBC D.J. John Peel, beat David Foster out of one of the two Juno's they were nominated for, backed B-52's vocalist Fred Schneider on his Just Fred album, and scored a couple of feature films and the television series Kids in the Hall.

After years of being out-of-print Yep Roc Records will be launching an extensive reissue campaign of the Shadowy Men recordings, including their original three albums – Savvy Show Stoppers (1988), Dim The Lights, Chill The Ham (1991), and Sport Fishin' (1993). Each album has been remastered from first generation tapes by Grammy Award winning engineer Peter J. Moore and comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with expanded artwork, liner notes by Bon Von Wheelie, Bry Webb and Scott McCaughey, and contextual essays by band associates.
