Six By Seven was a band from Nottingham, England that formed in 1994. They released three albums for Mantra Records via Beggars Banquet, toured extensively, had a couple of hit singles, played Later With Jools Holland, recorded Peel sessions...all parts of a recipe for success, yet they remained relatively unknown despite a considerable underground following. Inspired by the Pistols and the Stranglers as well as My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth and Mercury Rev, Six By Seven straddled a fine line between post-Brit Pop, British rock and a much edgier kind of punk.
Now they're reissuing their 2000 classic The Closer You Get, which is expanded to a double LP containing Peel Sessions and B-sides. The Closer You Get reissue will be presented in all its former glory, without being remastered or tampered with, and will sound the same as it did when it originally came out. The additional LP will be polybagged together with the album. It will feature Six By Seven's third Peel session on one side and various b-sides and other Peel sessions on the other.
"The Closer You Get's status as a timeless masterpiece remains intact." – Drowned In Sound
