Swervedriver I Wasn't Born To Lose You on 2LP
First Album in 18 Years!
Vinyl Edition includes 2 Bonus Tracks!
One of the finest rock bands ever to grace Creation Records’ roster in the early 1990s, Swervedriver is back with their first album in 18 years! Formed in Oxford in 1989 around core members Adam Franklin and Jim Hartridge, the band’s mix of guitar-fueled energy and forlorn melodies echoed American acts like Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth while also attracting comparisons with the so-called ‘Shoegaze’ bands.
Recorded at legendary studios Konk in London, England and Birdland in Melbourne, Australia, I Wasn't Born To Lose You boasts the song "Deep Wound," which the Swervies performed on the Jimmy Fallon Show in the States before releasing it as a limited edition single in 2014 plus the new single "Setting Sun."
This double-vinyl configuration adds two bonus tracks to the CD version: "Dub Wound" (which was the B-side of "Deep Wound") and the band’s cover of Television’s "Days" (previously the flip of "Setting Sun").
