1 - THIS HEAT - DECEIT - (LP) 
MODERN CLASSICS


Celebrating This Heats 40th anniversary in 2016, Modern Classics Recordings will re-issue the band's catalog - 1979s This Heat, 1980s Health and Efficiency, and 1981s Deceit - with full co-operation of surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. Four decades on, the tireless efforts of This Heat's process can once again be a revelation for new audiences. With their debut album and follow-up maxi single Health and Efficiency, This Heat sowed the seeds of post-punk, avant rock, noise rock and post-rock, placing the trio - Charles Bullen, Charles Hayward and Gareth Williams - at the forefront of experimental music.However, 1981's Deceit is the one that truly deserves its reputation as a classic of the post-punk era, tying up the myriad threads of their work so far and adding accessibility and melody to the still furiously forward-thinking sound.

2 - THIS HEAT - HEALTH AND EFFICIENCY - (LP) 
MODERN CLASSICS


Celebrating This Heats 40th anniversary in 2016, Modern Classics Recordings will re-issue the band's catalog - 1979s This Heat, 1980s Health and Efficiency, and 1981s Deceit - with full co-operation of surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. Four decades on, the tireless efforts of This Heat's process can once again be a revelation for new audiences. Bridging the gap between the debut and their masterpiece, Deceit, the 1980 release found the band settling into a groove at their studio, Cold Storage.The eight-minute title track, remembers Charles Hayward, "was improvised pretty much fully-formed," and included the sound of the neighboring school's playground and the band rolling bottles around in the gallery space next to their studio. Thats where they found the maxi-single's sleeve too - Pete Cobbs blue and white image was on display in the same gallery. As Charles Hayward notes: "Everything seemed to fall into place."On the B-side, the drone for "Graphic/Varispeed" came from the song "24 Track Loop" on the first album, albeit manipulated, slowed down and sped up. "In the process, we realized that we liked the morphing of the sound from one state to another as the vari-speed combed the sound across the equalization, like a microscope. So we recorded the process itself, which is what you hear here," says Hayward. The intention was for the single to be able to be played at 33, 45 or 78 RPM - which you're welcome to do with this reissue, too.

MODERN CLASSICS


Celebrating This Heats 40th anniversary in 2016, Modern Classics Recordings will re-issue the band's catalog - 1979s This Heat, 1980s Health and Efficiency, and 1981s Deceit - with full co-operation of surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. Four decades on, the tireless efforts of This Heat's process can once again be a revelation for new audiences.Isn't it so often the case that the most innovative works of art - the ones that break the ground where others follow - are the ones that seem to reach only the ears of those who take those ideas and run with them?So it is with This Heat and their eponymous debut album frequently referred to as 'blue and yellow' for its ultra-minimal jacket. Within its 48 minute run time, the seeds of post-punk, avant rock, noise rock and post-rock can be found.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Testcard 02. Horizontal Hold 03. Not Waving 04. Water 05. Twilight Furniture 06. 24 Track Loop 07. Diet Of Worms 08. Music Like Escaping Gas 09. Rainforest 10. The Fall Of Saigon 11. Testcard
