Life’s A Riot With Spy Vs Spy – Special 30th. Anniversary Edition
30 years and a mushroom biryani later, we find ourselves older and fatter…but wiser.
Life is still a riot with Spy vs Spy…just ask Edward Snowden. So to mark the anniversary of the release of Billy’s seminal debut album we have fired up the remastering guru, Tim Young and let him loose on the original LP, adding a certain nuance to Oliver Hitch’s straight stereo recording. But wait, that’s not all, in June this year Billy recorded the album in a live set at the Union Chapel in that London village, singing through his beard and into your ears. A juxtaposition and no mistake.
So, enjoy the bookends* to a 30 year career of experience and exploration and treat yourself to a mushroom biryani while you do.
*no he’s not actually retiring, it’s a metaphor…not a good one but what do you want?
