The Second Disc

Expanded and Remastered Music News

Another Handful of ZTT

with one comment

The Zang Tuum Tumb label, which gave us some of the most experimental but accessible pop from the U.K., has been going strong all year with reissuing material from 808 State to Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Here are a few of their latest vault offerings ready to go, in case you’ve missed them.

The synth-pop pioneers Propaganda will see a 25th anniversary edition of their debut LP, A Secret Wish. This two disc set includes the original album plus rare and unreleased remixes. (Thanks as always to Slicing Up Eyeballs for the track list.) Propaganda were an influence on Martin Gore of Depeche Mode, and Secret Wish track “Dr. Mabuse” was featured in the film Some Kind of Wonderful. (The accompanying video was also the first clip directed by Anton Corbijn, known as the principal photographer for Depeche Mode and U2.)

There’s also a new Art of Noise compilation slated for release from ZTT as well. It compiles all the major hits of the band as well as another disc of unreleased material from across The AoN’s lifespan.

Both sets will be out in the U.K. on July 19, and can be pre-ordered here and here. The track lists are yours, after the jump.Propaganda, A Secret Wish: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (ZTT/Salvo SALVOCD211, 2010 – original album released 1985)

  1. Influence track 4, despite being labeled “Close (to the Edit)” actually ended up being the track which had been previously released on wax as “Beat Box (Diversion 7)”. It is a hacked-up Diversion 2, whereas the US 7″ version of “Close (to the Edit)” was just an early fade of the album version.
