"A COMPREHENSIVE COLLECTION OF THE PRE-ATTACK OF THE GREY LANTERN ERA SINGLES & B-SIDES, RELEASED ON LP FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR RECORD STORE DAY 2023. In 1995, Mansun signed to the legendary record label Parlophone (home to The Beatles & Radiohead) & headed to the studio to record their seminal #1 album ‘Attack Of The Grey Lantern’. The debut album topped the charts & remains one of the classic brit pop albums of the 90’s. Formed in Chester in 1994, the band wrote & released a collection of songs before the album sessions, released on CD/7-inch vinyl leading up to their debut album. Now, for the first time, these pre-Grey Lantern tracks has been compiled on this essential album – ‘Before The Grey Lantern’. Included in the compilation is ‘Take It Easy Chicken’ (1995 Original Self Released Version), the band’s first ever single & a song Mansun famously closed sets with, right up until they disbanded in 2003. Elsewhere on the record, stand-out moments include tracks from the bands One, Two, Three, Four & Five EP’s & B-sides from the ‘Stripper Vicar’ & ‘Wide Open Space’ singles. "
