F*cked Up Are To Release A Singles Compilation

October 20, 2009 by  

Fucked Up Couple Tracks

On January 25, Matador Records are releasing a double-CD and double-LP compilation of F*cked Up’s many, many hard-to-find uncollected 7? and 12? tracks.

Entitled Couple Tracks: 2002-2009, it contains 25 songs. Designed as a sequel to their earlier compilation, Epics In Minutes (Deranged, 2004), the cover photographs riff on the Beatles red and blue albums thang.

It comes with complete illustrated discography of the contents, with extensive liner notes about each song.

Couple Tracks: Singles 2002-2009 spans an extraordinarily varied (and extraordinarily collectible) musical career that has mainly been documented on 7-inch vinyl singles released around the world on many labels in many countries.

Chronologically, it ranges from the A-side of their first single, No Pasarán, a commentary on the Spanish Civil War released on Deranged in 2002, to the fast alternate take of No Epiphany, their latest 7? on Matador from earlier this year.

They’re also back in the UK for a handful of dates…

Thursday 26th November – London Barfly
