The Shivering Man

Label: Editions Mego

Format: CD

Out of stock

The Shivering Man, originally released in 1986 on Mute, was Bruce Gilbert's second solo album. Following on from his 1984 masterpiece This Way (EMEGO 102CD), it further explores Gilbert's investigations into the grey border where abstract noise and rhythm co-exist with obscure melodies and song structures. The sound is further expanded with guest vocal appearances by Angela Conway and fellow Wire traveller Graham Lewis. This is also the first time the complete album is available domestically on CD. Previous CD issues were This Way To The Shivering Man on Mute and the Japan-only 3CD box with This Way, Shivering Man and Insiding previously released by Alfa Recordings. This 25th anniversary reissue is remastered by Russell Haswell and contains a rework by Dave Coppenhall of Angela Conway's original artwork. As a bonus, there is an Angela Conway video featuring Michael Clark, originally broadcast in 1987 on Channel 4. (
