Rough Trade Records are excited to announce the reissue of Ultramarine’s pioneering electronic album Every Man And Woman Is A Star. Acclaimed and respected at the time of its original release (initially on Brainiak Records in 1991 and then in expanded form in 1992 on Rough Trade), it now stands as a classic of its genre, an electronica record made before the term was coined.
Every Man And Woman Is A Star will be available on Double Vinyl format with an additional Bonus 12” Vinyl of the 1992 John Peel Session and Digital Download. Ultramarine are: Ian Cooper and Paul Hammond.
Music writer Simon Reynolds neatly described the album in his book Energy Flash as: “Perhaps the first and best stab at that seeming contradiction-in-terms, pastoral techno... all sun-ripened, meandering lassitude and undulant dub-sway tempos... like acid-house suffused with the folky-jazzy ambience of the Canterbury scene.”
This reissue includes additional John Peel Session tracks available for the first time and recorded in 1992, featuring the tracks; “Saratoga”, “Nova Scotia”, “Honey” and “Pansy”.
