COMPETITION NOW CLOSED!
On the 25th March 2013 Transvision Vamp's first two highly successful album releases from the late 1980's, Pop Art and Velveteen will be re-released as awesome 2-CD sets, each featuring a bonus disc of B-sides and rarities.
Pop Art, originally released in October 1988 reaching No. 4 in the UK charts, where it spent 32 weeks, was Transvision Vamps debut album and is celebrating its 25th anniversary. This expanded edition, through all its mixes, BBC sessions and B-sides demonstrates how hard the group worked and how much intelligence went into their 15 minutes of fame. It was a bold start for a group that were destined for big things and had the chutzpah to put their money where their mouth was.
Velveteen was released in June 1989. It was big, bold, brash, a bit daft, funny and exhilarating, all the things that rocknroll is supposed to be. With its hatful of influences and a load of swagger, Velveteen is the absolute definitive article for the group: 1989 was the groups high-water mark. Singles were stripped off it and it cruised to the UK No. 1 album slot.
With the albums featuring their top singles including the classics I Want Your Love, Baby, I Dont Care and today, with all the bonuses, session material and b-sides, these re-releases will provide a vibrant flashback to when Transvision Vamp, the British rock-pop act were there at the cutting edge, with all the exuberance, passion, anger and naïveté that pop breakthrough acts possess.
Congratulations to our Winner:
