The last year has seen Disco Inferno’s status upgraded from post-rock footnote to crucial actor.

Their 1992-5 run of EPs, combining winsome indie melodies with shoegaze textures and, crucially, a raft of esoteric samples, had long been regarded as buried treasure. Few indie acts at the time were quite so ingenious in their fusion of conventional and digital musical technologies, and their five short-form releases from the period articulated the Essex band’s unique worldview far better than either D.I Go Pop (1994) or Technicolour (1996). Last Autumn, One Little Indian brought the records to much wider attention with a comprehensive CD/digital re-release. After some vociferous public demand, that project has now been extended to vinyl.

On August 27, One Little Indian will release The 5 EPs in limited edition gatefold double vinyl. The new edition will arrive with a special booklet featuring a contemporary interview with the band. The 5 EPs arrives as part of the label’s ‘Totem Series’ of reissues, also responsible for the likes of A.R. Kane and The Woodentops. Be swift: only 500 copies will be pressed.
