ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
n.b. for those who’ve enquired the Scary Thieves CD is a volume plant manufactured CD. The plant use RP because it is short run ‘Limited Edition’ only. It has absolutely no impact on the mastering, audio quality or longevity of the product. It is NOT ‘on demand’, (i.e ’bunt’ by distributor), as used by some of our competitors.
The packaging (as per our policy) is ‘Eco’. This costs Furry Records more to manufacture, but has far less environmental impact and less shipping for the customer (i.e. no jewel case). Furry Records invest in the environment by reducing plastic; Everything is shipped in cardboard mailers. Enjoy the music!

The Scary Thieves name is synonymous with ’synthesiser legend’, one of the most pioneering albums of the early eighties; CP, Youdell, and the boys struggled with cutting edge PP2 Wave, brand new Simmons technology, and a host of other ’analogue’ nightmares. They, with the assistance of Japan producer Steve Nye crafted this little pop masterpiece, which, apart from a number of ‘bootlegs’ over the years, remained un-released, until Furry Records took the bull-by-the-horns, dusted down the original EMI/Parlophone masters and put out this little baby of a CD. 16 tracks; un-released album, singles, re-mixes, in one hot Eco-package.

Scary Thieves toured with Nik Kershaw, and built up a solid teeny-bop fan base in the early eighties, then imploded, leaving the scene with a bunch of rumours, recriminations, and skulduggery bolstering their ‘legendary’ status.

The lost gem from the early 80’s, a glittering synth’ rock nugget restored from the original EMI Records master tapes, 16 tracks, full 70 mins of music; incl’ the ’lost’ album, ALL the singles, AND remixes. Heavyweights of the era, with Chris Youdell (Then Jerico, Presence) cooking up an analogue synthesiser storm, and CP (Athletico Spizz 80, Big Country) throwing equally Simmons big beats knocked into shape by the ‘clean lines’ production of Steve Nye (Japan, Penguin Café Orchestra, Clannad). Crafted by some power pop tunesmithying, Scary Thieves ‘Halloween’ is the must-have collector’s item, Limited Edition CD.
Remixes by Scott Litt (REM), JJ Jeczalik (Art of Noise), Michael Brauer (Rolling Stones, Coldplay)

Great New Wave Album
I hadn't heard of this band until a couple weeks ago.
This is a great new wave album and it's too bad it was never released due to record label politics because it's full of potential hits.
