Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Boo Radleys celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1993 genre-hopping masterpiece Giant Steps. NME's 1993 Album Of The Year, named in the Top 20 of Pitchfork's The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time and lauded as one of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Only the second of their five albums to be released on the legendary Creation Records, at a time when label mates including Slowdive, Teenage Fanclub and Ride were also casting long shadows across the indie landscape, pre-the Oasis hurricane making landfall at the label, Giant Steps broke into the canon of great, experimental rock albums soon after it's release. It's first single, Lazarus, issued as a standalone release in November 1992. For the 2023 reissue, Lazarus' 12" version appears on the all-formats track listing for the first time. Recorded at London's Protocol Studios, where Carr and Brown took on self-production duties with support from engineer, Andy Wilkinson, The Boo Radleys set about responding to their shared sense of dissatisfaction with their 1992 album, Everything's Alright Forever. Free to do as they please, they set about making a record of complete artistic freedom, bringing in reggae (Upon 9th And Fairchild), dance (Rodney King) and irresistible, warped indie pop (Barney And Me) influences into the studio and, without limitation, weaved them into the satisfyingly complex fabric of Giant Steps. Snapshot incidentals, intermissions and between-radio-station static intro/outros added to the sense of unrestrained exploration.
