Title: Tidal Wave of Hype
Artist: Wake
Label: LTM
UPC: 708527004807
Genre: Rock

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the fourth album by Glasgow indiepop pioneers The Wake, originally issued by Sarah Records in 1994. Recorded after the group slimmed down to a duo, Tidal Wave of Hype was produced by the band with Duncan Cameron (Teenage Fanclub, BMX Bandits) at Riverside Studios. Along with core members Caesar (guitar and vocals) and Carolyn Allen (keyboards and vocals), the sessions also featured James Moody and Matthew Drummond of Sarah labelmates The Orchids. The 2015 remaster features the original Sarah artwork as well as additional images by Matt Haynes. “Here is the music we made during and after that sudden period of transition from Factory to Sarah,” explains Caesar. “Spiky protest songs, unfettered pop satires, direct and personal, far removed from everything, travelling alone. Glasgow. Manchester. Bristol. There and back again.”
