4CD Set Comprising Curve's Entire Anxious Recordings Output. Featuring The Classic Albums 'Dopplegänger' And 'Cuckoo' Plus Singles, B- Sides, Remixes And Live Recordings. Produced With Contributions From Dean Garcia And Toni Halliday. Sleevenotes From Lois Wilson. Formed by two relative veterans of the musical landscape in London in 1990, Curve blazed a trail with a fresh new sound during the first few years of that decade, fusing heavy electronics with layered guitars and sweetly dark vocals. The British music press was instantly enamoured, and the band went on to score a succession of critically acclaimed underground hits through a series of classic EPs and two futuristic albums. Released on Dave Stewart's (Eurythmics) Anxious imprint, these records chart the course of a band who burned brightly but briefly in their original incarnation, taking their cues from the scene around them and creating a new sound which many would mimic (most notably, Butch Vig's Garbage). But this is the original flavour. The real deal. Original and daring. Homespun yet worldly. Featuring the classic early EPs and those two seminal long players, 'Unreadable Communication' demands a re-examination of a band who set the standards of their own time and place, and who continue to be referenced and appreciated by shoegazers, industrialists and ethereal pop kids across the world.
