'The Pop Group‘s debut album, Y, is one of the definitive post-punk artifacts. For its 40th anniversary, Mute Records is reissuing Y in a deluxe edition. The vinyl has been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road & comes with a bonus 12″ of “She is Beyond Good and Evil.” There’s also a box set version that includes Alien Blood (which features rare and unreleased tracks) and Y Live.
The opening cut of Alien Blood is “Kiss the Book,” a tense, taught track that had previously only been heard via a 1978 Peel Session. This studio version was excavated from the original 2” tapes and The Pop Group have made a video for it as well, made by artist and filmmaker Daniel Kramer aka The Visceral Glitch'
