“They blew my f******  mind. They’re called Late of the Pier. They made one record and disappeared.” – Dave Grohl (2014).

Late of the Pier announce a special 10th anniversary edition of their cult debut album Fantasy Black Channel, produced by Erol Alkan and released in 2008 to great acclaim. This reissue is accompanied by a digital companion album of unreleased demos and outtakes from the album recording sessions.

Sam Eastgate, Andrew Faley, Ross Dawson and Sam Potter were a band of inter-dimensional musicians who landed in the late noughts, whose wild journey took them from the quiet North West Leicestershire countryside to the stages of Coachella, Tokyo and beyond. After their 2008 debut they put out singles ‘Blueberry’ and ‘Best In The Class’ in 2010, and their mutant take on pop saw them pick up fans from Dave Grohl to Mike Skinner along the way. Joseph Mount of Metronomy called them the “greatest band ever,” while Simian Mobile Disco super-producer James Ford said, “To me, the mid noughties seemed to be about trying to define a new kind of pop music by blurring boundaries and painting in bright colours. The colours that Late of the Pier used were the brightest of all.”
