After signing to Tony Wilson's Factory Records, the late ‘80s saw the Happy Mondaysbecome the pioneers of the Madchester sound, as they blended their love of funk, rock, psychedelia and house with the sounds of the UK's emerging rave scene. London Records present the first vinyl reissue of Squirrel And G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out), originally released in 1987. The Happy Mondaysdebut album was a perfect snapshot of a very different kind of pop culture coming from beyond the fringes. It would be an underground album but a game changer. Produced by Velvet Underground legend, John Cale, this was the accidental sound track for the endless housing estates sailing away from Manchester City center and into Salford-perfectly captured by this gang of misfits. Featuring the singles "Tart Tart" and "24 Hour Party People." 180 gram vinyl LP pressing with artwork lovingly replicated by original Manchester designers Central Station Design plus silk-screen printed PVC O-card, printed inner-sleeve and download code.
