More Info:

Mansun were one of the most iconic & innovative British bands of the late 90's. Having signed to the legendary record label Parlophone (home to The Beatles, Radiohead & Sigur Ros) they released four albums - 'Attack Of The Grey Lantern' (1997), 'Six' (1998), 'Little Kix' (2000) & the compilation 'Kleptomania' following the band's split - as well as a popular & now rare series of EP's. Kscope, having acquired this impressive catalogue, are running a thorough reissue series that delves into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio & visual material, including the much-awaited 21st-anniversary remaster of their experimental Top 10 album 'Six', which jumped back into the UK charts in 2019 reaching #1 in the Vinyl chart. 'The Dead Flowers Reject', the alter-ego album to 'Six', was recorded at the same time as an alternative, more linear & marginally less jaggedly eccentric selection of songs as insurance should the label reject the other. The Mansun frontman & songwriter Paul Draper, described the album: "The Dead Flowers Reject could be thought of as the fourth Mansun album... I think the record [had it come out] would probably have been my favourite Mansun album: it's the closest to how we played live". Previously only available as a bootleg, 'The Dead Flowers Reject' received a limited-edition Record Store Day vinyl release in 2020 & also featured in the 25th Anniversary, 25 Disc, acclaimed box set 'Closed For Business'
