Smiling At Grief – Revisited
Last month we were able to master the remaining tracks for the SAG – Revisited CD, which means that we are now able to give full details of the CD and invite pre-orders.
The full tracklisting, along with our fabulous friends who remixed and sometimes added new instrumentation and vocals, is as follows:
East Of Eden – Steven Wilson, This City – Peter Jones, The Honeymoon Is Over – Karl Groom, Creepshow – Simon Godfrey, Puppets (intro) – Mark Spencer, Puppets – Rob Reed, Three Dancers – Steven Wilson, Makes No Sense – Tim Bowness & Brian Hulse, Für Helene Part II – Dean Baker
Puppets – Steven Wilson, The Honeymoon Is Over – Andy Tillison, Creepshow – Paul Hodson, Puppets – Rob Reed (ft. Stuart Nicholson & Lee Abraham), Three Dancers – Gareth Cole, Makes No Sense – Mark Spencer, East Of Eden (extended) – Steven Wilson
Running to over 70 minutes the CD features the same NINE tracks as the LP version as well as SEVEN bonus tracks. The booklet will include all the lyrics as well as original artwork by Geoff Mann. And as with the LP only a limited number of copies of the CD are being pressed.
As Steven Wilson’s contributions kick-started the project, and gave it such impetus, we asked him about his reminiscences of the original album. He responded, as he always does, within a few hours with the following, which sums up Smiling At Grief perfectly.
“This is easily my favourite period of Twelfth Night, when the band were reaching for some kind of new wave / progressive hybrid – and successfully so, they really captured something of that moment in time, both the past and the future. Even if these were meant to be quick and dirty demo recordings it’s been great to be given the chance to elevate the sonics a little (hopefully!)“
The release date for both LP & CD is the 25th March 2022, with the CD priced at £12 plus P&P. The digital version of the album has FIVE further tracks, which you will get automatically if your order from Bandcamp. If you order the CD from our website you can download them from Bandcamp.
