Having been newly mastered from the original tapes, Twelve Stops And Home will be reissued as a Deluxe 3CD + DVD digibook, and a limited edition double yellow vinyl.
The digibook includes all of the B-sides and non-album tracks from the campaign, plus an assortment of demo recordings and remixes, alongside extensive sleevenotes charting the album’s incredible success in the band’s own words. This edition also boasts the documentary DVD, The Feeling On Ice, telling the early story of the band as narrated by fan Kiefer Sutherland.
Twelve Stops And Home – named after the Piccadilly Line journey from Leicester Square to Gillespie Sells’ home stop of Bounds Green – was originally released on 5 June 2006.
Despite being largely self-recorded in the garden shed of Ciaran and Kevin Jeremiah’s parents’ Sussex home, the album was a hit-the-ground-running masterpiece of fiercely infectious, life-affirming pop, pitched in the rainbow-coloured realm between Queen, the Scissor Sisters, ELO and Supertramp.
Four of the album’s big-hearted and velcro-catchy songs became bona fide hit singles (Sewn, Fill My Little World, Never Be Lonely and Love It When You Call), helping the band to become the most-played act on British radio in 2006, and earning them the Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year.
