Published Jun 21, 2016Last year, Glaswegian twee lords Belle and Sebastian returned with their surprisingly solid latest album Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. Rather than move ahead with another new LP, the indie pop mainstays have opted to dig into their past with a box set.
The release is called The Jeepster Singles Collection, and that should be more than enough to describe the contents contained. If you haven't figured it out yet, the box will collect all seven singles that the band released on Jeepster, each of which has been remastered and pressed to an 180-gram 12-inch record.
The EPs included in the box are Dog on Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane, 3..6..9 Second of Light, This Is Just a Modern Rock Song, Legal Man (featuring a new, extended mix of "Judy Is a Dick Slap"), Jonathan David and I'm Waking Up to Us.
In addition to the records, the box will include a DVD that features "The Complete Jeepster Promo Video Collection," as well as exclusive, never-before-seen content.
There's also a 20-page booklet, a photo print of the band and, perhaps most notably, replica versions of some Belle and Sebastian fanzines from the 1990s.
The Jeepster Singles Collection is due on October 21 and can be pre-ordered here. The first 100 copies will feature the band's autographs on the photo prints within.
