Indie go-to brass boffin TERRY EDWARDS and his 90s band THE SCAPEGOATS are to have their classic debut album issued on vinyl for the first time.

A founder member of 2Tone-signed punk-funkers THE HIGSONS, Edwards has worked with numerous groups and artists over the past forty years, including Nick Cave, Siouxsie Sioux, PJ Harvey, Madness, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Blockheads, Tom Waits, Alternative TV, Gallon Drunk and many more...

Edwards joined forces in The Scapegoats with bassist Jem Moore (Serious Drinking), drummer Ian White (Gallon Drunk) and trumpeter/guitarist Ian R. Watson (Higsons, Slab), to release their debut album My Wife Doesn't Understand Me to considerable acclaim in 1995.

Originally only available on CD, the album is being re-released through Edwards' own Sartorial Records for Record Store Day on 23 April as a 45 rpm double-vinyl album, with a free download card for the full album plus four bonus tracks.

My Wife Doesn't Understand Me is also available on CD and download (minus bonus tracks) here.
