THE DOOR AND THE WINDOW REISSUED
Original DIY punks THE DOOR AND THE WINDOW have their 1980 second album Detailed Twang reissued by Overground next week on limited edition 12-inch vinyl.
Formed in early ’79, the band had the luxury of sharing NME Single Of The Week status with Ian Dury’s ‘(Hit Me With Your) Rhythm Stick’, while their line-up included both Grant Showbiz and Mark Perry, at that time disillusioned by the constraints and expectations of Alternative TV.
Having published a fanzine Common Knowledge promoting DIY record production, the band became widely respected and shared bills with The Pop Group, Scritti Politti, The Raincoats, Delta Five and Swell Maps.
The release – limited to 500 copies – replicates the original LP, with the addition of a full biography with rare pics.
Listen to their cover of compadres Television Personalities’ ‘Part-Time Punks’ from the album.
