Alan McGee (On 17 Stars – The Guardian )

A pitch-perfect exercise in the type of literary pop music that I felt had gone amiss since Factory stopped releasing records. “

We are delighted to bring you a limited vinyl edition of a classic Salford/Manchester album.

You Can Listen HERE ! :

 

The Montgolfier Brothers, Mark Tranmer (GNAC) & Roger Quigley (Swim Two Birds) initially released Seventeen Stars on the Salford-based Vespertine label in 1999. General critical acclaim & appreciation from pop dynamo Alan McGee led to a 2000 re-release on his nascent post-Creation Poptones imprint.

Alan McGee said (On Poptones in his autobiography: "Creation Stories: Riots, Raves & Running A Label” ) So we ended up pressing records as usual .our first record was Seventeen Stars by the Montgolfier Brothers, a baroque, cinematic classic that almost no-one has ever heard.”

Since that moment, Seventeen Stars has gathered universal plaudits & affection along with occasional live performances from the group. 

Long deleted on vinyl, & to mark the 20th anniversary of the original release, CTR have remastered this brilliant work for vinyl. Revisiting the original Vespertine CD release artwork & presenting this unique music to a new audience of appreciative and discerning vinyl listeners.

Beautiful, memorable, fragile ... An album that proves the longevity of great songwriting, tunes & textures that stay with you.

“ An exquisitely beautiful elegy to a lifetime of misspent opportunities. “ (Exclaim – USA 2000)

For lovers of Felt, The Durutti Column, Jacques Brel, Blue Nile & François de Roubaix
