· In many people’s opinion, The Delgados’ magnum
opus ‘The Great Eastern’ remains one of Chemikal
Underground’s most significant releases.
· The Delgados’ Mercury Music Prize-nominated album is now available on vinyl for the first time in almost 15
· Heavyweight 180gsm vinyl limited to 500 copies. 320kbps download code included.
· ‘The Great Eastern’ was The Delgados third studio
album, following ‘Domestiques’ in 1996 and ‘Peloton’
· The album was recorded by band member Paul Savage and engineer Tony Doogan in Scotland. The
album was mixed by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, Mogwai) at Tarbox Road Studios.
· The end result was a resounding success: shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, The Delgados also received a Spirit Of Scotland music award , a Nordoff-Robbins Best Newcomer award and a Jockrock Tartan Cleft award for ‘The Great Eastern’.
· The album itself, named after the homeless shelter a
mile or so from Chemikal Underground’s offices, was a triumphant realisation of The Delgados’ potential as
songwriters and as a live act.
