Les Disques du Crepuscule
Release date: 6/2/2023
CD in Digipack.
Crepuscule presents It’s Kinda Funny, an anthology collection of classic singles and radio session tracks by iconic Scottish post-punk guitar group Josef K, originally issued between 1979 and 1982.
As well as the three legendary 45s on Postcard Records (Radio Drill Time, It’s Kinda Funny and Chance Meeting), the album also includes both singles released on Les Disques du Crepuscule (Sorry For Laughing, Missionary) as well as the original Absolute version of Chance Meeting from 1979. All the original b-side tracks are also included, as well as the band’s John Peel radio session transmitted in June 1981.
“Josef K were The Sound of Young Scotland, together with Orange Juice, whose guitars were also radiant and brittle, whose rhythms were also scrubbed and blunt, whose vocals were also proud and serious, but who sounded like another group entirely” (Paul Morley)
“Josef K was about the heroic Outsider suavely surfing across the fraught surface of their albino funk fracas. Haig sounds high on anxiety, finding an odd, giddy euphoria in doubt.” (Simon Reynolds)
Cover art by Jean-Francois Octave. The 8 page booklet features detailed liner notes and archive images by Simon Clegg. A vinyl version of this anthology is also available as TWI 022.
