Factory Benelux presents an expanded CD edition of sophomore album Super Highways by The Other Two, the electronic pop duo comprising Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert of New Order.

The Other Two came into being in 1990, spurred by Morris and Gilbert’s work on television soundtracks, as well as a temporary lull in New Order activity during which Electronic (Bernard Sumner) and Revenge (Peter Hook) also released sidebar albums. Recorded for Factory Records, debut O2 album The Other Two & You was finally released in 1993, produced by the duo with synthpop maestro Stephen Hague.

Super Highways, the second O2 album, followed in 1999. Produced by Stephen and Gillian themselves with Tim Oliver, vocals are shared by Gillian and Melanie Williams, best known for her guest vocal on hit single Ain’t No Use by Sub Sub. The title track was also issued as a single, augmented with remixes by Andy Votel and Cevin Fisher.“Morris and Gilbert stick squarely within the boundaries of breezily euphoric Eurodisco and stately electro ballads. For variety, there are occasional flirtations with semi-junglist scuttlebeats and a spooked ambient interlude called The Grave” (Uncut)

The 3 bonus tracks on the remastered CD include the Fisher and Votel mixes, as well as a clubby K-Klass remix of Tasty Fish from the debut album. Cover art by Peter Saville and Howard Wakefield. Liner notes by James Nice. Released under licence from Warner Music UK Ltd.
