Porcupine Tree – Up The Downstair – Double Vinyl, Remastered, Transmission, 2021

1993’s Up The Downstair was Porcupine Tree’s second full album and the first to feature bassist Colin Edwin and (Japan) keyboardist Richard Barbieri. Forceful and emotive, it was an album that took British psychedelic and progressive rock into the modern era. A brooding atmospheric epic, Up The Downstair delivers stunning experimental electronic, guitar-led space rock with a darkly melodic heart and includes the classics “Burning Sky,” “Up the Downstair,” “Fadeaway” and “Always Never.” Announcing that Snapper Music will be representing Porcupine Tree’s Transmission label worldwide, new vinyl reissues of the band’s extensive catalogue will roll out throughout 2021.
