Dead Famous People – Lost Persons Area – Limited Edition, EP, Reissue, Fire Records, 2022
Back on vinyl for the 1st time in 36 years & for the first time outside of New Zealand.
The ‘long lost’ release from New Zealand’s cult-favourites Dead Famous People is back on vinyl for the first time in 36 years. Dons Savage’s stellar songwriting, unique voice and extracurricular work with The Chills and Saint Etienne didn’t result in fame, though the 2020 comeback album, ‘Harry’, showed her magic undimmed. To celebrate, Fire Records is reissuing Dead Famous People’s debut EP for the first time outside New Zealand. The release features brand new liner notes written by enthusiasts Bob Stanley (Saint Etienne), Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand) and Martin Phillipps (The Chills).
