Today is release day for something very close to our hearts here at Chapter Music – a deluxe picture disc vinyl reissue of A Love Affair With Nature, the 1989 second album by DIY pop icons The Cannanes.
The band also announce a Melbourne launch, Sunday afternoon November 27 at the Tote Hotel, with School Damage and more.
A Love Affair With Nature holds a special place in The Cannanes‘ canon. After a series of early lineup shuffles, the band condensed into their classic core trio – drummer David Nichols, guitarist Stephen O’Neil and heartbreaking vocalist Fran Gibson. Each contributes songs that veer between insightful and absurd, conveying a 20-something inner-city existence that feels simultaneously fleeting and universal.
Out of print and unavailable since the mid 90s, A Love Affair With Nature is the idiosyncratic Australian classic you always knew you would love, but had never been able to track down – until now! The reissue comes with new liner notes, an extensive PDF booklet and a full 13 digital bonus tracks from early singles and unreleased sessions.
