2 x LP reissue. Remastered.
Porcupine Tree’s 1991 debut album ‘On The Sunday Of Life’ is an album that stands up as a modern-day pop-psych classic.
With acid warped lyrics courtesy of Alan Duffy (the brains behind the late lamented Imaginary Records label) the album is a surreal delight containing gems such as “Jupiter Island” & “Linton Samuel Dawson” filled with quirky melodies, effected vocals & trippy backwards guitar work. “Nine Cats”, the undoubted masterpiece of the album, is pure Edward Lear styled psychedelia.
‘On The Sunday Of Life’ also hints at the direction the band would later take with more progressive influenced material such as the epic “Radioactive Toy”.
Porcupine Tree released their last album, ‘The Incident’, in 2009, marking another step forward in the incredible journey of the band that began as a solo studio project created by Steven Wilson in the late eighties to a multi grammy nominated act & one of the world’s most revered live bands, selling out arenas across the globe & wowing fans with their incredible performances.
