The original limited edition classic and deluxe editions of Spirit Of Talk Talk sold out within weeks of going on sale in 2012. If you have a copy of it, look for my name in the credits. But, for the first time, is a new, expanded paperback edition of the book that Mojo called “a thing of beauty”.
As well as including all of the content of that first edition—James Marsh’s exquisite, classic and previously unseen artwork, interviews, rare photographs and a biography of the band by Chris Roberts—there are 24 pages of new content including an extensive preface from founding member Simon Brenner, and exclusive interviews with a host of people connected to the band, among them musicians, engineers and musical collaborators.
Plus, there’s a new introduction from Phill Brown, the studio engineer who worked on Spirit of Eden, Laughing Stock, and Mark Hollis, and a wealth of new, unseen photographs and memorabilia taken from Simon Brenner’s personal archive.
This new paperback edition of Spirit Of Talk Talk is available as a pre-sale now. Simon Brenner has agreed to sign the first copies so pre-order NOW to be certain of getting your copy on publication in October.
