Turn On The Bright Lights: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (Remastered) (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Dec 2012
One of the best indie records of 2002 (and perhaps the decade), Interpol's debut helped usher in the great post-punk revival of the 21st century by revamping moves from Joy Division to The Chameleons to The Smiths via a propulsive rhythm section, jangly guitar and Paul Banks' stoic, sepulchral drone. This 10th-anniversary collection includes the original tracks remastered, plus B-sides and demos recorded from 1998 to 2001, and four tracks from their Peel Session in 2001. These rawer recordings really showcase the band's intricate songwriting, particularly Carlos D.'s prominent bass work.
