More Info:

Six CD set exploring Cranes' output on the Dedicated label, 1989-1997. Includes albums, b-sides, remixes, rarities and live recordings. Formed in 1986 by siblings Alison and Jim Shaw, Cranes remain one of the most distinctive bands of the late 1980s and 1990s, their ever-mutating sound defying categorization and existing outside of the zeitgeist. Their recorded output during their initial ten-year incarnation is collected together here for the first time, from the raw 1989 mini album 'Self-Non-Self' (originally released on Bite Back!) through to the sophisticated 1997 epic 'Population Four'. Curated and overseen by singer Alison Shaw on behalf of the band, and resplendent in artwork by 4AD legend Chris Bigg (with detailed liner notes and discographic information), 'Collected Works Vol 1' serves as timely reminder of Cranes' magnificence as they evolved from stark, noisy soundscapes to bolder, more elaborate instrumentation and arrangements. With hints of ethereal rock, dream pop, shoegaze, industrial and neo- classical, theirs was a sound truly like no other.
