The Culture Bunker: Exclusive 6CD Box Set

£67.99

Release Date: 2 June, 2023

The 6CD & 7LP Culture Bunker 1978-1982 sets compile all the band’s singles and B-Sides as well as 4 discs/5 LPs of unreleased studio out-takes, a wealth of unheard live recordings and several tracks taken from ‘Zoology’, the Teardrop Explodes compilation that Cope released himself in 2004. Writer and long-time band publicist Mick Houghton has curated Culture Bunker and has gained exclusive access to Julian Cope’s archive. These early and later recordings show the evolution of one of the era's most influential bands from their inception to their finale.

Included with the 6CD product is a book containing rare memorabilia, an essay and a timeline detailing the moment the band had the world at their feet through to the band’s abandoned third album and demise in November 1982. The tracks have been re-mastered by Andy Pearce wherever possible from original tapes and cassettes.
