What started as an unforgettable live experience, and one of the band’s first performances after 16 years, now turns into an extraordinary live album, film & book.
The Comeback Special is released on Friday 29th October 2021 and will be available in multiple audio as well as video formats.
The highlight of this multi-format release is an exquisitely designed 136-page art book, which tells the whole story behind The Comeback Special with hundreds of behind-the-scenes photos, film stills, contributions and stories, as well as 6 discs including exclusive audio content, plus director Tim Pope’s film of the concert on both Blu-ray and DVD.
The Art Book features:
· Previously unseen artwork by Andy Dog, lyrics to all songs on the set list, a foreword by Pete Paphides, contributions by band members and collaborators
· 'Conversations by Candlelight', a Radio Cinéola broadcast over a bottle of Jura whiskey with Matt Johnson and Tim Pope + acoustic snippets of selected songs
· 'Book Narration', a Radio Cinéola broadcast with Matt Johnson and Jackson Ewald Johnson offering a guided tour of the book
· 'Morning Becomes Eclectic' (interview + 6 acoustic performances at KCRW in LA during the tour: 'The Beat(en) Generation', 'Heartland', 'This Is The Day, 'Slow Emotion Replay', 'Armageddon Days', 'Lonely Planet')
