Crepuscule presents a CD
version of It's Kinda
Funny, an anthology
collection of classic
singles and radio session
tracks by iconic Scottish
post-punk guitar group Josef K, originally issued between 1979 and 1982.
As well as the three legendary 45s on Postcard Records (Radio Drill Time, It's
Kinda Funny and Chance Meeting), the album also includes both singles
released on Les Disques du Crepuscule (Sorry For Laughing, Missionary) as
well as the original Absolute version of Chance Meeting from 1979. All the
original b-side tracks are also included, as well as the band's John Peel radio
session transmitted in June 1981.
“Josef K were The Sound of Young Scotland, together with Orange Juice,
whose guitars were also radiant and brittle, whose rhythms were also
scrubbed and blunt, whose vocals were also proud and serious, but who
sounded like another group entirely” (Paul Morley)
“Josef K was about the heroic Outsider suavely surfing across the fraught
surface of their albino funk fracas. Haig sounds high on anxiety, finding an
odd, giddy euphoria in doubt.” (Simon Reynolds)
Cover art by Jean-Francois Octave. The booklet features detailed liner notes
and archive images by Simon Clegg. A vinyl version of this anthology is also
available as TWI 022.
