About this release

Demon Records are delighted to announce the release of Pelican West 40, a celebration edition of Haircut One 100’s much-loved debut album, released with full cooperation of the band.

A 54-track extravaganza that celebrates the bright, burning, brief career of Haircut 100. The group moved from being London underground darlings to chart sensations in less than six months, and within a year had disappeared into pop’s ether, leaving behind one memorable album and four Top 10 UK singles.

The set features new mastering from the original tapes of their debut album Pelican West, first released in February 1982, reaching No 2 in the UK and No 31 in the US.

A disc of extended versions, B-sides and special remixes.

Junction Box – The Unfinished Tracks. Pelican West 40 includes first-ever release of the eleven tracks that the band were working on in late Summer 1982 for the follow up album to Pelican West, to be titled Blue Hat For A Blue Day. Although unfinished, the five instrumentals, one guide- and five vocal tracks enthusiastically illustrate what would have happened next. Includes the Haircut 100 version of Club Boy At Sea and Whistle Down The Wind as well as an instrumental of A Blue Hat For A Blue Day, which were all to feature on Nick Heyward’s first solo album, North Of A Miracle in 1983.

Haircut 100% Live! Hammersmith Odeon Spring 1982 – A live album that highlights the group at the summit of their powers – high speed funk, to-die for pop and sweet melodies against the backdrop of Haircutmania. No overdubs and the high-octane energy of youth.

A four CD set, with 44-page booklet with a new 10,000 word note, an oral history of the time with all six members, interviewed and assembled by the set’s curator, author and DJ Daryl Easlea. Includes memorabilia and exclusive photographs from the personal collection of the band’s Graham Jones and Les Nemes.

Mastered by Phil Kinrade at AIR Mastering.

A 38-track 4LP edition – containing a half-speed cut of Pelican West – is also available.
