Listen to Super Furry Animals stream of unheard, 1995 demo of classic, expletive-laden single ‘The Man Don’t Give A F***’.

The madness and the majesty of Super Furry Animals’ chaotic emergence as an indefinable, thrillingly exciting addition to the innovative margins of mainstream rock and roll is irresistibly encapsulated in the 20th anniversary reissue of their 1996 debut album, Fuzzy Logic on Fri 4 November 2016 on BMG, with the addition of no fewer than 35 additional tracks. From the two-decade deep well of their adventurous catalogue come B-sides, a legendary festival performance and demo versions from low-key 1995 recording sessions on the CD release, revealing the genesis and winding roads taken by many of their early hits.

The significance of the reissue and the forensic remastering process was heightened as the band learned of the tapes’ near destruction in a storage fire sometime between the original, legendary Rockfield Studio sessions in late 1995 and their retrieval earlier this year. Official Furries Archivist and Co-Compiler, Kliph Scurlock dusted off the smoke-tinged reels and led a fingertip search for each and every track, working with Mastering Engineer, Donal Whelan to unpeel layers of primitive, mid-nineties digitisation, correct subtly corrupt edits and expose the warmth and ingenuity of the original, analogue recordings in superior, high resolution.
