Limited 180gm clear vinyl LP pressing. Features a detailed recreation of the artwork and sleeve. Menswe@r's second record Hay Tiempo! Is the great lost album of Britpop. Sessions started in 1997 with producer Chris Allison (Coldplay, Shack, The Beta Band, Emmanuel Jal) and ran famously over time and hugely over budget. The band worked in Van Morrison's studio, the iconic Rockfield Studios and the River Thames houseboat studio of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour; enlisting musicians including Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown, Van Morrison), Sean O'Hagen from The High Llamas, and The Kursaal Flyers' Vic Collins, with string arrangements by Nick Ingham (Oasis). Despite the scale, ambition and huge evolution in Menswe@r's songwriting, a combination of shifting trends and the band reaching breaking point after such a rapid rise to fame meant the record was shelved, never to be released - either physically or digitally - except in the Japan (where the band has always enjoyed huge popularity).
