Super Furry Animals head off on a tour to celebrate 20 years since the release of Fuzzy Logic by playing their first two albums in full.
The tour sees them playing Fuzzy Logic and Radiator back to back. Gruff stated “We were a young family and found ourselves parents to two, boisterous albums, suddenly born between 1996 and 1997. It was our doing; we took full responsibility and endured the sleepless nights. The time goes so fast and they are all grown up now, old enough to be taken on the road again and let them stay up late.”

To coincide with the tour the band will release a multi-format reissue of their 1996 debut, Fuzzy Logic on BMG. All of the early Super Furries albums now sell for £200 plus on second-hand vinyl so this is a welcome release.
Twenty years on, high definition, heavyweight vinyl, CD and digital releases are re-mastered from the original tape reels, including top 20 hits, A bonus disc titled ‘Lost On The Bypass Road’ emerges from the Furries archive to accompany the release.
Enlisting Furries official archivist, Kliph Scurlock and mastering expert, Donal Whelan, the recordings have been meticulously ‘sonically rediscovered’.
