And here is much, much more official info about the Deluxe re-release of one of the most strikingly original and ambitious albums of the year:

'Queen of the Wave’ in all its Super-Duper, Epically-Deluxe Definitive Glory with 6 New Tracks, Mixes, Videos, Outtakes, Instrumentals, Artwork & Eccentric Extras....

In January 2012 Pepe Deluxé - aka Finland’s James Spectrum and Sweden’s Paul Malmström - released ‘Queen of the Wave’, an album aptly described by Pop Matters as “the most impressive album ever painstakingly assembled across space and time” -10/10. It was an exhilarating, adventurous, and boldly experimental album in which Pepe Deluxé mixed up beats, psychedelia, funk and pop, like a pair of mad scientists, into a high-octane sonic explosion of a record. Inspired by the themes of Atlantis, Venus, sci-fi futurism and reincarnation - all written of in the mystical 19th Century novel ‘A Dweller On Two Planets’ - ‘Queen of the Wave’ could be described as the sound of a deliciously bizarre pop-opera.

‘Queen of the Wave’ featured: the Great Stalacpipe Organ (the world’s biggest instrument, built into one of the Caverns of Luray, Virginia); an eclectic and talented pool of 63 collaborators including Samuli Kosminen of Múm, master metal drummer Kai Hahto, ArcAttack and their lethal Tesla coil synthesizer, the Czech Film Orchestra and the female voice actress of Shrek and Moomins; Edwardian and Victorian equipment and instruments, including a modified Edison ghost hunting machine (all painstakingly restored and played to sound like snippets from ultra rare records); and let us not forget the accompanying album companions with their comic-esque, b-movie scrapbook aesthetic and content including genuine linear notes from the Princess of Sweden to Professor of Astronomy (and part-time bad ass biker) Esko Valtaoja.

The ‘Queen of the Wave’ Deluxé Edition includes the Original Album in full, plus 6 Brand New Tracks and interludes, legendary Yol Gorro’s easy-listening version of the album, a DVD brimming with Videos and Artwork and some very useful Extras.

CD1: The original ‘Queen of the Wave’ album

CD2: 6 Brand New Tracks, Interludes, New Hesperus Garden Mix, Outtakes + Bonus Tracks by Yol Gorro (the Sonic Sorcerer featured on the ‘A Night & A Day‘ video) – Over 40 minutes of new music! DVD: Packed with videos including...Album Trailer, A Night And A Day, Go Supersonic, In The Cave, The Storm (Guitar Cobra Version), Salami Fever, Girl!, Pussy Cat Rock, Go For Blue, The Mischief of Cloud Six, plus instrumentals, 10 minutes of session samples, drum breaks, artwork and wallpapers. Extras: A lavishly illustrated and exhaustively researched hard cover 64 page book encasing the discs brimming with encyclopedic information on the opto-sonical world of ‘Queen of the Wave‘. In the words of Pepe Deluxe’s Paul Malmström: “It looks so crazy. It looks as the album sounds. Too much of everything, in a good way.”

Pepe Deluxé will be playing their debut UK live show at Scala, London on November 12 with Husky Rescue.
