    Chrome

    Long before groups like Oasis and Blur provoked cross-Atlantic media hype, Catherine Wheel were evolving the Britpop style that typifies the genre's distinction. With the release of Chrome in 1993, they advanced their dreamy pop to the rock sound.

    It's not like Catherine Wheel established their sound with Chrome, either. Ferment was considered their supposed magnum opus, with the extremely successful lead-single Black Metallic. Chrome is more appropriately described as a perfection of their established sound, as the band's metallic shoegaze is refined in terms of both intensity and melodic-content. Every element that made Ferment so memorable and enjoyable is amplified in this release. Rob Dickenson sings with perfect tenor appeal on tracks like Kill Rhythm and Crank, highlighting the personal temperaments which shape the album.

    There are quite a few album covers out there that flawlessly encapsulate the atmosphere and/or mood of the music contained. Chrome has one of those covers. It's design came from the collective Hipgnosis, who gained international prestige for the cover of Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd.

    Sit back, listen and experience this album. You might feel emotions you didn't even know you had.

    Ferment

    25th Year Anniversary Edition Of The Debut Album

    Including Black Metallic, Salt And I Want To Touch You

    The heavily sought after debut album Ferment by Catherine Wheel is finally pressed on vinyl again!

    In 2016, Pitchfork ranked the album at number 23 in their list of The 50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time, with Ben Cardew of the website commenting that a good half of the songs on Ferment, their debut, are enduring shoegaze-disco classics, while Black Metallic, in its full seven-minute glory, makes a strong claim to being the genre's 'Stairway to Heaven'.

    Ferment is the band's most unique record; it serves as a fitting lens through which to view the group's work throughout the 1990s. The album displays Catherine Wheel's early attempts to meld drone-drenched shoegaze with heavy rock.

    After all these years, it is the record's twin epics, Black Metallic and Salt, that immediately illustrate why Catherine Wheel was so meaningful to so many of the bands that came after them.

    Black Metallic, perhaps the group's most famous single, is absolutely otherworldly.
