THIS MAY WELL BE IT FOLKS, AS FAR AS LIVE PERFORMANCES GO, SO GET THE TIX WHILE THEY’RE HOT
Much-loved Melbourne band Harem Scarem are reforming to celebrate the release of their classic album Pilgrim's Progress on Aztec records in early 2008. The band were renowned for their dynamic blend of punk, blues and soul and ignited many a local stage in the 1980s. With a loyal following and upward trajectory of critical and popular acclaim they disbanded way too soon in 1987.
On the 22nd anniversary of its recording, Pilgrims Progress has been lovingly remixed and remastered to provide sonic clarity and warmth while staying completely faithful to the original recording. Available on CD for the very first time, the reissue package includes bonus live tracks, other studio recordings and a detailed 16 page booklet packed with photos.
Pilgrim's Progress will be released February 1st 2008 on Aztec records. Fans with fond memories of the band, along with those who missed out the first time, can experience the intensity and power that is Harem Scarem live when they launch the album at The Corner Saturday March 29.
