Mansun Attack Of The Grey Lantern Paul Draper CD
A 21st Anniversary CD edition of the groundbreaking #1 debut album by Mansun containing the ageless anthem Wide Open Space.
 
A brilliant hybrid of cinematic Art Rock invention and soaring melodies, Attack Of The Grey Lantern reached #1 in the UK charts on its 1997 release.
 
CD in mediabook packaging featuring the iconic 'roses' cover art and a 16-page booklet including lyrics. The audio has been remastered from the original master tapes by Jon Astley (Led Zeppelin, The Who).

Mansun are regarded as one of the most innovative British bands of the late 1990s and released three classic albums - Attack Of The Grey Lantern (1997), Six (1998), Little Kix (2000) - a retrospective compilation Kleptomania and a popular series of EPs during its existence. The Kscope label has acquired the band's impressive catalogue and are creating a deluxe reissue series that delves into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio and visual material.
 
The band developed fervent cult following, which holds an annual UK Mansun Convention and started a petition that called for frontman Paul Draper to release his debut solo album Spooky Action in August 2017. The solo album, also released on Kscope, hit #19 in the UK album charts and led to a sold out UK solo tour and a US tour with Steven Wilson.
