Mansun Closed For Business Paul Draper Kscope boxset
Closed For Business - the ultimate Mansun collection - reveals the full scope of the band's prodigious output. 
 
This mammoth 24CD/1DVD set collects Mansun's three original studio albums, plus the posthumous Kleptomania, dozens of overlooked gems that featured on the band's EPs, BBC radio sessions, 4 discs of unissued demos and studio out-takes, and the complete audio of 10 concerts. The DVD contains the Brixton ’98 Concert Film.
 
Paul Draper has cleaned out his personal archives to provide the raw material for CFB’s phenomenal collection of Mansun memorabilia, notes, lyrics and previously unheard recordings. 
 
Closed For Business does full justice to the vision of a band whose almost reckless disregard for the rules of the music industry reaped magnificent rewards.
