Vinyl love: Catherine Wheel “Ferment”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Catherine Wheel
Album Title: Ferment
Year released: 1992
Year reissued: 2017
Details: Limited edition, numbered 1096/1500, 25th anniversary, 180 gram, orange and gold vinyl

The skinny: Okay. Where do I start? How about ‘unblemished debut album by late-coming shoegazers’? How about ‘brilliant start by underrated british alt-rock band’? How about ‘a breathtaking album with a deserving 25th anniversary reissue’? Done.

Standout track: “Black metallic”
