View Detail


Taking their name from the cult classic horror film, 90s underground punk icons, Leatherface, were stalwarts of the UK scene, arriving at a time many thought that brand of brash songwriting had had its day. Gaining attention throughout the UK and with popularity in the US on the horizon with ‘Mush’, ‘Minx’ was released in 1993. Arriving at the peak of their powers it would also be on the brink of their first hiatus. Channelling Stubbs’ love for Joy Division, the new album had a more emotional direction, in contrast to the group’s earlier recordings. Recorded in Stubbs’ home studio, ‘Minx’ came with the addition of their much loved fourth bassist, former Snuff band member Andy Crichton.

The album has since been considered a lost classic by the band’s rabid followers. Fully re-mastered, this collection includes extensive liner notes featuring interviews with Frankie, as scribed by The Big Takeover’s Jack Rabid, leaving no stone unturned. The release includes remastered bonus material via download, including a unique cover of ‘Can't Help Falling In Love’ from a limited edition promo 7”, released initially as a limited bonus with the album, along with tracks from the ‘Do the right thing EP’ and ‘Compact and Bijou EP’. The Fire Archive reissues important records from the past, prepared with loving care for existing fans and new audiences. Each release receives special attention to audio and packaging as we strive to provide the definitive version for decades to come.
