Originally released in 1999 and only on CD, never released as an LP. Includes sleeve notes written by Green Gartside and David Gamson.
11 years after the release of previous album Provision, Scritti Politti erupted back into life with 1999’s Anomie and Bonhomie. Recalibrated, re-evaluated, re-imagined and, eventually, rewarded. Anomie and Bonhomieis the heady results of this artistic rebirth. Illuminated by the band’s stylish pure pop spotlight, collaborations with Mos Def, Lee Majors and Wendy Melvoin give the record a neon-lit, nocturnal shimmer. Hip hop flourishes sit side-by-side with heart-hitting balladry, as truly touching melodies match moments of uncompromising musical grit with their emotional impact.
