Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years, by both fans and their musical peers alike, The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews, Scotland, in 1996. Innovative and singular, their unique musical and aesthetic approach to everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries.
Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation.
After acquiring the Beta Band’s catalogue last year, Because Music will reissue their releases, starting on September 14th with a deluxe vinyl edition gathering in a slipcase the EPs ‘Champion Versions’, ‘The Patty Patty Sound’ and ‘Los Amigos Del Beta Bandidos’ with remastered tracks and coloured vinyl, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 1998 compilation.

NUMBERED SLIPCASE featuring ‘Champion Versions’ EP (red vinyl 12” in single
sleeve), ‘The Patty Patty Sound’ EP (double yellow 12” vinyl ) and ‘Los Amigos Del
Beta Bandidos’ EP (blue 12” vinyl in single sleeve).
CD included in clear plastic sleeve with flap (includes all tracks)

Anyone who pre-orders the deluxe vinyl edition of the Beta Band Three EPs will get a reproduction copy of The Flower Press, the short-lived fan club fanzine designed and put together by the band which was very much in keeping with their aesthetic at the time.
