Remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios!
Formed in 1977 as The Farriss Brothers (to later be changed to INXS), the group consisted of Andrew Farriss, Jon Farriss, Tim Farriss, Kirk Pengilly, Garry Gary Beers, and vocalist Michael Hutchence. Since then, the group has released 12 albums including "Kick" in 1987. The sixth studio album from the group would prove to be the band's most successful studio and was fronted by Michael Hutchence.
"You can hear this album like never before," says Giles Martin of the new 30th-anniversary Edition of Kick. "You can hear Michael [Hutchence] so close to you, you can hear his breath. You feel like youre in the studio with the band. You have a record thats 30 years old, but its been taken in a completely new direction and you can listen to it in a completely new way and it becomes new again. Great music and great songs, they dont get old."
For vinyl enthusiasts, there is a half-speed remaster of the classic 1987 album cut at 45rpm over two heavyweight, 180g LPs for supreme fidelity, by Abbey Road Studios' half-speed Mastering pioneer Miles Showell, who says: "Having owned this album since 1987 and even cut the UK 7" lacquers for 'Need You Tonight', I was thrilled to be asked to remaster it as a double-45 half-speed mastered LP."
INXS keyboardist Andrew Farriss says that the new edition boasts "classic, fabulous pop songs that jump out of the speakers, now more than ever before", adding, "The latest INXS vinyl cuts are an outstanding achievement, especially the Kick album - I was truly amazed to hear INXS recordings sounding so incredibly fresh, clear and kick-ass, like vinyl on steroids."
