16 Horsepower - „All Access“ - Out Now!

posted at 11/08/2019

16 Horsepower were one of the most unique and inspirational bands in the history of alternative rock. Comprising of Jean-Yves Tolà (ex-Passion Fodder/Lilium) on drums, Pascal Humbert (Passion Fodder/Lilium/Détroit) on bass and the charismatic front man David Eugene Edwards (guitars, banjo, bandoneon), they recorded two highly acclaimed studio albums for A&M in the nineties.The band moved on to Glitterhouse Records in 2000 to release their undisputed rock-masterpiece „Secret South“, now with Steve Taylor on electric guitar as a fourth member. Their subsequent tour in 2001 was a triumph, and found its way onto CD with the most impressive double album „Live, March 2001“. The Guardian raved about their London show: „Tonight, 16 Horsepower are the best band in the world“. And anyone who witnessed a 16 Horsepower concert will agree.

Three years after the release of „Secret South“ the band – now comprising of the core trio again - recorded their darkest, most folky piece of music, „Folklore“, which is often described as the most intense work of their career. Sadly enough this album became the swan song of one of the greatest bands of all time.

We at Glitterhouse Records had the tremendous pleasure to be their partners during this period – which is widely considered their most exciting and creative of their career. We are extremely proud to present these three classic albums now in the limited edition box set „All Access“, all carefully remastered for vinyl. „Secret South“ and „Folklore“ both have been out of print for a long time (and sell for outrageous amounts of money on discogs these days…) and for the first time ever, „Live March 2001“ is seeing the light of day on vinyl. Needless to say the pressings come in high quality 180 gram heavyweight virgin vinyl.

Rounded with reprints of the original tour posters from 2001 and 2003, download codes for all three albums and reworked sleeves, „All Access“ is a must for fans of 16 Horsepower and a great starting point for everybody who missed them the first time around.
