MENSWEAR: “Hay Tiempo!” clear vinyl LP. Released 23rd October 2020

Menswe@r’s second record ¡Hay Tiempo! is the great lost album of Britpop.
• It saw the band absorbing influences from the US West Coast with a more widescreen and technicolour sonic template than heard on their Top 20 debut album Nuisance.
• Sessions started in 1997 with producer Chris Allison (Coldplay, Shack, The Beta Band, Emmanuel Jal) and ran famously over time and hugely over budget. The band worked in Van Morrison’s studio, the iconic Rockfield Studios and the River Thames houseboat studio of Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour; enlisting musicians including Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown, Van Morrison), Sean O’Hagen from The High Llamas, and The Kursaal Flyers’ Vic Collins, with string arrangements by Nick Ingham (Oasis). The final tracks were mixed by Dave Bascombe (Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears).
• Despite the scale, ambition and huge evolution in Menswe@r’s songwriting, a combination of shifting trends and the band reaching breaking point after such a rapid rise to fame meant the record was shelved, never to be released – either physically or digitally – except in Japan (where the band has always enjoyed huge popularity).
