WHIPPING BOY: “Heartworm” limited 2LP. Expected 7th Jan 2022

2021 Needle Mythology Re-Issue. LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl at The Vinyl Factory in London. Gatefold sleeve with printed
inner sleeves featuring lyrics and new liner notes.

Since its release in 1995, the second album by Whipping Boy has, slowly but undeniably,
come to be regarded as one of the most extraordinary rock albums of its age. Heartworm
heralded a dramatic transformation for the Dublin quartet, who jettisoned the diaphanous
dreampop of their 1992 debut Submarine; choosing instead to honour Fearghal McKee’s
wounded confessionals with unprecedented pugnacity and a new emphasis on melody. In
the year that Britpop became a rolling news story, Heartworm slipped out under the radar –
although similarly against-the-grain contemporaneous releases include Manic Street
Preachers’ The Holy Bible and Radiohead’s The Bends. This reissue on Needle Mythology
Records has been remastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road and features an extra album
of previously rare and unreleased music and comprehensive liner notes by esteemed Irish
music journalist Colm O’ Callaghan.
