Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition. In 1991, Curve arrived on the scene with a series of increasingly successful EPs via Dave Stewart's Anxious label. A year later they released their debut album, Doppelganger. A monster and stately record, it was their sonic manifesto. Self-produced with Flood, and mixed by emergent super engineer and unofficial sixth Curve member Alan Moulder (Ride, U2, My Bloody Valentine, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), it's ability to sandblast your nerve endings for breakfast is matched only by it's tendency to inebriate the listener with it's aromatic charm. The album features two singles, 'Fait Accompli' and 'Horror Head' both of which hit the Top 40 in 1992. Now, this edition of the album is expanded and packed with the singles and the three EPs (all remastered from the original tapes) plus four rare tracks including the Aphex Twin remix of 'Falling Free', as compiled by Dean Garcia and Toni Halliday.
