Reissued for the first time since 2008 this first ever repress of the much sought after Field Music offshoot The Week That Was celebrates 15 years since its release. Reissued on an exclusive clear vinyl the album has also been remastered by David Brewis of Field Music.

The Week That Was, a one off concept album with a fractured, murder mystery subtext from Peter Brewis of Field Music was released by Memphis Industries in 2008. Inspired by the novels of Paul Auster and written after a period of self imposed retreat from the glow of screens, whether televisual, handset or monitor, The Week That Was was the first of Field Music’s extra curricular releases and features some of the Brewis brothers’ finest works, including the singles The Airport Line, Scratch the Surface and the beautiful Come Home. It’s a record that added to the brothers’ burgeoning reputation as some of the UK’s finest writers and producers of music. Mojo made it album of the month and it received great reviews from Pitchfork, Uncut and the Guardian. Such was the acclaim for the record that Peter put a band together and toured the UK, USA and Europe. But it was only ever intended to be a one off and, come the end of 2008, The Week That Was was no more with the vinyl deleted and no prospect of the songs ever being played live again.
