of the Infant Jesus
Mirror - the 2nd album by Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus, originally released in 1991, is possibly RAIJ’s most diverse and eclectic collection. In addition to their signature blend of ethereal beauty and stark brutalism, the album burrows deep into the European psyche with multiple musical, literary and spiritual allusions. The myriad samples and field recordings on the album include dialogue from classic European experimental cinema, medieval Spanish poets, and the dying strains of Albanian and East German propaganda broadcasts.
Mirror is now released on vinyl for the first time.
"Kindly Leave the Stage"
The 3rd - and final - Distractions album, "Kindly Leave The Stage", will be released less than 5 years after the critically-acclaimed "The End of the Pier".

Founding members guitarist and songwriter Steve Perrin and vocalist Mike Finney are joined by Nick Halliwell (The Granite Shore), Arash Torabi (The June Brides) & Ian Henderson (The Puddle).
Available as standard LP or as a deluxe edition with bonus limited 10" mini-album.
The Everlasting Yeah
The Granite Shore
The second album from The Granite Shore was intended as an album about anxiety... then the UK's national self-harm episode of the EU referendum happened, adding to the sense of anxiety and impending doom. What better way to process events than write a concept album of glorious pop songs inspired by Abba?
