“With their 1993 debut album, New Wave, The Auteurs established themselves as one of England's best guitar bands of the early '90s”

Fronted by Luke Haines, The Auteurs arrived on the cusp of shifting musical scenes.  Madchester was dead, Britpop was in gestation.

Originally released in February 1993 on Hut Records, New Wave was their debut album by The Auteurs. Produced by Phil Vinall and Haines, the album featured the singles Showgirl and How I Could Be Wrong.  The album was well received on release, perceived as being part of a nascent Brit-Pop scene, and was nominated in the second Mercury Music Prize in 1993 (won by Suede) and was in Q magazine’s Top 10 Albums of the 1993.

This re-issue, featuring 34 tracks across 2CDs compiled by Haines, includes key b-sides, acoustic tracks, the band’s BBC Radio 1 session from 1993 and 6 previously unreleased 4-track demos straight from Haines’s archive.

The 2CD set comes in lavish packaging and includes brand new sleevenotes by Luke Haines.
