Finally, Compsey Tribunal's debut album is remastered and available for your listening pleasure.

Recorded back in 2002, this statement of intent showcases the band's ability to shift through genres, from alternative rock to bass-led grooves; from mutated reggae to achingly melodic atmospherics.

Employing Motown-like production values, Compsey had a distinctive, almost lo-fi sound, without ever resorting to primitivism.

About Compsey Tribual

Formed in 2000 from the ashes of several local bands, Compsey was initially sparked in a venting of frustration - the members were not in bands at the time, which was found to be tiresome. A jam was organised. The three clicked and much music was made.

Material ranged from almost ambient to dubby to searing alt rock.

Ade Bordicott
Wretched-Z - keys, slide guitar, beats
Ade Bordicott - bass, occasional guitar
MK-1 - guitar, occasional bass, vocals
