*** Official reissue of “The Great Indoors”, the acclaimed masterpiece of English Psychedelic, originally released in 1987 on the fabled Bam-Caruso label. Includes an extra CD with demos and rarities.

*** Originally released on the same week as the first ever reissue of Sgt. Pepper’s on CD, The Guardian review read: “The best release this week is not the reissue of Sgt Pepper’s but the debut album by Nick Haeffner.”

Originally in the John Peel favourite weird art-rock outfit THE TEA SET - Nick quickly progressed to playing numerous sessions with many up-and-coming groups - while releasing some of the most thoughtful and awe-inspiring records of the 80s. Nick was signed to Phil Smee’s legendary collectors label BAM-CARUSO, where he worked on many projects, often under an assumed name. Phil has said of Nick’s versatility, ‘he could play anything, he’s a genius.’

The Great Indoors is an eclectic collection of superb songs and music brimming over with ideas and invention. Musician and producer Richard Norris says of The Great Indoors, it’s “a great, lost, quintessentially English project. Echoes of Nick Drake, Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Pink Floyd and Robert Fripp loom large, but Haeffner's originality eclipses his folk, psych- and art-rock influences. There's a deftness, a lightness of touch here that is delightful. 'Steel Grey', 'Don't Be Late', and the title track are classic pastoral meditations. Although recorded in the late eighties, the album hasn't dated and is ripe for re-evaluation.’

Along with the original ten track album, a bonus CD of additional music is included. Rare 12” singles only sides, early demos for The Great Indoors, demos for the intended follow-up album Dali Parton, as well as previously unreleased new recordings. A booklet with notes and pictures rounds off the package.

A new album by Nick Haeffner is also out now. Entitled A New Life Awaits You, it’s a haunting new collection of songs and instrumentals. The album is a worthy successor to The Great Indoors, showcasing Nick’s talents as a writer, guitarist and producer, drawing on his encyclopaedic knowledge of folk, rock, pop and experimental music.
