The Coral are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their eponymous debut album. The record was described by NME as being the funniest and most refreshing British debut in years and it was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and a Brit Award.  

The story of that remarkable record is now being told for the first time in a stunning, boxed book that has been signed by the band. 

The book is limited to 1,500 signed and numbered copies which are available for pre-order now: https://www.awaywithmedia.com/buy-books/the-making-of-the-debut-album-by-the-coral 

Copies have been signed by James Skelly, Nick Power, Paul Duffy and Ian Skelly and they will be delivered in July. The book will come with a live recording of the band’s recent Spring tour. 

Eight intimate shows also go on sale on Friday that will feature James Skelly and Nick Power exploring the making of that record and playing a selection of acoustic songs from it. There will be conversation, audience questions and acoustic songs in the 90-minute show.  

The Coral’s eponymous debut album remains a totemic release. Sonically unique, wilfully leftfield and thrillingly eclectic, The Coral combined psychedelia with dub, disco groove with pop and ragtime with Egyptian reggae on a remarkable debut that has proved to be timeless. Twenty years on, that records sounds as fresh and remarkable as it did when it was released on 29th July 2002.  

An exclusive CD featuring acoustic songs played on this tour will be available to ticket-buyers after the show at a cost of £5, via post. Details of how to claim will be available at the show.
