Portico Quartet - Knee Deep In The North Sea
LP - re-issue including 4 new tracks
In 2007 Portico Quartet moved from busking on the South Bank in London to a recording studio and, with the remains of the money from their student grants, created their first album, Knee Deep In The North Sea (released on Babel/Vortex). This was a turning point for the band, the album attracted attention from DJs, bloggers and critics of every stripe, and was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Music Prize.
Now, re-released on Real World Records, Knee Deep In The North Sea has been remixed by John Leckie and features four new tracks.
