Berlin label bring back classic album with surgical precision

Berlin-based Tresor Records has announced plans to reissue three of Surgeon’s late-90s albums over the coming months.

Basictonalvocabulary, Balance and Force+Form were released by Surgeon, the pseudonym of the Birmingham-born Anthony Child, between 1997 and 1999 and will now be rereleased as 2LP prints throughout 2015. A special three CD boxset will collect the albums together for a June 8 release.

Each release includes the original Remake 12” that came with the album, alternate versions from Surgeon and contributions from Mick Harris, the former Napalm Death drummer turned ambient musician. The albums have also been re-mastered by Matt Colton.
