"Now remastered and with 7 previously unreleased bonus tracks. The mythology that has grown around The La's has made them one of the most enigmatic bands of the last few decades. The story began in a bleak mid-'80s Liverpool, with a chance meeting between two unemployed musicians, Lee Mavers and Mike Badger. Over the next two years they co-wrote material which appears here on Breakloose 1984-1986. Influenced by the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Captain Beefheart and described as 'surreal rock 'n' roll', the results are raw & spirited with classic song writing to the fore, defining a unique and creative time in the band's history and pointing the way to future success." Includes 20-page booklet.
