60FT Dolls schedule re-issue

On 6th July, 3 Loop Music will release an expanded edition of 60FT DollsThe Big 3.

60FT Dolls formed in Newport in 1992, comprising of singer and guitarist Richard Parfitt, bassist and vocalist Mike Cole and drummer Carl Bevan. The band spearheaded the 1990s Newport scene that would become known as “cool Cymru”. Their debut single ‘Happy Shopper’ was released in 1994 on local label Townhill followed by a one-off Rough Trade 45, ‘White Knuckle Ride’, after which the band signed to RCA’s Indolent label. Championed by Steve Lamacq, the band supported the likes of Oasis, Elastica and Dinosaur Jr.

This 2CD expanded edition includes the original album together with the best of their b-sides as chosen by the band. Also included is their BBC Radio 1 session for John Peel (previously unreleased).
