Alabama 3 Rock Dancefloors, Release Retrospective, Inspire No Clever Headline

Do you enjoy looking back to the past? Do you enjoy nostalgia*? How about the late 1990s? If you answered yes to any or all of these things, then perhaps you will be excited about One Little Indian's upcoming release of an Alabama 3 retrospective (or A3, as they are called in the U.S., due to the absolute chaos that would ensue if they were confused with the pop country artistes behind "God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You"). Entitled Hits & Exit Wounds, the album is expected for a late summer release, and will include tracks from Exile on Coldharbour Lane, Power in the Blood, Outlaw, and La Peste, along with the previously unreleased tracks requisite for any retrospective -- oh, and "Woke Up This Morning," that song from the opening credits of The Sopranos.

Alabama 3's characteristic blend of hell-and-brimstone gospel, blues, and country, along with that old UK dancefloor standby, house music, made fans out of dudes like Stephen King and Irvine Welsh, not to mention tons of sweaty ravers. In support of Hits & Exit Wounds, Alabama 3 will be playing select U.S. cities and more U.K. festivals than you can shake a stick at.

*No, not that old time-y magazine where Florida seniors write in about the good old days of sockhops and nuclear families. Although that magazine is pretty kickin'.
