Double CD Version. Formed in in 1976 by Billy McKenzie and Alan Rankine, The Associates made lavish, genre- bending cabaret pop. The original release of 'Fourth Drawer Down' gathered The Associates' inventive, genre-defying singles released by Situation 2 on one album. The group's story is filled with wonderful anecdotes (chocolate guitars on Top Of The Pops, whippets with their own hotel room) but it's their wildly-inventive music capped by Billy's stunning vocals, that ensures their place in pop music history.  This new CD edition expands the original single album to a 2CD collection with previously unreleased tracks, remixes, alternative versions and demos and a 28 page booklet featuring lyrics, new liner notes, previously unpublished photos and rare memorabilia.
