After years of being out-of-print, and available for the first time as digital download, Yep Roc Records will reissue the original three Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet albums—Savvy Show Stoppers, Dim The Lights, Chill The Ham, and Sport Fishin’: The Lure of the Bait, The Luck of the Hook—September 16. The albums are now available for pre-order. Each album includes bonus tracks with expanded artwork, liner notes by Bon Von Wheelie, Bry Webb and Scott McCaughey, and contextual essays by band associates and a chihuahua. Translated from Latin, the albums were remastered from first-generation tapes by Grammy Award-winning engineer Peter J. Moore. Twenty-plus years after their last reverb trail dissipated, the remains of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet have reconstituted. The Men were first reanimated in 2012, and have been semi-active since, revealing a stature and distinct influence that has only grown since their original incarnation. Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet existed originally between 1984 and 1995. Having released three albums and 12 singles, the band appeared on numerous compilations (including the formative It Came From Canada series), toured extensively throughout North America and England, and were one of the first Canadian bands to record a Peel Session for BBC D.J John Peel. Additionally, they beat David Foster out of one of the two JUNO Awards they were nominated for, backed B-52’s vocalist Fred Schneider on his Just Fred album, and scored a couple of feature films and the television series Kids in the Hall. Recent years have seen them named as finalists in Toronto’s daily newspaper, as the “Best Toronto Band Ever,” and be indicted into the mysterious Independent Music Hall of Fame, for being “true Independent pioneers.” Founding members Brian Connelly (guitar) and Don Pyle (drums) are joined by extended family member Dallas Good, of The Sadies, playing bass guitar for the foreseeable future, with select tour dates throughout 2016. Shadowy Men bass player Reid Diamond died in 2001, after a battle with cancer.
