Post punk pioneers; The Raincoats have just announced the reissue of their 1981 sophomore LP, Odyshape (Rough Trade). The album will be a remastered version, and appear on 180 gram vinyl & CD, along with liner notes from Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon. Although originally released via Rough Trade, the band will be handling this one via their own WeThRee label.
