Haircut 100 – Pelican West 40th Anniversary reissues

‚ÄúLots of people are discovering Haircut 100 now and that album and saying it‚Äôs fresh as a fantastic daisy, every time, that‚Äôs the wonder of it.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Nick Heyward (vocals and guitar), 2022

Haircut 100 and Demon/Edsel Records are delighted to announce the release of Pelican West 40, a celebration edition of Haircut 100’s platinum selling debut album available for pre-order now released on 23 February 2023. The album was originally released in February 1982, and reached No 2 in the UK album chart and No 31 in the US Billboard chart.

The group moved from being London underground darlings to chart sensations in less than six months, and within a year had disappeared into pop’s ether, leaving behind one memorable album and four Top 10 UK singles.
