Re-issue of the UK Top 40 debut album from The Horrors. Featuring all 11 tracks from the initial pressing this also includes a bonus 7" with the tracks 'Death At The Chapel' and for the first time on vinyl 'The Horrors Theme'. It also comes housed in a Gatefold Sleeve.

The Horrors are one of the most complete, intellectualized, though-provoking bands out there. This is music for youth. It is unifying in its chaos, startling in its simplicity - all those things that music fans have been bemoaning as dead and gone. And now, its up to you, dear music fans, to allow the Horrors to take you on their journey back in time - to a time when music evoked fury, evoked interest, evoked debate. A time when you spent all your pennies at record fairs trying to find the most twisted explosions of sound ever pressed to vinyl.

Review

Strange House is 12 songs of snarling, violent, anarchic garage pop that makes 90 percent of the new bands in the world suddenly irrelevant. --VICE (10/10)

Heroic in their divisiveness, the Horrors reject the ideology of virtually every British guitar group ... Connoisseurs of punk's darkest corners (Damned, early Misfits) and post-punk's experimental extremes (Pop Group - see instro 'Gil Sleeping') will have their socks knocked off, totally. --MOJO (4 out of 5 stars)

Their debut album proves that they have the substance to back up their Dickinsian undertaker image... Transforms a surf and psych-rock homage into something fresh and virile. --THE OBSERVER (4 out of 5 stars)
