Cabinet Of Curiosities is a brand new, nine-track compilation which kicks off with the fractured future-funk single 'Where There's A Will', described by Sager [guitarist] as "The group's best attempt to mix a message with a groove plus some real free playing. If you are really unhinged you may be able to dance to this." Next up is the unheard, original previously unreleased version of 'She Is Beyond Good And Evil', probably the band's most infamous song and more recently covered by St Vincent on the Jimmy Fallon show and throughout her Strange Mercy tour. Cabinet Of Curiosities continues with BBC John Peel session tracks 'We Are Time' and 'Words Disobey Me', and rounds up previously unreleased songs 'Abstract Heart' and 'Karen's Car', plus other alternative versions. Mark Stewart describes Cabinet Of Curiosities as being of similar status to a lost Pop Group album. The release will also be available as part of a limited CD box set (The Pop Group 'Curiosities') accompanied by memorabilia and an extensive 36pp booklet. The Pop Group was born in Bristol in 1977 out of a disenchantment with punk failing to bust out of its rock origins. With mystical fire, enraged by global injustices, the group delivered scathing political and society-indicting messages aboard a post-apocalypse roller coaster, ferociously straddling their beloved free jazz, conscious funk, heavyweight dub and audacious experimentalism. "It's one of those moments when the cogs of your mind shift and your life is going to irreversibly change forever" - Nick Cave on hearing The Pop Group for the first time.
