As revealed via our new release schedule yesterday, Universal Music will release the forthcoming “Re-Presents” versions of UK outfit Transvision Vamp’s two studio albums in Australia late next month.
The new repackages feature not only the original tracklist of each album, but second discs, a myriad of bonus tracks including live versions, remixes and demos.
The band’s debut album ‘Pop Art’ (pictured) hit the top 20 in Australia on its release back in 1988. It contained what eventuated as the band’s second biggest hit – the classic ‘I Want Your Love’.
The 2013 repackage of the album contains four bonus tracks on the first disc – Andy Kershaw BBC Session versions of ‘Trash City’, ‘Andy Warhol’s Dead’, ‘Sweet Thing’ and ‘Sex Kick’ – while the second disc contains 18 bonus tracks including remixes, acoustic versions and other extras. Here’s the disc two tracklist for ‘Pop Art’;
01. Vid Kid Vamp
02. Revolution Baby (Electra-Glide Mix)
03. No It U Lover
04. God Save The Royalties
05. Tell That Girl To Shup Up (Extended Mix)

The band’s second album was 1989’s ‘Velveteen’, which hit the No.2 position here in Australia and spawned the band’s biggest hit ‘Baby I Don’t Care’, which smashed into the top five down under.
The tracklisting of the “Re-Presents” version of ‘Velveteen’ is not quite as impressive as that of ‘Pop Art’ (with no bonuses on the first disc), but the second disc is again bursting with goodies… all 15 of them. Here’s what you’ll discover on the second disc of ‘Velveteen’;
