Gomez continue on from their reformation with the announcement of the release of an upgraded 20th anniversary version of their second album Liquid Skin.Originally released in 1999, the album reached number two in the UK album charts, following up their Mercury-winning debut Bring It On.
The band produced the album themselves while visiting America, an ill-fated English stately home and at some of the finest recording studios in the world between 1998 and 1999.The album also gave them a trio of top 40 hits with ‘Bring It On’, ‘Rhythm & Blues Alibi’ and ‘We Haven’t Turned Around.’ The band have released a previously unheard track from the Liquid Skin sessions, called ‘Throwin’ Myself Away’.
There was no pause between Bring It On and Liquid Skin, with the albums released just 518 days apart. “The first album and this one merge into one in a lot of ways. A lot of the tracks were written at the same time” reckons singer/guitarist Ben Ottowell. “There’s a song called ‘Bring It On’ on Liquid Skin, which says it all really. They were made very closely together, so it seemed like part of the same process. We were constantly making records”.
