In 1980, Tuxedomoon created a sensation with their masterpiece debut album Half-Mute, which immediately established them as one of the leading avant-garde pop bands. 36 years later, in the spring of 2016, Tuxedomoon's original members, Steven Brown, and Bruce Geduldig, will get together to revisit Half-Mute and perform it live on a series of exclusive shows around Europe. On this occasion, we will be reissuing the album on CD. It will be remastered, repackaged, and coupled with a tribute album, for which 13 artists have specially created covers of all songs from Half-Mute and from the album's associated singles.
The contributors include Foetus/Jim Thirlwell, Aksak Maboul, Simon Fisher Turner, DopplAr (feat. 2 members from Amatorski) etc.. with appearances by the 3 makers of Half-Mute: S. Brown, P. Principle and B. Reininger.
