LAND OF GIANTS: Cannibal Dolls / Seven Men Vinyl

from Artoffact Records

In the late spring of 1982 an electro-pop band from Canada calling themselves Land of Giants released an independent 12" single called Cannibal Dolls / Seven Men. Land of Giants featured the talents of Henryck Jesiak, John Tucker, Anya Varda and Marc Wonnacott. The single went on to receive respectable radio play on college radio (where it reached #1) and on alternative radio stations in Canada and abroad. John Peel even played it on his BBC show!

Although interest in Land of Giants included the likes of producers Rusty Egan (Visage) and Midge Ure (Ultravox), the band never released any other material. Several tracks were recorded, however, and these included an early rap fusion, Fire with Fire, that had John Tucker rapping alongside Anya's vocals, as well as Kenny McLean of Platinum Blond fame on backing vocals. These tracks eventually made it onto a compilation CD, self-released by the band in 2008.

After its initial success as a dance floor hit, the original single garnered a small but extremely loyal following around the world, and little did the band know they would be considered pioneers of the "Cold Wave / Minimal Electronic" scene more than 30 years later. Prices for the 12" have reached almost $300 on eBay and demand continues to grow amongst collectors.

Realizing the pioneering importance of Land of Giants, Toronto-based label Artoffact Records will re-issue Cannibal Dolls / Seven Men on vinyl. The reissue is remastered and will also include 8 tracks that have never appeared on vinyl. A white vinyl edition limited to 100 copies will also be available.

Released in a replica sleeve.
