Mcluskyism Will Only Bring You Happiness

As we mourn the one-year anniversary of the breakup of the rock & roll machine known as Mclusky, their long-awaited best of CD has finally been given a name as well as a release date. This farewell from one of the most under-rated UK bands, titled Mcluskyism, will come as a single CD and as a limited edition three-disc set. The single disc has, as you would expect, all their singles. The three-disc fancy-shmancy set is a true retrospective on the band, featuring singles, b-sides, rarities and live tracks. Both versions will be released on February 27 in the UK and on March 21 in North America via Too Pure/Begggars. While this compilation doesn’t fill the place in our hearts left empty by the implosion of Mclusky, it may help the healing process finally begin.
