Co-founded in 1978 by Chris Cutler, London-based ReR Megacorp remains a musician-led independent label after almost 40 years. Blithely disregarding market wisdom, it continues to release titles across a wide spectrum of genres.
ReR is home to cult bands This Heat, Henry Cow, Faust, Art Bears, The Necks...
In December 2001, Sufjan Stevens set out to create a Christmas gift for his friends and family. The result was a 7-song recording that he called, Noel Vol. 1. Over each of the next few Christmas seasons, Sufjan crafted new EPs to add to the collection. As he was recording the Peace : Volume V (in the summer of 2006), he considered how best to 'officially' release this music in to the world. He said he was, “determined to present the EPs in their original form: flaws, blemishes, mistakes and all. A compilation would have been a cumbersome compromise. A “Greatest Hits” would have been heartbreaking (How to choose?).”
In addition to the music, he wanted to add a "lavish display of ornamentation" to coincide with the spirit of excess and overindulgence that is the hallmark of Christmas. Enclosed in the box you will find essays, a short story, song chords & lyrics, photos, a family portrait, and wishes for a Happy Christmas...and unlike most holiday gifts, with their jacked-up prices, this collection is graciously cheap!
