2023 Repress – Silver coloured vinyl LP
Kid Koala’s cult classic album, ‘Some Of My Best Friends Are DJs’, is given a new lease of life on the 20th anniversary of release.
It’s the Kid Koala you know and love, a turntablised soundtrack of more antics of the cranky and mysterious characters from Kid Koala’s comic book land of Nufonia.
Silver 140g vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve. Includes digital download code.
‘Some Of My Best Friends Are DJs’ comes complete with the original 50-page comic book from the first pressing.
On original release, the album was supported by a cabaret-style tour known as The Short Attention Span Theatre, which featured three DJs on eight turntables, a slide show and a bingo game, among other quirky surprises.
For fans of Coldcut, Bonobo, Amon Tobin, Mr. Scruff, The Herbaliser, DJ Food.
