Sono pronte per Cherry Red Records le ristampe in cd dei tre album di Rip Rig and Panic usciti nei primissimi anni ottanta per la Virgin: God, I Am Cold e Attitude, qui accompagnati da una piccola messe di brani aggiuntivi inediti o apparsi a suo tempo su singoli ed extended play.

Named after a Rahsaan Roland Kirk album, Rip Rig + Panic was one of the most exciting bands of the 1980s, fusing funk, jazz, punk and world music influences into a unique whole. With lead singer Neneh Cherry, the band recorded three albums for Virgin Records which have never been legitimately available on CD. All three LPs are now remastered from the original master tapes with a raft of bonus tracks taken from non-album singles. Original band members Gareth Sager (ex-Pop Group) and Mark Springer are involved with these releases, with the blessing of Neneh Cherry and (current PiL) drummer Bruce Smith.
