Catatonia EPs Collected On Reissue

An album compiling two early EPs from Welsh rockers Catatonia will

give a glimpse of the rock band's early career. 1993/1994: The Crai

EPs, due Dec. 7, will include For Tinkerbell and Hooked,

originally issued in 1993 and 1994, respectively. The efforts present a

rougher precursor to the edgy pop rock of the band's 1998 breakthrough

album, International Velvet. The group's latest LP, Equally

Cursed and Blessed, has not yet been released in the U.S.
