More information: The 2018 Remix edition of the Cosmograf classic, When Age Has Done Its Duty, a concept album centering on themes of the ageing process, nostalgic memories, and the regret we feel for the past.
Originally launched in 2011 on F2 Records, to critical acclaim, the concept album has been out of print for some time.
Armstrong says: ďItís considered by many to be a seminal work in the Cosmograf catalogue, so rather than just re- issuing it I thought it would be better to completely remix and master it and address some of the issues that were less than perfect on the original recording. Many of the original guitar, bass and vocal parts have been re-recorded, new string arrangements added, and a more dynamic low volume level master produced. Iím really pleased with how itís now sounding.Ē
