​MATADOR TREAT HELIUM TO REISSUE AND RARITIES COLLECTION


90s alternative rock outfit Helium is getting the reissue treatment courtesy of Matador
Records. Their only two full-lengths, 1995’s The Dirt of Luck and 1997’s The Magic City,
will get reissued, the latter being packaged with the No Guitars EP, also from 1997. In
addition to the reissues, Matador will also be releasing Ends With And, a 19 track
double LP featuring the 1994 Pirate Prude EP, plus rarities, demos and b-sides.
