And Also The Trees is the first album released by, English, Post-punk group, And Also The Trees. It was released in February, 1984. The album was produced by The Cure’s Lol Tolhurst and portrays the band in similar musical fields of other Post-punk contemporaries like The Chameleons, The Comsat Angels, Echo & the Bunnymen, Sad Lovers and Giants and The Cure. Although their sound stands out of the rest of the aforementioned bands, as it was extremely influenced by the rural surroundings of Worcestershire (tha band’s place of origin), Poetry (on the lyrical side) and Old England. Even John Peel had described their sound as being, “too English for the English”. The album was re-issued in 1992 on the German Record Label, Normal Records.
