Domino Records to Reissue Manitoba Albums Under the Name Caribou


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Dan Snaith seems like a reasonable guy. After creating experimental electronic music under the name Manitoba, he was served legal notice by Dick Manitoba's private investigator thug to change names or see him in court. Although Dan thinks he could have won, he decided to take the path of least resistance and change the name of the project to Caribou.

And it helped. Not that anyone needed encouragement to listen to the music, it stands on its own. But the music press talked endlessly about the name change, Dick Manitoba didn't see a cent (hard to feel sorry for you, guy), and Caribou kept getting bigger and bigger.

And now, to go full circle, Domino Records will be releasing the first two Manitoba albums, Start Breaking My Heart and Up In Flames, under the new Caribou name. The albums will be released on June 20th. They'll come with a variety of extras, like b-sides, remixes, and videos to go along with the reissues. And Dick Manitoba will go to the penalty box, and he'll feel shame.

As for now, Dan Snaith has returned to the studio to work on the next Caribou album.
