Editors’ Notes

Ten years after the release of Interpol's debut album, Turn on the Bright Lights, a remastered edition with 17 bonus cuts lets fans hear it with superior sound.

The group also had a striking visual presence marked by the members' fondness for suits, which only strengthened their stately, British-influenced appeal. Nevertheless, the band remained rooted in America, where guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Greg Drudy first struck up...
