Two crucial compilations from classic '80s indie cult band Felt are getting welcome reissues: Gold Mine Trash and Bubblegum Perfume will both be out March 3 via 1972 Records.

Of the two, Gold Mine Trash is arguably the more sought-after, as it collects non-LP singles on Cherry Red, including their indie hit "Primitive Painters," which was a duet with Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser.

Bubblegum Perfume, meanwhile, collects singles and album tracks from their time on Creation Records.

Both compilations feature audio and artwork (redesigned sleeves included) "lovingly overseen" by bandleader Lawrence. Check out the artwork and tracklists below.

In other news, Lawrence's current band, Mozart Estate, will release anticipated new album, Pop-Up! Ker-Ching! And The Possibilities Of Modern Shopping, on January 27.

Felt keyboardist Martin Duffy died at the end of December.
