Industrial dance progenitors and electronic body music purveyors Nitzer Ebb get their due with a comprehensive box set of their music. The long-running British trio started in 1982 and made waves in the U.S. with their “Godhead” video, which aired on MTV’s revered alternative music show 120 Minutes.
Nitzer Ebb 1982-2010: The Box Set features 10 vinyl LPs comprised of newly remastered versions of all five of their Geffen and Mute-released albums, plus 5 albums of bonus tracks and rarities. The box set will arrive on October 5th via Pylon Records.
The limited edition color vinyl box set will also include their self-released debut album, Basic Pain Procedure, available exclusively through Pylon Records’ website store.
Further press release details below:
The box set features expanded double black vinyl of each album, with several bonus tracks and hard to find 12” mixes - all carefully curated and remastered by Pylon Records. The original artwork has also been expanded into gatefold sleeves, with embossing and spot UV finish. It also contains a large size booklet with liner notes by the band's co-founders Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris, along with unseen photos, flyers, and artwork, detailing their entire career in chronological order from Essex to Los Angeles. These albums have been out-of-print since the early '90s and have never been reissued prior to this.
The actual two-piece box is made of hard board stock, wrapped with leather paper and the UV design is hot foiled stamped. The box also has accommodated extra space inside for their first self-released album, Basic Pain Procedure, from 1983 and their last release, Industrial Complex, from 2010, to complete the collection by the fans, as these titles have been in print in recent years.
There will be a limited colored vinyl edition of the box, which will also include a re-press of the band's debut album, Basic Pain Procedure, available only from the Pylon Records website for a short period of time. The Industrial Complex vinyl has been in print in the last several years on colored vinyl, and easily attainable on many online and fine record stores around the world.
Nitzer Ebb has been on hiatus since 2010, but band founders Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris have returned and confirmed several European tour dates, and they will be announcing more shows in the near future. McCarthy and Harris will be joined onstage by co-founder David Gooday and go-to graphic designer Simon Granger who is behind Nitzer Ebb’s provocative album graphics and other artwork.
