NITZER EBB
1982-2010
THE BOX SET

This career spanning retrospective box marks the first time that all five of the band’s albums for Geffen/Mute have been collected in one complete box set. The box set features expanded double black vinyl of each album (10 vinyl LPs in all), 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 1982-2010: The Box Set will be available on October 5th via Pylon Records.

Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris return to reunite Nitzer Ebb after taking a hiatus in 2010. The band has announced that they’ll be performing next summer at Amphi Festival, Cologne, Germany on July 20 2019. McCarthy and Harris will be joined onstage by original founding NEP members David Gooday and Simon Granger. This will mark the first time these four founding members have performed live together since 1987. Additional dates featuring this expanded lineup will be announced in the coming months.

GLIDE MAGAZINE PREMIERES IAN FISHER’S NEW TITLE TRACK “IDLE HANDS”

Click here to check out Ian Fisher’s new track “Idle Hands” via Glide Magazine

SONG PREMIERE: IAN FISHER OFFERS UNIQUE TAKE ON SOUL MUSIC WITH “IDLE HANDS”

Today Glide is excited to offer an early taste of the album with an exclusive premiere of its title track. Slow and soulful, the song feels simultaneously retro and fresh in a style that brings to mind the slower work of Dan Auerbach. Fisher’s love of blue-eyed soul and his attention to the detail that goes into arrangements is on full display. He adds a unique twist with the addition of pedal steel guitar, bringing just enough twang into the mix. If “Idle Hands” is any indication of what the rest of the album sounds like, then we are in for a treat.

Reflecting on the inspiration behind the song, Fisher has this to say:

“When I wrote this song I felt left behind by love, but the more I sing it, the more I feel that being left behind to our own devices and fearing the future is the general zeitgeist of the contemporary western world. [Click here to read more]

 

BLACK PUMAS’ “BLACK MOON RISING” LANDS ON NPR’S FAVE SONGS OF 2018!

NPR Music’s 35 Favorite Songs Of 2018 (So Far): Black Pumas’ “Black Moon Rising”

Grammy-winning producer and Brownout guitarist Adrian Quesada has been the man behind the curtain for so many projects that it has become a bit of a running joke. The Austin musician is relentlessly driven, and has found lots of success my digging into deep psychedelic grooves. Yet none of his endeavors has leapt out of the gate quite like Black Pumas. Led by newfound vocalist Eric Burton’s commanding soul, Quesada and crew have become Austin’s hottest new band based on one dubbed-up single. — Jeff McCord, KUTX
