Nitzer Ebb On Vinyl For The First Time

Nitzer Ebb and Mute have announced details of the first in a re-release campaign of the band’s catalogue on vinyl and CD that will cover the world outside North America. Body of Work, a compilation originally released in 2006, will be available for the first time on vinyl on March 8, as a limited edition four-piece set on red and white vinyl.

Named one of the “most influential artists in music today” by the Guardian in 2018, the band recently made a return to live performance with the original line up of Bon Harris, Douglas McCarthy, David Gooday and Simon Granger, performing to sold out shows in London and Berlin at the end of last year. Nitzer Ebb have announced several dates for 2019, in Germany, Belgium and at the Infest festival in the UK in August – with more dates to be announced.

Nitzer Ebb began in Chelmsford, Essex in 1982, caught the ear of PWL producer Phil Harding in 1985, and soon after recorded two killer tracks: 'Let Your Body Learn' and 'Warsaw Ghetto'. They came to the attention of Daniel Miller and recorded the classic proto-balearic-techno album That Total Age (Mute, 1987), featuring classic tracks ‘Murderous’, ‘Join In The Chant’ and ‘Let Your Body Learn’. The album was followed by four more towering sonic and design classics Belief, Showtime, Ebbhead and Big Hit.

Nitzer Ebb went on to sell over 100,000 records in the States alone, tour with Depeche Mode and influence pioneering DJs and producers such as Richie Hawtin, Darren Emerson, Sven Väth, Helena Hauff, Objekt, DJ Hell, Tom Stephan, Danny Tenaglia as well as bands such as Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails. They split in 1995, performing rarely after that date, and in 2010 released the album Industrial Complex.
