Product Description

“Once overlooked, recent years have seen dancefloors from

Hull to Berlin’s Berghain shake to ‘Join In The Chant’ and

‘Murderous’ as the likes of Helena Hauff, Objekt, Perc and

Optimo’s JD Twitch have used the brutal functionality of the

Essex group’s pop to juddering effect.” – Luke Turner, The


 Nitzer Ebb and Mute present ‘Body Of Work’, a compilation

originally released in 2006, now available for the first time on

vinyl as a 4LP set pressed on coloured vinyl (two red discs /

two white) with digital download code.

 Recently 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. The band have announced several dates for 2019,

in Germany, Belgium and the Infest festival in the UK.

 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, touring with Depeche Mode and influence pioneering DJs

and producers such as Richie Hawtin, Darren Emerson, Sven

Väth, Helena Hauff, Objekt, DJ Hell, Tom Stephan and 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’.
