Following the announcement earlier this year of Pylon Records’ 10 LP box set, the trailblazing EBM act known and beloved as Nitzer Ebb has unearthed a long lost music video of the band’s 1985 single “So Bright So Strong,” which made its premiere on September 11 via Revolver Magazine. Shot by the band’s original manager […]
Nitzer Ebb has premiered the never-before-seen video for their 1985 single “So Bright So Strong.” The video was originally filmed in either 1983 or 1984 by their original manager Chris Piper, the bands first manager. The video (which is not so good condition) features Bon Harris, Douglas McCarthy, and then drummer David Gooday. “So bright, So Strong” was shot in a barn just outside of Chelmsford, UK. The audio time sync was done on 2 VHS machines, manually, which is not easy at all to manage. Out later in October, but already available for pre-ordering right here, is the massive Nitzer Ebb vinyl boxset “1982-2010” holding 10 LPs. It’s the first time that all five of the band’s albums for Geffen/Mute have been collected in one complete box set. Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris return to reunite Nitzer Ebb after taking a hiatus in 2010. The band has confirmed a handful of European tour dates already, and will be announcing more in the near future. 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. Here’s the […]
Irmin Schmidt (Can) has announced “5 Klavierstücke”, an album of five piano pieces recorded last year. “5 Klavierstücke” is out on Mute in conjunction with Spoon Records on November 16. The album coincides with events centered around his works occurring later this year including the Braunschweig International Film Festival and the Volksbühne in Berlin. Irmin Schmidt explains, “The tracks are spontaneous meditations, only played once and recorded simultaneously – no edits or corrections. They are formed from an emotional memory in which Schubert, Cage, Japan (Gagaku) and Can are equally present.” “5 Klavierstücke”, was recorded and produced by Gareth Jones in the South of France on Irmin Schmidt’s two grand pianos, a Pleyel piano and a 100-year-old Steinway. All ambient sounds were recorded on site – around Schmidt’s studio – and there are no other instruments or electronics of any kind. This is Irmin Schmidt’s first solo release since “Electro Violet” – a collection of his entire solo work – in 2015.
