Hours before their sold out concert at the internationally infamous Techno club Berghain, our senior editor Thomas Thyssen interviewed Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy of pioneering Industrial EBM act Nitzer Ebb.
During the interview, Harris and McCarthy went in depth about the process of reuniting the original lineup of Nitzer Ebb Product which was formed in Chelmsford, Essex in 1982. with now returning members, David Gooday and Simon Granger.
Harris and McCarthy also go on to discuss how Gooday and Granger brought some of the elements from their project Stark into the mix, which instigated a new spark of creativity in interpreting the body of work that comprises NEP’s impressive back catalog of songs—which heavily influenced electronic dance music to the point that would ultimately be a necessity for the band to perform live at the world’s most famous techno club.
Watch the interview with Bon Harris and Douglas McCarthy below:
In addition to the career spanning 10 LP box covering releases between 1982-2010 through Pylon Records, (which you can order here), 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.
