Nitzer Ebb cut a dynamic swathe through the industrial music and Balaeric beat scenes of the 1980s and 90s. They were electro-punks before the genre even existed, at a time when The Prodigy were not even a gleam in fellow Essex boy Liam Howlett's eye.
Nitzer Ebb went on to sell over 100,000 records in the States alone, tour with Depeche Mode and have influenced pioneering DJs and producers such as Richie Hawtin, Darren Emerson, Sven Vaeth, DJ Hell, Tom Stephan, Danny Tenaglia as well as rock-gods Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails. They split in 1995 but will reform for a very special one off tour.
Opening will be the excellent MOTOR, who've been remixing for Nitzer Ebb, Depeche Mode, Throbbing Gristle, and others. Their own album came out this year and also kicks.
