Title: Original Albums Boxset
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Four CD set. Originally signed to Cherry Red in 1981, Eyeless in Gaza moved very quickly through four albums of skewed free-pop explorations to become the intriguing, uncomfortable cousin of the brash new wave sound finding it's way into the mainstream at the time. Picture a place where scratchy guitars, synthesizers, primitive rhythms, found sounds, technical experimentation and neo-noise come together to provide a bed for the poetic, exploratory lyrics of Martyn Bates. Oblique, anxious, difficult in places and beautifully detached, their sound captured perfectly the beauty to be found if one cared to rummage through the rubble of a Britain in the midst of industrial collapse. Produced with the approval and involvement of the band, and spread across four CDs presented in a hard clamshell case, this set captures Eyeless In Gaza's first four albums, along with a band compiled set of non-album essentials and oddities and a sleeve note by Martyn Bates.
