Nitzer Ebb was formed in Chelmsford, Essex, in 1982 by vocalist Douglas McCarthy, drummer Bon Harris, and keyboard player David Gooday, the group began experimenting with synthesizers and drum pads, fusing the bandmembers’ affinity for dark goth and punk rock with the emerging technology. After several popular shows around London during 1984, PWL producer Phil Harding began working with Nitzer Ebb and recorded their first single, “Isn’t It Funny How Your Body Works,” which appeared on the band’s Power of Voice Communications label in 1985. Three more singles followed during 1985-1986 before Nitzer Ebb signed to Mute in late 1986.
After an extended trip to New York City in 1986 Phil Harding returned to the UK and entered PWL Studios to remix and edit Warsaw Ghetto into two new radical versions both are included on this Limited Edition 12″ along with the radio mix of So Bright So Strong.
