To show you I've been there... Soft Cell celebrated in a luxury, limited edition photo book - the ultimate piece of memorabilia. Featuring over 150 images from the archives of some of the best-known music photographers, many previously unseen, all fully restored from original negatives, this book will be the ultimate photographic record spanning the whole of Soft Cell's electric career.
Fully authorised by Marc and Dave and featuring their comments and backstories from new interviews with acclaimed music journalist Mark Paytress, this high quality 21 x 28 cm hardback is published as a limited edition of 1300 books; each copy accompanied by a free bonus specially recorded black vinyl 7 inch single, featuring 4 previously unreleased tracks. The book will also feature a full discography, handwritten lyrics, and other surprises.
Each copy of the book will be accompanied by an exclusive free bonus 7-inch vinyl 'Magick Mutants' EP containing four fully re-recorded tracks from the band's early 80s archive. The tracks are 'Science Fiction Stories', 'Bleak Is My Favourite Cliché', 'The Girl With The Patent Leather Face' and a special cover of the seminal 1979 Fad Gadget single 'Back To Nature'. The EP is also dedicated to Fad Gadget, aka Frank Tovey, who studied with Marc and Dave at Leeds Polytechnic during their time there. As with the highly-sought-after 'Mutant Moments' EP from 1980, the artwork has been created by Dave Ball, and the tracks will also be made available as full-length downloads (plus edits) with purchase of the book.
This book will not be reprinted, nor will the vinyl single be available independently, so please place your order promptly to avoid disappointment. In the meantime, you can preview some of the content at http://www.softcell.co.uk/book.
