Possibly the most colossal boxsets to land in some time, #7489 (Collected Works 1974 - 1989) is an ample perspective into the solo work of the seminal heavily clad industrial practitioner Richard H. Kirk.
Bringing together eight CDs jam-packed with some of the most otherworldly synthesised sounds this side of Sheffield, Mute have done the world a favour by collating the very best gems from Kirk's early solo material.
Featuring newly remastered and now classic yet hard to come by albums; ‘Disposable Half Truths’, ‘Time High Fiction’, ‘Black Jesus Voice’, ‘Ugly Sprit’, the double set ‘Earlier / Later’ album and for those thirsting for more, an album of previously unreleased ‘Super Duper Soul’.
If you are unfamiliar with Kirk we strongly urge you in invest and dedicated a few weeks (or like some of us years!) to this often unsung pioneer of the hypnotic groove.
