So, this is up for pre-order on Cherry Red: https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/pwei-def-comms-86-18-pop-will-eat-itself-communications-1986-2018-4cd-deluxe-boxset/

I am completely lost as to all of this only comes to 19.99...

Career-spanning 4CD collection, compiled with founder member and vocalist Graham Crabb.

Includes all the hits, classic album tracks, remixes and rarities.

75 tracks, including four previously UNRELEASED recordings.

Album-by-album sleeve-notes by guitarist Adam Mole.

New artwork by The Designers Republic

Contains material from all eight of the band’s albums, plus the ‘lost’ 1996 album, as well as unheard alternate versions and a recently recorded demo.

‘Poppiecock’, ‘Sweet Sweet Pie’, ‘Love Missile F1-11’, ‘Beaver Patrol’, ‘Def Con One’, ‘Can You Dig It?’, ‘Wise Up! Sucker’, ‘Dance Of The Mad’, ‘Cicciolina’, ‘X, Y and Zee’, ‘92°F’, ‘Karmadrome’, ‘Bulletproof!’, ‘Get The Girl! Kill The Baddies!’, ‘Ich Bin Ein Auslander’, ‘RSVP’, ‘Everythings Cool?’, ‘Axe Of Men 2010’, ‘Chaos And Mayhem’, ‘Disguise’, ‘Watch The Bitch Blow’, ‘Reclaim The Game’ and more…

Emerging from Stourbridge in the mid-1980s, Pop Will Eat Itself quickly progressed from two minute, punk-inspired indie hits to sample-heavy hip hop, house, techno and industrial rock. Along the way, the band scored countless hit singles and albums, toured the world and became a much-loved mainstay of the UK music scene during the late 1980s and 1990s. Having reached the end of the line in 1996, the band reformed in 2011, so far releasing two new albums and continuing to record and perform live to an enthusiastic international fanbase, including recent trips to the USA and Australia.
“Communications” brings together material from across PWEI’s entire career for the first time, compiled with vocalist Graham Crabb and including unreleased material supplied exclusively for this release.

Stylish, modern and complete, this is the definitive PWEI experience for both long established fans, the new and the curious.

PWEI continue to perform around the UK and beyond, and they appeared at the Camden Rocks festival in June and will be at Camp Bestival in late July 2018.

Looks lovely, great price and its very impressive they've managed to compile it with stuff from the different labels. Hopefully there will be some digital download available for the previously unreleased tracks, though, because I don't really need all this stuff again :lol:

Exactly what I'm thinking. The new song is listed as a demo, so maybe we'll here a "final version" at some point? As far as this compilation, I think the only way I can justify buying it is if the packaging is really cool.

Great price. Nice to have a 'new' release, hope the supporting tee(s?) become available online too. Would love to see posters and pic discs of these, surely there'd be enough demand for a small run of both?

Pre ordered a copy of this. For £20 it's a bargain even though I have most of the tracks. Be nice to have a limited vinyl run though...Hint hint!

Five pound postage is a bit of a piss take, mind.

So what do people think of the previously unreleased stuff? I like Eyes Wide Open, some of the vocals seem a bit iffy but hey it's a demo and isn't finished so I'm looking forward to hearing the final version. I like the 'go! go! go! go!" bits on the Fatman session version, and the Oldskool Cool remix sounds great.

I didn't get any notice either, just turned up at home, so I'm sure you'll get yours soon enough.
