Video Game Burlesque with Members of Nitzer Ebb


Jason Payne and Bon Harris if Nitzer Ebb turned classic video game themes into electronica lounge songs.

Opening the night was a performance from Nitzer Ebb members Bon Harris and Jason Payne. With Harris in a sweater vest, Payne in a propeller beanie and both in taped-up, thick frame glasses, the EBM stalwarts played a set of reconstructed video game music. Samples from Donkey Kong and other beloved games were twisted into beat-heavy jams fit for a night at the industrial club as the duo moved in a stiff, robotic fashion that resembled the Tri-Lambs homecoming prize winning routine.

The new album - state of work


As far as the NE release goes, the band are still moving forward. Obviously the financial situation has slowed things down in many regards. The album has been complete for some time, including title, artwork, everything is ready to go basically. NEP want to make sure that we release it in the best
possible situation and they are close to finalizing that.

If the band don’t find a satisfactory solution externally, they’ll self release on ebb's own label, but again, that takes time, (and money), to set up properly.

Nitzer Ebb are aware that the album has been a while coming. Bon and Douglas are working on doing a release of some sort of material in the meantime. Maybe remixes, extra tracks or somesuch, while they finalise the details of the album release. At this point they have a lot of material to
choose from. Regardless of the business bullshit, the band think it’s a great Ebb album and they are very eager to get it out and start playing it live on


As for Maven. Well, NE takes up most of Bon's time at the moment. He have been writing new Maven material and as soon as Bon can get enough time, he will finish that up and put it out. It will probably be an EP of maybe 6 songs, as time does not really allow him to do much more than that.
