Die Krupps & Nitzer Ebb – The Machineries Of Joy (Germany 12″ Picture Disc)

Posted by DjPaulT on 21st September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

REQUEST

“The Machineries Of Joy” is a 1989 collaboration between German industrial metal/EBM band Die Krupps and British EBM group Nitzer Ebb. The collaboration became a hit on the U.S. dance charts peaking at #25.

Both remixes featured here are exclusive to this picture disc and a rare German 12″ promo and never available on CD.

**As with most picture discs the sound quality is usually not very good and the discs were mainly used as collector items. This picture disc is no exception although in beautiful near mint condition. I have tried my best to present theses rare versions in the best possible quality considering the source.
