Press Info:
Recoil Selected, a brand new selection of classic Recoil tracks will be released on 19 April 2010. The track listing has been chosen by Alan Wilder who explains: “The collection is made up of my personal favourites, remastered and edited together into what I consider a cohesive and total listening experience.”

Recoil Selected will be available as a single CD, double pack CD, limited edition 4 x vinyl box plus a limited edition deluxe 4 disc box set which is exclusively available from Mute Bank.

The double CD, vinyl box and deluxe box set features many new remixes and alternative versions, chosen and edited together by Alan Wilder and Paul Kendall, who has worked with Wilder for the past 10 years. The album features a varied selection of vocalists including Diamanda Galás, Joe Richardson, Douglas McCarthy, Samantha Coerbell, Toni Halliday and Maggie Estep.

In support of the album, Recoil has announced details of an Events tour, A Strange Hour with Alan Wilder & Paul Kendall, with dates across Europe and in the US between March & May. Each date promises to be a unique event – with special guests – and these live presentations mark the first time Recoil has ventured out of the studio.

Alan Wilder’s years in the music industry have seen him go from studio assistant to session keyboard player, but it was his 14 years as a member of Depeche Mode where he really honed his skills. With his attention to detail in the studio, Wilder pushed the boundaries even within the restrictive climate of commercial pop. As an antidote to the demands of the Mode, his studio project Recoil was born in the mid-eighties. Two albums were released: ‘Hydrology’ (1988) and ‘Bloodline’ (1990) both giving an indication of his expanding horizons. After his departure from Depeche Mode in 1995, Wilder resurrected Recoil full-time and has since released ‘Unsound Methods’ (1997), ‘Liquid’ (2000) and most recently ‘subHuman’ (2007).

Info :
Originally formed as a solo project by Dominik R. in 2004, Fredrik was added to the Menschdefekt line-up in 2009. Influenced by different genres such as Trance, FuturePop and others, the band’s sound is a fusion of Electro, Industrial and Goth with aggressive vocals that reflect their socially critical and provocative lyrics. As their namesake implies, their music focuses on topics of war, nationalism/ fascism, murder, consumer consumption and our wasteful society.

Menschdefekt’s first album, Realitaetsverlust, was produced and distributed in 2006, as a result of a friend´s request. Their second album, Degeneration, with even clearer song-structures and a more sophisticated sound, followed in the middle of 2007.

2008 was a big year for Menschdefekt. They won the Aesthetic Perfection Remix Contest to have their remix of “Schadenfreude” on Aesthetic Perfection’s A Violent Emotion bonus CD, and they released their Psych[a]otica EP. In addition, the band recorded their breakthrough hit “Stalingrad” in cooperation with Stahlnebel and Black Selket. The track found its way onto dance floors world wide, as well as spots on internet radio, and compilations such as Interbreeding X (BLC Productions) and Endzeit Bunkertracks Act IV (Alfa Matrix Label Group).

Their success in 2008 brought them to the attention of Infacted Recordings in Europe and Metropolis Records in North America who signed them to release their third album, The Human Parasite in 2010. With The Human Parasite, Menschdefekt has laid out its manifesto, and done so with driving force. In Japan there will be a special limited edition with bonus tracks released on Deathwatch Asia.
