Coming alive to a Depeche-esque Nitzer Ebb

Coming almost immediately after the end of the Violator phase, Alan Wilder flexed his producer muscles (alongside Flood) when he produced Ebbhead, Nizter Ebb’s fourth album.

A few months ahead of its release in September 1991, Nitzer Ebb released the As Is teaser EP, a quartet of tracks with the third – Come Alive – mixed by Wilder (only a re-jigged Family Man eventually featured on the actual Ebbhead album.).

Come Alive is classic Wilder orchestration and pretty much captures the “sound” Depeche had at the time.

(Pretty intense video, too)
