Flood joins Nitzer Ebb to complete first album in a decadePosted on 02/05/08
Essex school friends Douglas McCarthy and Vaughan (Bon) Harris have joined up with Jason Payne (who played drums on the 1995 Nitzer Ebb album "Big Hit") to finish up the first new Nitzer Ebb record in over a decade. It's not the only familiar name that is popping up. The band also enlisted producer and notorious tea spiller Mark Ellis aka Flood. McCarthy finished his vocals just in time to focus first on some concert dates with his Fixmer / McCarthy project which is about to release the "Into the night" album.
Capitalizing on the success of the 2006 Nitzer Ebb reunion world tour, Nitzer Ebb began work on new material in Los Angeles in early 2007. During 2007 Kourtney Klein left the band to be replaced by Jason Payne. A first track, "Once you see", with Depeche Mode songwriter Martin Lee Gore on backing vocals was played in June 2007 by Dave Clarke in his White Noise show on VPRO's 3 Voor 12 as Side-Line reported back then. This track along with "Payroll" were debuted live as Nitzer Ebb played a handful of shows and festivals during 2007. Below is the band live at work in Argentina in 2006.
