Product Description:

Nitzer Ebb: Bon Harris (vocals, percussion); Douglas McCarthy (vocals).
An early industrial-techno crossover effort, SHOWTIME shows Nitzer Ebb developing a more sophisticated approach to its own brand of synth-driven anthemic rock. "Getting Closer," the opening track, announces the change. Its melody rides a keyboard, marking a departure from the almost exclusively percussive arrangements of earlier Nitzer Ebb albums.
The band's tried and tested bare bones method works fine for "Rope" and "All Over," however. The melodies really come into play in "Lightning Man," by far the most spectacular cut on SHOWTIME, which utilizes an extravagant oboe sample in its chorus. Though the album marks a departure for Nitzer Ebb, it still bears the band's signature. Steady, fast, danceable electronic rhythms and energetic vocals make this record a treat for Ebbheads everywhere.
