Numero Group, the reissue label responsible for some truly excellent Codeine and Unwound box sets, among others, has announced it’s releasing a box set of early White Zombie material. It’s called It Came From N.Y.C., and is being released as a 5xLP and 3xCD set, featuring their early, out-of-print albums, EPs and singles. It also features a 108-page book with previously unreleased photos and an essay by Pitchfork contributor Grayson Currin. It’s out June 3.
It Came From N.Y.C. compiles the God’s on Voodoo Moon 7-inch single (1985), the Pig Heaven 7-inch single (1986), Psycho-Head Blowout EP (1987), Soul-Crusher (1987), Make Them Die Slowly (1989), and God of Thunder EP (1989). The 39 tracks featured on the set were remastered by White Zombie guitarist J. Yuenger. It’s pressed on black, white and “toxic waste green” vinyl.
