Marc-Almond-300x300Personally curated and overseen by Marc himself, the 10-CD ‘Trials Of Eyeliner’ box set is both the first and the definitive career overview of one of contemporary music’s best respected, most consistently inventive artists – from the huge pop success of Soft Cell to the tormented beauty of the Marc And The Mambas projects to a dazzling solo career that’s encompassed smash hits, cutting-edge electronica, torch songs, rock ‘n’ roll and much, much more. The 10-disc set is themed into three sections: the four-disc ‘History’ recounts Marc’s journey via his favourite and best-loved album tracks and B-sides; ‘Singles’ gathers together all of Marc’s official Soft Cell, Mambas and solo singles in (mainly) chronological order for the first time; finally the 3-disc section ‘Gems’ pulls together nuggets and rarities from fan-only releases, one-off collaborations, and soundtracks contributions and includes 18 tracks previously unreleased from Marc’s own collection.Beautifully presented with new artwork the box also comes with a 64-page hardback book packed with photos and featuring Marc in conversation with Alexis Petridis in an all-new career overview.
