The ultimate SI retrospective 4LP album is out since a little while and has already been sent out to many corners of this planet. Everybody is enjoying it so far and the album got some very interesting and positive reviews (see below).

These two double LP's combine 49 rare and unreleased tracks as well as some of Sudden Infant's most essential and radical work from the last twenty years. Beautifully housed in two fold-out double LP's with original cover paintings by Joke Lanz and an exclusive 4-page essay by GX Jupitter-Larsen. No CD or download releases planned.
This set runs the gamut of ritual action, early new wave/metal-on-metal punkers, organic noise eviscerations, dark drone works and hysterical body horror. Highly recommended!
If more than two hours of worth of music doesn't knock you out, a blow to the head with this mighty package will certainly do the trick.
Ohne Wenn und Aber ein Landmark-Release.
For those whos tastes run to the furthest edges of the bizarre, this compilation is essential listening. It's not just a basketload of savage and severe racket (although there's probably a good portion of that), but a very twisted alienating and unsettling listening, with plenty of unexplained gaps and musical brain-bafflers.
