is re-releasing his complete back-catalogue. Each re-release has both the fully remastered version of the original album (with special bonus material) on disc one and on the second disc, a totally rewritten and reinterpretation of some selected songs from the original album by
himself rerecorded with current technologies.
"Solitary Confinement" is without any doubt the album that has forever seated the Danish artist on the throne of classic dark EBM. An album froth with countless club hits in the likes of "Strap Me Down", "Adrenalin Rush" and "Evil Speaks"... an album that established Leaether Strip
as THE reference trademark for aggressive electronics with distorted vocals performed with a strong sense for melody and carrying choruses.
Once again, the "Retention N.3" box includes 2 complementary albums: first of which is the "Solitary Confinement" CD remastered by Claus Larsen
himself, giving a stronger and wider sound to this chef d'oeuvre while staying very faithful to the original work. The original track-list has also been extended to 16 tracks with the addition of tracks from the "Material" EP.
Next comes the "Voluntary Confinement" CD which gathers some 10 selected tracks taken from disc one, totally re-written and re-recorded by Leaether Strip
in the 2009 upgraded Strip Farm studio, benefiting from today's technologies and Claus Larsen
's acquired expertise through the decades. Add to this 2 brand new songs with "Voluntary Confinement" and "The End", as well as a very cool melodic "Taeknopop" version of the interstellar hit "Strap Me Down".
The fully extended power blast is a guarantee for Leaether Strip
's faithful and ever growing fanbase. The "Retention" series proves that Electronic Body Music is "NOT" dead and allows the younger fan generation to discover the early work of the living legend Leaether Strip
. Once again a series proving that good old giants still have what it takes to command today's dancefloors. Both discs are NOT available separately and are only sold in this deluxe carton box.
