One of the elements of December 2023’s rapturously received deluxe 6CD box set of Soft Cell’s stone cold 1981 electro pop classic, ‘Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret’, was the inclusion of the entire original album presented as extended 12” versions. Now released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2024, ‘Non-Stop Extended…’ features contemporary full-length versions of the tracks, many of which have never been on vinyl before.The debut album from Marc Almond and Dave Ball AKA Soft is truly an icon of electronic music. Not only did ‘Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret’ introduce the world to classic singles ‘Tainted Love’ (one of the biggest global hits of all time) ‘Bedsitter’ and ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’, it also shocked and delighted in equal measure with a 10-track song cycle straight outta the seedier, sleazier, darker side of life. ‘Sex Dwarf’, ‘Frustration’, ‘My Secret Life’, ‘Seedy Films’… four decades on, it still has the power to thrill, shock and swoon. Created by Soft Cell’s Dave Ball using only the original studio parts (they’re not remixes, they’re extendeds!), highlights include 2021’s ‘Tainted Love’ anniversary vinyl 10” rework plus new and unreleased 2023 box set versions of ‘Seedy Films’, ‘Sex Dwarf’, and ‘Entertain Me’. ‘Bedsitter’ is represented in its original 12” extended version as all concerned agreed it just could not be improved upon! Also included are a new rework of the band’s first single for Phonogram, ‘A Man Can Get Lost’ and new previously unreleased remixes of its flip, ‘Memorabilia’, by The Hacker and Daniel Miller.
