This comprehensive 10 disc – 9CDs and 1 DVD – box set tells the definitive story of one of electronic music’s most thrilling and pioneering acts, Marc Almond and Dave Ball, better known as Soft Cell. With over 50% previously unreleased music, ‘Keychains & Snowstorms’ is a genuine treasure trove of art-school experimentation, huge pop hits, ground-breaking club tracks and piercing introspection straight out of bedsit land.

Containing remastered versions of both the A and B-sides of the band’s legendary early-‘80s 12” singles it comes augmented with an entire disc of new extended versions of Soft Cell classics, from Dave Ball. Using the original studio parts, Dave has taken 12 fan favourites, including album tracks, B-sides and the huge hits ‘Say Hello, Wave Goodbye’ and ‘Bedsitter’ and created new, extended masterpieces fit to take their place among the existing greats.

The box is 10”X10” square with a comprehensive book packed with photos and a new essay by Simon Price.
