Violent Femmes "Add It Up"

Violent Femmes "Add It Up"



The textbook American cult band of the '80s, Violent Femmes captured the essence of teen angst with remarkable precision. 40 years on, their legacy remains strong. 'Add It Up (1981-1993)' documents the trailblazing trio's stylistic development as they rose to become one of alt-rock's most commercially-successful acts.


This 23-track compilation includes hits such as "Blister in the Sun," "American Music," and "Gone Daddy Gone," plus live recordings of favourites like "Add It Up," and "Kiss Off," alongside a trove of demos, B-sides, interstitial voice recordings, and rarities.  Available on vinyl for the first time since its brief initial pressing in 1993
