This Just In: It Came From N.Y.C.

One of my favorite Miami concert memories is seeing White Zombie back in ’96 at the Miami Arena. I’m actually surprised I remember it though, since it was my first time in a pit and I got a mild concussion. The show they put on was nothing short of a circus spectacle and it changed my impressionable, 12-year-old life forever. I wore my White Zombie concert tee until threadbare and virtually inkless. To this day I still have conversations with random (and non-random) people who were at that show. Randy, our resident metal aficionado staff member was there too, and he might even be a bigger White Zombie fan than me (but did he read the lyrics to “Grease Paint And Monkey Brains” to his 8th grade English class on poetry day?) Hmmmm…

Anyway, when we found out about White Zombie’s early stuff  being released to the masses, we both lost our shit (and sorta fought over the promo). Soooooo – for all of you obsessives who relentlessly called record stores in your teenage spare time looking for the impossible-to-acquire Soul-Crusher or Make Them Die Slowly titles, THIS IS IT! Try it now – give us a call and ask for them, and your dreams (nightmares?) will FINALLY come true. Thanks, Numero Group… -MLE

White Zombie – It Came From N.Y.C. 5LP
Watch: It Came From N.Y.C. release trailer
“Years before Beavis and Butt-head headbanged ‘Thunder Kiss ’65’ and ‘More Human than Human’ into the eternal rock video canon, there was primordial White Zombie—a quintessential, diabolically loud byproduct of Manhattan’s underground rock scene, born of art-school rendezvous and squalid apartment circumstance. It Came From N.Y.C. is the most exhaustive attempt so far to document the band’s wondrously ugly birth. Get reintroduced to White Zombie as New York noise-rock, a grotesque creation that clawed and threatened its way to crossover metal glory.

On June 3rd 2016, Numero resurrects White Zombie’s eternally out-of-print early EPs and LPs as It Came From N.Y.C. Spread across five LPs or three compact discs, all 39 tracks have been remastered by guitarist J. Yuenger and packaged alongside the original lurid artwork. The accompanying 108-page book painstakingly documents White Zombie’s punishing progression through scores of unpublished photos, period discography, a T-shirtography, and tales from the terrifying early years that stitch together the sordid story of a band whose true power eclipsed its mainstream heyday. White Zombie lives. Don’t be afraid.” -Numero Group
