Murphy was at the cutting edge of Australian underground music since the 1970s, and later a key player in the forging of European industrial music. His influence and collaborative reach is extensively documented in this beautiful 3 CD set, spanning 40 years of musical output (from 1975 to 2015, the year of Murphy’s death). The bands and projects here of which Murphy was a member are a vertible roll call of the dark/noise/industrial canon, including NEWS, Whirlywirld, Orchestra of Skin and Bone, SLUB, SPK, Whitehouse, Lustmord, Browning Mummery, KnifeLadder and countless others.
The CDs are housed in a lavish full colour cardboard foldout box, which also includes a 32 page booklet with photos and notes by several Murphy collaborators and friends. Limited edition of 750, but only a handful available in Australia.
