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 material, over 130 tracks and 12 hours of 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. Each and every track from their main Phonogram era of 1980-1984 is represented on this collection.

Released on September 7th 2018 the ten discs will be presented in a deluxe box measuring 10″x10″ which will also include a extensive book, packed with photos from all stages of the band’s career, alongside a new essay by Simon Price.
