This product is currently sold out.

Personally curated and overseen by Marc himself, the 10-disc 'Trials Of Eyeliner' box set is both the first and the definitive career overview of one of contemporary music's most respected artists - from the huge pop success of Soft Cell to the tormented beauty of the Marc And The Mambas projects to a dazzling solo career that's encompassed smash hits, cutting-edge electronica, torch songs, rock 'n' roll and much, much more.

The 10-disc set is themed into three sections: the four-disc 'History' recounts Marc's journey via his favourite and best-loved album tracks and B-sides; 'Singles' gathers together all of Marc's official Soft Cell, Mambas and solo singles mainly in chronological order for the first time; finally the 3-disc section 'Gems' pulls together nuggets and rarities from fan-only releases, one-off collaborations, and soundtracks contributions and includes 18 tracks previously unreleased from Marc's own collection.

Beautifully presented with new artwork the box also comes with a 64-page hardback book packed with photos and featuring Marc in conversation with Alexis Petridis in an all-new career overview.

  • 10 CDs (189 tracks), housed in 2 x 6-page gatefold disc holders within a deluxe 240mm x 240mm slipcase
  • Includes all Marc's singles – including those by Soft Cell and Marc and the Mambas - plus 18 unreleased tracks and many more hard-to-find rarities and songs making their CD/digital début
  • 64-page hardcover book featuring a brand new interview/essay by Alexis Petridis and a wealth of photos and other imagery, many from Marc's own archive.
  • Cover art (and more within the package) by renowned graphic artist Stefan Fähler
  • Mastering carefully supervised by Marc's trusted writing partner/musical director, Neal X.
