Colourbox - Music Of The Band (1982-1987)

Limited to 1,000 copies, this CD was compiled by artist Wolfgang Tillmans (the first non-British winner of the Turner Prize) to accompany his exhibition in Berlin celebrating the work of Colourbox.

The cover art for the record is from an unseen photograph series of Wolfgang’s comprising his prized Canon Colour Laser Copier, being dismantled after a decade of service; “80ies technology has influenced me a lot. When I won the Turner Prize I bought this copier with the money. Ten years later it was no longer repairable and I made this 'deconstruction' of it."
