Add It Up (1981-1993) (2-LP)
The textbook American cult band of the ‘80s, Violent Femmes captured the essence of teen angst with remarkable precision. 40 years on, their legacy remains strong. Add It Up (1981-1993) documents the trailblazing trio’s stylistic development as they rose to become one of alt-rock’s most commercially-successful acts. This 23-track compilation includes hits such as “Blister in the Sun,” “American Music,” and “Gone Daddy Gone,” plus live recordings of favorites like “Add It Up,” and “Kiss Off,” alongside a trove of demos, B-sides, interstitial voice recordings, and rarities.
