Invada Records is to issue ‘DROKK’, a box set comprising collaborations by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow – who’s also the label’s owner – and soundtrack composer Ben Salisbury. The album’s concept is based on the Judge Dredd comic book series, “drokk” being the swear word of choice among residents of Dredd’s sprawling home state, Mega-City One. In other words, it’s sci-fi for “fuck”.

Anyway. The “mega edition” version of the release, which is confined to just 400 copies, will come in bespoke metal film canisters containing two ten-inch vinyl LPs. Each will also include a ‘bunker’ deluxe edition CD and a ‘drokk-card’ granting online access to extra digital material. Oh, and a t-shirt.

This beast will be released alongside the standard digital edition on 7 May, and is available to pre-order here.
