Few bands can match their stamina: How many other bands can claim to be reinventing themselves after 30 years and 20 albums? The Nits specialize in making their latest album sound as little like the last as possible. This has simultaneously guaranteed them a stable degree of success across continental Europe, where fans appreciate their integrity and commitment to playing intimate venues.

Starting with their Giant, Normal, Dwarf tour in the early Nineties, the band continued to record their live shows around the world, playing gigs in cities like Vienna, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague. Hotel Europa collects these live recordings in what might be the ultimate Best Of Nits album.

Hotel Europa is available as a limited edition of 500 copies on translucent red coloured vinyl. The 2LP set contains a 4-page booklet.
