Juno-nominated Canadian cult-hero Nash the Slash's early catalogue is set to be reissued through Canadian label Artoffact Records.

Artoffact will reissue CD and vinyl remasters of Nash's first record, Dreams & Nightmares, as well as his most popular full-length Children of The Night, the super-rare live album Hammersmith Holocaust, and the EP Bedside Companion. Long-time Nash admirer Gary Numan has penned the liner notes for Hammersmith Holocaust.

In 1980, Nash the Slash released his best-known album, Children of the Night. It was his second full-length release and first with vocals. During this time Nash toured the UK with Gary Numan and also contributed to Numan's DANCE album. The album featured Nash's biggest hit, Swing Shift, as well as Dark Wave covers of the Stones' "19th Nervous Breakdown" and "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple.

The album turned Nash into a Canadian icon and led to further tours with Iggy Pop and The Tubes. Years later, AllMusic called it "an awe-inspiring sound" and "a very strong album," and when Nash passed away in 2014, Billboard, the CBC, The Toronto Star, Now Magazine, and The Globe & Mail all sang his praises.

The Artoffact Records CD reissue includes six bonus tracks. The audio and artwork have been restored to the highest possible quality, and the set comes with a spectacular booklet showcasing many unreleased photos of Nash backstage and on-stage. The CD comes in a beautiful 6-panel digipak.

"Nash was quite possibly the most unique performer on the planet."
-Gary Numan
