Product Description

The Intone label was originally founded back in 1992 as a vehicle for Richard H Kirk's Sandoz project, initially a series of three 12" singles. Richard H Kirk is perhaps better known as co-founder and now sole member of the hugely influential Cabaret Voltaire. The Intone label is now relaunched with a 3 CD Box Set of Cabaret Voltaire live recordings from 1982 and 1985. Live in Liverpool (1982), Live in Sheffield (1982) and Live in Toronto (1985). Now distributed by Cargo, further releases are planned for 2014,including a new album by Kirk and also a 3CD box set of previously unreleased Kirk recordings from the mid nineties. Cabaret Voltaire circa 1982 was kind of post Rough Trade, pre Some Bizarre/Virgin. Following on from and with the same line up as the successful dates in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka),resulting in the live album Hai, the 2 live recordings from 1982 on these CD's come from what was referred to as the '2x45' tour. The performances here are unique in that they show Cabaret Voltaire in a period of transition, following the departure of co-founder Chris Watson, and had more studio recordings been made of this phase (see record 2 of '2x45') it could have well developed into something very different to the subsequent albums made during the Some Bizarre/Virgin period of 1983-1985. The recording from Toronto was the next to last date of a North American tour from April/May 1985. The Cabaret Voltaire live concerts of the 83-85 period were much more anarchic than the studio recordings and arguably just as interesting in their own way, like some kind of soundclash going on in realtime...this release will be a good primer for the forthcoming Cabaret Voltaire box set, #8385 (Collected Works 1983-1985) out on Mute Records in November.

With the high-profile reissue of CV's somewhat and unfairly maligned mid-period (actually their most crucial phase), I feared this boxset from Intone (RHK's own label) was a cynical cash-in release and wouldn't add a great deal to the band's legacy -as such releases traditionally do.

I'm happy and still a little surprised to report the opposite: these are important and high quality recordings. The clarity is impressive, the quality of material and performance is thrilling -sometimes the Cabs could be quite listless and dull live -and genuinely funky, in fact, I found myself grooving hard to CD1, unable to sit still and having a lil' skank to Diskono; the band are in good form here.

The box is well produced, includes quality photographs and insightful notes. All in all, excellent.

The two first CD's of this live recording of CV are dating from their most interesting live period in 82 (personal meaning),corresponding to the "2 x 45" album, just after the departure of Chris Watson and before their engagement in their "Dance Techno Trance "period. The sound is a mix of old and new: that is hypnotizing cumbersome recording tapes alterning with very funky rythms (drumming was live for a big deal). They should have developped that kind of music instead of undertaking a total mutation losing nearly their originality. Fortunately, these records witness the Cabaret Voltaire while they were in this transitional state, freezing it for the eternity.

I must admit I was unsure about buying this box set initially. Firstly because some previous Cabs live LPs have proved to be a disappointment - witness Live At The Hacienda.'83/'86: 11.08.83/19.02.86. and secondly because two of the three discs are from the group's Rough Trade period which, whilst critically acclaimed, is my least favourite era of Cabaret Voltaire's work. Nevertheless, whilst browsing the net one night I succumbed - perhaps swayed by the quality of previous archival releases on Richard H. Kirk's label, Intone - and, I'm glad I did.

The first two discs are, in fact, particularly good despite the fact I don't favour their earlier work so much myself. The recording quality is excellent and the live performance seems to bring out something different by comparison with the band's recorded sound. Surprisingly the third disc is, perhaps, a minor disappointment. The quality of the recording, though by no means bad, is not in my opinion of the same standard as CDs one and two. Also, whilst the tracklist on the "85" disc contains some of my personal favourites, many of them sound like inferior live versions of the studio recordings (as is often the case with live albums). Stick with it though, because it gets into its stride nearer the end with the likes of "Sleepwalking", "Ghost Talk" and "Kino" - all totally original and never-bettered.

The package is a box containing the discs in three slip-cases plus a 26 page booklet of mostly photos though, some text at the end.

A nice little box for CV fans 20 Nov. 2013
By Fabio Franco - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A nice companion to the #8385 box, the quality of this 3 cd box is not as great as the big box manufactured by mute, but it's ok. The audio is good, very similar to other CV live releases. This "Archive 828285 Live" doesn't have the RH Kirk signature that Amazon shows, but my big #8385 box have a certificate with his signature, so I'm ok with that ;)
