Product Description

Do not adjust your screen!Instead prepare yourself for a mind-bending sonic assault as Cabaret Voltaire perform live at London's famous Town And Country Club in 1992.Pioneers of techno,industrial,sample-based electronica,Cabaret Voltaire successfully blurred the line between music and performance art.The tracks performed in this DVD highlight Cabaret Voltaire's spirit of experimentation as classics like The Message and Plasticity 6 are given unique twists and also features snippets of Steve Lamacq interviewing both Kirk and Mallinder.While bands such as Kraftwerk,New Order and The Orb achieved greater notoriety within the genres,Cabaret Voltaire's longevity,influence and experience has ensured they are without doubt a cornerstone in the history of electronic and industrial music.Hailing from the steel city of Sheffield,England,it is perhaps no surprise that Cabaret Voltaire were trailer blazers in the development of industrial and experimental electronic music.Formed in 1973 the group originally consisted of Stephen Mallinder,Richard H.Kirk and Chris Watson and took their name from the Swiss nightclub famous for being the centre of the early Dada art movement. Their early work was a journey into the relative unknown,widely experimenting with new sounds and technics that wrote the blueprint for the rise and evolution of industrial music.In 1978 they signed to Rough Trade Records,where they released numerous singles and albums including Nag Nag Nag and The Voice Of America(1980)and Red Mecca in 1981.After several years of touring across Europe and Japan,the group(now minus Chris Watson)decided on a more commercial approach and landed a contract with Some Bizzare/Virgin Records in 1983.The move worked as the album The Crackdown reached number 31 in the UK Albums Chart thanks in part to a more dance-orientated sound.1984's Micro-Phonies also charted and spawned two hit singles Sensoria and James Brown.A growing underground dance scene and the emergence of house music added to Cabaret Voltaire's popularity as the music industry seemed to catch up with their groundbreaking sound.By the late 80s and early 90s the band had begun to wain,with Mallinder and Kirk both pursuing solo projects.Artists:Richard H.Kirk-keyboards,Stephen Mal Mallinder-vocals,bass and FX.Track Listing:1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential viewing for Cabaret Voltaire fans 5 Oct 2013
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

This 2013 DVD release has gone under the radar and only came to me via an Amazon recommendation. At first I was sceptical, expecting it to be some sort of poor quality unofficial edition and put off from buying it, but then I checked out the You Tube clips and in fact "Live from London" is of perfectly satisfactory quality. It appears to be from the ITV archives (Central Television) but I certainly don't remember this being broadcast at the time because if I had seen it, back in 1992 (when this performance dates from) I would have LOVED it.

Today it stands up as a document of very late period Cabaret Voltaire. So late, in fact, I was surprised to find out that Stephen Mallinder was still in the band. This must have been recorded around the time of their instrumental Plasticity LP but the material on it (or most of it) is in fact culled not only from "Plasticity" but also the later (and again instrumental) International Language and The Conversation albums. Although Mallinder was credited on those records I think many, myself included, had assumed the lack of vocals was down to the fact he had left the band - evidently not.

The visuals? Well to anyone not familiar with the Cabs' work this video might seem a little odd. A grizzled Pet Shop Boys maybe? The 50 minute 6 song performance is "enhanced" by graphics which detract from the live feel. Not sure if this was the TV company's idea or the band's - either way it probably needed something to liven it up slightly. Richard H.
