Customer Review

on 22 October 2011
After ordering the 'redux' version of Peter Care's 'JOHNNYYESNO' film, I wanted to find out more about Cabaret Voltaire. Maybe I'm in a minority, but I actually prefer
their 1980's output to what they released during the late 1970's. The John Robie mix
of 'Yashar' still packs a punch today and influenced the Cabs future sound.

'Industrial Evolution' is a true story written by Mick Fish, who worked in a very tedious job for local government whilst being immersed in the Sheffield music scene
at the same time that Cabaret Voltaire struggled to keep their musical identity after signing to a major record label. Fish's story is fascinating and it also covers the birth of SAF Publishing, who could be described as being the Rough Trade of cultural and music book publishing. SAF have published books about Suicide; Can and Kraftwerk, as well as other mavericks and outsiders.

Any one with an interest in Cabaret Voltaire, Sheffield's music scene; the bad politics and cultural change within the age of greed, should buy this book.
