Cabaret Voltaire



"Hailing from Sheffield, England, Stephen Mallinder & Richard H. Kirk were the backbone of Cabaret Voltaire, and creators of many of the techniques that fueled the industrial and electronic genres for years. From the droning noise-punk of PlayNag Nag Nag to the sublime electronic pop of PlayEasy Life, with industrial funk hits like PlaySensoria in between, the Cabs’ career spanned 3 decades. Many recent/current electronic artists owe a great deal of debt to Cabaret Voltaire’s experimental beginnings, in particular Richard H Kirk’s paranoid otherworldly samples, fused with gritty dark looped percussion. Kirk also had several solo outings, with his Sweet Exorcist incarnation opening the doors for Warp Records, in their “bleep” days that were the harbinger for the sonic experimentation of Aphex Twin, Autechre, The Black Dog and more."

Those jerks at Last FM seem to have forgotten Chris Watson who was a key member of the Cabs when these 2 excellent albums were made.
