Cabaret Voltaire announce 'Collected Works 1983-1985'

Industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire announce the latest release in their continued series of retrospectives on Mute Records with '#8385 (Collected Works 1984-1985)'. A six CD / four vinyl and two DVD box set, which is set for release on 4th November 2013.

The box set collates four of Cabaret Voltaire’s classic mid-period releases – remastered - on CD and vinyl - 'The Crackdown' (1983, on the 30th anniversary of its release), 'Micro-Phonies' (1984), 'Drinking Gasoline' (1985) and 'The Covenant, The Sword and the Arm of the Lord' (1985) alongside a CD of Cabaret Voltaire’s 12” tracks from the period and a CD of 12 unreleased tracks entitled 'Earthshaker'.

DVD1, 'Cabaret Voltaire Live', collates two live shows, the Bedford Boys Club (18.08.84) and Hammersmith Palais (02.12.84) and DVD2 is the long awaited DVD release of 'Gasoline In Your Eye' (1985), an experimental video showcase previously only available on VHS plus the four promotional videos from the time.

Also included is a 40-page 12" booklet, notes about 'Earthshaker', an essay by Phil Barnes and new sleeve notes by Richard H. Kirk.

The box set follows on from the recent vinyl re-release for 'Red Mecca', which was remastered by Pole’s Stefan Betke. 

The band will also release, in early 2014, '#7885 (Electro Punk to Techno Pop 1978 - 1985)' which will compile for the first time, both periods of Cabaret Voltaire together on one release.
