Cabaret Voltaire release '#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 - 1985)'

The latest in the Cabaret Voltiare compi,lations, '#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985'  collates two distinct periods of Cabaret Voltaire - 1978-81 and 1983-85 – for the first time together on one release and follows on from the the re-mastered vinyl release of 'Red Mecca' and old out box set, '#8385 (Collected Works 1983 – 1985)'.

Featuring classic tracks such as 'Nag Nag Nag', 'Do The Mussolini (Headkick)', 'Sensoria', 'Landslide', 'I Want You' and 'Just Fascination', '#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985)' was curated by Richard H Kirk who explains, “I decided to gather the more concise elements of the work… Hence the choice of 7” singles, edits and shorter album tracks, a kind of sound bite take on CV.”

Kirk points out that this  “was a time where we got to do what we do, but in different areas, we wanted to push the boundaries of electronic music, we wanted to place what we were doing into places where it really shouldn't be. We certainly didn't want to carry on repeating what we'd done for the ten years previous.”

The release features sleevenotes from Cabaret Voltaire’s Richard H Kirk and Mute founder Daniel Miller and is available as on CD, Double vinyl and digital download on 23 June 2014.
