Cabaret Voltaire
The Crackdown
Catalogue Number
Release Date
November 4, 2013


Kids, here’s an essential lesson in electronic pop: the landmark ‘83 album from industrial kings Cabaret Voltaire, their first following the departure of founder member Chris Watson. Steve Mallinder and Richard Kirk took their first steps towards pop, with tracks like the New Order-esque ‘Animation’ and the punky ‘Diskono’ still sounding radio-ready today. With a fill remaster from the original tape and a vinyl cut by dub producer Stefan Betke, this is an essential helping from the electronic melting pot.
