iTunes Editors’ Notes

Richard H. Kirk is the sole remaining member of Cabaret Voltaire, and he handpicked this expansive retrospective to deliberately pull two distinct eras together. Therefore, the group’s years with founding member Chris Watson on Rough Trade Records (1978-1982) and the Some Bizarre years without Watson (1983-1985) both connect. Kirk pulls out highlights and, unlike on previous compilations, provides fans with the 7” versions of several Some Bizarre–era singles and not the extended 12” versions heard on previous collections. Obviously with a band as nonconformist as Cabaret Voltaire, there’s still plenty to hunt down—but for anyone seeking a quick, succinct summary that also works as pure entertainment, this is a worthwhile place to start. Kirk emphasizes the edited versions for a focused approach. All alternative music fans should own copies of “Do the Mussolini,” “Nag Nag Nag,” “Silent Command,” and “Kneel to the Boss,” for starters. Following through to “Sensoria,” “I Want You,” and “Warm” is further proof that CV never settled with one sound for long. They were true pioneers in electronic sound.

Though they're one of the most important groups in the history of industrial and electronic music, Cabaret Voltaire are sometimes forgotten in the style's timeline — perhaps because they continued recording long after other luminaries (Throbbing Gristle, Suicide, Chrome) called it quits. Also related to the fact is that CV rarely stayed in one place for long, instead moving quickly from free-form experimentalism through arty white-boy funk and on to house music in the late '80s and electronica...
