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 time line -- perhaps because they continued recording long after other luminaries (Throbbing Gristle, Suicide, Chrome) called it quits. Also, 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 the following decade. Among their best albums are Red Mecca (1981), 2X45 (1982), and The Crackdown (1983), while #7885 Electropunk to Technopop (2014) rounds up their often brilliant run of singles. ~ John Bush
