Three-disc anthology released in 2003 of the experimental works recorded by Cabaret Voltaire in their attic in Sheffield between 1974 and 1978, before the group had attained notoriety. What you hear on these discs is the invention of analog electronic/industrial music, and it's surprisingly listenable. The first two discs are mostly just small experimental snippets, with the third disc attempting more conventional songs (even if the opener is titled "It's Not Music"), including early versions of CabVolt staples like "Nag Nag Nag" and "Do The Mussolini" and a washed-out, droning cover of the Velvet Underground's "Here She Comes Now."
And with that I'm probably done here for the summer ... I leave the country in a couple of days and I may or may not have reliable access to the internet. I'll either not post at all or I'll be posting some incredible find from a Russian used cassette shop every week. In either case, no one's really going to be downloading anything I put up. I trust pukeskywalkerblog's other contributors will keep things rolling through September and maybe I'll be back around. Take it easy.
