Cabaret Voltaire have often conjured up the image of a dark open frequency, gnawing away at the accepted idea of sound and visual presentation in pop music, evolving from their earliest dabblings in Dada to becoming vigorous exponents of radical dance music.
These pages place the scores to the symphonies and the subtitles to the films by cutting across the vein of this influential group and by excorcising the Cabaret Voltaire myth. It is essential reading for those interested in the attitudes and opinions that stretched and frayed the fringes of 1980's pop culture.
