If you’re were at all into the heavier side of electronic music, then you’ll have inevitably run into Cabaret Voltaire, the British band led by Richard Kirk. Although Kirk and his mates made music, they preferred to be known as an art project using heavy beats, sound collages, samples, and some pretty intense lyrics. In the process, Cabaret Voltaire influenced everyone from The Human League to Depeche Mode to Nine Inch Nails. That influence also extended into the world of techno and dance.
Back in CFNY’s Spirit of Radio days, this was a big favourite.
