Cabaret VoltaireThe Original Sound of Sheffield:'78/'82 Best Of (Mute) Like the Dadaist performance troupe they're named after, the sound of industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire in their early years is the sound of pure art. Brutally manipulated vocals, white noise collages, and eerie carnivalesque synths present an absurd clash of aural brutality and plush jigs as faux-happy as a John Wayne Gacy clown painting. Proto-industrial cyberpunk classic "Nag Nag Nag" is both the first and finest piece of darkwave anarchy ever set to tape.
