Cabaret Voltaire 'The Crackdown' LP Reissue

Cabaret Voltaire 'The Crackdown' LP Reissue
    • ‘The Crackdown’ is the fourth studio album by Cabaret Voltaire. It was released in 1983. 

    • This is Cabaret Voltaire’s first album after Chris Watson’s departure. 

    • “One of Cabaret Voltaire’s strongest albums, ‘The Crackdown’ features the band working a number of menacing electronic textures into a basic dance / funk rhythm; the result is one of their most distinctive, challenging records.” - AllMusic 

    • The CD and digital download formats also include four extra tracks that were issued as a free 12” with initial copies of the LP on original release. 

    • Cabaret Voltaire, alongside Human League, Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget and The Normal, were at the forefront of the UK electronic movement of the late 70s. 

    • Way ahead of their time, Cabaret Voltaire’s blend of dance music, techno, dub, house and experimental made them, without a doubt, one of the most influential acts of the last 35 years. 

    • All audio remastered from the original tapes. 

    • Vinyl cut by Stefan Betke aka Pole. 

    • LP format includes download code.
