|Cabaret Voltaire The Crackdown Limited Remastered Vinyl LP + Download Code
· ‘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.
