Music today was Cabaret Voltaire’s insane album The Voice Of America (1980). It was the first album I bought by them and I bought it new when it came out and I still have it. It’s like a strange space-age Residents. Experimentation using the sounds of the day can make things dated but this record is just timeless. It reminds me of The Beatles‘ approach to Revolution 9 on the White Album (1968), not a comparison I’ve heard made before. Sadly this week we lost original member Richard H. Kirk. So in honour of this crazy madman take your brain on a wild ride, you probably need it for perspective as you contemplate what they put in the water in Sheffield.
