The Crackdown by Cabaret Voltaire

Here we have a reissue of Cabaret Voltaire’s fifth LP The Crackdown. The first full-length the band released after the departure of founding member Chris Watson, this is a disorientating and sinister set of industrial anti-pop tunes. The Normal and Fad Gadget are evoked by The Crackdown’s avant blend of techno, minimal wave, synth-pop and more. It was named the 11th best album of 1983 by the NME, don’t you know. The CD edition also includes the quartet of tunes that made up The Crackdown’s accompanying Doublevision EP.
