Occupying the middle ground between punk and industrial, there was a British music group from Sheffield, England called Cabaret Voltaire.
While their earliest performances were Dada-influenced performance art, Cabaret Voltaire went on to blend pop with dance music, techno, dub house and experimental electronic music, evolving into one of the most prolific and important groups of their time. While their tenure was short, their impact was no less profound and influential to the bands they would help to shape in the future.
It is with this in mind that, “WHY KILL TIME (WHEN YOU CAN COVER CABARET VOLTAIRE)“, was conceived.
Bringing together bands such as: AkA, Bestial Mouths, Bioassay, Black Agent, Canter, Elegant Machinery, God Module, Having Issues, Kriistal Ann, Maleagant, Manufactura, Microchip Junky, Mirland/Larsen, Missing Witness, NØIR, PulseWidthMod & Databomb, Snowbeasts and SØLVE.
Eighteen bands with different approaches to music, joined by the common thread of paying a respectful homage to one of the progenitors that they all owe a small piece of their sound to. “WHY KILL TIME (WHEN YOU CAN COVER CABARET VOLTAIRE)” will be available digitally through Metropolis on October 19th, 2018.
