Cabaret Voltaire - Micro-Phonies

This month’s bonus commentary podcast finds us discussing the charming confidence of Cabaret Voltaire’s overt push into funk and pop territory, 1983’s Micro-Phonies. A band whose evolution in some ways mirrors that of industrial as a genre, Cabs don’t get nearly enough love and discussion around these parts as they perhaps should, so we’re atoning with some discussion of Cold War paranoia, the free-flows of influence from dub, electro, funk, industrial, and post-punk, plus the band’s johnny-on-the-spot conversance with the emerging cyberpunk aesthetic.
