Boomkat Product Review:
Richard H Kirk's Intone label relaunches with a boxset of three CDs documenting Cabaret Voltaire live aktions in Liverpool, Sheffield and Toronto between 1982-85. Most notably the recordings start just after Chris Watson had left the band and they took on a new, "funkier" direction following their Rough Trade period and into the Some Bizarre/Virgin era recordings. CD1, 'Live at Liverpool warehouse 12.06.82' catches the band in lithe form, flexing tight drum machine and bass ably dubbed up by their soundman, Oz, and prodded with signature punkish yelps, documentary dialogue samples and wrecked, psychedelic electronics. CD2, 'Live at Sheffield Lyceum 27.08.82' follows very much in the same vein, even sharing a few tracks on the setlist, like 'Gut Level', 'Diskono' and 'Over And Over' for comparison, but it's shorter due to the fact there was a curfew at the venue, apparently overseen by dibble at the back of the room, acknowledged by Stephen Mallinder on the intro to 'Walls Of Sheffield'. CD3, 'Live At Toronto Concert Hall 05.05.85' documents their shift to a more supple, grooving and industrial-electro sound on eleven tracks including big highlights in the irresistible rendition of 'Sensoria' and the sticky electro sting of 'Kino'.
