Cabaret Voltaire reissue series to begin with seminal 1981 album Red Mecca

By , Jun 14 2013

Sheffield post-punk noiseniks Cabaret Voltaire are to receive the re-issue treatment from classic electronic label Mute.

Red Mecca, the band’s third album, was inspired by the rise of religious politics at the time of its release in 1981 on Rough Trade.

The reissue will be the first in a series, followed by #8385 (Collected Works 1983 – 1985) in the autumn, which compiles The Crackdown, Micro-Phonies, Drinking Gasoline and The Covenant, The Sword And The Arm Of The Lord. A bigger collection, #7885 (Electro Punk to Techno Pop 1978 – 1985), will appear in 2014.

Red Mecca will be released on 22 July and can be pre-ordered now on the band’s website. [via The Quietus]

Cabaret Voltaire’s Richard H. Kirk offered up a scuzzy remix of ‘Two Different Ways’ by industrial resurrectionists Factory Floor last year.
