Finishing up synth week with an album by Cabaret Voltaire, a post-punk experimental band out of Sheffield, England. This album Red Mecca produced no singles but reached #1 on the UK charts in 1981. This was the band's fourth album, their next album 2x45 went on to be a major influence in the development of industrial music. The band was named after the nightclub in Switzerland which was the center of the Dada art movement in the early 20th century. Here are three feelers off the album, my favorite "Split Second Feeling," the instrumental "Landslide," and "Sly Doubt."
