About this item
‘The Crackdown’ is the fourth studio album by Cabaret Voltaire. It was released in 1983.
This is Cabaret Voltaire’s first album after Chris Watson’s departure.
“One of Cabaret Voltaire’s strongest albums, ‘The Crackdown’ features the band working a number of menacing electronic textures into a basic dance / funk rhythm; the result is one of their most distinctive, challenging records.” - AllMusic
Way ahead of their time, Cabaret Voltaire’s blend of dance music, techno, dub, house and experimental made them, without a doubt, one of the most influential acts of the last 35 years.
