    label: intone

    The Intone label was originally founded back in 1992 as a vehicle for Richard H Kirk's Sandoz project, initially a series of three 12 singles. Richard H Kirk is perhaps better known as co founder and now sole member of the hugely influential Cabaret Voltaire. The Intone label is now relaunched with a set of Cabaret Voltaire live recordings from 1982 and 1985. Live in Liverpool (1982), live in Sheffield (1982) and Live in Toronto (1985). Cabaret Voltaire circa 1982 was kind of post-Rough Trade, pre-Bizarre/Virgin. Following on from and with the same line up as the successful dates in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka), resulting in the live album Hai, the 2 live recordings from 1982 on these CDs come from what was referred to as the 2x45 tour. The performances here are unique in that they show Cabaret Voltaire in a period of transition, following the departure of co founder Chris Watson, and had more studio recordings been made of this phase (see record 2 of 2x45) it could have well developed into something very different to the subsequent albums made during the Some Bizarre/Virgin period of 1983-1985. The recording from Toronto was the next to last date of a North American tour from April/May 1985. The Cabaret Voltaire live concerts of the 83-85 period were much more anarchic than the studio recordings and arguably just as interesting in their own way,like some kind of soundclash going on in real time... this release is a good primer for the box set, #8385 (Collected Works 1983-1985).
