Their third studio LP, I think. My favourite! You could call this electronic free jazz or noisy new wave or something else, you'll never talk alone.
CV at the top of their discrete experimental sound.
This 2013 reissue is fine, no remarkable remastering, perhaps a bit clearer = harder.

Forget the trance, funk, house of their later releases – “Red Mecca” is the Cabs in their industrial prime. Things begin and end with Henry Mancini’s “A Touch of Evil”, and everything in between is seething and grimy. By today’s standards the synths and vocoded snarling sounds a little dated, but that just adds to the fun. Just remember, without these guys, Skinny Puppy and all that followed may never have come into being.
