referencing Extended Play, 7", EP, RT 003
Caberet Voltaire's debut release helped to usher in the industrial template that would soon morph into myriad arcane directions. This first single has much of the fingerprints of contemporaries Throbbing Gristle, but the songs are slightly less damaged, and possibly even narrative (in the same way that say, Burrough's 'Naked Lunch' is narrative) in contrast to the first 2 TG LP's. The release is a formative, skeletal, unnerving and oddly inviting in its deconstructed art-marred take on deranged industrial pop music. My copy has all the requisite crackles and pops one would expect from an almost 40 year old record, which only adds to the crepitating, otherworldly nature of the release. 'Do the Mussolini' sounds a bit like if you ate a bag of psychedelic mushrooms and put an early Talking Heads record on at 20 RPM's...which is pretty amazing. A cool premiere single from a massively influential band!
