Cabaret Voltaire: Sheffield

Andy Gill, New Musical Express, 5 August 1978

CABARET VOLTAIRE performances, if I can make a sweeping generalisation, are always interesting but never satisfying. Interesting because they're prepared to probe, often at the cost of comfort and listenability, and unsatisfying because their probes are never definitive statements, more a case of throwing out ideas and finding that, yes, they hover!
