3 CD compilation of rare live material from the early 80s. The Intone label was originally founded back in 1992 as a vehicle for Richard H Kirks 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 influencial Cabaret Voltaire. The Intone label is now relaunched with a 3 CD Box Set of Cabaret Voltaire live recordings from 1982 and 1985. Live in Liverpool(1982), live in Sheffield(1982) and Live in Toronto(1985) .
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.
