Cabaret Voltaire – James Brown / Bad Self (Part One) (12″)


It’s like neglecting a baby, the uglier twin, so apologies for my viewers and followers ( there’s ten now!) The clunkier , posterior blog has been a bit barren for the 80’s fans so I bring you some classic Cabaret Voltaire. First up is this amazing, 1984, John Tokes Potoker produced “James Brown” that does not have one single James Brown sample in it!!! It’s electro funk of the highest order with prehistoric samples and those insistant horns. Loved it then and loved it now !! B-side “Bad Self….” is more your Cabs electro groove. Love the refrain “Mercenary” reminds me of Man City !!  A forgotten classic
