'7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 - 1985)' compiles two distinct periods of Cabaret Voltaire - 1978-81 and 1983-85 - for the first time together on one release and follows the re-mastered vinyl release of 'Red Mecca' and already legendary and sold out box set, '8385 (Collected Works 1983 - 1985)'. Featuring classic tracks such as 'Nag Nag Nag', 'Do The Mussolini (Headkick)', 'Sensoria', 'Landslide', 'I Want You' and 'Just Fascination' and curated by Richard H Kirk. The compilation travels from 1978-81 with a line up of Richard H Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson, when Cabaret Voltaire were (mostly) recording at the Western Works Studios in Sheffield and releasing records on Rough Trade and from 1983-85 after Watson's departure when Kirk and Mallinder released via the Some Bizzare label on Virgin Records.
