  • Industrial Evolution


In the 80s, harsh market forces confronted Local Authorities and Independent record labels alike. Industrial Evolution juxtaposes Britain's leader Margaret Thatcher's stringent initiatives to privatize Local Government, with Cabaret Voltaire's rise to Indie stardom. Ultimately both buckled under the pressure of big business and paranoia. A highly cautionary tale, as a mood of rampant Conservatism ran roughshod over industrial Britain. This new book also includes as appendices all the interviews that made up Mick Fish's previous book Cabaret Voltaire: The Art of the Sixth Sense.
