Overview

In 1979, 25 years prior to the release of this compilation documenting a London club night, Cabaret Voltaire released a song called "Nag Nag Nag" -- a blaring, blistering, nagging song built on what sounded like rotting electronic instruments. It's very doubtful that, while making its initial impact, the song could have been connected in any way to a club night reliant on advances made in music around 1955. So there you have it: one example of how slowly music has moved during the past couple decades. Compiled by Johnny Slut, a DJ and the promoter of the club night that takes its name from that same Cabaret Voltaire song, this two-disc set makes for a snapshot of what you might've heard if you had set foot in his domain. On the first disc, there's the newer material -- Swayzak's "I Dance Alone," Tiga's "Burning Down," Chicks on Speed's "We Don't Use Guitars," and T. Raumschmiere's gnashing cyborg-glam stomper "The Game Is Not Over." (Avenue D's "Do I Look Like a Slut?" is of note for the fact that it's one of the dumbest songs ever recorded, parody or not -- a fact the group no doubt takes pride in.) On the second disc, there's the older material that inspired most of the tracks on the first; oft-compiled stuff like Gina X Performance's "No GDM," the Normal's "Warm Leatherette," Fad Gadget's "Back to Nature," and -- of course -- Cabaret Voltaire's "Nag Nag Nag" are some of the highlights. This disc trumps the first in a major way, and it's not just because the groups on it did the innovating.
