If you enjoyed Cabaret Voltaire back then, check out Wrangler with Stephen Mallinder.

Hello Everyone,

I wrote a new blog post about Cabaret Voltaire & Throbbing Gristle, on the same bill at Sheffield University in June 1980.

Enjoy.

Person To Person
Mirror Crack'd
Vendino Pact
to name but 5. The Rock on the Rates gigs were always a good way to see bands cheap. I can remember my careers teacher giving us free tickets for New Order at the Poly. Those were the days.
Vision, didn't they hit the charts with Lucifer's Friend?
Absolutely loved that song.

Great song from a great era, but not sure if it ever charted or not?

Lucifers Friend was a brilliant track, I might have to go in the loft and dig that one out.
Here's the video.... https://youtu.be/Mod9ob_SdJE

It didn't chart sadly according to the Guinness Book of British Singles.

Vision...used to think the intro sounded like fade to grey, I didn't realise it was released so long ago.
