Mute Song are pleased to announce that we now the publisher of a major part of the Cabaret Voltaire catalog.

Way ahead of their time the band were instrumental in defining a strand of popular music which became known as experimental or “industrial”, whose practitioners Cabaret Voltaire moved on to leave far behind them.

It is always difficult to assess any one group’s influence in an area such as contemporary music. However, if nothing else, Cabaret Voltaire (along with Throbbing Gristle) were responsible for pioneering the acceptability and use of many sounds that would not have been considered anything to do with music when the band started out in the early seventies.

They were also responsible for inspiring a number of groups who continue to work on the fringes of the music business and whose primary aims appear to be to widen the boundaries of ‘music’.
