Cabaret Voltaire - Nag Nag Nag

Cabaret Voltaire's second single on Rough Trade. You either love or hate Cabaret Voltaire's early material. I always liked 'Nag Nag Nag', a mix of electronic and punk. The b-side does not appear to have been released, so here it is, I think this one is only for the Cabaret Voltaire die-hards, it definitely doesn't work for me.

Often called 'The Cabs' by their fans and named after a nightclub in Zürich Switzerland that was a centre for the early Dada (I'm not gonna do a history lessons so you'll have to look it up yourself) movement . If you like them there is lot's more on their official site just follow the link.

Give them a try and see what you think, and leave a comment.

For you real trivia people out there, you will find 'Another Porky Prime Cut' etching on the a-side.

Band: Cabaret Voltaire
Label: Rough Trade
Year: 1979
Tracks:
1. "Nag Nag Nag."
2. Is That me (Finding Someone At The Door Again?)

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:


If you like this then buy this, all the a-sides are on it, the b-sides are not. If you just want a nice clean digital version of the a-side you can this on itunes:
