Friday’s Factory treat today is from across the Pennines due East, from deepest Sheffield in 1982, by Cabaret Voltaire. A vocal sample asks ‘There’s 70 billion people on Earth. Where are they hiding?’ over some early 80s industrial electro. The 12″ single came with a John Robie remix which turned it further in the direction of the dancefloor but I’ve posted that before and the original is still worth your time. There’s a staff social on tonight at a bar in town. I’d be highly surprised if Cabaret Voltaire get played.

There’s 70 Billion People On Earth; Where Are They Hiding?

We’re in Sheffield this weekend; steel city, sex city, seven hills, Wednesday and United, industrial and electronic music capital of South Yorkshire. To celebrate Sheffield’s rich musical history here’s some Cabaret Voltaire from 1982, released on Factory from other side of the Pennines.
