“National Service Rewind” – The Tivoli vs Cabaret Voltaire (Shiva) [ALBUM] February 10, 2010Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
Legendary electronic pioneers Cabaret Voltaire re-enter the musical fray with a new single and album on Shiva Records. The album, “National Service Rewind“, is a collaboration between Cabaret Voltaire and new Sheffield rock band The Tivoli, recorded at Cabaret Voltaire‘s legendary Western Works studios.
“National Service Rewind” is a sonic juggernaut that cleaves all conceptions of dance rock crossover in two and dives deep into the jugular to spit blood, bone and baritone. There are no niceties here, no musical politesse, just a war of electronic attrition, psychotic, psychedelic rock and tower-block rocking beats peppered by juddering, Jamaican Dancehall bass.
South Yorkshire’s hottest new rock band, The Tivoli, have been thrown into the blender for a total shakedown courtesy of the godfathers of electronica, the legendary Cabaret Voltaire. Made in Sheffield, this is a Steel City Ruckus that will reverberate from Shanghai to Seattle.
Already on a local high, selling out every show in Sheffield and now preparing to headline their biggest ever show at O2 Academy 1 on April 17th, as well as being heralded by all local tastemaker media and being tipped by the likes of Richard Hawley, The Tivoli came under the scrutiny of Cabaret Voltaire originator and main man Richard H Kirk at a typically heaving live show some months ago. Discovering that the founding father of the post-punk Sheffield music scene was actually impressed by the politically charged, sample-laced, art-rock furore of The Tivoli, four young musicians got the beers in pronto and hatched a collusion of collision knowing that their own rock’n’roll vision would be irreparably shattered and bombed to bits by an electronic blizzard. The Tivoli sacrificed their indie rock soul at the altar of Cabaret Voltaire’s legendary Western Works studios and the slaughter began.
“National Service Rewind” will be released on May 3rd 2010 and will be preceded by a single, “Amsterdam Sam“, which will ship on April 26th.
