Originally released in 1980 as the Cabs second long player on Rough Trade - another superb collection of twisted experimental sounds delivered by Chris Mal and Richard this time augmented by drummer Haydn Boyes-Weston. 'The Voice of America' fuses samples, vox-continental drones, Kirk's DIY-jazz noise, Mal's dubby-basslines and hypnotic electronic percussion with lyrics and titles that nodded to the zeitgeist (the Iran hostage crisis, the Khomeni Revolution, the rise of Reagan, the invasion of Afghanistan, the Cold War etc). It's an album that demands to be listened to completely, everything a highlight.
