Beginning as a Dada-inspired performance art group in 1973, Cabaret Voltaire went on to become one of the UK’s most influential industrial bands.

Methodology ‘74-’78 follows the reissue of their 1979 soundtrack, Chance Versus Causality, and is pressed on clear vinyl in a limited edition run of 500 copies.
