Cabaret Voltaire released their last official album "The Conversation" in 1994, revolutionizing electronic music since the late seventies. House, EBM Techno - without them these genres might not exist. In 1983 the formation around Richard H. Kirk produced the Peter Care film "Johnny YesNo" on their own video label Double Vision and provided the soundtrack for it. Almost thirty years later there is now a new edition of both. Newly remixed by Richard H. Kirk himself, "Johnny YesNo" unites the Cabaret Voltaire of past and present. Thanks to different arrangements of single songs "Johnny YesNo Redux" became a double album. With him, the developments that Kirk has taken under his own name and, above all, with his side projects Sandoz and Electronic Eye, can be best understood. Although the sound of the new production is at the highest level, the hallucinogenic aura of the original still penetrates.
