Soft Cell - Non Stop Erotic Cabaret (Deluxe Edition Japan) (2010) Retail CD
With the minor chords and icy pioneering synth rifts of Dave Ball and the theatrical lyrics of Marc Almond: Soft Cell tapped into an underground subculture of voyeurism and sexual deviancy not previously explored in mainstream pop. Hacking away at the respectability of 1980s Britain with chain-saw welding dwarfs and kiss and tell call- girls Dave and Marc broke the rules of Tea-Time Top Of The Pops and sang about sex, corruption and vice in a frank confessional way that was a kick up the backside for fans of their surprise classic cover hit "Tainted Love" and the record company execs that wantedmore… to grow rich on the profits. The tabloids were furious- this lanky bangle wearing ---- from Leeds an his morose sidekick had much in common with 70s syth pioneers Sparks but took their lyrics in a much different direction. Course all this anger just made Soft Cell even more determined to get as far away from the restrictions of corporate content as possible. Non Stop Erotic Cabaret is brilliant. As a teenager in a small scottish town I loved it. Tracks like Seedy Film and Secret Life I was way out of my depth, I couldn't vouch for their authenticity but Memorabilia and Tainted love were camp whilst Sex Dwarf complete with whip sound effects seemed really enjoyable and a fun way to spend an afternoon. When you're a teenager you think everything is for or about you. NSEC spoke to my supposed uniqueness and need to be different but not alone. I wonder how much of the music we enjoy as teenagers still registers with us as adults. I never thought I'd end up in a drug fuelled vice den the concubine of a married man with a fancy for chain-saws but Dave and Marc had done their research so well I didn't have to! The Deluxe addition fills in the gaps : the sleaze of seaside towns, the tarnish of bright lights viewed through streaming mascara, its all fairly harmless stuff by todays standards. Im not sure where or when you would listen to it now but its worth treasuring none the less!!!
