"Legendary Electronic Pioneers Cabaret Voltaire re-enter the fray with a new
single and album on Shiva Records. The album, "National Service Rewind",
represents a collaboration between Cabaret Voltaire and new Sheffield rock
band The Tivoli recorded at CV's legendary Western Works studios.

“National Service Rewind” is a sonic juggernaut that cleaves all conception
of dance rock crossover and dives deep into the jugular to spit blood, bone
and baritone. There are no niceties here, no musical politesse, just a new
clear war of electronic attrition, psychotic, psychedelic rock and
tower-block rocking beats peppered by juddering, Jamaican Dancehall bass.

“Swaggering electro rock with a dash of dub, "National Service Rewind"
sounds less like Richard H Kirk's Sheffield post punkers Cabaret Voltaire,
and more like Kasabian trapped in a lift with Primal Scream” - DJ Magazine

"The opening Amsterdam Sam is a well-chosen single, encapsulating all of
National Service Rewind’s best facets: a darkly Unkle-like atmosphere,
dub-thud beats and a building bombardment." The Skinny
