Cabaret Voltaire - Micro-Phonies album
Micro-Phonies is the sixth full-length studio album by British electronic band Cabaret Voltaire. Released in November 1984, the album was the group's most mainstream hit to date, with the singles "Sensoria" and "James Brown" gaining popularity, especially the former, due to the music video finding MTV airplay. The album sees Cabaret Voltaire continuing to change, pursuing the more synthpop-oriented direction they had started shifting towards on The Crackdown.

Producer – Cabaret Voltaire, Flood (tracks: 1 to 9), John 'Tokes' Potoker (tracks: 10, 11). Notes. Regarding breaking into the mainstream, a subway poster for Micro-phonies is in "Ferris Beuler's Day Off" (John Hughes film, 1986) in Ferris' bedroom. I don't recall any Cabaret Voltaire music on the soundtrack, but the simple fact they were viewed as hip and cool enough to be a prop at that point while not having any mainstream visibility in the US I thought was interesting. Or, did Virgin simply pay to place it there? Then again, it seems it would have been The Covenant, The Sword, The Arm Of The Lord instead.
