Soft Cell share exclusive clip from Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret… And Other Stories: Live
By Classic Pop | April 24, 2023
Soft Cell are to release Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret… And Other Stories: Live album and film on 12 May via LiveHereNow, and Classic Pop is proud to present an an exclusive clip from the video.
Watch their performance of Monoculture, from the pair’s 2002 album Cruelty Without Beauty below.
“It was incredible performing the whole of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret live at the end of 2021, and fortunately happening when we were nearing the end of the pandemic,” Dave Ball tells Classic Pop. “It was especially gratifying to hear the audience reaction to the album tracks like Chips On My Shoulder and Seedy Films, songs we had not played live since 1981 yet went down as well as the big singles. We will be adding some of these album tracks again to our future sets as they are really fun to play.”
Released on double and quadruple vinyl, double CD, DVD and Blu-ray on the 12th May via LiveHereNow, the show was filmed in November 2021 at one of Soft Cell’s two sellout concerts at London’s Hammersmith Apollo celebrating the 40th anniversary of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret.
As well as the seminal 1981 debut album performed in full for the very first time, the collection also includes the band’s chart hits alongside tracks from across Soft Cell’s career that have never been performed before live, plus songs from the electronic duo’s current album.
Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret… And Other Stories: Live is available to pre-order now on the following formats, as well as some strictly-limited super-collectable special editions still to be announced:
