Liner Notes: Doublevision was a communication company founded by Cabaret Voltaire and Paul Smith in 1982 initially as a vehicle for this programme, and also with a view to releasing affordable music based video (video releases were generally between 40 and 70 pounds back then) for around 15 pounds. Material released by Throbbing Gristle, Derek Jarman, The Residents, Einsturzende Neubauten, Chris and Cosey (cti), 23 Skidoo, Tuxedomoon and many others,. To help finance / and compliment the video releases, records by Cabaret Voltaire, Chakk, Lydia Lunch, Arto Lindsay, Clock dva, The Hafler Trio, Eric Random helped to turn it also into a forward thinking record label which organised various audio visual events and club nights around England. The label continued throughout most of the 80s and left behind an interesting legacy of experimental visual arts and music.
