Stephen Mallinder

Idioma disponible: inglés
Best known as a founding member of industrial pioneers Cabaret Voltaire, British musician, vocalist, journalist, and educator Stephen Mallinder has participated in over a dozen other projects during his multi-decade career, spanning genres such as post-punk, acid house, and electro. Cabaret Voltaire formed in 1973, and Mallinder added a punk edge to the group's visionary electronic experiments as their vocalist and bass guitarist. He released his debut solo album, Pow-Wow, in 1982, as Cabaret Voltaire shifted to a more commercial dance sound, scoring several club hits. Mallinder participated in one-off projects with members of Ministry and Soft Cell near the end of the decade, before his main group shifted to an instrumental techno/house sound during the early '90s. After quitting CV, Mallinder launched his own label, OffWorld Sounds, and formed groups with Shaun Ryder (Amateur Night in the Big Top) and Fila Brazillia's Steve Cobby (Hey, Rube!), among others. Wrangler, an analog electro trio featuring Ben Edwards (Benge) and Phill Winter (Tunng), released their first album in 2014, and the trio later formed Creep Show with John Grant. Mallinder continued mixing post-punk and acid house on his solo efforts Um Dada (2019) and Tick Tick Tick (2022). The Sheffield native formed Cabaret Voltaire with Richard H. Kirk and Chris Watson in 1973, contributing bass and oft-distorted vocals to the group's mix of noisy tape loops and electronic oscillations. Their confrontational early performances, sometimes on the same bill as Joy Division, were known to end with the band brawling with the audience, and Mallinder ended up hospitalized on more than one occasion. CV signed to Rough Trade in 1978, and their singles and albums regularly hit the U.K. indie charts; landmark 1981 full-length Red Mecca and the next year's 2x45 both reached number one. Mallinder's debut solo single, "Temperature Drop," appeared on Fetish Records in 1981, with full-length Pow-Wow arriving the following year. CV signed to Some Bizzare in 1983 and negotiated a licensing deal with Virgin, allowing them to record in London and produce more-accessible music. The Crackdown released into the Top 40 of the U.K. album chart, and the band scored several charting dance singles, eventually landing on Parlophone and releasing Code, co-produced by Adrian Sherwood, in 1987. House music exploded in the U.K. in 1988, and Mallinder formed the group Love Street with Dave Ball (Soft Cell), Robert Gordon (Forgemasters, co-founder of Warp), and vocalist Ruth Joy, releasing the dance single "Galaxy." CV also collaborated with Ministry under the name Acid Horse, releasing the single "No Name, No Slogan" on Wax Trax! in 1989. CV's next album, 1990's Groovy, Laidback and Nasty, was recorded in Chicago with house pioneer Marshall Jefferson and additionally featured guest vocals by Ten City. After Parlophone dropped CV, 1991's Body and Soul (on Les Disques Du Crépuscule) was the band's last album to feature Mallinder's vocals, as they shifted to an instrumental ambient techno sound for three albums before disbanding in 1994. Mallinder relocated to Perth, Australia and pursued an academic career while launching a label called OffWorld Sounds. He formed Sassi & Loco with Yummy Fur's Travis Calley, and Ku-Ling Brothers with Shane Norton (Soundlab), and collaborated with Norton and Shawn Ryder (Happy Mondays, Black Grape) as Amateur Night in the Big Top, who produced a self-titled album in 2003. Mallinder delivered several keynote addresses on music and technology and earned his Ph.D. in music and popular culture from Murdoch University in 2011. Remaining active as both a writer and a musician, he released albums with Fila Brazillia's Steve Cobby (as Hey, Rube!) and Hula's Ron Wright (as Kula). Additionally, he guested on remakes of Cabaret Voltaire tracks by Billie Ray Martin, Dub Mentor, and 3kStatic. Mallinder formed the analog synth group Wrangler with Ben Edwards and Phill Winter, debuting with a 2008 split single with Scanner and issuing the first of several full-lengths, LA Spark, in 2014. The trio also collaborated with John Grant as Creep Show, releasing Mr. Dynamite in 2018. Mallinder appeared on "Lake," a single with Dub Mentor and Anna Domino, in 2019. That year, Mallinder signed to Dais Records and released his first solo album in 37 years, Um Dada. Clinker, a collaboration with Julie Campbell (LoneLady) and Benge, appeared on Les Disques Du Crépuscule in 2021. Mallinder's third solo album, Tick Tick Tick, appeared in 2022, mixing lo-fi techno and no wave punk-funk.
