Happy Birthday Cabaret Voltaire

100 years ago, a motley group of international poets, artists, philosophers and scientists found themselves living in Zurich, sheltering from the madness of WW1. And 100 years ago today one of them, the poet Hugo Ball, opened the Cabaret Voltaire on 1 Spiegelgasse - a club for artistic and political soirees which inspired a whole new art movement, Dada, and also gave the name to one of my favourite groups. 
Happy centenary Cabaret Voltaire.
