                Review of Graham Cunnington/Paul Jamrozy (of Test Dept) & Gnod & Mutate

                Overall rating: 4 Verified review

                I arrived late, missed Mutate and the first ten minutes of Gnod. I had not seen Gnod before but enjoyed their heavy industrial drone with experimental sounds at the front of the stage. It was only recently that I became aware that Test Dept were still performing and I was intrigued to see them again. I went to their stunning performances in both Cardiff and Glasgow many years ago. Now minus the metal bashing the heavy electronic beat is still very familiar and instantly recognisable as the band I saw all those years ago. Accompanied by a video backdrop this performance was immensely enjoyable and I will certainly look to see them again when I can.
