Original Test Dept members present: TEST DEPT:Redux @ BIMFEST 2012

With Test Dept:Redux headlining our first BIMFEST day (Friday, December 14th) we think the information below (taken from the official Test Dept website) might be very interesting to you!

Test Dept: Redux is conceived as a club based EBM (Electronic Body Music) intense music & visual performance experience.

Titled 'UFoF:v2' the performance is a live re-mix and re-imagining by the two founder members of Test Dept - Paul Jamrozy and Graham Cunnington – the tracks performed are taken from Test Dept's own sound and visual archive from their classic agitprop 1986 album ‘The Unacceptable Face of Freedom’* and earlier material.

Originally UFoF was an expression of the rage and frustration felt by a large section of society towards the brutal policies and consequences of the UK's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (1979>1990), which has now, once again, gained a powerful relevance to our current circumstances within the wider globalised economic and militaristic order in these recession hit times.

The performance reworks political themes for the new millennium and bringing up to date the methods and techniques that made Test Dept pioneers of a highly original and radical approach to music creation and found sound collage.

TD:R create a dense, powerful, vibrant soundtrack for our time, utilising sound and image samples from the extensive Test Dept back-catalogue; enhanced with new sounds, audio-visual documentation, and the duo's live vocals and percussion. Their channelling of the personal anger and frustration they still experience remains as potent and caustic as before.

Following the melt down of the West's banking infrastructure, and the revelation of the consequences of corporate greed and free-market 'shock therapy' tactics, it is an apt time to revisit the radicalism of Test Dept's dystopian vision of the future as laid out in the seminal album, The Unacceptable Face of Freedom.

* "The Unacceptable Face of Freedom", was the pejorative term used by Thatcher's Home Secretary Leon Britton during the 1984/5 miner's strike. The right of people to protect their jobs and futures was seen as a liberty too far by the right wing political establishment of the time.

ADAM ANT - Blueblack Hussar Tour 2012 @ Zappa - Antwerp - B

25 September 2012 08:14

Adam and the Ants started as part of the burgeoning punk rock movement. His debut as a recording artist was the song "Deutscher Girls", which featured on the film's soundtrack, along with "Plastic Surgery" which was performed in the film itself, and was re-released as a single in 1982. The band toured extensively around the UK, but proved to be unpopular with much of the British music press who disliked their fetishistic lyrics and imagery. Late 1979 saw the release of their début album Dirk Wears White Sox (1979).

Adam approached Malcolm McLaren (the manager of The Sex Pistols) and asked him to manage the band. McLaren subsequently stole the rest of the Ants from under Adam's feet when he introduced the singer Annabella Lwin and began the process of honing Bow Wow Wow for chart success. A new version of Adam and the Ants was formed and the band signed a major label deal with CBS Records and recorded Kings of the Wild Frontier during the summer of 1980. That album was an enormous hit in the United Kingdom and the "Antmania" that ensued put the band at the forefront of the New Romantic movement. The single "Antmusic" went to No. 2 on the U.K. singles chart by December 1980.

In November 1981, Adam & the Ants released another highly successful album, Prince Charming. The album featured two United Kingdom No. 1 singles — "Stand and Deliver" and the title track "Prince Charming" — as well as the No. 3 UK hit "Ant Rap". This trio of singles were promoted by some of the most lavish music videos of the period, and paved the way for Adam Ant's later acting career.

Since 2010 Adam Ant is back with extensive UK & US tours and many sold out shows.

Georgie Girl and her Poussez Posse will be the supporting band!
