Consumer Electronics return to the UK for a rare visit and welcome return to Cafe Oto.
The extra PA has been hired and earplugs ordered in.
The classic three-piece lineup of Russell Haswell, Philip Best and Sarah Froelich will be blasting their coruscating mix of piledriving beats, performance poetry and confrontational electronic music. Including live debuts for tracks from the new CE state-of-the-nation album ‘Airless Space’ (Harbinger Sound).
Quietus said: this is no easy ride, but if you follow Consumer Electronics as they strip bare the caustic facade of modern living, you will find power and, yes, beauty in the dark recesses they reveal.
Louder Than War said: a glorious collision of punk, electro and techno noise ... the chaotic soundtrack to a country that feels equally as spinning and weird

It originally existed in the 1980s as an electronic project and was revived in 2009 as an outlet for Gary’s solo electronic/noise/organ/guitar compositions. Kleistwahr's latest album "Down but Defiant Yet" was released on Fourth Dimension Records at the end of last year. A new album "Acceptance Is Not Respect" is due later this year.
