The Mekano Set, smoke machines and carnage.

Have I written about The Mekano Set yet? They're from Brighton and used to feature the vocal talents of Blindness front women Beth who I wrote about back in June.
Now a three piece they take an industrial rock sounding shoegaze for a ride through a world of phazing guitar and driving beats, Depeche Mode vocals and slick electronic walls of sound.

The first track featured here is a new one and heads into heavier dancier territory while the second is more their usual sound.

Last time I saw them live the soundsystem in the venue wasn't working properly and as a result the band got pissed off, turned the smoke machine on full blast until you literally could not see your hand in front of your face and howled their guitars before stopping and leaving after one song! Brilliant!

Get there stuff from iTunes here.
