Test Department

Last weekend we went to London. In Rough Trade in Brick Lane we rediscovered Test Department's soundscape "The Unacceptable Face of Freedom".

I saw them do an Anti Apartheid Benefit in Wolverhampton in February 1987. They could only do an afternoon gig. That it snowed and there was a demo in town protesting the police killing of Clinton McCurbin in Next meant there were only about 20 people who braved the demo and the weather to see the band. They had the brilliant Sarah-Jane Morris guesting on vocals. Still one of the best gigs I have ever been to.

Here's some Test Department, but not from The Unacceptable Face of Freedom.

Couldn't get the sound to work. If you get any sound do let me know.
