What the f***? It's Mathew Glamore (formerly of kitsch punky popsters Minty)'s Harder Faster Louder club night, declared 'evil' by the Daily Star. So they must be doing something right. Some fetish-y freaks are shimmying around, dancing to Miss Pink's darkcore drum'n'bass, but then...what the f***? To simply say that 2nd Gen are 'full-on' is a bit of an understatement. These three Tai Chi warriors stripped to the waist begin throwing some extraordinarily fierce shapes to the industrio-jungle of 'Against Nature', and generally start making the Prodigy look like Belle & Sebastian. Basically, it's about time somebody started seriously f***ing with electronica again, and 2nd Gen extreme noise terror is just the cathartic shakeout we've been looking for. This isn't a gig, it's more of a blood-letting, where the excruciating straight jacket funk of Complacent Certainty has beats tumbling over each other as if in a psychotic cement mixer, while the one who's a boxer in real like bellows, 'F*** em' into a mic about 1000 times. These butchering Buddhists, this insane posse hurtle around the stage going kamakaze with their karma. They're nihilistic ninjas acting out Nagasaki nightmares, and they're the f***ing bomb. (Carl Loben - Melody Maker)
