black midi have been a clandestine live sensation for a few years before finally breaking out as one of those seeing-is-believing type of acts. Like a glitch in the system that defies all logic of what a band could be – drawing comparisons as wide as Beefheart meets Death Grips meets Parquet Courts – this London bunch shows us a glimpse of the future. Their shows toss the rulebook into the shredder, self-destruct and reassemble with almost mathematical virtuosity, leaving audiences completely aghast. Geordie Greep has the name to match his strangely fascinating, highly eccentric stage antics, – once described as “Mark E. Smith if he were a Bond villain”. Whether you’re bewildered or repelled by these chaos agents, with black midi it’s always impossible to look away.
