A shot of punk ethic, chuck in a substantial measure of odd pop glamour, a sprinkling of bleeping electronics and shake vigorously in the style of the late great Fad Gadget, and the resulting saucy cocktail is called Mechanical Cabaret.
From the neon-lit, decadent heart of London, with a razor sharp wit and sound to match, these British electropunks produce a compelling brand of bruised and abused emotional, yet defiantly energetic electronic music.
They combine dark, sleazy electronics with an edgy, discopunk feel; their obtuse, intense melodies scatter, tease and probe your psyche, constructed from spiky, brooding synthetic sounds. Sampled noise, quasi-industrial synthpop rhythms, and throbbing, driving bass lines are all topped off by lyrical cynical observations of life, delivered with a deadpan dose of sardonic attitude and scathingly British black humour.
Formed from the ashes of Nekromantik, who performed at the very first Infest back in 1998, we are very pleased to host Mechanical Cabaret at the very latest Infest 2015!
