The Dome, Tufnell Park, London

Detroit has never sounded so gloomy.

Post-punkers Protomartyr treated London to two back-to-back shows last week in support of the quartets’ latest LP Relatives In Descent. Live, it’s really frontman Joe Casey’s show. Pacing back and forth, a beer in hand with spares in each pocket, his deadpan sermonising on-record escalates into straight-backed, blank,eyed, rapturous anger. It’s easy to read this twist of emotions on his face in the photoset below.
