Sonically the band were in excellent form, sounding huge in the small venue, the mix worked and the sort of overblown distortion in places was made up the sheer presence of the rhythm section. When Aniruddha Das bass and Brian Fairbairn drums lock in its overpowering and captures the heavy dub vibe that many name check but few can reproduce. The result is something exceedingly rare a musical experience that has a depth of righteous integrity that eclipses the hype of an admittedly rapturously hyped band.
