Conduct (2016)

Winnipeg, MB

Executing atonal, tension-building post-punk with militant precision, Conduct’s outsider energy stands in good company among ally Steve Albini’s impressive canon. Their rewarding live shows are a feast of expression, utilizing torrents of serrated guitar, bass and drums, and the occasional hammer put to sheet metal amid frontman Nicholas Liang’s mechanical, anxiety-inducing stare. This is where the industrialist spirit of Einstürzende Neubauten meets Big Black’s showering din.
