Let's be reasonable

August is a busy month for House of Targ's Switched On Synths; tonight Steve Summers and Violence, Auto Melodi and Prison play the pinball palace; last week I caught 18=980s stars Rational Youth, returning Icelanders Dada Pogrom and Error 144. First, Error 14, who also performs with Dada Pogrom, and uses the same monkish grab.

And so oN!

Well, you get the idea!

Dada Pogrom brought some more tech noir to the stage.

More monkish action!

Hooded action!

Last time I saw Rational Youth at Zaphod's, there was a pretty full roster and a focus on their classic recordings; since then  the band has shrunk to a core of founding vocalist Tracy Howe and his wife Gaenor and gone back into the studio, for a new EP, Future Past Tense.

Gaenor sings!

Very solid.
