Get into This reviews Gnoomes live in Liverpool

They say:

...Gnoomes. Yeah! They start off doing their best Good Cop, Bad Cop routine. It’s all quite measured and synthy at first. Quite subtle. Until the manic drums kick in and the guitar gets annoyed.

This will be some ride.

There’s so much reverb on the vocals and echo on the guitar that it’s difficult to tell which band member is making which noise. Not that it matters, because this is a glorious meld of noise and rhythm. They are equally happy playing 4-minute numbers from MU! as they are grinding out 10-minute behemoths from earlier albums.
