Test Dept emerged in the 1980s as one of the most influential early industrial music acts. Marking 30 years since the 1984–5 miners’ strike, they present DS30, a political collage of sound and image featuring footage from mining communities and Test Dept’s own archive. This is followed by a Q&A with group members. Curated by AV Festival and presented by the Bluecoat in partnership with Liverpool Radical Film Festival. www.testdeptds30.co.uk
Join Test Dept DJs in the bar at 8.30pm to celebrate the Liverpool launch of Total State Machine, a major historical document of Test Dept (pub. PC–Press). Free, booking recommended.
