F*** Buttons: The Barbican, London
Stephen Dalton, The Times, 28 April 2014
FEW BANDS can combine punishing volume, discordant drones and blood-curdling screams quite so joyously as F*** Buttons. Andrew Hung and Benjamin Power, the main attraction at this one-off event celebrating ten years of the online electronic music retailer Bleep, blasted the capacity crowd with a sustained sensory assault. And yet the cumulative effect was hugely uplifting, slowly transforming this normally sedate all-seater concert hall into a kind of avant-garde rave full of bouncing bodies and beaming euphoria.
