Just before Christmas, Sci Fi Steven (of bis fame) brought his electro punk project Batteries to Glasgow’s King Tuts Wah Wah Hut.

From the group’s matching outfits, and jagged style, it is easy to understand why they’ve been compared to Devo covering Queens of the Stone Age songs. An angry, and yet melodically conscious beast, Batteries explore contrasting ideas about alienation and communication. This is exemplified in how their songs are simultaneously human and robotic.

Steven Mair was there to catch the chaos.
