Working through a blown guitar amp, Toronto heroes DD/MM/YYYY (pronounced "Day Month Year") blasted through a set of frenetic tracks that at times recalled UK jungle (two drummers pounding out furious beats simultaneously) and 8-bit chip tunes (keyboard noises). In a way, it's like a prog rock version of the early Hot Hot Heat seven-inches. If it all sounds like a bit much to take, at times, it is. But the sheer enthusiasm with which the Toronto five-piece plays is enough to win over sceptics and the sheer originality of the band ensure that their set will not be soon forgotten.
