Time for Belfast to go prop­erly Al­loy Men­tal as they launch their de­but album, We Have Con­trol. All three Men­talers had form be­fore com­ing to­gether to pro­duce meaty and beaty techno-punk. Phil Kieran has long been recog­nised as one of North­ern Ire­land’s lead­ing DJs, pro­duc­ers and remix­ers, while both Martin Cor­ri­gan and Danny Saul had worked to­gether on indie band Cor­ri­gan. Since their first sin­gle, Al­loy Men­tal (what else?), the trio’s brand of steamy techno and sneer­ing rock has found favour with a wide se­lec­tion of club and ra­dio DJs. Live gigs have been a lit­tle thin on the ground, which is some­thing they in­tend to change now that the album is fin­ished. Tonight will also see a rare Belfast spin from David Holmes, plus Glas­gow party beasts the Op­timo DJs (JD Twitch and JG Wilkes) will also be hang­ing loose.
