Venue: The Deaf Institute, Manchester
Vennart lets rip before going back to the day job
Cleft’s set is rendered more remarkable due to the news that they will be disbanding after releasing and touring their second album in 2016. The turbo-prog duo have been Prog favourites since their early days, and they’ll be missed. Tonight, however, it’s all smiles and exuberant riffs, backed by a medley of warped sounds and time signatures as the pair blast though older material, as well as some new tracks. From the evidence here, the farewell album’s going to be one hell of a parting gift.
