Better the duo you know

No sooner had I reviewed Cassels' second LP The Perfect Ending than the opportunity presented itself to experience it performed in the flesh. The Beck brothers have come a long way in the four years since I first saw them at Nightshift's much-missed annual showcase the Punt - not least in terms of packing the sort of serious clout needed to ensure that a co-headline tour with Bristol bruisers The St Pierre Snake Invasion wasn't a mismatch. Thankfully, as their set at Clwb on Wednesday night demonstrated, this hasn't come at the expense of the wilful disregard for conventional structure that made them such a striking and exciting prospect back in those early days.
