Test Dept. and Brith Gof ‎– Gododdin (LTD 12″)

tested

Going off on a limb here with this bit of experimental /industrial from 1988. Almost a “Game Of Thrones” atmosphere to this via Tolkien with a mix of Welsh and English voices over a treated orchestrated backing. This was a collaboration between the pioneering industrial band and Welsh avant-garde theatre company Brith Gof. A show they performed in Wales, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Scotland, was a dramatisation of the annihilation of a small Celtic army by the invading Angle’s at Catraeth in 600 A.D. It premiered at the abandoned Rover car factory in Cardiff, transformed using 600 tons of sand, 50 trees, 30 wrecked cars and a set that flooded as the performance progressed. Brith Gof provided music and voice, accompanying their movement, while TD provided a blend of percussion and bagpipes enhanced with physical performance.

I’m very intrigued and will check out the album, I’m sure Mike was puzzled when he ripped this!
