"Once Plank! began to play it was like a collage of cult movie dreams were being played out on stage as the Manchester based three-piece unraveled their unique brand of psychedelic, instrumental rock.

Drummer Johnny Winbolt-Lewis provided the most animation, as he sat well lit by the video wall seemingly the only one really enjoying himself."
