Live review: Errors at Norwich Sound and Vision
Errors, Friday, October 12, The Waterfront, Norwich
As we entered towards the end of Dam Mantle ambient electronics, a really good atmosphere was building in the space. Errors took to the stage at around midnight with a set drawing from their three albums and new mini-album New Relics. The stage was overflowing with digital equipment and with their new release coming out on VHS it is fair to say that a certain geekiness flavoured the air.
Errors strength is merging the dark mood of fellow Scots Mogwai with clean, catchy melodies and from opener Magna Encarta their sound builds and builds, bursting through sparkly New Order-esque loops and hoops.
It was personally great to hear stuff from their recent Have Some Faith In Magic album and despite losing a member since the last time I saw them, tracks like Magna Encarta and Tusk sound impressive live.
The band seem comfortable on stage and 'frontman' Stephen Livingstone seems to chat more between songs than I previously remember, and Errors really feel like a strong, accomplished unit.

With the crystal-clear, hypnotic synths of the band filling the room the crowd danced their way through A Rumour in Africa and fan favourite Mr Milk before a buoyant Holus Bolus. A great end to the night.
