Regarded as pioneers for their fusion of samples and loops with live guitars in the early nineties, Pop Will Eat Itself returned to Perth for the first time since 2018 to take those brave enough to venture out on a school night down memory lane and back to halcyon days of indie discos and the like.

England's finest genre-blenders Pop Will Eat Itself (aka PWEI aka Poppies aka 80's grebos) have returned. The last time I saw them I was still at Uni.
