Formed in New Cross in 1981 Test Dept are one of the earliest and most influential early industrial bands.

In 40 years (with a 15 year hiatus) they have worked across music & theatre, from industrial to techno. Always engaging politically including a famous collaboration with the Wales Striking Miners Choir. They return to New Cross as part of the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022.

Support comes from Blurt, long time Deptford resident Ted Milton. A heavy mix of punk, jazz and spoken word from the unique performer.

Please note this show has been postponed from 6 May to 29 October 2022. A message from the group:

“Due to a family tragedy within the group it is with very much regret and a deep sadness that we have to announce the postponement of the Test Dept London show which was due to be presented at the Albany on 6 May 2022. We are looking to present a new project to our London audience at the same venue later in the year. We hope that our audience can understand this unprecedented move and ask that you bear with us during this difficult period” – TD
