The veteran dark industrial music group, Attrition, which was formed in late 1980, reunited in its original line-up in 2022. The band played festivals and shows in the UK, while also preparing for performances in Europe and the USA to promote their latest album, “The Black Maria”.

In anticipation of the forthcoming tour, the band conducted rehearsals in February 2023. In a very nice surprise for their fans, these sessions were recorded in multitrack and professionally mixed by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios.

This compilation is now released as a limited edition CD album titled “Live in the Cage. 07.02.23”, featuring what the band refers to as ‘interpretations’ of songs from their three-decade-long journey. The ensemble for these sessions included Martin Bowes, Ashley Niblock, Simon Stansfield, and Julia Waller.

A special limited signed edition of this live album is also available, with only 100 copies produced. Each CD comes in a card wallet with cover photographs taken by Antony Weir.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
