Disturbance marks the return of British industrial pioneers Test Dept., who formed in the early '80s and were known for their usage of found percussion, often salvaged from scrap yards, as well as their elaborate multimedia events staged at site-specific locations. When last heard from in the late '90s, they had embraced techno and drum'n'bass, and their sound was much more in line with that of free party sound system Spiral Tribe than Einstürzende Neubauten. With the right-wing ideals of the '80s dangerously returning to the forefront during the 2010s, the group felt it was necessary to reactivate.
