ASTRO - "GAS" LIVE CD-R.




Late last year I was lucky enough to catch an ear-blistering set by long-running noise lord Hiroshi Hasegawa at local watering hole The Gasometer. Hasegawa was a member of legendary group C.C.C.C. before adopting the Astro moniker and taking his path of sonic destruction into space. This close to forty-minute long set is one of the best examples of pure Noise I’ve ever had the chance to encounter. The show was no chinstroke seminar either; between the blasts of electronics, you can hear stoked shouts emanating from several members of Melbourne’s noise cognoscenti. 50 copies on sprayed CD-R’s, cover by Mark Groves.

REUNION SACRED IBIS - 2XLYF C20.



This here is a one-sided recycled tape with 20 minutes of live Reunion Sacred Ibis. The first set is from the Barkly St. backyard. Rain was dripping on my mixer, so I had to cut it short. The second is from Ovens St. Warehouse and sounds pretty fuk'n sweet really, not sure how that happened. I think it was the only time I've played that I haven't been high, go figure... 40 copies.

THE FUTURIANS - "SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" C21.




The Futurians are a punk band from New Zealand who deal in sci-fi influenced psychedelics. Some Assembly Required compiles five tracks previously released in very limited runs on lathes and CD-R's in the last few years. 50 copies on pro-dubbed tapes. Listen to one of the tracks here.

MARCH 12TH, SUNSHINE + GREASE.

Full Fucking Moon are psychedelic space cadets from NZ, feat. Torben Tilly of Minit/Garbage & The Flowers infame. Prehistoric Fuckin' Moron brings his mind-altering freakout to Melbourne from Sydney/another galaxy. Javier Frisco from Perth washes in with waves of drone. Reunion Sacred Ibis builds up a cacophony of sound with layers of Nintendo DS and tape piss. Mad Nanna crafts messy poppy with an ill-bent and a good heart.
