UMBILICAL TENTACLE & CLOGGED videos & news

















Thanks to Brad & Brendan/Kingbean for recording and uploading these. Cool to see footage from the UxTx gig at Footscray Park as it's a rare occasion where I didn't play synth and we get to see Brad with his undies on his head. Rock'n'roll baby.
Next up for UxTx - very excited that we're recording soon for a split 7" with legendary Japanese noisecore band and our own personal heroes, FINAL EXIT!!! And we're playing this gig:


https://www.facebook.com/events/1375681716064479/ - thanks to SHITWANK for organising!

As for CLOGGED - we recently recorded 14 tracks in my studio with techno/electronica producer Juxtpose for our debut EP or whatever it is. Definitely not techno... Mr. Juxtpose is using his skills to help us create a raw, nasty, noisy goregrind recording... of course! It's sounding great so far. We'll put some samples online soon... probably...

SETE STAR SEPT + SPASMOSLOP video



Been real slack with the blog for a while... so here's a fun video of a collab I did with SETE STAR SEPT when they toured in 2013... this is almost the full set - the shortest set I've ever played.
Mega cheers as always to Brendan/Kingbean for filming and uploading!

The Drunken Boat is Dale Chapman and Tim Panaretos playing an assortment of instruments and electronic devices, some of them handmade. The sounds they make wander about (not aimlessly) on a continuum from spacey ethno-drone ambience to shit-core rock n' roll minimalism to spastic noise cacophony and not always back again.

THE KILL Euro tour

THE KILL just got back from an amazing tour of central/western Europe where we played OBSCENE EXTREME and PLAY FAST OR DON'T fests in Czech Republic, plus a bunch of bloody excellent smaller shows in Czech, Poland, Slovakia, Germany, Netherlands & France... including 4 shows with one of my absolute favourite bands of all time - FINAL EXIT from Japan... great blokes and totally ball-tearing on stage, yowser! Cheers dudes!

I was amazed with the strength and passion of the scenes in Europe. All the shows went well, with good turnouts and cool, fun people who love the grindcore! A dream come true! I'd heard people say that we here in Australia could learn a lot from the way Europe does things, and I must agree!
Extremely humongous thanks to Curby/Obscene Extreme and Otto/PFOD for driving us around in their vans, organising stuff, helping us, and answering our endless barrages of stupid uncultured-Aussie questions! Extremely humongous thanks also to everyone who was involved - all the bands we played with, friends/bands/bookers/promoters who organised things for us/lent us gear/showed us around/fed us great food & hooked us up with places to sleep, labels who helped with records & merch, my band-mates Jay & Roby for being brutal dudes, and of course all the grind-lovers who came to watch us play!! FUCKIN' CHEERS MATE!!!!!
I took lots of notes and will start working on a more detailed tour diary soon, to be published in a (web?)zine of some sort in the future for anyone bored enough to wanna read my in-depth analyses of European coffee and pastries heheh

Meanwhile, here we are playing OEF and the crazy OEF afterparty, yeeeeeha:

VISCERAL OFFERING photos


WANKOSLOP recently collaborated with artist Adam Wojcinski at a small nightclub in Chapel St (?!) to a crowd of somewhat unsuspecting folks who had just prior been groovin' out watching a Japanese hip-hop group play.
Thanks to Adam for organising things! No sound recording unfortunately but click below to see some nifty photos by Nayuto Adachi and check out the other stuff that Adam does...

And buy a copy of Internal Rot's album cause it's an absolute world-class masterpiece of tear-your-face-off hyper-grindcore!!
