SPASMOSLOP @ Make It Up Club - 02/08/2016

This Tuesday at MIUC is a torrential onslaught of scaturient sonics, as three solo cacophonists dredge through the atramentously anarchistic realm of astringent dissonance to adjure and agitate perceptible frequential extents into audibly delectable textural densities. 

Spasmoslop spews forth the genus of genius only attainable via the persistent auricular ingestion of sublimated brutalities, augmented with anodic accretions and the requisite gargling of glass, for the umpteenth consecutive year conjuring the consummatest in electro-oral noise. 


Bleach Boys summons corrupted quixoticisms from the thresholds of the analogue apocalypse, sparking shimmering sensatory paroxysms from antediluvian playback apparatuses and excavating sublimely stygian resonances dripping in serene restlessness. 


And Scumwitch conveys ceremonially cathartic caterwauls of cut-n-waste chaos cobbled from deafening detrital dystopia, shredding oscillatory spectra into clamorous turbulences that ruthlessly cleave through speaker cones and cerebella alike. 


• Spasmoslop aka Nik Kennedy (Electro-Oral Noise) 


• Bleach Boys aka Maya Victoria Kjellstrand(Tapes, Electronics) 


• Scumwitch aka Romy Seven (Electronics) 


The Make It Up Club

First time playing solo at MIUC in years, really really really looking forward to it!!

YENDO BRUUC @ Hotsh*ts - 30/07/2016

Fundraiser for FLOWERGRAVE COLLECTIVE PHILIPPINES
Heaps more info about them and the gig here - https://www.facebook.com/events/1741178252836452/

-------------------

Looking forward to our first official gig with YENDO BRUUC!! We're on first at 4:00pm.
YENDO BRUUC is Yendo (AKA Rod Cooper) on yet-unnamed noise instrument & snare-ified vocals, and Bruuc (AKA Spasmoslop) on Mr. Putin noisebass & broken-speaker vocals. It's kinda halfway between noisecore and harsh noise... no drums, just tight, dense blasts of harshness and some mechanical/industrial vibes... it's odd but we think it works!
Cheers to Nathan for putting us on and Hotsh*ts & friends for hosting and continually supporting good causes!!

UMBILICAL TENTACLE surfin' with GRANPA

June 6th @ Northcote Social Club
Monday Night Mass - FREE

- Rice Corpse (Lucas Abela/Maria Moles/James Bowers)
- Umbilical Tentacle (partygrindharshsurfmoshnoisecoremania)
- Angus Leslie & Cosima Jaala (first-time face-off of epic bratcore proportions)

In a Melbournian first Lucas 'Granpa' Abela kicks off three days of tinnitus-drenced madness with his angular noiserock improv unit Rice Corpse adeptly assisted by local shredders Maria Moles - the percussive prowess behind Jaala and Titanic Jamz - and James Bowers - the vocoder (and keyboards or whatever) behind Sex On Toast, Au Dré and far too many others. To welcome the cacophonous royalty we've laid out our finest silly sonic silverware with absurdist aristocrats Umbilical Tentacle reppin' the everythingcore brutality, and turn up the musical and performative intensities by clashing two of the most charismatic frontpeople in town - Angus Leslie and Cosima Jaala. Eep.

Cheers to Lloyd Honeybrook for organising!!

WANKOSLOP Japan line-up!... we leave mid-April...  over the last month or two I've been working with Rod Cooper to make a travel-size subsonic noisebass for me to take on the tour and it turned out absolutely amazing. Two bass strings and three springs, stainless steel neck, Fijian Mahogany body... Rod & I developed the design together and he did the construction and science cause he's a fuggin GENIUS... this thing sounds utterly MASSIVE... but is also really versatile and does subtle ambient stuff very well too! Thank you Rodney!!

UMBILICAL TENTACLE @ The Tote - 07/04/2016

Increased tremblings measured of late by the Seismologists of Eastern Australia are no mistake. There is indeed a significant event approaching:
DEAD and MoE are touring together. It’s the double bill you need n your life. You have been warned.
And yes that is THE MoE from Norway; legendary noise rock/avant garde DIY stalwarts.
Two relentlessly active and uncompromising bands; it’s a pissing contest of low end, high output and DIY cred. Remember that time John Farnham sold out 17 concerts at the Tennis Centre? This will be nothing like that.


First show of the tour. For full dates go here:

UMBILICAL TENTACLE live @ Yarraville video



Cheers to Wayne from COLOSTOMY BAGUETTE? for this one!

'STILL AGITATED' - 13/02/2016


'Still Agitated' is a conceptual improvisation by Todd Anderson-Kunert, requiring five drummers and five noiseicians to surround the edges of the room, and follow simple visual and audible directives as they spread from one performer to the next. 


Drummers:
Joe Talia
Nat Grant
Llara Goodall
Leo Kavanagh
Michael McNab

Noisicians:
Todd Anderson-Kunert
Ciarán Geoghegan
Carey Knight
Mark Groves
Spasmoslop

Evening also includes supporting sets from:
Xenosine
The Vainglories

$10 Entry.

NOTE: I'm not entirely sure how much room is left in Conduit Arts Initiative after we fill it with five drum kits and five amplifiers / noise rigs, but the venue was chosen for its potential intimacy and intensity.


-------------------------------------


Thanks Todd AK and Conduit! This should be real cool... it's kinda like a human feedback loop laser beam going around until we melt the floor. Some really sick players in this and I'm thrilled to be laser beaming with them.. and the only idiot using a performing name!
