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...

HOLY BONER @ MIUC - 25/03/2014


Expect nothing but aleatoric atrocities at MIUC this Tuesday as three scumcore groupings control sieges of sonic power to demonstrate the potential of extemporisation-as-Divine-Death and redefine the very concept of brutalissimo. First time make-it-uppers Pissbolt smash out of the prison-without-walls known as composed music to suffocate their kvlto thrash in a whirlwind of spontaneously unabated fury and flex their improv instincts of survival. Lo-fi parasites Peter Hyde, Chris Nylstoch and Sean Baxter (aka the heaviest new noisecore trio of 2013) grind past the point of no return in their sophomore blastfest sure to make Multinational Corporation-backed punks crap their dacks. And the polluted minds of Holy Boner inflict unquestionable suffering upon their anti-musical weaponry, with the common enemy of audial moderation well and truly within their auditory crosshairs.


•Pissbolt feat. S-Bolt (Roar), R-Bolt (Axe) & J-Bolt (Skins)

•Peter Hyde (Voice), Chris Nylstoch (Guitar) & Sean Baxter (Percussion)

•Holy Boner feat. Omad (Noisecore Vocals/Noise), Nik Kennedy (Modified Bass/Goregrind Vocals), Rod Cooper (Handmade Guitar/Noise) & Brad Smith (Drums/Grindcore Vocals)

Collab with Vijay Thillaimuthu @ MIUC - 25/02/2014

This installment of Make It Up Club is a selection of brutalissimo sound purveyors lurking across thresholds of various soundworlds in the electronic crud-smeared underbelly of Melbourne's DIY noise arena. With a unifying love of suffocating densities and sublime reverberant immersion, Vijay Thillaimuthu's high-ish electrowizardry aesthetic and Nik Kennedy's low-ish scumcore sonic strategy render such descriptive dichotomies utterly irrelevant. Wikipedia defines Nathan Gray as an artistic standard that describes a protocol, digital interface and connectors capable of manipulating a variety of electronic musical instruments, computers and other aleatoric sources into connecting and communicating with one another. And the post-grim powered electronics of Ciarán Geoghegan will be wilfully smashed into the robust industrial-strength ambience borne of Todd Anderson-Kunert's electric assemblage, in a supercollision of extreme frequencies. 


•Vijay Thillaimuthu (Electronics) & Nik Kennedy (Voice, Clarinet, Electronics)

Feeling very lucky and stoked to be playing at MIUC again, this time in collab with Vijay Thillaimuthu doin some modular synth conjurations and whatnot... I've got some cool new tricks, processing voice and clarinet (of doom). Rock n roll...
