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.

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...

HOLY BONER @ Holdings - 16/02/2014

Come see people yelling over other loud noises!

Cantankerous Records Presents This:

Dead Boomers: Launching their new 7" vinyl out on Iron Lung Records and their new cassette "Outcalls" out on Cipher productions.
Punshing power electronics with a punk tinge...

SPLIT TEETH:Lightning speed power violence; 100% brutal.

Holy Boner: All star noise/grind lineup for maximum brutalitiy.

Velvet Whip: Self doubt, intelligence, paranoia, urban problems, claustrophobia, ugliness, animosity, and power.

Inmost Night: Punkened black metal to open your mind!

Live at Holdings
492 Bell Street Pascoe Vale South
3pm Sunday 16th February 2014
All Ages.
Free tea & coffee.

Plenty of merch available; bring your hard earned bread and squander it on some dated formats...

"If you are coming by car there is no parking on Bell Street, but you should be able to find some in York Street which is just around the corner. The last stop on the 55 tram at Bell Street will get you nearby. Holdings is about a 5 block walk west from there. If you can get to Bell or Coburg Station the 513 bus will take you pretty much across the road. Just ask to get off before Reynolds Parade. Holdings is across the road from a 7-Eleven (which is on the corner of Reynolds & Bell) if you need a landmark."


VERY EXCITED for this - our first gig with the new HOLY BONER line-up...  

Brad Smith - Drums/grindcore vocals
Nik Kennedy - Modified bass/goregrind vocals
Rod Cooper - Handmade guitar/noise
Omad - Noisecore vocals/noise

We've been jamming and doing some recordings (coming soon)... and I reckon with Rod's demented guitar and Omad's harsh Arse Destroyer-ish vocals added to the me & Brad "rhythm section" it's sounding more brutal/intense/noisy and chaotic-but-tight than ever before! 

Listen here:

This Tuesday at the Make It Up Club prepare to get blasted into the electronic realm of the sonoverse as six electrifying young circuitry abusers inflict their will upon the speaker cones of Bar Open, your ears and brains. A first-time trio of epic sonic proportions, namely firebrand aural punishers Carey Knight, Samaan Fieck & Nik Kennedy, will rain molten detritus of mangled frequencies triggered by years of being called 'emerging artists'. Travis John presents a systematic and methodical torture session for guitar, wreaking intense sonic pressure on a robustly resonant body to evoke skull-splintering drones from a simple combination of string, pickup and amp. And scumcore noise brutalisers Harriet Morgan and Luke Holland channel analog scree as Armour Group, scouring the aether of the ancient occult, antediluvian war and archaic historical sources for sonic insight.

This Tuesday is your last chance to aleatorically party on down for the Make It Up Club's sweet 16th birthday with our final four groups, representing three continents of sonic vocabulary, further fostering intercultural collaboration via communicatory spontaneous music creation and mutual construction of transcendent textures. Melbournian diasporic cellist Anthea Caddy returns to the MIUC stage on her yearly jaunt home from Berlin to the motherland for a clash of string and vocal resonance with oral force of nature Nik Kennedy to round out a killer month of rarefied cross-cultural collaborations. It has also been two years since American modular maven Ben Vida blasted dense synthetic frequency clusters at the architecture of Bar Open, but in 2014 he's here to celebrate improvisation by affecting and reacting to the patch pin matrix, knob and joystick manipulations of Mathew Watson to co-create some layered electronic ecstasy. We also have a first time Make It Up Clubber in British vocalist Viv Corringham, a notional storyteller of lingual deconstruction and textural liberation, ably welcomed to the environs of Melbournian improv by local legend and ambassador-of-impromptu Dave Brown. And a cavalcade of free jazz firebrands corralled by living luminary Kris Wanders and featuring double bassist Slawek Janicki, saxophonist Brett Evans, drummer Damien Ellis & keyboardist Jude Russel, contextualise that the MIUC would probably be nonexistent were it not for Ornette's actions over 50 years ago.

•Anthea Caddy [MEL/BER] (Cello) & Nik Kennedy (Voice)

•Ben Vida [US] (Modular Synth) & Mat Watson (Synthi AKS)

•Viv Corringham [UK] (Voice) & Dave Brown (Guitar, Objects)
