27.12.10 - "What do you do on New Year's Day anyway?"

Saturday January 1, 2011

Doors 8:30pm

POLETOPRA (Anthony Pateras/Marco Fusinato)
FRANCIS PLAGNE BAND
SEAN BAXTER

"Hungover, brutalized by public stupidity? Can't remember what happened last night? That's OK! On NEW YEAR"S DAY- POLETOPRA, FRANCIS PLAGNE BAND and SEAN BAXTER will be sonically curing your injured synapses, with, well, possibly more injury!

POLETOPRA is the combination of visual art iconoclast MARCO FUSINATO (guitar/electronics) and all around composer/electronics whacko ANTHONY PATERAS (analogue synth) in searing duo format. Due to busy international schedules, local appearances are rare for this group, so what better way to continue the countdown for the Mayans than with the sounds of apocalypse!

FRANCIS PLAGNE is the acclaimed pop introvert/ all around musical know-it-all who quietly entraps his audiences with delicate melodies and fragile arrangements. Joined with full band and strings, his live shows are a rare gem.

SEAN BAXTER is THE poet of Melbourne avant sound, and has been an on stage regular at the Tote since the early 90s in guises such as the Throwaways, Bucketrider, Embers and SxSxSx. He even has a photo behind the bar. As head honcho of the Make It Up Club, his speeches are almost as famous as his internationally famous shitcore percussion stylez.

This is an all-star bill guaranteed to cleanse the mind and feed the ears on the day after humanity reaches its yearly low. What do you do on New Year's Day anyway?"

13.08.10 - R.I.P SOCIETY's SUCCESS SUMMIT 2010

To celebrate a successful year of releasing Australian records, being a cultural high point
for this generation and a beacon of hope for all humanity it is a pleasure to present to you R.I.P SOCIETY’s SUCCESS SUMMIT 2010. Launching the vinyl edition the Zond LP
and the debut 7” from BOOMGATES, alongside a collection of bands that get the R.I.P tombstone of approval it’s bound to be a highlight of the 2010 live music and motivational seminar circuit. Over two stages at the Annandale Hotel, Sunday October 3. Monday being the Labour Day public holiday so no excuses! This is the type of stuff Bono will be giving
his two cents about in some cruddy documentary 15 years from now, so get there at any cost!

LINE-UP:
Zond
Royal Headache
Blank Realm
Boomgates
Woollen Kits
Carborator
Whores

Presented by Tone Defeat. Pre-sale tickets from:
The Annandale Hotel - $15 (+$3.45 booking fee).

Also available from:
Repressed Records, 356 King St Newtown for $15 with a $2 booking fee which they’ll drop with any record, CD, book, t-shirt etc purchase over $10.


ROYAL HEADACHE
Some people have even dubbed them “motown inspired garage” or even “rock ‘n’ soul” but fear not this isn‘t your blatant 60’s dress up revivalism, festival mum friendly gimmick rock. Royal Headache are a punk band! A very good punk band, with an actual singer. In an era where we’re bombarded by one dimensional summertime pop, ironic or “clever” made up electro-cross-genres and disenfranchised too-hip-for-the-audience wayfarer rock, a band that communicates real human emotion like Royal Headache do is essential. A full length LP coming in the new year on R.I.P Society.

ZOND
Zond are a maximum volume, minimalist sound rock group based in Melbourne, Australia. They are named after a member of the group's childhood dog and/or a Hi-God People track and/or satellite of the USSR. But ZOND are broadcasting very dark grey ecstasy, not from space but from a place deep inside the automatic mind brain. They are an audio holographic Rorschach blot flatlining, or a Freudian analysis gone horribly wrong on bad medicine from the future. Their live shows vary from a screaming psychedelic punk car crash to an ambient metal alloy hum: all that can be known in advance is the intensity of the performance. ZOND include members of past and present groups: On, Fong, Library Punks, Mum Smokes, Ned & the Meds, Wasted Truth... Launching the vinyl edition of their self titled album (out September 1 on R.I.P Society).

BLANK REALM
Since their first trip to Sydney roughly 4 years ago Brisbane’s Blank Realm have evolved from a drone/psych collective to a epic psych-rock/post-punk/classic ROCK group. Unlike many bands in this zone who find a sound and milk it for years, Black Realm are a force that have continuously developed their distinctive sound. Their scattered discography includes now sold out releases on Digitalis and Not Not Fun Records. Sports fans can look forward to hearing elements of Chrome, The Feelies, Velvet Underground, Neu and Chairs Missing/154 era Wire with a tasteful use of synth and guitar fx, a drummer that never crosses his arms, dual vocals and not a paisley in sight!

WOOLLEN KITS
Melbourne’s Woollen Kits are three nice young men who play rock ‘n’ roll with a similar sentiment to The Modern Lovers, The Clean, Vaselines etc but unlike a bunch of the jerk-offs claiming these bands as influences these guys do it with stompin’ garage/ ‘77 punk gusto. But wait there’s more… these guys weren’t satisfied with just having a youthful energy and great guitar sound, they even went to the effort of writing actually great songs. Woollen Kits are always willing to lend a hand when Sydney R.I.P Society acts go through Melbourne, it’s a pleasure to return the favour.

BOOMGATES
You may not yet know the name but featuring members of Dick Diver, The Twerps, Teen Archer and Eddy Current Suppression Ring there’s a good chance you’ll know the faces. Boomgates pretty much play what you’d expect (and I mean that as a compliment) sentimental, knows-no-evil, good time guitar pop. No tricks here, just good honest ridiculously catchy songs. Debut 7” out on R.I.P Society September 1st.

CARBORATOR
Carborator are a band formed by Dead Farmers guitarist David Akerman having recorded a bunch of Velvet Underground inspired demo’s on his trusty four track cassette recorder. He’s enlisted Songs drummer Steve Uren, Royal Headache/Bed Wettin’ Bad Boy member Joe Sukit on guitar and fellow Bad Boy/R.I.P Society CEO Nic Warnock on bass. Although the VU’s presence still remains, live the band has a thrust-worthy, primitive hard rock sound reminiscent of early 70’s Rolling Stones, Small Faces, “proto-punk“ and CCR.

WHORES
A band that feeds off the uglier side of that 80's Australia punk/post-punk, probably more inspired by “reduced for quick sale” roo-meat than beat poetry. Think Venom P Stinger, X, Feedtime, AmRep noise rock and The Fall with the sceptical, outsider attitude of first wave Hardcore. Whores have a sound that is cynical, monotonous, instinctive and full of hate. These are all good things.

03.08.10 - Face Value

BRENDAN HUNTLEY
FACE VALUE
HELL GALLERY at MELBOURNE ART FAIR / BOOTH B70

Hell Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new work by Brendan Huntley.
Face Value embraces an all-new family of ceramic vessels and paintings, expanding Brendan’s investigations into individual and collective personalities. Without telling a story, eachpiece stands alone as a heavily imbued object. Some are friendly, some recognizably family. Some are thuggish and foe. All are linked by a static jostling for their place within the group.

24.07.10 - Gavin Russom



Having found a rare free window in his hectic touring schedule with LCD Soundsystem, musician, visual artist, audio technician and bearded wizard Gavin Russom will perform a one off DJ set on Wednesday. Last year Russom unveiled Black Meteoric Star, a DFA released alias reminiscent of Jeff Mills’ wizardry and the jacking homemade acid experiments of the Trax house label, fused with the stark minimal soundscape of his then Berlin home. The project was adapted to the stage in collaboration with masters of the visual overload - AVAF (aka Assume Vivid Astro Focus), which even saw a stimulating 3D performance at MoMA. Russom was most recently involved in the Brazilia inspired Crystal Ark and has built instruments for the likes James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE) and Bjorn Copeland (Black Dice). He’ll be joined by special guests on the night.

Some interesting youtube videos…

LOOKING FORWARD

BRENDAN HUNTLEY

OPENING FRIDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 6 - 9PM
EXHIBITION SAT 12 UNTIL SAT 26 SEPTEMBER

"Brendan Huntley has exhibited across such spaces as the Carlton Hotel, Someday Gallery and Hell Gallery. 'Looking Forward' is the fifth solo exhibition from Brendan Huntley. Stemming from a background in graffiti, Brendan now divides his energy between painting and sculpture. When out of his studio, Brendan spends his time eating olives and fronting garage rock band Eddy Current Suppression Ring.

'Looking Forward' is an exhibition that presents Brendan's explorations into the human psyche. Working with ink, pastel, enamel, oil stick on paper and ceramic he has produced an assortment of vessels, infusing them with individual sensibilities.

Through sculptural and two-dimensional forms, multiple personalities are evoked and
the facade of the everyday revealed. Brendan's works are concerned with the beauty of the mundane, dealing with the ordinary and what often lies beneath. Investigating our joys, fears, thoughts and observations on life.

Either through his lyrics or his artworks, Brendan is determined to voice his concerns.
His work is marked by a compulsive truth and honesty that speaks of what it is to be human."

21.04.09 - New Releases.



The Bats/Songs - Split 7"

Track Listing :
Side One: The Bats – Castle Lights
Side One: The Bats – Under the Branches

Side Two: Songs – My Number
Side Two: Songs – Keeping it Clean (Acoustic)

Label: The Spring Press
Format: 7"

"Greatly influential New Zealanders The Bats bring us two new tracks; one an excerpt from their new album The Guilty Office and the other an unreleased outtake from the same sessions; two tracks of their signature understated guitar pop. Sydney based Songs bring us an acoustic version of Keeping it Clean and a new track My Number which employs old motorik rhythms with the melodies of their debut. The 7" cover features new work by photographer (and Songs member) Max Doyle." - The Spring Press




Naked On The Vague - Chitty Chat

Track Listing :
Side A: Chitty Chat
Side B: Goodbye Dear Cliche

Label: Sacred Bones
Format: 7"

"Australia’s Naked on the Vague return for another two-sider of serious harsh downer vibes. Drum, synth, bass and vocal ferocity from this male/female duo that comes out sounding like a surprisingly more danceable version of Whitehouse. Fans of last year’s Skulltones 7-inch and Siltbreeze full-length won’t be disappointed." - Sacred Bones
