a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The Queen's Birthday long weekend knights the second SUNDAY SECRETIONS, pronouncing a line up of some of Sydney's most eclectic subversive talent. The June, 13th slated event will also feature the launch of a ZINE FAIR that runs in tandem with the bands, showcasing some of New South Wale's finest alternative journalist/media-based crafts and DIY peculiars.
TEN THOUSAND FREE MEN AND THEIR FAMILIES is the remarkable chiptune composer, Tom Gilmore, expurgating his lungs over 4-bit sonic embodiments of chaos that draw their blood from early hardcore as much as the source-code of Gunpei Yokoi's most celebrated invention.
FORENZICS create visceral improvised noise-rock with a specificity of intent that paints them a red line on a grey wall of outsider musicians and knob-turning bedroom dwellers. A monster of surgical malformations with precision in their menace and menace in their precision.
GODSWOUNDS stand in this current incarnation as a Six-Armed Mahakala, the sacred objects of each fist drawing their origins from mediums as diverse as Early Electronic Music, Compositional, Metal, Punk, various sources of Avant Garde and 80s/90s video game music. This may stand to be one of their final performances in Australia before they leave the island once more, this time to tour Europe.
SLIMEY THINGS are a cricket bat to the ribs of post-Bungle music, creating tongue-in-cheek works of frantically shifting sound palettes that have made them both bastion and gatekeeper to subversive music in Sydney. But, they are not ballasts of esoterica, their sci-fi fueled compositions emerging whole and well-crafted amidst the frenzy of their remarkable talent. All hail the toast.
SUNDAY, JUNE 13th.
The EXCELSIOR, 64 Foveaux st, Surry Hills.
Doors open at 5pm to give you a chance to peruse the visual lovelies on display before the bands commence.
