LISTEN: Emergency! Emergency! EP (2007 Flashback)



This is a slightly personal post for me, as I used to live with the guy behind this EP. He was introduced to me by Dot.AY at one of our early shows together. His music was influential in my project's development. Now, after all this time, he's uploaded his EP to youtube for new people to hear. So you know, have a listen and remember what was; electro, sampling, yelling, chip, the works.

LISTEN: maddest kings alive - combat magick



There's some new fiyah from Melbourne's own maddest kings alive. Get on it ASAP.


GIG: SoundBytes 12! Sept 28, 2012




SoundBytes12 has a line up packed with friends from across the ditch, here to put their very kiwi stamp all over Melbourne’s chip scene. 

If you go online looking for ways to describe $noregazZzm (http://snoregazzzm.bandcamp.com/) no two explanations are alike. Some of the words used are ‘spastic’, ‘snotty’, ‘parodic disco’ ‘party oriented’ and ‘great fun’. He’s heading to Melbourne with frequent tour-mate Fauxhound (http://fauxhound.bandcamp.com/), who is self-described as “New Zealand’s answer to 10K” 

which pretty much will tell you everything you need to know about the type of insanity this show is going to be.

You may have been blown away by our other kiwi (who is now a based here in Burn city) A_Art (http://aart.bandcamp.com/) at the last Soundbytes. We sure were and are super excited to have him back on a bill to join his countrymen this time around.

We haven’t forgotten the Aussies. Crowd favourite, cTrix (http://soundcloud.com/ctrix) will be fresh back from his European tour playing to huge crowds alongside some chip favourites like Henry Homesweet, Sabrepulse, Cheapshot and 8GB. Expect new tracks, old favourites, and as always, amazing tunes. Our other Melbournite, Pselodux (http://pselodux.bandcamp.com/), returns to SoundBytes with amazing 80’s style, synth-leads, and prog rock stylings to get you dancing. Backing these guys up is Abortifacient (http://soundcloud.com/abortifacient) playing his last Aussie show before he heads to Japan for a tour that includes Blip Tokyo!

Presale $10 http://brk.to/sbtix
Door $15

FABO. CM.O.
