THE MERMAIDS & VAVENGE double launch party in Sydney


Back again it's No Refunds #70 with the experimental double record launch of the proverbial Travelling Wilburys of Australian exploratory artists Vavenge and Newcastle's perennially excellent The Mermaids

Vavenge comprises the dual synth & vocal attack of Nick Dan (xNoBBQx) and Nicola Morton (Club Sound Witches), the gothic bass melodies of Anthony Guerra (Love Chants) along with the semi-random automated whizzer percussion contraption courtesy of Matt Earle (Breakdance the Dawn, etc). Their fourth release contains four lengthy, disembodied moods appropriate for zoning out within spacious surrounds. Each enveloping field whisks one away into a subtle background of negative density, pausing in time for a reflection on nothingness.

The Mermaids are the duo of Mikey Liestins (Grog Pappy) and Nic French from Newcastle, Australia. Their album ‘For More Smoking Pleasure’ sees the aural trouble makers manipulate a cornucopia of recording devices such as 8-track tape, turntables, circuit bent toys and other loopers to mangle the Aussie spirit of ‘taking the piss’ to a level of the absurd that would disturb the mind of even the most rational cynic. This psychedelic layer cake bubbles with ecstatic noises and has inhaled the vapour of joyful flippancy.
