Crab Smasher live and acoustic. Recorded at FBI radio Sydney in 2010. A cross between the older, experimental crab smasher with kids toys, tapes, and knick knacks, blended with newer, psychy sounding crab smasher with percussion, guitars, and arguably song structure. Bike Nakano play amplified bicycles, jamming them up with all the different pieces of scraps and tools, doing their best to make it so they can not be ridden again. Their first release.

Comedy & Tragedy - Eric & Robyn Werkhoven Opening Nov 4 at 2pm



"Eric & Robyn Werkhoven, who exhibit together under the title of Studio La Primitive, present an exhibition of drawings, paintings and assemblages. For the past thirty years Eric and Robyn Werkhoven have lived and worked as a professional contemporary artists in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Both are award winning artists and have been Finalists in major Australian art prizes. Their work has been selected for exhibitions nationally and internationally.

Art Music by Michael from The Mermaids– explores their perpetual intrigue with the rituals, mysteries and absurdities of existence.

“Revealing the world of human caprice, with a sheer delight and a touch of irony”.

The artist’s individual styles are evident in their collaborative works; Robyn’s passion for portraiture and figuration, and Eric’s stylised mythical beasts and human creatures, as is their shared attraction to bold colour and line. Their styles come together in these works complementing each other and creating an exciting collection of new works.

The exhibition includes a series of drawings and paintings by Robyn and sculptural assemblages by Eric and several works by Monique Werkhoven.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Joe Eisenberg OAM
Art Music by Michael from The Mermaids."

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.

DEAL OF THE CENTURY:
VAVENGE OR THE MERMAIDS LP FOR 20 DOLLARS

FREE ENTRY
5 DOLLAR BEERS
