FBI SOCIAL, Kings Cross, Sydney
New Weird Australia & Octopus pi presented the third and final New Weird Australia live event at FBi Social in Kings Cross on Thursday 16th June 2011 – rounding off the series with a live simulcast broadcast on FBi.
Headlining this special night of Sydney-centric artists was Forenzics – the local collective renowned for their experimental and improvisational slant on noise, psych, drone, art rock & post punk. The band launched their third album, ‘Build Ruins‘, a collaboration with Japanese electronic artist Ryota Yamamura and Joe Cummins – released on June 13th on New Weird Australia’s ‘New Editions’ label.
Forenzics were joined by Domeyko/Gonzalez, the experimental / electronic Sydney duo of James Domeyko and Jaie Gonzalez, mixing a wild melee of instrumentation and sounds, and landing somewhere between Fuck Buttons and The Dirty Three. The band celebrated the launch of their mini-album ‘No Way Back’, the follow-up to their acclaimed debut EP ‘The Circle Trilogy‘.
Also on the line-up, ‘disillusioned punks’ Jusgo Mosh – diverting their energy into noise / improv / psych territory – and four piece experimentalists Robot House, stirring up an eclectic mishmash of turntables, table, guitars and mixed electronics. Visuals on the night came from Redcell.
The event also marked the second anniversary of the New Weird Australia project, and to celebrate, FBi Radio broadcast a live simulcast of the event on the ‘New Weird Australia’ radio show.
