Haven’t updated here for ages… I haven’t really done any “proper” music/noise during the pandemic but I did get this amazing new noise machine from my friend and humble genius Electrofarts, which I’m calling the FART SWASH. It’s an Electrofarts interpretation of the 4MS Noise Swash and it sounds fuggin siiiiiiick!!!
Based in Brooklyn (NY), Verhalten is the project of rhythmic noise powerhouse Patrick Scott (who also curates US label Modern Tapes). Verhalten uses Surgical minimalism, distorted repetition and harsh walls of textural sound are used to truly dissect the failures of power structures and the human condition.
We are extremely excited to have Verhalten appearing at Longplay Cinema December 3rd.
Performing alongside them will be
A special collab set with Gnaumgn and is there a hotline?

Come get spooky on Halloween at Bar 303 with a special nightmarish line up of lunatics and horrific displays of art!
Featuring the nasty noises of the legendary glass crunching monster JUSTICE YELDHAM from the hellish scrap heap they call Sydney, the creature baby from the noisy deep UMBILICAL TENTACLE, the prehistoric neanderthunderous abomination OCCULT BLOOD, the dark princess of misery UBOA and the gnarled 2 headed improv beast R/S.
and Unleashing the terrifying, gut churning artworks of KROOKS, VI, OFFMENTALVISUALS, DELIRIOUSINK and SCRAWNART so frightening your eyes will melt.
the Cauldron will be flowing early at the unveiling of horrific visions (art opening at 6 come drink) and will keep overflowing with the wretched brew while the witches dance (to the live music that starts at 8PM) well into the darkness of the night (bars open til 3am).
FANCY DRESS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED!!
What’s described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is in fact the unique work of Lucas Abela (also know as Justice Yeldham), a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. In his now infamous show which has astonished and bemused countless people in over 45 countries, Abela ecstatically purses his lips against panes of amplified glass whilst deftly employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries, to turn the discarded shards into crude musical instruments. The results are a wild array of oddly controlled cacophonous noise teetering on the edge of music. This show quite simply needs to be witnessed to be fully appreciated, let alone understood.
“Lucas is just captivating. It’s incredible how he can flip the feeling of a room upside down and sonically theres just no other sound like his” – ZACH HILL – Death Grips
“the most exciting performer I have seen in the last three years – in fact, since I first saw Iggy Pop” – Bruce Russell – WIRE
“brilliantly immediate performance, galvanising and alien and funny, and free of safe gestures and easy comparisons.” – Frances Morgan – the quietus.
R/S is the duo of Rama Parwata and Stevie Richards
