UMBILICAL TENTACLE @ Nighthawks 11/10/2018


Bringing some minor chaos to the new lil room in the roof of everybody’s favourite bar, Nighthawks.

Creep Diets gonna barf up some monstrous riffs.

Umbilical Tentacle gonna sluice a squid.

and Occult Blood gonna rumble the neanderthunderbox.

So sip a beer, slop up the stairs and splat your ears with the soggy sounds.

Thursday October 11th 
8pm / $8

mVerseJun2017 copy


Total Devastation Noisecore!! Launching their “Extreme Noise Terrific” album!

A horseshoe in a mechanical boxing glove punching you right in the guts!!

Dark noise/drone duo

Ambient, doom, ritual, drone

After more than 10 years in existence, HOLY BONER have finally released an album!!

EXTREME NOISE TERRIFIC is 25 trax of harsh blastin’, bowel rumbling, finger shredding, throat destroying noisegrind chaos. HOLY BONER deliver a vicious stop-start blast attack, full of punishing harsh wall obliterations, brief musical excursions and inevitable relapses into aural devastation!!

Utilising an ungodly arsenal of homemade/modified instruments, FX pedals, blast-o-ramas and shredded throats, HOLY BONER create a cacophonous racket of speaker cone shattering, tinnitus exacerbating, noisecore annihilation worthy of the bloody long wait!!

Strap yourself in for an enduring blasphemic thrillride of horrendous sonic masochism and annoyance!!!


Feat blokes from: Super Fun Happy Slide, Umbilical Tentacle, KLUNK, Social Climber and blah blah blah playing TOTAL DEVASTATION NOISECORE inspired by our favourite noisy bands like GBN, WORLD, ARSE DESTROYER, AC, FINAL EXIT, LDoH blah blah blah.

Massive cheers to everyone local and interstate who has helped get this tour together! Great line-ups, I wish I could be there for the interstate gigs!
Seeing Kiyasu play solo was a highlight of my Japan trip last year for sure. He’s one of the most dedicated grind/noisemakers I’ve ever met, and this tour is entirely self-funded, so go give him the support he deserves!



This week at MIUC we embrace bombastic brutality for the midpoint of our month-long birthday festivities, featuring four fierce frequential factions fixedly fascinated with tinnital fuel efficiency.

Two of the most awe-inspiringly aethyreal duos to ever bedeck the Bar Open stage on a Tuesday, namely organ-ic bombinators Lisa MacKinney & Roman Tucker and euphoric free jazzinators Maria Moles & Adam Halliwell, combine their impeccable processes at summoning sonic splendours.

Two of the most hypervariegatedly spontaneous shredders to arise from the pullulating pits of Hellbourne, namely amazing everythingist James Rushford and everythingcore percussive provocateur Sean Baxter, abstractedly discoursing on the intersectional potentialities of Xenakis, Les Légions Noire and Mark Hamill reading Trump tweets as The Joker.

And two of the most vociferously visceral cacophonous wrecking crews in town, namely Colostomy Baguette? and Holy Boner, unite to usher in an unholy new age of textural terror, handmade horrors, augmentative atrocities and cloyingly crasscore combinatorial bandnames.

– Lisa MacKinney (Organ), Roman Tucker (Organ), Maria Moles (Drums) & Adam Halliwell (Guitar, Electronics)

– James Rushford (Strings) & Sean Baxter (Skins, Things)

– Colostomy Boner? feat. John Stevens (Voice, Electronics), Wayne Donovan (Voice), Nik Kennedy (Handmade Noisebass, Voice), Brad Smith (Drums) & Rod Cooper (Handmade Shreddery, Voice)
