Available from one place and for one night only : 28th August at the Bearded Lady in Brisbane, a copy of DTX06 will be given to each paying customer at the Detonics Presents Gig (while stocks last!).
Featuring tracks from each of the bands playing that night : Corporate Vibes, Yaws, mnttaB, Wolf Shield and Spirit Bunny....and many , many more.
Yaws : Regression
Minimal Techno for the critical cerebellum. Sailing very close to arhythmic chaos this track builds into a groove that defies its component parts. One of 3 bangers on the next Detonics release: a 'sew-on 3" Cd Single' due in late August. We negotiated Dom "Dj" status for the Gig, so hang around for unlimited audio dementia from midnight to infinity.
Spirit Bunny : Disco Horseride Montage
Irresistible pop hooks from this Brisbane 3 piece. Mixing live drums with antique/gaming electronic devices (and a fearsome beard) to produce a quite unique sound that would surely be on national daytime radio high rotation if God was still alive.
Wolf Shield : Her
Live drums propel ex-MassAppeal mouth Randy Reiman into another dimension on this early unreleased gem that sounds like it could have been a "Taking Tiger Mountain" outtake . Watch out for a full LP later this year from the French label "Exhibit" who F'ING POACHED HIM OFF OF DETONIC!!!
mnttaB : Spaceage Folksong
Nearly an instrumental, nearly a pop song, nearly a tune. A track from the "Futures is static" release from earlier this year... huge in parts of Normandy. Apparently.
Corporate Vibes : Bass Strait
One of many great tunes on the forthcoming Cassette LP on "Moontown", a concept album built around the Sydney-Hobart yacht race.. or maybe the sponsoring thereof : expect the stage show to run for years. Wet suit Chic.
Human Plastic Cup: You can always run away to your dreams
Beautiful post everything piano epicness with a start, a middle, and (all too soon) an end . The latest project from Scott Mclatchie (Diploid, WAAG, Twoson etc) who is as talented as he must be amnesiac and/or attention deficit.
Celiac : Promised you a Miracle
Ok, I'm very proud of the fact that I have never watched an episode of Friends, Im not so proud of the number of Simple Minds records in my collection. Miel Balestrat takes the knife to this Classic FM staple until all that is left on the Gurney is a bloated heart quivering in its gaping rib cage.
I Killed Techno: Sex and Violence
I Like covers , always have, this one is a note for note copy of the Exploited "classic" except with a grimy synth and a bratty Texan replacing Wattie and Co. IKT were the first band (of many) to refuse point blank to release anything with Detonic. (what exactly is an "Ethical Reason" ?? )
Strasbourg : Sexe and Violence
Someone told me this was also an exploited cover, but as done by a band who had never heard the original,....hmmm....now Im thinking that is a brilliant premise for a compilation! (coming soon to a bargain bin near you.. )
Schonwald : Slow Milk
Slightly more sex than violence (but only just) from the Italian boy girl duo.
They may be cute as a button ..but there's something nasty going on here : "Dragging her a circle skin, His face it doesn't fit, Very clean, Very nice, Very well."
Sensai Suicide club : make more golden sun games that franchise has nowhere to go butup
A taste of what the yoof of Canada is actually capable of when it cuts loose, insane chiptune mayhem that unfolds into a great song, play in the car really loud with the windows down on the way to work. Also its worth checking their bandcamp every couple of days, they're prolific little buggers. Probly snowed in or something.
Tuxedo Gleam : Musique
Brooding synth-Goth gloom from the California based Gleamers. This was a candidate for inclusion on the Normalised Compilation so Ladies: check out their track on DTX04 if you want more of that Murphy Does Curtis on Korg action ....
Prison : Kundle
I fell in love with this band when they played on a dark autumn night in Fitzroy, it was a really magical evening, I ate a Falafell on the way home, it was dry. They played this tune, complete with handclaps and Im counting the days until they venture forth from Denmark again.
