Regurgitator!

REGURGITATOR dining guests, showcase and ALBUM HITS THE STREETS NOW!

Sep 9, 2013

REGURGITATOR
Dirty Pop Fantasy out NOW!
Announcing special dining guests for the Dirty Pop tour… from Portland WAMPIRE and many more.
Plus BIG SOUND showcase inclusion… WED 11 SEPT in Brisbane.
An extra show in HOBART on Thurs 26 Sept.

After what seemed like a hell quest to all corners of the universe seeking out that something special for the tour… for the first time in a long time it seemed like our backs were up against the wall.
Things just didn’t seem to gel and at the same time easily over 70 requests came from all over the country wanting to play on these shows. At one stage it looked like MARNIE STERN was up for the ride but drummers just didn’t fall her way and this eventually lead to WAMPIRE approaching. And so yes here we go… the world turns in mysterious ways. It goes up…

After forming WAMPIRE, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps quickly made a name for themselves in Portland, Oregon. Their new album Curiosity (produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait out on Pop Frenzy) is instantly memorable and it’s diverse combination of sounds ultimately helped give birth to it’s title – a word that invokes the listener’s wonder at what will greet their ears next, while also describing the overall curious tone the record possesses.

From there it came down to working through the multitude of interest to calibrate a grand bouffe fit for the fling… so here we go RACKETS and BIG RICK join us in New Zealand and then getting downright dirty with in Australia is WAMPIRE with NAKED in Hobart on the Wednesday and for a SECOND HOBART show on the Thursday we have MESS O’REDS; Link’s new SUN GOD REPLICA in Victoria; BRUCE in Wollongong and Sydney and SUPER BEST FRIENDS in Canberra and Sydney; MAIDS in Newcastle; long time keyboard cohort in her solo outfit SEJA; and for the final shows in WA up and coming COW PARADE COW. Please see info on all of their fine attributes below.

And just announced this week REGURGITATOR join BILLY BRAGG and ROBERT FORSTER as the final showcase inclusions for the 2013 BIG SOUND music conference in Brisbane.
Look for them WED 11 SEPT at 11.30pm ELECTRIC PLAYGROUND – http://www.qmusic.com.au/bigsound/2013/index.cfm?contentID=714&articleID=10209

DIRTY POP FANTASY out today… available on CD via MGM (and eventually VINYL – the cover got lost in a courier van during so delayed until next week) and the Valve webstore plus on iTunes and all the other digital outlets… and again direct from the Regurgitator BANDCAMP for whatever you want – regurgitator.bandcamp.com

The album will also continue to stream on DEEZER where it has had great success across Australia, Mexico, Thailand, Poland, Romania, Germany, Turkey hitting just under 50,000 streams and remaining at #1 album and artist in Australia for the majority of the time plus Mountains made it to #1 in Singapore. http://www.deezer.com/en/album/6863101

Those perverse pop creatures of cut and post interplay take a dive into the shallow end of reality, splatter the glass ceiling, hacking the fragmented fashion flash in a shimmer of sugar pop hysteria and the slice & dice channel flicker of our pop culture wonderland. Under the hyperneon of Hong Kong, the positively android stream the interstices of parody and homage, a twisted synthesis of random access starter cells… exploding kittens in your face where the future is never now in the modem world just a dirty pop fantasy.

Welcome to another universe in the Regurgitator saga. What started scaling the highrises of Hong Kong, backflipped through the streets of Melbourne then after some much rewarded van time ended up freefalling through those neon towers to slam back down to presence… and just like some Dirty Pop Fantasy we have album #8 readymade for reality featuring Mountains, Sine Wave, Made to Break, Can’t Stop and more than you can handle…

Advocate as advertised… DIRTY POP FANTASY out on any media that will accept it SEPT 6

WAMPIRE http://wampiremusic.com/   https://www.facebook.com/wampiremusic
After forming Wampire, Rocky Tinder and Eric Phipps quickly made a name for themselves in Portland, Oregon. Their new album Curiosity (produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait) is instantly memorable and it’s diverse combination of sounds ultimately helped give birth to it’s title – a word that invokes the listener’s wonder at what will greet their ears next, while also describing the overall curious tone the record possesses. Curiosity is available on Pop Frenzy/Popyvinyl.

RACKETS  http://racketsonline.bandcamp.com/   https://www.facebook.com/tennisRACKETS
From New Zealand. The movie ends with the Nashawn telling the audience the fate of his crew. He claims that he and his ex-girlfriend are back together taking their relationship slow this time around, his cousin Muggsey has started a strip club and gambling casino located in an airplane similar to the club in Nashawn’s plane, Elvis Hunkee has begun a sexual relationship with one of the abrasive airline security guards (Mo’Nique), and Elvis Hunkee’s son has become a major music video director but has disappeared shortly after filming a Michael Jackson video. Also the pilot later wakes up with his chain and clothing stolen.

BIG RICK https://www.facebook.com/big.bigrick
Wellington based described as a mix of Le Tigre and Family Force 5, self identify as abrasive funk.
“Big Rick. Were they what sounded like the cast of the Manamana song being kicked around the stage by a hastily organised Chills covers band?”

NAKED http://www.nakedtheband.com  http://nakedblackteeth.bandcamp.com
Hobart based somewhat-punk band Naked.

MESS O’REDS www.messoreds.bandcamp.com
Mess O’ Reds are a 3-piece who play an aggressive blend of garage and post-punk inflected with some weird downer-pop sensibility. Local gigging veterans at twenty years of age, Mess O’ Reds are expanding their poor recording track record with the upcoming release of their debut self-titled album and 7”, recorded by the band and mastered by all-round Australian independent music guru Mikey Young.

SUN GOD REPLICA https://www.facebook.com/SunGodReplica
The Sun Gods of old but remade in plastic.  Snackpack, Lance and Moose share Lars Ulrich, quilting, birds, Janet Leigh, Macrovision, Cowboys with you.

BRUCE www.facebook.com/bruce.wollongong www.brucerock.bandcamp.com
Loud blazing guitars, kick ass rhythm and growling bottom end with passionate driving vocals. This four headed beast was born from the ashes of rock trio Hy-Test in dirty smoke stained Wollongong early 2013 and have since been slaying audiences all over Australia, honing their craft from the self built jam shed in Tarrawanna “The Womb Room”.

SUPER BEST FRIENDS https://www.facebook.com/superbestfriends
Emerging from the picturesque concrete jungle of our fair nation’s capital and political hub, SUPER BEST FRIENDS have just release their seasonally-appropriate new single ROUND AND ROUND, accompanied by one of the most memorable music videos you’ll see this year. Kicking into overdrive the raw energy and satirical smarts that earned them triple j rotation and community radio love around Australia for their track NO LOGO IS A JOKE, as well as support slots for Birds Of Tokyo, Frenzal Rhomb, The Beards and Regular John, the ‘Bestie Boys’ are set to spend the rest of 2013 touring their explosive mish-mash of synth, guitars and witticisms in sweaty arenas of grit around the country.

MAIDS https://www.facebook.com/maidsmaids
This outstanding debut effort mixes the precision of Karnivool, the attitude of Nirvana and the eccentric ways of Nick Cave, David Byrne and Ozzy Osbourne. Throw some drop B riffs into a bag with a crazy man, infinite hooks and structures that will make you think twice and you have your new favourite thing. Maids. Based in Newcastle, Maids consists of Vocalist/Drummer – Sean Cook, Vocalist/Guitarist – Matthew James, Guitarist/Vocalist – Nathan Berryman, and Bass Player – Dylan Thomas. These four young gingerbread men are championing a fresh new version of indie rock.

SEJA https://www.facebook.com/Sejamusic    http://sejamusic.com/
Seja Vogel started playing music with Brisbane synth-punk trio Sekiden who’s high-energy live performances have reverberated worldwide. An artist constantly wanting to push her own creative boundaries, Seja has also lent her keyboarding and singing skills to touring buddies such as SPOD and David McCormack and became a permanent member of Regurgitator in 2007.
After a few years of touring, Seja created a new batch of solo pieces under her own name for her album We Have Secrets But Nobody Cares. Her second album All Our Wires (out 21 June 2013) sees the likes of Robert Forster, Cut Copy’s Tim Hoey and Regurgitator’s Ben Ely contributing vocals, guitars and bass, along with some arrangement from Wally De Backer.

COW PARADE COW http://cowparadecow.bandcamp.com  www.facebook.com/cowparadecow
Cow Parade Cow began as the bizzaro-pop solo recording project of Perth’s Mike Litton. With equal parts syncopated afro-inspired grooves and an enthusiastic love of big 60s melody, the home-produced recordings are an earnest, unique slice of the Western Australian musical landscape. The songs are skillfully and chaotically interpreted in the live setting by an extended family of between 6 and 10 musicians, wildly careening from steel-drum led freakouts into dreamy soundscapes and back again, all with a healthy dose of psychedelic fun. With a strong back-catalogue of three albums and over two hours of recorded material available free online, this is a truly unique and original beast.
