L$D Fundraiser, Ducklingmonster, Psychick Witch, Vow Cave – Saturday 24 February

af web

To mark the occasion of the release of L$D Fundraiser’s new LP, Witness Disco, on CocoMuseRleases, come revel in the static alongside the man himself plus special guests Ducklingmonster, Psychick Witch and Vow Cave.

 

L$D Fundraiser (Dene Barnes) is a central figure of the southern-isle’s noisey, grinding underground scene. His prolific ‘anti-Laptop’ tape-releases of psychedelic soundscaping conjure uneasy, at times abrasive images of a distopic present. Recently vindicated following a somewhat farcical waste of time, energy and moneny, L$D Fundraiser is a must-see. “Would you feel threatened if I told you I was going to firebomb your house and car?” to which Dene responded, “Personally I wouldn’t take it as a threat because I have neither a house or a car.”

Ducklingmonster’s (Beth Dawson) dunt-loops bring the fuzz and the fun. Another foundational figure of the weird, Dawson’s combining of A and V calls to mind a fictive discotech, beyond cool, heard from a distance.

Psychick Witch is a loose-knit band of misfits who transgress all things, holy and otherwise. Helmed by Benedict Quilter, their recent release on the Sydney-based Chemical Imbalance imprint was received with glee beneath the underground.

Vow Cave transport listeners directly to another realm with their haunting, ethereal soundscapes of percussion, voice and atmospheric synthesis.
