Lesstalk Gig Guide: March 6th and 7th

Lesstalk Gig Guide: March 6th and 7th

Two of Lesstalk’s more active members are playing some pretty freaking good shows this weekend to kick off Autumn. Crab Smasher are supporting Naked on the Vague Sat night at Carriageworks and Michael Crafter is supporting Realicide on Sunday at Jura Books. All the details are below.

Part two in the Lucas Abela curated Auraltered State series of performances at Carriageworks is coming up this week. You’d be stupid to miss this!

Diving deep into a world of apocalyptic pop and psychedelic weirdness Naked On The Vague offer a modern take on the post punk aesthetic. Faling into existence in 2005 with a found organ, broken bass guitar, borrowed drum and some old doom poetry. Their 2007 debut album ‘the blood pressure sessions’ attracted them the attention of seminal US label siltbreeze, who are set to release their second album.

Sydney Australia’s favourite chronically depressed, long term unemployed, alcoholic, asthmatic, homosexual electronic music pioneer. An early adherent to punderphonics, Garry Bradbury is a master editor of found sound, whether it be fastidious early experiments with reel to reel tape or working on today’s digital palette.

Crab Smasher are a NSW based group of improvisational sound sharks crafting a frenzied hodgepodge of weirdo psychedelic noise rock and experimental pop delicious. The band formed in 2002 as a cheesy electronic novelty noise act and have since mutated through a number of confusing formations into the sellout 4-5 headed rock-and-roll hydra that exists today. With about 13 or 14 CDR, cassette, and digital releases to their name, the band are currently working on a new LP, which promises to be both titillating and queer.
