Ever wonder what hardcore, grindcore and extreme metal would sound like if played by an electronics obsessed crackhead? Well look no further because Aaron Spectre, the intense and unique Drumcorps is coming (to Sydney and Brisbane)!
His music is like an unholy marriage between Botch, Converge, Genghis Tron and Venetian Snares. Glitches, blast-beats, beat downs, insane drum and bass, screams, guitars - it's all there!
As it was borne of live shows, Drumcorps is made to be performed. Notorious for the intensity of his sets, which are truly adrenaline marathons, no energy is spared in bringing the music to the audience. Utilising multiple controllers and a guitar on stage, the show is a frantic display of hands-on sound manipulation.
Drumcorps has toured the world over, recently performed alongside the likes of Autechre, Squarepusher, Genghis Tron, Luke Vibert and Venetian Snares. Australia’s first chance to experience Drumcorps live will be on the 9th of January 2009, at Hermanns Bar USYD.
“like Dillinger Escape Plan with Venetian Snares on drums... fucking amazing” - Aquarius Records
“one of the world's greatest and most versatile producers” - XLR8R Magazine
“this one scared me within an inch of my life...” - Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio
Here's the details for the Sydney show:
Tickets are $20 and the show is on 09/01 at Hermanns Bar.

Six Thinking Hats
Man you wont wanna miss this. The infamous Channel ? are putting on some kind of crazy multi-floored party with 40 odd DJs (with a dedicated breakcore stage!) and some funk/rock bands like Rumpunch, The Day of the Meerkat and The Fuji Collective.
Apparently it's in a building in the middle of the city on the 14th floor with 360 degree city views. We wont know until crunch time as the venue is not to be posted anywhere. You have to call 0450 426 260 to find out the venue on the night, which is apparently just 5 minutes from the CBD.
This sounds like an unmissable event if you ask me. I'm going to go listen to some Municipal Waste in anticipation.

SCUM ASYLUM (Breakcore) Presents On level 2:
You know what kicks arse? Breakcore.
You know how grindcore is essentially the most chaotic, fucked up, fast, neck breaking, mind fucking, shit ruining, violent music in the extreme punk/metal realm? Breakcore is essentially the equivalent in the electronica world - shit so fucking complex, fast and insane that the vast majority of the world is reduced to a screaming, thrashing mess of "TURN THAT FUCKING NOISE OFF!!!".
Anyway: I love it and I think it's insanity has the potential to appeal to fans of some grindcore. So much so that I am thinking about putting on a grindcore vs. breakcore show. Some examples include some of the work of Aphex Twin, Venetian Snares, Squarepusher and probably others.
I haven't been to any local breakcore gigs myself, so there are a few DJs on this show I will be on hand to hear. Furthermore, it's a party - and lets face it, you have nothing better to do. Come down and get mangled with us. Some names playing are: Killjoy, Cat-Grrl, Maladriot, Rainbow Ejaculation, Anal Erection, Unhappy Animals Make Bad Meat, Abortifacient, Eject, Dalit, B.I.N.T.
EDIT: change of venue!
