from Mark Groves:
Saturday February 9 at Pony (68 Little Collins Street City) Sabbatical brings together five remarkable performances. Opening the evening is Krystkrvstoffiston the Grey Klvt Metal/Depressive AFBM noise project of Christopher L G Hill (Moffarfarrah, Paeces, St John's Ambience and Shawl) and Simon Taylor (Whitehorse, Bone Sheriff, St John's Ambience). Blarke Bayer (Ben Andrews of My Disco, Agents of Abhorrence) and Absoluten Calfeutrail (Mark Groves of True Radical Miracle, Whitehorse) then offer a rare duo performance of harsh scream and aural harm. Heil Spirits (Northern New South Wales resident Eli Partridge of The Stockholm Syndrome) makes his Victorian debut, following a number of releases on his Glacial Avatar Archive imprint. He will be joined on this occasion by Anna (Festive Jackyls) and Rob ( Robot.W.Power). Following this Chrysalis (Tasmanian Chris Groves of long running noise/power electronics label Cipher Productions) also makes his Victorian live debut. Rounding out the evening is the formidable analogue nightmare of local duo Y35.3.
