Khuruksetra (Indonesia)

Forepaw, 275 High st Northcote

Khuruksetra is an Indonesian experimental noise group influenced by Javanese performing arts and the Bharatayudha War. A collaboration between the members of Kalimayat, Whisperdesire, Hypervillain & a Poet. Now based in Sydney. This is a rare opportunity to see em do their thing in Melbourne.

Spit is the performing title of Ryan Cockburn, a New Zealander who is a sometime/past member of EYE along with Peter Stapleton, Nathan Thompson and Peter Porteous, among other things. He's in Melbourne now and we're not sure what to expect: Cheap toy guitars, mixers, microphones, turntables with busted records and computers are all part of his kit, and his recorded output seems pretty varied... Best to just come along for a look yourself.

Krystoffkrvstoffiston: Two guys who're involved in a swag of skewed local musical projects (MOFFARFARRAH, Collapsed Toilet Vietnam, White Horse, Paeces... ) do this great bleak/black ("bleack"?) metal / doom / drone + scree thing. And they're doing it with the best bandname in town.
