Maximum Arousal is proud to present:
OREN AMBARCHI/ROB MAYSON/ROBBIE AVENAIM
THE DONKEY'S TAIL
Characterised by their harsh Machine produced Junk Metal sounds Defektro have been performing for over ten years. Formed In 1995 in Tokyo, Japan Dektro is an insane machine noize unit. The units original members Hirofumi Uchino and Ayako Honda crashed onto the noise scene in Tokyo in 1995. The present day Defektro unit features Hirofumi Uchino, a futuristic Dr Frankenstien who is the evil mastermind, father and creator of the machines used in Defektro. The sound is produced by the machines is sampled, effected, chewed up and spat out to the pleasure and dismay of the audience. Some of you may remember experiencing Defektro's mindblowing show at the Toff last year with Stephen O' Malley & Peter Rehberg's KTL project. Now's your chance to experience the real deal once more - Uchino is one of the true lynchpins of the Japanoise scene and needs to be heard to be believed!
Also appearing is a special power trio featuring renowned Sydney experimentalists Oren Ambarchi & Robbie Avenaim teaming up with the Grey Daturas' Rob Mayson + a performance from avant garage free noise supergroup The Donkey's Tail led by legendary artist John Nixon
