Collaborative Performance Between Two Of Melbourne’s Genre-defying Noise Groups: 10.10.08 / Pony 68 Little Collins St Melbourne / 9.30pm / $8 / Collapsed Toilet Vietnam is a quartet comprised of local volume dealers Robert Mayson, Simon Taylor, Mark Groves and Pete Hyde. The group deals in ultra-primitive scum rock moves, improvisation utilising low-life Saturday night clichés, and decaying equipment held together with swathes of gaffa tape. A reconfigured drum kit, willing throat abuse and a severe general reduction in approach have all figured heavily in past live performances. Embers is a brutal free-jazz/grind-noise quartet. The group is made up of Bucketrider members, Adam Simmons (various saxophones), Dave Brown (electric microtonal bass) and Sean Baxter (drum kit and junk) with Globe Unity Orchestra alumni, Kris Wanders (tenor saxophone). This collaborative performance is the kind of hell that induces a heavy panic attack. Supporting is Poletopra (Marco Fusinato/Anthony Pateras duo).
