DEFEKTRO @ The Tote 20/03/11

 "Many in Melbourne first witnessed the power of Defektro Live at KTL (Featuring Stephen O'Malley of SUNN O))) in June 2008. And it has been a long long wait for his return.
In the time between, "Metal_And_Bone_Servitude", a studio collaboration between Defektro and The Bastard Noise was released, selling out almost instantly and becoming a cult hit with lovers of noise worldwide.
Formed in Tokyo, Japan in 1995 as a three piece industrial/noise unit, Defektro is currently the one man operation of Hirofumi Uchino and based in Sydney.
Hirofumi is known and respected worldwide as much for the instruments and effects pedals he builds as the extreme forms of music he creates with them.

Live performances from this truly unique artist are all too rare. It is with great honour that WeEmptyRooms is able to present this event with such a quality lineup at one of Melbourne's greatest live venues.

Also WeEmptyRooms will be doing some killer deals on all label stock and distro at the mercy desk so vinyl lovers bring ya dosh."
