This edition of Make It Up Club sees some serious sonic densities dealt to those who dare to delve into the more brutal side of the improvised music oeuvre. Robin Fox and Marco Fusinato resurrect their rarified duo on one of the scarce occasions when both are actually in Melbourne at the same time; brains will surely melt, but they'll be thankful for the privilege. Melbourne's premier Testicle Candy tribute band Susie's Gone take the leap from lurking in the shadows of looped Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Hawkwind to casting their own boogie-noise darkness with the help of the monolithic improvised heaviness of Hotel Wrecking City Traders. Garth Paine casts his Tempest to mangle beats into a glitch-ridden danceable detritus. And Fontaine mash together swirling loops of chaos with menacing brass, angular stabs of guitar and driving drums into a post-Miles angular rock-out to enrich both your consciousness and your neck muscles.
