This week at the Make It Up Club we present three performance-based interrogations of string-based music from three very distinct vantage points. An all-too-rare Melbourne manifestation of DIY luminaries Bonnie Hart and Chris Nylstoch proffering their duo UnAustralians, incorporating drum machine-generated seizures, terrifying vocals and guitar devastation into the paragon of theatrical grindcore shreddery. Gearoid Brinn and Barnaby Oliver highlight the fact that once, long ago, the guitar was more than a tone generator for copious whizz-bang pedals - and there is still plenty of beauty to be extracted directly from a reverberating wire. And recent Hobart-emigré Tim Panaretos takes to the MIUC stage for the first time in solo mode, channelling countless decades of ouzeri- and tekedes-fuelled rembetika through psych rock sensibilities and jazz-debunking debauchery (not to mention brain and fingers) sonified via an electrified bouzouki.
