Primitive Calculator's 'Little Bands' - Old Bar - 20 Feb 2014


Hot on the heals of interstate launch shows for their debut studio album, Primitive Calculators re-ignite their 'Little Bands' concept with a night co-curated with Neumusak at The Old Bar in Fitzroy, on Thursday 20th February.

 

The Little Bands scene originally ran over a couple of years circa 1978-81. The edict being that a band forms for a one off show, performs 15 minutes of 'songs' and disappears. With such a crash and burn motos operandi, the scene was a magnet for an incredibly high level of creativity, experimentation and fresh, raw expression. It also spawned collaborations that would go on to become the likes of Hunters & Collectors and Boom Crash Opera, as well as cult ikons back in the day, Shower Scene From Psycho.

For this event on Thursday 20th February, the likes of Harry Howard, members of The Dacios and Puta Madre Brothers have each formed Little Bands. There will also be a 'mystery headline' act to close out the evening!

An unique night, created by a band that, after 35 years, has never decided to sit still and press replay!
