We are proud to announce the imminent release and launch of our third album, Build Ruins, recorded back in 2009 with Japanese artist Ryota Yamamoto on electronics and Joe Cummins on trumpet. The album was recorded and mixed by Michelle Barry, mastered by William Bowden, and is being released by New Weird Australia’s New Editions label. The album and poster artwork was created by Heath Killen, New Weird Australia’s resident designer and looks great. Without a doubt this is our best album to date, both sonically and visually, thanks so much to everyone who’s helped to make it so.
Anyway come help us celebrate at FBI Social, Level 2, Kings Cross Hotel, 248 William Street, Kings Cross, Thursday 16th June, 8pm. $10.

Tour may be a slight exaggeration but it is our first time playing out of Sydney metro, inner city scumbags that we are. So we’re heading down to Austinmer on Thursday the 11th November to play a gig for the 1/4_inch crew at The Headlands Hotel along with P.A. and Clocks and Clouds. Doors open at 8pm, only $5!
Audio and Video in one seamless feedback loop. Phil Williams and Andrew Gaddow return to 1/4_inch to give Wollongong another amazing show of light and sound. The beautiful melodies, purpose built instruments and haunting tones of Clocks and Clouds will take you to another dimension and 1st timers Forenzics an improvised musical collective from Sydney play psych, drone, art/post-rock, and post-punk leanings make their debut at 1/4_inch with VJ Shahane Bekarian.
We’ll be playing with Finn Ryan on drums, Joe on Trumpet on Kaoss, Dirk on who knows what , me on the usual assortment of pedals connected to my guitar, and Red Cell on visuals, all together for the first time. Check twitter or facebook for late breaking news.
Please RSVP on the Facebook event here!
Okay loads of news to catch up on….
We’ve played two gigs since my last post. Hopefully you’ve all been keeping up to date via twitter, myspace and facebook. If not – my apologies. We supported the excellent Duchesses at the Excelsior Hotel on the 21st October as part of Bird’s Robe Collective’s Menagerie 2010. Check them out – they a great blend of Mogwai, Sonic Youth, Interpol and even a bit of The Church in there. Joining us on stage for that gig was Finn Ryan on drums who did an awesome job.
On Saturday 30th October we played as part of Electric Brain, a group show consisting of some 15 print, ink, photo and paint artists. We played for the very first time with improvised visuals, provided by Red Cell, projected on a massive translucent screen in front of us – way cool. Video of the show to come…
