Forenzics will once again play their completely improvised, post rock influenced, experimental music at the Gladstone Hotel, 115 Regent St, Chippendale, Sydney. This time we’ll be playing alongside Helpful Kitchen Gods, Honey Buckets and Curb, Sunday 27th October.
Our lineup for this show will be Matthew Syres on Guitar, Dirk Kruithof on Bass, Joe Cummins on Trumpet and Mystery Man on Drums.
Doors open at 5pm, entry is free, and the beer is cheap.
Forenzics play an intimate two set show in Macleay Bookshop, 103 Macleay St, Potts Point, Wednesday 22nd May from 6 – 8pm. Featuring Dirk Kruithof and Matthew Syres on guitars, and Joe Cummins on trumpet, Forenzics’ free improvisations will draw on post-rock, free jazz and soundscape influences to produce a unique experience in sound. This show is likely to see the quieter, more introspective and abstracted side of Forenzics’ sound as suited to the intimate nature of the venue.

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.

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…
We’re headlining at the Gladstone Hotel, 115 Regent Street, Chippendale, this Sunday the 5th September, from 5pm – 10pm. Supporting are Helpful Kitchen Gods, Special Patrol Group, and The Far Canals. Best of all it’s free! We’ll be joined on stage by regular collaborator Joe Cummins (Splinter Orchestra) on trumpet/kaoss, and Aemon Webb (Nhomeas, Varlets) on drums once again. We’ll be aiming to play for an hour from 9pm sharp so don’t be late!
Ed from Hoplite & Packhorse has released a short film documenting the Remote Control group art show put on at Tortuga Studios in July this year at which Forenzics performed two storming sets. The film features two tracks off our H3O album and also a very brief snippet of our performance on the night. Check it out above or on youtube here. Ed also took this cool grungy still of the gig.
