it’s so invasive…

Let’s get this flow on the road.

Noise annoys… it surrounds us all with an ever present insistence. It fills our screens, our minds… our world with a gaze of distractions. Just an invasion of pervasive white noise historywide. Propelled by an armada of commerce hell bent on leaching the goodness of this world for material gain. Driving into mayhem through time told this rumbling engine of capitalism has always been the undercarriage of this breaking chassis. Culture and country fall prey to this fervour of infection like a virus with no restitution

This ain’t no pop show… this here is an epic all out crashing the rocks show. From a year past of Units, Kiss, Weezer, and a feast of festivals we head into this coming year with a sense of escalation and elevation… all with a new album in hand headed your way - Invader. Teaming up on this rather invasive run is none other than great friends - those no wavin’ jazz punksters PARTY DOZEN… along with select appearances of - in Tasmania, locals THE SUBCULTURE CLIQUE; across VIC and WA shows comes the New Zealand digital hardcore of eggpunkers DISPLEASURE; and over NSW, ACT, SA & SE QLD comes Brisbane’s mechanical techno retro futurists MONSTER ZOKU ONSOMB!… and extra special blood red cream in selected metro zones is the glitter punk-pop of CRY BABY. This is gonna be fun. All the info below.

Absolute respect to our ever loving fan base. You are our all and everything. We commit to you in the manner you commit to us. You inspire us over and over. As we enter the water dragon of our 30th year it is your ongoing enthusiasm that rides us high and mighty. At the end of the day when we stand on stages across this land playing our hearts out to you we know with clarity and awareness that it is you our fans who are the base of our being. We never forget that and we love you all the more for it! Build with us.

In our limited capacity we will do our best to make a stand for the disposessed, disenfranchised and anyone suffering injustice in the broadest manner we can. The world is served best by compassion and cooperation. We, without question, acknowledge these lands we exist, create and tour upon as stolen and pay our respects to the traditional custodians of this life giving country both elders past and present.

it’s so invasive… tour 2024
with best friends PARTY DOZEN and DISPLEASURE

Party Dozen are a 2-piece from Sydney made up of Kirsty Tickle (saxophone) and Jonathan Boulet (percussion and sampler). Forming in 2017, they have become renowned in Australia for their incendiary live shows and three remarkable albums.
Blending elements of psych, hardcore, no-wave and jazz, their largely instrumental sets are punctuated by Kirsty’s unique “singing” style, screaming into the bell of her saxophone, which goes through a bevvy of effects pedals. The last three years have seen them tour Europe, the USA, Japan and China, release a record on Sub Pop and have Nick Cave feature as guest vocalist on single “Macca The Mutt”.

Displeasure is a high-energy industrial punk three-piece playing a hybrid of anarcho-punk and digital hardcore from Aotearoa New Zealand. Equal parts furious and catchy, buzz-saw guitars and politically charged vocals are propelled by heavy synth-bass and pounding electro-acoustic drums. Combining elements of industrial gabber, raging d-beat, and new wave eggpunk, Displeasure draws from the likes of DAF, Crass, Ministry and Devo, with a dose of the Mortal Kombat soundtrack.

The songs deal with the swirling mess of scaremongering bullshit rearing its increasingly ugly head in political discourse in Aotearoa and beyond. In the year 2024, things have reached the point where disgruntled science-denying farmers are teaming up with perverse public toilet-obsessed transphobes, raging anti-vaxxers and evangelical megachurch despots in a horrific whirlpool of shit ideas manipulated by white supremacists and alt-right trolls - with all of their delusional social media outrage pumped by cynical algorithms to swell the profits of hypercapitalist billionaires and their colonial space-fantasies. Displeasure highlights the absurdity of this trajectory, and stresses the urgency of solidarity in dismantling the extractive capitalist core driving the whole enterprise.

“Like some kind of politically laser-focussed Devo / Six Finger Satellite, the trio bust out furiously catchy and whip-smart, almost New Wavey hooks — feeling aptly sci-fi in their critique of Western capitalism's increasingly absurd, neototalitarian anti-human death drive (and accompanying symptoms).” - UnderTheRadar

We honour and acknowledge the Whadjuk Nyoongar people as Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and live. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and recognise that the land and sovereignty has never been ceded.
