Gypsy Throttle by Barons of Tang

3:44 minutes (4.28 MB)

 

The Barons Of Tang are a bunch of gypsy deathcore pirates looting the high seas of Melbourne's sweet underbelly. You'll likely find them beneath bridges burning violins and causing jelly wrestling mayhem.

Don't look for them though, they'll find you and force you to slamdance to sea shantys before you know it.

Soldier, nuke that voice!

2:03 minutes (1.88 MB)

No comfort to ease the pace of it's passing, undimmed before the breaking of the world, it will linger on in the legendary kill-file hidden beneath the TCP/IP stack under the pentagon. Of course, we all cut and paste ourselves, for we are the transplants of civilisation, the cross-pollinators of memetic positivity, the destroyers of evil myth and un-believers in lies, transhumanic fad creators, photons of half life in the blue beam of fractal reality.

"on her birthday she ate a vegemite sandwich, a piece of pavlova, and half a lamington..."

When the DJ played Spoonbill's Gumtree at last years Earthdance Festival in Darwin, the manic glitchy reworking of the classic Australian folk song had the whole crowd laughing hysterically as they danced underneath the shade of a huge banyan tree. For me, it was a perfect Australian outdoor dance party moment, down to earth, anarchic, psychedelic, playful, and great to dance to.
