Gypsy Throttle by Barons of Tang


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.

And don't trust them, they stole my accordian and my wife, and I could hear them dancing all the way down the street with both.

After recently returning from sleepless nights of cheap booze and philosophical brawls with capitalist pigs at Adelaides Fringe Festival, The Barons of Tang have just release their new self titled EP which can be procured through their gigs if you know where to go looking.


Here's a hint;

Without Grace by Martin Martini and The Bone Palace Orchestra


Martin Martini and the Bone Palace Orchestra

Funk, junk, circus, rock with everything from punk to gypsy in between, Martin Martini and The Bone Palace Orchestra create an infectious sound of old-world grooves. Coupled with head-high Tackle-lyrics delivered in an uncompromising Australian pirate-roar, this collection of anachronistic political themes and the little things in life have drawn an ever increasing cult following hooked on the addictive music and the unpredictable nature of their stage shows.

The six-piece outfit was collected by the enigmatic front-man Martin Martini from off the streets of Melbourne and includes Peter Burgess on Tuba, James Macaulay on trombone, Arron Light on drums, Sam Dunscombe on Clarinet, Xani Kolac on violin and Martin Martini as the wailing and moaning master of ceremonies on keyboard.

Miles by The Pryor Theory

The Pryor Theory was conceived by the combined forces of Kit Katana (samplers and vocals) and Al Martino (drums and percussion). In true Melboune style the pair met through a handwritten 'wanted' ad, and at Cafe Zappa, forged the musical relationship that is The Pryor Theory. Combining hiphop, triphop and downbeat electronica production sensibilities with mellow vocals, samplers and gadgets with live instruments, The Pryor Theory will be appearing at a club, venue or park near you soon.

Nervous Doll Dancing...deep electrifying cello, chiming clocks, music boxes, ghostly singing. Moody, sweet, dark,emotional,beautiful. Imagine the dark and mysterious beauty of porcelain dolls, distant memories attached to chiming grandfather clocks, the nostalgic magical delight of opening your treasure box that plays a sweet melody while the ballerina goes round and round and you wonder if she’s getting dizzy yet?

Nervous Doll Dancing is a solo act by Francesca Mountfort. Layers of cello sounds that create dense textures with soaring melodies and sound effects, all created from the cello accompanied by clocks, music boxes and voice.

Comrades by Agency Dub Collective


Agency Australia




Agency Dub Collective are a live 6-piece from Melbourne, Australia. Heavily influenced by the revolutionary musical styles born in Jamaica, their music ranges from poignant downbeat dub and cruisy skanking roots styles to lively dancehall and stepper rhythms. Bass-heavy grooves are dappled with echo-drenched guitar and keyboards, interspersed with synths, samples and the plaintive cry of the melodica. Sometimes chilled-out, beautiful and classic, at other times futuristic, Agency Dub are always fresh and ever-evolving. Their passionate and articulate frontman, 3oB, delivers a variegated homogeneity of vocal stylings, ranging from sweet reggae falsetto to rowdy rap and ragga. Seeking to reflect the interconnectedness of all things (I&I), the lyrics connect personal and global themes and express a vision of humanity beyond the current capitalist paradigm.

'Comrades' features an excerpt from Yousef of Palestine Remembered (3CR) and is taken from their self-produced 2006 release, Insurgency.
