DOS4GW’s ‘Suiside B’ through Smokers Cough

Wednesday December 10th, 2014 by The Community

L-Burn Illuminati comrade and Community lad DOS4GW has released a new full length release. Suiside B is Melbourne, Australia producer DOS4GW’s long awaited full-length follow up to his 2012 Suicide EP. Suiside B is a beautiful yet filthy, avantgarde yet intentional, cohesive yet manic, shotgun blast to the senses. Particularly the eardrums. Speaking of drums, prepare to be pummeled by them. This is what computers listen to when they have sex. This is what extraterrestrials listen to when they experiment on earthlings. Listen and download it here: https://smokerscough.bandcamp.com/album/suiside-b

Colab this Sunday!

Tuesday December 9th, 2014 by The Community

One of the interns here at Colab HQ has just reminded us that the last Colab for the year is upon us ! How did this happen ? Where did the rest of the year go ? Time flies, etc.

Anyway, this months Colab will end out the year in the same trailblazing manner as we have been proceeding all 2014: creating fresh jams before your very eyes for the finest of Perth freestylers to wax lyrical over.

Our hosts Empty (fresh from the red carpet of his film launch) and Archi (still fresh from Ellenbrook) will be backed by a never-seen double keyboard lineup of Gordon Cant (no name rhymes please) and Matt Schmalkucke (good luck with name rhymes) – two men + two bass synths + two keyboards = ALL ACTION. Pete Forgus will be creating the rhythmic structure on which it will all hang and John Brown will be pushing MPC buttons and nodding earnestly.

We’re also welcoming a fresh new face to the Colab stage – the golden-piped man-about-town Sam Nafie will be joining us as guest vocalist – ladies, please form an orderly queue; gentlemen, please keep your grumbling to a minimum – it annoys the other patrons.

As always, Colab is free, but table bookings are suggested, so holla at The Moon before it’s too late …

Colab is Perth’s longest running open-mic freestyle night and falls on the second Sunday of every month. You can expect some of Perth’s best MCs to come down and present their amazing lyrical improvisations to an equally-improvising band.
