In this last EHE Presents for 2013 our focus moves away from more traditional notions of experimental music to acts who are both subverting and progressing contemporary Australian rock, punk and electronic music.
In edition #5, Ears Have Ears presents the launch of Melbourne neo-folk, post-punk stalwart LAKES’ highly acclaimed LP ‘Blood Of The Grove’ (No Patience | AVANT! Records). LAKES is the long time project of Sean Bailey who now performs in trio mode with Justin Fuller (Zond, Tax) on bass and Lee Parker (Tear Gas, East Link, Spite House) on stand up drums. Playing alongside Lakes will be Justin Fuller in solo mode, M.O.B and Lucy Cliche.
Ears Have Ears Presents #5 takes place in The Square, a centrally located live room located in Haymarket (nr Central), Sydney.
Lakes is the Bleak folk/industrial/dark punk project of Melbourne’s Sean Bailey. Since 2003 Lakes has put out numerous releases via Sean’s own Inverted Crux label, Quemada, Chapter Music & Pretentious Tapes. Blood Of The Grove is Lake’s 5th full length and was released in Australia by excellent punk label No Patience (Vaginors, Rule of Thirds, Straightjacket Nation). Blood of The Grove has received high praise from music media including Mess & Noise and Crawlspace in Australia since being released in the later half of this year. Ears Have Ears presents the official Sydney LP launch for Lakes’ Blood of the Grove.
JUSTIN FULLER (MEL)
When in solo mode, Justin Fuller (current member of Melbourne’s ZOND and TÄX) delivers a Poly-rhythmic audio assault. A multi layered collision of hums, tones and tremolo pulse, phased, flanged, delayed and distorted, shifting over and under sequenced tones and rhythms.
M.O.B. is Yuta Lagen and Al Haddock. Each have been involved in various Sydney punk bands in the past. As M.O.B. the duo move away from traditional punk and into open-ended, exploratory noise rock territories with guitar and synth.
Lucy Cliché is a solo electronic music project that explores themes of fantasy and existentialism, through abstraction of new wave, early electronic and dance music. Lucy’s work to date has primarily been with her bands Half High, Naked On The Vague and Knitted Abyss.
Ears Have Ears Djs will be spinning tunes between acts.
