REGURGITATOR it’s so invasive TOUR 2024

Posted

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 mechanoid techno retro futurists MONSTER ZOKU ONSOMB!… and extra special blood red cream in selected metro zones is the glitter punk-pop of CRY CLUB. 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 dispossessed, 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.

“Nothing ever works in isolation and neither do we.”

Come let the music invade your mind… more soon.

PARTY DOZEN – the FULL run
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 (New Zealand) – VIC and WA shows
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

CRY CLUB (selected shows – Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane)
If Cry Club — consisting of guitarist Jonathon Tooke (he/him) and vocalist Heather Riley (they/them) — can be distilled down to one thing (besides their trademark makeup of glittery trails of tears down their cheeks), it’s their knack for turning unsightly and complicated feelings into cathartic punk-pop. 

Pulling from their past lives in math-rock and musical theatre, Cry Club have entered their “villain era” on their second album “Spite Will Save Me”. A tight 10 track romp through all manner of rock ranging from Van Halen-esque hair metal to Rage Against the Machine Thrashers. Cry Club are eager to play Spite Will Save Me to fans, creating environments where fans can thrash through their feelings and embrace their inner emo. Join the club.

MONSTER ZOKU ONSOMB! (MZO) – NSW, SA, ACT and QLD shows
Crawling out of the pre-Olympic rubble of Meanjin – MZO! reform to unify Australia with Rave whistles, Hoovers and Tequila-infused Earworms!
Unlike anything you have experienced, this 5-piece ensemble has started riots across the planet with a cyclone of counter-cultural energy that 
confronts Human with Machine, Techno with Rock, and Retro with Futurism. “What is this!?” you may find yourself asking… 

MZO! are the WAKE-UP call that you forgot you ordered.
The ANSWER to the question you didn’t ask.
The CURE you never knew you needed.
And the EXCLAMATION mark at the end of time and space.
MZO! ARE the ELECTROSHOCK therapy our meta-modern age craves, and they are BACK! Amping up the power to jumpstart our disengaged hearts.

THE SUBCULTURE CLIQUE – TAS shows
The Subculture Clique are a boy+girl, rock+roll duo from hailing from Kettering, Tasmania. Mates Tenille Johnstone and Owen Swain make a melodic garage rock racket. Debut single “The Big Dance” to be released in March 2024 is co-written, produced, and mixed by Shane Parsons from Aus thrash-party-rock powerhouse DZ Deathrays.
The Subculture Clique will be very active in the Tasmanian music scene in 2024.
