No one had linked outer space, visually, with classical music, aurally, but Kubrick was there first. Kubrick also used four avant-garde compositions by Gyorgy Ligeti that employ micropolyphony, the use of sustained dissonant chords that shift slowly.
Other Ligeti works in the film include Lux Aeterna, the second movement of his Requiem, and an electronically altered form of Aventures.
The Chorus sang the spots off the modern music. Its last chapter, from Jupiter to infinity. There was a reason we smelt pot smoke wafting outside Davies Hall. But when the Symphony launched into the great Zarathustra fanfare, the audience went nuts. Anyone who loves musical theatre knows the thrill of the standout number that brings an audience to its feet in tumultuous applause. First Nachman has to define the term, and what he comes up with seems similar to what that Supreme Court Justice said about pornography, i.
He quotes choreographer-performer Tommy Tune in his introduction with an insightful definition. Jersey Boys? This week, find Victoria A. But all of them seem to have legitimately stopped the show at one time or another.
Any further step toward consummation of the misapprehension would suggest homosexual inclinations — and that is a transgression that cannot be accepted. Men in dresses have long been a. But in those shows, the men become outsized caricatures of the feminine mystique, which is not at all what the men who visit Casa Valentina are about. Ready-to-wear dresses off the rack are the preferred garb. Through much of the first act, the tone is light as the regulars gather for another getaway from their male-defined roles, gently bickering among themselves, taking a newbie under their wings, and welcoming a special guest.
Employing a metaphor invoked in the play, that guest is a social-activist serpent in this Garden of Eden who comes bearing promises of increased social acceptance for the heterosexual transvestite but at a cost of ruining lives and exposing any hints of homosexuality.
As Valentina, Paul Rodrigues projects a self-confidence that disguises imminent calamities facing the establishment that carries her name. This is a production in which the wig master and costume designer get high billing, and deservedly so in the work by, respectively, David Carver-Ford and Keri Fitch.
This Casa Valentina is dressed for success, and this production hits the mark. Call or go to nctcsf. But not to worry. Just stick around for the second act. Even with the relatively demure first act, this production follows the usual Shocktoberfest pattern of reviving a Grand Guignol classic from a century ago, offering a couple of new or adapted pieces, and presenting a musical phantasmagoria.
In the first act, with shock temperatures mainly at a simmer, several performances and clever staging help provide the heat. Dan Foley plays the dipsomaniac in this period piece, and Foley has the look of a wide-eyed actor in the early talkies.
A newcomer, I believe, to the Thrillpeddlers company, Foley projects a clownish desperation and more serious anguish that well serve the piece. The story began as an episode from the s reboot of The Twilight Zone, and original screenwriter William Selby has adapted his script for the Thrillpeddlers production. The Twilight Zone-style twist is actually introduced fairly early in the story, as the drunkard seeks help for his addiction from a doctor smartly played by CJ Smith with an unconventional treatment involving a stomach parasite that has its own taste for hooch.
Earl Alfred Paus plays a stranger. But a sharpeyed reader was immediately reminded of this passage from Homintern, also recently reviewed. More good work from Jeske as the fornicating farmer, and from Crystal Why and Alix Feinsod as his jealous wife and libidinous daughter. Director Noah Hayden manages to keep the careening Demon Train on track, and he also provides a steadying hand on the bloodbath finale.
The catalyst is a strongman who tells his audiences that strength comes from the heart, and he means that quite literally.
David Bicha has feral intensity as the heavy lifter, who salivates over the sight of muscular roustabouts before snatching hearts from their chests and devouring them. After all that, the lights-out spook-show finale feels a bit tame.
Call or go to hypnodrome. Jeux is the life of which Diaghilev dreamed. He wanted to have two boys as lovers. He often told me so, but I refused. Diaghilev wanted to make love to two boys at the same time, and wanted those two boys to make love to him. In the ballet, the two girls represent the two boys, and the young man is Diaghilev. I changed the characters, as love between three men could not be represented on the stage.

What a relief to be able to focus the mind for a moment on a simpler conflict and a more courageous people, the Algerians of Algeria, who overthrew the imperial forces of France with little more than team spirit and rudimentary bombmaking. Battle cleverly serves both as history lesson and primer. Beyond that, for our jaded American eyes, this year-old view from the Arab streets is a stirring reminder that all creatures crave liberty, administered by themselves.
Like Rossellini in Rome after the. Nazis were expelled, fellow Italian Pontecorvo filmed in the capital city that saw the action almost immediately after Algeria declared its independence from France on July 2, He filmed in black and white, beautifully rendering the chiaroscuro sun and shade of this African oasis.

The year is , and Ali lands in prison, not for the first time, when he fails his mission to kill a cop. Two years later, the cop killings begin in earnest. Checkpoints are established in order to hassle the natives going about their business, and that only inspires more people to rise up in the twisted alleys of the picturesque Casbah and terrorize the French colonials in their faux-Parisian cafes in the European quarter.
Pontecorvo created a textbook, not so much didactic as dynamic. Au contraire. For Paris to decide, should the French be in Algeria? Should the U.

He had been stabbed in the leg in an apparent homophobia-motivated attack. Earlier in the year, Gerry Edwards, 59, was stabbed to death at his home in south London. In May, police launched at stinging attack on antigay hate crime in a bid to stamp out the problem.
Codenamed Operation Athena, cops conducted a series of raids on homes across the capital, arresting more than one hundred suspects accused of being driven by hate to attack gay people. However, we would like to urge any victims of such crimes to come forward and speak with us.
We have access to dedicated, specialist care to support you and keep you safe. I want to personally appeal to victims to report these hurtful, sensitive and insidious crimes directly to police or through a third party or non-police reporting site.

A notorious group of homophobic protesters are targeting live American Idol concerts because gay runner-up Adam Lambert is on the bill. Gay-age concern A Swedish nursing home specifically catering for elderly gay people could become a reality if plans go ahead. He says he is currently working with nursing home companies to determine the level of interest among elderly LGBT people and hopes the home will open within two years.
But he stressed that although aimed at gay people, the home would be open to anyone. It has been compared to Section 28, the law which prohibited discussion of homosexuality in UK schools, which was repealed after a fifteen-year battle in The admission surprised many politicians, who regard Clinton as the man who brought in the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act, which in effect gives legal recognition to heterosexual couples only.
Police confirm that they were called to the house and Hamilton was pronounced dead at the scene. They are awaiting post-mortem results. Birds of a feather Two gay male penguins have split up after becoming involved in a love triangle, reports The Metro.

X-Men canoodle in comic A popular comic book has become the first mainstream title to feature a gay kiss.

A peek behind the scenes at the numerous workshops run by Same Sky Community Arts Group, where community groups and businesses are putting the finishing touches to floats and costumes, reveals that imaginations have run riot.
The theme of Pride Beside the Seaside has inspired the creative spirits and the parade, which will have 55 floats — the maximum allowed - is bound to have a profusion of bathing belles and beaux, matelotes and mermaids, not to mention all those kiss-me-quick hats and much, much more.
Apart from the parade, the summer festival week 25 July to 2 August is expected to attract many thousands and, with more than events in the run up to the carnival parade and immediately after the main event in the park, there is plenty to choose from. Many of the community-run events have only been made possible by support from Pride. Meanwhile, the majority of the local businesses taking part in the festival will be demonstrating their support for Pride by donating much-needed funds raised at their events towards the running of costs of Pride.
For many though the park event is the main focus — it is expected to attract more than , There will be 43 community stalls, 35 exhibitors and over traders. Of course, the park event would be incomplete without all the bars and tents. You have a choice of 8 bars and all will be selling the same drinks at identical prices — all to ensure that no one is being ripped off. Whether your thing is to boogie the day away, line dance till you drop, enjoy almost non-stop cabaret or simply chill out Pride has ensured that you will be catered for on the park.
If you missed the fun of the parade or want to check out what your costume looked like then you will be able to see re-runs. Apart from regular information messages, there is a rumour as we go to press that you can post personal messages onto the screen — provided you make a small donation to Pride The Barclays sponsored community village with more that 40 stalls is where you can catch up with local and national charities and community groups — head for the north east area of the park.
There is a choice of eight bars on the park and Pride has ensured that they will be selling drinks at the same prices — so no chance of getting ripped off!

Live at FNAC 1-track cd. Kaneda send us a demo from one of their live-performances. It's a long mix of more than 30 minutes which lead us into a sombre ambient universe. It sounds close to a kind of theme for an imaginary movie They used a lot of spoken samplings from the tv-news while other parts are more electronic minded with a good rhythmic.
It seems to illustrate their wide spectrum of influences and who knows, that will maybe a good chance to get a deal? Kaneda, apt. This Italian project claimed to be influenced by Laibach and Discharge. The work becomes a hard electro-industrial entity like we're used to hearing the last years. Contemporary industrial music has nothing in common with the good-old industrial compositions of a band like Laibach!
It's now much more easier and simple to create a brute and noisy texture thanks to the modern technology. Lupinaria seems to be not the worst project in the style, but I'm missing the original and creative touch! Anyway, if you like harsh-crunching percussions and noisy treatments, you will appreciate this! Fear — Truth — Pain 9-track cd. Apoptygma Berzerk remains the same.
This Belgian project claimed to be influenced by several other formations, but their sound is the closest to the catchy synthie-pop EBM of the Norwegian master! Contact: david. I already compared their sound with the early and brute terror of Imminent Starvation.
Black Sun Rising France is now distributing this Belgian project. Demo 4-track cd Negative Records. First demo for a French duo that choose the German language to inject more power and violence into the music which already sounds heavy and noisy.
The influences are coming from Skinny Puppy, Ministry and pure noise. Hard and damaging! The only thing that counts 7-track cd. They compose a mix of elaborated electro structures and gothic moods, which serve as basis of the work. You can also perceive some vague techno traces and ambient atmospheres in the background. Contact: ng-pro reborn. Electronique 7-track cd. I remember this Belgian project from an early demo, which was rather poorly inspired in the EBM-style.
The style evolved into more wave and pop influences. I can only encourage Observe Reality to take their time and work out their ideas, but this is definitely a step in the good direction! Contact: Gunther Haegeman, Kaprijkestr.
DP:7 DP. Figures 9-track cd. Hailing from France One For Jude compose a very particular style of music. It sounds pretty different than the usual gothic and ambient releases. It may be an advantage, but still a hard challenge to find an audience for this kind of stuff! Anyway, the contribution of Eric Roger involved into Sol Invictus and a few other guest-musicians add an extra dimension and at the same time, a minimal touch. One For Jude come to combine a gothic basis together with some minimal elements like accordion and trumpet which result in acceptable back-ground music.
We can maybe call it modern-experimental wave music, but once again I'm not sure there's a real audience for it! Demo 8-track cd. Daniel Pfennigsdorf, Gardelegener Str. I personally missed their previous demo which got a good review in our pages and in several other magazines all over the world. It's not very often that we get the opportunity to discover a band from Israel and especially one who's more into gothic! They aren't into pure gothic because it's combined with a few other influences like free-jazz and vague psychedelic traces The result sounds a bit ambient and ballad-minded too.
It's not bad at all, but I miss a few details that would incite me to belief in their work! Cold hearts track demo. Contact: stale zipmail. Music for tifty bars 8-track cd. This American formation is now busy for a few years, trying to combine hard guitar riffs together with electronic structures. More than once they remind me of Cat Rapes Dog in a less melodious and funny day and more hard-core minded.
I've to admit that it's a weird comparison, but that's the way it sounds! I think the band would gain a bit more refinement, adding detail to the electronic parts while it's now too rough and anarchistic to my taste.
Nothing groundbreaking for the moment! More and more Russian projects are sending us their demos and the less I can say is that most of them sounding really acceptable.
Stillife is one of these formations, which try to intermix several styles together. It moves from electro-ambient to gothic to neo-classical styles. Nothing essential, but maybe interesting if you want to discover new horizons! Contact: stiv don. Starry blue 3-track cd.
The new demo of the Swedish Tabloid only confirms their strong potential! Their music is still very catchy, but evolves into a rather Euro-pop sound.
This is a trio that perfectly work out their ideas. Contact: tabloid-informartion yahoo. Sadistic sampler 9-track cd Hateful Society Prod. It's not very often that I am deeply impressed by the press-book of a demo band! Undercover Slut aren't amateurs at all. This Parisian combo has considerable recognition in their homeland, and in some parts of the USA That's not really surprising because they music sounds perfectly appropriated for the American market.
Moving on the edge of metal-punk and rock they're not without reminding me of bands like Christian Death, M. Manson, NIN I didn't feel the same refinement as the aforementioned bands, but Undercover Slut show throughout this "best of" that they already gained enough maturity to get a serious deal DP;6 DP.
Compilation track cd 3th Brass Recordings. Contact: johncult hotmail. Womb is a noticeable English underground goth-band. The spirit of the eighties is alive more than ever I'm not surprised to hear that the band has a considerable recognition and especially in the U. K where the good old wave music is still very popular! I'm not very fond of this old-fashioned artists, but I have to admit here that it sounds rather pleasant Anyway, this is for sure oneof these bands who deserve to get a deal!
Hailing from Dresden, Yipotash just released their 3rd demo. It's a worthwhile discovery if you're into electro-industrial stuff. The music is much more than usual noise manipulations and distorted drums. Yipotash seem to be in search of a fusion between dark-electro and electro-industrial sounds. The leastI can say is that the experience is quite satisfying! This is the progressive side of industrial music and I'm sure those that are in the more electro-industrial fraternity would favour the tragic "Siamesic death"!
Demo 6-track cd The Noise Department. The 6 tracks are terrific masterpieces, which left me breathless! The basic idea is built up around primitive cadences while the repetitive sequences are approaching a certain trance sensation!
The more you enter the trip, the more you feel the skill of the duo. Industrial-techno that means much more that a whole army of established formations in the same style!
Contact: The Noise Dept. DP:9 DP. Legitimate military targets. The band-name evokes the left-wing Frenchterrorist group which was active in the eighties The music is a mix between punk, industrial and electronic structures. It sounds heavy and aggressive! Call it simply cross-over, but it didn't really impress me that much! Amber Spyglass is an American trio from Boston who just seems to avoid any form of current influences. It's liketime stopped for them in the midst of the eighties.
The comparison with the new wave style is a matter of fact. There's nothing wrong with that, but when it's composed with that less creativity, I prefer to pass DP:3 DP. Bev Stanton already received a considerable recognition for her modern approach of electronic music.
It's not that easy to describe the music as any particular style, but the composition finds definitely a place in the wide layer of triphop.
She worked together with guest vocalist Lisa Moscatiello who's a Celtic folk singer and that creates a certain contrast. I personally like the triphop cadence and the pop structures, but the expressive vocal parts sound like being lost in an unknown territory There's no real harmony and that's rather disappointing.
Nothing exceptional here Machine Heart Prod. DP:4 DP. I couldn't really believe that this Canadian formation is still alive. I'm sure most of our young readers have never heard of them before! Quite understandable if you consider that their album "Aktievierung" released on Hypnobeat is dated from !
After some internal troubles and the acquisition of a new vocalist aka Monique Albert who was the lead vocalist of Voice Industrie the duo Andreas Gregor - Kris Helstrom also members of the more popular Digital Poodle hold their trust and went on with Bang Elektronika I remember their debut album which was a real great piece of cold EBM and in the same line as Digital Poodle.
Their compositions suffer from a little weight of time, but as their music was quite advanced in time, I'm sure that a few details could bring them back on the good way. They're still holding on a strong EBM basis, but it now sounds morepoppy than before!
The best cut is "TV set" which sounds like Inertia without the techno ingredients! You can easily hear that this band is very mature, but they now have to remove the dust of their work to get more chances to make a deal!
The Italian Blank rose up from the ashes of the gothic formation Headrops. It's quite surprising to see a band moving from gothic to That's the style the duo is now dealing with! This debut-demo stands for well-done, powerful body stuff with acid and techno traces and some bouncing bass drums. There's still a funny, but hard danceable cover of P. Lion's "Happy children". It's just a pity they close this very acceptable debut by a noisy-screaming piece entitled "Methanoid torp".
It's not very common to hear pure EBM coming from the Italian scene, but Blank is one of the exceptions to the rule! Riccardo Mattioli, Via d. Orsi 25, Langhirano PR, Italy. Call me alice Bassguitars are mixed with dry drums, some minimal electronics and dito guitar riffs. Apart from being rather attractive to look at, her voice is very much appealing as well. Musicwhise I like the second track the most for having some really nice hooks.
What I hear here can already stand the comparison with bands such as Clan of Xymox. The melodies are there, without wanting to copy anyother band. Ceoxime already appeared on a few samplers in their homeland USA , but I think they're less familiar to most of you. Their style has been built up with a strong wave basis, but the more I walked through their demo, the more I perceive pure electronic structures which even move on the border of modern electronic.
There's also a vague, but irresistible mystical element by the way of singing. The female vocal parts are like emerging from the depths, like a magical elixir Notice by the way that next to some remixes, this demo also contains work from other bandsthat has been remixed by Ceoxime. The first pieces aren't fully worthwhile, but the second part simply entitled bonus tracks sounds pretty cool!
You can here listen to the remixes the band realised for other formations like Diverje, Noxious Emotion, Function 13 and a few other ones. A demo that only contains 2 songs and 2 different faces! The second one is totally different, more into quiet electro-fields with a whispering-distorted male vocalist. It's definitely more original and credible! Anyway, 2 songs are not enough to get an objective point of view!
Ramirez, Parkview Dr. A dark celebration. The adoration for Gary Numan has no limits This guy decided to compose a tribute to his hero I've a lot of respect for such a hard concept, but at the other side, still some reservations because I personally think there are some sacred icons you better not tread on!
Gary Numan is probably one of them! Anyway, the devotion of Jim is easily excusable! The guy totally surpasses himself, working for eight months, day after day to produce his heaviest dream! Well, the result is quite honest and much more than a cheap emulation. Collins who played all the instruments, has composed a personal and more rock orientated version of the synth-pop grandfather!
He took some very old and popular songs like the unavoidable "Cars", but also give some space for the contemporary Numan-music like "Dominion day". The guy did it very well, but it's definitely too rock minded for me.
I'm sure a lot of Numan fans will purchase thi!! This French solo-project is a worthwhile to listen. The complexity of the structures left me breathless. I can't simply understand why such a talented young composer is loosing his time making demos.
Well, I suppose every big name started that way The bass lines are more than once reminding to FLA, but they've been recovered with high-tech contemporary influences moving from ambient to techno. The whole production remains instrumental, but that's not a problem. There's nothing wrong with this demo because everything is absolutely prefect. Each tone seems like a part of a puzzle and when all the pieces are intermixed to each other you get a real revelation: techno-ambient music for the further generations!
Last, but not least I want to add that the global mixing is simply unbelievable. There's no possible comparison, but Composite brings to the electro-scene what bands like Haujobb, Substanz T, Autechre etc brought some years ago Virgilio, 9 Rue Larigaldie, Juvisy, France. Crushing State is a very nice surprise that combines punching EBM-tones together with heavy guitar riffs. Crushing State also experiments with a few jungle loops and a vague dub mood.
I personally like the deep body bass lines and the way all the ideas have been pieced together. Crushing State sounds very talented and mature. This is an achieved demo that deserves recognition from a label Final horizon. Cryogene are from Canada and you can hear it The first cuts "Final horizon" and "Bloodstains" are pretty cool. I've listened to worst things before!
Rebirth ep. The demo ofCyme In Bloom sounds like an auspicious start to a career. This German synth-pop formation doesn't tread on new ground, but they deserve a special mention for their highly mature production. The compositions are quite elaborate and catchy as well. An excellent new band! The Spanish project Darkshinewar delivers a quite interesting style of music where they marry the electronic facilities together with traditional instruments like violin and accordion.
The songs are recovered from a vague melancholic expression while the Spanish language in conjunction with the acoustic instruments injects a kind of folk touch. I've never ceased playing in bands, one way or another and have actually, this last weekend done a bit of recording with my band, The Filthy Dreamers, only four songs and yet to be completed, but it'll be good to hear what we sound like. Musically it's what you'd probably expect — raucous and fairly aggressive with a sweetstain of melody smeared over the top.
We have been playing together for over two years, every Wednesday night; we go to a room in North Melbourne and make a racket for a few hours. We're pretty tight these days, though we don't actually play anywhere. I think we've done four gigs in the time we've been playing together. It's pretty funny. We are all WAY different people, with different lives, which is good. I need a bit of distance from people these days. Music is a really fucking personal and intense thing to me and somehow I've gotta keep fresh with the band.
Being in each other's pockets ends up shitting me. Good music is the first casualty. I'm not a pimp so I don't wanna slut my music. I've tried doing jingles and sitting with dudes making little melodies for fuck knows what, and I'm much better a slut with my body. I've had interest over the years to sing the same sort of shit, you know, covers bands and ads and the like.
Can you imagine sitting in your lounge and hearing you own voice singing the praises of the miracle absorbent features of the new panty liner breakfast food? I'd rather have acid injected into my ears, eyes and arse. Pic: Rod Hunt. Powersurge in a sewerfuckclub or a musicalneuroweapon, something like that… maybe, I'll keep ya posted. That was a band that really screamed in a beautifully honest and ridiculous way and I really miss it still.
It had such great potential and was on quite a trajectory, but sadly blew to shit on. As soon as we incinerated you had Supersuckers and Blues Explosion gettin' really big doin' similar shit.
Man, good times to cherish though. I've actually got the last gig we did on Hi-8 vid my girlfriend shot. Full respect to him for it as well. We would sit there with coconut shells and trays of gravel and make 'walking on gravel' sounds that were synced to movies and the dudes would give us pocket money for.
I DO actually think about it though. The band, not the cock in the door thing. With regards to Splatterheads stuff, I've actually just begun talks with some one who wants to do just that. Having said that, there's always someone in the band who's an abnormal compulsive hoarder. That prize went to Marty Bungle [drums] who was a card-carrying desk tape nut who got just about every gig we ever did on tape. We went out to punch and swing, to bleed ourselves dry and feel something rare and powerful.
I still check on the scars from time to time. The other bands had cooked the joint. We went on, having prepared appropriately with a few days of sleep dep, various bits and pieces pinned to arms and throat and warpaint donned.
Mid-set and there was an insanity in the atmosphere of the room that was infecting everyone I could see from the stage. Christo smashes a glass and starts carv-. Not scratchy lines but filthy slashes that take a second or two to bleed as the flesh lays open. The same broken glass and the same filthy flesh parting slashes across and up and down my left arm. The song screamed along when this beautiful young lady, clearly overcome by the moment, smashes her way to the stage, climbs up, lifts up her shirt, grabs that good ole glass and just rips into herself.
All over her stomach, and I swear to you, she dug the fuck in. The song started goin' all over the joint as she also had the most awesome tits we'd seen all afternoon. The song hit the wall at max vel and the crowd fuckin' went spare. I've got her face, her tits and her blood deeply ingrained in my mind. I'd know her anywhere. But no one knew her and I couldn't find her. It was true brutal lust and I never got to tell her or fuck her. The cool thing is, though, we all got the same scars.
What was your favourite Splatterheads song? I rarely hear them and when I do I get surprised cause I'll really love one that disappointed me some time. I love all Christos songs. Beauty is everywhere but the most beauty always comes of pain. Do you stay in touch with the Splatterheads extended family?
Do you know what they have been up to musically? Christo lives in the bush and has The Dirt Band. They have stuff available. What stuff has been exciting you musically of late? I wanna start a museum of fucked up RnR casualties and have myself nailed above the dumpster in Urinal lane. Only joking. I been at it for twenty-five years and still have a ways to go. Did the Splatterheads enjoy more support overseas or locally?
The only way you got any support either here or overseas was to get in a fucking car or a plane and go there and do your thing. That's what we did. We just made sure that when we got there that people didn't forget it in a hurry. Any Oz bands of the time had the same drill. And I wouldn't say it was a problem really either. Made ya work for it, with no easy road. Yeah, NOT. They didn't have the work ethic to play their arses off anywhere and everywhere.
Rock stars that flash themselves down the pan. There was a tradition, and I dunno if it still exists, but you had to get shit done overseas before Australia took you seriously. These days you can be hugely successful and not even leave your fucking bedroom. Which is great too. Fuck I dunno. Get there any way ya can, I guess, good luckstuff to ya. I mean, did we earn millions of bucks?
We totally succeeded in what we wanted to do — play our own high stressenergyrock everywhere we could, get fucked up and get laid. Hey mate, this took soo long cause I redid it a few times. Had to axe a bit of longwinded shit.
Got distracted a few times. The older I get the bigger the distractions seem to get. I wanna talk more some time. Be warned, it can be a lengthy process. Be cool brother and we will meet at the right time. A tattooist by profession, Donny Rat has for many years been producing his own deranged comic art. His worlds are inhabited by mutated freaks with swastikas emblazoned on their phalluses, tattooed females with forked tongues and multiple aggressive vaginas and much more unexplainable stuff.
To enter the world of the Rat, one must first cross the threshold of decency. The following interview was conducted via correspondence, with Danger issuing the music questions, Glenno handling the art questions and Donny Rat shooting his mouth off in response. From being in the Rats, I presume?
Is there a cool story beyond that? But yeah, the name does come directly from being in The Rats. There was always the odd band around — uni students and rich kids slumming it mainly.
Long gone were the rough old days kinda shit. Even bands of the time like Rupture, Chickenshit, Heist and the like very rarely got out there and played live. So when The Rats started up — three pissed-as cunts, noxious state-housing pill-popping hoons — we started gigging around Fremantle our home base and the city [Perth], and we ended up doing literally hundreds of fucking shows over the years — anywhere, anyfuckintime. We purposely wanted to be shit. See, we emerged out of nowhere onto the scene — an unknown entity if you will — and ended up leaving an ugly stain.
Our legacy was to get away with as much crap as we did. I still do. Can you please give us a rundown on these bands? Rat: Aw fuck mate, I dunno. Believe it or not, I also sang and did shows in a short-lived Clash cover band called White Riot. Whatta slut! Dave sold dope, stolen car parts, all kinds of dubious shit.
They were pretty well known. By all accounts a walking, talking hard-on armed with a can of Coke and a bag of Samboys, a shoulder to cry on and a lump in his pants. As a band The Birnies rehearsed a lot but we only managed to play a few gigs and a bunch of backyard parties.
I was flat out with stuff like Sub Rosa, doing 'zines and stuff and then The Rats around this time, so I probably contributed to us not getting out too much. Zane went on to play bass in The Pimps, now in scumbag rockers Python. Dave Solo guitar now lives in his own world, jumping out of planes, occasionally boxing. Top cunt OK, Sub Rosa. With both bands I kinda mixed it up a bit. Like some of our releases could be classed as straight-up Oi! Sub Rosa was definitely the precursor to what became The Rats.
We put out a bunch of tapes, appeared on a few local and overseas comps. Fuck, we rehearsed a lot if I recall. Fucked up every gig we did. Lots of members in and out all the time — even punched a couple of 'em out before booting them out of the band.
It was somewhere around this time I got pulled into playing drums with this bunch of unhinged yobbos who called themselves Pitbull and Scum.
Must have been dole day. Pitbull would root his latest sleazy girlfriends right at the bar, put his head through walls, bite people When not on the goon or rooting stray runaways together, to relieve the boredom they'd head down to the local train station to punch on with the local Aboriginal youth. Bloody lovely fellas, great songwriters too.
Real Aussie Oi! Like I said, I was only their alcoholic drummer, nothing to do with the songwriting. Sadly we never really recorded anything, just a tape from the sound-desk at a gig and a couple of rehearsal tapes I used to tape everything. Now, Riot System, apart from a few shows, a few parties, were basically a bedroom band.
Who gives a shit? Real dumbshit kids stuff, as you might expect. This was the early eighties remember and we were rotten little skinhead kids having a giggle. I remember we made a rehearsal tape. Boredom is the key How would you describe the Perth experience from the perspective of someone that has seen a lot of changes over the years?
How was the scene when you came into it? How is it today? Bands come and go, people come and go, I stick around with my knob out waiting for the bodies to fall. Good luck cunt. All this local rock star hoo-har pretension and self-delusion perpetrated by misguided, misjudged formuladriven no-talents.
Like I said, we all love what we perceive to be OUR music. We all feel strongly about the music and bands we love, right. Bunch a whiney shit. Grow the fuck up. Or, if you really are as deep and depressive as projected, then stay the fuck at home and slash ya cock-vein Pull ya bloody socks up and get the fuck over y'self.
Do they really have concern about starving bloated kiddies in Africa? Are the cops really that threatening to you and your middle class lifestyle? Stay the. So any faggy youth-sexy trendsetter gets to see their suitably modern mug in print regularly and gets to build their scrapbook full of clippings and reviews and gets their year or two in the numbing glow of the shining music scene sun.
And bloody oath cunty, we use the press too! We promote the fuck out of ourselves. And we actually get pretty good support from the local press. But really, and this is most important, I got it fucking good. We play a shitload of fun fucking shows, most of 'em being more like a pissed-up party with yer mates and associates. And let's face it, The Homicides are always drunker and more drugged-up than the punters we play to and we still tear that fucker up.
I think that counts a lot. I know I crap on a lot… You'll get used to it Kicked out of home at fifteen, booze, drugs, crime, living on the street. I spent both my 18th and 21st birthdays locked up. Work that one out. And I was always a weird fucking kid anyway, preferring drawing stuff like pirates and car crashes and reading Christian comix and religious tracts to the company of other humans. I remember going through a big Adolf Hitler stage when I was in Grade 2 or 3.
A bit of a bloody outcast really. And glad of it. Punk rock probably saved me from total social retardation. Listening to this stuff, though, especially in the fucking suburbs we grew up in, actually made me more of a bloody outcast. But it got me out of my own fucking head, got me out of the bedroom; I thought maybe I wasn't such a fucking weirdo after all!
My first inch! Now I didn't know and didn't notice that the inch was played at 45RPM, just like a single. And it was the rawest fucking shit I ever heard. Try it at home kids, it's mental! And just as good at either speed Sorry mate, as I said me mates will tell ya too I do tend to crap on a bit.
Remember that, motherfucker. We all squat down to shit. Ya know what I mean? And thank fuck for that! To my friends both at home, over East and.
Punk rock too kids! The people that continually pat your back need bloody watching! Shitheads who perceive what they do to be precious, special or, god forgive, relevant?! Real balls. No dash. I fuck 'em Their haircut demands it, ya know. D'ya get it?
Everything's hip nowadays, everything is cool and acceptable. Individuality has become conformity! I come from a time when ya sat back and earned respect. When idiots got belted. Just when did our punk rock and hardcore become mainstream, or worse, safe?! Music scenes? Shit man, don't get me wrong, OK, I love our punters, even respect the ugly fuckers, but nothing really changes.
It all comes and goes like a pubic hair down the drain. Next please. Though I suppose in some ways I am very definitely part of some music scene and even responsible for creating some of it But it's an easy target just begging for a kick in the nuts. I manipulate it to my own means.
Kill John Butler. The Homicides are decidedly underground — strongly and arrogantly independent if you will. So all the crap has little to do with how we approach things.
Let me tell ya, mate, the older I get the more enemies I make. But also, my life, the band, friends, all that good good stuff, just gets better and better. Gimme a fucking medal. Is there any difference between the Dose and the Homicides besides the name? The Rats were doing shows over there, pissing on with the A. O and Blurters boys top cunts to a man! When we got back to Perthsville the band kinda broke up.
Piece of piss really. We started playing shows about two weeks later. Fuck it, ya know. We were just trashed, belligerent and having a lot of dirty nasty fun. So were our crowds!! Bodies flying everywhere, glasses and bottles flying, punches thrown, blood, puke, potato chips and nudity — you name it.
Our cobber, Big Col', passed out cold with his head in the bass drum while we were playing. We started to get banned a lot pretty. The name change? We were a pretty volatile bunch. Anyway, one night after an abysmal show I think I may have passed out mid-set this night. Not unusual mind you! We had a big set to out the front of the pub, he quit, we chucked him out. Hahaha, no probs. With Elvis temporarily out of the band I went, fuck it, change the name!
Hence The Homicides. Elvis was back about a month later and we continued on as normal. Like I said, no probs. Danger: Why did Elvis Overdose eventually leave? Obviously you shifting to vocals from guitar was a huge move. Rat: Elvis had had enough basically. The poor cunt was burnt out. I need a break. We go pretty hard onstage and off, and poor Elvis was just spent. Admittedly, we had gone a bit mad on our last Melbourne tour, our arsehole personalities unchecked, and Elvis had enough putting up with us and our bullshit.
Ya know, he used to beat himself up pretty good onstage, a bit of a mad cunt, always at full-pelt. There was no middle ground or downtime with Elvis onstage — all the time every time. The bloke was just rooted. Staunch as fuck. Regarding me taking over sole vocals and dropping the guitar, it was natural mate. Another piece of piss. Been there done that with like The Rats and Sub Rosa. If I was gonna be out the front I had to be able to give it everything I got, right.
Currently drunken guitar wizard in sleaze rockers Python , a real fucking mean guitar slinger cunt of a drummer though. Anyway, as it was, me and Bugsy ex-Mickey Flash had been talking about getting a band together for ages.
He knew all our songs already too. Too fuckin easy And apart from his stunning good looks and suave personality, the little prick can really play that thing like a motherfucker and has the heart and dash of a bloody lion. Our first couple of rehearsals with Bugsy we wrote like six new songs flat. Some girls inform me they saw him about ten minutes ago out back of the venue. I go out back and sure enough there he is, passed out in a puddle of his own puke!
I thought, this boy will do bloody nicely! We got him going and played an absolute blinder of a show.
