(September 2010) In this NWA podcast, Stu Buchanan chats with Canberra artist, label manager and promoter SHOEB AHMAD, and his regular collaborator EVAN DORRIAN.
SHOEB has, for quite some time, been one of the key voice of dissent in the city of Canberra – single-handledly staging an inexhaustible series of experimental music events, managing the renowned HelloSquare record label and producing music, both as a solo producer and as one half of SPARTAK, with EVAN DORRIAN. As drummer, producer and sound artist, EVAN is additionally a core member of POLLEN TRIO and released his debut self-titled solo release in 2009.
In Sydney in September 2010, for a local show with THE GHOST OF 29 MEGACYCLES and THE INFINITY ROOM, Shoeb & Evan chat about the recent SPARTAK album ‘Verona’, as well as upcoming records on HelloSquare, and Shoeb’s role as the first guest curator of the New Weird Australia compilation series, with the forthcoming release ‘The Sound Of Young Canberra’.
