Three FBi radio shows, New Weird Australia, Unputdownable & Sunday Night At The Movies, come together to present ‘Unpopular Music’ – a benefit to support their station. They’ve pooled their collective networks and gathered twelve of Sydney’s innovative, experimental artists – all of whom are donating their time, with all proceeds going directly to FBi, helping to ensure the ongoing survival of Sydney’s home of new music.
The line-up is headed by Pimmon & Jeff Burch – playing both solo sets and a joint live performance, launching their new collaborative project, Mandala Trap. Pimmon has forged an international reputation for creating dense, challenging and engaging electronic music – and, under his given name of Paul Gough, also presents a show on FBi titled Paul’s Play Lunch. Jeff Burch runs The Spring Press label, is one quarter of Sydney band Songs and launches his solo record later this year on Perth’s Farmer Frontier label.
The all-Sydney bill also includes:
- Comatone – in his only live performance in 2009, following the release of his new 12” ‘Seasonal Fractures’ on Feral Media
- Kyu an experimental pop outfit who recently delivered an amazing performance at the New Weird Australia showcase at Sound Summit
- Anon aka noise artist, musician and label manager Anna Vo
- Scissor Lock, an experimental project from musician Marcus Whale
- Anna Chase, a multi instrumentalist and vocalist who creates lush, emotive songs
- sound artist, musician and chronic circuit bender Nick Wishart – long-standing member of Toydeath
- plus DJ Sets from Kevin Purdy (Tooth), Tim Ritchie (Sound Quality, ABC Radio National) and Tom Smith (Cleptoclectics).
Sydney design crew Sopp Collective have also jumped on board by donating their unique design talents for the event poster and flyer, featuring a unique series of ‘Unpopular Creatures’ – the degenerate ‘yin’ to Yo Gabba Gabba’s ‘yang’.
FBi Radio is Sydney’s home of innovative local music – and it’s 100% independent, relying on the benevolence of its supporters to keep it funded, and keep it on air. Help support the cause with Unpopular Music!
