And that we were… and that we are. A little over a month before the Quarter Pounder is over cooked and served hot for your divertissement – the factory is fully tilted with processing the small goods – a veritable scoff of tunes covering our respective time at play all slathered in a creamy dash of visual mania and costumes galore (in collaboration with Spod, Ken Weston and Cindy Vogels) that will leave your mouth wandering the floor.
To give some fervently requested Northside attention in Melbourne, what with the Corner sold out so early in the piece, the punisher has managed to locate a HOWLER of a show for MON 4 NOV. Joining us for that one SHONEN KNIFE and DICKLORD. Along the way we have the kids POGOGO SHOW not only playing THE LOST LANDS in Werribee (along with a festival Regurgitator set) but also bookending the tour at CLOKENFLAP FESTIVAL in Hong Kong over NOV 23 & 24.
Joining us for this head-brush of a warp drive through our times is none other than SHONEN KNIFE – Japan’s coruscating icons of sugar punk power popsters fresh from an extended USA tour. Plus our erstwhile compadres in the mirthful upending of contemporary culture THE FAUVES.
The tour kicks off on OCT 4 at Monash UNI, Westernport in San Remo before the a festival set at CALOUNDRA MUSIC FESTIVAL on SUN 6 OCT. We also present 2 days of extended celebration in hometown BRISBANE as presented by 4ZZZ and featuring on Saturday from 5.00pm – DICKLORD, TAPE/OFF and FAT. And on Sunday from 3.00pm – KOKO UZI, THE STRESS OF LEISURE and SCREAMFEEDER. Also joining the fray in Wollongong is YEAR6DISCO
WARNER MUSIC also announced a SILVER vinyl 25th compilation ‘QUARTER POUNDER – 25 YEARS OF BEING CONSUMED: THE WARNER TAKEAWAY’. A perfect meal deal for those who like their old stuff better than their new stuff, Regurgitator celebrate their 25th anniversary with the new compilation ‘Quarter Pounder – 25 Years Of Being Consumed’.
Set to be available as a 13-track silver vinyl edition and 19-track CD and digital title, ‘Quarter Pounder’ showcases Regurgitator’s magnetic appeal, an unlikely musical fusion as indebted to the live vitality of Black Flag as the synth hooks of The Cars.
