'A Natural Low' was an event held at the East Brisbane Bowls Club on Sunday 20th November 2016 after it was converted into an artistic space by a local community group.
The night consisted of three acts:
A special, one-off reunion set from Teen Sex (members of Pluto, Faecal Flower, etc) featuring amp/mic feedback red-light clipped destruction & circuit-bent/hand-built electronics.
Cock Safari (Grog Pappy label) made the trip up from Newcastle, NSW, and this was his second set of the weekend after wrestling with the blown-out P.A. the previous night. This set is much more tenacious, thought-out, CS being much more relaxed and as such able to push his circuit-bent troniks & 8-tracks set-up to it's limits.
The Perfect Lovers are Brisbane's best, longest-standing free-noise/improv collective. A massive inspiration to all with a long, towering shadow above the town. Led by the inimitable Jamie Hume (The Auchenflower Red Light District, The Year of the Sex Olympics) and featuring members from Unique Oil Free Air, Blend 42 from Outer Space, Wtem, and many more TPL performed to a stunned few with one of their most cohesive yet relentlessly destructive sets to date since their reunion a few years ago.
All sets recorded live with a dictaphone and then dubbed straight-to-tape. No edits or any manipulation. Digital copies aren't the intended listening experience - tapes always sound better.
